2 Chainz Reveals Title of Sophomore Album
2 Chainz is not going to let some stick-up kids slow him down. That Atlanta rhyme-slinger announced on Saturday (June 15) the title of his second album. The collection is going to be called ‘B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time.’
The album follows behind his debut album, ‘Based on a T.R.U. Story,’ which was certified gold for shipping 500,000 copies in the U.S. It also garnered Deuce his first Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album.
2 Chainz describes the project as a care-free album to help take listeners away from their everyday problems.
“‘Me Time’ has multiple meanings. I feel like my music actually gives people a sense of going away sometimes — without really going on vacation,” he told MTV News. “I feel like when people listen to me, they feel like they’re goin’ somewhere, taking time off; they’re relaxing, lettin’ their hair down.”
“It just felt like it was something different, it felt like it was something that needed to happen,” Chainz says of the song. “For me it was about of course staying comfortable but trying new stuff, and that’s what I did rocking with Pharrell.”
Meanwhile, 2 Chainz will be busy this summer headlining the America’s Most Wanted Music Festival with fellow rappers T.I. and Lil Wayne. The trek begins July 9 in Birmingham, Ala., and ends Sept. 1 in Irvine, Calif.
