Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz came through with flying colors on last night’s “2 Broke Girls” television show, weeks after building up anticipation for fans to witness his acting skills.
In the episode, Chainz shares a private jet with the show’s two main characters as a slew of hijinks start to unfold.
After hooking up with a big-time music personality, Max got a hook-up of two tickets to the Grammys and a free trip on a private jet. Ironically, the jet they wound up on happened to be the one Caroline used to own. It even still had the same pilot. It also happened to pick up one more passenger in the form of 2 Chainz himself. He and Caroline hit it off pretty well — after she freaked him out by posing with her butt next to his face while he was sleeping. He didn’t seem put off by her rap skills at all, joining her in an impromptu take on that “Birthday Song” single. Unfortunately, a mechanical problem separated the girls from 2 Chains, who caught another flight to the Grammys. They had to settle for a cheap motel in the Midwest and their memories of flying high.

Last week, Chainz teased fans about what they could expect to see from him.
“It was real hard, but I knew I could pull it off,” Deuce told “TWIJ.” “Being 2 Chainz is a real hard task so what I had to do was wear 2 Chainz.” The show’s stars had only good things to say about the rapper’s dive into acting. “He went really method,” said Beth Behrs, who plays former rich girl Caroline on the show. “He’s really funny. You got a gift for comedy. You’re a good actor.” The “Birthday Song” spitter is used to rap compliments but looked to his new acting buddies for reassurance. “You just telling me that? You pulling my chain,” he asked Behrs. “Would we pull your chains, 2 Chainz?” Kat Dennings, who plays Max, answered jokingly. (MTV)
Reports of the rapper’s jump to television bubbled online around mid-January.
The night after the Grammy Awards on CBS, 2 Broke Girls is going to have a musical moment of their own, with a guest appearance from rapper 2 Chainz. EW has learned that the rapper, who is up for three Grammys, will appear on the Feb. 11 episode of 2 Broke Girls, playing himself. 2 Broke Girls airs Mondays on CBS. (Entertainment Weekly)
Plot details of what would take place also sprouted online before the episode’s airing.
During the episode, Max (Kat Dennings) meets a guy who works for a record label who becomes so smitten with her that he offers to fly her — and Caroline (Beth Behrs) — to Los Angeles for the Grammys on a private plane. The episode also includes a Bucket List item for Max as she’ll celebrate her first time on a plane when her dream gets even better when the one passenger left waiting to board is rapper 2 Chainz.
