2 Chainz

2 Chainz helped write the ratchet handbook, so it’s only fitting that he gives us a video for his B.O.A.T.S. II cut “Mainstream Ratchet.” The Atlanta rapper heads to Jamaica for the ratchet festivities in the fiery clip, which includes plenty of booty-clapping ladies and a cameo from Sean Paul.

2 Chainz is currently on his “2 G.O.O.D. to Be T.R.U. Tour” with Pusha T and August Alsina, which wraps March 24 in Washington, D.C.

2 Chainz Meets His Biggest Fan

2 Chainz

2 Chainz comes face to face with his very own Stan in his latest vlog. Scott, a car salesman, met up with the Atlanta rapper backstage during his “2 G.O.O.D. 2 Be T.R.U.” show in San Francisco. And he wasn’t ashamed to show just how much he loves 2 Chainz. He sold three cars to buy tickets and passes to the show and five cars to buy 2 Chainz’ new adidas sneakers, which he had him sign.

“I ain’t going nowhere but to the grave with these motherfu**ers!” said Scott.

2 Chainz was caught off guard, but humbled by all the love. “I just appreciate you, man,” he said.

When he was done with the meet and greet, Scott walked through the halls, challenging anyone who dared to call out the rapper.

“I just met my fu**ing hero,” he said. “I just met the guy who means the most to me next to my own father.”

Fresh off his performance at All-Star Saturday Night, Kendrick kicked back and watched Pharrell and Janelle Monáe entertain the crowd.
