2 Chainz Collaborates With Diplo & PSY (Of "Gangnam Style" Fame)

Diplo links 2 Chainz up with PSY for a collaboration.

It may seem odd to pair 2 Chainz with PSY (of "Gangnam Style" fame), but Diplo reportedly thought it would be a good idea. 2 Chainz and PSY were both highly marketable artists in 2012 but come from different genres and styles, making this an unlikely duo for a collaboration.

However, they do have some things in common. Both had some success in 2012. On his end, 2 Chainz continued to explode onto the scene almost as a new artist after changing his name. In 2012, he appeared as a high profile guest on several projects and released his own debut as 2 Chainz with Based on a T.R.U. Story. Meanwhile, PSY was also creating a buzz for himself with "Gangnam Style," a widely popular music video. 

Diplo, who reportedly connected Chainz and PSY, posted the news on his Twitter feed

Little else is known about the collaboration.

    To all of the naysayers, I guess they don't know that Psy is a rapper - and a VERY good one. I would challenge those who claim to be hiphop fans to check out Psy's hardcore stuff...

    The track is called "No Future" and it details the future music careers of the artists.

    And this is why 2 chainz will not have longevity in the rap game. Gimmicks & trends only work for so long. That PSY dude is gonna be long forgotten this time next year. When it all boils down, its gonna be the real artist who become legend and make money oof a long period of time. Not those who lookin for that fast buck. If thats what he tryin to do then mo power to him. Chainz aint a terrible rapper like a lot of ppl say he is. He got some slick lines here and there if u listen, but i just think he can become a whole lot more than what he is...

    Shit meets shitter... PSY makes 2 Chainz look like Jay-Z. If Chainz has any sense, he'll tap PSY, along with Birdman, Soulja Boy, Chief Keef, Detail, Kreayshawn and V-Nasty, for his sophomore. That way he will seem amazing in comparison.
