2 Chainz Reacts To Grammy Nomination For "Rap Album of the Year"

2 Chainz explains his personal reaction to a Grammy nod, as well as whom he thanked.

2 Chainz has had himself quite a year, including garnering a Grammy Award nomination for "Rap Album of the Year" for his album Based on a T.R.U. Story.

In an interview with DJ Drama on Shade45, the artist formerly known as Tity Boi reacted to the news of the nomination.

"I can't say, 'I told you so,'" admitted Chainz. "All I can say is that I'm honored. ...I didn't know. Honestly, I didn't know."

2 Chainz quickly gave props to some of the artists he felt most benefited his career this year. "I definitely texted the big homie [Kanye West], I told 'Ye that I appreciated him giving me the opportunity to get on 'Mercy,' because that song was huge for me. And the homie Drake, me and him collaborated on 'No Lie, ' that's already platinum. It's a few people I feel assisted my campaign that I wanted to tell I appreciate on the way up."

    "Nah, Def Jam put him where he is now. Simple as that" The hate must be burning a hole through your screen. Def Jam can sign someone, but they can't do the work for them. Not saying 2 Chainz is some kind of genius, but he re-invented himself (not easy to do) and seems to be everywhere these days.

      Nah, Def Jam put him where he is now. Simple as that. Do you think its a coincidence that suddenly he evolved from a long forgotten one-hit wonder to the most heavily featured artist of the game? Playaz Circle had trash sale numbers, aside from "Duffle Bag Boy" there were never hot, not to mention the actual skills of the members. How did he become a multiple Grammy nominated star in 3 years from a flopped average Joe? Especially that he haven't changed a bit, still the same simpleton with ABC lyrics who always been. Such miracles cannot happen without serious label interference ...

    Why so many people dissing 2 chainz on such an accomplishment???? WHats the matter did they record stores or itunes not except your EBT cards?? WHats a matter babymomma(s) didnt buy it for you???

    Whenever a rapper says "I didn't know" when he's nominated for the most important award in music, we should believe him. He's basically saying "I didn't know the music I made was capable of being recognized by the Grammys". Like others have said, it's not 2 Chainz fault he was nominated, he's as surprised as all of us. The problem with the genre we all love is that the corporate machine (urban radio, BET, etc.) and dumb, ignorant fans have made hip-hop largely about popularity and image. 2 Chainz and his marketing/management team did a brilliant job of getting the 2 Chainz name out there and his popularity soared as a result. The Grammys make their nominations around quality of the music AND how the fanbase responds to the music. Regardless of what we think about him, 2 Chainz had a #1 album. No way in hell he wins though

  • yeaaahh

    What people fail to realize is that at the end of the day it's still music. You can be the most lyrical rapper but nobody is going to listen to you if you can't make songs. And since there are few in this era who can do both, people settle for what they can vibe and have fun to..

    • Anonymous

      Agreed. For the most part music is about entertainment, having a good time. People like 2 Chainz know this, so they act dumb because they know the more rational rappers almost never last. Their thought provoking lyrics and dictionary inspired metaphors get thrown in a dark closet just like Schwarz's blow up doll.

  • Killem Dafoe

    Don't blame the bullshit ass artists for being nominated. Blame the dumb fucking consumer that couldn't make the distinction between the wack rapper and the real emcee! You morons that support this trash are to blame,and also the yes men in the artists lives that don't recognize, or scared to say when they people ain't up to par with things. It's your fault! "Watch the Devil win it, some say it's our fault!" 50 points to whoever can name the song, artists and album that was on...

    • jj

      My dude, you ain't say nothin but the truth! You can't get mad at 2 Chainz, Future, Waka Flocka, Gucci, etc for making trash music because people buy it, download it, whatever. These artists and the labels know it and they give the people what they want. Personally, I can't listen to that trash, but for every one of me, there's 20 niggas that blast that crap and swear its the hottest stuff they ever heard.

    At the end of the day, this nigga makes "2 Chainz" type of music. That's the problem. Whenever this niggas are about to drop an album y'all start over hyping them and shit and when the shit is released y'al get disapointed. But what'd you expect, some "Illmatic" type of shit coming from a guy like this??? I ain't mad at him at all.

