Back in August (which seems like an eternity ago), during his Verzuz battle with Rick Ross, 2 Chainz made it known he planned to follow up 2019’s Rap Or Go To The League with his next full-length album, So Help Me God.
Unfortunately, after kicking off the campaign with the Lil Wayne-assisted “Money Maker,” the ATLien was forced to push pause on the release.
Now, following a few delays after running into some sample clearance issues, Chainz has officially released the project. A 15-track release, the album comes equipped with features from Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, Brent Faiyaz, Lil Uzi Vert, Rick Ross, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and more. On the production side of things, there’ss contributions from Mike WiLL Made-It, Boi-1da, Chief Keef, TM88, StreetRunner, Cool & Dre, David Banner, Dem Jointz, and others.
On the artwork, Chainz had the following to say: “I know a lot of artists have used baby pictures and kid photos to tell their story or reveal their journey, but this one different! This is the 8th grade me, this was a proof pic, because, like many of us, we couldn’t afford to order the picture package. And yes, I had on two chains. I was an aspiring drug dealer and an occasional thief. When pop went to prison he told me if I steal, steal stuff I need and not want. If I could tell that person something today I would tell them don’t give up, times is hard, but they don’t last forever. SO HELP ME GOD.”
