Famous hip hop rapper 2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco last Sunday afternoon, according to police.
Billboard Magazine, citing police reports, said that the rapper, born Tauheed Epps, was walking with five members of his entourage in downtown San Francisco before a performance at the summer jam concert in Oakland. Three men, one with a gun, approached the group.
One shot was fired, and the gunmen reportedly made off with Epps’ wallet and cellphone, fleeing in a gray sedan.
On Twitter, Chainz seems to be denying that much of an incident took place, saying, “Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that has been taken. Rings, chains, watch, money etc. 2 answer that question…Rule#2 if a rapper gets shot he usually go to hospital or dies.”
The stories buzzed the night it happened and some fans feel mad that he was robbed in the Bay.
“My first reaction was to laugh. It was so surprising and sad— but at least it didn’t happen in Oakland,” said sophomore Kardel Howard.
According to reports, as officers responded to the call, the rapper told the police that he would handle the situation himself. His entourage 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.”
