Headliners: 2 Chainz and DJ Drama
Mixtape: T.R.U. REALigion
Real Spit: It’s hard to find a hotter rapper out of Atlanta than 2 Chainz right now. His current single “Spend It” remains one of the hottest songs in rap and even got a T.I. makeover when the King of the South hopped on the remix after he was released from prison in September. Still, that isn’t enough for the MC formerly known as Tity Boi. On November 1, 2 Chainz will be releasing his T.R.U. REALigion mixtape, while most fans are still clamoring over his last one, Codeine Cowboy 2 .
2 Chainz utilized some pretty clever wordplay for the title. “I spell it R-E-A-L because I feel like most people understand and know what religion is — it’s the study and belief — [but] a lot of people don’t know what it’s like to be real,” he explained to Mixtape Daily. And I’m here to kinda lead that campaign on why I feel like being real is a minority.”
On the Jadakiss-assisted “One Day at a Time,” 2 Chainz slows his roll and raps about his everyday problems. After Chainz spills his feelings onto the track, Kiss jumps in with a scene-stealing verse.
It is no secret that 2 Chainz’s star is on the rise. The DJ Drama-helmed T.R.U. REALigion will only cement what real hip-hop fans have known for some time now — 2 Chainz got next!
Joints to Check For
» “One Day at a Time” – “It’s not necessarily a song that I would perform to do a show, it’s more or less like a vibe record. I felt like it just showed kinda how I move and kinda how I process my data. Kinda how I felt about everything — I just take it one day at a time.”
» “Undastatement” – “I think the next track I really like is one of the solo tracks that I did, produced by Lex Luger and South Side, it’s called ‘Undastatement.’ Basically the title is self-explanatory.”
