I first noticed 2 Chainz's style when he and Grimes showed up to this year's VMAS in the same ornate Versace pants (unintentionally). It was one of the cutest, most endearing red carpet moments in some time, and the gateway that led me into obsessing over his entire wardrobe-- a mélange of hip hop and luxe streetwear. Dude has so much swag, please see my picks below of notable performance, red carpet, and off duty get-ups featuring looks by Versace, Givenchy, CDG, En Noir, KTZ, Pyrex and kicks by Giuseppe Zanotti, Adidas, and Buscemi.

Style is clearly a state of mind and being for this guy. In September, 2 Chainz released a 26-page digital cookbook called "#Meal Time" with his sophomore album. In between recipes inspired by his tour bus meals are instructional tips to make mealtime right. While preparing terriyaki salmon, sautéed asparagus, and garlic mashed potatoes he suggests you to:

-Put on your Versace apron.
-Cook [salmon] for 3 to 4 minutes while blasting 'Hit It With Fork' at an ignorant level.
-Drape yourself in an Adidas sweatsuit, chainz n thangs.
-If wearing a four-finger ring, carefully place it on a side table before starting to cook.
-Serve [mashed potatoes] in a gold bowl and garnish with remaining parsley."

In love yet?
