It only seemed like a matter of time before 2 Chainz, who has been everywhere lately, would announce his move to a major label. And in an interview with XXL, he confirmed that he has indeed signed with Def Jam Recordings. He’s officially moved on from his days on Ludacris’ Disturbing the Peace label, though that doesn’t mean there’s any bad blood between the two former business partners. Quite the contrary, actually, as 2 Chainz said the following:
“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.”
As HipHopDX reports, we can apparently expect to hear even more from the rapper formerly known as Tity Boi this year. He has plans to drop two albums worth of material in 2012. That should make Andrew Winistorfer happy.
