2 Chainz is ready to solidify his solo star.
Following the release of his solo debut album, Based On A T.R.U. Story in mid-August, the Atlanta rapper will be embarking on his first solo national tour. The eight-city tour will begin in near the end of that month and run through September, and will make stops everywhere from Virginia to Chicago to Austin.
“One of the things I enjoy the most about being an artist is the opportunity to get on the stage and give the fans everything they deserve,” 2 Chainz said in a press release. “Everything they’ve come to expect from me. I’ve performed along side some of the best in this business, but this time will be something special. This time it’s all me.”
The dreaded rapper is fresh off of the Club Paradise Tour alongside Drake, J. Cole, Meek Mill and others, and is and currently tagging along with his “Beez In The Trap” collaborator Nicki Minaj’s Roman Reloaded Tour.
Yesterday, he followed up his smash lead single “No Lie,” featuring Drake, with the Kanye West-assisted “Birthday Song.” (Listen here)
