An artist's placement on a music festival's lineup announcement flyer is crucial. Most prospective attendees will be introduced to any given lineup via Twitter or Instagram, meaning everything from how far down the flyer an artist's name appears to which font the designer selected can have ramifications. For 2 Chainz, his placement on the Governors Ball 2018 flyer represents the perfect example of what not to do.
"Whoever did this flyer need to do it over !!!" Chainz said on Instagram Wednesday. "No capp !! I put in to much work to settle !! I ain't goin for the buddy buddy shit this year give me miness!!! [sic]" The platinum numbers, Chainz added, do not lie.
Though Chainz certainly makes a pretty inarguable point here, he's at least in excellent company on line 8 of the Governors Ball flyer. Chainz is joined by Margo Price, Japandroids, Vic Mensa, Third Eye Blind, and Kelela. Not bad at all.
With last year's Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, Chainz took his distinctive approach to full-lengths to new heights atop production from FKi 1st, Mike Will Made-It, Murda Beatz, Pharrell, and more. The 16-track album was widely regarded as the best album yet in the already stacked Chainz catalog and landed on multiple 2017 year-end lists.
