In case you missed it, Atlanta’s current most buzzing attraction, the ‘Pink Trap House,’ is making an even bigger name for itself.

2 Chainz was initially utilizing the landmark to promote his new album entitled ‘Pretty Girls Like Trap Music’ which dropped June 16.

Since then hundreds have gravitated to 1530 Howell Mill to take advantage of a good photo with a pink house, and some good aesthetic all for the culture.

Now, the Atlanta native is taking it a bit further and truly doing it “for the culture” by utilizing the ‘Trap House’ to serve the community; acting as a church one day and an HIV testing clinic the next.

On Sunday, the house literally was a combination of when the trap and church meet.

A service was conveniently held in the backyard of the house hosted by groups in the community to encourage others to join local organizations and get involved, according to Fox 5.

“I appreciate 2 Chainz and the whole team for putting this house up because in a lot of respects it’s reminding people that this is a real thing in our city,” Pastor Michael Wortham of Ebenezer Baptist Church told FOX 5.

Wortham is thankful for the pink trap house, and how it’s promoting awareness of the community’s issues.

“We can’t listen to the music without really addressing the systemic issues and the systematic oppression that causes the trap to even exist and so that’s the reason we pulled together ‘Trap Church’ is to really to talk about the other side of the trap, to talk about how we as a community have a responsibility to come together and help our brothers and sisters who are facing these tough situations.”

Tity Boi took it even beyond the next day, by announcing his promotion of sexual awareness with the Fulton County Board of Health among other sponsors for free testing of HIV.

“Fulton County Board of Health say they pulling up today!! Come get tested and know your status! By the way this is Free99,” 2 Chainz took to Instagram.

The community definitely pulled up on the “Trap Clinic” with reportedly 300 people in attendance and 53 people tested, according to 11 Alive.

With the trap house booming, negativity tried to make an appearance through complaints from locals because a lack of parking and built up traffic in the area.

However, positivity prevails since there’s not much the Atlanta Police Department can do because the trap house is labeled as private property, according to Fox 5.

A source on 2 Chainz’s team told 11 Alive the lease may be extended past July 7, due to popularity.

Trappin’ ain’t dead, long live the “Pink Trap House.”
