2 Chainz stays fresh as hell in his everyday life — ya know, just in case the Feds are watching. So you can only imagine what the rapper will do when he makes a special appearance at Sunday’s 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
During a special episode of “RapFix Live” from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn — where the awards show will take place in just a few days — MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway announced Wednesday (August 21) that 2 Chainz will be making a special VMA appearance. What the “No Lie” MC will actually be doing during the big show is anyone’s guess, but judging from his history with MTV, you know it’s going to be good.
Deuce shocked the VMA crowd last year when he brought his buddy Lil Wayne out to perform “Yuck” and Tunechi’s own hit single “No Worries.” 2 Chainz bopped up and down the stage, twisting his wrist in the air, while Wayne rode his skateboard and dove into the crowd, making for quite a show.
Since last year’s VMAs, Chainz has seen his star rise. He’s been featured on tracks with Fall Out Boy, The-Dream and Beyoncé. His current single, “Feds Watching,” was produced by and features Pharrell. On September 10, 2 Chainz will drop his second solo LP, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time . “I’m putting together different sounds to make people be like, ‘This is about me. Me and my people, this is our time,’ ” he told MTV News in June after headlining Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash concert in Atlanta.
As always, Chainz is hush on the exact details of his album and his VMA appearance, but with an awards show lineup that already includes Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Kayne West, Katy Perry, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus and Drake, you can bet 2 Chainz will bring his A-game with whatever he has planned.
