2 Chainz signs with Def Jam

It was only a matter of time until one of the rap game's most wanted free agents would find a label home. As XXL points out, 2 Chainz has officially parted ways with Disturbing Tha Peace and moved under the Def Jam umbrella. Don't get it twisted though, there is no love lost between the artist formerly known as Tity Boi and the DTP general Ludacris.

“It’s the Real University, Two Gun Gang, Street Executives. It’s not DTP no more,” he says. “I’m actually behind [Ludacris], he’s still my homie. I just took another route as far as running my own company and bossing up. But on the other hand, I’m still working with him. He has an album coming out this year, as well.”

2 Chainz will make an official statement on MTV’s RapFix Live tomorrow at 4 p.m.
