Per Atlanta News, the attention grabber house will be demolished in the very soon! Atlanta-based rapper 2 Chainz leased an unremarkable home at 1530 Howell Mill Road in west Midtown and dumped a coat of paint on it that resembled Pepto Bismol. He etched the word “TRAP” in black lettering and parked a wide-body classic sedan in front of it. Even the stove that also sat in the front of the house was painted pink too.
All of this was to promote his 2017 album, “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.” The record was a success, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and eventually becoming certified gold. Fans flocked to the Pink Trap House in droves just to take pics at this pink house, something that nobody has ever done to promote an album. Unfortunately, soon the house will be nothing but a memory.

To Rohrig and Cartel Properties, the owners of the home, the 0.17 acres of dirt that the home sits on is more valuable than the house. According to Fulton County property records, the land at the address is valued at $237,600 while the house is valued at $194,000.
The house is still standing, its not painted pink anymore, its now all white. The home is currently empty and basically looking like the rest of the houses on that street. I can bet that without the address of the Pink Trap House, no one would know which house it is as per one tweet made by a fan:
I was super excited to go see @2chainz’s pink trap house in Atlanta this weekend only to find out it was just repainted 🙄🙄

There’s a Cartel Properties sign stuck in the window that says the home is available, but don’t be fooled. The one-time Pink Trap House is not for sale.
Rohrig says he has no timetable for demolishing it. Built in 1940, the house has five rooms and a total of 899 square feet of residential space. It also features a full basement and a covered porch.
As a fan of 2 Chainz, I totally applaud what he did with the house while he had it! I read of people using the house to hold exercise classes, performed free HIV tests, even other local artists used the house as a background for their own music video, and a place for tourists.
