2 Chainz’s Style? It’s More Like 7 Chains


“I sleep in like three or four chains,” the rapper 2 Chainz says. “I get up and add two to three more.”

The rapper 2 Chainz (born Tauheed Epps) loves jewelry so much that he usually wears more than two chains at a time, even when he sleeps. This month and next, he’ll be traveling the country on his “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” tour. He also hosts a GQ video series focused on his love for luxury goods.

Jewelry, Etc. I sleep in, like, three to four chains. I get up and add two to three more. I sleep with watches and bracelets on. My favorite piece is probably my diamond tennis chain with the cross on it. I sleep in this one. I got it from Avianne Jewelers; it’s at 28 West 47th Street. That’s where I’ve been getting my jewelry from for the last 14 years. Avianne is well known in the hip-hop community. If not jewelry, then I have my messenger bags. I’m carrying this one by Goyard, which is one of my most recent ones. I have about 20 or 30 of them. I started wearing them ever since my song “Duffle Bag Boy.” That was 2007.

Shirt I wear button-downs on occasion to show off my recent gym activities, but for the most part I wear T-shirts. I wear Polo tees all the time. I run through those every week — either all black or all white. They’re very subtle, very plain. I also wear the Polo tank tops as well. Those are my go-tos, whether I’m kicking it on a laid-back day or if I want a T-shirt to complement my jewelry.

Pants Recently I’ve been wearing a lot of Gucci jogging pants, but I’m usually in jeans. I wear Amiri jeans or En Noir jeans. They fit me. I’m 6-foot-5. I have to find a jean to complement my height, and they seem to do that. I like them fitted but not too tight. Jeans are an expression of your mood or how you feel. I have a lot of moods and a lot of different jeans that I go to.

Suit I like the way my Margiela suits fit. I also like the way my Grammy suit fits. I met the guy who makes the most expensive suits in New York for my GQ show — David Lance. He was making me this suit literally for three years. He is someone that really believes in getting every detail to the tee. It was crazy. I was frustrated. But it was worth the wait. It’s in a dark blue. I can wear it again. It’s very mature. But I’m old enough for it.

Shoes It’s too tough to pick my favorite. I have thousands of pairs of shoes. But these ones I’m wearing are dope — completely red Louboutins. They’re so fresh. And fashion is about being confident. It’s about taking chances.
