It's amazing what a name change can do for your career.
2 Chainz had one hell of a 2012 musically, and made his acting debut on 2 Broke Girls earlier this year. He's continuing to dabble in acting, recently posting photos of himself on the set of Law & Order: SVU to Instagram. He has a made-for-television personality, so we can only imagine how this will turn out. "Calvin 'Pearlie' Jones" just sounds entertaining.
This is what winning at life looks like.
