In the interim period between B.O.A.T.S. II and B.O.A.T.S. III, while you were dodging the NSA to “Feds Watching” or marveling at the time he wore the same pants as Grimes, 2 Chainz was putting together a new, seven-track EP that features the kind of zeitgeist-capturing guest list most rappers wish they could get spread out over two records. Featuring help from A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross, Lil Boosie, and Ty Dolla $ign, as well as production assistance from Mike WiLL Made It and Young Chop, it’s a star-studded affair. Check it out.
