2 Chainz’s Best Guest Verses, Ranked

Must Read

According to the word on the streets, a Chainz verse will cost you over a hundred thousand US dollars. Whether a 2 Chainz verse should be worth that much is a different argument entirely, but the guys over at DJ Booth have a very good read on it. Go check it out.

The artist formerly known as Tity Boi went on a self-imposed hiatus, ditched Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace label, came back with a different persona, and has seamlessly carved a place for himself as one of raps elites, using the same retarded metaphoric punchlines rap fans love to hate but can’t get enough of. No matter how big of a hip-hop critic you are, There’s a Chainz verse out there for you to get loose to. From his show-stealing verse on G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer cut, Mercy, to Drakes “All Me,” and Travis Scott’s “3500” – 2 Chainz is one of hip hop’s wittiest rappers when it comes down to guest verses. The College Park rapper has managed to stay largely consistent without necessarily switching up his style. Let me just say, if you’re trying to make a strip club bounce, 2 Chainz is your guy.

The 40-year-old’s ever-growing catalog includes collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane, Pusha T, and even Justin Bieber. Before his new album “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” arrives at midnight (June 16), we’ve decided to take a look at 23 of his best guest verses of all time.

R. Kelly Ft. 2 Chainz “My Story”

Album: Black Panties
Producer: Nineteen85
Released: 2013

“My Story” is the first single from R. Kelly’s twelfth studio album “Black Panties”

Standout Lyric
“Velcro, I’m sticking to ithatin’, I’ve been a victim to it
Your conversation is sanitation, ain’t no hesitation when I finna do it
I stick it in (uh) switch it up and try to hit a friend (uh)
Live it up and count my dividends, roll, like cinnamon
Woah, big face Benjamin’s
As she lookin’ at me like ye’en ain’t nothin’ but a star
I looked at her like this ain’t nonthing but a car
If you ride with them you ain’t going that far
But if you ride with me, crib so big we can play hide-and-seek
You can confide to me, ride me like I ride the beat.”

David Banner Ft. 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne “Yao Ming”

Album: Sex, Drugs & Video Games
Producer: David Banner
Released: 2012

Named after retired Chinese Houston Rockets center, Yao Ming, 2 Chainz towers over David Banner and Lil Wayne with lines like, “I am so damn hot, I done scared the winter.”

Standout Lyric
“Uh, I’ve been pumpin’ pussy like gas nigga
Got my .44, you’ll get 8 like math nigga
Still use a shoe box for my stash nigga
Money so tall you gon’ need a giraffe with ya
Yeah, self esteem high like 26
You can catch me gettin’ high with like 20 bitches.”

Red Cafe Ft. Diddy, 2 Chainz & French Montana “Let It Go”

Album: Shake Down
Producer: Jahlil Beats
Released: 2011

Hate to admit it but Diddy had the best verse on this, I wonder who wrote it. 2 Chainz, in usual fashion, swoops in with distinctive lyricism.

Standout Lyric
“I still sleep with my scale
All I had for breakfast was an L
All I had for dinner was some good pussy
I got a package in the mail with some good Kushy
Bring your girl here, I might spoil her
Four door porsche with the spoiler
I keep killing pussy, call my lawyer
Make my girl Jackson like Latoya.”

DJ Drama Ft. Jeremih, 2 Chainz & Meek Mill “My Moment”

Album: Quality Street Music
Producer: T-Minus
Released: 2012

2 Chainz is not the person I want to hear on a motivational track if I’m being honest. Regardless, the ATL native managed to keep it a buck with his verse.

Standout Lyric
“When you start from the bottom you can see the top
So when you get to it, don’t let ’em see the spot
Next thing you know you lookin’ for a rent sign
Upper echelon, bitch we skip line.”