  • Absurd

    Rap Album Of The Year is like the MVP award of hip hop. You can't give it to a guy like 2 Chainz. I'd rather see Lil Wayne win one every year than a rapper like Titti Boi.

  • Mr. Love

    Can someone please answer me these questions: -If you are not contending for the Grammy why does it matter to you, that this man is? Is he your God? Is He your God's Enemy? WHAT??? Why the hate? (and I promise you, any one reading this...IS NOT CONTENDING.) -How is this article worthy of your thoughts, and why are so many people in a rush to spread an opinion, instead of seeking understanding? -Do people, in general, not realize that the words they use only reflect who they are, not who they are describing? Think of who uses the following words, when they are used, and why: Nigga, Nigger, Coon, Coonery, Bitches, Honkey, Wigger, Gay, Fag, Faggot...Those words have no purpose other than to help intelligent people know who to avoid in business and in life, when those words are used to tear down. There are times a few of those words can be used intelligently but that's because 'gay', 'coon', and 'bitches' are actual terms, not rooted in hate. But intended to help in communication between brother and sister. ( gay= happy, merry, joy...coon = the shortened form of raccoon....bitches= female dogs (popular term used by dog breeders and handlers), male form is stud...) To all my white and black (and all between) brothers and sisters...friends and enemies...know that you are loved and that you were made for more than your own selfish desires. I love you. If you don't believe me, challenge it any way you want. The Love I have for you wont change. Be Blessed all...I hope these words help you grow closer to those you love and help you understand your enemies better. Have a peaceful day all.

      the reason for the hate is simply 2 chainz is evil. theres no other word for it, he takes music that people love, and exploits the fuck out of it. he has no substance, (not that he writes his own rhymes anyways), and his raps make no literal sense, its actually a bunch of keywords that try to appeal and exploit those who are livin the struggle.. hold up in clubs, you know that life.. he takes the trap, and glamourizes it, tries to make it into something cool.. for all this exploitation and fuckery , this dude has the audacity to even accept a grammy and be honored as rap album of the year ? FUCK THAT, dudes like nas, the roots, kanye, wu block, slaughterhouse, etc actually WORKED HARD, AND PUT THEIR SOULS INTO THEIR MUSIC. people hate because this worlds full of it, as long as money hungry RATS exist there will be no peace. they will do ANYTHING to get money, including destroying americas youth.

  • TruthBeTold

    WOW, HONESTLY WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT. if this dude wins a grammy i will have officially lost all hope for humanity. how can people be so OPENLY RETARDED and support this guy? HE DOESNT TRY AT ALL, his verses literally dont make any kind of sense, its like he jus shows up to the booth, downs a 40 , an says random shit that will hopefuly appeal to dumb mothers who are stupid enough to take his fake ass seriously.. fuck all of you.

    • meh

      yeah i got that about the album too, seemed like a bunch of random shit with some OK beats. But unless the lyrical content is good even if the beat is good i cant listen to it for long.. Honestly where are the good songs like 'Till' I Collapse' at these days?

To think this fool got a nod along the likes of Nas and the Roots, music, hip hop in particular has gone to hell.

    • JesseM

      "She got a big booty, so I call her big booty." Yeah, that definitely deserves a grammy nomination. Lyrical construction of a four year old, and it is being recognized as rap? GTFO 2 Chainz.

    • Loco

      Nas and Roots got nominations they being true to hip hop. That roots album in my opinion was a classic.


    A white man said, "Colored people are not allowed here." The black man turned around and stood up. He then said: "Listen sir....when I was born I was BLACK " "When I grew up I was BLACK, " "When I'm sick I'm BLACK, " "When I go in the sun I'm BLACK, " "When I'm cold I'm BLACK, " "When I die I'll be BLACK." "But you sir." "When you are born you're PINK". "When you grow up you're WHITE, " "When you're sick, you're GREEN, " "When you go in the sun you turn RED, " "When you're cold you turn BLUE, " "And when you die you turn PURPLE. "And you have the nerve to call me colored?" The black man then sat back down and the white man walked away..

