Between G.O.O.D. Music features and his own solo career taking off, 2 Chainz has been making the most of his 2012. Now, the Atlanta rapper took over the reins at VIBE today as a guest editor.
In 2 Chainz's segment for VIBE, the Def Jam rapper listed his personal top five most influential rappers in the game. Making appearances on the list are the likes of E-40, Birdman, Too Short, Scarface and Chainz's "Mercy" collaborator Kanye West.
"I got this far from not listening to other niggas. But with that said these are the people in the game that I do pay attention to when they’re speaking. They always got some game to put me on to," he explained. "[E-40 is an] innovator. Always fun talking to E-40...I always listen when [Birdman] is talking. Weezy too for that matter...[Too Short] is game personified...[Kanye West], this guy is a musical genius...[Scarface is a] wise man. He’s seen a lot."
