2 Chainz is ecstatic.
2 Chainz shared a happy video to his Instagram earlier today where he revealed that his aunt is getting out of prison. After nearly 30 years of incarceration, his aunt will be released in the next 90 days, and Chainz is ecstatic.
“I wanna share some news that was good to me,” he said. “I just wanna put it in the atmosphere how happy and blessed I am to have my auntie coming home in the next 90 days. I haven’t seen my auntie besides pictures since basically she went to prison in ‘88.”
In spite of the long time inside, Chainz says his aunt is still herself. “This will be damn near 30 years for her,” he said. “She still in good spirits, she still healthy.”
He added that the whole family was going to have to do something big for the return of his aunt. “It’s a celebration, man,” he said. “Auntie Punkin coming home and I’m happy as a motherf*cker.”
This post is not the first time that the Pretty Girls Like Trap Music rapper has proven himself to be all about his fam. He bought his mama a second house just for the hell of it earlier this year.
Given the timing, it seemed like 2 Chainz was inspired by a heartfelt message between Kendrick Lamar and his own mother where the two were talking about the success of Damn. The rapper reposted K-Dot’s text with a message saying it reminded him of how great his own mother is. Then, just days later, he shared a text, congratulating him for buying his mother a home, from his aunt.
“So I bought my moms a new house today for no reason , well it is a reason , she my momma !” he wrote in the caption. “I Bought her a house 2012 before I knew I was gone be one of the biggest artists out here …,,still!!! I love you mom you deserve it ! And my AUNT JUNE sends me this.”
“I am glad that u are blessed to take care of your mom, which she deserves. All the obstacles she and I have been through, God. So fit for us both to be blessed,” wrote Chainz’ aunt in the following text message. “I am very proud of u. Many more blessing for u. Continue to stay humble and watch what God will do.”

2 Chainz’s generosity extends beyond his own family. He supports people who are struggling in and around his hometown with his charitable organization T.R.U. Foundation. Last year, he paid a single mother/veteran’s rent for a year, replacing all of her furniture using the proceeds from a charity drive funded by his “Dabbin Santa” Christmas sweaters.
“Giving back for the holidays the right way,” he wrote under a video of people helping him with the project getting emotional. “I’m taking some of the proceeds from the dabbing Santa sweaters and giving back to the people in need.”
