UPDATE: It's being reported that 2 Chainz was not robbed according to the cops who responded to the robbery in California.
At first, it was thought that 2 Chainz was the victim of a robbery and was shot at, but there's been a slight mix up. Cops told radio.com that an individual from 2 Chainz's entourage was robbed and he was around.
“He was not the victim of a robbery,” San Francisco police said in a phone call Monday (June 9). “He was there, but he wasn’t the victim.
According to police, the rapper was walking with his entourage in the 800 block of Howard Street at about 4:30 p.m. when they were approached by a suspect carrying a handgun, who fired a gunshot.
While most of the group scattered, one member of the entourage reportedly fell to the ground and was approached by the suspect, “who robbed him of an unknown item and fled the scene.”
2 Chainz also confirmed he was not robbed via Twitter:
