“Quarantine Thick” follows up "Money Maker" featuring Lil Wayne, released on August 7th. 2 Chainz previewed the song the night before, during his Verzuz webcast battle with Rick Ross, where the two Kings of the South celebrated their legacies and iconic catalogues.
SO HELP ME GOD is the long-awaited follow-up to Rap Or Go To The League (released March 2019), described as 2 Chainz’ most personal, most lyrical, most soulful record to date. A&R’d by LeBron James, Rap Or Go To The League spun off two smashes: the MTV VMA-nominated "Rule The World" featuring Ariana Grande, which boasts over 22 million YouTube views to date; and the RIAA platinum “Bigger Than You” featuring Drake and Quavo with over 62 million combined YouTube views to date.
Rap Or Go To The League was 2 Chainz’ first new studio album since Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, his RIAA gold #1 release of 2017. That LP netted over 2 billion streams after racking up three consecutive RIAA multi-platinum hits: "4 AM"featuring Travis Scott; “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Jhené Aiko; and “Good Drank” featuring Quavo and Gucci Mane.
In addition to music, 2 Chainz’ wildly popular tv show Most Expensivest on VICELAND wrapped up its third season in 2019 with 20 new episodes; view the series trailer HERE. His “Chain Reaction” sneaker collaboration with Versace hit stores in the spring 2018, and was their most popular shoe of the year. Chainz’ cannabis brand, GAS Cannabis Co. is available throughout California HERE. And he starred with Adam Scott in the 2019 Super Bowl LIII Expensify tv spot, “the world’s first Super Bowl commercial you can expense.”
ABOUT 2 CHAINZ:
Following his run as a founding member of Def Jam duo Playaz Circle from his native Atlanta, 2 Chainz’ name was on everyone’s lips in 2012, when he stole a verse on “Mercy,” fellow Def Jam artist Kanye West/G.O.O.D. Music’s RIAA triple-platinum #1 R&B/#1 Rap hit (from Cruel Summer). In August 2012, Chainz arrived as a Def Jam solo artist with Based On A T.R.U. Story, his debut album. B.O.A.T.S. entered Soundscan at #1 and was certified RIAA gold. Its success was fueled by the RIAA platinum #1 “No Lie” featuring Drake, the double-platinum “Birthday Song” featuring Kanye West, and double-platinum “I’m Different.” “Mercy” was subsequently a Grammy® nominee for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, while B.O.A.T.S.was nominated for Best Rap Album. Chainz’ dominance was extended when the sequel, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time entered the Soundscan hip-hop chart at #1 in September 2013, and spun off the RIAA gold single, “Feds Watching” featuring Pharrell.
In 2016, Chainz brought it back to his essence with a series of mixtapes that dominated the streets: Felt Like Cappin, Daniel Son; Necklace Don, and Hibachi For Lunch. Also in 2016, he released the lauded collaborative album ColleGrovewith New Orleans hip-hop luminary Lil Wayne. Critics agreed that 2 Chainz conquered 2016, with the New York Times proclaiming “all hail our greatest punch line rapper, 2 Chainz.” The year was capped off with his first Grammy Award, Best Rap Performance for his verse on Chance The Rapper’s hit song “No Problem.”
With momentum on his side, 2 Chainz released his first solo album since 2013: Pretty Girls Like Trap Music (June 2017) was accompanied by a 35-city tour of North America through September. Chainz’ TV appearances included visits with Jimmy Kimmel (HERE), Jimmy Fallon (HERE), and Trevor Noah (HERE). 2018 brought the EP releases The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It (February, with the RIAA gold “Proud”featuring YG and Offset), and Hot Wings Are A Girl’s Best Friend (November). Rap Or Go To The League, arrived March 2019, and included three multi-platinum hits: "4 AM" featuring Travis Scott; “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Jhené Aiko; and “Good Drank” featuring Quavo and Gucci Mane. Chainz foresaw covid’s new normal on his January 2020 single + video release, "Dead Man Walking" featuring Future. November 2020 marked the release of So Help Me God, Chainz’ sixth studio album via Def Jam, containing the singles "Money Maker"featuring Lil Wayne and “Quarantine Thick” featuring Mulatto.
Chainz’ impact on popular culture encompasses not only music but his Most Expensivest cable tv series on VICELAND, his “Chain Reaction” sneaker collaboration with Versace, his GAS Cannabis Co. brand, and his 2019 Super Bowl LIII Expensify tv spot with Adam Scott. TheRinger.com was inspired to write: “Forget Mount Rushmore – 2 Chainz deserves his own national monument. This year dude is top five humans of all time.”
