2 Chainz confirmed in a new interview that he does indeed require a six-figure sum to appear on other artist’s tracks. Speaking with BBC Radio 1xtra, 2 Chainz confirmed the rate for his appearances. Kanye West previously stated that the Atlanta rapper’s guest verses were $100,000.
“Let me start, man, ’cause I know there’s people out here listening: Look, I’m enjoying life, okay? You would be doing the same thing. Don’t look down upon me,” said 2 Chainz. “[You might ask,] ‘Who’s gonna pay that for a verse?’ Your favorite rapper paid it. Don’t even worry about it.”
“The thing is, when it comes to your video, I’m gonna change clothes twice. They’re never gonna see that outfit again,” he said. “I’m gonna give you bars. I’m gonna wear fancy glasses and a bunch of chains you’ve never seen. I mean, I could help you.”
