The 10 Best Lines From G.O.O.D. Music's "Cruel Summer"

“Okay, now ketchup to my campaign/Coupe the color of mayonnaise” -2 Chainz

Song: Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz "Mercy"

“Simple, but hot” sums up 2 Chainz' catalog, a wordplay-heavy attack that makes you laugh and bow. Even with “Mercy” released months ago, the song stays at the top of the track listing, showcasing the lyrical skills of the G.O.O.D. Music affiliate.

On the outside, the line pumps Chainz' “campaign” to the top. While he balls hard with an all-white car, he leads the way to success. A comfortable ketchup/catch up pun and mayonnaise reference makes the line more fun. The line, thankfully, hides more, particularly a shout-out to songmate Kanye West. Fans may recall a line by 'Ye used to woo Jay-Z:

“Killin y'all niggas on that lyrical shit/Mayonnaise colored Benz, I push miracle whips”

Chainz manages to shout out the famous “Last Call” line and make it his own, paying homage to the label leader and setting his allegiance in the right direction. All hail Chainz for keeping classic Kanye alive and well.
