2 Chainz Calls Out ‘Lazy’ Artists for Remixing His Songs

2 Chainz

Everyone from Wiz Khalifa to Brianna Perry has remixed 2 Chainz’ “No Lie,” but the Atlanta rapper has some words for those who want to rhyme over his beat: Find your own song.

While some may be flattered when another artist jumps on their record, 2 Chainz is not one of them. “Everybody alwayz REMIX my songs,” tweeted the artist formerly known as Tity Boi. “how bout u lazy artists,try 2kom up wit sumthn original,instead of replacing my words wit urs. MUSIC is fun.”

His Drake-assisted single has already spawned a plethora of remixes and it’s likely that his newly released record, “Birthday Song,” will follow suit unless his peers heed his advice.

2 Chainz, who is currently on tour with Nicki Minaj, has announced his own headlining tour, which will kick off on August 30 in Norfolk, Virginia. His Def Jam debut Based on a T.R.U. Story is due August 14.

    I checked only because he called someone lazy…really? He is extremely bad in my opinion (not MJ Bad, just bad…). The only verse I seemed to enjoy was on “Mercy” and it still wasn’t amazing, just good. He shouldn’t be mad people jump on good beats that he simply wasted ;P .

    Well 2 Chainz, its not like you make the beats for your own songs. They put as much effort into making the song as you. they are rapping over an already existing beat that you didn’t make

  10. LOL

    2 chainz is a horrible lyricist but somehow his music is still good. But aside from that, when people remix your songs they are showing respect. He needs to calm his old ass down and humble up.

    @KayeV, I can’t believe he was dumb enough to make that comment, much less that you for dumb enough to agree with it. I’m guessing something like %90 of all rappers came up off of mixtapes, which is what? Oh yeah, a tape of remixed tracks. Rapper mixing others songs BUILT the rap game, you artards.

    I like 2 Chainz a lot but that cockiness has GOT to go, he isn’t that special. You should be grateful that anyone wants to remix your music.

    Rauno Reply:

    @MH, TBH, nobody wants to remix HIS music. Their remixing the beat that the producer created. Therefore taking everything that 2 Chainz added. Maybe his sorry that someones remix might be better, who knows. He sucks lyrically so much yet i love his songs.

  22. Just Google Kelsnetwork and see what happens!

    2chainz can get arrogant when he scores his own hit album….

    I don’t blame him. He’s saying what a lot of other rappers are afraid to say.

    Hoe-ass bruva need to sit down and stfu!! Who’s bank rolling his associated? And who the hell is buying his music? Dude can’t rap to save his life. Sounds like 2 cents more than 2 chainz. Dude is an ungrateful b*atch. People remixing your tracks brings them notoriety and a legacy… check the effect it has on Kelly Rowland’s “motivation”. Chainz should be nominated for the worst rap lyric in the history of recorded music for his line in minaj’s “Been in the Trap”. I’m done … much like this dude’s longevity & career.

    Coming from him! 2Chainz is the most boring rapper in the game. Just as bad as Soulja Boy and Gucci Mane!

    He has no flow

    lmfao….”lazy” artists? Pardon me, but is this not the same 2Chainz who says :

    “Cut ya girl, now yo girl need a band-aid”

    “I’m drunk and high at the same time, drinkin’ champagne on the airplane”

    “Put his ass in a plastic bag with his trashy ass, take him out”

    i understand his point but hes ridiculous. his version sucks and his rap is not entertaining

  30. Stephen

    2 Chainz is such a little bitch, seriously. He needs to sit the fuck down and think about a career in something else. He tried to make “coupe the color of mayonnaise” work.

    There are other artists who have more talent in their left nut then 2 Chainz has in all those played out braids he has. Damn, and none of his shit memorable either.

    I think I’ve made my point.

    [Reply]

  31. Joe

    I think there some truth to what he said, with so many remixes one can hardly know the original but then again 2chainz is just scared other artists would do better on same beats

    [Reply]

  32. Tbozfan10

    Omg Every rapper does this! It’s an unofficial remix. What does he think MIXTAPES are? Aren’t you a rapper dude?

    Btw, the only verse he really goes hard on that I’ve heard is this song by Teaierra Mari called “You Did That.”

    @Tbozfan10, ture That. and he need to understand What that is

    I completely disagree with him i think it’s the nature of the game you want to hear your favorite artist get on the best current beats.

    The artists who remix his songs aren’t doing something different from what 2 Chainz does himself. He hears a beat, likes it and starts to write his verses. An artist hears the song, finds that the beat stands out and starts writing from there. It has nothing to do with laziness. As an artist you hear different things, so to hear a new approach to a certain beat is a fun and interesting thing, to me at least. As long as when it’s time for business, such as a studio album, you make sure your stuff is original. Other than that, I disagree with 2 Chainz.

  39. Viy Dayz

    yall calling him Old ass man Like he is 50 something year old he ain’t old he just don’t want people using his Beat to remix their own verse on his song since Artist think it’s Dope Song. and yeah 2 Chainz is Right about the Music is Fun

    [Reply]

    black Reply:

    @Viy Dayz, He’s 40 and just now poppin. he been rappin for a minute.

    He didn’t create the beat, the producer should gripe about it before he does. but now a days this is nota sign of laziness, it’s a marketing strategy. Its a part of the grind. You are still showing ya skills just using a familiar beat. It doesn’t mean you can’t create ya own songs.

    That’s why being that he was in this position long ago, this seems funny coming from him. This was lil waynes ticket, Nicki minaj’s too, and many others. Sounds like he is starting to feel himself now.

    Just last year, he had ppl tossing out flyers tring to be noticed. I remember at the lil wayne concert I went too. He was still going by tity boy and half the people didn’t even know him. And the white people were laughing at it.

    Now if he is talking about established artists, I can kind of see his point.

    Nigga who are you? I’ve heard more wack 2chain lines than good. Lazy rappers complaining about people using their beats..smh

  42. Hot Like Fire

    Meh. He can feel whichever way he chooses to feel.

    For the people saying he’s not a lyricist… DUH! That’s so obvious, but being real, it’s a lot of rappers that would fall under the category of not being lyricists. I can definitely agree that’s he not the deepest or dopest of rappers, but whenever his part comes on in a song, folks be feeling it.

    I for one love his flow.
