Grammy-nominated rapper 2 Chainz recently revealed the status of his upcoming sophomore album and said he has no intention of switching up his music's content.
With the project slated to drop in September, Chainz downplayed the idea of needing to switch up his bars.
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 announced his new LP's release date on Twitter last Friday (May 24).
"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)
Over the winter, Chainz promised to up the ante on his next LP.
"Thanks MTV , headed to the lab ...," Chainz tweeted March 7th.
"Next album will hush all the critics that the 1st album didn't..."
"Def a blessing.... Always wanted to be mentioned on that list" (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)
