2 Chainz has had quite a year which includes earning a Grammy Award nomination for “Rap Album of the Year” for his album Based on a T.R.U. Story.
In an interview with DJ Drama on Shade45, the 2 Chainz formerly known as Tity Boi reacted to his nomination news.
“I can’t say, ‘I told you so,'” admitted Chainz. “All I can say is that I’m honored. …I didn’t know. Honestly, I didn’t know.”
2 Chainz quickly gave respect to some other artists he felt most benefited his career this year.
“I definitely texted the big homie [Kanye West], I told ‘Ye that I appreciated him giving me the opportunity to get on ‘Mercy,’ because that song was huge for me. And the homie Drake, me and him collaborated on ‘No Lie, ‘ that’s already platinum. It’s a few people I feel assisted my campaign that I wanted to tell I appreciate on the way up.”
