Georgia rapper 2 Chainz recently released his great new album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. It features artists such as Migos, Nicki Minaj and Jhené Aiko. To promote the release of the record, he took over a house, painted it all pink and called it the trap house.
It was a great photo opportunity and drew a lot of visitors. 2 Chainz decided that he’d have an art gallery inside and a couple days ago he took it a step further. In collaboration with the Fulton County Board of Health, Test Atlanta, and Atlanta Aids, he held a pop-up HIV testing clinic. And it was free.
On top of this, 2 Chainz is doing more community service. This past Sunday saw the house converted into a church, where people could attend a service and pray. “We can’t listen to the music without really addressing the systemic issues and the systematic oppression that causes the trap to even exist and so that’s the reason we pulled together ‘Trap Church’ is to really to talk about the other side of the trap, to talk about how we as a community have a responsibility to come together and help our brothers and sisters who are facing these tough situations,” said Wortham to Fox 5.