      @jeanyiz, Hey fool! When a 'rapper' says things like "She got a big booty, so I call her big booty", he should not even be invited to the Grammys. I listened to 7 or 8 cuts from the albums, admittedly not the whole album, and it was weak, pure ignance from start to finish. It was mad predictable, about nothing but money, strippers, and trapping. 2 Chainz is only getting a nod because he's popular, he's trash as an artist.

      I have listened to thatalbum a couple of times actually, and it completely sucks. t's totally generic unoriginal, and apart from maybe 1 or 2 songs it isn't even fun. If I want to listen to some ignant rap, I'd bump Floackaveli or Chief Keef before even thinking about TRU Story. And I actually like 2Chainz, his features pn Mercy and CurrenSy and Big KRIT's last albums were pretty good, but this album flat out sucks.

    • Anonymous

      Solid as shit in terms of bangers, I will only give you that based on PREDICTABILITY of content from a man of his caliber; I'm like you, I have a hip hop dichotomy-- i like to get ignant, then i like to get intellectual, but based on content it is unfathomable that 2chains is getting a f*ckn grammy over GKMC, but then to only include Tru and Life is Good as even grammy worthy you seem a bit confused my man

    I give up. Tity Boi wins. To start with, he was just an irritation with shitty features with Drake and Officer Ricky and that sort of shit. But then he started trickling onto the tracks of decent artists like Young Jeezy, T.I. etc etc etc. He even managed to get on the new Papoose tape last week. Now the fucker has been nominated for album of the year. Mission: Kill Hip Hop. Return to base Agent 2chainz, mission accomplished....

    My question is why do people hate 2chainz? I respect you if you just don't like his music. But some people call him a sellout? why is it that so many blacks will only celebrate you as long as you dont get too much success? I'll tell you. because those of us who think that way are the REAL enemy. you allow someone to program the idea in your head that blacks can't be but so successful before they are considered a sell-out. it's like a tax bracket. you good until you pass a certain success level. then you are a sell-out.

      Your mentality kills hip hop. If I judge someone I'm automatically a rapper and expected to drop an album? So one can't have an opinion until "they bum ass selves" drop an album? Retarded. Please understand that not everyone can rap. Play your part boy

    2chainz's album was actually a really good album. The rapper 2chainz is never going to be considered one of the best rappers but he did make a really solid album. There has been a real LACK of great music lately and his album was actually a bright spot because his music is kind of different than what is already out there. I own every album that was nominated for Best Rap Album and every one of them EXCEPT Rick Ross' "God Forgives, I Don't" is a really good album. A lot of people get caught up in thinking that all Rap music has to be Conscious rap in order for it to be good rap music or that you have to be the most lyrically gifted rapper. 2chainz has a unique style/delivery and let's be honest a lot of these rappers are good rappers but they can also bore you to death and 2chainz isn't really boring.

    "That same clown is up for Record of the Year for that whiny ass of a song We're never ever getting back together" You're entitled to your opinion, but you do realize that song is a smash hit, off an album that sold a million in a week. Swift is an entertainer. Nas is an artist. He could very well win, but only if the grammy committee feels like the academy did when they gave Al Pacino the oscar for the subpar movie, Scent of a Woman.

      fuck both of yall, this aint no place for taylor swift's bitch ass

    • Chris Etrata

      I believe Taylor Swift is a great singer and has great songs most of the time but I feel with this song, she sold out by going pop. Sacrificed depth for just a hook you wish to stop hearing.

    Nas should win it finally.

    • Chris Etrata

      They actually care about quality at least 50% of the time. They did not nominate Justin Bieber for best album. Any other music awards show, Justin Bieber would win by far.

    • Vanessa Jack

      Yeah keep dreaming. The Grammys were never about quality, they're about popularity, and you know who's the hottest rapper right now.

  • RSX

    Y'all do realize all you have to do is have credits on an album to be able to vote on the Grammys. Have a commercial release of 6 or 12 tracks (6 for physical release, 12 for iTunes/Digital) and you can apply for voting rights. Fix it yourselves.

    ross and 2 chainz got a nomination because they POPular but the roots will win because of the music

  • da1

    I been stop having respect for the Grammys. The minute Taylor Swift won Album of the Year a few years back, I knew they just didn't care anymore. That same clown is up for Record of the Year for that whiny ass of a song We're never ever getting back together.WTF!! The grammys now is like what The Source Magazine was during the Benzino era. A once well repsected organization giving awards and honors to those who don't deserve it what so ever.

