2 Chainz’s Legendary ‘Pink Trap House’ Now White, Set To Be Demolished

College Park rapper 2 Chainz made his Pink Trap House a highly sought after local landmark but the old house on busy Howell Mill Road on Atlanta’s northside has new owners, new paint–and new plans to tear it down, according to reports.

The Pink Trap House was part of 2 Chainz’s promotion for his 2017 album “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music”, and the house quickly drew hundreds, sometimes well over a thousand, visitors per day.

Folks came from as far away as Europe and Canada to get selfies taken in front of the home, and to parlay with the others who made the trap house pilgrimage.

The scene around the house was lit both day and night.

Impromptu concerts, rap battles, photo sessions, booty shaking and twerk contests in front of and behind the home were routine and plentiful.

Nearby businesses initially embraced the increased traffic, but then complained bitterly to local news media.

But the new owners have said the house is coming down. 

“My plan eventually is to tear it down,” Matt Rohrig of Cartel Properties, which owns the house, told The Atlanta Journal Constitution. “I’m not leasing it out long term.”

2 Chainz, formerly known as Tity Boy when he was part of the rap duo Playaz Circle, turned the house into a free HIV testing center for a few days before his lease was up last year.

Being a former landmark certainly didn’t hurt the home’s value: the house sold for $450,000 last year.
