Riff: 2 Chainz – “I’m Different”

Jan 9, 2013

Beat it up, beat it up, then I get some head/Well I might get some head, then I beat it up/I don’t give a fuck, switch it up, nigga live it up

from I'm Different lyrics by 2 Chainz

By no stretch of the imagination is 2 Chainz a lyrical scholar, but even then, as a professional, he should still adhere to some standard. “I’m Different” is a blatant contradiction because he’s not different. He’s like every other pop rapper out there whose perspective is stunted by tunnel vision.
