Grammy-nominated rapper 2 Chainz is already chopping away at his sophomore solo album but continues to show off his steady grind by releasing the new "Crack" music video from last summer's Based On A T.R.U Story debut.
Despite dropping over six months ago, Chainz shows he is far from finished promoting his chart-topping debut with the album's latest visual.
Atlanta's own, 2 Chainz, returns to the interwebs today with a dope new set of visuals for our viewing pleasures. This time around it's "Crack" that gets the treatment, and it gets a rather dope, fitting treatment. As 2 Chainz is deep in the streets spitting his bars and showing off his talents, he does so while getting a number of catchy, colorful visual effects. As the clip progresses, 2 Chainz takes us to the gritty streets as he speaks about that life. (Stupid Dope)
Earlier this month, Chainz promised to silence his critics with Based On A T.R.U Story's follow-up.
""Next album will hush all the critics that the 1st album didn't...," he tweeted March 7th. (2 Chainz's Twitter)
Last fall, the rapper formerly known as "Tity Boi" revealed plans to turn his next album in by April.
"I'm trying to turn in my album by April of next year," 2 Chainz told MTV News after performing at Philadelphia's Powerhouse concert on Friday night. "It won't come out then but I'm at least trying to turn it in and set up for more tours because we enjoy doing live shows, so be looking out for more of that from the crew." So far, 2 Chainz has banked less than a handful of new songs, but he's already got at least one solid feature locked down. "I have three songs already recorded and I have one feature on the song," he revealed. "I don't wanna put that out [yet]; you gotta wait, but it's dope." (MTV)
Outside of music-making, Chainz recently discussed an interest in taking acting seriously.
Now he's thinking about what comes next; his second album is in the works, but 2 Chainz says something in the movie realm is also possible. "It sounds like a world I could be part of," he acknowledges. "We've got a couple of scripts we're looking at. We've got a couple endorsements. We've been looking at contracts, (publishing) deals. We have a few things going on in our small little world. "I'm just taking it one day at a time. My team is focused. We're still trying to make an impact in different things. I don't want to limit myself, so just be expecting some more from 2 Chainz." (Contra Costa Times)
