Let’s be honest, 2 Chainz is not exactly reinventing the lyrics game. Even his most-quoted (?) line “Coupe the color of Mayonaisse” is basically a dumbed down version of Kanye‘s “I push Miracle Whips” line from several years previous. Yet sometimes dumbing down is the sincerest form of dumbing out and even Black Thought evidently enjoys shouting out “Black diamonds #APARTHEID” every once in a while. Which is why a thread that started yesterday on the Okayplayer boards with the question: “anyone else got 2Chainz Tourettes?” has had us dying a thousand deaths ever since. Here are a few of the choicest 2Chainz quotables; phrases you may find yourself yelling in inappropriate situations–on a date, at the office, on a playground surrounded by impressionable young children–for no good reason (it’s not clear yet why 2 Chainz rhymes effect the neural mechanisms involved in impulse control this way, but we got the OKP med-techs looking into it). Read on to see if you exhibit the symptoms of 2CTS (2 Chainz Tourette’s Syndrome)–it could be vital, life-saving information for you or someone you love. And if nothing else this thread introduced me to this amazing 2Chainz spoof (after the jump) which is like a 2Chainz Tourette’s greatest hits compilation.
“I AM SO HIGH: #ATTIC…I AM SO HIGH LIKE A ADDICT”
“YOU THE REALEST N**GA BREATHIN, IF I HOLD MY BREATH“
“TALM BOUT: CALL TYRONE/ YOU NEED TO CALL TIESHA / NO MORE SHOPPIN SPREES OR SMOKIN FYA REEFA”
“PULL UP ON THE SCENE / WITH MY CEILING MISSING”
“I BE! LAUGHIN! TO THE! BANK! ALL YOU DO IS GIGGLE!”
