On MTV‘s first episode of their new docu-series called “This Is How I Made It”, 2 Chainz chats about his ten-year friendship with Lil Wayne. The Playaz Circle rapper, formerly known as Tity Boy, remembers hearing Weezy shout out his name on one of his singles called “Where You At” back in 2002: “Yeah Tity baby, put it in the air”. 2 Chainz then goes on to tell the story of how the “Duffle Bag Boy” collaboration came together.
“I’ve had a relationship with Lil Wayne for over 10 years now. Me and Wayne are like real peers, he liked my vibe from day one. I just remember being like ‘dude put me in a song’–that’s cool as hell. So when I got the ‘Duffle Bag Boy’ beat I was like, ‘I got an idea, I think I’ma put Wayne on this.’ Wayne was in Atlanta at the time. So I rolled up, gave him the CD and flew to Miami maybe two or three weeks later and I remember hearing, ‘If I don’t do nothing I’ma ball.’ I was like, you did this for me bro?”
