Is 2 Chainz Serious? No, Actually, Is He Serious?

For the life of me, I can't even come close to telling whether 2 Chainz is serious or not. Like is this guy just pulling an elaborate long-con style troll or does he actually think he's good at rapping?

"Karate chop yo mama

Karate chop the car

Top off nigga…bow

Bow bow bow" - 2 Chainz

Look, I get that rappers aren't exactly known for profound commentary on the human condition or any of that shit. I also get that it's not easy to freestyle. But is it unrealistic to expect that someone who literally makes a living off or rap music can't, I don't know, rhyme coherently? Even for a few bars? Like I'm pretty sure Tity Boi (even bigger troll of a name) and every industry rep he's ever worked with has to be losing their shit laughing at everyone who buys his music or boosts his ratings or whatever.

On the other hand there are some pretty fucking stupid people in the world. It's not out of the realm of possibility that 2 Chainz is one of them. Some producer easily could have said to himself "Hmm, do I think that stupid people will buy recordings of some moron yelling on top of over-produced, generic beats? You're damn right I do!" Meanwhile 2 Chainz is too busy drinking, getting robbed, and just generally being an idiot to realize that he's not actually good. Probably thinks he the Hendrix of the new millennium.

What do you guys think? Is 2 Chainz the world's most successful troll? Or is he legitimately trying his hardest?
