Many fans of Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz might not realize that he is a very religious man at heart. Even though he might rap about such topics like hustling, loving strippers, and drinking or experimenting with various substances, he admitted during an interview with CBS Local that he does in fact pray every day and that his success wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for the blessings that God has given him.
His strong sense of religious practice stems from his legal name, Tauheed Epps. 2 Chainz explained the spiritual meaning behind his real name and how his persistent belief in God has helped elevate him to the level of success that he is able to enjoy presently.
"My name Tauheed means unity with God, one with Allah. It's a very powerful name for me it derived from a combination from my aunt who is from Ghana and my father who did a lot of reading in prison.
"A lot of time when I speak on things that happen for my success I say, It's God's plan. I pray a lot. When you pray a lot, you speak things into existence. When you believe as strong as I do, it changes your life. I'm not a preacher and not Tim Tebow, it's the truth. I'm a real n**** and I'm able to say it because I'm comfortable in my own skin. I don't follow people. I know I pray everyday and that's why I'm here. I just don't act like I did all this s*** on my own."
