Even though he’s been in the game since 1997, for the first time 2 Chainz is stepping out on his own with a debut solo album, “Based On A T.R.U Story”. Once a part of the rap duo, Playaz Circle, it’s about time 2 Chainz got some wide recognition for his solo work. He had a huge year, exploding on the scene with major guest appearances on tracks like “Mercy” by Kanye West and “Beez in the Trap” with Nicki Minaj. But now 2 Chainz has his own studio album, produced with heavy hitters like Drumma Boy, C-Note, Mike Will and Lex Luger. 2 Chainz already released the album’s lead single, “No Lie” that features Canada’s own, Drake. The album will be out August 14th and we can now all appreciate the simple, literal album cover.
