G.O.O.D. Music affiliate 2 Chainz has announced plans to put out a new album called Before Chainz in the coming months.
Along with the new studio effort, Chainz also revealed an upcoming joint release with rap star Lil Wayne coming together.
“It’s gonna be called B.C., like B.C. and A.D. B.C. is Before Chainz,’ obviously. A.D. would be like After the Dope Game,’ After the drugs, everything is a different feel. But B.C. is done. It’s Tity Boi. It’s nostalgic,” Chainz said in an interview. “Then I got Collegroove. That’s the project me and [Lil] Wayne working on. That’ll be out probably sooner than people think.” (Rap Radar Podcast)
Earlier this year, Chainz talked about his long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time album.
“I should have an album coming out this year. I’ll be switching into Titty Boi mode and really going hard on my project. When it comes to my work you’re going to expect a concept, you’re going to expect a storyline, expect bars and beats and everything else that comes with 2 Chainz. Right now and as far as 2014, I was really focusing on surrounding myself with a comfortable team for the youth and experience that could keep me alive and popping while giving me some longevity. I’m starting to feel like the beginning of that. Now, I can revert back to Titty Boi and being me again, 2 Chainz, Titty Boi the only child. Really going in and giving fans something to be proud of.” (HHDX)
Chainz revealed his next solo album would arrive sometime this year on social media in December 2014.

Chainz recently said his previously titled B.O.A.T.S. III had undergone a complete makeover.
“It’s just time to turn the page, it’s a new chapter, it’s a new day and a different campaign,” Chainz said in an interview. “I think its more Tity Boi, it’s more circa ’05 and ’06, when I had [the] 745 Beamer swag with cornrows. But with better instruments, more music behind it, more storytelling and more heartfelt. I can’t leave the trap alone.” (MTV)
