The 2 Chainz robbery drama continues. 2 Chainz hasn’t had the best few weeks since he was robbed by gunpoint in San Francisco recently. The incident of course was denied by the rap artist on his Twitter account, however police confirmed the crime did take place on the streets of San Fran while 2 Chainz was walking around with his entourage and security. Despite the police confirming the crime did indeed occur, the “I’m Different” star still tried to denied he was robbed until the video footage from the surveillance camera was posted to TMZ. After everyone could see 2 Chainz and his crew running away from the robbers, his security admitted they ran off because 2 Chainz ran away first.
2 Chainz explained why he ran away from the robbers in a recent interview, explaining big guns in his face was enough for him to get moving:
“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.”
As we reported recently, either the robbers themselves or associates of the criminals took to Instagram to post 2 Chainz’s license and bank card and gloated about jacking the rapper before quickly deleting the account. 2 Chainz responded on Twitter. He writes:
