2 Chainz Sells a $90,000 Ugly Christmas Sweater
2 Chainz once rapped, "If it weren't for rapping I'd be trapping," but based on his latest endeavor, maybe he'd be work for a non-profit. The Hibachi For Lunch artist recently teamed with his jeweler to put together the world's most expensive ugly Christmas sweater, which Mr. Chainz ended up selling for $90,000. The proceeds are all set to go to charity.
Predictably, the sweater came with much more than classical ugly sweater designs. According to 2 Chainz's merch website, the article of clothing appropriately dubbed the "WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVEST UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER" includes 50 carats of diamonds and 250 grams of gold. Now we can see why it ended up costing so damn much.
This charitable act is a good way for the rapper formerly known as Tity Boi to close out the year, but it isn't the only one. Earlier this week, the former Disturbing Tha Peace rapper announced the “T.R.U. to Atlanta” party, which will see him perform at the halftime of the Atlanta Hawks' home game against the Detroit Pistons on Dec. 30. He'll also perform upon the game's conclusion.
“I’m looking forward to hitting the floor to perform at the last Hawks game of 2016,” Chainz says in a press release. “I’ve been all around the world, but there’s no place like Atlanta and I can’t wait to feel the energy at Philips Arena.”
The Hawks will also be selling limited edition 2-Chainz shirts and a special "2-Chainz 2-Pack," a package that includes two tickets for the game and $10 worth of concession stand food. The package starts at $29.
