Everyone deserves a little chill time now and then; just ask 2 Chainz, who dropped his sophomore album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time on September 10 and will pay a visit to “RapFix Live” on Wednesday to fill host Sway Calloway in on what he’s been up to.
The new album is led by the single “Feds Watching,” featuring Pharrell. Other features on the project include Ma$e, T-Pain, Lil Wayne and Drake, with production from Mike Will Made It, Drumma Boy and more.
Before the official drop date, 2 Chainz did his best to keep details about the project under wraps, telling MTV News, “When I came up, I feel like people didn’t put out their tracklist before the album dropped. I feel like it was an event. When I became this popular I looked back on what I used to like so much about hip-hop, and what I liked was features that you couldn’t believe was really happening. Today a lot of the features are kind of cliché and everything is so microwaveable. Everybody’s gotta be so quick, so I try to cook mine a little longer.”
But now that the album’s out, everything is fair game. In addition to the LP album, 2 Chainz also dropped his new “Meal Time” cookbook — yes, you read that right — so that fans can whip up quick and healthy meals on the go.
Catch 2 Chainz on “RapFix Live” Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT on MTV Jams and RapFix.MTV.com. Join the conversation using the hashtag #RapFixLive and send your Qs for the MCs to @MTVRapFix!
