Rap heavyweight 2 Chainz is helping those in need. Instead of re-opening his Atlanta diner Escobar Lounge and Restaurant he’s taking the time to feed the homeless.
2 Chainz Puts On For The A
Deuce went to his Instagram page to share a video of him walking the street with locals lined up outside his storefront waiting for meals.
“Instead Of opening @escobaratlanta up today we decided to feed the homeless.”
Georgia Announces Re-Opening Plans
Chainz might force himself to stay indoors a little longer than expected. The hip-hop star has reacted to Georgia governor Brian Kemp announcing plans to reopen some of the state’s businesses on Friday. Last week, he went online to share the headline-generating announcement. Instead of going into a deep caption, he referenced Georgia being a Republican state.

Wait, There’s More
On April 20, Brian Kemp broke the massive news. He revealed his state’s rollout for businesses including restaurants to reopen under social distancing requirements.
The governor’s order will allow gyms, bowling alleys, salons and some other indoor facilities closed under his shelter in place order to resume operations by Friday if they comply with social distancing requirements and meet other safety standards. And restaurants, which were banned from in-person dining, will be allowed to reopen on April 27 if they meet guidelines his office will release later this week. Theaters will also be covered by those new standards. Bars and nightclubs will stay shuttered. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Before You Go
Recent reports claimed Georgia had hit its peak in deaths caused by coronavirus. However, initial projections claimed it wouldn’t be reached until next month.
The model from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation now shows that Georgia passed its peak for virus-related deaths April 7, and hospitals may have reached their peak demand on resources last week. Earlier projections showed those milestones would not be reached until early May, after Gov. Brian Kemp’s original stay-at-home order was scheduled to expire April 30. (WSB-TV)
