Rapper 2 Chainz is no stranger to giving back to the community, but he has decided to do so in a way that nobody has ever seen before.

Atlanta’s accidental tourist attraction, 2 Chainz’ Pink Trap House, turned into a hub of sexual education and treatment during the Fourth of July.

The marketing tool driving the rapper’s newest album, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, is more than a popular Instagram back drop, the art installation served as an art gallery and even a church.

In collaboration with the Fulton County Board of Health, Test Atlanta, and Atlanta Aids, 2 Chainz hosted a free HIV screening at the multi-functional trap house.

In a city where the HIV rate is similar to that of a third world country, a free testing clinic, which also provides sexual education to the public, is definitely needed.

2 Chainz’ album, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, debuted as number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, so his marketing team might have actually struck gold by connecting community engagement with art.

A management team staffer for 2 Chainz told Fox 5 Atlanta that the house is rented through July 6, but they may extend the lease due to the location’s popularity.
