“2 broke girls, and one rich black guy.” – 2 Chainz
You never know where a catchy rap name turned slogan like “2 Chaiiiinz” will lead to. Georgia rapper 2 Chainz will make his TV debut on CBS’s comedy series 2 Broke Girls on Monday, February 11. A day after the Grammys airs 2 Chainz plays himself on an upcoming episode where Max (Cat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) are headed to the Grammys after meeting a big time record label executive who is so smitten by Max he flies the two to L.A. via private plane for the awards show.
The one passenger aboard the private plane is none other than 2 Chainz. He tweeted, “Meet my 2 broke girls….on set” with a video clip of him and the stars of the show. In real life he’s nominated for three Grammys including Best Rap Album for Based on T.R.U. Story. Look at what a name change can do. Tity Boi went years as a fairly unknown rapper under Ludacris‘ guidance. He changes his name to 2 Chainz and voila–he’s the biggest phenom of 2012. “All I need is one mic” should now offer an addendum: All I need is two [big gold] chains.
