2 Chainz, formally Tity Boi, confirmed that he signed with Def Jam in a recent interview with RapFixLive, and in addition he announced that he has been working with Kanye West for the past year.
On working with Kanye he said the following:
"One thing that people may not know is that I've been working with Kanye West for the past year," 2 Chainz announced. "We have records together, we have ideas that we're planning on releasing to the world real soon. I'm tryna get my 'N in Paris' swag up."
2 Chainz acknowledged that the two rappers seem very different, but he said they found common ground,
'"For the most part, when we started building our relationship, we found out we had more things in common than different from a musical standpoint," he shared, adding that similarities were found despite some differences. "It's no secret that I came from the hustle background, from that trap, and it's no secret that he's maybe more of a hipster swag, backpack kinda guy. So I think it'll be interesting when you just drop that in the pot, in the blender, and see the outcome and results of some of that."
"I'm one of those people that feel like you're never too old to learn new things and even bruh, he still can learn new things from the avenue and path that I come from," 2 Chainz added. "It'll be cool, we gonna shake up Hip Hop a little bit, shake up Rap a little bit. You see what I did on my own."
We'll have to wait and see what results from the two collaborating.
