2 Chainz considering another mayor run in Georgia

Rapper 2 Chainz is considering another run for mayor in his native College Park, Georgia after his 2015 bid fell flat.
The hitmaker, real name Tauheed Epps, didn’t meet the requirements needed to run for the top job two years ago, but now he insists he’s ready for public office.
And he told The Daily Show host Trevor Noah the first thing he would do as mayor would be to legalise marijuana.
“I think it’s a crime that’s not that severe, but… it can affect you for years to come,” he told Noah. “I would just do things in the community, start with things that I’m basically true to that I have my hand in.
“I would also deal with funding a lot of the county programmes, sports programmes, and things like that because I feel like a lot of kids don’t come outside anymore. A lot of them either play video games or are on their phones, so I would like to do things in the community to give them something to do 24 hours a day.”