Chance The Rapper Ft. 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne “No Problem”

Album: Coloring Book
Producer: Bass Tracks
Released: 2016

On a song used by Chance The Rapper to shake down record labels trying to stop him, and Lil Wayne demanding the release of his long-awaited album “The Carter V.” Leave it to 2 Chainz to deviate from the song’s theme of self-realization to instead talk about n-ggas “gettin chased by their baby mommas” and running “shit like diarrhea.”

Standout Lyric
“I’m so high, Me and God dappin’, This is my blessin’, This is my passion, School of hard knocks, I took night classes.”

Fat Joe Ft. 2 Chainz “No Country For Old Men”

Album: N/A
Producer: Infrared
Released: 2012

2 Chainz kept his shenanigans on this to a minimum but his flow was right on the money. The single was inspired by Cormac McCarthy’s novel of the same name.

Standout Lyric
“28 grams in a ziplock, time to hit the block and make that bitch flip flop
Gucci flip floss with the polo socks
When your girl leave me she needs a…
2 gun game, one is 38,
Every time I do a verse, first bought the 8
My first job was in the trap, selling weight
Turn 1 to 2, 2 to 4 and 4 to 8.”

Young Jeezy Ft. 2 Chainz “Supafreak”

Album: Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition
Producer: D. Rich
Released: 2011

2 Chainz on a song about freakish white girls… What more do you want?

Standout Lyric
“Rick James, super freak
She got that wet-wet: now that’s a superleak
Tell your baby daddy that he’s super weak
Fucked your girl last night: it only took a wink
2 Chainz charm Cost 100 stacks
10,000 with my shirt off that’s 100 tats.”

Big Sean Ft. 2 Chainz “Keep It Gee”

Album: Finally Famous
Producer: Drumma Boy
Released: 2012

The secret to enjoying a 2 Chainz verse is to never try and make sense out of it because they usually don’t. Just sit back and wonder how he comes up with raps like: “I spell southside with an F that stand for foolishness. Err… I have no words

Standout Lyric
“10 Ben Franklins, nigga, that’s a G homie
Flash the pinky ring, baby you can ski on it
Put it in your uterus, U-Haul, I move the shit.”

Wale Ft. 2 Chainz, Rick Ross & Trey Songz “Bait (Remix)”

Album: Eleven One Eleven Theory
Producer: Tone P
Release Date: 2011

2 Chainz outshining Rick Ross on records happens way more often than people would like to admit, but that’s a conversation for another day.

Standout Lyric
“Closet the size of your apartment
I’m swagged up so don’t try me
Bank roll is my ID
When I pulled out she hopping in
Make your main girl my side piece.”

Jeezy Ft. Future & 2 Chainz “Magic City Monday”

Album: N/A
Producer: D-Rich
Release Date: 2016

A strip club joint and 2 Chainz go together like Amber Rose and shaved head. The song is named after the famous Atlanta strip club.

Standout Lyric
“Rest In Peace Nando, car full of ammo
Abracadabra, Magic, Orlando
Hop up out the bando, hop up out the Lambo
Got my Cuban links on, they gon’ need a passport.”

Wiz Khalifa Ft. 2 Chainz “It’s Nothin”

Album: O.N.I.F.C.
Producer: Drumma Boy
Release Date: 2012

2 Chainz knows how to flex on his haters like it’s nothing and he did just that on this.

Standout Lyric
“I mean all I want for lunch, is a blunt, and your girl
It ain’t nothin’ to me but it’s somethin’ to you
Count money like it’s somethin’ to do
Summer time, I’m like fuck the roof
Winter time, I’m in ‘Lo boots
And uh, it’s nothin’, I like being high because it’s a better view.”

Tyga Ft. 2 Chainz “Do My Dance”

Album: Well Done 3
Producer: David D.A. Doman
Released: 2012

“Do My Dance” is an uptempo strip bounce, which makes it ripe enough for 2 Chainz to deliver some of his trademark bars.

