VIBE Helps 2 Chainz Sign Up For Online Dating

About me and who I’m looking for: I like psychological thrillers, things that make you think. I’m not a shy person when it comes to introducing myself. I don’t mind being out—it’s a part of my job description—but I don’t want to be out with my date drinking and shit. I want my girl to go to work so she won’t be bored, but I’ll still be a provider because that’s what I’m here for. I’m very vigilant in the bedroom. Dudes want their toes curled as well as females. I’m a very spiritual person. I believe in nature vs. nurture—being raised by my parents and being raised by the ‘hood. I have money, but I’m not flashy, so women seem to get that vibe right away. It talks, but it doesn’t talk for me. I have my own voice.

With his song-stealing presence, A-Town trap star 2 Chainz has experienced an unusual career renaissance, and charmed his way into the winner’s circle. Now, can he find a little computer love?

Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz admits to a sex résumé that could rival a gigolo’s. He lost his virginity at age 12 (to a ninth grader named Veronica) and scored his first threesome two weeks later after a game of spin the bottle. “It’s hard to arouse me now because I’ve seen a lot,” says the 30-something bachelor. Naturally, he’s skeptical about soliciting single ladies today by creating a Match.com* profile. He hasn’t dated in years. “Confident women wouldn’t get someone off the Internet,” he gripes. “Usually, the dudes who were lame in high school are going wild as adults. I played basketball, got all the cheerleaders. I’m comfortable telling girls, ‘No.’”

Nowadays when the long-limbed shit-talker capers onstage, he could care less about scrapbooking groupies’ drawers. It’s a focused formula for a rapper who’s seen how easily opportunities can fizzle. High-octane passion raps about ’hood schemes and self-worth have earned 2 Chainz daps from the likes of Kanye West, T.I. (“Spend It Remix”) and Nicki Minaj (“Beez in the Trap”). And Drake snagged him for this summer’s Club Paradise tour. But before balling in the video for his sinister, trap-happy anthem “Spend It,” the artist once called Tity Boy was the star baller of North Clayton High School, where every test score was over a C. A juvie stint for selling cocaine and marijuana killed off his pro dreams. “Every time you get money it’s a rush,” he remembers. “I wouldn’t let my phone ring more than once. I was afraid the person would call another dealer.”

Despite his Devil-knocking past, when 2 Chainz fills out Match.com’s religion section, his halo fl ashes. “I want somebody with some type of faith, so she can pray with me,” he says of his preferred mate. “I had to invest in a lot straight out of my pocket. The only way you can do that is by having faith. Back then, I was praying for another chance.” Before his 2011 mixtape T.R.U. REALigion rebirthed his career, Tauheed Epps was on a seesaw as one-half of Playaz Circle, signed to Ludacris’ Disturbing tha Peace imprint. After a post-prison standstill, Chainz hit the jackpot with the Weezy-assisted “Duffle Bag Boys,” but struggled to connect a complementary single. Four years and nine solo mixtapes later, the sunglass junkie, whose Def Jam debut, Based on a T.R.U. Story, dropped August 14, has found love in a hopeful place. Digital romance, however, he’ll skip that. “We’re at a time where people only text how they feel. They’re too scared to be themselves in person,” says 2 Chainz. “That’s what makes people content with Match.com—we’re only showing what we want to show. It’s a little bit creepy.” —Tracy Garraud (@trayhova)

Cardi B Defends "Twerk" Video Against Conservative

Cardi B teamed up with the City Girls for their sexy "Twerk" video, in which the Miami and Bronx women twerked along the beautiful beaches with other buxom black and brown babes.

Some loved the videos, others not so much. One naysayer conservative Washington, D.C. video columnist took to Twitter to challenge Cardi b and other liberal women on how the provocative video will help during the #MeToo movement.

In the Era of #meToo how exactly does this empower women? Leftists, @iamcardib , feel free to chime in. THX .. pic.twitter.com/59fyDxrYAz

Cardi B saw the tweet and responded to Hamill directly telling the former Trump national diversity coalition advisor that what a woman wears has no bearing on how much respect she should be given.

"It says to women that I can wear and not wear whatever I want. do whatever I want and that NO still means," the "I Like It" rapper tweeted. "So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks."


Cardi B has been making ground in the political arena after commenting on the U.S. partial shutdown. However, since then the "Bodak Yellow" artist admits she's received negativity ever since. She insists she's not trying to change anyone's political preferrance.

All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days.Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is fuckin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens.

Woman Denies Chris Brown's Involvement In Reported Rape

A woman has come forward to clear Chris Brown's name after he was reportedly detained in Paris on a rape accusation.

On Monday (Jan. 21) a woman by name of Kim Ford shared several messages on her Instagram story, denying claims that Brown and his security guard abused an unidentified woman. Ford says "nothing happened" but she was hit by a man who wasn't the "Undecided" singer. Ford also denies being the one who accused the artist of sexual assault.

"I am not the person who said Chris Brown raped them," she said. "I was there but nothing happened and the man who hit me had no relation to Chris Brown."

Earlier reports claimed an unidentified woman alleges that she met Brown at a Parisian night club in rue de Ponthieu, near the Champs-Elysées, on the night of Jan. 15 into Jan. 16, before heading back to his room at the La Mandarin Oriental.

Brown was recently spotted taking in the festivities of Paris Fashion Week, and smooching rumored flame, Ammika Harris. The “Undecided” singer shared video from dance rehearsal in the French city over the weekend.

VIBE has reached to Ford about her comments.

He has not commented on the reported rape allegation.

See Ford's claims below.

Not Sicko Mode: Nick Cannon Says Travis Scott Isn't For The Culture

Nick Cannon takes great issue with Travis Scott performing at the Super Bowl but says for Big Boi, it's okay.

During a sitdown with TMZ's Raquel Harper, the host of Masked Singer said "I'm Kaepernick all day," but said Scott doesn't have enough "cultural equity" to perform during Super Bowl LIII halftime show.

"To me, I call it cultural equity. So we're not mad at Big Boi for performing at the Super Bowl. He's for the people," 38-year-old Cannon explained. "[For Scott] he has to walk gingerly."

Harper followed up and questioned Cannon, to which he further explained having a child with Kylie Jenner also reduced his "cultural equity."

"It's more about truly having integrity in your music and in your art form. The people you choose to interact with. The people you choose to procreate with. That decision wasn't for the culture. But we not mad at you," Cannon said.

Harper reminded Cannon he's dated a few white women in his past, to which Cannon then looked into the camera and shouted: "I love white women."

The New England Patriots will face off against the Los Angeles Rams, Sunday, Feb. 3 for Super Bowl LIII. Maroon 5 along with Travis Scott and Big Boi are set to take the stage at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Out of respect for Colin Kaepernick, several artists declined to perform including Rihanna, Cardi B and JAY-Z who reportedly tried to talk Scott out of it.

After Scott agreed to perform, reports revealed he spoke with Kaepernick about the decision. Kaepernick's longtime girlfriend Nessa Diab took to social media to blast Scott and say it was a lie.
