2 Chainz Says He "Was Shot At" During Robbery Attempt

The attempted robbery of 2 Chainz

The attempted robbery of 2 Chainz in Northern California could have turned out to be much worse than what was originally reported.

Speaking with Atlanta's Hot 107.9, the rapper revealed that shots were fired during the attempt.

“I saw the gun first,” explained 2 Chainz “It was like a .357. It was so heavy he couldn’t really hold it. The gun was so big. That’s what made me take off running.”

The rapper continued to recall the robbery, which occurred in broad daylight. “When I went into the street, there was another dude with a whole ‘nother gun,” he added. “That’s when I knew it wasn’t like an episode of Punk’d. I was like this is real…I had bullet fragments in my hair…I think he thought he shot me.”

Still, 2 Chainz is maintaining a positive attitude about the situation. “I’m just excited about life. I’m so turnt up, you can’t turn me down,” he said. “I’m just geeked about life. Then when I saw the footage, I’m like it was real. They was on my ass!’ This was a sign. That’s all it was. I come from this.”

Listen to the interview below:

2 Chainz was approached by gunpoint by mutiple assailants on Sunday (June 9th) afternoon. No suspects have been apprehended by the SFPD.

    The Dude is trash any which way you want to call it, and is a prime example of everything wrong with the genre. I rally don't pay much attention or hold a personal grudge because he's making the moves in popular culture. Its just we've seen guys like this come and go time and time again and they offer nothing to the advancement of a culture or generation of kids that have nothing but hip hop to look up to while corporations churn out filth and have black people looking absolutely crazy. The culture has been diluted sold and the quality of todays music has been sacrificed and sold out for cheap artist selling cheap dreams. Real talent remains on the underground and doing it independent. We have to be contempt with real artist displaying us in a real light negative or positive, but the beauty of it all is the absolute rawness and the realness, thats whats supposed to seperate hip hop from the simple pop artist.

    I thought he said it never happened. Then video comes out and they are shooting at him? Maybe audio will come out too and he will say they had a rocket launcher & tear gas.

    If it's a sign does it mean 2 Chainz is gonna turn his life around? Change up his message. take a Snoop Lion route. You know what I'm saying. Cause if he does he might not sell as well. If he were to. So what if it's a sign. Saying that it is a sign. What comes of this blessed sign of God. Cause now that God blessed him, he's too blessed to stress being shot at again. You know what I'm saying. So what comes of that, prayer? Redemption? But without a changed life huh. No, God isn't looking out for him anymore than he's looking out for kids starving to death in Africa. Dude is fronting like he's a testament to faith. Another reason to believe in God, whereas too many rappers who arguably should have lived passed their due time, shouldn't have died. But this dude, thinks that God's on his side cause the shooter missed. Better yet the dude isn't even stressing the fact that he could of died. It was surrealistic, sure, but little recourse thereafter, cause the more he stresses it the less infamy he gets out of it. You know. Lets say he did die. And because of his death, there would be less shootings, for whatever reason, would you then say that there is a God? That God does exist. ?? Because he killed off a dude that talks about homocide. You know what I'm saying. God isn't looking after this fool. And I'm not saying if God wasn't looking after him but favored those who meekly deserved to live another day that he would of been shot or dealt with in some divine manner. This notion of what or who God favors is ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it usually comes from people that self-proclaim their own coincidental instances where they endured something tragic, it must have been predestined. No dude, you ran. You ran and you booked it just fast enough for a dude not to hit you with one bullet to take your fucken chain. God must of blessed you with skill of running right? God must of blessed you with that, otherwise you'd be dead. And even that could be allocated to your biological identity of being a black man. Which should, ideally, if you're not riddled with this divine trivia of God blessed the situation and not how quickly you went about booking it, really, fight or flight, and you chose to book it homie. You chose to book it. God didn't click. The instance of fear made you click. That made you book it. If you wanna give yourself credit, give yourself credit for being a rational pussy and booking it when you had to, otherwise you'd be dead, you know what I'm saying, but you wanna take the "It must have been God Route" Cause it's easier. It's easier to proclaim that somehow God was favoring you in that particular instance, and not how quickly you were or are to run. That's all that is. That's all it is. You came to senses and knew this dude would was gonna take your fucken chain and if that were to have happened you would of been a bitch. Done. Nothing more, nothing less. Otherwise dead.

  • God Bless the Deaf.

    He's saying it must have been a sign from a God cause he didn't die from the shooting. So lets say, for the sake of argument, a dude gets shot at 9 times, but doesn't die. Is that a sign from God? Or just that the shooter didn't have good enough aim? You know what I'm saying? What about kids who die from Cancer on a day to day basis. God must have not have been favoring them as much as they would favor 2 Chainz. Pleaaaase. Pleaase. God's not looking out for you or for the next kid who dies an in incubation chamber. There's little to no difference. "God", doesn't favor one life over another, or at least he, or she, shouldn't.

    2Chainz looks like a poster child for gay retarded gender ambiguity in hip hop and not that i am bashing, i do believe everyone has a right to be who they are or who they want to be but i also have a right to say what i want and it is that this genre(rap/hip hop) has been overtaken by corporations who much rather push this idea of these artists as confused but hip clowns who are not assertive and rebelious yet have "street cred" because they talk about guns and violence like they are immeresd in it but only know about these realties through music which when started was a wake up call but know its become a marketing tool.

      Shut the fuck up, how are you gonna say something that offensive and follow it up with, I'm not Gay Bashing. Then say you're straight bashing. You know say it's straight bashing. There's nothing wrong with consider a self-proclaimed heterosexual man not a man. You know. Women do it all the time to men, consider men a lesser man without having to resort to calling him a faggot or any thing that would allude to a degradation of women. If you try and call out a guy for not living upto his hype for not being a "man" then get at him for that.

  • HHp

    Good thing he survived, too bad it will make his hype much bigger

    "The gun was so big. Thats what made me take off running. And this is the same man who raps about being a big time drug dealer and using a gun. And he will continue to do so. And you faggots will continue to support him. This is what Eazy E would have called a 'Studio Gangsta'.

    • Fish

      @you are a dumbfuck - What I am saying is I would run if someone pulled a gun on me. But I havnt spent the last ten years releasing songs about how much of a gangster I am and how many guns I have and how many people I have killed. I think everyone knew the faggot was a fraud, now its just been confirmed. @anonymous, you understand the point I'm making - if you dont live that life, then dont rap about it.

      nah nigga you dont get it. If this dude raps about that life and then gets caught up and doesnt have his piece, its because he doesnt live that life. He aint about packin pistols and usin that shit when he gets run up on. Bitch faggot ass punk with no talent. Fall back fan boy

    • you are a dumbfuck

      Are you saying that drug dealers and people who use guns wouldn't run away from a person with a big gun? So because he raps about it, he should be a fucking idiot and stay there and get shot? Are you mentally retarded? It's called survival instinct, moron.

      Anyone in that situation can feel vulnerable. You in another state and no one around you are licensed to carry a concealed firearm. Unless your illegally carrying one your still a target for racist white officers who accost black men everyday without probable cause. Someone on his crew set him up, plain and simple. unless it happens to you man I would laugh at the calamity of others because God still has the last laugh. 2 Chainz admitted "It was a sign"- he also admitted on one of his songs he sold dope to his own mama so that should tell you he's paying attention to what he is putting out in the universe and it finally has sunk in that not only has he made it, but at what price is the sacrifice to his life?
