More news regarding the latest 2 Chainz robbery drama. As we reported recently, the rapper was robbed in broad daylight on the streets of San Francisco this past weekend. Despite the police confirming the robbery, 2 Chainz still took to his Twitter account to deny that he and his crew were robbed. However, TMZ pretty much shut that down quickly with video proof thanks to a few surveillance cameras. Now that just about everyone has seen the footage, it’s pretty obvious 2 Chainz lied about not being robbed because he knew people would clown him and his crew for running away from the criminals.
Interestingly enough, 2 Chainz has decided to be real now about what went down and in his recent interview with Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9, he defends running away from the robbers. He tells Emperor Searcy:
“I saw the gun first. It was like a .357. It was so heavy he couldn’t really hold it. The gun was so big. That’s what made me take off running. … When I went into the street, there was another dude with a whole ‘nother gun. … That’s when I knew it wasn’t like an episode of Punk’d. I was like this is real…I had bullet fragments in my hair…I think he thought he shot me. … I’m just excited about life. I’m so turnt up, you can’t turn me down. … I’m just geeked about life. Then when I saw the footage, I’m like it was real. They was on my a*s! This was a sign. That’s all it was. I come from this.”
