Posted By on July 15, 2013

Atlanta rapper 2Chainz was recently sat down with BBC 1xtra  and discussed his price tag for a verse-100 grand.

I have features out there that I haven’t even heard yet,” Chainz revealed in an interview. “I have to make sure I don’t say the same thing twice. I don’t write raps, I don’t do any of that — people sit on my stuff and I know I have good lines. And I’ll be like, ‘I wonder if I used this line.’ And then I might not use it and then it’s like, this dude is sitting on my good line. It makes it seem like I don’t have good lines. I got plenty of lines, I’m not running out. Just tired of you guys waiting for that moment. … 100 grand. Let me stop, man, because 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 like, ‘Who’s gonna pay that full version.’ Your favorite rapper paid it. Don’t even worry about it.” (BBC 1xtra)

The rapper later went on to explain why he has such a price tag attached to a verse:

“But the thing is, look, I’m gonna come to your video and check it out. I’m gonna change clothes twice. They’re never going to see that outfit again. It’s going to be [high-end fashion]. It’s gonna be swag. I’m going to give you bars. I’m gonna wear fancy glasses and chains you’ve never seen [before]. I can help you. You get me. … This is what I embody. You get charisma. You get girls at the video shoot that come to your video shoot because they know I’m gonna be there so here’s your chance to get in. I’m telling you what I can give you. For that number, these are my services, this is what I offer.” (BBC 1xtra)
