Aspiring Rappers Kidnap & Extort Record Producer

A pair of amateur rappers kidnapped a producer after he tried to back out of a $50,000 deal.

Two aspiring rappers kidnapped and extorted a record producer in New York City, New York.

According to Gothamist, 33-year-old Ryan Mixon and 28-year-old Andres Lozano scheduled a meeting with producer John Fontein, son of bigwig broker Andrew Fontein, at the Pera Soho in Greenwich Village on Thursday night. After agreeing on a $50,000 deal, Fontein tried to back out of the deal and the two rappers kidnapped him at gunpoint.

Mixon and Lozano took him to the Fifth Ave Apple Store where he was forced to buy $3,800 in products and warranties, telling him that he had better make good on the deal or they would kill both his girlfriend and family.

They let him go, and Fontein headed straight to the cops the next morning. They've been charged with kidnapping, robbery and extortion.

    If your 33 years old and you think your gonna get a career going for yourself in rap music your chasing the dragon to begin with. The few people that age in the game who still have something going for them have been putting in work for a decade or more.
