2 Chainz has lavish taste, but recently, he's taken things to a whole different level.
With GQ, he's been trying the "Most Expensive Sh--" around -- including a burger with gold on it, a $2 million car and $30,000 headphones.
But what's the "Most Brokest Sh--" he's ever done? MTV News decided we had to ask -- and it turned out he had thought about that very question recently.
"I pulled out the whip and dropped the top, I'm just feeling myself," the rapper said during last week's Def Jam 30th anniversary concert in New York (this wasn't the broke part). "I go over to my homie's house -- his mom's house -- they don't even know I'm coming. So, I go in the crib, they're like, 'Oh, let me get my hair together! Let's take pictures.' The offered me dinner, I said yes."
They all ate together and enjoyed what sounded like a wonderful, hearty home-cooked meal. Which made them think back to when that wasn't always the case.
"They said, 'Yo, Tit, do you remember when you used to eat bread and Kool-Aid all the time?'" he continued. "It was one of them moments where I had to reflect on how I had the big glass of the sugar Kool-Aid, and I had the bread on top, and that would be my holder. And I'd take the bread off, dip it in the Kool-Aid, eat it. But it was almost because we wasn't eating like that.
"That made me remember really where I came from," he continued.
The days of dipping bread in Kool-Aid (it was red, by the way) are behind him thanks to his music, and albums like Based on a T.R.U. Story and B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time, and though he won't be continuing with the B.O.A.T.S. title theme, some new music is on the way.
"2 Chainz season [is] about to start," he assured.
