2 Chainz Reveals He Fired His Bodyguard After San Francisco Robbery

2 Chainz was less than impressed with his bodyguard doing an interview after the rapper was robbed at gunpoint.

This past June, 2 Chainz was a victim of a robbery in San Francisco, California. The story quickly made headlines, as the rapper denied that he was robbed, but was later contradicted by then-bodyguard Harold "Hammer Strength" Folsom.

In an interview on VladTV, the Atlanta rapper addressed his bodyguard's interview. "He's not my bodyguard anymore," revealed Chainz. "I didn't hear his interview. I don't know what happened. I don't have anything negative to say. Coming from where I come from, there's certain instincts that you have. There's certain reflexes you have, and I can't expect everyone... You know, they have fire drills in school. But they don't tell you what's going to happen if it's a real fire in the school. They don't expect people to line up, and stop drop and roll."

"The experiences that I went through besides San Francisco, the experiences that I go through in life period: there ain't no rehearsal for it," added 2 Chainz. "And so, I can't expect everybody to know what to do, how to move, how to do certain things, because it's different habitats."

Ultimately, 2 Chainz believes the matter is no longer an issue. "For me, not even answering that how I feel about that, I pretty much think I moved on. It was two guys, it was guns, I didn't lose a chain, I lost a piece of ID, and I think I'm fine. I don't drive anyway. The license was five dollars, I didn't get hurt, I didn't get shot, I didn't die, I did a show the same day, I didn't snitch. Nothing happened. It happened, it was posted, TMZ loves puttin' up stuff, and I kind of moved on. Did I feel some type of way? Yeah, because you got people saying they took something from me when ain't nobody took nothin'. Did I get over it? Sooner than people can imagine, because I'm from that."

2 Chainz suggested that anyone assessing the situation think about it realistically. "Anywhere in the world at four o'clock, you just gotta imagine gunshots, and what people would probably normally do. Except the imagination of people on social media who feel they can do karate and disarm."

    The fact that this dude said, "I didn't snitch", just goes to show you the f'd up mentality we have as a people. He's more concerned about his "street cred" taking a hit, than anything else. Smh...

    Good thing Lil Wayne doesn't need bodyguards. He walks around with true PIRU Bloods like Marley G and Capito Brigante. No one has dared robbed Lil Wayne and don't you pussies dare say 40 Glocc confronted them. Wayne wasn't in the trucks and neither was Baby. Only one there was the bodyguard making his way to the A Milli video shoot. Yall be praising 40 Glocc, the same bitch ass nigga that got beat up and pushed into the bushes by Game (a true blood) and then SUED him for video recording it. SMH. Pussy hypocrite shit. Wayne is a true Blood and gots connections. I dare any of you bitch niggas to confront Suge and ask about Waynes membership. Yall shook! Lil Wayne is the KIGN of HIP HOP!

      Wayne has never put hands on another rapper in all his years of talking tough. He goes everywhere with his bodyguards. They even follow him when he goes skateboarding with the white boys

    Dude coming off very insecure right now, if you have the means you're target point blank, nothing to be embarrased about, if you got jux you got jux move on and buy new shit that's what happens to flashy niggas, it's not like people thought he was a live brolic nigga or nothing, so there's no need to think people see him any different before the robbery, shit niggas used to rob LL in his physical prime everytime he stepped out the door, so why would we think this skinny jar jar binx nigga would be any different?
  • Kool Moe Dee the GOAT
    Why did you fire your bodyguard? Real niggas like Gucci Mane dont have a bodyguard. Besides you always talk how gangsta you are so whats up with that. Or are just some studiogangsta?
    • Anonymous
      yeah he said he wished a nigga would (wood) like a kitchen cabinet he said he keeps 2 glocks as his bodyguards....
    • PhillyMu
      Go ahead internet rap nerd, keep believing in rappers' image instead of believing in reality. Waka recently said in an interview that Gucci rolls with a lot of security, so the myth has been debunked.
    • Anonymous
      When did Waka say that? The last Waka interview I saw he said Gucci got no one left around him. Not even a bodyguard or security left by his side.

    • Anonymous
      I know what the fuck does that have to do with anything! LMAO Is he trying to say he trained and rehearsed what he was gonna do if he ever got robbed? He practiced his sprinting?
    • Young Guwop
      Most likely he is. lol!!!

    I love how he feels the need to keep assuring everyone that hes from the street even though he ran like a little bitch and gave up the goods.

    "You know, they have fire drills in school. But they don't tell you what's going to happen if it's a real fire in the school. They don't expect people to line up, and stop drop and roll." You only stop drop and roll if you on fire... In a fire drill you just get the fuck outside

    He still in denial about the whole thing I seee " Yeah, because you got people saying they took something from me when ain't nobody took nothin'" We saw the pictures of your ID and Credit card titty boi. Technically that is something and they indeed did take it from him. Didn't they get his phone too? Not to mention whatever else may have been in his wallet. They probably know his address and shit.

      There was pictures of his credit card posted too. Yeah he cancelled it but he still lied about not getting robbed.
    • Anonymous
      so then he contradicted himself because you cant say ain't nobody took nothin, then say they took your ID. Thats still something that was taken from him at gunpoint.

    As much as I dislike his music, I have to admit that he's a well spoken individual.
