Rapper 2 Chainz Guest Stars On CBS Show ‘2 Broke Girls’
Tauheed Epps, also known as Tity Boi, has had one of the biggest years in Hip-Hop already, only 2 months into 2013! After officially changing his moniker to 2 Chainz in 2011 to be more family friendly, he's practically become a household name in the industry. He's appeared on every major heavy weight rap artist's album, from Kanye West to Nicki Minaj, had 3 Grammy nominations, 4 BET Hip-Hop Awards (amongst 11 nominations), a Soul Train Award and his first solo album, 'Based on a T.R.U. Story', debuted on the US Billboard 200 at #1, selling 147,000 copies in it's first week. He may have to change his name to 4 Chainz soon.
With all of his recent success, he can add a guest starring role on the hit CBS sitcom, 2 Broke Girls to his resume now. Recent (minor) legal woes aside, life as the 35-year old rap star must be pretty good. He managed to still be funny, while playing himself on the show, without being too over the top. I guess it's pretty hard having to just be yourself. Having seen other rappers act and fail (LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Queen Latifah and DMX excluded), we may be seeing a lot more of him soon. Better get your 'big booty hoes' ready... No Lie. Pun intended.
