Ludacris Confirms Getting Paid From 2 Chainz' "Based On A T.R.U. Story" & "B.O.A.T.S. II"

Ludacris elaborates on role as "profit partner" with 2 Chainz, says he received a check for 2 Chainz' last studio album.

Prior to 2 Chainz’ current success, the rapper was one of many artists signed to Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace (DTP) label as a member of Playaz Circle. While 2 Chainz, who went by the Tity Boi moniker during his DTP days, has left the Ludacris-led label behind, according to Ludacris the two artists still have a working relationship with one another.

2 Chainz was one of a handful of artists discussed during Ludacris’ appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club this week. Ludacris went on to express his pride in 2 Chainz and revealed that on top of working with the Based On A T.R.U. Story rapper occasionally, he also receives a percentage of the profits from Chainz’ solo projects.

"I'm extremely proud of him, I'm extremely happy, he works extremely hard, he deserves everything that he gets…We still work together in different capacities at all times,” Luda revealed. “I'm still a profit partner at the end of the day. I just got a check for my album and his.”

Last year, it was reported that 2 Chainz would even assist Ludacris on his Ludaversal album by taking on the role of A&R, picking and choosing beats for the project. As of now, it’s unclear what specific role 2 Chainz will play on Ludacris’ eighth studio album.

Another former DTP artist to be brought up during Ludacris’ interview was Chicago rapper Shawnna. The female emcee appeared on a number of songs with Ludacris including “What’s Your Fantasy” and “Stand Up” and reportedly left the label with no warning.

“I don’t know what happened to Shawnna,” said the rapper. “I’m just keeping it real with that. We was recording, I was in mid-album and I hear on the internet that Shawnna is signed to T-Pain. And I have not talked to Shawnna since.”

    "You can get a private jet for as low as 2 million dollars" More like $3-8 million (chump change for Luda no doubt). Larger jets can set you back anywhere from $17-45 million.

    HOW CAN ANYBODY THINK THAT 2 CHAINZ IS GHOSTWRITING FOR LUDA? I THINK THEY ARE BOTH VERY TALENTED LYRICIST, BUT SERIOUSLY? CHAINZ BEST EFFORT MIGHT END UP ON THE RED LIGHT DISTRICT ALBUM, GHOSTWRITERS ALWAYS SAVE THE BEST LINES FOR THEMSELVES, IF 2 CHAINZ HAD EVER GHOSTWROTE FOR ANYBODY, BE SURE THAT HE WOULD RATHER OFFER HIS THROWAWAY VERSES OR UNUSED SONGS THAN GIVING AWAY HIS BEST THAT COULD BE USED FOR HIS OWN HIT.

    "Nate Dogg is still a better artist than Drake will ever be" Comparing an artist who carries songs to an artist who jumped on hooks would be like comparing Denzel Washington to Allen Payne. Nate had some great hooks, but he didn't manage his money right, and it's not anyone's responsibility to bail his greedy family out.

    • Chem

      So you are actually saying that Nate Dogg did nothing but hooks? Then what about his albums? Check yo self before you wreck yo self..

    • Anonymous

      Nah, Drake is on Kevin Hart status. He has to build longevity to reach Denzel.

    "if anything it makes him look like a boss" All it means is he's collecting bird crumbs from a former artist. A boss wouldn't need to tell people that. That shouldn't be put out there like that.

    "I seriously doubt that if you have your own private jet like Luda you are broke or desperate" He doesn't have a private jet. Stop it.

      "ja rule is on house arrest hes not aloud to leave his home let alone the city, state, or country" Bullshit nigga. Ja Rule is everywhere and everything at once. He is hard thuggin within us all

    • Rap Fan

      Yeah that was my comment about the jet. If you watched the entire interview he says he owns a jet and that fuel is expensive. So either he is stupid or just lied to millions of people. I dunno you decide

      ja rule is on house arrest hes not aloud to leave his home let alone the city, state, or country

    • Anony

      I heard Ja Rule owns a whole airport full of private jets somewhere in NYC that take him anywhere he wants in the world or when he needs to go to an area of the world that needs thug love or some real ass nigga hood shit to go on. Ja Rule is respected in every slum, ghetto, hood, project, blighted area, public squalor, run-down neighborhood, shanty town, skid row, tenement housing in the world. You can't buy that kinda respect nigga, you earn that shit.

    • City Boi

      You can get a private jet for as low as 2 million dollars. Luda has 65 million so who knows. A HondaJet is only 5 million.

    is people that dont know shit about the art form of music that always think a artist is better then another cause he has more money smfh ...

  • Anonymous

    What's the point of telling people you're making some bread off 2 Chainz? I realize Luda's rap career is in the toilet, not to mention his acting sucks, but you already have your millions. No need making yourself look broke and desperate.

    • Anonymous

      how does that make him look broke? if anything it makes him look like a boss if hes still getting paid even though he never really put this nigga out and he moved on to a different label situation

    • Rap Fan

      I seriously doubt that if you have your own private jet like Luda you are broke or desperate. However, I think that it was in bad taste to bring it up.

    "drake a wanna be nate dogg" Last time I checked Drake was a headliner. Nate was a background crooner who died broke.

    • Anonymous

      Nate Dogg is still a better artist than Drake will ever be , and really you can't measure someones talent by how much money he make, and you know Nate died broke beacuse he was sick and none of his fake ,rich friends like Dr.Dre or Snoop Dogg helped him paid his medical bills, which is f*cked up... RIP NATE...
