“Man, I’ve been listening to some of you politicians and some of y’all n-ggas dumb as fuck, like stupid as fuck,” 2 Chainz said in a social media clip. He was responding to some politician’s commentary about the unfortunate murders of roughly 19 children & two adults at a Texas elementary school on Tuesday (May 24).

Do You Agree With 2 Chainz & His Stance On Politicians?
2 Chains disses politicians while bringing up a valid point and argument. There is the perception many people share about suits being equal to smarts.

He said to prevent what happened, have the back door locked,” Chainz directed at Ted Cruz. Read more of FM Hip-Hop’s featured articles today.
