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.
