So anybody who knows me knows I’m an unabashed fan of 2 Chainz. Is it because of his amazing lyrical dexterity? No. Is it because of his socially aware commentary? No. Is it because of his “everyman” relatability? Definitely not. The “tru” answer, pun intended, is much simpler: this motherfucker is entertaining as hell. I mean, c’mon son. Anybody who can listen to “Riot” and not want to do what the song says is a communist. There, I said it. In any case, Tity 2 Necklace just released his new single featuring Kanye West, so let’s talk about it. Why? Well, why the hell not?
Now I won’t lie to you, this song might have to grow on me. After the first 5 listens, it simply sounds like every other Rap song on the radio. Honestly, I expected more from a 2 Chainz/Kanye West collaboration. I won’t sit here and claim Tity Boi reinvented the wheel, but at least he’s been able to make stale subject matter sound a little more interesting. Sidebar, if you didn’t know 2 Chainz used to be called Tity Boi, just go, go, play frisbee with land mines. In any case, after the classical classicness of “Mercy,” I expected this track to be much bigger. I don’t even see the reason for having Kanye on a song like this. To me, it’s a waste of a feature. Then again, his verse wasn’t that spectacular either, so I guess it fits.
In the end, the only real redeeming factor of this song is the premise. Truthfully, I don’t know of anyone who wouldn’t want a big booty girl for their birthday, women included. Don’t front ladies, you know good and well y’all be going super hard in the strip club. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen women throw more money at some strippers than the dudes they’re with. I don’t blame you. Fat asses deserve equal opportunity love. In that respect, 2 Chainz, you’re absolutely right.
All in all, you can take a listen to the song below and judge for yourself. I’m sure this song is going to eventually get stuck in my head. That’s the way the world works, I guess. Good day.
