Around mid-June, the Atlanta rapper revealed making his sophomore release a sequel.

Earlier in the week, Chainz confirmed his upcoming effort would arrive around mid-September.
“As far as my album, it’s dropping September 10th,” Chainz confirmed in an interview. “That approach may be a little bit different. I think I took steps foward. I don’t think I capped out as far as having a glass ceilig. I definitely showed growth. I definitely showed progress. I have some more entertaining features on there, you know I like to keep that element of surprise, keep that hip-hop alive, that feel. Great producers, I never thought I’d have a chance to work with. I reached out — it’s my sophomore album, I feel good about it. I definitely have more fans than I did the last time. So it should be a cool little journey.” (Revolt TV)
Music producer Pharrell Williams recently discussed putting together their new “Feds Watching” anthem.
“He had a room full of all his folks and they were all in the zone,” Pharrell recalled, explaining the atmosphere he walked into. “I [was] absorbing the air and the vibe, the tone, the pacing because everybody there was pretty much on a similar page. Immediately I started working on what that [vibe] felt like to me and that there’s where the loop of the beat [came from]. It’s that ’80s ska, reggae, glass-of-wine type of feel. I just put the drums up under it and it just happened that way.” (MTV)
