2 Chainz has reportedly been robbed and shot at multiple times in Oakland, California. This certainly puts a damper on tonight’s KMEL Summer Jam festivities, where the artist formerly known as Tity Boi was set to perform. Initial rumors say that the robbery stems from a marijuana deal gone bad. Not a lot of details have been revealed as of yet, but we will keep you up to date as the story unravels.
Update: While full details about the 2 Chainz incident have yet to be revealed, an Instagram user, and
apparent blood gang member who knows something about what went down uploaded a picture to his account with the caption “2 Chainz got his cornball ass stripped in the city,” confirming the rapper has been robbed. See the picture below.
Update #2: Everything Georgia is now reporting that 2 Chainz was buying weed cookies from a medical marijuana dispensary at the time of the incident, and that he was actually robbed in San Francisco.
Update #3: Could this all have been false information? 2 Chainz appeared at KMEL Summer Jam as scheduled, and cracked jokes about the shooting rumor on his Twitter account later in the night. Was 2 Chainz really shot at? According to the man himself, nope. Tity Boi has yet to address robbery accusations, though he did appear in two new Vine clips sporting both of his chains. Seems like this was all bogus to us. Watch after the break.
Update #4: TMZ reports police responded to a shots-fired call just after 4:30 PM. 2 Chainz told authorities that his wallet was stolen and that’s all that happened. Police then reviewed surveillance video revealing Tity Boi was the intended target of the gunfire. The video also depicts 2 Chainz and a 14 member crew running away from the incident like “cockroaches running from a flashlight.” Welp, disregard our last update. Looks like Mr. Chainz really did have some troubles.
Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that has been taken. Rings, chains, watch , money etc. 2 answer that question. Rule#2 if a rapper gets shot he usually go to hospital or dies. Rule# 3 we definitely got geeked up in San Fran , best smoke in the world. 2 blessed 2 stress. I reportedly killed summer jam tho!
#bayarea. Haha timeline filled with people that want me f*cked up . I tell them, get in line u can’t stop this shit. Ha
Update #6: Contrary to earlier reports, Radio.com now confirm that 2 Chainz was, in fact, the target of the robbery. Conspiracy theorists can now run wild, what really happened here?
According to [police spokesman Dennis] Toomer, 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, 2 Chainz reportedly fell to the ground and was approached by the suspect, “who robbed him and fled the scene.” Toomer said the rapper was robbed of his wallet, which contained credit cards and cash money, as well as a cell phone.
Update #7: 2 Chainz was really robbed, shot at, and he lied to us all in a sense. There is video to prove it. Watch the 2 Chainz robbery footage here.
