Grandmaster Flash’s sports car has been mistakenly given to someone else by a New York valet, police say.
The incident happened in a Manhattan garage on the evening of July 16 and is being treated as theft.
Grandmaster Flash, 57, said the missing Dodge Charger had contained valuable vintage records.
The musician, whose real name is Joseph Saddler, tweeted that the attendant “gave the car to somebody that was dressed like me, minus the Pumas”.
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five were at the forefront of developing hip-hop with their celebrated album The Message in 1982 and the hit White Lines.
They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
