While the Chris Brown-Rihanna kiss was perhaps the VMAs' most tweeted event, Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz' performance was definitely the most bleeped.
2 Chainz may be the new guy in the rap game, but the lanky dread-head towered over the set and captivated the Staples Center crowd from the get-go.
"Cut the top off, call it Amber Rose," Chainz rapped in "Yuck," referencing Wiz Khalifa's once bald-headed, now crop-topped and very pregnant fiancee.
Lil Wayne, a.k.a. Tunechi, backed up Chainz during the track, then took center stage as the DJ cut off "Yuck" and played his new release, "No Worries."
Wayne jumped up and down, shirtless and wearing no sunglasses for once, just tearing thorough the song. Even his boy 2 Chainz got in on the act.
Chainz began to hype up the Young Money / Cash Money boss up by accentuating Weezy's bars with persistent instructions to the crowd to "Turn up."
They obliged. Fortunately, those in attendance could actually hear the song; TV audiences may have found it hard to follow Wayne's censored lyrics.
Can't say that's a big surprise, though. This is Lil Wayne here. Dude even began his verse: "Tunechi up in this bitch, everybody should be worried."
