Dude, where’s my car?

Even if you were born in the 90’s or you know anything about hip-hop, you must know the name Grandmaster Flash. He’s a more than just a hip hop pioneer and international master of the turntable, he’s is a legend! Little more than a week ago, Flash, whose real name is Joseph Saddler, dropped off his customized white 2014 Dodge Charger at a garage in the Chelsea section of New York City (23rd & 6th) and went to get his laptop repaired. Upon return to the garage, Flash was told the attendant gave his car to somebody that was” dressed like him (minus the Pumas) without surrendering a ticket stub or showing ID. (Sounds like an inside job to me) As we are in the age of the return of the show Punk’d and everyone has a video on their phone, Flash thought the parking attendant was playing a tasteless joke. Flash says, “Maybe this guy is playing a punk joke on me, or maybe he knows who I am and he wants to see if I’m gonna get crazy. Homeboy told me he gave my car to somebody with no ID that looked like me — what!” (Translation…don’t push me cause I’m close to the edge. I’m tryin’ not to lose my head.) In addition to stealing the car, the thief also got away with a vintage record worth $30,000, an Avalon pre-amp worth $5,000 and a microphone worth $15,000.

GMFlash 1 The attendant who gave away Flash’s car in this blatant breach of protocol, was allegedly fired that same day, according to Ultra Car Park Systems (don’t park there if you want your car). NYPD’s finest took a stolen-car report, but have not found the vehicle as we went to print. The story of Grandmaster Flash’s theft has been featured on the Today Show as well as TMZ.  If you encounter any of Flash’s stolen possessions or for updates, you can log onto or via Twitter @DJFlash4eva. What in the name of Red Alert was that former parking attendant thinking? How do you spell l-a-w-s-u-i-t??
