At midnight today (Mar. 1), 2 Chainz dropped his new album Rap Or Go To The League.
The project is the former college basketball player’s fifth studio album, which features Marsha Ambrosius, Young Thug, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, TY Dolla $ign, Lil Wayne, E-40, Chance The Rapper, and Kodak Black.
It also features production from Wondergurl, 9th Wonder, Buddah Bless, Dem Jointz, Mike Dean, Pharrell, and Mike Will.
Los Angeles Lakers player Lebron James A&R’d the project that Chainz says celebrates black excellence and focuses on the power of education and entrepreneurship.
The Atlanta rapper also said in a press release that the album title “challenges the notion that the only way out of the inner city is either to become a rapper or a ball player.”
