Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz kept his promise of premiering new music at last night’s Hot 97 Summer Jam XX concert by performing his untitled sophomore album’s new single, “Feds Watching.”
Chainz hit the stage running Sunday (June 2) evening at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey strapped with the new record.
2 Chainz had promised he will debut his new single from the upcoming sophomore album tonight and he surely delivered on it. Tity Boi displayed solid energy during his set at Hot 97 Summer Jam which included bringing out special guest Nicki Minaj and premiere of his new single ‘Feds Watching’ which is produced by Pharrell.

Heading into the weekend, Chainz annouced he would treat concertgoers to an official first listen to his project’s track.
“I WILL DEBUT MY NEW SINGLE FOR MY NEW ALBUM AT SUMMER JAM.. Fuk it I’m byke outchea, PS. I came and neva left,” Chainz tweeted May 31st. (2 Chainz’s Twitter)
The news came days after Chainz downplayed the idea of needing to switch up his bars on the sophomore solo effort.
The six-foot-five giant with the strange look and the twisted humor (Money talk, you ain’t got none / End of discussion) is hip-hop’s most in-demand MC, thanks to his tawdry, spit-take-funny two-beat punch lines. “There’s nothing new under the sun,” Chainz says about the lyrics for his second album, out this summer. “Everyone’s sold dope, f*cked bitches, popped champagne, shot guns. I’ll take the extra minutes to do it a new way.” (GQ)
Chainz also announced the new LP’s release date on Twitter in May.
“FEATURES ON HAULT… NEW ALBUM ON THE WAY SEPTEMBER TENTH!!!!,” he tweeted May 24th.
“RT @KarenCivil: 2 Chainz is releasing his new LP Sept 10th!” (2 Chainz’s Twitter)
