ESPN loves 2 Chainz, and can you blame them? After appearing on First Take alongside Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith, America’s favorite sports network found footage of the rapper formerly known as Tity Boi from his high school days. If you follow 2 Chainz, you might have heard he was quite the basketball player out of North Clayton High School in College Park, Georgia. Here’s video of 2 Chainz (real name Tauheed Epps) playing against Banneker High School on Jan. 17, 1995.

Based on a T.R.U. Story, out now on iTunes.
