Hot 97 caught up with the “Door Swangin” rhymer who revealed he is working on a collection featuring contributions from production wiz Statik Selektah and Hip Hop legend Q-Tip.
“The next project is going to be solid as well. It’s gonna be conceptual,” stated Chainz.
The Atlanta resident later added, “I went over to [Q-Tip‘s house] and let him hear the Statik records because I want him to be more of like a curator of my next project. I just respect what he has done,” said 2 Chainz. “I told him, imagine a trapping ass Midnight Marauders.”
As a member of A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip rapped and produced on the classic 1993 album Midnight Marauders as well as the group’s other projects.
Tribe’s 2016 gem We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service helped the collective set the Billboard 200 chart record for the longest span between #1 albums for a Hip Hop act.
