In response to 2 Chainz claiming that he dominated the 2012 hip-hop song "Mercy," Big Sean reveals calling his fellow artist in the recent "The Rap Pack" podcast yesterday, April 14.

In an Instagram post last April 9, 2 Chainz posted the cover art for the all-star collaborative track edited to have a caption above it that read, "Everyone BODIED this track but who had the best verse...?" followed by a thinking face emoji.

The answer to the question, however, was simple in the post's caption: "No disrespect but I kilt all dem boys."

Radio presenter and media personality Charlamagne Tha God commented: "I didn't know this was ever up for debate." However, Miami-based hip-hop spinner DJ E-Feezy begged to differ, saying, "You my ni**a for LIFE, but... (Big) Sean word play was insane."

On the latest episode of the podcast hosted by Carl Chery, Trent Clark, and Jon Tanners, Big Sean said he "immediately called him [2 Chainze] like, 'What the f**k you talkin' about bro?" In the interview, he mentioned that 2 Chainz responded that the IG post was not aimed at him, but about "the whole game." Big Sean then clarified that it's not how it seemed to him.

Big Sean also defended his part in the single, saying that as far as "Mercy" goes, he was the first one to do his verse. The 32-year-old rapper said that he freestyled his part being provided only the beat for the song. Sean even said that he "did it without trying" and that Kanye West "loved it so much."

Sean added that Tity Boi himself didn't have objections and that he knew. He also said that he already did several songs with 2 Chainz, such as "K.O," "Big Bank," and "All Me." He concluded the segment by calling 2 Chainz his "brother," and they were kidding around.

"Mercy" was the 2012 collab led by Kanye West and featured Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz. It was the lead single in Kanye West's compilation album "Cruel Summer." "Mercy" reached number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped both the Hot R&B/ Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs chart, earning quadruple platinum certification in the US last 2016 for record sales of four million copies.

In 2017, Complex named 2 Chainz's part in "Mercy" as his best verse, and the rapper's latest Instagram post seems to agree. Of course, other artists featured on the track also praised their works in the legendary collaboration.

In June 2012, two months after the track's release, Pusha T commented on his verse having the "most intricate lines." In response to host Peter Rosenberg's question as to "who stole Mercy" in his Hot 97 radio show, Pusha T further described his work as his "rap thing" and "that was my style of rap."

Pusha T, however, noted that when they performed the hit, he saw the people "spaz for his verse."

"But, I mean, just for what I like doing it, it's all me," Pusha T added.
