    @MosDef, Haha tru but I’m 20 so I’m good. I listen to 2Chainz when I’m not in the mood for lyricism I think his an alright rap artist with his humor & catchy style.

    @The Royal One, you think he has humor?lol bro there’s nothing funny about his music. Plus there’s times I feel like bumping shit too and that’s why there’s artist like schoolboy q, danny brown you better music and bumps just as good. No excuses royal especially from you, one post your badging on Wayne which is cool idc considering he’s pretty below average but then another day your here saying 2chainz album is alright haha

    @MosDef, im 16 nd I cant stand 2 chainz, he’s terrible, if you want humor with lyrics listen to the old eminem, hopsin, childish gambino, or like mosdef said danny brown

    The Royal One Reply:

    Haha.Just a little bit of humor. Couple of my friends said “check out that new 2Chainz man it’s hot” I listened to it to shut them up and thought is was aiite more below average songs than good but I liked about 4 songs. I’m just waiting for my guy Kendrick to drop.@MosDef,

    Im with Royal One, im heavy on lyical hip hop such as Nas, Jay Z, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar….BUT every now and then i enjoy listening to ghetto/fun music! Depending on my mood, hell i even blast Lil B! Its not always about being lyical!

    good production, weak lyrics, lots of hype =2chainz,rick ross,…
    & if you want rap to bump your head too ( it’s still music after all) go listen to
    Outkast,neptunes, schoolboy q, asap, danny brown, cypress hill, jarren benton, fugees –> fun doesn’t have to be braindead…
    (the beat to ‘yuck’ was thight though)
