Rapper 2 Chainz has announced plans to run for mayor of his home town, College Park, Georgia, at some point in the future.
Speaking with XXL magazine, 2 Chainz said certain things need to fall into place before he’ll consider a run.
“We’ll see where the future lies for me, but you know, everything I do gotta be organic,” 2 Chainz told the magazine. “I’m a musician, not a politician. 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.”
It would seem 2 Chainz does indeed possess some impressive qualifications: according to XXL, he graduated Alabama State University with a 4.0 GPA.
2 Chainz also faced off against HLN host Nancy Grace in a widely-viewed debate over medical marijuana, a debate that the rapper won by most accounts. Though Grace proposed a rematch, 2 Chainz told the magazine he’ll probably decline the offer.
“I moved on, man,” the rapper told XXL. “I don’t know what’s going on up there. I know I’ve been getting a lot of praise and everything. I definitely appreciate the love that came behind me.”
