The journey of 2 Chainz, formerly known as Tity Boi, has been a marathon. If he’s not putting out the wildest metaphors you’ve ever heard, 2 Chainz is probably traveling with his $100,000 dog, Trappy, while sipping on $5,000 wine.
With momentum carrying over from his 2017 album, Pretty Girls Love Trap Music, Chainz is proving to to be an international icon. So far in 2018, 2 Chainz has spazzed on tracks with the likes of Migos, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem. With his latest EP, The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It, “Drench God” let the world know how he’s coming all year.
2 Chainz is one of the best rappers not only in Atlanta, but in hip-hop. Trust me when I say his run is far from over. It’s time for College Park’s own to take the throne.
Right when you think the Atlanta emcee is about to fall off, he bounces back. Recently, 2 Chainz took to Instagram to reveal the name of his fifth studio album. It was nothing short of legendary. Imagine driving home after the NBA All-Star game, you look up and you’re freaking out because you think it’s a UFO.
In reality, its a blimp displaying Drench God’s new album name, Rap Or Go To The League. No cap! You have to admit this is the hardest album reveal ever.
Rap Or Go To The League is 2 Chainz’s most anticipated album. Conceptually it goes deeper than just the name. A young child’s paradigm in lower-income areas across the country is either rap, sell drugs, or be an athlete to escape the “trap” of their environment. In their minds, it’s the only way out of the hood.
Tauheed Epps took heed of the pattern and wants to enlighten those going through similar struggles of other ways to make it out the trap.
While trappin’, hooping, and rapping his way out of the trenches of College Park, 2 Chainz has been sharing his story through his verses and giving hope to listeners who can relate. During his hip-hop marathon, 2 Chainz has realized this concept dives even deeper to a more personal level.
This is in regards to his career. He’s looking in the mirror and asking himself if he just wants to be average or in the Hall of Fame? Does he want to be remembered in the same league as Lil Wayne and Jay-Z? Or Kendrick Lamar and Drake? Does he want his name to be synonymous with T.I. and Gucci Mane? Or 6ix9ine and Lil Pump?
There is levels to this rap game. When you decide to enter the league, you’re in it to be remembered.
After years in the lab sharpening his lyrical sword, Tity Boi is finally ready to breakout into a league of his own. Rapping alongside the original rapper eater, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz is ready to load his plate full of emcees all 2018. Although we don’t know much about this forthcoming album, we do know the sound is very sample-driven.
Think of it as 2 Chainz meets A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders; it’s going to be an instant classic. Are you excited for new 2 Chainz sounds?
