Imagine a life where your job was to spend your day tasting the world’s most expensive foods? Sounds like you’d wake up to an alarm and realise you were dreaming, unless of course your name is 2 Chains - you’re a rapper - and your side chop is to give people the low down on “the world’s most expensivist shit”.
2 Chainz - real name Tauheed Epps - has an online show with GQ where he basically gets to roll up to places and take a bite, sip, dip or stroke of the world’s most expensive items.
Many of these tasks involve food - though one sees the rapper petting a dog that costs $100k - and they are as absurd as you would imagine.
He eats the world’s most expensive burger, drinks diamond infused vodka, eats a $1k ice cream sunday, pets a $40k giraffe and brushes his teeth with a $5k toothbrush - every item mentioned in the series comes with the (insert value + k) equation, but my god, what a job.
