2 Chainz Tricked Out Wheelchair Saves Concert Tour

2 Chainz

After pushing back the start date to his tour, rapper 2 Chainz revealed at the first show last Wednesday night (Aug. 9) that he had broken his leg 11 days ago and needed surgery to fix it. The doctors told him he might have to cancel his entire “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” tour  … but Chainz wasn’t having it.

So the rapper’s producer hit up Sean Mahaney of Seanco Custom Wheelchairs. Sean tells TMZ his team got a tricked out 2-wheeler in less than a week…in time for the tour’s show in Tuscon.

That’s right…2 Chainz rocked the Rialto Theatre in Tucson while sitting in a pink wheelchair.

The pink wheelchair is propelled by 26-inch bright-pink wheels, pastel-pink body with 144 gold spokes, chain-link detail that harnesses the wheels … plus the rapper’s “TRAP” logo. Sean’s no stranger t

o tricking out wheelchairs. He hooked up Slim Jimmy for last year’s BET Awards, which is how 2 Chainz’s crew heard about Sean.

No one’s talkin’ price, but we’re told the chair set Chainz back around $10k. The cushion alone runs a G.

“When I woke up from sedation the doctor told me ‘well looks like your gonna have to cancel your tour ‘ so I told him maybe it means God wants me to use my mind and be creative,” he posted on Instagram.

Although 2 Chainz had pushed back the start date of his tour due to an injury, fans were unaware of what it was. He told concert attendees that he had broken his leg at his daughter’s birthday party.

“I can’t let my fans down besides I’m passionate about this,” he posted on Twitter. “Tucson, Arizona thank you for supporting me and rocking with the campaign!! Show was legend!!”

He added: “Remember never let anyone or anything get in the way of you being great! If I can do it you can too.”

A woman wheeled him around stage as he rapped, and he let some fans pose in another wheelchair next to him.

The color is on theme with his “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” album and tour.

Looks like he went from “coupe the color of mayonnaise” to “chair the color of Pepto Bismol.”

2 Chainz will perform the majority of his tour in the chair including when his tour “rolls” into The Ritz in Raleigh on Sept. 13. For more info, click here
