2 Chainz and Q-Tip Are Working on New Music Together
2 Chainz has worked with some of the biggest names in hip-hop history throughout his career, but he's about to add another veteran to his list. While sitting down for an interview with Hot 97, the Pretty Girls Like Trap Music rapper revealed the details of his recent studio session with Q-Tip, who he was once connected to on G.O.O.D. Music.
Around the 34-minute mark of the interview, Tity Boi says that he went over to the A Tribe Called Quest member's house earlier this week with hopes of getting him to work on his next project.
“I went over to Q-Tip[‘s house last night] and let him hear the Statik records ’cause I want him to be more of like a curator of my next project. I just respect what he has done,” 2 Chainz said. “I told him, imagine a trappin’ ass Midnight Marauders.”
The MC says that the two shared some creative differences during the session, as they have a different way of working when they're in the studio making music.
“He was over there chopping and I’m like, ‘listen, load up a beat, bruh! It gon’ take you longer to do whatever you doin’ than it take me to do me,'” 2 Chainz explained. "He was like, ‘I’m used to working with people that have’—and I understand that. But it don’t take all day to nothing over here, jack.”
Soon enough, Chainz and him got back into their session after Q-Tip disappeared for a minute, and the longtime producer was able to see the magic that they could create together when the Southern rapper started spitting.
“He went upstairs, came back [and I told him] ‘I want you to hear this before I leave.’ He was like, ‘bruh, these are real bars.’ I was like, ‘yeah, I know!'" the rapper exclaims.
We're not sure when Chainz may be planning on completing and releasing a new project with the help of Q-Tip, but he did mention that it will be “conceptual,” “well-thought out” and have “interactive marketing ideas.”
