2 Chainz, Rick Ross and 2012’s Other Unexpected Sex Symbols


Is it hot in here? No longer are sex symbols relegated to six packs and chiseled features; swag comes in all shapes and packages nowadays. From 2 Chainz to Rick Ross, we present some of the most unexpected hotties we’re currently checking for in hip-hop. —Sowmya Krishnamurthy (@SowmyaK)

2 Chainz

Maybe it was the name, but as Tity Boi, he barely registered on our radars. Once the rapper reincarnated himself into “2 Chainz” and dropped boasts about being a “weave killa,” we couldn’t resist this Southern charmer. Tall, funny and always down for some retail therapy (He does own a $400 belt, after all); 2 Chainz is the perfect package.
