The owner of the once in-demand Pink Trap House recently announced plans to demolish the home, but 2 Chainz, who made the site popular last year, wants to save it.

During an interview with TMZ at the Los Angeles International Airport, the rapper called the property "the Eiffel Tower of Atlanta" and said it should not be destroyed.

“I don’t think they would knock down the Statue of Liberty. We need to keep that up,” he said. “We changed the connotation of ‘trap house’ from something that was considered negative to something that was considered positive.”

In June 2017, the artist flipped the rental, located at 1530 Howell Mill, to promote his album "Pretty Girls Like Trap Music." The home, which became a social media sensation, was used for a listening party, HIV testing, church service and several other events.

Although it was repainted white after 2 Chainz’s lease ended last July, he still wants to preserve the building. He said he might even give Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms a call for help.

“I might need to holler at Keisha Bottoms,” he said. “Let’s try to save the Pink Trap House.”
