"Better music career: T-PAIN or 2 CHAINZ?"


  

          

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-Pain_discography

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2_Chainz_discography

T-Pain is obviously the better singer but who's the better rapper? better producer? better hits? features? hooks? solo albums?

Writing, producing, everything. Even as a Rapper, dude can SPIT. Dope flow, stays in pocket, presence, etc.

T-Pain OWNED hooks for a minute.

2 Chainz is better at being 2 Chainz than Pain. And he has way more Trap/hood bangers for sure. I'd rather listen to a 2 Chainz project from start to back, but Pain has plenty gems that didn't hit radio like "Nothin" and "Put it down."

It's actually a random comparison. I'd compare Chainz to an Akon or eeeeven Nate Dogg before Chainz. And would compare Jeezy or Gucci to Chainz before Pain.

both you and menph say they're in 2 different lanes but I feel that 2 chainz took t-pain's spot in mainstream rap, especially with features/hooks.

for were all sung..and in autotune...already way diff from Chainz. Chainz isn't on neeeeeeeeearly as many hooks as Pain, and the hooks he's on are mainly the same exact 65 BPM trap type songs. Nothing like a "Low" for Flo-Rida...or a "Kiss kiss" with T-Pain....or a slow grind track like "Put it down" that was on Pain's solo album.

In response to Reply # 9


  

          

But my point is, we can pretty much write the T-Pain book at this point I think. We know how the story ends. 2 Chainz may still have a great album in him for all we know (probably unlikely, but you get my point).

However, if your question is who, up to this point, has the better catalog, Tity 2 Necklace by a longshot IMO. But I never fucked with T-Pain to begin with.

that put alotta artists to shame. The beat for "Buy You A Drank" alone >>> 2 Chainz' career.
Then take into account shit like "Sounds Bad" and other joints from the Epiphany
album or stuff from the Thr33 Ringz joint. "Tallahassee Love" where he was
rapping>>>> 2Chainz rapping... so yeah. It really ain't no contest. He's rapped
a few times actually.

to a slow beat.

And Pain's flow on "Nothin" >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Chainz flow on "I'm different" even though he was funny as hell and had a super catchy line on it.

Their only commonality is that they're both black major-label artists from the South who wear dredlocs and achieved massive popularity on urban and pop radio.
