On Wednesday, the Atlanta native took to Instagram to talk about the dangers of being rapper. Alongside an image of the text, “Success is dangerous. You sure you want this sh*t,” he reflected on the times he’s been in peril since his rise to rap prominence.
“Been shot at in San Fran , got arrested in Maryland , La , New York and Oklahoma , had a so call stand off with police in Oklahoma , Cali spot got broken into 4 times alll on tape and one of them even left they phone.”
He continued, “ALLL SINCE I BEEN A 'RAPPER' you literally gotta Pray that you make it back home safe !! But then you not even safe at home.. my condolences.”
2 Chainz’s message comes after Pop Smoke was gunned down in a Hollywood Hills home on Wednesday. His murder was initially reported as a home invasion robbery. Now, a new report via TMZ claims his death was a “targeted” incident, after surveillance footage “from outside” the home where he was shot suggests as much.
