2 Chainz and Lil Wayne acquired ‘The Most Expensivest’ things
Lil Wayne wrapped up the first season of his Young Money Radio podcast on July 17, and 2 Chainz was one of his guests for the final episode.
Lil Wayne welcomed him onto the show by saying he’s been buying “a whole bunch of s**t off the reruns” of Most Expensivest. As 2 Chainz laughed, Lil Wayne said his living room is full of stuff and more is on the way.
So far, among the items he bought are the Dreamlight sleep mask, Spire portable studio, and he’s waiting on the Lamborghini massage chair. As it so happens, 2 Chainz has most of the things Wayne rattled off, and he is still waiting on his own Lamborghini chair.
As noted in the clip below, that slice of heaven is $30,000.
2 Chainz says he doesn’t meet anyone on the show beforehand
The rapper hailed the series for being a great platform for him saying, “They recognize my s*** everywhere I go. Most Expensivest has got a real strong brand and it’s super-duper organic.” One thing that viewers may not know is that 2 Chainz meets the vendors for the first time during filming.
“When I meet these folks, the camera’s rolling so I’ve got to figure out why you’re here, and then I’ve got to figure out why it’s so much, and then I’ve got to figure out why you love it so much. And they just capture all that…”
If you’re already a fan of the show, then you know 2 Chainz sometimes brings a friend along when checking out the goods. Past guests include Erykah Badu, Lil Duval, and Tyga. Lil Wayne says he wants to participate in an episode too, and 2 Chainz ensured him they can set that up. Look out!
