2 Chainz wants to stop the violence and increase the peace. The Atlanta rapper is planning to use his platform to end  the kind of gun violence that recently took the life of his late friend Bankroll Fresh.

In an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, 2 Chainz said that Bankroll’s death was “senseless” and he can’t believe that he’s no longer here.

“Just know that we all together. We more family oriented than boss workers over here,” he said. “That’s just the relationship with everybody. It’s no bosses over here. Everybody’s a boss. So, Bankroll was his own boss. We was aligned. We shoulder to shoulder. And it’s just real unfortunate. It’s unbelievable that Bankroll Fresh is no longer with us, man. [Homie’s] trajectory was through the roof.

“It’s like he not even gone. He left such a huge mark,” he added. “I can hear him right now. I’ve been talking like him all morning. He’s a good friend. He touched everybody he came across. So, I definitely want to use my platform more wisely. As far as knowing we have a right to carry and all that, but just some of the gun violence is just senseless. I can dig protection, but certain stuff just don’t make sense.”

On Tuesday (March 8), hundreds of fans gathered for a candlelight vigil for Bankroll Fesh. “It’s a sad moment, but it’s a celebration out here,” said Bankroll’s friend Sereta Blackman.

2 Chainz shared a photo of the crowd at the vigil on his Instagram page. “The city luv Bank!! All these folks out there for him ..LEGEND,” wrote Deuces in the caption.

Props to 2 Chainz for his endeavors to stop the violence in Atlanta. Hopefully, other ATL rappers will follow suit.
