VIBE: So I know you’ve been asked this before but can you explain it for all the VIBE readers, how did you get the name Tity Boi?
2 Chainz: I want to explain this—I wish I could put this on a billboard. Tity Boi is not derogatory towards women, I didn’t make it up, I didn’t get it from a titty-sucking contest or anything like that. The name Tity Boi actually came from my big mama, from me being spoiled and an only child—breastfed. My mama called me Tity Boi, my dad called me Tity Man, my hood called me Tit so when we was trying to rap I had been going by Tit my whole life, Tit, Tity, Tity Man —it’s just like a country nickname —term for being an only child.
VIBE: So you had no choice?
2 Chainz: Yea, like my family calls me that, my dad calls me Tity Man every morning. He wakes me up like ‘Tity Man, the phone ringing’ like and that’s it.— I really like this dude. Read the rest here.
