Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz‘s Cinderella story turns another page as the hip-hop artist formerly known as “Tity Boi” has landed a spot on an upcoming episode of CBS’s “2 Broke Girls.”
According to reports, Chainz will show off his acting chops on the comedy series next month.
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)
Details on the episode’s plot have already started to circulate online.
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.

Just last month, Chainz reacted to his Based On A T.R.U. Story getting nominated for “Rap Album of the Year.”
“This is a moment of shock mixed with gratefulness. 2012 has been an unbelievably blessed for me, my family and my team in so many ways,” he said in an email on Friday (December 7). “We’ve worked so hard to create music that the fans can appreciate. And it definitely paid off. I knew when I put the album out that it would be received well, but a Grammy Rap Album of the Year nomination far surpasses my dreams. To be in the same category with legends like Nas. Man, that’s a big honor. I’m Extremely Blessed.” (MTV)
Along with the Grammy shine, his LP reached gold status last week.
