2 Chainz wanted out.
Not every day, but back in the infancy of his hip-hop career, 2 Chainz had a bit of a struggle.
The Pretty Girls Like Trap Music rapper stopped by Everyday Struggle to chat with Joe Budden, Akademiks and Nadeska about a variety of topics, with one story standing out about a deal he once had with Ludacris' label Disturbing the Peace. This was when he was a member of Playaz Circle.
"I just woke up and said, 'I don't want to do it,'" said Chainz. "They told me, 'you just can't leave like that.' He said some s**t about Puffy and Mase. And I said, 'this ain't no Puffy and Mase.' And then I had to find me a lawyer, and then I ended up getting out [of the deal]. I had to pay him $100k per album, and I think, some other little, like a point, which to me, I've made $100k so many times, it was a pretty good deal to get out of it."
Imagine had 2 Chainz not had the wherewithal to pressing the eject button on his record deal? Maybe he doesn't become the man we know and love today.
