Tauheed Epps (born September 12, 1977), 2 3 known professionally as 2 Chainz (formerly Tity Boi), is an American rapper , songwriter and media personality. Schuberth: He was a really nice young man, and those are the kinds of players we had success with. It wasn’t like we’d go look at any old guy, so he had to be pretty talented for us to go over to Atlanta to look at him.
After what seems like a year of build-up combined with months of silence, 2 Chainz has finally delivered us his highly anticipated, LeBron James A&R’d album, Rap or Go to the League. Clocking in at 14 songs and just under an hour worth of music, let’s see if 2 Chainz can make it to the big leagues and become a Hall of Famer, or find himself stuck in the minors.
2 Chainz releases album Rap Or Go To The League. Rapper Tauheed Epps originally went by “Tity Boi” but changed to 2 Chainz to be more “family friendly,” per a 2012 interview with SiriusXM’s Shade 45. 2 Chainz releases ColleGrove – a debut LP from Chainz and Lil Wayne. An ongoing lawsuit with Wayne and Cash Money Records prevents Wayne from being named as a primary artist on the album.
His fifth studio album is as highly anticipated by fans as the rapper himself. 2 Chainz posted to Instagram that Friday can’t get here fast enough.” Take a look at the post below. As the reality star and her husband enjoyed the festivities, she also documented a silly moment between her husband and fellow rapper Lil Wayne.
The trio is featured on a new song titled Shoot It Out,” which can be found on a compilation album slated to be released this year. 2 Chainz got jokes. The Atlanta rapper called Tekashi6ix9nine a rat in a most hilarious way while he was out and about in NYC.
The 24-year-old born Megan Pete started rapping in childhood after accompanying her mother, Holly Thomas aka rapper Holly-Wood, to recording sessions in Houston. Megan’s career began with freestyles at college parties, and she released three mixtapes in three years with her mother as her manager, building her buzz while still completing courses. The rapper is slick and authoritative on the mic as she channels alter egos like Hot Girl Meg, who she calls the party girl, the polished girl, the turn-up queen.” Her debut album Fever, released last week, is a showcase for this alter ego. Hanging with Hot Girl Meg makes for a fun 40 minutes.
Theme Song” is a diss track. Danny is demanding respect from a new class of rappers ripping off his outlandish style and getting rich, instead of losing a label deal like he did. If he has a specific rapper in mind, it’s too tricky to pin down, but pity anyone whose music is compared to disgraced pastor Bishop Eddie Long with a thong on.” A$AP Ferg bellows affirmations in the background, like a hypeman chiming in via FaceTime.
Despite the bevy of young Atlanta rappers who have come up behind him, 2 Chainz remains one of the city’s most endeared hip-hop exports and one of few who can both rap about selling drugs to his mom and have his own Super Bowl commercial How does the College Park native remain relatable when he travels the world in search of obnoxiously expensive items (including a $100,000 martini) as the host of Viceland’s Most Expensivest? Sunday evening’s chat with hip-hop journalist Elliott Wilson, who currently works as an editorial director for streaming platform Tidal , provided insight into how 2 Chainz retains his authenticity and mainstream success. The conversation was a part of Wilson’s CRWN series, which is live-streamed on Tidal and features intimate conversations with hip-hop artists.
I am looking forward to running at the end of this year or next year,” the rapper confirmed to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. There is only one obstacle. The rapper doesn’t live in College Park, a town of 14,000.
On the court, he was known for his lanky frame, mesmerizing ball-handling skills, ability to play all five positions (if need be) and for his wet jump shot. Off the court, McGriff said, Epps was known for his propensity to call nearly everyone Shawty” with that oh-so-recognizable Atlanta drawl, and for his casket-sharp wardrobe. If someone walked into Epps’ and Robert Jackson’s college dorm room, they might mistake it for a Polo Ralph Lauren store.
With all these all-star features on his resume, is 2 Chainz hot enough for a Jay-Z feature? The subtle homages to Hov – sampling Lucifer” and Dead Presidents” – and shouting him out on Threat 2 Society” over a 9th Wonder beat are all perfect jumpers in form. Chainz has talked about working with Jay more than once, recently name-checking him on Burglar Bars,” and it seems Jay is willing to collaborate even though he apparently missed this album. It’s a bucket list item that Chainz needs before Hov really retires.
2 Chainz isn’t underrated. And even if you still think that after listening to Rap or Go to the League, he’s going to continue bettering himself, pushing boundaries in hip-hop and the intersecting cultures until that validation arrives.
This makes sense. People (usually) don’t walk sheep, the same as people (usually) don’t walk cats or rhinos. But here’s the thing, and something that I was surprised to learn: People actually do walk sheep. They do it when they’re training them to show them at competitions, similar to the way people train dogs to show them at competitions. There are actually a bunch of YouTube videos about it, which I did not know until I typed how to walk sheep” into the Google search bar. But what’s even better is that if you dig around long enough, you’ll eventually come across the following video, which is better than a video of someone walking a sheep. Instead, it’s a video of a sheep sitting in the back seat of a car with its top down wearing sunglasses and listening to 2 Chainz.
A3C has announced that rapper Tauheed 2 Chainz ” Epps has purchased a stake in the A3C Festival & Conference and is now part of the ownership group. 2 Chainz releases his fourth studio album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music featuring Migos, Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj and more.
The game at home, it was so big, we had a live announcer, the radio station, extra security. We just had a ball. Tauheed was someone you could depend on. You knew when he took a certain shot, it was going in; just go ahead and count that. You knew when we was down a little bit, you could count on him bringing us back. Everybody else was going to have to do their part, but he was definitely there to bring us back. We played another game against Cedar Grove when Tauheed hit a 2 at the buzzer to take us into overtime. And then he hit another to take us to another overtime, and I said, “Ooohh.” We ended up winning that game in three overtimes.
Born Tauheed Epps on Atlanta’s Southside, as an only child he learned quickly that hard work was the only way to gain success.

