2 Chainz surprised Georgia resident Dierdre Plater by announcing he would pay her rent for the entire year.
“I love to see stuff like this happen for other people, but I never thought it would happen to me,” Plater, a veteran with disability, told Atlanta’s CBS affiliate.
2 Chainz posted on Instagram:
“I remember when we didn’t have hot water and I didn’t want my friends to know, so I told them it was something wrong with that bathroom and they couldn’t use my mommas,” he wrote on one Instagram post. “I remember using the oven to heat the house, I would stand in the kitchen for hours to stay warm. I remember waiting until the water co. close at 5, so we could use a tool and turn the water back on until 6 a.m. I remember going to sleep hungry. I remember a long-ass extension cord coming from the neighbors house to mine to borrow they’re lights. I remember stealing cable, cars, clothes etc., no matter how much pain I endured I smiled on the outside. It was my defense mechanism. I remember.”
