There are certain benefits that come with being one of the hottest up-and-coming talents in the rap game; just ask 2 Chainz.
"I'm working with people like Kanye, of course. I'm in a good creative space right now," Deuce told MTV News about his mindset while putting the finishing touches on his debut solo album, Based on a T.R.U. Story. "I'm able to get my hands on a lot of things that I need. I have access to a lot of artists right now. I have great production."
We caught up with the MC formerly known as Tity Boi on the set of MTV2's upcoming game show "Hip Hop Squares" and spoke about what fans can expect from his highly anticipated Def Jam release. "You can expect a lot of surprises. I like to bring the element of surprise back in hip-hop; bring the enjoyment and anticipation," he said. Fans will have to wait until August 14 to get their hands on the LP, but the Atlanta rap virtuoso plans to release a single entitled "No Lie" on May 1. "I don't wanna leak a record right now, I'm doing so many features and 'Riot' is doing so well, I don't want to cause any kind of confusion."
To say he's doing well is a bit of an understatement. 2 Chainz is currently featured on Young Jeezy's "SupaFreak," Nicki Minaj's "Beez in the Trap" and Kanye West's latest G.O.O.D. Music single "Mercy." His current solo single, "Riot," is quickly becoming a staple for hip-hop mixshow radio DJs.
For the most part, 2 Chainz is classified as a trap rapper whose material mainly revolves around the drug game and street life. With Based on a T.R.U. Story, he plans to change all of that. "From me you can expect concepts; you can expect things that you can think about, substance," he explained. "Although I have a trap background and I'm heavy with the street credibility, I also have the mind frame to expand a few ideas and some current events, ya dig?"
What kind of surprises are you hoping to hear on 2 Chainz's debut? Leave your comment below!
