Back in 2007, Lil Wayne was a part of 2 Chainz's first mainstream music success, with his catchy chorus on Playaz Circle's hit "Duffle Bag Boy." It would soon become apparent, on future collabs like "Rich as F--k," "Preach" and "Yuck," that these two helped bring the best out of one another: Their witty, playful punchlines and creative, boastful metaphors were only enhanced side-by-side on one track.
Now, before long, we'll be in store for a full album of their musical union.
2 Chainz announced as much last month, teasing, “I’ve got ColliGrove, that I’m working on. That’s the me and Wayne project. That will be out, probably sooner than people think.”
But the broadcasted existence of joint albums from two rap stars hasn't always brought them to fruition. Fans have been waiting for a J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar project for years, with hopes that it'll still arrive. T.I. and Jeezy have been stringing us along for what feels like forever. Rick Ross and Drake were supposed to deliver that Y.O.L.O. mixtape.
Wayne and Chainz's effort hopefully, maybe, possibly could be different.
Our first proof: A live playing of a new song by Chainz, captured by HipHopSince1987, with the two MCs trading bars.
More of this, please.
