2 Chainz Addresses Young Jeezy Omission From MTV's Hottest MCs List

2 Chainz explains why he thinks the Brain Trust over at MTV skipped over Young Jeezy.

2 Chainz wasn’t included on MTV’s Hottest MCs list, but he’s more concerned with Young Jeezy’s omission from the ranking. During an interview with DJ Self, Tity Boi spoke on the Snowman being left off the list and how listeners are having a hard time getting accustomed to his developed rap style.

“When Jeezy first came out, there was so much swag in his music. Now, he’s rapping. But at first, it was like his lifestyle,” he said. “The dude came from a kitchen. He’s really a d-boy. A lot of people really didn’t understand it, you couldn’t even understand the slang unless you had something to do with the trap. Unless you’re from Atlanta. We thought he was the illest nigga around for being able to explain the story on them beats like that. But everyone else took a minute.”

According to 2 Chainz, fans are still taking the time to digest Jeezy’s latest album TM103, which is why he may not have been considered for the list.

“So now that he’s rapping and this is his third album, it took so long, I think people are not just taking the time to digest that joint, because it’s a well put-together project and I was surprised about it because he put out a lot of mixtapes that had good music on it as well.”

    Drew - Dude, I understand you're home schooled, but try and keep up. Wayne will be on any list MTV has simply because he's the "in" rapper right now. Jay is the veteran. Kanye is the poster child for "safe music". Plus, all those people have stayed relevant. Jeezy literally disappeared, then admitted he lost focus which led to his album taking forever to come out. Why then would MTV consider him?

  • Jeezy

    Jeezy deserve to be on the list. he had about 5 albums worth of material.and thats before tm103 which would mean he actually dropped 6 albums if u check his mixtape music. They are album quality shit... Especially that song "Count it up" with Titti Boi. Count it up had potential like "I luv it"

  • bisquic

    This guys name is Tity Boi?....really

  • Brandon

    It's funny how you nggas say Ross ain't lyrical. Again, lame nggas don't even attempt to listen to the progression off Rick Ross. Dude got serious bars and he paint the picture of his raps and it just about dope and material things, it's how used the words to explain what he talking about.

    • Fuck u up

      U must be really mentally shallow to say Ross has serious bars and he paint bad pictures dat r shallow like bow wow rhymes.

  • Be clear

    I dont listen to Jeezy for lyricism and anybody who does is a damn fool. I listen to his music because it holds a HUGE motivation factor. And on top of that, ITS BELIEVABLE.

  • Mitch 3K

    Jeeyz made a gold certified record that did pretty well with critics....... but MTV doesnt think thats "Hot" Here's how Jeezy could make it onto the MTV Hottest MCS list Go on camera and kiss Freddie Gibbs on the mouth Grow a mohawk and wear some pants 5 sizes too small Sing pussy whipped "Baby you broke my heart'Woe is Me/Will I ever love again" songs over and over Cover yourself in Grease and go to the VMA's wearing a mini skirt, take center stage and sing "I'm a little tea pot" Thats the kind of Faggotry, simpness and Coonery that MTV thinks is hot Fuck MTV, Jeezy went gold and is selling out clubs coast to Coast, he already won the real prize

  • Ricky Rozay

    Simply put, this nigga Jeezy aint hot thats why he wasnt on the list. 2 Chainz needs to stop dickriding cuz Jeezy aint been hot for a minute. Only thing this nigga did was catch feelins cuz he know Ross was hangin with Meech and all them and Jeezy for years was one of em tag alongs. Thats a fact. Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jr88

    jeezy is everything these fake rappers talk about...snow man is back

    • Miamiboi

      yall niggas confused. Miami ride for jeezy more den atlanta do Atlanta was riding with gucci at dat time jeezy got more love in Miami den Ross. As much as I love jeezy music I know he not real he a fake even pimp c said it " pimp c said jeezy was wearing his pants rolled up like ll cool j wit a bookbag on when he saw meech. Jeezy knew it was true dats y he never responded to pimp c until he died. Remember on my president is black jeezy said I'm forgiving you pimp c" how can u forgive a Nigga when they dead dat don't make no sense jeezy is a fuckboy for dat one. He didn't keep it 100 ain't no way jeezy still got bricks for 17.5 and u think he real gtfoh u probably never seen a quarterkey

  • ItsTheTruth

    I guess 2 Chainz doesn't know that TM103 is Jeezy's 4th album (not 3rd)

  • Anonymous

    Jeezy has been around for years. Why would anybody put him on a hottest MC's list? That would be like Lebron James playing in the rookie vs. sophomore game during All Star weekend.

