Preview: 2 Chainz at Main Street Event Center
Tauheed Epps, otherwise known as 2 Chainz, came up in the independent hip-hop world before the days of Twitter feeds, Soundclouds and blog buzz. As one-half of late-'90s Atlanta duo Playaz Circle, 2 Chainz and pal Dolla Boy funded their own first release, United We Stand, United We Fall. Some folks got shot, some folks went to jail, but Playaz Circle ended up on Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace label and 2 Chainz went on to spit guest verses on countless ATL tracks and release half a dozen mixtapes. New album Based on a T.R.U. Story should be out this summer. Pack up that exotic and cross your fingers for some deep cuts before the night is through.
