2 Chainz Recruits Young Jeezy, Big Sean for His DJ Drama Mixtape

With his buzz at an all time high, Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz is gearing up for the release of his very first DJ Drama-hosted, Gangsta Grillz mixtape, T.R.U. REALigion. recently caught up with the MC formerly known as Tity Boi to find out what fans can expect from the project.

“I’m finnin’ to make it hard,” Chainz said. “I know people are putting out albums, but I’m finnin’ to make it hard putting out this free music. I’m excited. I have so many new songs I’m excited about.”

And fans have a lot to anticipate. With a long list of big dog collaborations, this might be Chainz’s most star-studded project to date.

“I have Big Sean, Gucci [Mane], [Young] Jeezy and Birdman on the record,” he revealed. “I have a record I gave to Green Lantern to do his thing with Jadakiss. I got a couple surprise people that ain’t nobody in the world gonna believe been calling my phone. We’ve been talking about doing a remix to ‘Spend It.’ Won’t nobody in the world believe it. But I don’t like talking about the new Js until I’m in ’em.”

But don’t let the tape’s title fool you. As 2 Chainz explains, it’s deeper than just a reference to the True Religion clothing company.

“Religion is the study of belief and trying to find the truth,” he said about the mixtape’s concept. “T.R.U. can stand for anything from The Real University to anything I want it to be. I’ll be giving out scholarships to be this real shit. It’s a big concept and we going hard. A lot of these niggas used to be real and they dropped out, you feel me? Everybody can’t get a degree in this real shit. Everybody can’t get it, they gonna have to go to summer school. So T.R.U. REALigion, not only am I swagged up, but understand this has to do more than with some clothes.”

2 Chainz’s T.R.U. REALigion is set for release on November 1. —Shaheem Reid
