2 Chainz brings trap music to CLT
Out on a major U.S. tour 2 Chainz is coming to a city new you! Here in NC we get two dates back to back as he makes a stop in Charlotte at The Fillmore Charlotte September 12 and in Raleigh at the Ritz on September 13. Currently in support of his latest album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, 2 Chainz has remained consistent in album and mixtape releases virtually every year for the last ten. Through this tenure 2 Chainz has managed to accomplish something many have failed to achieve as he has crafted an image that has evolved beyond trap music. With appearances on Saturday Night Live to battling Nancy Grace on marijuana legalization, 2 Chainz has worked to make himself a household name beyond just his music.

So yes, 2 Chainz is a bit of a renaissance man with a strong love of family and community, but right now he is out sharing his music and that is what we will have a chance to participate in. Sure, we can likely count on hearing hits like “Birthday Song” and “I’m Different” but he is out touring for his newest album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.
This album has received high praise and has really been a showcase for his lyricism, and shown just how well the man can work outside the bounds of the traditional “trap music” production sound. The album itself continues with many of his previous themes found in today’s rap music but also takes many moments to reveal personal insight. 2 Chainz throughout his career has seemingly been very honest but none more so than on this latest album. This is part of what people have come to love. Not just a musician performing but a person that is sharing pieces of himself with his audience as he has done for his community. Will it be fun? Yes! Will it be authentic? Yes! 2 Chainz has proven himself over the years to showcase his confidence through his performance in the same manner that we hear in his music. So whether you are a fan of the man himself or of his music catch him on one of his stops here in North Carolina and you will likely leave a fan of both.
