As we told you earlier today, 2 Chainz sat down with MTV recently to talk about his new album, Based On A T.R.U. Story, that hits stores on August 14. And, in the interview, he says that his solo debut could have served as the soundtrack for LeBron James' 2011-12 NBA season.

"Based On A T.R.U. Story can be the soundtrack for maybe what LeBron James went through," he explains. "Being in a situation, thinking you're gonna be in a situation, striving in that situation, struggling in that situation, having faith like, 'Let me try this again, but just do it in a different way'…and then getting good results. I feel like it's a soundtrack for a championship team, a soundtrack for somebody that's winning or going through ups and downs."

Too bad the album didn't come out about a year ago, eh, Bron? Oh well. You managed.
