Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz Release ‘ColleGrove’ Album
After announcing the project back in November, and teasing it here and there, 2 Chianz has finally let his collaborative project with Lil Wayne loose. As a unit, the two rappers are known as ColleGrove, mashing the names of their respective neighborhoods together.
Similarly, the tracklist for ColleGrove is a mash-up of songs previously featured on Chainz' Felt Like Cappin' mixtape released in January with new ones featuring Wayne. Subsequently, Wayne isn't on every track as might have been the presumption, but rather eight of the albums eleven songs, though "Back on the Bullshyt" from Cappin' and featuring Wayne, is noticeably absent.
A Spotify stream of the album is included below, with a more detailed tracklist just above. Early Friday morning (Mar. 4) Chainz posted a handwritten list to Instagram, sharing the producers for each song, and with Metro Boomin, Mike Will, Zaytoven, and more included, it's a veritable who's who of A-list beat makers.
Last month, the ColleGrove boys, who first linked up on 2007 single "Duffle Bag Boy," performed "Rolls Royce Weather Every Day" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and will release the video for "Bounce" at 7:55 p.m. EST today on MTV. While the album is available to download via iTunes and stream on all digital services, the physical copy won't hit shelves until March 25.
