A few weeks ago, Chainz revealed plans to release an underground effort called T.R.U. Jack City in the near future.
“Top of the year is the rollout of the whole campaign with my third album in three years and then I’ve got this mixtape called Tru Jack City. It’s my mixtape, but it’s for up-and-coming rappers in Atlanta. … It’s real ratchet, it’s real street. It’s catered for the core. We’re a crew full of individuals. It’s one thing about T.R.U. It’s about being the real you. We just putting on. We got something to bring to the table and we got something to say.” (Revolt TV)
The rap star recently revealed his next solo album would arrive this year on social media.
