The reigning trap king gave out free meals to those in need from his own Escobar Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia.
2 Chainz originally planned on opening his restaurants up in April after all non-essential businesses were given permission by Governor Brian Kemp to reopen, despite the widespread coronavirus pandemic. Instead of reopening, however, the rapper decided to use his restaurant for a better cause: to feed the homeless. On April 27th, 2 Chainz partnered up with the TRU Foundation and HERImpact Foundation, along with friends and volunteers, to help hand out meals to the homeless. In compliance with social distancing guidelines, 2 Chainz and the volunteers donated hundreds of meals over the course of two hours to those who were stood in line. Volunteers then spread out through the city, giving meals to those in low-income communities. Today, both of 2 Chainz restaurant’s Escobar and Tapas locations are slowly making their way back to normal operations, currently operating a takeaway service only.
