2 Chainz Head to Head With Nancy Grace
Heading into the New Year, I thought it would be beneficial to my Instagram browsing to delete some of the people I followed. I was at a standstill when I came across the almighty “hairweavekiller” better known as 2 Chainz. While I am indeed one of the most avid supporters of the rapper and his T.R.U movement, his posts leave practically nothing of interest to tag your friends about. Whether it’s 10 second snippets of his two daughters racing their toy cars in the mansion, or 2 Chainz sitting courtside at the Hawks game (this is a weekly occurrence), he’s not generating too much excitement from anything other than his music.
I remained loyal and proceeded to keep him in my queue, and boy, did I make the right decision. Tuesday night, the Atlanta based MC took to the ‘Gram to promote a segment regarding the legalization of marijuana on the Nancy Grace Show that broadcasts through the HLN network. Without hesitation, I flipped to the channel, and when I say this was the best T.V. I’ve seen in weeks, I absolutely mean it.
Having never heard of Nancy Grace before (or the HLN network for that matter) I couldn’t help but notice how blatantly condescending she was being toward 2 Chainz. Aside from consistently interrupting him and placing a hyperbolic emphasis on his rap moniker “TWO CHAAINZ,” she would repeatedly blurt out some of his lyrics that intended to paint a picture of the artist that was unjust…. To give you a glimpse of the lines she’d repeat, I’ve consolidated a mini list:
“Smoking California weed with California whores.” (“Oh, ‘True,’ I left that one out,” the host states).
“My Weed so loud everybody listen.”
“Good weed, bad bitch” (Grace placed particular emphasis on ‘bitch’).
“I’m so high like an addict.”
And the bashing didn’t end there. While putting up a video of what seems to be 2 Chainz smoking marijuana (ok it was def marijuana), with the utmost disdainful tone she proclaims, “Uhh everybody, that’s 2 Chainz Twitter account, that’s him smoking pot.” I mean it was complete comedy.
Surprisingly enough, the “I’m Different” rapper held his own when it came to explaining the positive effects on the economy, defending his perspective on how parents are ultimately responsible for governing their homes, and challenging the ludicrous assumptions of Nancy Grace. 2 Chainz-1, Nancy Grace-0. See for yourself.
