2 Chainz aka Tauheed Epps, is a product of the competitive Atlanta scene that spawned his first group, the duo Playaz Circle (in which he was known as Tity Boi). They made their mark back in ’07 with the rap-R&B-pop crossover hit “Duffle Bag Boy” featuring Lil’ Wayne on the hook, on the Disturbing Tha Peace/Def Jam label. A lifelong friend of DTP CEO/Def Jam recording artist Ludacris, 2 Chainz flew from the DTP nest to make it on his own. His first step toward independence was the 2007 mixtape, “Me Against The World.” Proving that he could stand on his own, he did exactly that with the double-disc mixtape “All Ice On Me,” followed by his two-part Trapavelli series. Both had cameos from the likes of fellow underground kings Bun B and Gucci Mane, as well as his 2009 street hit “Stupid” and the surprise 2010 radio smash “Boo.” Proving that he could write street anthems with crossover appeal, he capitalized on his notoriety with the back-to-back mixtape releases of “Codeine Withdrawal” (2010) and “Codeine Cowboy” (2011).
The 2 Chainz buzz had reached a fever pitch with the likes of Busta Rhymes, Young Jeezy Lil Boosie, A$AP Rocky and Pusha T jumping at the chance to join what he likes to call his “campaign” via his new label The Real University. The New York Times stated, “He’s an inadvertent humorist, and awe and wonderment often sneak into his verses, as if he’s still surprised by every blessing his new success affords him. You hear it on his recent work with Rick Ross (‘Party Heart’) and Young Jeezy (‘SupaFreak’), among others.” On January 27, 2016, 2 Chainz released the EP “Felt Like Cappin” the EP via online streaming sites and iTunes, and featured the single “Back On That Bullshit” featuring Lil Wayne. On March 4, 2016, 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne released their debut, self-titled album for the hip-hop act ColleGrove under Def Jam Recordings. The song collection is for sale now through all digital, streaming partners and is available for physical purchase.
