IT'S OK 2 RUN, DON'T BE ASHAMED: Shocking footage of the moment rapper 2 Chainz was targeted by armed robbers!
Shocking video has emerged of the moment rapper 2 Chainz was targeted by a group of gun-wielding men during what appeared to be an armed robbery attempt in San Francisco.
In the CCTV footage, obtained by TMZ.com, the 35-year-old musician is seen walking along the street with a group of friends when two men approach, with one wielding a gun.
2 Chainz is then seen running in a blind panic and tripping up on the road as one of the men stands over him pointing the gun directly at him.
Police later told the gossip website that the rapper had his mobile phone and wallet taken.
However, 2 Chainz denied anything had been taken, writing on Twitter: 'Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that has been taken. Rings, chains, watch, money etc.
'Rule #2 if a rapper gets shot he usually go to hospital or dies.'
He added: 'Nobody took Anything from me, i didn't get shot, I'm not in jail, Don't know wut else to tell ya. Sorry if I disappointed anyone, maybe next time. (sic)'
The robbery attempt came after 2 Chainz landed in hot water again after he was collared for purportedly possessing Promethazine.

A backpack in the van had a marijuana grinder and trace amounts of marijuana, police said.
The rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, claimed possession of the backpack and was arrested, police said.

Last year, 2 Chainz released his solo debut, 'Based on a T.R.U. Story,' which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts and has achieved gold status.
He also has several Top 10 hits on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts as both a lead and featured artist.
After the arrest in February, 2 Chainz' website tweeted a photograph that appears to show him posing with two police officers.
Black said the Maryland State Police could not confirm the authenticity of the photograph but is investigating.

Epps was scheduled to perform Thursday evening at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. His website later tweeted a photo from the stage and wrote the 'show must go on.'
