2 Chainz jumped on Drake’s Club Paradise tour earlier this week, performing in front of sold-out arenas While he is swinging with the biggest rap tour of the summer, he refuses to be upstaged.

“I’m not rehearsing at all,” he told CBS Local. “It’s a lifestyle. I’ve done 200 shows since last year. I’m confident in my performance skills.”

While he insists that he’s not over-thinking his performance, Chainz does have a strategy.

“You want to use your time wisely, you want it to be entertainment,” he said. “For me, it doesn’t take a lot of thinking, this is something I do. It’s just about me cutting [down my set] and still having that excitement and giving people what they want.”

In March, Drake announced that he would be extending his Club Paradise tour and will be joined by French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill and 2 Chainz.

Performing alongside some of the hottest rappers in the game creates a friendly competition and 2 Chainz intends to come out on top.

“The mind behind it is still kill-kill-kill, murder-murder,” he said. “But at the same time, it’s not stressful for me. I don’t have to set time aside. I’m an artist, I have my own choreography skills. I don’t have to get any dance moves together. I pray before every show I go out there and I rock.”

On Tuesday (April 8), police cut headliner Drake‘s set short in Irvine, CA. The show reportedly went beyond its scheduled time. 2 Chainz performed earlier in the evening. The extended version of the tour kicked off on Monday and will continue throughout June. –Erik Parker, CBS Local
