2 Chainz' Bodyguard

WE'RE NO COWARDS!

And We Were Set Up

2 Chainz'
personal bodyguard says his posse was NOT running from duty when gunmen jumped them last weekend ... they were just following the fleeing rapper's lead ... and what's more -- they think the whole thing was a setup.

Harold "Hammer Strength" Folsom
spoke with Power 107.5 in Columbus, OH this morning ... telling the radio station they had just flown into San Fran and were making a downtown pit stop when 3 dudes pulled out HUUUUGE .357 Magnums.

"(2 Chainz) took off running first. When he took off running ... then WE took off running," Folsom said.

Folsom says he heard the gunman yell at the rapper, "2 Chainz ... give it up."

The bodyguard says the whole situation was bizarre ... because the bad guys took 2 Chainz' wallet and cell phone ... but didn't touch his jewelry.

He also doesn't believe the robbers intended to hurt anyone ... because if they wanted to shoot 2 Chainz, they definitely had the opportunity ... but didn't. 

Folsom says he's convinced it was a setup ... but he doesn't explain WHY he believes the rapper was targeted or what the real motivation could have been.

Like I believe anything that clown says.


Hey, does he have a new album coming out? Maybe he set it up himself for some free publicity.

wtf    

what kind of dummy decides that following around these negroe rappers all day is a wise career choice? all these morons do is shoot each other and smoke dope and deal drugs and walk around with their pants sagging so everyone knows that they are homosexuals looking to get sexed up their butts. and occasionally one of these clowns accidentally holds his gun straight instead of sideways and manages to actually hit something. so you would have to be retarded to even take that job. besides I can't imagine how bad his home and car must smell.

Are you a bodyguard yes or no? Is it your job to protect your client yes or no? If its a setup or whatever is it your job to protect? Are you only protecting your client if you know in advance? I hope he fired them all!!!!
