Review | A Token White Guy… At The 2-Chainz Concert in Dallas

Posted by on April 9, 2012

Friday night, precipitous persona 2 Chainz arrived in a white stretch Hummer limousine, packed full of women and choice entourage at the Main Event Center. With a wingspan rivaling most NBA power forwards, 2 Chainz’s menacing frame appeared not a moment too soon before a packed house full of aspiring rappers and female fans.

In his past life, he was Tauheed Epps, a high school basketball prodigy recruited by Alabama State University. After playing one season for the Hornets, Epps formed Atlanta’s Playaz Circle with childhood friend Earl Conyers, perhaps best known for their hit single, “Duffle Bag Boy,” featuring Lil Wayne. Shortly thereafter, label trouble struck, along with the incarceration of Conyers, causing Epps to adopt a new nom de plume.
