For over a decade, 2 Chainz has been signed to DTP Records, but the name may be throwing people off. Until recently, 2 Chainz was known as Tity Boi. A background artist for many years, 2 Chainz gained fame in 2007 with the "Duffle Bag Boy" single, featuring Lil Wayne, as one half of the Playaz Circle.
While he has released two successful albums with Playaz Circle under the DTP label, 2 Chainz has gone solo. 2 Chainz said he has nothing but love for Ludacris, Chaka Zulu, and the DTP team. He also said he has no issues with Def Jam. But, when it comes to his own projects, he wants to have full control.
Even though 2 Chainz plans to release his album through his own label, DTP will still be involved. 2 Chainz is still heavily involved in the ongoings of DTP. Recently, Ludacris asked him to do some A&R work for his Ludaversal album. 2 Chainz said he deals with a lot of producers, who would definitely be interested in working with Ludacris. The artist formerly known as Tity Boi went on to say he delas with many rising producers.
His T.R.U. REALigion mixtape will be released on November 1.
