2 Chainz wants a president who is different, so he campaigned for the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris ticket with a special performance in his home state.
On Monday (Nov. 2), former President Barack Obama stumped for his onetime VP in Georgia. Chainz’s home state has long battled with voter suppression, especially within its Black population, so the 43-year-old rapper took the stage to encourage his fellow Georgia citizens to vote for the Democratic ticket.
“I think this next administration that I support, which is Biden Harris, they offer something different,” he announced amid roaring applause. “I speak on being different, I speak on embracing being different. And without further ado, I’m different.”
With the opening piano sequence playing in the background, he slyly began performing his 2012 hit “I’m Different,” which peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Atlanta artist also crossed off a major bucket-list item at the rally: meeting Obama.
“Mannnnnnnnnnn some of yal know how jelly I been over the years not meeting Obama , but that is now history and something to scratch off my bucket list,” he captioned his Instagram series of pictures with the former commander in chief and 2 Chainz’s family.
