Uncle 2 Chainz called into DJ Drama’s Shade45 satellite radio show and during their chat 2 Chainz discussed his debut album scoring a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album and where he is at with its follow-up.
On the Based On A True Story being getting the Grammy nod:
“B.O.A.T.S. album nominated for a Grammy. I can’t say I told you so or none of that. All I can say is I’m honored. I didn’t know…When the nominations came out I definitely texted the big homie [Kanye]. I told him I appreciate him giving me the opportunity to get on ‘Mercy.’ Cause that song is huge for me. And of course the homey Drake, me and him collaborated on the ‘No Lie’ and that’s already platinum.”
On the status of his sophomore album:
“We gone continue pushing the envelope, be looking out. My next project, I’m more than probably like three songs in that I’m definitely confident in. I’m just continuing to work.”
