2 Chainz is everywhere—from his single “Feds Watching” to collaborations with Fall Out Boy, Jason Derulo, and Tinie Tempah. And now R&B icon R. Kelly has called on the in-demand rapper for his new single “My Story,” which is set to debut on Monday.

From “being broke to sleepin’ in Versace shirts,” R. Kelly tells “My Story” on his brand new single featuring 2 Chainz. After debuting the song live at the BET Awards last month, the Chi-town legend shares his rags-to-riches tale, with plenty of quotables (“I beat the pussy, Django” and “Say she a church girl, but man she blowin’ holy smoke”).

The song comes complete with a catchy chorus and a verse from 2 Chainz. “This is my story and I’m stickin’ to it,” sings Kellz.

Last year, he announced that he was working on a new album called Black Panties. “I decided to go back and do an old-school R. Kelly album like 12 Play,” he said of his iconic 1993 album.

In the meantime, the Pied Piper has been playing summer festivals including Bonnaroo and the Pitchfork Music Festival, and made a surprise appearance during Phoenix’s set at Coachella.

Listen to his story below.
