Fresh off tour and performing for a sold-out crowd at New York’s SOB’s, 2 Chainz (formerly known as Tity Boi) revealed to XXL that he parted ways with Ludacris’ DTP Records and is now signed to Def Jam. If you follow me on Twitter @donbleek88, you probably came across my week last week, saying “2 Chainz just signed to Def Jam.” I attended the concert last night and his set was shorter than expected. Raekwon was in the building and so were a lot of Def Jam execs. Below is what 2 Chainz told XXL:
“It’s the Real University, Two Gun Gang, Street Executives. It’s not DTP no more,” he says. “I’m actually behind [Ludacris], he’s still my homie. I just took another route as far as running my own company and bossing up. But on the other hand, I’m still working with him. He has an album coming out this year, as well. Matter of fact, we are label mates, now, which is crazy. So, yeah, that’ll be cool. I’m looking forward to that.”
Congrats to the homie 2 Chainz and much success in all your future endeavors.
