2 Chainz can deny it all he wants but one of his security guards admits the rapper was robbed and explains what happened on the video that surfaced this week...
Last weekend there were reports that 2 Chainz was robbed at gun point in broad daylight in San Fransico hours before his performance at KMEL Summer Jam [click here if you missed that].
2 Chainz steadfastly denied anything happened but then TMZ released video footage showing the rapper being approached by gunman and running for his life before he tripped and fell.
2 Chainz' body guard Hammer Strength comes clean and explains what happened to Power 105 in Columbus,
“We went downtown to San Francisco — it’s broad daylight, like 4:30 in the afternoon. People were walking around and everything — all of a sudden three dudes just jumped out with huge guns, .357 Magnums. They pointed the guns at us and we was like ‘Whoa!’ We thought it was a joke for a minute. We looked at them, we stopped, kinda paused. We thought it was a joke.
Then all we heard was, ’2 Chainz give it up.’ So we like stood there and didn’t do anything, and we kinda like froze, ’cause we wanted to see if this was real. All of a sudden, the next thing you know, 2 Chainz kinda like backed up a little bit. And then he said, ‘Give it up. Give it up.’ And then all of a sudden he took off. He took off running first. When he took off running, we took off running. Then all of a sudden these dudes, they just start shooting. I don’t know where they shot at.”
“TMZ got it all like we just left and left him standing there, and we just took off. But he started running first, and we took off after he took off. So I don’t know what they trying to make it seem like. The bottom line is he just fell, the dude he grabbed his wallet from him, and his cell phone from him, and that’s all they took.
He has his chains on him, his bracelet and all that, and all his jewelry with him and they ain’t touch none of that. All they did is they got his wallet, and like I said, he ain’t got no money in his wallet. The bottom line is, man, it was a setup. We know it was a setup so, that’s why he told the police we will handle it.”Meanwhile 2 Chainz' Twitter page has gone silent and but his last Tweet about the incident was that nothing happened. That's his story and he's sticking to it.
