2 Chainz Explains Why He Doesn’t Write Any Of His Rhymes
(AllHipHop News) Rapper 2 Chainz does not write his lyrics down when recording a song.
The “I’m Different” hitmaker prefers to come up with his lyrics off the top of his head and pair them up with a few select beats producers present to him.
“I don’t like writing down anything,” he tells RollingStone.com. “I feel like I could waste a good idea on just listening to a track. I don’t want to hear 15 beats. I don’t want to waste my studio time listening to beats. When I come, I want to work. Load them up. I’m going to come off the top.”
He continues, “And out of the three (beats chosen by a producer), I hope one of them is something I can keep or keep going off of. That’s what I’m banking on. For the last couple years, every song has been like that.”
The only songs that he switches up his process for are ones that he is featured on with another artist.
“I have to get them (beforehand) so I can know what the f**k I’m going to rap about,” he continues. “I think most artists I work with know that I’m cuckoo like that.”
