The first single from 2 Chainz’ Def Jam debut Based on a T.R.U. Story is the Drake-featuring “No Lie.” For a track that’s 2 Chainz’ on the package, there’s a lot of Drake on this one – he sings the choruses, raps a verse or two, and sounds pretty good doing it. As for Chainz himself, however – well, he’s as eccentric as ever, which is to say his delivery is mainly made up of weirdly shouted, hashtag-laden verses. He’s been championed by everyone from Yeezy to Weezy to Drizzy, but we can’t truthfully say we’re sold on Chainz just yet. Check out the track and remember the rest of Based on a T.R.U. Story drops August 14.
New: 2 Chainz & Drake – “No Lie”
Raekwon, Killer Mike, Pusha T, Danny Brown, YG, Action Bronson, Young Thug, and more show up.
He also makes a quick cameo as a detective.
“Bubs” is a collaboration with PC Music’s A.G. Cook.
Another new track to follow up last week’s “A Kick To The Face.”
Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
From his still-unannounced new album, featuring Thundercat, Bilal and production from Astronote.
With help from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and an amazing piano.
