2 Chainz Explains Why He Doesn’t Write Rhymes To The Beats He Receives


Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz sat down with Billboard recently to discuss his 4th Album, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, working with Organized NoizeDe La Soul + much more.

Tity Boi aka 2 Chainz was not shy about letting Billboard know that he belongs on the magazine cover, and that is one of three major items on his bucket list.

The way 2 Chainz interacts with producers is interesting as well…

When asked about memorizing his rhymes instead of writing them down, the Hair Weave Killer had this to say:

“Yeah, I don’t like writing down anything. I feel like I could waste a good idea on just listening to a track. I don’t want to hear 15 beats. I don’t want to waste my studio time listening to beats. When I come, I want to work. Load them up. I’m going to come off the top. And out of the three [beats chosen by a producer], I hope one of them is something I can keep or keep going off of. That’s what I’m banking on. For the last couple years, every song has been like that. Except for my features – I have to get them so I can know what the fuck I’m going to rap about. I think most artists I work with know that I’m cuckoo like that.”
