Lyfe Jennings Robbed of $120K Worth of Jewelry While in Oakland, “I Went Somewhere I Wasn’t Supposed to Be”
Lyfe Jennings was robbed of $120K worth of jewelry and more while in Oakland over the weekend, but the singer has turned the moment into a teachable lesson for others.
Lyfe was in the Bay Area of California for a series of four sold-out shows that started off on Saturday February 4, 2023. Upon arriving the Ohio native revealed in an Instagram post that he went somewhere he “wasn’t supposed to be” and was robbed of $120,000 worth of jewelry along with a handful of other important items.
“$120,0000 gone!! Smh could put 100 on a head but what would that solve.” Jennings wrote in the caption of the post along with a video that detailed the experience.
“I wasn’t even really gon’ even speak on this because most cats in my position wouldn’t even speak on it – but I’ma speak on it because I’m in the mindframe right now that a lot of things that happen in your life is meant to be spoke on so somebody else could get something from it”, he began.
“When I got down to Oakland, I pulled up to this spot. Again – another place I wasn’t supposed to be. Went inside and saw some cats blew up and basically bust the windows out the thing. [They] snatched my little bookbag. It’s like $120,000 worth of jewelry in there, my computer, my ID, passport, credit cards, all that shit.”
He continued: “And of course I was upset by the shit. You know, but I’m present. I’m always present so the shit that I wanna do, I just start thinking. That shit could have went all the way left. I was somewhere I shouldn’t even have been. I could have had that shit on me and them n-ggas could have came in like the one homie and just, you know, took it. Or tried to, anyway. I thought about the shit and just weird feelings came over me.”
“It’s like, with all the shit that we be doing out here, who the fuck is we tryna impress or tryna convince that we still out here about that life? Because I know I’m not. I used to be, but I’m really not. I’m not out here with bangers no more on the block and all that shit. And I just really wanted to share this because it might be somebody that got they foot straddling right now that’s still tryna be something that they’re not anymore.”
“It ain’t a bad thing not to be a certain way because that’s called growth”, he added. “In order to be something else, you have to let something else go”.

The message continued on, with the singer saying he was even happy for the kids who came up on his jewelry because “I like to see little n-ggas excited”. He did, however, note that he’d really like his computer back.
He concluded his video with words of wisdom to anyone who feels like they’re one foot into a new life with the other foot stuck in the life they’re trying to grow out of.
“I just thought I’d share this because it’s somebody that’s straddling the fence right now”, Lyfe said. “You ain’t gotta feel no kinda way about growth, man. I’m definitely just tryna grow. I’m in a great position in my life and you gotta respect the position that you in and you gotta respect the position that other cats is in because in reality, a lot of those cats that wanna be you could never even be you. They can’t fit your shoes, man. But yet you tryna wear they shoes and wear your shoes too. It ain’t gon’ work, man”.
