2 Chainz Responds To Ludacris' Comments About Profiting From Him

2 Chainz reacts to Ludacris' public announcement that Luda still gets paid off of his former DTP artist.

Earlier this month, Ludacris revealed during an interview that he receives a percentage of the profits from 2 Chainz's solo projects, adding that he still collaborated with Chainz and that he was proud of him.

While 2 Chainz didn't take offense to the statements, it appears that some around him did.

"I mean it didn't bother me, but I think it bothered people around me," said 2 Chainz in an interview with Power 105.1's Breakfast Club.

2 Chainz admitted that he had to pay money to leave Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace label, where he record as Tity Boi from 2002-2010. "For the most part, people probably want me to say or do something negative, so I don't. Truth of the matter is, I been wanting to leave the label, when I left, I guess they knew or had some type of vision that I wasn't gonna stop there, because I was turnt up when I left and I told them, so yeah I had to pay to leave.:

2 Chainz said the deal will work in his favor. "I don't even know who else is on the roster of DTP, but the amount of money that I paid them is not gonna balance out my trajectory."

2 Chainz then specified that he paid $100,000 to get off the label, and that, ultimately, his experience on DTP was a learning experience. "I learned a lot from the previous situation I was in. It is what it is. I learned it a long time ago when dealing with that situation that there's really no such thing as loyalty out here."

In the end, Chainz holds no ill will towards Luda. "For me, I don't have anything negative to say. ...Actually, [Ludacris] was the first person to give me a bank account. I didn't even have a bank account. I just had shoeboxes of money."

During his time on DTP, Chainz released two albums as a member of Playaz Circle, 2007's Supply & Demand and 2009's Flight 360: The Takeoff.

  • Gucci The Realist

    Guci Mane realest rapper outthere: - this nigga throws bitches out his car - shoot niggas dead - beat niggas up. Gucci aint no fantasy nigga like: - mobb deep never sold drugs; - nas escobar lol nigga only had a ticket for parking his car wrong - 2pac never commited a crime before he became a rapper. - Game talks on his records about the life of his brother. His brother said that Game is no gangsta. Thats the reason of the beef between them; - Ice-T never was a O.G. or Copkiller but in fact he is a TV Cop; - Ice Cube was never a gangbanger but was bullied as a kid. - Eminem's image is fake and created by Interscope to sell records. Before 1997 Eminem didnt had white hair or was talking about that he was a whitetrash rapper. - Young Jeezy never was BMF; - Lil Wayne never was a blood although he was abused by Birdman as a child. The fakeness has to stop! The only real rapper is GUCCI MANE!

    • Ron Simmon

      He's lying? About 100 G's? How in the world was 2 Chainz considered to be worth that much back then? He wasn't. And if it was more, who paid it? Yall so quick to call someone a liar that you don't add it up yourselves.
