2 Chainz Set To Begin The Second Leg Of His Sold Out “Based On A T.R.U Story” National Solo Tour
New York, NY - October 13, 2012 -There is no denying that 2 Chainz is the hottest rapper in Hip Hop music, today. After a meteoric rise rarely seen in music, he has safely secured his spot on the top. His style and impact is quickly changing the landscape of music and you can’t help but hear a rendition of his infectious “2 Chaaainz”, or “ Tru” when ever his name is mentioned. What makes it all the more impressive is that it isn’t just hype. “Based On A T.R.U Story”, his first solo project with his now label Def Jam, landed on the Billboard charts at Number 1 it’s first week and has sold close to 500,00 copies. 2 Chainz most recently performed at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards along side long time friend and collaborator, Lil’ Wayne, and stole the show. In addition to his performance at the VMAs, he also took the stage at the BET Hip Hop Awards while taking home 4 trophies.
As he gears up to embark upon the second leg of the tour, which begins in Jacksonville, FL on November 23st, 2 Chainz had this to say about the experience “I never get tired of seeing, vibing, and sharing experiences with my fans. It's just me and them in an intimate setting, in a different city all over the country. We turn up and basically have a party in every city on stage. When the first half of the tour started the album had just dropped so I didn't know what to expect. Now that the album has been number 1 in the country, and every city has been sold out, I feel like the people enjoy what I bring to the table.”
2 Chainz embarked on a solo career in 2012, when he released Based on a T.R.U. Story, which featured the breakout single, "Birthday Song". The album quickly went Goldand was promoted by collaborations with artists like Kanye West, Ciara, and Lil' Wayne.
The rapper followed that up with his sophomore album, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time. While the album didn't match the fantastic commercial success of his previous album, it fared better with critics, who marked a more mature, professional progression in 2 Chainz's style.
