2 Chainz Isn’t Pleased With His Name Placement on 2018 Governors Ball Lineup Flyer
Veteran rapper 2 Chainz had a great 2017, and he might just deserve more credit for it. Yesterday (Jan. 3), the Atlanta spitter went to Instagram, sharing his feelings about being slighted by how low he was placed on the 2018 Governors Ball lineup flyer.
The order of the artists on festival flyers such as these usually reflects the size of their popularity and fan base and how much time they'll have to perform. Bigger acts take up more space, and are placed higher. Someone as accomplished as 2 Chainz may really have an argument here; he has plenty of accolades and popularity.
"Whoever did this flyer need to do it over !!!," 2 Chainz angrily stated. "No capp !! I put in to much work to settle !! I ain't goin for the buddy buddy Shit this year give me miness!!! #prettygirlsliketrapmusicplatinum #4am platinum #gooddrankplatinum #vibes platinum #bigamountplatinum !! Numbers don't lie and neither do I !!!!"
It's likely that this situation will blow over, and 2 Chainz will show up and give the fans a great show. This result wouldn't be too different to the Hairweave Killer's previous issue with being left off of Eminem's song "Chloraseptic." Considering Eminem is a Gov Ball headliner, maybe 2 Chainz's cut verse will be unearthed.
All of this comes on the heels of 2 Chainz revealing that he was left off of another recent song. The track "Modern Slavery" off of Quavo and Travis Scott's Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho originally featured a 2 Chainz verse, according to his comment on a Swizz Beatz Instagram post. All is well, as Tity Boi remains one of the most well-respected rappers in the game.
