American rapper, Tauheed K. Epps, known professionally as 2 Chainz, recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, alongside Lil Wayne in promotion of their new single, “Presha,” and forthcoming album, Welcome 2 Collegrove.

During the show, 2 Chainz shared news of his latest business venture. The college basketball star turned Grammy-award-winning musician hasn’t been well-known for many side projects of his own since he dealt marijuana in high school. But he told Jimmy Fallon that he “felt like maybe [he] hadn’t crossed over the threshold of manhood” before September, when he celebrated his 46th birthday by purchasing himself two noteworthy gifts, according to People Magazine.

When asked by Fallon how he celebrated, the rapper replied, “I bought a lawn mower and a strip club.”

Explaining the lawn maintenance machine, 2 Chainz shared that he grew up in urban apartments, and acquired his first house once he had made it as a rapper.

That house has “a rather large yard,” he says, so he has historically hired people to maintain the property from him.

“So I pay people to do everything for me, like most rich people do. And then I woke up and I said, ‘You know what? I’ve never cut the grass before.’ And I felt like maybe I hadn’t crossed over the threshold of manhood. And so I woke up and I got me a John Deere.”

Regarding the casual strip club purchase, 2 Chainz says that it’s up and running.

“It’s called Candyland,” he shares. “It’s in Atlanta.”

He adds: “Make sure you check us out. Needless to say, it’s for adults.”

The level-up is reminiscent of 2 Chainz’ “Birthday Song,” (2012) feat. Kanye West:

All I want for my birthday is a big booty hoe (Yeah)

All I want for my birthday is a big booty hoe

It’s your birthday (Yeah)


I show up with a check to your work placeThen hand the valet the keys to the MercesTell the DJ play your song, this shit come onWhat I’m seeing from the back I can’t front onThey ask me what I do and who I do it forWhen I die, bury me inside the booty club