Story, for Def Jam With three platinum hits – “No Lie” featuring Drake , “Birthday Song” featuring Kanye West , and “I’m Different” – the album hit number one on the Billboard 200, and easily reached platinum status.
After anticipating trends like pills, EDM beats, and mall goth chic, Danny Brown has sidestepped them entirely on uknowhatimsayin¿. He’s re-focused on spitting memorable verses over hard beats, and as a result, created one of 2019’s best rap albums. It’s replayable with its 33-minute runtime, and the psychedelic beats ensure there’s something new to notice with each spin. Like the best stand-up specials, the album is meant to be passed among friends, choice passages memorized and referenced ad nauseam. As long as there are fans guffawing as their heads knock, rest assured, Danny Brown’s legacy is secured.
Rap or Go to the League, his fifth studio album, was announced in February 2018 as his version of black excellence.” In my culture, in my community, we were often told that it was the only thing and the only way we could get out of the circumstances we were put in,” he explains of the title. At the height of racial tensions across America, he elaborated on the concept as dissecting some of the brainwashing formulas used in my community.” Chainz is a product of College Park, Georgia and considered a success story, evolving from being an ex-drug dealer and ex-athlete to a veteran rapper who has gotten better with age.

The Hawks and the Rap or Go to the League” artist have collaborated multiple times in the past. 2 Chainz has performed as part of the popular Hawks In-game Concert Series twice, first in March 2015 and then again in December 2016. Each performance was paired with the release of special co-branded merchandise with both items ranking amongst the most popular items in the Hawks Shop and selling out quickly. Additionally, through the rapper’s The Real University (T.R.U.) record label, both visits resulted in funds and awareness raised for his philanthropic endeavors.
Spivery: I think if he had concentrated on basketball, and dedicated himself, he could be a pretty good player with his ball skills. He was very skillful and he could shoot the ball pretty decently. He didn’t have the best of shots, but with work and the effort, he could have been a very good basketball player should he have stayed in the system we put together at Alabama State. Where the basketball talent could have taken him after he finished college is a big guess, but he really would have developed into a good player.
Though her profile has risen to the level of Drake Instagrams and Khalid features, Megan Thee Stallion does not make pop music. She raps, she’s excellent, and she knows it. I’m a real rap bih, this ain’t no pop sht,” she ad-libs victoriously on her first song Realer.” Sure, pop music has eagerly siphoned from rap this decade, but rappers have been drawing lines in the sand since Q-Tip said Rap is not pop, if you call it that then stop” in ‘91. Nowadays, the A Tribe Called Quest auteur is still pushing rap forward as an executive producer for Fever.
Artistically, 2 Chainz opens the conversation admitting that he wants to build a sustainable career and lasting legacy in Rap. He adds that he wants to insert jewels in the music, in hopes to provide information for his community and the youth that look up to the MC.
Fever is not perfect. Best You Ever Had” strays a little too close to pop. Halfway through an album of knocking beats, it’s jarring to hear Megan’s voice coated in electronic sheen, sharing space with a recorder loop. In headphones the project becomes a bit repetitive in the back half, but it won’t be noticeable blaring out of club speakers. Given how quickly she’s befriended so many other stellar young female rappers, it would have been great to hear her spar with some of them on her debut.
Sex Talk,” the album’s lead single, is a showcase for Megan’s bars. I’ma bust quick if your lips soft,” she raps in short bursts around distorted bass and snaps. Rock that ship ‘til ya blast off.” In her second verse, she accents the offbeat to boast, I should be in museums because this body a masterpiece.” Though the song’s popularity was eclipsed by the video release for last summer’s more bombastic Big Ole Freak,” it’s a fitting introduction to Thee Stallion: her range of staccato to elongated flows is catnip for heads like her who grew up on freestyle DVDs, paired with a blown out beat riding the minimalist wave that’s subsumed parties across the country.
In some way, shape or fashion everyone should be working to attain the American Dream. But in rare cases like that of rising rap star 2Chainz, he doesn’t get enough sleep to dream. He’s too busy making the finer things in life a part of his reality.
Lebron really A&R’d this album. I honestly thought that was just for publicity. Let’s see if rap historian Lebron James can put together a proper album for Tity Two Necklaces. Watch the new video from 2 Chainz, “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Jhene Aiko.

Money In The Way” succeeds precisely because it it isn’t chasing grandiosity. The Ariana Grande, Travis Scott and Kendrick Lamar features are nice, but Rap or Go to the League is at its absolute best when everyone gets out of the way and lets Chainz be Chainz.
