2 Chainz is making a much lauded appearance in the June issue of GQ Magazine. Our friends over there were kind enough to send us an outtake from their shoot along with a rundown of their feature.
Here’s the excerpt via GQ:
In June’s Comedy issue, GQ names the “40 Things Making Us Laugh Right Now,” and chief among them is rapper 2 Chainz, whom we crown the “King of Two Liners.” The Atlanta-based rapper’s twisted humor and tawdry, spit-take-funny two-beat punch lines make him more than worthy of the title, and have helped him become one of hip-hop’s most in-demand MCs.
GQ catches up with Chaniz to hear how he’s keeping things fresh on his next album, coming out in September. “There’s nothing new under the sun. Everyone’s sold dope, f***ed b***hes, popped champagne, shot guns,” he says about the lyrics for his sophomore effort. “I’ll take the extra minutes to do it a new way.”
2 Chainz is definitely a funny guy, but some folks are divided about whether his lyrical skills are for real or a real joke. Are you looking forward to Tity Boi’s next project?
