Just a few hours after announcing the title of his forthcoming sophomore album Based On A T.R.U. Story II: Me Time—set to be released just in time for the upcoming school year on September 10th—ATL icon 2 Chainz hit his hometown radio station Hot 107.9′s Birthday Bash for a standout performance on Saturday night. Backstage after the show, Chainz caught up with MTV News to delve into the direction of the new LP.
In the interview, he says, ”Me Time has multiple meanings. I feel like my music actually gives people a sense of going away sometimes—without really going on vacation.” Hoping to give his fans an escape from regular life, he’s aware of his responsibility to keep it light for the listeners. “When people listen to me, they feel like they’re goin’ somewhere, taking time off; they’re relaxing, lettin’ their hair down. Every time somebody wants to have some ‘me time’ or whatever, this is the type of vibe, this is the type of project [to listen to].”
