Family

Parents

Chainz had a challenging upbringing. His mother essentially raised him alone because his father had been in and out of prison frequently while he was a child. If there is one rapper who never misses an occasion to express their love and gratitude for their parents, it would have to be 2 Chainz. The MC has always been quite honest about being raised by his mother. The rapper revealed that despite his father coming and going from his life, they were able to mend and improve their relationship over time.

House

A 22-acre foreclosed property near Palmetto, Georgia, was purchased by 2 Chainz for $517,000 in September 2011. Then he developed an impressive compound retreat on the land. In 2016, 2 Chainz paid $2.5 million for a property in LA’s Beachwood Canyon neighborhood. In March 2022, 2 Chainz spent $3.8 million for a property in the Hollywood Hills.

Restaurant

Escobar, a tapas bar in Atlanta that first welcomed customers in 2016, is 2 Chainz’s project and evidence of his sophisticated taste. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that DePhon R. Robinson, a former celebrity personal chef who has worked for people including Queen Latifah, Olympic runner Carl Lewis, and Gabriel Union, was hired by 2 Chainz.

Crab cakes, collard greens, lobster tail, and hot chicken sliders are just a few of the typical soul cuisine dishes that are mixed in with the tapas on the menu. In Atlanta’s Castlberry Hill area, Escobar is currently open. But over the years, other branches have popped up in different cities, turning it into a franchise.

Chainz and his business partner Michael “Snoop” Dillard launched the venture. However, the restaurant was once known as Escobar before the family of the late Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar sued it, leading to the name change, “Esco Restaurant & Tapas.”
