The “No Lie” rapper security guard, Harold “Hammer Strength” Folsom called into Columbus, Ohio radio station Power 107.5 to shed some light on the incident.

Hammer Strength said they were walking downtown San Francisco at around 4:30 pm when three armed men confronted them.

“All of a sudden three dudes just jumped out with huge guns, .357 Magnums,” Folsom said. “They pointed the guns at us and we was like ‘Whoa!’ We thought it was a joke for a minute. We looked at them, we stopped, kinda paused. We thought it was a joke. Then all we heard was, ‘2 Chainz give it up.’ So we like stood there and didn’t do anything, and we kinda like froze, cuz we wanted to see if this was real. All of a sudden, the next thing you know, 2 Chainz kinda like backed up a little bit. And then he said, ‘Give it up. Give it up.’ And then all of a sudden he took off. He took off running first. When he took off running, we took off running. Then all of a sudden these dudes, they just start shooting. I don’t know where they shot at.”

2 Chainz later performed in the Bay Area following the incident.
