On his solo debut album 2 Chainz promises to give the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so it’s appropriate that the LP’s lead single is titled “No Lie.” 2 Chainz revealed the artwork for “No Lie” on Monday night, and today we have the full track, complete with a feature from Drake. The new cut, with a beat courtesy of Mike Will, is the first single from the Atlanta rapper’s upcoming Def Jam debut Based on a T.R.U. Story. Listen below.
“I’m working with people like Kanye, of course. I’m in a good creative space right now,” Deuce recently MTV News about his mindset while putting the finishing touches on Based on a T.R.U. Story. “I’m able to get my hands on a lot of things that I need. I have access to a lot of artists right now. I have great production.”
“You can expect a lot of surprises. I like to bring the element of surprise back in hip-hop; bring the enjoyment and anticipation,” he said. Fans will have to wait until August 14 to get their hands on the LP, but “No Lie” gives a first taste. “I don’t wanna leak a record right now, I’m doing so many features and ’Riot’ is doing so well, I don’t want to cause any kind of confusion.”
