2 Chainz, E-40, and Lil Wayne all have one thing in common: a propensity for the unexpected pun or literal allusion. While E-40 remains the most fluid of the bunch, and Lil Wayne the most tangential in a lyrical sense, 2 Chainz is arguably the most self-deprecating of the three, even though the designer wears tell a different story altogether.
When 2 Chainz speaks of an exclusively “Polo” collection of boxer shorts, it’s being said in a deliberate fashion to convey a certain rap persona. The same goes for E-40 and the manner in which he presents himself as a Plutonian myth, or Weezy in the odd defiance he displays in non-sports-related interviews. With all that said, Rap or Go to the League was the perfect meeting spot for such mannerisms to emerge victorious, once again.
