College Park native and trap music aficionado, 2 Chainz, is putting the world on notice that he is more than trap beats and creative bars.
In collaboration with Memphis rapper and producer Juicy J, 2 Chainz invested $2 billion in a solar energy merger Summer of 2021. In addition to this investment in sustainability, the Grammy-nominated artist has a restaurant and tapas bar in Atlanta, GA. Plus, he has a nail salon, a cannabis line, and several other thriving businesses.
As if his hands were not packed with all of this, 2 Chainz posted that the time to level up has come via his Instagram page.
What's next? He wants to start his own venture capital fund.
“So this Instacart, most of y’all know about it. I invested in Instacart a while back. You know I’m a part of a few funds, VC funds, private equity stuff that I’m seriously thinking about starting my own fund where I can connect the dots be the bridge between people that don’t get these opportunities that I be getting, right?” the Atlanta- based rapper said.
A Man Of The People
Although it’s no longer posted on his page, fans went under the original post to suggest that they are interested in following 2 Chainz’s steps in investing.
Later in the day, he clarified his statements providing more details on his pending venture capital plans.
“What I was saying is, I may start a fund to be a part of something new that’s not out yet. And, it’s not for everybody, that’s why everybody doesn’t know about it. It’s like gambling. You have some money, and you have to be able to part with the money for a period of time,” he said.
He's Not New To This
What’s more, it is not uncommon for 2 Chainz to share his investment strategies to help others with their financial goals.
In 2020, he partnered with YouTube to create a five-part series entitled Money Maker Fund. The series was inspired by his hit single, “Money Maker” featuring Lil Wayne. In the series, he received business plans and pitches from current HBCU students and alumni, ultimately investing over $50,000 into what he deemed as the best ideas.
