2 Chainz has tried the most expensive weed strain on the planet, and needless to say, he’s not impressed.
The rapper, who gave the “veganic” weed a spin with actress Sarah Silverman, did it for the Friday (May 12) installment GQ online series, Most Expensivist Shit, in where the Atlanta native tries out various expensive items and ranks them for what they’re worth.
Pioneered by Kyle Kushman, “veganic” weed — a portmanteau of “vegan” and “organic” — runs for about $1000 an ounce (or $16,000 a pound). A single joint costs $37. Kushman also claimed that he didn’t leave his house for five years because he was so busy selling that “veganic” weed.
“What?!” 2 Chainz screamed. “Hell naw! A $1,000 for a zip? $1,000 for 28 grams? $1,000 for [an] ounce of weed veganic? Good God almighty. We got $16,000 for a pound. Man, get tha fuck!”
But if anybody can afford to drop 16 grand on a pound of weed, it’s 2 Chainz, who even has his son Halo working for a pretty penny.
In a clip from the latest episode of the Atlanta rapper’s podcast with his son, Me and Halo, the father and son duo assessed what it would take to be booked, with Halo making it clear that he’s just like his dad and plays no games when it comes to getting the bag.
“Somebody wanna book me, I’m talking at least like $50,000,” the seven-year-old said as his father’s face filled with surprise.
It was noted, however, that if you didn’t have a lot of money, he would take a lower rate, maybe even as low as $500.
2 Chainz shares three children — Heaven, Harmony, and Halo — with his wife Kesha Ward, whom he married in 2018.
He pulled out all the stops for their long-awaited ceremony including dolling out $300,000 to host the wedding at the Gianni Versace Mansion and renting a white tiger for the ceremony.
In another recent episode of the father and son podcast, the pair played a round of “Are You Smarter Than A 1st Grader” – and needless to say, 2 Chainz did not succeed.
“What temperature does water freeze?” Halo asked him.
“Water can freeze at – wait, let me think,” Chainz began. “Minus 20 degrees or something… Water? You get on my nerves bro. Minus 30 degrees?”
“Oh, you are so close!” Halo replied before telling his dad the correct answer of 32 degrees.
