2 Chainz Bio

2 Chainz

Tauheed Epps – known professionally as 2 Chainz – is a multiple BET Hip Hop Award winner and Grammy Award nominated rapper and recording artist. Epps is originally from College Park, Georgia, where he went to high school with R&B superstar singer Monica; after his high school graduation, Epps attended Alabama State University to play basketball.

Epps got his first professional break when he was introduced to fellow Georgia native and Atlanta rapper Ludacris, who recorded select songs with Epps and his partner Early Conyers (Conyers and Epps performed and recorded together as a duo called Playaz Circle). Playaz Circle signed with Ludacris’ record label, Disturbing Tha Peace, and quickly gained popular attention.

Under the alias Tity Boi, Epps saw sustained success at Disturbing Tha Peace, but eventually decided to change his stage name to 2 Chainz because he found it to be more family friendly. In 2012, Epps released his debut studio album as 2 Chainz, Based on a T.R.U. Story, and it hit number one on the US Billboard 200. Throughout his career, Epps has worked with the likes of Lil Wayne, Birdman, and Drake, among countless other R&B and hip-hop legends.

2 Chainz performances are known for being rowdy and energetic and the hip-hop star continues to build his already growing fan base, so be sure to buy your 2 Chainz tickets as soon as possible!

The fact that 2 Chainz was NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY speaks miles about the state of the music industry, especially in the hip-hop realm, which 2 Chainz shouldn't even fall into. Yes, I'm a hip-hop purist both in the sense that I believe in staying true to the original cultural elements and much prefer the "golden age" artists. But although I don't listen to most contemporary hip-hop (primarily due just to sonic differences in overproduced sound and computer-centric beats), I can always acknowledge if an MC has talent or is doing something artistically valuable, and there are many out there. 2 Chainz isn't in that category. Perhaps I'm missing something about this guy, but every song I've heard by 2 Chainz exemplifies everything I hate about mainstream rap music, and after seeing how prevalent his music is in society, I can fully understand why people can say they don't like hip-hop. It's probably because they generalize an entire genre to popular music like 2 Chainz puts out, which only reinforces the characteristics that lack intelligence and artistic value in this genre. Lyrics and rhymes that could've been produced by an elementary schooler, "choruses" that include the same phrase repeated 15 times, and proof that if you have a "hot" beat by today's standards, you can get a major label deal and experience success in the industry. Or maybe I'm wrong, and I'm 2 Chainz actually does have merit and is actually trying to discuss subject matter that exudes sophistication and cultural significance. Perhaps "I Luv Dem Strippers" is a keen social commentary on the objectifying of women and the true representative value of the one-dollar bill in society. Is 2 Chainz really a man with a message, disguising positive, thoughtful messages as mindless club songs in order to reach the masses? Hmm... no. No, he isn't.

2 Chainz is an awful rapper. His songs are not catchy, and his actual raps themselves are not very good. The only verse of his I like is in Nicki Minaj's "Beez in the Trap," and that's mostly because of how much I love Nicki. He was the opening act for Nicki Minaj when I saw her in concert, and he was just not good. My suggestion is don't waste money on him, unless you want him to stick around longer that he should.
