James Harden and 2 Chainz

2 Chainz and James Harden initially gained recognition as part of a larger group: Chainz with both Playaz Cirlce and DTP, and Harden with the talented Oklahoma City Thunder. Then each stepped out on their own and proved that they could hold their own, as Chainz became arguably the hottest feature out and Harden became arguably the best shooting guard in the NBA.
