Riff: 2 Chainz feat. Kanye West – “Birthday Song”

Jan 9, 2013

True to my religion, true everything I’m too different/So when I die, bury me next to two bitches

from Birthday Song lyrics by 2 Chainz

Everyday is a birthday according to 2 Chainz. And to be honest it’s hard not to jump on board – if not for the ridiculous hijinks alone. There’s no illusions here, him and West are all about living in excess, and anything beyond that is fool’s gold.
