That awkward moment when 2 Chainz gets jacked in broad daylight and denies it happened like the video footage doesn't exist. But why? Because rappers be lyin, about everything, in today’s hype-fueled, fantasy-polluted rap game. Here are ten more of the greatest lies ever told by your favorite rappers. Take a look.
If we ALL watched the Tity Boi robbery video (from several different angles), but he denies being robbed, did IT really happen? Who YOU gonna believe: A 36-year-old rapper who rocks leather kilts or your lying eyes?
“I look in my fridge/my sh*t lookin’ scarce” – Rawse, “Hold Me Back” Greatest bold-faced lie EVER told in music history? As of 2013, YES.
“Sittin’ next to Hillary smellin’ like dank/Presidential pardon, name one n**ga out there harder than him/I’ll wait” – Jay-Z, “B*tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix)” Humpback Hov is the second greatest liar in rap history who brought you such classics as “Lost 92 bricks, had to fall back” (“Never Change”) and “Me give my heart to a woman? Not for nothing, never happen/I’ll be forever mackin” (“Big Pimpin”). Facts only.
First, this: “I was in too deep like Mekhi Phife” – Kanye West, “I Don’t Like (Remix)” Then, most recently, this: “I keep it 300 like the
Spartans Romans” – “Black Skinheads”
King Yeezus loves rewriting history (Romans in "300?" Word?) and rarely ever gets his facts straight but swears he’s a Steve Jobs-level genius. LIES.
“My ultimate intention is to uplift rather than degrade our community” – apology letter to Emmitt Till’s family. Oh? “Beautiful black woman, I bet that b*tch look better red” (“Right Above It”) is uplifting?
“I can make c*caine/I just fell in love with a Cuban/I just left Colombia/Always making bricks, me and Hector” – Young Scooter, "Colombia" Four consecutive lies in a hook with the wrong “Colombia” on his single cover? Only Young Scooter, who may be bolder than Rawse.
“And then I was surrounded by this blue electricity, and then It stops and I look out the window and I see a black disc fly down in front of the window, sits there and then flies out” – Lupe describing his close encounter with aliens. When everyone thinks you’re completely-insane (or smashed Erykah Badu), just lie and claim you were visited by aliens as a child. Lupe did.
"Walking up the dark stairwells, elevators was out of order, yeah. Worth two hundred million now" – Nas, “No Introduction” $200 million? Nas. NAS. Cmon, bruh. Your child support struggles were VERY public. SMH.
“I’m tryin’ to put platinum eyebrows on these hos. I Just bought me a platinum football field, n*gga, you understand?” – Birdman, "#1 Stunna" "Platinum" and "football field" in the same sentence? 100% chance that's a lie.
