In an interview with BBC Radio 1xtra, 2Chainz confirmed his rate of $100,000 to appear on other artists' tracks. "Who's gonna pay that for a verse? Your favorite rapper paid it" according to 2Chainz.
He justified this price with a detailed description of services rendered, here are the highlights:
"The thing is, when it comes to your video, I'm gonna change clothes twice. They're never gonna see that outfit again."
"I'm gonna give you bars. I'm gonna wear fancy glasses and a bunch of chains you've never seen. I mean, I can help you."
"You get me. You get charisma. You get girls that's gonna come to your video shoot 'cause they know I'ma be there. So this your chance to get in!"
And there's no talking down the rapper. "I'm not doin' no deals. I'm tellin' what I give you, for that number. These are the services I offer."
TIBS ADDITION: There are no quotes that top 2 Chainz' above, but a fun re-read with everyone at the office today was the interview I had with 2 Chainz before he was 2 Chainz. Playaz Circle talks with GWHH in '09.
