I'm Different

Album: Based On A T.R.U. Story (2012)
Charted: 27

Songfacts®:

  • Rapper Tauheed Epps formed the hip-hop duo Playaz Circle in 1997 with his high school friend Earl Conyers. While Conyers was known as Dolla Boy, Epps adopted "Tity Boi" as his stage name. Despite Epps' denials, critics and fans alike speculated the name "Tity Boi" was meant to be derogatory towards women. In early 2011, Epps decided to change his moniker to the more "family friendly" name of 2 Chainz. It also signified his second chance in music after being signed to DTP/Def Jam. This DJ Mustard produced cut finds him proclaiming that there are bigger differences to him now than the fact that he's changed his alias. However to some ears, 2 Chainz' generic boasts throughout his verses in which he proclaims his love of cars, girls, and riches contradict his claims to be "different."
