Nardwuar the Human Serviette’s latest subject is 2 Chainz, and it’s as funny and as informative as you should expect. Nardwuar gifted the Atlanta rapper some Tom Lehrer records. Lehrer actually granted 2 Necklaces permission to use one of his samples on “Dope Peddler,” off of the just released Based On A T.R.U. Story for the price of a couple of autographed copies of the new album.
“Yes I enjoy real estate. I own four properties,” revealed 2 Chainz. “I brought my mom a house last Mother’s Day. I just recently paid off my current house, my mortgage, so I’ll be looking for some more properties real soon.”
Dos Necklaces also spoke on picking the proper tenant, avoiding pork and beef, loving seafood and respecting Tupac Shakur. He even refused the gift of a four-finger ring (“I been to jail for this before,” he said), since that didn’t work out too well at an NYC airport. But Nardwaur, Grand Puba wasn’t on that Brand Nubian record (“Punks Jump Up To Get Beatdown”), you handed 2 Chainz though.
2 Chainz’s debut album, Based On A T.R.U. Story, is in stores right now. Watch Nardwuar and the “Riot” rapper’s convo down below.
