Rapper 2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight Sunday, June 9 in at KMEL Summer Jam in San Francisco, California.
Two shots were fired just after 4:30pm, but neither reached their intended target.
TMZ reports 2 Chainz – also known as Tity Boi – told officers from the San Franciso Police Department that his wallet was stolen, but nothing else.
According to reports, as officers attened the call, the Law & Order: SVU guest star told the police that he would handle the situation himself. His 14-person entourage, however, was seen fleeing the scene – all of which was caught on camera.
Sources say his friends “ran away from the incident like cockroaches running from a flashlight”.
One Instagram user and apparent blood gang member posted an image to his account with the caption:
“2 Chainz got his cornball a** stripped in the city.”
Another confirmation of the incident which had fans denying rumours via social media late into last night.
According to @GAFollowers – the Twitter account for the state of Georgia – the hip hop artist had been attempting to purchase marijuana cookies when the incident occurred.
Despite the possible severity of the robbery, some took to their Twitter account to make jokes about the alleged shooting.
Back in February, 2 Chainz – whose read name is Tauheed Epps – was arrested on marijuana possession charges. While in custody, he shared a snapshot on Instagram where he’s shown flanked by two officers. He was acquitted in April.
