In an effort to promote ColleGrove, his new collaborative project with Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz stopped by The Wendy Williams Show to discuss his new album, the T.R.U. Foundation, and his infamous dabbin’ Christmas sweaters.

As the interview came to an end, Wendy revealed she thought he was going to cancel their interview due to the untimely and senseless death of Street Exec artist Bankroll Fresh. The rising Atlanta rapper was gunned down outside the studio late Friday night in ATL.

“He was an authentic rapper, trap rapper from Atlanta. He touched many of lives, light up every room he went to,” 2 Chainz said. “It was super unfortunate, super unnecessary, super senseless, and it just made me want to step up and use my platform for more positivity and everything else.”
