2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint, and that’s no lie. While there were conflicting reports at first, footage shows that the hip-hop superstar was indeed the victim. In the surveillance video, obtained by TMZ, 2 Chainz and his entourage are seen walking down the street in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon when at least two men approached them with guns.
2 Chainz and his crew scattered, running down the street while the gunmen chased after them. During the pursuit, 2 Chainz stumbles and falls, while one of the gunmen pounces on him with his gun drawn.
According to police, his cell phone and wallet were stolen. Towards the end of the video, you can see a man running back up the street with the stolen goods stuffed under his clothing.
When the story originally surfaced, 2 Chainz denied that he was the victim, tweeting, “Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that has been taken. Rings, chains, watch , money etc.”
