Robbers tried to make 2 Chainz “turn down” when they held up the rapper at gunpoint in San Francisco Sunday (June 9) in broad daylight.
TMZ reports that the San Francisco Police Department responded to a shots fired call just after 4:30 pm. When police arrived at the scene, the rapper born Tauheed Epps was reportedly uncooperative, telling authorities that he wanted to handle the situation himself.
The “Feds Watching” MC told police that his wallet was the only thing stolen. Police then reviewed surveillance video, which revealed that he was indeed the intended target of the robbery and that Tity Two Necklaces’ entourage of 14 fled from the scene like “cockroaches running from a flashlight.”
2 Chainz has yet to directly comment on the incident, but after he rocked the KMEL Summer Jam stage, he did respond to a fan on Twitter, who wrote, “Ni–a didn’t you just get shot?”
“haha yal believe anything,” Chainz responded.
