Letter: Do not misrepresent the chains of 2 Chainz


To Karyn Hladik-Brown:

First of all, I appreciated your article ... about the 2 Chainz concert.

He truly is an underrated rapper, and it pleases me when people recognize greatness; however, there was one part of your article that I disagreed with.

You said “2 Chainz is not that great at personal branding — he wore three chains.”

While I understand that this was a small joke, I find it necessary to set the record straight. In his song “I’m Different,” he states “2 Chainz but I got me a few on.”

2 Chainz has never claimed to only have two tangible chains; rather, the names 2 Chainz symbolizes his second chance at the rap game. This is a common mistake, and I’m sure you meant no disrespect.
