He’s taking the Hip Hop game by storm and it seems as though he is not willing to stop anytime soon. For the past few years rap music has been giving birth to a new generation of talents like Drizzy, Big Sean, Diggy Simmons and Maybach music group rapper Meek Mill. There have been those before, the fallen and now the risen and one artist who has stepped his game up is non-other than latest G.O.O.D music artist Tauheed Epps aka 2Chainz!

Since being signed under Kanye West’s G.O.O.D music label, 2Chainz has been making major waves throughout the music scene. Now for all those who didn’t know, 2Chainz (Tauheed Epps) has been in the game since 1997 as one-half of the southern duo “PLAYAZ Circle” (PLAYAZ being an acronym for “Preparing Legal Assets for Years from A to Z) and the other half of the duo being his high school friend Earl Conyers (aka Dolla Boy).

The duo was previously signed to Ludacris’ record label Disturbing tha Peace as a result of Ludacris having an interest in PLAYAZ Circle when he used to record several tracks with the group and even came to a point whereby he played their records on his radio station.

Fast forward to today and one can respect 2Chainz’ ability to adapt to any beat. Working with likes of Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, Akon, Travis Porter, Kanye West, Trey songz and even Justin Bieber just proves his experience as a musician.

2Chainz’ first mixtape T.R.U Religion was his first album to appear on the music chart at number 58 on the US Billboard and this year, in August 2012, it’s said that he will release his first studio album titled Based on a T.R.U Story and after hearing out his “NO LIE” single (featuring Drake), this album could be an award achiever.

Reigning all the way from College Park Georgia, previously nicknamed Tity Boi (G.O.O.D change), 2Chainz is proving that persistence can become a game changer.
