2 Chainz and Steve Stoute go head-to-head in the first of five episodes of Crate Talk, a new interview show part of YouTube Music’s recently announced short-form video mini-series program.
2 Chainz’s fifth album, RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE, out now, challenges the notion that the only way out of the inner city is either to become a rapper or a ball player. In his new short-form series Crate Talk, 2 Chainz invites guests to discuss the power of education and entrepreneurship over a game of SELF (instead of HORSE) on a basketball court in his hometown of Atlanta.
Crate Talk Episode 1 with Steve Stoute is out now on 2 Chainz’s YouTube channel. Future episodes will feature Gary V, Winnie Harlow, Mike Dean, and 2 Chainz’s daughter Heaven Epps.
YouTube Music is partnering with artists to create short-form promotional mini-series for their Official Artist Channels. These partnerships seek to give artists an increased presence on YouTube and help them further express their creativity, engage with fans, and promote new music releases.
