“I saw the gun first,” 2 Chainz told Atlanta's Hot 107.9 of the attempted robbery he was victim to earlier in the week. “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.”
The "I'm Different" rapper and his crew were confronted by two gunmen in broad daylight on a San Francisco street. Surveillance video of the group scramming was later uncovered by police, who described them as "cockroaches running from a flashlight."
"When I went into the street, there was another dude with a whole ‘nother gun,” said 2 Chainz of the terrifying experience. “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.”
After his sudden brush with death, the rapper is lucky to be alive. “I’m just excited about life. I’m so turnt up, you can’t turn me down. I’m just geeked about life," he said. "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. I come from this.”
