Rapper 2 Chainz arriving at the 2016 BET Awards held at The Microsoft Theater L.A Live. 2 Chainz was nominated in the Best Group category for his work with Lil Wayne. Los Angeles, California, United States - Sunday 26th June 2016
The rapper had barely begun his promising rap career.
Tragedy has struck the hip hop community once again as it's revealed that a 28-year-old rapper from Atlanta named Bankroll Fresh (aka Trentavious White) has been killed in a shoot-out outside of a recording studio. Police have no leads on the perpetrator thus far, or indeed their motives behind the murder.
Lil Wayne among those in remembrance of the late star
Bankroll Fresh (formerly known as Yung Fresh) was shot on Friday (March 4th 2016) outside Street Execs Studios in Northwest Atlanta, with the Fulton County Medical Examiner confirming that he later died from his gunshot wounds on arriving at Hughes Spalding hospital.

2 Chainz is running for office. Imagine that.
2 Chainz, the hip-hop artist born Tauheed Epps, has revealed that he is running for mayor in his hometown of College Park, Atlanta, Georgia. However, the rapper isn't one of the town's 14,000 inhabitants, which could prove problematic.
2 Chainz wants to run for mayor in College Park - but, err, he doesn't live in College Park
"I'm supposed to be running for mayor in College Park," he told XXL magazine. "I got everybody wishing. I'm really gonna do this little mayor thing in College Park. I'm just trying to make sure I have the right qualifications."

Sweetlife 2014 lives up to its name with amazing sets from Fitz & the Tantrums and Foster The People.
Sweetlife festival proved its worth with a fantastic day of quality music and incredible food at the weekend, with Foster The People and Fitz & The Tantrums among the clear highlights of the Maryland event.
We're tempted to jump on the pun bandwagon and talk about how 'sweet' Sweetlife festival was last weekend - but we'll try and avoid it. Though speaking of such, the food was an important feature of the whole day (May 10th 2014) with one memorable fact being Astro Doughnuts' batch of 2,000 of their famous sugary treat. Obviously, there were plenty of happy faces before the music even began.
With great food, a healthy atmosphere and a short but 'sweet' line-up, Sweetlife 2014 is not worth missing.
Billed as 'a music and food festival', Sweetlife 2014 is set to offer the best of both with their single day event this weekend (May 10th 2014) at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
With the grand setting of masses of surrounding forestland, Sweetlife has developed into a much-loved annual party since its inception in 2010 when it was simply a small event held outside the Sweetgreen food destination in Dupont, Washington DC. And yet, it has maintained its solid ethics of green living and healthy eating, enforcing this with offers of local produce and green set-ups such as solar powered stages, composting waste disposal and recycling units. To make it even better, all proceeds from the event go to a very worthy charitable cause!

The rapper was arrested at LAX for unlawfully carrying codeine.
2 Chainz has been charged with felony drug possession ten months after he was arrested at California's LAX airport for unlawfully carrying codeine, the main ingredient in the cough syrup-based mixture sizzurp, which is punishable by up to three years in prison, according to TMZ.
2 Chainz Has Been Charged With Felony Drug Possession.
The rapper was busted at LAX by TSA officials last June after the sizzurp ingredient was allegedly found in one of his bags at check-in. At the time of his arrest, it was reported that possession of marijuana and promethazine was the cause of his arrest, the latter another ingredient in sizzurp, but it is currently unclear whether or not more charges will be added to the codeine possession.

Served with an ample splodge of 'Me Time sauce' - like mayonnaise but more hip-hop.
2 Chainz has enticed his fans to fork out for the deluxe edition of his latest album, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time, not only with a few extra tracks but with a series of recipes designed to link up with each of the songs.
2 Chainz Reveals His Chef Side.
It's not even like the recipes are compensating for anything: the rapper's second album is still exceptionally produced and showcases the same rich ability for verse as his debut effort from the former Tity Boi, Based on a T.R.U. Story. The album welcomes collaboration from Black Eyed Peas' Fergie, Ma$e and a splash and dash Chrisette Michele and Sunni Patterson.
Queen Bey's performance was out of this world as she kicked off Made In America Festival with 2 Chainz and Phoenix.
Beyoncé has graced the stage of Made In America in Philadelphia to headline a second day of celebrations at the second annual festival. She was the Saturday headline act and performed for 90 minutes in an energetic set that left the 50,000 strong crowd in awe of the mother-of-one, blasting through hits such as 'Crazy In Love,' 'Halo,' and 'Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).'
No Human Can Look That Casual Whilst Jumping In Heels.
Striding out on to the MIA stage, Bey immediately put her mark on the festivities, branding the event as her own. "Philly, welcome to Made in America. You are now at the Mrs. Carter Show," she shouted, yelling "Show me how loud you can be" to the compliant and adoring crowd.

Despite what the title may imply, Drake's new track required assistance from rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean.
It's all rather hip hop and happening in the rap world right now as lyric-spitting titans can't wait to share new tracks with fans in 2013. We've had Kanye West's Yeezus, Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, Lil Wayne's I Am Not A Human Being II to name a minority but now we're sitting pretty waiting for Drake's upcoming September album and third studio effort, Nothing Was The Same.
Drake: Looking Forward To The Release Of Nothing Was The Same.
To keep us going until 17th September, Drake has dropped new single 'All Me' but, as you'll hear on the track, it wasn't all him. Drake called in buddies and fellow rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean to embellish his latest song with some stirring accompaniment.
Chicago's biggest music festival Lollapalooza to feature stunning headline acts, great activities and shelters for all weathers.
Since it's revival in 2003, Lollapalooza has been bringing you the very best of rock, metal, punk, hip hop and dance from all the major music legends to the up-and-coming rookies of the business. Taking place at Chicago's Grant Park from August 2nd - 4th 2013, the festival this year features a bedazzling headline roster of Las Vegas indie rockers The Killers, West Sussex goths The Cure, Grammy winning folk four-piece Mumford & Sons and long-running industrial rock group Nine Inch Nails. There will also be a huge range of activities to occupy yourself with over the weekend from the Samsung Galaxy Experience where you can check out the latest gadgets, to art stations where you can become a comic strip or be transformed into a work of pop art.
Due to hit the LA State Historic Park in a couple of weeks is the 2013 Hard Summer Music Festival featuring headline sets from several electro-house artists including Duck Sauce, Knife Party and Justice.
The festival first appeared in 2007 when Destructo (a DJ also known as Gary Richards) began promoting a series of live events that also included Hard New Year's Eve, Hard Haunted Mansion and Hard 13. This year it will take place on August 3rd and 4th and includes four stages including the Ed Bangor Records 10th Anniversary Stage and the Dirty Bird Players Stage.
Other headliners this year are Skrillex and Boys Noize side project Dog Blood, Californian DJ Bassnectar and Aussie duo Empire of the Sun. They will be joined by the no less exciting supporting acts of chart favourites 2 Chainz, Azealia Banks and Rudimental as well as SBTRKT, Flux Pavilion, Flying Lotus, Zedd, Crystal Castles and Baauer.
