2 Chainz celebrated his first Grammy award win at a Def Jam after-party in Los Angeles with Iggy Azalea, Bibi Bourelly, Desiigner and Def Jam CEO Steve Bartels in attendance.
2 Chainz was elated given the fact of his four prior attempts, the 39-year-old rapper gained his first Grammy for best rap performance as a featured artist on Chance the Rapper’s single “No Problem.”
“Everybody has their trial and tribulations and stories of where they came from, but it’s very, very humbling for me,” said Chainz on nabbing his first gold trophy. “My mom calls me Tah, my friends call me Tity, everybody else calls me Chainz. I got my first Grammy today. I’ve been doing what I love doing. You know, [I’ve been] working my ass off. There’s been a lot of long nights and short days. There’s been a lot of hard work, a lot of long prayers, but let me tell you, it don’t stop. So, like I say, each and everyday, I try to get better than I was the previous. Shout-out to my crew, my family in here, and the label,” he concluded his speech.
