Due to "unforeseen circumstances," one of Atlanta's foremost trapstars, 2 Chainz, was forced to push his Kansas City show from Sunday to Monday earlier this week. Subsequently, opener Young Dolph quietly dropped off the bill, but 2 Chainz promised fans a surprise in exchange. That surprise turned out to be Georgia trio Travis Porter, a group known for their over-the-top booty jams and perhaps setting the stage for the massively popular Migos.

Following Travis Porter and a set from Skooly, an artist signed to 2 Chainz' TRU imprint, Tity Boi rolled onto the stage, in a very literal fashion. 2 Chainz underwent surgery on his leg earlier this year, and rather than cancelling his headlining tour, he brought a nurse -- perhaps not a licensed one -- on the road and performed from a pimped-out wheelchair.

2 Chainz was also accompanied by his "Trap Choir" for some songs, adding an unorthodox dynamic to the show. Many rappers have become accustomed to performing with a drummer, but few, if any, have brought this many backup vocalists. As suggested by the eerie pink trap house standing at the stage's rear, 2 Chainz performed numerous cuts from his latest album "Pretty Girls Like Trap Music."
