Diplo links 2 Chainz up with PSY for a collaboration.
It may seem odd to pair 2 Chainz with PSY (of "Gangnam Style" fame), but Diplo reportedly thought it would be a good idea. 2 Chainz and PSY were both highly marketable artists in 2012 but come from different genres and styles, making this an unlikely duo for a collaboration.
However, they do have some things in common. Both had some success in 2012. On his end, 2 Chainz continued to explode onto the scene almost as a new artist after changing his name. In 2012, he appeared as a high profile guest on several projects and released his own debut as 2 Chainz with Based on a T.R.U. Story. Meanwhile, PSY was also creating a buzz for himself with "Gangnam Style," a widely popular music video.
Diplo, who reportedly connected Chainz and PSY, posted the news on his Twitter feed.
