2 Chainz Reveals Collaborations with Kanye West For Past Year

After a sold-out performance at S.O.B.’s in New York this past Monday, 2 Chainz is looking to dominate the rap game.

In an interview with MTV’s RapFix Live Wednesday, the confirmed Def Jam signee reveals that he has been collaborating with label co-star Kanye West.

“One thing that people may not know is that I’ve been working with Kanye West for about the last year,” one-half of the former rap duo Playaz Circle said. “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.”

The artist also known as Tity Boi is also preparing the release of his highly anticipated solo album, tentatively titled T.R.U. 2., (The Real University)and is looking to “shake up hip-hop” with the College Dropout rapper.

“It’s no secret that I came from the hustle background, from that trap kinda rap, 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.”

The Atlanta native is also grateful for his success and hopes to continue to grow as an artist. Maybe even rub off on West himself.

“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 said.