    • Miami

      put it like dis Denzel young I love jeezy music but if ross would of came out before jeez on def jam jeezy wouldn't have a career only reason y we all know jeezy is because he came out first Ross would of really stole his fans like he doin now.everybody would have been sayin jeezy copied ross Oh yea and next time don't get your opinions/statements from online gtfoh poormans dream I read day already somewhere else

  • Mu

    Thank God for my ability to see past the swag and hype... I've been telling my niggas for YEARS that Jeezy is overrated as an emcee. My assessment has been that he is a real dude that lived what he was rapping about and ppl could feel that in his music. All the unique ad-libs added "swag" to his music, but I've never really been impressed with his as a lyricist. Ross single-handedly stopped Jeezys buzz because he came with good music. He absolutely didn't belong on this list anyway.

      Triple Beam Dreams ft. Nas was the best work I heard from Rozay. apart from that.. yeah he's pretty mediocre. somehow he stayed hot the whole year, figures.

      You're kidding about Rick Ross, right? Ross talks about the same shit over and over again (being a mobster, materialistic shit) with the same flow. He's boring, all of his songs, albums, mixtapes, and verses on other people's songs sound the same. No creativity, no growth, no replay value. He's just like every other rapper out there, just talking about the same dumb shit over and over again.

      I Used To Extremely Dislike Jeezy Because He Lyrics Were Lazy and He Was Gettin' By On His Adlibs But Slowly But Surely His Music Overall Got A Whole Better and I Now Look Out For His New Stuff. On Another Note People That Don't Like Rick Ross Don't Really Sit Down and Listen To His Lyrics and Just Pass Judgement By His Singles. Every Album This Guy Has Put Out Is Dope Because He's A Student of The Game and That's Why He's Winnin'

    • GoReadABook

      Haha where did I question your intelligence? I just said Ross is garbage lyrically. I agree with Ross having taken Jeezy's popularity, I never fucked with Jeezy anyways, and the events did coincide, and they are in the same sub-genre of rap. But I literally looked up a Complex list of Rick Ross' 25 best verses of 2011 right after I posted the comment and listened to them all and did not like one of them. I'm not not listening to Rick Ross because he lied about having formerly been a CO, I'm not listening because its not good music. That verse you just mentioned is alright though, easily the best I've ever heard from him. I can at least see now that there's a reason he garnered attention. But 90% of the way I gauge a rappers skill is based solely off of lyricism, which Ross lacks immensly. People are saying now he's the new Biggie. That marks a severe drop in the standard of quality in hip hop

    • Mu

      Damn, homie... GoReadABook tho? Because I mentioned Ross as someone who probably took a lot of Jeezy's fan base? Whether u like Ross or not, if u follow hiphop at all, its hard to argue with that because they are in the same lane musically and Ross' rise coincided with Jeezy's decline in popularity. I wasn't always a Ross fan, but when I heard the song "Mafia Music" on Deeper Than Rap, which really is one long verse, I started to get it. Yeah, he lied abt the CO thing, which was lame, but its too much garbage rap out here to not listen to good music cuz of some bullshit like that. Maybe u should go read some books before u question someone's intelligence based on a fucking opinion on a hiphop website... Prick

      Don't hold your breath waiting for that good Rick Ross verse...

    • GoReadABook

      Rick Ross? I don't even like Jeezy cuz I don't sell crack and thus really can't relate, but Ross? Ross 'cam with good music'????? Ross is AWFUL. Terrible rapper, I have continually checked for a good verse from him and have yet to hear one. In fact, his verse on Stay Schemin was one of the worst rap verses I have ever heard. Comparable to Lil B's verse on that Wayne song. If you can show me a good Ross verse I will bite my tongue but until then I can't listen to someone who fakes like he's a gangster when he used to be a C.O. I'm serious too someone give me suggestions as to a good quality Rick Ross verse, I am curious to see if he actually has some skills or if he's another inexplicably famous person

  • 50 Cent

    What happened with this young man is the shift in what's popular. If you recall my battle back in 07 with Kayne west. He had the more pop/gay swag and crowd on his side; while I came with the shoot em up beat em up style that niggas need to be men in today's society. But as the media would have it they played me off as the bad guy. But more on Jeezy he's suffering this with guys like Wayne, Rozzay, Drake, all of them are much softer than him and many would say they sold out but not really; this is who they really are and feel comfortable being in side(gay swag and pop) I never got into wearing the rainbow color clothes or very tight jeans, or tried to act like I was a jean designer but these guys did that's why you question who are they trying to target, certainly not the hardcore listeners. So if Jeezy wants his throne back he's going to have to do trap 2012 not trap from 2007. You need catchy beats and catchy hooks. Stop making depression like songs, make something crackheads/pill poppers can smoke to when they're at home with no life.