  • nuc

    grammys lost the direction (whatever they once had) if Nas doesnt walk away with Awards for his nods, somethings is terribly wrong with the system (which has been clear for years) not cause i'm a nas fan, just that his matierial put forth is way stronger lyrically, production wise, and far more mature than any other nods.

      Question what are the 3 wack songs on Life is good. Im clueless. Personally i thought it was flawless from begin to the end. Deluxe makes it that much more better. Even Summer on smash was hot for a party song. Most people i listen to music with actually agrees. I guess Daughters and Accendent murders are topics that have been used 100 times in hip hop. So like an idiot say there was no real concept. No offense to Anonymous 3 but your whole point makes no sense. Just like people hating on 2chains i bet like 75% of the people didn't even hear his Album. On another note Section 80(Kendricks Lamar's first Album) i believe came out late last year. If anything that should be rap album of the year. If not that LIG or maybe Undun. I prefer Nas' concept more tho so i choose LIG.

    • Anonymous

      Undun is a far superior album. Life is Good had 3 horrible tracks on it, no real concept, and nothing new about it. Also keep in mind Deluxe Editions do not count, and the Deluxe Edition makes LIG ALOT better. Oh and this is coming from someone who doesn't like most of the Roots' work and is a huge NaS fan.

    • TheTruth

      I agree; mostly. Nas - Life is Good deserves the award, but The Roots - Undun is a VERY close second and a fantastic album. If that win's I couldn't really blame The Grammy's. But if an other the besides those two win then, shame on them.

  • what!!!!

    Based on a tru story got the nod, how the fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.........

  • ETK

    who cares, it's not like he'll win... if however Drake wins, I will punch a wall

    Just so this is clear the other albums nominated are: Drake - Take Care Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Pt. 1 Nas - Life is Good The Roots - Undun Rick Ross - God Forgives, I Don't So, two trash albums, one Pop album, then three albums that all have valid arguments for album of the year. 50% isn't bad.

      Life is Good was given a mercy nomination. That thing sunk faster than the Titantic. Say what you will about 2 Chainz and Ross, but at least they catered to the demographic they were intended for.

    • ETK

      if GKMC didnt make it, do you really think Jesus Piece will.. lol

    • originalposter

      "Do you think Jesus Piece will be nominated for anything? even with its late release date?" Nah. The Roots album Undun was released December 2011 and is nominated for this years Grammy's. Jesus Piece will be eligible for for next year though. "i loved undun, F&L was good but not AOTY, kinda neutral to Life is Good" Couldn't agree more. I just believe that those albums at least can be argued for album of the year with valid points. There are definitely some albums from 2012 I would rather put up there.

  • asher1985

    props to tityboi man, first listened to this guy around 10 years ago, didn't really start paying attention to him until about a year ago though. to come out at almost the age of 40 and have this kind of success is really cool, and you can tell he's being humble about it. again props to 2 chainz

    How is that possible? Haven't heard any good song by 2 Chainz - EVER. This guy belongs in a garbage can.

  • Anonymous

    every fuckin year since 2006 these niggas from MTV and BET or whateva are pushing garbage hiphop... mainstream becomes the playground for retard rappers

  • d-nucks

    no lie, congrats to dude and all.....but really? grammys are all politics anyway, i mean some of their nominations are valid but alot of them are on some political bullshit.

    • Anonymous

      ALL of them are political. Life is Good is only there to appeal to old school fans and show respsect to a legend. Undun and F&L are there to appeal to a more underground crowd. The rest are just about what's popular. Out of all of those albums the only one that deserves a nomination is Undun.

    ""All I can say is that I'm honored. ...I didn't know. Honestly, I didn't know."" He doesn't know because he can't believe anyone actually listens to his bullshit. I'm not lieing here: I've never heard of this fucking fool until this article. I'm not kidding. Titty Boi? Oh FFS.

      im not a fan but to say you havent ever heard of him? do you live in a cave? have you ever been on this website?


    That album was garbage from beginning to end and yet still receives a GRAMMY nomination. Why does hip hop continue to be disrepected like this?
