2 Chainz was in Miami on Saturday morning (December 9) when he was involved in a serious car accident. According to TMZ, the Welcome 2 Collegrove rapper was driving down I-95 when he attempted to take an exit. At that point, a Tesla slammed into his vehicle, causing a significant crash. Police believe the driver of the other car was possibly under the influence and simply lost control.
2 Chainz was rushed to the hospital by ambulance with, at the very least, neck injuries. He’s reported to be in stable condition. 2 Chainz posted an Instagram video of himself being wheeled into the back of the ambulance shortly after the incident, a good indication his injuries weren’t too severe. The Georgia native was in town for Miami Art Basel and had been partying at a local strip club called B#### Trap.
2 Chainz and Lil Wayne just unleashed their joint album, Welcome 2 Collegrove, last month. The project follows the 2016’s ColleGrove, which was solely credited to 2 Chainz due to Lil Wayne’s issues with his label, although hes featured prominently throughout the album. The word “Collegrove” is a portmanteau of 2 Chainz’s hometown, College Park, Georgia, and Lil Wayne’s hometown, Hollygrove, Louisiana. The 21-track project run roughly 60 minutes and includes guest appearances by 21 Savage, Usher, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Benny the Butcher, Marsha Ambrosius and Vory.
2 Chainz opened up about the anxiety he felt making the album alongside Lil Wayne during a recent interview with Apple Music. He said, “I think me and him just have that chemistry. We enjoy working with each other a lot, and it’s a lot of respect there. And as I always say, steel sharpens steel. So, it’s always that little piece of anxiety of knowing that this verse has to be better than the last one. I think it’s healthy. I think competition is healthy in any and everything that we do.”
