2 Chainz, Feb. 12, Revolution

Out of the underground, into the mainstream


At 6 feet 5 inches tall, Atlanta, Ga.-born Tauheed Epps is an imposing figure. His gruff voice and propensity for rapping about drugs, guns and luxury items make him all the more so. But Epps, better known as 2 Chainz (and formerly known as Tity Boi), has taken himself out of the underground and right into the mainstream: 2 Chainz performed at Park City Live during the 2014 Sundance Festival. PCL is a big deal, especially during the film festival, known for hosting acts like Dave Grohl and Ke$ha, so it should come as no surprise that 2 Chainz would take the stage for a well-received performance. According to, he even made a joke about not knowing how to snowboard. Maybe when he performs in Boise, someone here can take him up to Bogus Basin and teach him.
