Damn, how y’all gonna rob 2 Chainz? The Atlanta rapper was allegedly held at gunpoint Sunday while in town to perform at KMEL’s Summer Jam.
2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight Sunday in San Francisco … TMZ has learned … and police say the rapper’s entourage fled “like cockroaches” when it all went down.
A San Francisco PD sergeant tells TMZ … cops responded to a shots-fired call just after 4:30 PM. We’re told when they got to the scene, 2 Chainz wasn’t cooperative … saying he wanted to handle it himself.
Chainz told police his wallet was stolen and that’s all that happened.
Police reviewed surveillance video … which revealed Chainz was clearly the intended target.
We’re told video also shows Chainz and 14 of his people all “ran away from the incident like “cockroaches running from a flashlight.”
Police are on the hunt.
SMH. Like cockroaches though? Damn TMZ did Tity Boi dirty with that one.
2 Chainz has yet to respond to reports about the incident but retweeted a fan who asked him about the shooting. We’re hearing lil rumors that it all went down at a “medical mary jane” dispensary, so we’ll keep you updated as we get more details.
We love us some Tity… Stay safe out there!
Update Via CBS Local:
It turns out that rapper 2 Chainz was, in fact, the victim of a robbery at gunpoint Sunday afternoon (June 9) in San Francisco, the San Francisco Police Department now confirms to Radio.com.
This information conflicts with a report obtained by Radio.com earlier today (June 10), in which police spokesman Dennis Toomer stated that San Francisco police believed 2 Chainz had not been the victim of the robbery; rather, it had been a member of his entourage (“He was not the victim of a robbery,” he said this morning. “He was there, but he wasn’t the victim.”).
Several hours later, when Radio.com placed a follow-up call to SFPD, Toomer told Radio.com that the information had been correct at the time of the original call, but later in the morning, investigators informed him that the victim was actually 2 Chainz.
According to Toomer, the rapper was walking with his entourage in the 800 block of Howard Street at about 4:30 p.m. when they were approached by a suspect carrying a handgun, who fired a gunshot. While most of the group scattered, 2 Chainz reportedly fell to the ground and was approached by the suspect, “who robbed him and fled the scene.”
Toomer said the rapper was robbed of his wallet, which contained credit cards and cash money, as well as a cell phone.
Police also confirmed that those involved “are being very uncooperative,” and that the suspect has been neither located nor identified.
