Atlanta Rapper 2 Chainz Drops Debut Album, ‘Based on a T.R.U. Story’

Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz, who has been making guest appearances for years and has a few mixtapes to his name as well, is set to release his first official album, Based on a T.R.U. Story, today (8/14) via Def Jam. The album features guest spots from Kanye West, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, The-Dream, John Legend, Scarface, and more.

2 Chainz has some upcoming dates in support of the new album. His only live date in the NYC area is Rock the Bells, which he plays on September 1 at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ, but he’ll be in NYC on Thursday (8/16) to sign autographs of the new album at J&R Music and Computer World (23 Park Row) at 6 PM. “Purchase the CD beginning 8/14 & receive a wristband to meet 2 Chainz on 8/16. While supplies last.”

That same night (8/16), there will also be an official album release party for Based on a T.R.U. Story at Webster Hall for a Girls Night Out party (ladies free all night). No word on whether or not 2 Chainz will actually be showing up, but if he’s in NYC for that autograph signing, it seems likely.
