There were rumors rapper 2 Chainz was targeted by gun-wielding men in San Francisco earlier this week, something he vehemently denied.
Well, the shocking moment was caught on CCTV video as the rapper was approached by gunmen in broad daylight on the street.
In the CCTV footage, the 35-year-old rapper is seen walking down the street with a group of friends when two men approach them, one armed with a gun.
2 Chainz starts running and falls down as one of the men stands over him pointing the gun at him.
Police said the rapper had his cell phone and wallet stolen, something the rapper denied.
2 Chainz wrote on Twitter, “Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that has been taken. Rings, chains, watch, money etc. Rule #2 if a rapper gets shot he usually go to hospital or dies.”
He added, “Nobody took Anything from me, i didn’t get shot, I’m not in jail, Don’t know wut else to tell ya. Sorry if I disappointed anyone, maybe next time. (sic)”
