Since music and entertainment are such integral parts of our world, T|P|Republic is launching a new feature called “the INDUSTRY”. Every Tuesday & Thursday we will highlight a tall person in the entertainment industry that is making a splash…whether it’s on the mic, in front of the camera or behind the scenes. Read our first feature here…
Music is the soundtrack of life! Anywhere you travel in the world there will be music that is traditional to the native culture and genres of music that are ever evolving as time changes. Even as I’m writing this post, I’m listening to some tunes (Beyoncé to be exact). Our first feature is a TALL making himself known for his catchy (and comedic) southern style punch lines…
Why we like him:
Every year or so there is a new face that pops up on the rap music scene and makes everyone pay attention. 2 Chainz has been that guy since he’s popped up on features with most of today’s favorite rappers including Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Wale and even Kanye West’s new single “Mercy”. If you don’t know him for any of those features, you may have heard his own single “Spend It” featuring T.I. …he’s the rapper shouting “similaaaaac”! Yes, like the baby food. Hey, you don’t have to be a genius rapper to get buzz.
2 Chainz is originally from College Park, Georgia and actually attended Alabama State University where he played basketball. He was previously signed to Disturbing tha Peace and is part of the group Playaz Circle.
