After spending years in the game as Tity Boi, performing as part Playaz Circle, 2 Chainz adopted his necklace-referring moniker that ended up sticking with him for his career. Spending over a decade as Tity Boi, Chainz found success but it wasn’t until his name change that he really took f, creating hit after hit, charting album after another. The College Park rapper has a lot to be thankful for and it goes without saying that his talents on the mic are one those things. As many artists do, 2 Chainz considers himself to be the cream the crop and he has taken things a step further, declaring himself as a “walking legend” on Instagram.
He may not be wrong either as he’s letting evidence do the talking. Cutting and pasting the album covers throughout his discography, Chainz could very well be one the GOATs when putting things into perspective. His lyrical wordplay and one-liners resonate when listening to any his music and he has created a method that works for him, keeping him relevant among the Jay-Z’s and Kanye’s the world. While the artist is perhaps best known for his street bangers, he has shown the ability to create club hits as well, giving him the versatility to back up his bold claims.
While it is likely no surprise to see Chainz think so highly himself, where does he rank on your list? Top 10, 20, 50?
