Rapper and eloquent weed advocate 2 Chainz may be running for mayor of his hometown of College Park, Georgia in the not too distant future.
The rapper formerly known as Tity Boi told XXL Magazine, “I’m supposed to be running for mayor in College Park. 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.”
Yesterday he confirmed to the Atlanta Journal Constitution that he plans on running “At the end of this year or next year.”
Earlier this year, 2 Chainz brilliantly shut down Nancy Grace in a debate over marijuana legalization, proving he is logical, liberal and a super chill dude. The rapper graduated from Alabama State with a 4.0 GPA (he got in on a basketball scholarship – is there anything 2 Chainz can’t do?). Evidence suggests he may make a fine mayor.
Still, is College Park ready to embrace a fellow whose song titles include “I Luv Dem Strippers” and “Rich As Fuck”?
Jack Longino, the current mayor of College Park and 2 Chainz potential future nemesis doesn’t seem particularly fazed by the news. “I didn’t know who he was, but I’m not a big rapper. I’m a country-western guy. I don’t listen to rap,” he told the Daily Beast. Not a rapper?! Damn, we were hoping Longino was gonna drop a hot retaliation album.
In the meantime, let’s all move to College Park so come voting time we can make this dream come true.
