2 Chainz reveals his eventual goal of running for mayor of his hometown, College Park, Georgia.
By now, it's a well-known fact that 2 Chainz, despite whatever personality comes across in his music, is a very smart dude. He graduated Alabama State University with a 4.0 GPA, and just last week was seen schooling Nancy Grace in a debate on marijuana. Now, the rapper has revealed that he has political aspirations, namely a desire to be the mayor of his hometown.
Speaking to XXL, Tity 2 Necklace said, “I’m a musician, not a politician. I’m supposed to be running for mayor in College Park [a city near Atlanta]. 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.”
While this may seem pretty far-fetched at this point, Chainz sounds like he'll be patient with it, so he may be able to avoid a Wyclef Jean/President of Haiti situation. “We’ll see where the future lies for me," he said, "But you know, everything I do gotta be organic.”
