— — — With his high-profile appearances alongside Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music camp, many have speculated whether or not Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz is officially signed to West’s imprint. In an interview with Complex, 2 Chainz shared the details regarding his relationship with Kanye and the G.O.O.D. Music family.
“I’m not officially signed, paperwork-wise, to G.O.O.D. Music. But I have a great rapport with ‘Ye. He called me before Watch the Throne came out,” 2 Chainz said. “I’m an only child. I’ve got trust issues. So I don’t have a best friend, a brother, sister–nothing. Stuff was happening in my life that I couldn’t tell nobody. I didn’t have anybody in my life that I could tell, like, ‘Ye just called me.'”
“I’ve talked to ‘Ye 1,000 times about trying to make this situation work for the both of us, so it won’t feel like anyone is getting used or anything,” he continued. “I’m in a position in life where I like talking about things like that. I came from a situation with DTP, being under Luda, where I got a phobia. Sometimes when an artist signs another artist, they’re so worried about themselves. And with ‘Ye, he helps everybody.”
