MTV has announced number 1 and 2 on their Hottest MCs list and it’s none other than 2 Chainz who takes the second spot. With a Gold debut album, hit singles and notable presence on other artists’ songs, Tity Boi deserves the spot.
“He goes from Tity Boi to 2 Chainz, basically reinventing himself,” MTV News’ Managing Editor Rebecca Thomas noted. “Suddenly, we find him not only as the honorary G.O.O.D. Music member, but then he put out B.O.A.T.S., and on that album are songs that carried 2012, from ‘Birthday Song’ to ‘I’m Different,’ to ‘No Lie.’ “
