Outside of rumors, Chainz recently discussed switching up his name from Tity Boi.
"I've been doing a lot of media runs up in New York lately promoting my CD T.R.U. Realigion and every single interview I do they like, 'What's up with the name change?' So this is the universal answer," 2 Chainz said in an interview, "I just came up with it yesterday over a big bowl of kush for breakfast. ... And so people ask me where the 2 Chainz came from; I tell them I always talk about jewelry and I always been saying 2 Chainz in a lot of my songs. But lately, like the last year or so, I've been saying it, introducing my records like '2 Chainz!' and kinda making it family friendly. However you wanna say it. ... I started noticing a change early in the year when I was going to the mall and young ladies would be yelling '2 Chainz' or whatever. So my answer is, when I did 'Duffle Bag Boyz' in '07, that was like my first [exposure]. Now this right here would be my second chance. You know like 2 Chainz, second chance. So I thought that that would have a little more substance." (Shade 45)
