After denying robbery reports this week, explosive new footage of what really went down last weekend in California with rapper 2 Chainz has surfaced online.
In the footage, the Atlanta rapper is seen with his entourage trying to escape a robbery at gunpoint.
TMZ has obtained EXPLOSIVE VIDEO of 2 Chainz and his crew being robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco this weekend ... and the footage shows the chaotic moments as the rapper and his crew desperately ran for their lives. 2 Chainz and his entourage were casually walking down the street Sunday afternoon when at least 2 men approached the crew and pointed guns at them ... one in a white shirt, the other in a black hoodie. 2 Chainz and his crew immediately scattered -- frantically trying to sprint down the street while the gunmen chased after them. (TMZ)
During the getaway, he falls down and reportedly ends up losing at least his wallet.
One of the gunmen seemed to be having fun during the incident ... and gleefully skipped after the rapper while 2 Chainz tried to get away. During the chase, 2 Chainz stumbles and falls ... and one of the gunmen pounces ... hovering over the rapper with his gun drawn. According to police, the bad guys jacked 2 Chainz for his cell phone and wallet. Towards the end of the video, you can see a man running back up the street with what appears to be the loot stuffed under his clothes. (TMZ)
Coincidentally, the rapper denied the robbery ever took place.
"Life gone have its ups and downs , as long as u in the middle u good. So we good yal," he tweeted June 12th.
"Believe none of what you hear and half what u can see.... We outchea"
"Bond money https://vine.co/v/bl53YgTOggt"
"Once again if hating, it's your mama and your dad fault . Genetics haha"
"Nobody took Anything from me, i didn't get shot, I'm not in jail, Don't know wut else to tell ya. Sorry if I disappointed anyone, maybe next time" (2 Chainz's Twitter)
Earlier this week, Chainz found himself connected to robbery and shooting reports.
UPDATE: TMZ initially reported that 2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco, but SF police spoke to Radio.com and said a member of 2 Chainz's entourage, and not the rapper himself, was the victim. The rapper's group was approached by a man with a gun, who fired a shot into the air. Everyone fled the scene, but one poor bastard fell down and the perpetrator proceeded to "rob him of an unknown item." The suspect is still at large, and cops say all involved in the investigation "are being very uncooperative." (Idolator)
