Now that security footage is available of him getting ran up on by a couple of men with guns in San Francisco, 2 Chainz shares his side of the story to Atlanta’s Hot107.9. Stating he was in fact shot at and chased but was never actually robbed in the end and is doing great. Check out some choice quotes and check out the full (lengthy) interview below.
I saw the gun first. 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.
When I went into the street, there was another dude with a whole ‘nother gun. 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. It was a unfortunate accident. I didn’t fill out a report. I don’t think they were trying to rob me. They really was just busting on me on some real stuff. At the end of the day, it’s just a part of me growing as an artist, me becoming more pop, me becoming a superstar.
I’m just excited about life. I’m so turnt up, you can’t turn me down. 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.
