2 Chainz Recounts Robbery: ‘I Had Bullet Fragments in My Hair’

2 Chainz

2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight during his trip to San Francisco last weekend. Surveillance footage showed the Atlanta rapper and his crew scattering when armed men approached them on the streets. Now he’s speaking out for the first time since the incident.

During an interview with Hot 107.9 in Atlanta, he recalled the events. “I saw the gun first,” 2 Chainz told Emperor Searcy, Mz Shyneka, and Mister Smith. “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.”

At first, he didn’t realize what was happening. “When I went into the street, there was another dude with a whole ‘nother gun,” he added. “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.”

The thief asked for his wallet, but he wasn’t carrying any cash. “He said, ‘Where dem bandz at?’ And I said, ‘I ain’t got no bandz on me.’”

The police arrived at the scene and tried to investigate, but 2 Chainz was uncooperative. “It was a misfortunate accident. I didn’t fill out a report,” he said. “I don’t think they were trying to rob me. They really was just busting on me on some real stuff. At the end of the day, it’s just a part of me growing as an artist, me becoming more pop, me becoming a superstar.”

The incident has caused him to beef up his security. “This was a sign,” said 2 Chainz. “The only thing it made me do was have another meeting about getting better security around me.”

Despite what transpired, he still showed up and performed at his show in the evening. “I’m so turnt up, you can’t turn me down.”
