Catching Up with 2 Chainz, 2012-2013
The 2 Chainz edition of our "Catching Up" series exceeds the usual standards of catalog aggregations. It's not just because 2 Chainz was as prolific as Lil Wayne in the 12 or so months between Based on a T.R.U. Story and B.O.A.T.S. II #MeTime. The Atlanta rapper contributed to a remarkable number of rap hits, from A$AP Rocky's "F**kin' Problems" and Juicy J's "Bandz a Make Her Dance" to B.o.B's "Head Band" and Young Jeezy's "R.I.P." And, of course, he had a few big singles of his own, most recently with the Pharrell Williams-assisted "Feds Watching." There are 40 tracks and nearly three hours of music to sift through in this 2 Chainz deep dive.
