NPR Music’s Tiny Desk series will celebrate Black History Month by featuring four weeks of Tiny Desk (home) concerts and playlists by Black artists spanning different genres each week. The lineup mixes new and established artists at Tiny Desk concert for the first time. This celebration highlights the beautiful collective of Black music in unique virtual performances.
Last week, the Atlanta legend: 2 Chainz was recently featured. Covered in ice and neon hues of lavender, and violet, the rapper is in his high-end nail studio: Pamper( yes, he owns it.) 2 Chainz is feeling himself throughout his five-song set.
The rapper exudes Black excellence while getting a champagne-soaked pedicure, rolling one, and spitting hits from his latest studio album, So Help Me God! 2 Chainz’s 20 minute special consisted of the singles “Southside Hov,””Vampire,” “Good Drank,” “I’m Different,” and “Grey Area.”
His confidence comes from the financial security after being denied opportunities. The rapper known for his expensive taste, proved his talent last year with his surprise album. The rap vet always comes with the bars and this tiny desk performance is no different.
2 Chainz’s 2020 Album
So Help Me God! featured numerous heavy weight hit-makers, that help create one of 2 Chainz’s better projects. From songs featuring Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Brent Faiyaz, and Lil Uzi Vert, 2 Chainz’s brought the big guns out for this project.
Looking Back, 2 Chainz’s 2020 campaign was a steady stream of what the legendary rapper is capable of. In November, he, Young Scooter, Rick Ross, and Zaytoven collaborated on the album Dope Boyz & Trap Godz. This was after his album and a Verzuz match against Rick Ross back in August.
Although, So Help Me God! did not perform well on charts, 2 Chainz’s consistent flow probably won’t go unnoticed for long. For now, it is unknown as to what the hit-maker is up to for 2021, but he seems to be living luxurious regardless.
