2 Chainz has some business to take of in NYC this week. The Atlanta rapper will perform a sold out show at SOB's on Monday night (January 30) then he'll stop by "RapFix Live" on Wednesday, where he will announce his new record deal. "I think I'm gonna come sit on the sofa Wednesday. Me and you got a lot of things we got to talk about face-to-face," 2 Chainz told Sway when he Skyped into last week's episode.
"It should be a good day Wednesday. I'm coming up to New York and have a few finalized meetings also," he added.
On Monday (January 30), Chainz, who got his start as Tity Boi in the rap duo Playaz Circle, will be performing his first major New York concert at SOB's. Over the past year, 2 Chainz has reinvented himself as a solo artist and taken a hold on rap's underground thanks to catchy anthems like his latest single "Spend It." After his NYC concert, the "Duffle Bag Boy" rapper will be running around the city tying up loose ends before he sits with Sway on Wednesday. By that time he will be ready to announce his new recording home exclusively on "RapFix Live."
"Might as well let the cat out the bag," he said.
Mac Miller is another of rap's most exciting newcomers, and MTV News recently went back to the 'Burgh with the "Donald Trump" rapper when he performed a pair of homecoming shows in December. All week long, MTV News will be spotlighting Pittsburgh's growing hip-hop scene with exclusive interviews and video content. On Wednesday, fans can tune in to watch backstage and concert footage from Mac's Pittsburgh show. You don't want to miss it!
