Jessie J ft. 2 Chainz – Burnin’ Up

Jessie J ft. 2 Chainz - Burnin' Up


“Burnin’ Up” is Jessie J’s second single off her Sweet Talker album, out today (October 14th). The dance-floor ready track features production from Wallpaper and Axident, and 2 Chainz rapping: “Me and my homie on the dance floor / White girl in the middle, looking like an Oreo.” Which now, thanks to Oreo’s latest marketing scheme, is a simile that can be applied to any skin tone:



Simpsons yellow:



Smurf blue:



and, of course, Oompa, Loompa:



Because that’s what we’ve come to expect from 2 Chainz: insightful, progressive lyrics.

Tee FLii ft. 2 Chainz - 24 Hours




Southern California singer-rapper, TeeFlii recently dropped his second single, “24 Hours,” off his debut album, Starr — to be released later this year. The song features a verse from 2 Chainz, a beat by DJ Mustard and a chorus that begins with, “Girl, don’t hide that pussy / You should be the type to provide that pussy.”



…if you traced this song back its creation, would you find out where the #YesAllWomen campaign began?




Juvenile ft. 2 Chainz – Booty

Juvenile ft. 2 Chainz - Booty


Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”


I like to imagine he was talking about the job of writing songs about women’s asses when he said that.  That’s how Juvenile has interpreted it anyway. Check out Juvie’s latest, “Booty” featuring 2 Chainz.



R. Kelly ft. 2 Chainz – My Story

R. Kelly ft. 2 Chainz - My Story


“My Story” is the first single from R. Kelly’s upcoming album, Black Panties. The song features 2 Chainz, and covers the major details of R’s life, “This is my story: money, cars, bad hoes / This is my story / And I’m, stickin’, to it.” It’s unfortunate “golden showers” didn’t fit because that’s the story the rest of us are stickin to.


Black Panties drops tomorrow.


(That does not get old.)



Jason DeRulo ft. 2 Chainz – Talk Dirty

Jason DeRulo ft. 2 Chainz - Talk Dirty


Jason DeRulo took a quick break from writing songs about how much he loves his girlfriend, Jordin Sparks, to release his single, “Talk Dirty.”


2 Chainz makes a guest appearance for the sole purpose of demonstrating what it means to “talk dirty,” because DeRulo is about as proficient in dirty talk as Mayor Bloomberg is in Spanish.




Jeezy ft. Rocko & 2 Chainz – Benihana

Jeezy ft. Rocko & 2 Chainz – Benihana


[Old] Jeezy recently released new music featuring Rocko and 2 Chainz which will appear on his upcoming #ItsThaWorld Vol. 2 mixtape.


“Benihana” refers to the fact that at Benihana restaurants they make the food right in front of your face, just like how Jeezy cooks his drugs – right in front of your face.


Interested in remixing this song? Other comparable alternatives to “Benihana” include: “Jewish Deli,”  “Sushi Bar,” or “Panera Bread.” Or — if your remix is about doing something behind people’s backs, like talking — try “Applebee’s” or “Olive Garden.”

DJ Kay Slay ft. Juicy J, Jadakiss, 2 Chainz & Rico Love - Keep Calm


DJ Kay Slay recruited a slew of his friends for his latest single, “Keep Calm.”


I’ll keep you posted on the inevitable follow-up single, “And Carry On.”



2 Chainz – Used 2

Posted on: October 29th, 2013 by Tina

2 Chainz - Used 2


2 Chainz recently released the second single from his second album, which is titled: B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time because the less-stupid album title of Based On A T.R.U. Story was already taken, by him. “Used 2” is typical 2 Chainz, talking about turning his sex game into YouTube videos. (That’s definitely possible and something people really want to see.) Next, he practically lifts a verse straight out of “Back That Azz Up,” because copying someone else’s work and rhyming the word “yeah” with “yeah” is easier than actually trying. Obviously, I love it, I can’t say enough nice things about it.


But more importantly, watch the video below to see 2 Chainz breakdown the lyrics from his song, “Fork.” (The first part he explains the word “trap,” so skip ahead to the two-minute mark. Or don’t. Watch the whole thing – I don’t care what you do with your time.)


It’s like hearing Picasso explain “Guernica.”



Drake ft. Big Sean & 2 Chainz – All Me

Posted on: September 24th, 2013 by Tina

Drake ft. Big Sean & 2 Chainz - All Me


Drake’s latest album, Nothing Was the Same, dropped today and it is as dark and reflective as ever. (I love it, of course — Drake could record himself brushing his teeth and I’d probably say, “what a revelation – a true innovator.”)


Drake’s latest single, “All Me” is true to the spirit of the album, and is about working hard and making money all on his own.


I’d like to tell you this song is flawless, but 2 Chainz is on it, so it’s not. He rhymes “go off” with “go off.” (He thought of that with no help — all him). Fortunately, Drake comes in on the next verse and saves the day.



Swizz Beatz ft. 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj & Rick Ross – Hands Up

Posted on: September 17th, 2013 by Tina

Swizz Beatz – Hands Up


Swizzy recently released the club banger, “Hands Up,” from his 2014 album, Haute Living. (I imagine this song is the result of an especially rowdy dinner party at the Keys-Beatz house).


I must give credit where credit is due, and Nicki’s line, “You my son, no daddy, you a bastard – plus you got mad miles on your vag-card,” is awesome — specifically, the expression “vag-card.” How soon can we work this phrase into everyday conversation? Soon?


If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to start conversations about slutty men.
