What more could you want from the “Best Male Hip-Hop Artist” than what 2 Chainz has delivered over the past year. Within a full year, we’ve seen Chainz officially make the transition from “Tity Boi” to the rapper even your grand-mama knows. His lyrics can be called into question, but what’s wrong with being able to memorize every lyric after just one listening? He’s showed off his acting chops in shows like “2 Broke Girls” and “Law & Order,” made Nicki Minaj shake her money-maker on numerous occasions (“Luv Dem Strippers” and “Beez In The Trap”), invaded Hot 97’s Summer Jam, made it look cool to run from gun-totting robbers and more. How can 2 Chainz not win?

    Kendrick sure disappointed me. The dude came out with some really unique concepts and I was excited. Now he is just rapping about pussies and getting blowjobs 24/7 like the rest of hem, it’s too bad.

    My vote is for 2 Chainz, a humble dude who paid his dues for a long time and respects other artists. Not a single person is dissing 2 Chainz because he’s a good dude. Props to that.

      …..what
      Outside of Kendricks album, which had way more subject matter than pussies and blowjobs, what song, thats actually, kendricks has he done?

      • Lolrax

        His new freestyle on UOENO is horrid, so is his verse of that track with 50 Cent. He’s on the pussy trail and fans are tiring of it. Even though those aren’t his own songs, that’s what Kendrick has fr his fans between albums? Nah

        • CorXy StXwart

          I asked what song has Kendrick done. Thats two songs that he only had one verse each on. so two verses are enough for you to say Kendrick disappointed you? And i cant agree that “the fans” are tiring of it because most people need more than two verses to get tired of someone. Are you sure youre not just jumping the gun

          • Lolrax

            It’s a trend that he’s on, there are more but I just couldn’t remember Them. I’m saying rap fans are getting fed up with “pussy music” not Kendrick because he is awesome, but he’s on the path and I hope he stops because he gave me a bit of hope when it came to rap having a future outside of artists asking their fans to imagine them getting head. “I’m in her mouth like I know I can have kids”, fuck that shit.

            you talkin bout fuckin problems too? c’mon son, people love to say someone fell off or changed. If he on a feature he gone change things up of course, but if thats all it takes for you to change your mind on him you really wasnt much of a fan in the first place.

            Real tlk, an artist has to grasp some attention. So, involving themselves with features they have to attract attention of which revolves around the actual concept of the record. So, if that means talk abt fuckin’ bitches, guess what? He talkin abt fuckin bitches. In order to stay relevant you have to jump on these big records that aren’t in your catalog to showcase you have that area covered. So, when you do such a record it isn’t brand new to your general audience. And with K Dot’s background, I don’t see him doing things of that nature involving his own material. He’s the Nas of the West Coast, believe it or not. But, if you’re getting tired of what he’s doing then, don’t call yourself a fan.

          U serious? his verse with Fifty on we up was bad and that on Uoeno? u need to clean your benzino ears. Those verses were sick. Just stick to your lil wayne. Kendrick is too ill for you.

    • acapwn

      I don’t get the logic. Kendrick Lamar is the superior artist but since he raps about pussy and sex now in your opinion, 2 Chainz is better?

    • RMfag

      I see the problem with rapping about pussy, but I don’t see whats wrong with talking about blowjobs. I suck everyone off anyway……
