Tauheed Epps is an American hip hop/ rapper from Georgia but is better known by his stage name, 2 Chainz.

Born on 12 September 1977 in College Park, Georgia, Epps formed a hip-hop duo in high school with his friend Dolla Boy (Earl Conyers) named Playaz Circle. At the time, he adopted the moniker Tity Boi, and together they released an independent album entitled “United We Stand, United We Fall.” They were then introduced to rapper Ludacris (who was still just a DJ), who took an interest in the duo and recorded and played some of their output together.

It was through this connection that Epps was able to hit his big break. Ludacris had become one of the highest selling rappers and had invited Epps and Conyers to sign to his label, Disturbing the Peace. The debut album “Supply and Demand” was released in 2007, followed by a second album in 2009 called “Flight 360: The Takeoff.”

After leaving Disturbing the Peace, Epps changed his moniker to 2 Chainz to not have to deal with the accusations of how derogatory Tity Boi was. He then released a mixtape called “T.R.U REALigion” which peaked at number 58 on the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. In 2012 he released his first studio album with Def Jam entitled “Based On A T.R.U Story” and sold over 100,000 copies in it’s the first week. He also went on his first world headlining tour and was nominated for over 13 BET Hip Hop awards (four of which he won) and three Grammys.

In 2013, 2 Chainz ran into legal trouble, having a few run-ins with illegal drug possession. However, by September he released his second studio album, “B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time,” which featured guest appearances by a number of other artists such as Pharrell Williams, Drake, T-Pain and Lloyd.
