2 Chainz, whose birth name is Tauheed Epps, is an award winning American Rapper from College Park, Georgia and is currently doing big things on the music front. Starting his music career back in 2007, 2 Chainz has since been nominated for three Grammy Awards, won 4 BET Music Awards, and won a Soul Train Award. He was even named Source Magazine’s “Man of the Year” in 2012. Today, 2 Chainz is working on growing his own independent record label that was founded in January 2015 – The Real University.
When his career started, 2 Chainz (known as Tity Boi at the time) was working with his high school friend Earl Conyers who went by Dolla Boy. The two formed a hip hop duo called Playaz Circle and worked with Ludacris to release their first album on the Def Jam Records label. The lead single on the album, “Duffle Bag Boy”, became an urban hit single and was performed at the BET Hip Hop Awards.
After working in tandem with Dolla Boy for several years, 2 Chainz decided he wanted to break away from the duo and pave the way for his solo career. In 2012 he signed his first solo record deal with Def Jam Records. His first album, “Based on a T.R.U Story”, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 147,000 copies in its first week.
2 Chainz is currently working on his own independent record label, The Real University. The label was founded in January 2015 and is already signing artists such as Cap. 1 and Skooly. They are gaining momentum have already released their debut mixtape TRU Jack City.
