Trappy is 2 Chainz’ French bulldog that he got in early 2015. He has appeared in many episodes of Viceland‘s show hosted by 2 Chainz called Most Expensivest and in two of 2 Chainz’ music videos, “Not Invited” and “Grey Area”. Trappy works out, eats well, flies first class and spends lots of time in the studio, like his human. He’s also into breeding, with people putting $10,000 just for a deposit on one of his puppies.
Chihuahua, Pitbull and another French Bulldog
Trappy is 2 Chainz main dog, but he does have another frenchie that is looked after by his kids. He says Trappy is more like him and his other frenchie shares his personality with his kids. He also has a chihuahua that pops up occasionally on his Instagram. He has said he owns a pitbull but hasn’t shared any more info.
Tauheed Epps is better known as 2 Chainz and previously known as Tity Boi. He is a known dog lover, having several of his own. His favourite dog, Trappy, is a French Bulldog that cost a whopping $100,000. He is famous for his music career as a hip hop artist and had a several year stint as a host for the television series onViceland calledMost Expensivest.
2 Chainz started his music career as part of the hip hop duo Playaz Circle in 1997. After releasing an independent album in 2002 they were introduced to Ludacris. They recorded several songs together with Ludacris and they signed with his label. They released their debut album Supply & Demand in 2007 and in 2010 filmed the music video “Big Dawg” with Lil Wayne and Birdman.
In 2011, 2 Chainz released the mixtape T.R.U. REALigion, which saw the start of his mainstream success. In 2012, he signed to Kanye West’s label GOOD MUSIC. He has since collaborated with recording artists such as Drake, Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Pusha T, T-Pain, Pharrell Williams and more.
Trappy’s Rise to Fame
Trappy’s story began while 2 Chainz was hosting a television series on Viceland calledMost Expensivest where he uncovers all of the extravagant ways the 1% enjoys spending money (and yes, it’s just as crazy as it sounds). In one episode, 2 Chainz meets with some ultra expensive dog breeders and is introduced to an incredibly expensive French Bulldog namedMicro Machine. After bonding hard with the Frenchie, 2 Chainz made a deal with the breeders to have Micro Machine father a Frenchie of his very own.
Trappy is heavily featured alongside 2 Chainz throughout Most Expensivest. “Doggy Style” (S01 E03) is arguably the episode that sparked nationwide attention on the petite beige Frenchie when he fell asleep mid-interview on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. There’s also an extended episode solely documenting a day of luxury that 2 Chainz provides for Trappy. The episodes features Trappy’s visit to an upscale pet hotel where he gets his own suite (obviously) and spends the day at a doggy spa.
Just how much is too much for your pet’s birthday cake? Apparently the sky is the limit for 2 Chainz’ pet pooch.In an episode that features Cake Boss, 2 Chainz wants to treat Trappy to a professionally made doggy cake for his third birthday. Extravagant ideas flow between the Cake Boss and 2 Chainz with mentions of “the best meats, Louis the XIII, high flyin’, Mercedes driving”. The final result? An uncomfortably realistic bone-in ribeye cake that sets 2 Chainz back a staggering $12,000 (the friend price, since it would originally be $15,000 for any other average Joe).
Music Video Pooch
Trappy can be seen featured in a couple of his father’s music videos. In 2016 the pooch made his music video debut in 2 Chainz’ “Not Invited” where he explores an Atlanta mansion party. Trappy thoroughly enjoys the night, taking a ride on a hoverboard and even having a lady dog to hang out with.
In 2021, Trappy appears in another of 2 Chainz’ music videos, this time taking things a step further by swapping bodies with his owner. “Grey Area” starts with the two pals hanging out on the couch when things take a turn after they consume a special psychedelic smoothie prepared by 2 Chainz.
Trappy’s life has been nothing short of a wild ride. When he’s not traveling first class around the world alongside his dad, he’s living a lavish and comfortable life in Atlanta where he eats well and spends lots of time in the studio. At just a few years old, Trappy’s pet worth already exceeds $500,000.
