2 Chainz and his friend Earl “Dolla Boy” Conyers joined together as the group Playaz Circle in 1997. Playaz stood for “Preparing Legal Assets for Years from A to Z”. While in this band, 2 Chainz used the name “Tity Boi”. In 2002, after a few years, they independently released an album called United We Stand, United We Fall.

The future rap star Ludacris, who was at the time a disc jockey, was so impressed with their music that he befriended 2 Chainz and Dolla Boy. Soon later, they were recording music together, and Ludacris was also playing their music on his radio shows.

Once Ludacris had struck genuine fame, he brought 2 Chainz and Dolla Boy along with him. He signed them up to his new label, Disturbing Tha Peace with Def Jam Recordings, and by 2007 they’d dropped Supply & Demand, their first studio album.

“Duffle Bag Boy”, their first single, became a bit of a hit, partially due to its appearance by Lil Wayne. It took off even further when Playaz Circle performed the song at Black Entertainment Television’s Hip Hop Awards show.

Two years later, they released Flight 360: The Takeoff, their next album, but it was only right after that that 2 Chainz decided to strike off on his own. This is when he officially changed his name to 2 Chainz from Tity Boy in order to project a more family-friendly image. He launched his new identity with a mixtape, T.R.U. REALigion.

In 2012, 2 Chainz released his first solo album, called Based on a T.R.U. Story. It featured singles such as “No Lie”. The album started off in the top spot on Billboard 200 in the United States, despite mixed reviews. During its first week on the shelves, it sold one hundred forty-seven thousand units.

This success led 2 Chainz to a nearly sold-out worldwide tour, thirteen Black Entertainment Television Hip Hop award nominations, four of the awards, a Man of the Year award from The Source Magazine, and three Grammy nominations, one of which was for Best Rap Album.

2 Chainz also got endorsement deals with Beats By Dre and ADIDAS sneakers thanks to all of this success. Naturally, all of this contributed hugely to the growth of 2 Chainz net worth.

In September 2013, 2 Chainz dropped his second album, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time, after making guest appearances on the blockbuster NBC show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and the FOX sitcom 2 Broke Girls. The singles for the album included “Feds Watching”, “Used 2”, “Where U Been?”, and “Netflix”.

Unlike his first album, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time actually brought 2 Chainz excellent reviews, although it didn’t do quite as well as his first in sales. With that said, it did very well. It hit third place on the Billboard 200 and second on the Top R&B Hip Hop charts.

In May 2014, 2 Chainz dropped a free digital EP called FreeBase, as well as a single, “I’m a Dog”. 2016 saw the release of yet another digital EP called Felt Like Cappin’, which featured a single called “Back On That Bullshit”, and then an album collaboration with Lil Wayne called ColleGrove.

Due to various legal issues with labels, they weren’t able to release it as a joint album, so instead, it officially came out as a 2 Chainz album that just so happened to include Lil Wayne on 8 of the songs. This album was extremely well-reviewed by the media industry.

That same year, 2 Chainz put out a mixtape called Daniel Son: Necklace Don, as well as one called Hibachi for Lunch. And the next year, 2 Chainz put out his fourth official full album. This one was Pretty Girls Like Trap Music and featured songs such as “Big Amount”, “Good Drank”, “4 AM”, and “It’s a Vibe”.

Pretty Girls Like Trap Music got 2 Chainz’s best reviews of his career. It was partially thanks to appearances by people such as Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams, and Travis Scott.

In 2017, 2 Chainz started to host a TV show for the Viceland channel. It was called Most Expensivest and featured 2 Chainz traveling to various places to show off luxury goods and lifestyles. The show last three seasons and ran until he start of 2019.

That same year, 2 Chainz released his fourth album, Rap or Go to the League, and in the next year, 2020, 2 Chainz dropped a sequel to ColleGrove, namely ColleGrove 2. Later that year, he put out his next full album, So Help Me God!, whose debut single was “Quarantine Thick”, in reference to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.