Standout Lyric
“She got her booty cheeks on my Louis sheets
She can do it on a pole, but can she do it on me
Her flexing ass, let me see you flex that ass
I don’t call I just text that ass and buy special bags
Python, all gold no ice on
Nothing but shaved pussy in my iPhone.”

Big K.R.I.T. Ft. 2 Chainz, 8Ball & MJG “Money On The Floor”

Album: Live From The Underground
Producer: Big K.R.I.T.
Release Date: 2011

One of the most 2 Chainz-Esque verses you’ll ever hear is on Big K.R.I.T.’s “Money On The Floor.”

Standout Lyric
“Chrome lips on the vehicle look like they blowing kisses
Reel them hoes in, it look like I’m going fishing
Okay this how I ride, two bad hoes inside
One ho say she ready, the other ho said she tired
I’mma drop this other ho off, me and the other ho we gon ride
All jokes aside I’m the get money poster child.”

Future Ft. Drake & 2 Chainz “100it Racks”

Album: Project E.T.
Producer: Southside
Released: 2016

2 Chainz bragging about his luxuries on records might easily be my favorite version of him.

Standout Lyric
“Hundred thousand bustin’ out the wrapper
Count it up ’til I get a callous
I don’t really talk to y’all rappers
Put codeine in a Snapple
Put codeine on a salad
Guess I’m on a codeine diet.”

DJ Scream Ft. 2 Chainz, Yo Gotti, Gucci Mane, Future & Stuey Rock “Shinin (Remix)”

Album: Holiday Season Vol. 4
Producer: Nard & B/DJ Spinz
Released: 2011

Totally under the radar but 2 Chainz dropped another stellar verse on this.

Standout Lyric
“One time cause I’m Shining
Two times for these diamonds
Three times for that threesome
Sneakers fresher than Easter
Shorty wet, like Katrina, I got sacks like a lineman
If your girl choke, on the dick I give your bitch the Heimlich
My music up and my window down.”

The Game Ft. 2 Chainz & Rick Ross “Ali Bomaye”

Album: Jesus Piece
Producer: Black Metaphor
Released: 2012

Once again, 2 Chainz outclasses Rick Ross on a song they both appear on.

Standout Lyric
“I’m in a class of my own, my teacher got fired
Money gettin’ long, pussy rate keep risin’
Versace outfit cost me 3,000
From the P houses, did it from the wee hours
Sellin’ that chicken; no lemon pepper, no sweet and sour
First you get the power, then you get respect
I’m gettin’ so much money I can buy your bitch.”

Drake Ft. 2 Chainz & Big Sean “All Me”

Album: Nothing Was The Same
Producer: Key Wayne
Released: 2013

The song that finally made a 2 Chainz verse acceptable and who better to do it than the culture Vulture himself. In the song, 2 Chainz brags about his d-ck setting off a metal detector.

Standout Lyric
“Money on my mind, you should think the same
J’s on, pinky ring—dogging these hoes, I need quarantine
In the same league, but we don’t ball the same
(Ah) She want all the fame, I hear that shit all the time
She said she love me, I said, “Baby girl, fall in line.”

Curren$y Ft. 2 Chainz “Capitol”

Album: Stoned Immaculate
Producer: The Innovatorz
Released: 2012

I wasn’t sure how a Curren$y and 2 Chainz connection would sound but this turned out really nice.

Standout Lyric
“You know I do it like I’m doing it for do
Watch the shoes, ostrich, you know what time it is like 2 watches
My reputation, detonation on destination
I separated, elevated: get salutation
I’m seldom seen in forest green foreign machine
Dirty south but the engine clean and that pussy clean
Criminal thing, a criminal mind
I got a pocket full of dead presidents, I’mma bring them alive.”

Kanye West Ft. Gucci Mane, Big Sean, Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz, Quavo, Travis Scott And Desiigner “Champions (Round & Round)”

Album: Cruel Winter
Producers: Kanye West, A-Trak, Lex Luger, Charlie Heat and Mike Dean
Release Date: 2016

Not as clever as his other G.O.O.D. Music verse but he managed some crazy lines on this. The song was premiered by Big Boy on Power 106.

