2 Chainz wants to run for mayor of College Park

2 Chainz already proved he can debate during his recent spirited conversation with Nancy Grace about the legalization of pot.

Now the hip-hop star is thinking about politics – specifically, mayor of his hometown of College Park.

“I am looking forward to running at the end of this year or next year. [I’m] waiting to see if I meet all of the qualifications!” the “Mercy” rapper told the AJC Monday afternoon.

Word of 2 Chainz’s political ambitions initially surfaced in an interview with

“I’m supposed to be running for mayor in College Park. I got everybody wishing,” he told the site.

2 Chainz, legally known as Tauheed Epps, earned high marks as a student at Alabama State University, which he attended on a basketball scholarship.

But the 37-year-old also has a few arrests for narcotics possession on his resume. His quest for mayoral supremacy would pit him against Jack Longino, who has served as College Park’s mayor since 1996.

Earlier this month, 2 Chainz announced the creation of his own record label, The Real University (aka The Real U, aka T.R.U.), which he plans to use as a platform for rising talent."Top Five" New York Premiere
