The 21-year-old man told police he was robbed by someone who identified himself as the rapper DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, 42.
The unidentified man said he was at an Exxon gas station on US Highway 21 in Newark, NJ at 12:30 a.m. when he started a conversation with DMX about rap music, according to a report on NBCnewyork.com's website.
The victim said that as he spoke with DMX, a large group of men exited four Cadillac Escalades and surrounded them. One of the members of DMX's entourage produced a gun and demanded the victim's cash.
The man said he pulled $3,200 in cash out of his pocket and DMX grabbed the money out of his hand. DMX and his entourage then allegedly fled the scene in the four Cadillac Escalades.
The man told police he followed the Escalades and was able to get the license tag number of one of the SUVs.
DMX performed in Newark at a rap concert Friday night, according to NBCnewyork.com.
Police are investigating the allegations. No arrests have been made.
DMX, who has sold over 30 million records worldwide, has one of the longest criminal histories for a rapper. His arrests include drug charges, a parole violation, animal cruelty, and resisting arrest.
