Wheel-chair bound 2 Chainz doesn’t let a broken leg disrupt his show in St. Louis

2 Chainz performed at The Pageant on Tuesday, August 29th, 2017. The show was sold out, and packed with super hyped fans ready to see 2 Chainz live. When I heard that 2 Chainz recently broke his leg, I was worried that the show was going to be cancelled. A broken leg will not slow 2 Chainz down! 2 Chainz rolled out on stage (literally—in a wheel chair), ready to give a stellar performance.

The show started off with the Memphis-based rapper Young Dolph. Young Dolph did an excellent job preparing the crowd for the main act. The crowd was filled with dedicated fans that sang along to “100 Shots” as well as the rest of his entire set. Young Dolph mostly left the rapping to his fans; his DJ cut the beat, pointed the mic towards the crowd, and the entire venue rapped along.

After Young Dolph’s set, 2 Chainz arrived on stage with style. He was rolled out on a custom built wheelchair, complete with pink wheels, and gold rims with the resemblance of two chain links on the wheels. Escorted by a seductive nurse, 2 Chainz dropped hit after hit as the crowd went wild. The backdrop was a replica pink trap house as seen on his latest album cover, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. The stage was packed with back up dancers, and singers named “The Trap Choir.” To say this performance was incredible is an understatement; 2 Chainz kept the vibe going the entire night, and he even cracked jokes in between songs.

2 Chainz has always been vocal about his upbringing. Growing up in one of the poorest areas of Atlanta, he was always surrounded by drugs and violence. Even though he has risen from this situation, he never turned his back on Atlanta. He has donated to veterans, disabled children, and local arts and education programs. His latest project has been turning his old “trap house” into a free HIV clinic to further help his community.

His career spanning set ranged from his early Tityboi days to features with Kanye West, and even some cover songs of various artist. Of course, Pretty Girls Like Trap music dominated the set. 2 Chainz continues to evolve his performance and this tour is not one to miss.
