2 Chainz was robbed yesterday afternoon in San Francisco. According to a couple of sources, San Francisco Police are saying that the Atlanta rapper was robbed of his wallet and his cell phone. The incident apparently took place at a medical marijuana dispensary. Shots were fired, but 2 Chainz was not hurt in the incident. He ended up performing later that night at KMEL's Summer Jam, and went to Twitter to deny the incident.
There was a bit of confusion earlier this afternoon, with Radio.com initially reporting that it was an associate of the rapper who had been the victim and not 2 Chainz himself. This report has since been corrected.
As of now, police do not have any suspects in connection with the robbery, and 2 Chainz has not been cooperative in the investigation. More details will possibly emerge in the coming days.
Just got off phone with SFPD. 2 Chainz specifically robbed of "wallet, credit cards, U.S. currency and cell phone." Suspect still on run.— Jason Newman (@Jasonrnewman) June 10, 2013
