2 Chainz's Security Guard Explains San Francisco Robbery

2 Chainz's security guard Harold "Hammer Strength" Folsom called into Columbus, Ohio radio station Power 107.5 to discuss the robbery of 2 Chainz on June 9.

2 Chainz has denied that he was robbed June 9 in San Francisco, California. Today (June 13), though, the rapper's security guard, Harold “Hammer Strength” Folsom called into Columbus, Ohio radio station Power 107.5 to discuss the incident, which Folsom said did, in fact, take place. TMZ has also posted surveillance video of the robbery.

Folsom said that after arriving in San Francisco June 9, 2 Chainz and his crew headed to the city's downtown district. At about 4:30 pm, Folsom said they exited their van and were walking to a store when they were confronted.

"All of a sudden three dudes just jumped out with huge guns, .357 Magnums," Folsom said during the interview. "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, cuz 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."

Folsom, who says he is from Columbus during the interview, said that some of the media reports regarding the robbery were inaccurate. "TMZ got it all like we just left and left him standing there, and we just took off," said Folsom, who later added that he was right next to 2 Chainz when the robbery occurred. "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."

Folsom said that 2 Chainz performed as scheduled in San Francisco June 9. "We killed it that night," he said. "We pray, man. We pray. We don’t care. We pray, so as long as we pray, we feel like God’s gonna protect us.

      To the second Anon, nah bro, people get robbed all the time, just don't front and lie about it...trust me no one knows how you will react when someone pulls out a piece,especially if you are a civilian but if you're about that street life or at least claim to be, you gotta expect this type of shit and mentally prepare yourself. The point is he got caught slipping and his crew ran and left him. If they were street dudes, they would just brush their shoulders off and laugh about it. Right now they look like poseurs and are setting themselves up for future vics.

      so you would have stayed and fought off or shot at the three dudes who had their guns on you...rappers are not superheros they bleed just like us

  • Guns equals run

    Don't blame him for running from guns but his crew are a joke and need fired asap pay sum goons to back you up. The guys that did this didn't even get his chains why risk it 3 guns robbery on a street firing shots middle the day yet they still got scared the police would turn up and didn't get his jewellery............risking ten years for a wallet and a phone

    Top five hiphop fails 1. Rick Ross getting shot at wrecking car 2. Two chainz getting robbed and tripping on his feet 3. Gunplay getting beat the fuck up 4. Lil waynes multiple seizures 5. Gucci mane going to jail the same day he got out *honorable mention* chief keef crying for being sentenced to two months in juvie. These are the gangsta rappers of our time folks.

  • PACER SSD

    SO HE HAS SECURITY GAURDS WHO DNT HAVE STRAPS AND RUN AWAY WHEN PEOPLE RUN UP ON THERE BOY...HMMMM INTERESTING

  • Rap Fan

    This guy is lying too much. The TMZ video shows everyone running away then 2 Chainz running away. Also, the security guard is saying three guys when the video only showed one guy. Lastly, we don't know what was stolen and judging from the other lies I bet 2 Chainz got his chains snatched as well. I am wondering, how do you get robbed if you have security and your boys with you? Maybe 2 Chainz should hire better security with all the money hes making. Also, maybe he should get better shoes so he doesn't fall next time.

    ahahahahahahahah. 2 Chainz is a liar. Didn't think that the lil' surveillance cameras were gonna snitch on him and tell everybody how him and his whole crew are pussys and dipped like sour cream. And not one... NOT ONE of his homeboys, nor himself, was carrying any heat, or if they were, are "gangsta" enough to pull it out, let alone shoot. Buahahahaha. 2 Chainz is pregnant by the way...

  • sedop

    "like I said, he aint got no money in his wallet". SO WHY HE HAS A WALLET IF HE HAS NO MONEY IN IT?

    Why pay security so they can be on some Carl Lewis shit? Hell, you can keep your bread and become a TRACK STAR yourself. Lesson: Just cause you have security don't make you safe.
