2 Chainz has certainly made his presence felt in 2012. The Def Jam signee and G.O.O.D. Music affiliate has dropped some of the biggest records of the year. From his highly successful introduction mixtape T.R.U. Realigion, to his number one album in Based on a T.R.U. Story, the artist formerly known as Titty Boi has revamped his image and delivered a big year. Congratulations to 2 Chainz on snagging The Source’s 3rd annual Man Of The Year Award.
Check out a few excerpts from the Man Of The Year story along with some great behind the scenes looks with the latest edition of our UnCovered series.
2 Chainz on changing his name: “It wasn’t like my name made me rap better. I worked my ass off….It felt good to outdo myself and just be omnipresent and be a part of everything.”
2 Chainz on his come up: “Those who haven’t been through that struggle don’t mind going to the zoo to pet the animals. They don’t wanna live in the zoo, but they don’t mind coming through. I’m someone who can show you around in a cool way where you don’t have to worry about getting eaten up.”
