2 Chainz, ‘B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time’: Fall Music Preview 2013
Release Date: Sept. 10
Label: Def Jam Recordings
From its artwork, courtesy of Kanye West’s DONDA multimedia company, to its rhymes, 2 Chainz’ "B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time" features the Atlanta rapper becoming self-aware of his success. (His 2012 debut, "Based on a T.R.U. Story," bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.) “Started from a pot, then I took over the spot/Then I took over the block, then I took over hip-hop,” 2 Chainz raps on his forthcoming album’s second single, “Own Drugs.” Me Time is laced with 2 Chainz’ quotable, straight-forward raps carried by addictive beats courtesy of Mike Will Made It (“Own Drugs,” “Fork”), Pharrell Williams (“Feds Watching”) and more. “The vibe of the album is some club and street shit. We just wanted to capture that and it was very organic,” Mike Will Made It says of "Me Time."
