After rocking Roseland Ballroom on his “2 G.O.O.D. 2 Be T.R.U. Tour,” 2 Chainz returned to “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” for the show’s second to last episode. Looking fresh as hell in a white suit, the Grammy-nominated rapper performed “Outroduction” off B.O.A.T.S. II with some help from The Roots.

He has launched his own limited edition sneaker with adidas and is readying the next chapter in his B.O.A.T.S. series, B.O.A.T.S. III.

B.O.A.T.S. is like a real healthy timeline of Tity Boy [or] 2 Chainz,” he told MTV News. “When I say, ‘I started from the trap, now I rap,’ it’s basically that.”

His tour with Pusha T and August Alsina continues through March with stops in Chicago, L.A., Miami, and Houston.

2 Chainz Gives Back for the Holidays

2 Chainz

2 Chainz is sharing his good fortune with others. The “Feds Watching” rapper spent Christmas giving back to his community. In his latest vlog, entitled “Give the Way That You Receive,” he spreads some holiday cheer at his annual toy giveaway.

In partnership with his T.R.U. Foundation, he hosted a basketball tournament at his old high school and his annual charity concert, where he collected toys. He then loaded a U-Haul with the toys and passed them out to young kids in the College Park Projects.

“My work ethic is due to the fact that I lost my pops,” said 2 Chainz, whose father passed away on Christmas Day. “I don’t like to sit around, be stagnant, doing nothing, wasting talent that God gave me, so I had to keep going before I start daydreaming and thinking about my pops.”

On February 4, 2 Chainz will kick off his “2 Good to Be T.R.U. Tour” in Boston with supporting acts Pusha T and August Alsina.
