"MERCY" WINS, 2 CHAINZ PERFORMS AT THE 2012 SOUL TRAIN AWARDS

11/25/2012

"Mercy," the haunting, heavy collaborative hip-hop track featuring Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T, and Reservoir songwriter 2 Chainz, is officially the Best Hip-Hop Song of the Year, at least as far as the Soul Train set is concerned.

BET and Centric presented this year's installment of the Soul Train Awards in a ceremony that aired Sunday night, where "Mercy" beat other contenders "No Lie"--another Reservoir catalog hit--by 2 Chainz and Drake, "Lotus Flower Bomb" by Wale and Miguel, "Daughters" by Nas, and "Leave You Alone" by Young Jeezy and Ne-Yo for the 'Best Hip-Hop Song of the Year' prize.

In addition to being included in the "Mercy" win, 2 Chainz performed his own set during the Awards, rapping a cleaned-up medley of Based On A T.R.U. Story tracks "Birthday Song," "I'm Different," and "Ghetto Dreams" to an enraptured audience.  Chainz closed his set with one of his signature catchphrases, "Truuuuuuu!" before re-appearing in the show's finale with legendary songwriter and musician, Stevie Wonder.
