Winnipeg Rapper Fresh IE Robbed of Gear and New Album
Two-time Grammy nominee Fresh IE (aka Rob Wilson), Peg City’s most notorious Christian rap artist, was the victim in a brazen daylight robbery in his church basement recording studio.

Thieves broke into the Winnipeg studio Wednesday morning (February 6) and made off with about $30,000 in recording equipment as well as invaluable hard drives storing new music from the famed Canadian hip-hop artist.

"Everything we’ve been working on — the brand new album and everything, and other people’s albums — is gone,” said Wilson during an interview with CBC.

Wilson believes that the perpetrators could possibly be kids that he mentors at the church, which he’s been doing for awhile now in his studio to keep them out of trouble.

"It’s pretty disheartening to know people are going to do something like that when you’re trying to do something good for the community,” Wilson said.
