Grammy-nominated rapper 2 Chainz recently dished out the details behind his upcoming "2 Broke Girls" cameo, which is slated to premiere next week on CBS.
According to Chainz and the show's co-stars, he came through on his performance with flying colors.
"It was real hard, but I knew I could pull it off," Deuce told "TWIJ." "Being 2 Chainz is a real hard task so what I had to do was wear 2 Chainz." The show's stars had only good things to say about the rapper's dive into acting. "He went really method," said Beth Behrs, who plays former rich girl Caroline on the show. "He's really funny. You got a gift for comedy. You're a good actor." The "Birthday Song" spitter is used to rap compliments but looked to his new acting buddies for reassurance. "You just telling me that? You pulling my chain," he asked Behrs. "Would we pull your chains, 2 Chainz?" Kat Dennings, who plays Max, answered jokingly. (MTV)
