    @ Real Talk. Your arguments are making myself as well as alot of people on this discussion chains head hurt. Here is some biblical scripture explain what alot of these people are trying to say. You sound like you are on a Mission Against GOD. Why are you so stuck on making God and the Satan fake? The phrase god of this world (or god of this age) indicates that Satan is the major influence on the ideals, opinions, goals, hopes and views of the majority of people. His influence also encompasses the worlds philosophies, education, and commerce. The thoughts, ideas, speculations and false religions of the world are under his control and have sprung from his lies and deceptions. Satan is also called the "prince of the power of the air" in Ephesians 2:2. He is the "ruler of this world" in John 12:31. These titles and many more signify Satans capabilities. To say, for example, that Satan is the "prince of the power of the air" is to signify that in some way he rules over the world and the people in it. This is not to say that he rules the world completely; God is still sovereign. But it does mean that God, in His infinite wisdom, has allowed Satan to operate in this world within the boundaries God has set for him. When the Bible says Satan has power over the world, we must remember that God has given him domain over unbelievers only. Believers are no longer under the rule of Satan (Colossians 1:13). Unbelievers, on the other hand, are caught "in the snare of the devil" (2 Timothy 2:26), lie in the "power of the evil one" (1 John 5:19), and are in bondage to Satan (Ephesians 2:2).

  • Numero Uno

    @Real talk. I was reading all your posts man and you seem like you are really trying to prove a point but I don't think most people on here are feeling you. Is Satan paying you to lick hi a**. You are trying to hard to sound "open minded"

    • Numero Uno

      @Real Talk. Your arguments are so ass backwards but to each his own. It's cool man. maybe you were just created by aliens from outerspace like the History Channel wants to believe. Or maybe you evolved from Swamp water like Darwin said. It would explain your lack of actual intelligence.As for me...I was created in the image of God. I'm not God...but he made me.Go ahead and deny your creator. When you see him you can explain your terrible attempt at logic.You are a SPIRITUAL BEING.Not just a flesh and blood person....Don't say I didn't tell you!!!!!

    • Numero Uno

      @Real Talk. I have to disagree. You are trying to compare the afterlife and the spiritual realm to the ideas you have built your mental construct around here on earth. See people like you tend to over simplify things based upon what you perceive to be "real" and tangible. There is a spiritual battle for your soul and mine and somewhere along the line....you drank the Koolaid of deception. I'm sorry bro but your time spent on you tube watching videos on why God doesn't exist was a waste of time. You still have no valid argument. You are just finding ways to refute what other people believe in. So where do you think you came from? Do you not believeyou were created by a being more intelligent than yourself? I refuse to follow your "logic". Your sense of everything is based ont he here and now. There is another realm!!! The Spirit realm!!!!You can't see it or touch it but it's there!!

    • Real Talk

      Because you keep satan alive. The boogyman your talking about keeps the myth alive. When people say it's the devil, "2 Chainz is blowing up" is stupid. As a kid i believed in Santa Clause, to only find out it was my parents. Look how easily as a child I was convinced that if I behaved I will be rewarded with gifts. Apply that to an adult, if you behave, in the afterlife you will be rewarded, if you miss behave you will spend an eternity being tortured. Grow up, and don't live in fear of a fairytale. If you were born in china you would worship Buddha, if you were born in Iraq or middle eastern country you will worship Allah, Born in america most likely you will worship God. What do these things all have in common? It keeps you grounded, it keeps you in check. Jail is the hell, cause you can actually spend the rest of your life in there. Freedom is our heaven.

  • Kramer

    I really dont understand why hes so popular. Hes not talented...and hes up for a grammy?! wtf

  • jay

    no hate, but I constantly see this dude everywhere, commercials, remixes, my mom even asked me "who is this rapper sellin' addidas? " a result of over-saturation

  • Anonymous

    Oh by the way he sold 500,000 to retailers not consumers. He's still not gold in my book.

