Tauheed Epps, known professionally as 2 Chainz, is an American rapper/media personality/basketball player from College Park, GA. Epps began his career as a member of the rap duo Playaz Circle along with rapper Earl “Dolla Boy” Conyers. Epps went by the stage name Tity Boi at the time. Following the release of the independent album “United We Stand, United We Fall”, the group was introduced to rapper Ludacris, after he moved to Atlanta and began working as a DJ. After taking an interest in the group, Ludacris recorded several songs with the group and played some of them on his radio station. Ludacris soon became one of the highest selling artist in the Southern United States. After hearing of their situation, he signed them to his label Disturbing Tha Peace, a subsidiary of Def Jam Recordings. Their debut album, “Supply & Demand”, featured the single “Duffle Bag Boy”, which became an urban hit. On September 29, 2009, the group released their sophomore effort “Flight 360: The Take Off.” Epps eventually left the label. Throughout his career, Epps was criticized by critics and fans alike who speculated that the name Tity Boi was meant to be derogatory toward women, although he denied the claims. In early 2011, Epps decided to change his name to 2 Chainz, which he perceived to be more family friendly. On March 24, 2012, Epps released his debut album “Based On A T.R.U. Story.” He has released the albums “B.O.A.T.S.2: Me Time” (2013), “CollieGrove” (2016), “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” (2017) and “Rap Or Go To The League” (2019).
