'I can't let my fans down besides I'm passionate about this s--t!!" he wrote on Instagram.

2 Chainz has clearly learned some lessons from Dave Grohl. Just like the Foo Fighters leader, the "Door Swangin'" rapper is not about to let a bum leg stop him from touring. While Chainz managed to keep it a secret that he broke his leg -- and had surgery on it -- nearly two weeks ago, on Wednesday night (Aug. 9) the MC kicked off his tour in Tucson, Arizona at the Rialto Theatre from a custom pink wheelchair, determined to bring it to his fans despite his medical set-back.

The rapper explained the whole scenario in a lengthy Instagram post accompanied by a shot of him being wheeled out onto the stage by a provocatively dressed nurse in a chair with "Trap" scrawled across the back. "So I broke my leg 11 days ago , and had surgery 10 days ago .. when I woke up from sedation the doctor told me " well looks like your gonna have to cancel your tour " so I told him maybe it means God wants me to use my mind and be creative!" he wrote.

"So after all the morphine and pains meds wore off I called management and said somebody find me a " pink wheelchair " I can't let my fans down besides I'm passionate about this shit !! Tucson, Arizona thank you for supporting me and rocking with the campaign!!"
