2 Chainz Has ‘Given Up’ On Getting A Jay-Z Feature: I Don’t Like Rejection

2 Chainz might not be able to check off working with Jay-Z from his bucket list. But it looks like he’s okay with that.

While discussing his latest project, So Help Me God on The Breakfast Club, his song “Southside Hov”, which samples Jay-Z’s “Feelin’ It” from his 1996 album Reasonable Doubt, was mentioned.

2 said he didn’t try and get Jay-Z on the song but made sure to send the video to him.

“I didn’t [try to get Jay-Z on that]. Me and Hov cool. I did a video for that so I sent him the video when I did it and the song, to show him the angle that I wasn’t trying to be him. Since it was a Hov sample and the things I was talking about in the song, it was some Hov stuff. So I named it Southside Hov. He was like ‘I’m humbled by it.’ It was a cool back and forth we had.”

As for why he didn’t try and get Jay-Z on the song he said:

“I’ve given up that. I don’t like rejection. I got this mental thing, the people that I deal with don’t even notice, where I might ask somebody something three times over my whole life. And secretly after the third time I won’t ever, ever, ever…I’m really twice but then I’ll be like ‘You in your feelings. Get out your feelings man, try again!’ Then I’ll be like ‘Oh naw… never again.”

But he’s not completely hopeless. He went on to say:

“If it happens, it’ll be a blessing. But if it don’t happen, it’ll just be something that don’t happen. I’m still gon’ keep rocking, I’ll still have high respect. The thing that I wanna do with Hov is just show that I’m an the upperclassmen too. Just knowing the type of people he did that for when he was a little bit more active, obviously things have kind of shut down…”

He added:

“I don’t think about that anymore. But it’s funny people [say], ‘Oh this the one he could’ve got on!’ I’m like ‘What have I done to myself?'”
