Watch 2 Chainz Ride a Segway and Experience Pure, Unbridled Joy
By Scott T. Sterling
There are all kinds of perks that come with music stardom. Money, affluence, close proximity to the finer things in life — it’s a tough grind, but the rewards can often make all of the sacrifice worthwhile.
For rapper 2 Chainz, major-league success came later than expected, hitting the big time after updating his moniker from “Tity Boi” in 2011, going on to blow up thanks to a slew of mixtapes, high-profile cameos and a Kanye West co-sign that led to his debut solo album, 2012’s Based on a T.R.U. Story, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Being a big-time hip-hop star like 2 Chainz also comes with smaller but just as significant extras, like the pure joy that comes from riding a Segway around a luxury hotel room.
The rapper posted this video of himself doing just that on his Instagram page, and it’s one of the happiest things you’ll watch all day. He navigates the furniture like a pro.
2 Chainz recently helped Def Jam celebrate the label’s 30th anniversary during a star-packed show at this year’s troubled SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, although his set was unceremoniously cut short due to the late hour, causing him to walk off stage twice.
