After releasing his The Play Don't Care Who Makes It EP earlier this month, 2 Chainz has announced his fifth studio album, Rap or Go to the League, the full-length follow up to last year's Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.
He shared the news officially last night at Def Jam’s NBA All-Star party and even had the blimp in tow, according to HipHop-N-More. Today he took to social media to share it with everyone else. With a minute-long video, the rapper hints at a particularly political album that builds on the idea of the limited options black people are told they have for success. The short video finds him in an open field, kneeling in front of a large blimp displaying the album's title.
The rapper goes on to explain the album's title in further detail. "It's kind of my version of black excellence, because in my community, we were often told the only way that we could get out of the circumstances we were put in," he said. 2 Chainz went on to point out that Atlanta artists were among the first to use grand marketing tactics like billboards, while noting the grandness of his own strategy. "It's all about next level genius ideas," he said. "What better marketing tool besides a floating billboard?"
There aren't any details yet about the project's release date, but 2 Chainz almost never stops working, so it's likely not that far off.
