Exclusive: 2 Chainz and Future Talk Collaborative Project, Pros & Cons of Record Deals & More

While Future has the backing of a major label -- Epic Records -- and 2 Chainz is in talks of signing on the dotted line by early next year, both rappers still hustle as if it's themselves against the world.


Exclusive:2 Chainz and Future Talk Upcoming Projects and Touring

Future is focused on "patience" and creating "songs [that] translate into residuals," while working on his debut effort "Pluto" (Jan 31.) 2 Chainz is talking money with record execs while promoting his DJ Drama-hosted "Gangsta Grillz" mixtape "T.R.U. REALigion." "Eventually I'm going to entertain a deal, especially if it makes sense, especially if it's in the mills [milions]… in the m's," 2 Chainz tells The Juice.

"Come over to Epic," Future tells 2 Chainz. "We could get some more checks together. People be begging for the album," he says before both laughing off comparisons. "I be in the bathroom. Ni**a riding up on me, 'Tony Montana.' I say 'Ni** that ain't me fool," 2 Chainz jokes.

2 Chainz and Future say a collaborative album isn't far-fetched but only if they get paid for it. "We do got [to] get money together. There never been a situation between us. I fuck with his campaign," 2 Chainz tells The Juice. "It's a lot of money for us to get, I just feel like, he may feel like me as in as far as [if] we do it, it got to make money and make sense. We did a record together and we sold. That was like an appetizer. We might have to shoot a video for it."

"But to get us together on a whole album it's gonna make sense for us to get a lot of money for it," Future says, co-signing 2 Chainz.
