2012 has certainly been 2 Chainz year, and hip hop magazine The Source agrees. The rapper has been chosen as Man of the Year and graces the cover of the magazine.
In the cover story, 2 Chainz, formerly known as Tity Boy, discusses things like changing his name, and making it in the music industry. When asked about the industry, he referred to the experience as “a zoo”.
“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.”
With a successful mixtape and album, as well as commercials for Beats Audio and Adidas. He’s definitely looking like man of the year. Congratulations 2 Chainz!
