Apparently 2 Chainz is considering trying his hand at a political career of sorts by running for mayor of his hometown of College Park, Georgia.
The topic first came up earlier this year in an interview with XXL Magazine.
“I’m supposed to be running for mayor in College Park,” 2 Chainz told the magazine. “I got everybody wishing. I’m really gonna do this little mayor thing in College Park. I’m just trying to make sure I have the right qualifications.”
Just earlier this week, the rapper reaffirmed his plans in an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, stating that he looks forward to running wither the end of this year or next year.
If he was to run, it would more than likely be against the current mayor, Jack Longino, who has been in office for almost 20 years now. Longino doesn’t seem to be overly concerned about his possible challenger.
“[If 2 Chainz] actually lives in College Park and wants to run and signs up, we’ll let the people decide,” Longino told the Daily Beast. “I didn’t know who he was, but I’m not a big rapper. I’m a country-western guy. I don’t listen to the rap.”
Despite the lack of a definite decision, 2 Chainz is already getting early support from people via twitter. Several fans have even claimed a change of address will be in order if 2 Chainz was to become mayor.
What do you think? Would 2 Chainz make a good mayor or should he just stick to what he knows? Sound off in the comments below!
