Riding high off the success of his mixtape single “Spend It” Atlanta native Tity Boi aka 2 Chainz is bubbling just below the mainstream surface, and fans of his often humorous wordplay couldn’t be more excited about it.
The Atlanta-based emcee, who’s worked with the likes of Lil Wayne, Ludacris and T.I., came to the Forbes studio late last month (video below) to discuss the inspiration behind his song–and gave his thoughts on the reasons behind hip-hop’s growing interest in Forbes.
“Hip-hop deals with bragging and braggadocio, being boastful,” 2 Chainz explained. “It’s always been about who’s got the most money. A way that you can detect it is, [a valuation] coming from a magazine that’s reputable.” — Forbes Magazine
