DJ Premier and 2 Chainz celebrate the end of the year by releasing their new track Mortgage Free
DJ Premier and 2 Chainz have teamed up for a new song called Mortgage Free . This is the first time that the two legends have worked together for three years, after the single Flirt in 2018.
“ Ever since 2 Chainz joined us, Royce and I, on PRhyme 2’s ‘Flirt’, I returned love to him by sending him a beat while he was in the Bahamas with Statik Selektah earlier this year for save various projects. I sent him the beat and he sent it back to me the same night, ” recalls DJ Premier. “ I asked him what he was using it for and he said he would figure out later which project he would go on because he works on so many different projects. As the end of the year approached, I knew I had one single left to release on Payday Records. After discussing it with management, I suggested taking it out. 2 Chainz was okay and now we have another Bars and Boom-Bap banger delivered the way you want it to sound ”.
