#TBT: When 2 Chainz Was Tity Boi
Drake Brought Out Steph Curry And Draymond Green For Too Short Performance At Oracle Arena
Night 2 at Oracle Arena featured more guest appearances.
Revisit some great tracks from 2 Chainz's Playaz Circle days.
In 1997, a 20-year-old 2 Chainz, then known as Tity Boi, formed a rap duo Playaz Circle with his friend Dolla Boy. They released their debut album United We Stand, United We Fall, which is now virtually unavailable online. (You can buy the physical copy for $299.99 (plus shipping)).
Due to a variety of snafus, they wouldn't release their debut album for another ten years. Eventually they dropped two studio albums, and Tity dropped a slew of solo mixtapes before switching to the more family-friendly nom de guerre 2 Chainz and signing a solo deal in 2012.
Playaz Circle discography is no longer available online due to copyright claim on the duo's logo (hence the absence of "Big Dawg"). But judging from Isaiah Rashad's excellent new song "Tity & Dolla," they still hold a special place in the heart of the southern rap canon.
