2 Chainz Says He's Gone "Cold Turkey" On All Criminal Activity

2 Chainz explains why guns were found on his tour bus, speaks on what would happen if an incident similar to the robbery in San Francisco took place again.

In a genre where a handful of artists have gained fame due to notoriety, Atlanta emcee 2 Chainz says he has no desire to be the rapper who sells records due to a lengthy rap sheet. During an appearance on MTV’s “Rap Fix Live,” the B.O.A.T.S. II: #MeTime creator seemed noticeably frustrated with the number of ill occurrences he’s endured over the past few months.

Most recently, 2 Chainz’ tour bus was pulled over in Oklahoma City and towed to a training facility when those onboard refused to let authorities, who said they smelled marijuana, on the bus. Upon arriving at the training facility, 2 Chainz and members of the rapper’s entourage were then arrested.

While speaking with Sway, 2 Chainz, who says he’s gone “cold turkey on all criminal activities,” suggested that he’s now being targeted by authorities due to the excessiveness of his run-ins with police.

“I never said I don’t smoke or nothing like that, but most of the time when we do things like that it’s not like we’re actually riding, going…For us, you get pulled over 30 minutes from the venue, 10 minutes away from the venue and it’s just always something,” 2 Chainz revealed. “Like I said I have a chef on my bus. He cooks seafood. He cooks everything. No police ever smelt food on my bus ever. Like ever in life. He could be cooking a whole onion with garlic…It wakes me up out of my sleep. No one smells the food.”

The Def Jam lyricist also touched on the now infamous robbery incident which took place while the rapper was in San Francisco. The rapper was allegedly shot at before surrendering his wallet to one of the assailants. 2 Chainz says that particular incident is the reason why authorities found weapons on his tour bus.

“And then for me I made so many mistakes…I made mistakes when I was like previous to being in this position. To where I don’t wanna do mug shots. I don’t wanna be on these TMZs and these news [outlets],” said the rapper. “I’m not trying to portray that. I don’t wanna be the rapper that’s tryna sell albums to go to jail or whatever it is. Because eventually you start looking like you an ignorant if you just keep going for little stuff…They said they found a grinder covered in residue. That’s what they said cause I read it and they found guns, which we told them. The guns were there. The situations that happened with me of course I have armed security around. Cause when somebody tried to kill me the police didn’t stop my bus then…So, at the end of the day I got two little girls I gotta get home to. I ain’t out here playing with these folks. You know what I’m saying? Any situation like that happen to me again somebody not gon’ leave there walking. And it’s not gon’ be me.”

2 Chainz’ conversation with Sway comes just days after the Southern emcee released his second solo album, B.O.A.T.S. II: #MeTime.

    He's going cold turkey from all criminal activity, but his short bus shorty flow is a felony in itself.

  • Don

    Basically, this nigga thought he could follow the "thug rapper template" which is talk as if he is a true thug/gangsta but when TMZ exposed his ass..he looked like an idoit. Honestly, I wouldve ran too. I'm not clowning him for that. Im clowning him for lying about it. He is a millionaire so what he gets some frivolous things stolen. Its not that big of a deal. Him lying about it is the ultimate fuck you move...and this is after he makes a song called "No Lie"...smh..hes needs the lame of the year award.

      no lie came out long before he lied about getting robbed but he did name his new album based on a true story 2, which is ironic considering he got exposed for lying like officer ricky

    Jay-Z has never committed a crime in his life. In fact, he snitched on all of his friends for a $10k cash reward. Is it any coincidence that EVERYONE who Jay claims to have been affiliated with was indicated, while Jay wasn't? And isn't it convenient that Jay was in Europe when all of his boys were arrested? All of the welfare recipients below who have something to say about 2 Chainz street cred worship Jay, who is the biggest fraud in the industry. YMCMB, we got the game by the clit.

      Never thought I would see the day that I even partially agreed with somebody as wack as dentalcavityboy, but he's actually a little right about Jay. Jay ain't never been as heavy in the streets as he claimed; he did hustle but he wasn't selling all those kilos & bricks. He really was a petty hustler just like you would see in any hood.

      More lies by dentalbitch.

    • dentaldamboy

      You're ignorant. Jay never stabbed Un. he took the blame becuase he had NO PRIOR CRIMINAL RECORD OR ACTIVITY. So he knew he would only get probation, whereas his bodyguard who committed the crim, is a real goon and would have gotten a long stint in jail.

    • Big Dan

      Why are we so ignorant, that someone is a bad guy for not "having committed a crime" and since when did stabbing someone and petty drug dealing not constitute a crime?

  • Anonymous
