2 Chainz Exposes How Much He Charges Artists For A Feature
According to the "I'm Different" rapper, he charges $100,000 just for a feature.
"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."
However, 2 Chainz doesn't JUST bring a few verses to the table. According to him, there are a lot of pros that come along with a feature from him.
"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."
