The reign of Rozay is over. After Rick Ross snatched The Source’s “Man Of The Year” cover every year since its inception, 2 Chainz takes the mantle in 2012. 

It’s hard to make a case against Tity Two Necklaces in 2012. Not since Lil Wayne in the mid-00s has a rapper been more prolific. Your rap album was not complete unless you’ve had a record with 2 Chainz. His solo debut, Based On A T.R.U. Story,  cracked Billboard charts at #1 and was featured heavy on G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer. 

“Those who haven’t been through that struggle don’t mind going to the zoo to pet the animals. They don’t wanna live in the zoo, but they don’t mind coming through,” 2 Chainz said in a clip.  “I’m someone who can show you around in a cool way where you don’t have to worry about getting eaten up.”

Check out the cover below as well as some behind the scenes footage from the shoot.
