Chainz Begins Tour From 'Trap' Wheelchair After Breaking his Leg

Chainz Begins Tour From 'Trap' Wheelchair After Breaking his Leg”

Let's be straight here: 2 Chainz is a real one for this.

Wednesday night marked the beginning of the Pretty Girls Like Trap Music Tour in Tucson, Arizona, but 2 Chainz had a weird surprise for his fans: he rolled onstage in a pink wheelchair. Think of it as the trap version of Dave Grohl's giant throne, which the Foo Fighters frontman used on tour after he broke a leg.

Following the opening date in Tucson, Arizona, 2 Chainz will head to the West Coast, Chicago, and NY, before concluding at the end of December. He also shared the story regarding why he was temporarily handicapped. He'd had surgery for a fractured leg just 10 days before.

In an Instagram post, 2 Chainz explains: He broke his leg 11 days ago, immediately went into surgery, and the doctor told him he'd probably have to cancel his tour.

"After all the morphine and pains meds wore off I called management and said somebody find me a 'pink wheelchair, '" he wrote. "Show was legend! If you look up resilient in the Webster dictionary it's gone be a picture of me rocking a fucking show in a pink wheelchair", he said.

Fans in Tuscon, Ariz. got a surprise Wednesday night (Aug. 9) when 2 Chainz kicked off his show at the Rialto Theatre a little unexpectedly-in a custom pink wheelchair. Although he couldn't walk, he was able to wheel around the stage a little bit to show each section some love.

The Pretty Girls Like Trap Music tour is set to run through September 30th and a spokesperson for 2 Chainz artist told Billboard that the artist is going to keep on doing his thing.
