HOLLYWOOD ACTOR Leonardo Dicaprio has said he is proud of the Georgia- born rapper 2 Chainz.
Speaking to MTV about his up coming role in the new Baz Luhrmann movie, The Great Gatsby, Dicaprio admitted he is a fan of a few hip-hop artists.
“Kendrick Lamar is great, 2 Chainz is great too — don’t forget 2 Chainz,” he said.
“By the way, he’s my age — I’m very proud of a guy emerging in the hip-hop world at my age,” said the 38-year-old.
The soundtrack for the film has been directed by Jay-Z and is said to feature many of the industries leading rappers.
Dicaprio also compared the New York native to the title character: “Jay-Z is a bit of a Gatsby,” he said.
“[He] felt a connection with Gatsby and that sort of fusion is a fantastic one. It really works with the context of the movie and making people understand the excitement of that era.”