    • Anonymous

      They shipped 500,000 units in increments. All justified by consumer demand in X territory. No store wants overstocked inventory so when it's time to order CD's for the shelf they have a printout of what 2Chainz is selling and BUY them (store charts not Billboard). And for the last 2 weeks of the year people will buy for gifts or spend gift money on his CD in their store. And they're so confident they already purchased them, those are ones in the stores now plus we don't know what he did last week. Same applies for Kendrick being gold. What you are saying has no bearing on the reality of it.

      I'm 16 so no I don't. And @Anonymous I understand that the stores bought 500,000, however consumers did not. I thought I made that clear. Yes, they 500,000 were sold, but only 400,000 or so were to people who wanted to hear it.

    • Anonymous

      Still being sold. Same thing happens with the food and clothing you buy. Company makes it, sends/SELLS to distributor, distributor SELLS to stores, stores sell to YOU.

    • DJboutit

      Remember back in the day when selling a mil was gold. Artist like Dr Dre Snoop 2pc Biggie Jay Z Nas & Bone Thugs did this before this fool even started listening to rap lol

    Really he's thanking God? His music is as Godless as it gets, I assumed he was an athiest.

    • Sinatra Heist

      it is not GOD these rappers worship. Their god is Satan. They are thanking satan. That is who they pray to. You cannot worhip Money,booty, and drugs and then thank GOD for all those things.

    @CamelStock i 100% agree

  • me

    this is sad & proves that hiphop is shit smh

  • CamelStock

    This proves the devil relly does run the music business. If you have a positive message and are somewhat talented these days it is soooo hard to get a record deal. If you suck and are a puppet that can be dressed up and told what moves to make, you not only get a record deal but they let financially prosper while deystoying the minds of children and young adults. Any grown person with any sense knows it's all bulls*** but then again we aren't eh ones buying this trash. Tity Boi starts dressing like a homosexual and making brainless music and all a sudden he is a household name. The DEVIL is so close you can feel him BREATHING down our necks. This ain't a game folks. Keep laughing....it's not even funny .

    • Real Talk

      @Dyno look at your post and really read it again. So Al Green, Marvin Gaye, even the christian bands(dont know the names) are ran by the devil? When they use the phrase"sold my soul" means you sold your freedom for fame. Look how celebrities live their lives. Yea they have all the luxury in the world cars, mansions, women, money... but have no freedom. Cant walk out the house without TMZ or cameras following them. So in return alienate themselves. Nikki is getting paid, and is an entertainer, she entertains people for a living. Like an Act, Kanye West entertains people for a living. These people are no different then the athletes you see on tv. Look at Kobe Bryant, he gets 100 plus million contract to play basketball. Really think about that, playing basketball deserves millions of dollars??? really its a business, If they pay kobe 100mill, how much money is the owners making off of him. If you pay an actor 20 mill, how much money is the owner making off of them. Once you become an entertainer you become a slave to your fame.. Everywhere you go someone is going to want a picture, or for you to sign something. Plus now you need security because people want to rob you.. You say im brainwashed, but I actually make sense. Saying things like "Blood Contracts' really? and Im the one brainwashed? "Satan Himself " is running the music business. Than what about Al Green, Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye, Adele, U2, Coldplay, there all positive artist with positive messages. Are they ran by the devil? so when my child sings "Twinkle Little Star" she is possessed by the devil? come on man. "He was the #1 musician in heaven and when he fell he took all that musical ability with him. " really? so my niece plays the flute for her band class, now she is controlled by the Devil because she plays an instrument? Come on man, open your mind..

    • Dyno Matchbox

      A)The world is not going to end Dec 21st B) it is true what people say about the music business. It is run by Satan himself. He was the #1 musician in heaven and when he fell he took all that musical ability with him. To make it in the music business these days, you have to at some point commit yourself to his cause. Artists are forced to sign BLOOD COntracts.Most artists can't handle the pressure for very long but some of the more successful artists have managed to hang in there. Artists like Nikki Manage,Kanye West, Brittney Spears are under heavy MK Ultra mind control. There are very huge artists out there who have not point black just came out and said...they sold their souls. Yet....all you athiests/plain idiots are still giving them the benefit of the doubt. THEY ARE TELLING IT TO YOUR FACE AND YOU ARE STILL DEFENDING THEM!!!! Now who is really Brainwashed???

