2 Chainz Announces New Schedule and ShoesBy: Heather Vecchioni - February 18, 2014
Rapper 2 Chainz has been quite busy lately.
In celebration of the musician’s first headlining tour, “2 Good to be T.R.U.,” 2 Chainz partnered with shoe and apparel distributor Adidas to develop a commemorative edition of the Top Ten Hi.
The stylish kicks are crafted with croc-embossed brushed nubuck, full-grain leather, and gold detailing on the shoelace tips and eyestay. And of course, they wouldn’t be Adidas without those signature three stripes, which are molded to look like snakeskin.
The shoes were available in stores beginning Saturday, February 15. If you’re interested in purchasing a pair, expect to pay about $130.
Along with talented musician, 2 Chainz can also add “marketer” to his resume, as he was seen rocking his shoes at the 2014 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. Sitting alongside Diddy, Drake, and Kevin Hart, the rapper made sure the crowd and audience saw his footwear.
In addition to designing shoes and attending games, the rapper has also been busy announcing his summer concert schedule. He will team up with Lana Del Rey and Foster the People for the Sweetlife Festival. The outdoor music concert will be held on May 10 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md.
Other acts scheduled to appear include Fitz and the Tantrums, Bastille, Capital Cities, St. Lucia, and Nicky Blitz.

Later in the summer, 2 Chainz also plans to appear at Wireless, an urban music festival held in London at Finsbury and Perry parks in Birmingham. Held from July 4 to 6, the festival will also feature J. Cole and Knife Party, Foxes, Vic Mensa, Joel Compass, and Sage the Gemini.
