Still riding high off of their blockbuster collaboration, Kanye West and 2 Chainz paid a visit to BET's 106 & Park yesterday. 2 Chainz came out first, and when asked about working with Kanye, he praised the Chicago native before introducing Ye to the stunned and delighted audience.
"First of all, I'd like to say it's a blessing to be on the track with all those guys at one time", he said. "Let me introduce the genius behind it. Because I'm tired of explaining it."
"First of all, I feel like Kanye is the best producer in the world", 2 Chainz continued. "The way that he describes things, the way that he sees things is different from anyone else. It's an honor. It's a pleasure to just be in the studio with him at the same time, and just clashing worlds. My background, my resume is filled with street credibility music, trap rap. He kind of brings his colors and images to what I'm doing. So he'll definitely be a part of my project, dropping August 14th, Based on a T.R.U. Story."
"We need more Kanyes. He really speaks how he feels. A lot of things that I want to say, I don't feel I'm in a position or have a right or platform to say it. It just feels good for him to have the mental capacity to know when to tap into urban America, when to cross over, when to take it overseas. He just has the ability to do so many things, and he's just including me in the equation. I just feel blessed, man."
Kanye didn't speak during his time on the show. As host Terrence J explained afterwards, Mr. West was solely there in support of 2 Chainz and didn't want to bring the spotlight on himself.
