  • 2 Chainz linked up with R&B singer Lloyd and New York rapper Ma$e for this poignant look back at his troubled career. Speaking on MTV's RapFix Live, Chainz acknowledged that the title may sound contradictory to some. "I guess the best way to describe it would be like a tattoo. But it would be a tattoo of a portrait of someone that passed away," he explained. "So you have that pain of getting the actual ink, the pain of having the actual portrait, but it's a beautiful piece of artwork."
