What is 2 Chainz’s net worth? 2 Chainz’s net worth is $500 thousand dollars. 2 Chainz, also known as Tity Boi and Tauheed Epps, was born in College Park, Georgia. 2 Chainz first began to garner attention while in college at Alabama State University, as one half of Playaz Circle. He and best friend, Dolla Boy, also known as Earl Conyers, self-released their debut album, “United We Stand, United We Fall”, in 1997. The album caught the attention of Ludacris, who signed them to his Disturbing tha Peace label, and the future seemed bright. Unfortunately, 2 Chainz was shot, and Dolla Boy was put in jail, so their career aspirations were necessarily put on hold. After his recovery, 2 Chainz launched a solo career, and was later signed with Def Jam. He has appeared as a guest artist on a number of tracks with such artists as Ludacris, Gucci Mane, Trey Songz, Bow Wow, Diddy, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West. His solo debut is scheduled for release in August of 2012.Tauheed Epps (born September 12, 1976), better known by his stage name 2 Chainz, formerly known as Tity Boi, is an American rapper from College Park, Georgia. He was previously signed to Ludacris’ record label Disturbing tha Peace with Dolla Boy as Playaz Circle.
2 Chainz was born Tauheed Epps on September 12, 1976. He was originally known under the name “Tity Boi”, a name given to him by his mother, as Epps was an only child and thus the only one his mother would breastfeed. Further research and investigation showed that he had one brother named Dimatri who was 9 months younger than him and adopted by a couple in Birmingham, Alabama. His brother has one daughter named Sakia and one son named Dimatri Jr. nicknamed, DJ. His niece, Sakia is 13 (2011) and his nephew, DJ is 2 (2011). His niece is very proud of her uncle and talks to him a lot on the phone. She also loves to visit him on her breaks.
Epps formed the hip hop duo Playaz Circle (the word “Playaz” being an acronym of Preparing Legal Assets for Years from A to Z) in College Park, Georgia in 1997 with his high school friend Earl Conyers, who became known under his recording name Dolla Boy. Following the release on an independent album titled United We Stand, United We Fall, the duo were introduced to fellow rapper Ludacris when he moved into their College Park apartment complex whilst he was acting as a disc jockey: after he took an interest in Playaz Circle, he began to record several songs with the group, playing some of them on his radio station.
However, Playaz Circle’s career stalled once Epps was shot and Dolla Boy was incarcerated. Meanwhile, Ludacris had become one of the highest-selling rappers in the south of the United States: after hearing of the duo’s situation, he requested to Epps that the duo join his newly-formed record label Disturbing tha Peace, a subsidiary of Def Jam Recordings: Epps agreed, although Dolla Boy did not officially join the label until his release from prison.