    • Real Talk

      You remind me of the mom off of the movie "Waterboy." "THATS THE DEVIL" lol Look man all Im trying to get across is, be your own man, walk your own path, and open your mind to the bullshit society has fed you. No one has came to me and said the Devil isnt real, are you kidding me, everyone believes in that shit, I had to figure out the answers on my own. watch this "http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshh9NL8e9hI07p8TX32"and this is not what made me come to this conclusion, but let this thought enter your mind, and slowly pull closer, don't rush shit. Slowly unfold the history of mankind. Know your history of why myths are created.... The world has so many people in it, that we need some sort of control and program to keep us from total chaos. Imagine a world with no rules, no sort of justice. Were told if we kill, will spend an eternity in hell, but if you are a christian, and get reborn your forgiven, GTFOH

    • Real Talk

      @Camel Stock oh yea, if so worried about the Devil, why would a rapper be something your interested in. Its a rapper not Jesus, look at Nas, smokes weed, talks about slanging, guns etc... Look at Lupe Fiasco earlier songs, there are references to gun talk, weed, and liquor consumption. Oh yea and the amount of "Niggas" "FUCK" "BITCH" " HOES' "MONEY" "SMOKING" terms used in a entire album is crazy, listen to J.Cole debut, then listen to Kendrick Debut, tell me how many times u hear the word nigga, bitch, fuck, hoe, weed reference. The reason y i single them out, is because their looked at as being positive role models, even commons albums have the same amount of profanity. Like I said, its not the Devil, it is the humans who are at fault. Raise your kids right, and you should be ok in life.

    • gamma ray

      You couldn't be more wrong lil homey but god bless you anyways. maybe your eyes will open up and you will stop trying to rationalize things the way you do. Satan is the author of confusion and he is out to deceive you as well as myself. i am not saying I am any better than you brother i'm just saying you need to open your mind and heart. Some people have been feeding you some bull**** trying to say there is no devil....

    • Kramer

      @Real Talk Ive seen the devil. Hes real.

    • Real Talk

      your simple minded, So do you watch movies at all? What do you do for entertainment? Every rated R movie or PG13 movie can corrupt a childs mind, not only music. Also commercials, cartoons, most off all how the child is raised by their parents. 2 Chainz music has not changed since the start, same brainless punchlines, but he makes catchy songs. To say that the "Devil Runs Shit" is fucking lame, is there a hidden agenda behind the people who market this music to young kids with the intentions to fuck up their minds? Maybe, but to say that the "Devil" is the one doing it, is a joke. Humans created evil, humans fucked this entire world up, not the devil. Greed and Power homie, get in where you fit in. Don't be weak minded, the greeks believed in Zeus and Hades, do they really exist? Is Zeus with his lightening bolt looking down on us, how about you educate yourself, look up the "4 main reasons myths were created" enlighten your mind, and maybe you'll free yourself from this washed up mind set they molded you into. Fukc the DEVIL!!! hahaha nobody is scared..

    • gamma ray

      @Real Talk....then there are always simpletons like you. it even says int he bible that the devils greatest trick is to make you believe he doesn't exist. i don't think anybody is shaking in their boots. Dude was just saying how the devil run s***

    • Anonymous

      He only sold 500,000 to retailers, not consumers. Game is an average MC who had every single person in the music industry on is album so that's probably why that did DJ Khaled numbers. Also people are probably tired of him talking all the time. Wu-Tang is releasing independently, therefore has poor promotion. They are also outdated.

  • triple og kush

    NOOOOOO!!!!!! How did this happen? This dude is terrible. The labels are pushing this dude. He is so terrible. How do you make a song about "i'm different" talking about the same stuff that makes you like every other rapper???????Uh the world is coming to an end by the fact he sold more than 50,000 records. Why couldn't that dude in CT just go after these dudes who suck soooooooooooooooooobad. Trinidad blah blah blah dude too. What the hell????????