Standout Lyric
“I took a nap in the pulpit
I never like how a suit fit
I got a pocket full of money
It got me walkin’ all slew-foot
I’m on my wave like a cruise ship
In that hoe mouth like a toothpick
Anyone get in my way
Nothin’ to say, I tote ’em choppas like pool sticks
I wear pajamas to Ruth’s Chris
Couldn’t walk a mile in my new kicks
I’m comin’ from the apartments
We never had our damn pool fixed”

Young Thug x 2 Chainz x Wiz Khalifa & PnB Rock “Gang Up”

Album: The Fate Of The Furious
Producers: The Agency & Invincible Beats
Released: 2017

“Gang Up” off the soundtrack to the Fate Of The Furious movie produced one of my favorite all-time 2 Chainz verses. His flow on this is immaculate.

Standout Lyric
“I’m a villain that’s winning
With precision, I’m killing
Represent the religion
Ended up independent
Took my car to the clinic
Let ’em check all the vitals
Middle finger to rivals
Michael Jackson, my idol
Still ducked in a pie hole
Talk to the plug, every day except Cinco de Mayo”

Nelly Ft. T.I. & 2 Chainz “Country Ass Nigga”

Album: O.E.M.O.
producer: Drumma Boy
Release Date: 2011

2 Chainz was still relatively unknown when this song dropped but he managed to top Nelly and you could also argue T.I.

No standout lyrics because the whole verse is a standout.

“A cuntry nigga, and I keep it street
All I smoke is strong
Straight section eight
I got socks on with my house shoes
I got my baby mama name tattooed
I got another bitch with another bitch
Mad cause I fucked up her hairdo (damn)
Hair weave killa
On a “wanted” poster
Dance on a white girl
Call it John Travolta
I’m a country nigga, I fuck her on the sofa
My whip white with the black top like Sammy Sosa
If you ain’t got no money
You better have hustle
See when I got some money
All I did was add muscle
Tity 2 Chainz, and the two’s never too much
Extension cord is when you put together 2 blunts.”

Travis Scott Ft. Future & 2 Chainz “3500”

Album: Rodeo
Producers: Allen Ritter, Mano, Metro Boomin, Mike Dean & Zaytoven
Released: 2015

2 Chainz considers his verse on this to be one of his best ever, and I find it hard to disagree.

Standout Lyric
“My bathtub the size of swimming pools
Backstroke to my children room
Maybach in the living room
I spent racks on these tennis shoes
Niggas know what I’m finna do
Time for me to put the mink up
Forgiattos on the Brinks truck
My favorite rapper drove a pink truck (Killa!)
I do shit that you dreamed of
I was born with a mean mug
I was born with some nappy hair
Drinkin’ breast milk out a lean cup.”

G.O.O.D. Music Ft. 2 Chainz “Mercy”

Album: Cruel Summer
Producer: Lifted
Released: 2012

Never in doubt. It took a minute for rap nerds to publicly admit to how dope this verse was because 2 Chainz was regarded as corny back then. Opinions became slightly more favorable after the Atlanta rapper followed his verse on “Mercy” with more noteworthy guest verses.

“OK, now ketchup to my campaign, coupe the color of mayonnaise
I’m drunk and high at the same time, drinkin’ champagne on the airplane
Spit rounds like the gun range, beat it up like Rampage
100 bands, cut your girl, now your girl need a band-aid
Grade A, A1, chain the color of Akon
Black diamonds, backpack rhymin’, co-signed by Louis Vuitton (Yup!)
Horsepower, horsepower, all this Polo on I got horsepower
Pound of this cost four thousand, I make it rain, she want more showers
Rain pourin’ (pourin’), all my cars is foreign (foreign)
All my broads is foreign (foreign) money tall like Jordan!”
