In an interview with XXL, 2 Chainz fka Tity Boi confirms that he's left LudacrisDisturbing Tha Peace label to pursue his own endeavors through Def Jam, where Ludacris is also signed. 2 Chainz says there are no hard feelings between them following the split:

It’s not DTP no more... I just took another route as far as running my own company and bossing up. But on the other hand, I’m still working with him. He has an album coming out this year, as well. Matter of fact, we are label mates, now, which is crazy. So, yeah, that’ll be cool. I’m looking forward to that.

Earlier this week, 2 Chainz said he'd officially announce his new contract tomorrow on MTV's RapFix Live. Last night, at the close of his debut NYC show, the rapper shouted out the Def Jam executives in the audience from the stage.
