2 Chainz Weighs In on Donald Sterling Controversy on ‘Chelsea Lately’

2 Chainz

After dropping his new EP Freebase earlier in the day, 2 Chainz stopped by “Chelsea Lately” for the first time on Monday night.

Decked out in a red plaid shirt, cuban link chain, and his own adidas sneakers, the Atlanta rapper, who got a basketball college scholarship, offered his thoughts on Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist rant.

“A few of us here have said a few things to our friends, whether playing or being serious, that we’re glad it wasn’t recorded and given to TMZ,” he told Chelsea before adding, “At the end of the day, he fucked up.”

2 Chainz, who was in court earlier in the day, also shouted out the judge, who gave him a sobriety bracelet after he copped a plea in his drug case. “He looked out for me,” he said. “I have stomach issues.”
