2 Chainz Seeking Mayoral Candidacy In Georgia City
Rapper, chef connoisseur and professional hair weave killer 2 Chainz has decided to run for mayor in his hometown of College Park, Georgia.
In a statement to Buzzfeed News, the “I’m Different” rapper shared:
“I’m supposed to be running for mayor in College Park. I got everybody wishing. I’m really gonna do this little mayor thing in College Park. I’m just trying to make sure I have the right qualifications.”
If 2 Chainz does qualify to run in the mayoral election, he would be competing against Jack P. Longino who is a third generation mayor of College Park. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Longino revealed he did not know who 2 Chainz was prior to the news of him running for mayoral office and he does not listen to rap music. He did note, 2 Chainz would actually have to live in College Park to run against him; currently the rapper lives in Palmetto, Georgia.
Despite being registered in another town, 2 Chainz fans have revved up their support on Twitter for his potential mayoral candidacy:

There is precedence to show that this isn’t as far fetched as it may seem. He had a 4.0 GPA and graduated from Alabama State University. He also debated on the topic of legalizing marijuana against HLN host Nancy Grace which went viral due to their candid commentary.
Would you vote for him?
