Kanye West reignited rumors that he may be signing 2 Chainz to G.O.O.D. Music when he tweeted, “2 Chainz is charging 100k for a verse now cause he’s G.O.O.D!!!!!!” But the former Playaz Circle member still won’t confirm or deny his affiliation with the hip-hop label.

Shortly after Kanye sent out the tweet, 2 Chainz appeared on Bootleg Kev’s radio show to address the chatter.
“He just saying like I’m good, like I’m ill,” said 2 Chainz, whose Drake-assisted single “No Lie” is in the top 10 on iTunes.
His popularity has made him reevaluate his collaborations. “I think I was jeopardizing my brand sometimes by doing the homeboy special,” he explained. “I just felt like we should put that out there that we ain’t doing no more of that.”
Prior to signing with Def Jam, he may have done otherwise. “I would of done almost anything a couple months ago. I still will, I’m still grounded, but it just makes sense for me to slow down a little bit being that I got an album [Based on a T.R.U. Story] coming out August the 14th.”
But he remained coy when asked for a straight answer regarding G.O.O.D. Music. “I’m still into the element of surprise so you just gotta [stay tuned].”
