Despite the police report, 2 Chainz took to Twitter where he denied that was held up: "Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that has been taken. Rings, chains, watch, money etc. 2 answer that question." He followed that up with: "Rule #2 if a rapper gets shot he usually go to hospital or dies."

According to Radio.com, Toomer confirmed again that Epps was indeed the victim. He added that those involved in the robbery "are being very uncooperative," and that no suspects have been located or identified.
