’12 Worst Singles: #5 2 Chainz x Kanye West “Birthday Song”

Birthday’s come once a year, but 2 Chainz’s hit “Birthday Song” won’t go away. Outside of the gentleman’s club, the track is a grating listen. Chainz opens his verse with the flat line “She got a big booty, so I call her ‘Big Booty'”. Matters are made worse with the ridiculous chorus, “When I die, bury me inside the Gucci store/When I die, bury me inside the Louie store.” Kanye eventually shows up to the party, but fails to leave a lasting impression. Waking up early on your born day just isn’t what it used to be.

    “I say no”

  • IF YOU ASK ME

    this little series you complained and complained about being shafted by mr carter when his site debued is a REALITY SHOW and you should stop.

    lets face it

    you aint a rapper, you aint a dj

    you arent even that witty

    just a bitch IMO

    INSTEAD OF MAKING HISTORY you are just trying to create an atmosphere of ego centric shit talking

    GOOD LUCK WITH THAT NUCKA

  • SHAUT BUS SHORTY

    YES DEY SHOULD, SO YOU CAN SEE HOW FAKE THEY ARE JUST LIKE DEY RAP’S.

  • IF YOU ASK ME

    macklemore should be on your twitter 100

  • Rob Thomas

    Should blog owners have their own segmant talking about what he thinks is the truth? I guess THEY cant even stay in the backround and play their part.

  • No Way Hozay

    The Truth: Should 40 something bloggers be doing youtube videos asking stupid questions about other people

  • SHAUT BUS SHORTY

    NO ELMO, BUT Elliott Wilson a ‘POWER BOTTOM’ ??? AIN’T TRY’N 2 READ HIM BUT , he looks really suspect. SMH !!!!!!!

  • Word

    Only the ones that actually have interesting lives. And if they need the buzz, sure. These type of shows garner ratings. Love and Hip Hop, Basketball Wives, same shit. Game got his show and ppl watch. Ppl love Jones and his Chick. Shawty Lo is a cornball tho, that’s the one fail.

    I see nothing wrong with this for certain rappers. Not all rappers should do it tho.

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    “Should Rappers Do Reality Shows?”…Your boy William L. Roberts should do that but nothing about him is real on the other hand.

  • IF YOU ASK ME

    macklemore should have a reality show

  • acidrap

    Yeah, so people can see how fake they are.bout 10% of this industry are the real deal.Niggaz like French Montana,ross,future,waka..aint.

  • Devante

    No.. So much respect is lost in the process.

    This is a good look for Joe because his music is personal and he been putting his life out there on the net.His career is having a 2nd wind mainstream so this is a great look for him

    Other than that I don’t need to see most rappers on TV fucking up their image, but it pays and ppl need money in the industry

    Reblogged this on The Music Business Revisionist.

  • D Twice

    I ain’t gonna lie this the first time I’ve heard about the Shawty Lo one and I’m itching to check out the freak show.

  • TRUTH

    Just cause he’s 40 he can’t talk about hip hop…..I HATE YOU AGE DRIVEN MUTHAUFUCKAS…HE’S GOT MORE RIGHT TO SPEAK HIPHOP ON YOUTUBE THEN ANY OF YOU DUMB FUCKS

  • Da Business

    To answer the question, yes.

    It’s a opportunity to gain more exposure. W/ some1 like Joe Budden it can help, simply bcuz he has

    always been an open book and true heads appreciate that about him. The fact that millions tune in to

    watch weekly, should work wonders for his career. He has alway put out solid work but, he never had

    the backing to reach ppl outside of his core base. This is a gr8 move on his part.

    The reason that it didn’t pan out for say Game, Jimmy, & Scrappy… 1) musically Jimmy & Scrappy

    aren’t relevant and b) Game’s show was wack. BTW, for all the praises that “Jesus Piece” got, shit

    was subpar @ best. Joe won’t get to were T.I. is but, it help him… If he continues to come w/ that heat.

  • Booby Boi

    “i say no”

  • http://Twitter EarlJohnson

    Elliot Wilson needs a new face. I hate lookin at that niggas old face.

  • Yeezus Christ

    ya this song was fucking horrible

  • Devante

    I thought I was the only who felt this songs was annoying more then catchy

  • Dai

    How is this classified as one of the worst singles of the year if it helped to push his album to more attention like a single is suppose to do? Even if the lyrics was not to normal standards, as a single it made people listen to his album to see what he had to offer beyond this .

  • dfuh

    how can you say this is one of the worst singles but have the album as one of the best???

    • B.Dot

      @dfuhJ if this was 2003, I’d put Black Album up on any top 10 list. But “Change Clothes would have to go!

  • HOVA

    You’ve got to be kidding me. This is one of the top 10 worst singles this year?

  • CJF

    thank god B.Dot knows bad rap/hi-hop/music .. the opening of the song says it all!

  • GreenBeitz

    ok so, i see you included a non biased decision on the list..

  • tucq

    U crazy. This song was knockin.

    I like it cuz its true….who doesn’t want a big booty gurl 4 their birthday??? Lighten up, niggaz.

  • LuxuryRap

    Of course bdot wrote this post. Of course.

  • http://jadrianww.wordpress.com jadrianww

    Yea only B. Dot could write this. Anything catchy is terrible to grandpa brian

  • CREE8

    Might not be the best single to you, but definitely THE BEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR!!!!

  • jebus

    How the fuck
    Do you have BOATS at #8 for best albums but this on worst singles, you guys legit suck

  • GreenBeitz

    theres a difference betweens “singles” and “albums” people, certain singles people may have not liked if u dont like/respect their opinion shouldnt be checking for it..

  • Rob Thomas

    Apparently you havent gone to the clubs/Atlanta or anywhere in the south. Play this record and see what happens!

  • ronnie coleman

    B.DOT- LIGHTEN UP LIKE SAMMY SOSA

  • Chronic

    This being a on any “worst” list is stupid. It might be a stupid song but it bangs

  • mrholloway

    WOW. B. Dot is a certified idiot. Keep listening to that wack ass NY rap…in your earphones. I need someone to train this niggas ears to recognize good music.

  • https://twitter.com/P0is0nedKoolA @p0is0nedkoola

    Must have really hurt B. Dot to go against someone Jay Z affiliated. This is such a “let’s make sure we have a single for the album” song that it makes me vomit. It’s like the “power ballad” in rock. Something that is created to assure the record company the radio will play at least one cut from the album they just invested money in.

    Terrible song, terrible beat, I was just waiting for Thugnificent to jump on the track

    @p0is0nedkoola
    Lester Bangs of Hip Hop
    Let’s see how B.Dot over exaggerates a Roc Nation artist to make up for this post

  • tucq

    U crazy. This song was knockin!!!

    I like it cuz its true….who doesn’t want a big booty gurl 4 their birthday??? Lighten up, niggaz.

    “Ya’ll been togther 10 years u deserve a minage”

    Worst song??? Y’all better get off that crack!

  • tucq

    U THE REALEST NIGGA BREATHIN IF I HOLD MY BREATH

    No song with lyrics like that can be the worst of the year. And ‘Ye was killin it, too

  • twitty

    FUK OUTTA HHERE.

  • mike

    You niggas are bugging

  • King E

    Tbh. it’s all opinion based so I really can’t get mad at B.Dot, I like the song, and he doesn’t really care for it. Life goes on…

  • realfan

    @ B. Dot,
    The fact the you don’t think change clothes is on point concerns majority of this site.

  • Good Guy Greg

    B.Dot – you’z a hater. hahaha
