2 Chainz and DJ Premier have come together on the new track “Mortgage Free” – you can listen to it below.
The duo debuted in 2018 on the track ‘Flirt’ taken from ‘PRhyme 2’ – the second collaborative album between Premier and Royce Da 5’9″.
“Mortgage Free” is the latest track from producer Gang Starr’s solo series with Payday Records, which has already seen him collaborate with A$AP Ferg (“Our Streets”) and Griselda (“Headlines”).
“Since 2 Chains joined Royce and I on ‘Flirt’, I made the love back again by sending him a beat while he was in the Bahamas with Statik Selektah earlier this year recording for various projects,” the premier said of the track. “I sent him the beat and he brought it back to me the same night.
He continued, “I asked him why he was using it, and he said he would find out which project would continue at a later time, because he is working on many different projects. Since the end of the year approached, I knew I had another one left to release on Payday Records. After discussing it with management, I suggested that I put it down. 2 Chains was broken and now we have another video of Bars and Boom-Bap rendering the sound the way you want it.”

Earlier this year, DJ Premier shared “Founders Remix” for Gang Starr’s song “Glowing Mic”.
This came after the popular rap duo released “One Of The Best yet” in 2019, their first album in 15 years and the first since the death of co-founder Guru.
The album was previewed with a single titled Family and Loyalty, featuring J. Cole and Bad Name. The previous track earned a touching music video featuring the son of the Prime Minister, Cole and guru Keith Kasim.
They followed it up last year with an instrumental version, which featured “Glowing Mic” as a bonus single. A new remix version of the record features a new verse from Gang Starr Foundation rapper Big Shug.
Meanwhile, 2 Chains recently appeared in a documentary examining his passion for basketball and his history on the court.
