2 Chainz uses his Atlanta restaurant Escobar to feed homeless populations while closed amid coronavirus pandemic.
The COVID-19 outbreak has forced closed restaurants due to social distancing and quarantine restraints. This includes the Atlanta eatery Escobar, owned by rapper 2 Chainz. Governor Brian Kemp made the executive decision to allow certain businesses in the state of Georgia to reopen, despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Although Mayor of Atlanta Keisha Lance Bottoms warned against it, many business owners were hoping to return to operations as usual. 2 Chainz was allegedly included in the bunch ready to get to work. According to TMZ, the rapper and his co-owner Snoop Dillard were prepared to open Escobar to the public.
Extra safety precautions were reported to be enacted including staff temperature checks, one-time-use paper menus, and masks. As the day came, however, the restauranteurs have had a change of mind. Instead of opening their dining room, 2 Chainz decided to feed those in need.
Men residing in a shelter, located close to the Escobar, were provided fresh-cooked meals on 2 Chainz behalf. Footage shared to his social media accounts shows the rapper, masked up, overseeing the traffic as men line up, six-feet apart before entering the restaurant.
Recently, 2 Chainz received favor in court. The rapper alongside Offset and YG faced a lawsuit over their collaboration “Proud” celebrating their mothers. The suit, claiming the song was stolen, was dropped.
