Round 1: Rick Ross’ “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast)” vs. 2 Chainz feat. Drake, “No Lie”
Rick Ross comes out swinging, leading off with one of his signature hits — and one of the defining songs of all early-2010s hip-hop — in the blazing Teflon Don classic “B.M.F.” 2 Chainz responds with one of his own biggest in the Drake-featuring “No Lie,” calling it the first record he got “a plaque” from. Respectable return fire, but this was Rozay’s to lose.
WINNER: Rick Ross
Round 2: Rick Ross’ “Hustlin” vs. 2 Chainz’s “I’m Different”
Another core hit for Ross, taking it back to his Port of Miami debut album and breakthrough hit “Hustlin.” Chainz breaks out the microphone for his response, bringing the energy along with the piano plinks of his Based on a T.R.U. Story single “I’m Different.” Ross has the stronger song, but Chainz has the stronger performance.
Round 3: Lil Wayne feat. Rick Ross’ “John” vs. A$AP Rocky feat. 2 Chainz, Drake & Kendrick Lamar’s “F–kin’ Problems”
“I’m not a star, I’m a hustler,” Ross explains to intro his guest verse on Lil Wayne’s Carter IV single “John,” which borrows the hook from his own Teflon Donopener “I’m Not a Star.” But when it comes to playing hit features based on stellar originals, Chainz has an ace up his sleeve with the full a cappella verse from which his classic “F–kin’ Problems” chorus hook was taken, then segueing into the top 10 hit itself. Well-played.
WINNER: 2 Chainz
