Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz is reminding fans his one-time popular “Tity Boi” rap alias is a thing of the past with the new release of his upcoming Based On A T.R.U. Story II: Me Time cover art.
Rather than show off his signature dreadlocks or shades, Deuce promptly displays two chains on his sophomore album’s artwork.
Awww man, its almost time for 2 Chainz to get the clubs hyped again as he gears up to drop his new album, B.O.A.T.S II: Me Time. Today the ATLien is back with the cover art for his upcoming album, which is another example in simplistic beauty. The cover features nothing but two large link necklaces, zoomed in upon, and shining in all their glory. You may recall his debut album cover which featured only two chains, fittingly, well this is much of the same. The project drops on September 10th, so get your sharpie out and mark the calendar.

Last month, the Atlanta rapper revealed plans to include a recipe book with his LP.
“I’m cool enough to be comfortable in my own skin and try to educate people — so with this cookbook I’m going to have probably about 14-15 meals, how many ever songs it is,” Chainz revealed in an interview. “It’s going to tell you whatever was used to make this as far as ingredients and cooking time and all that stuff. And probably the pros and cons of eating it. … I’m a seafood lover I don’t eat beef or pork period. So turkey, chicken that’s in a lot of the recipes I use. … A lot of people use DVDs bonus stuff like that. I just want to come probably with my own little array of swag aprons with the cookbook. That will probably get me on The View or something like that.” (“The MidNite Mixx”)
Earlier this summer, Chainz said the project is finished and would have around 14 to 15 tracks.
“No that’s pretty much done. I’m just finishing up the mixing. I’m adding a few samples, taking away a few samples. I’m still arranging the album too and also getting the credits right to make that side of the business is taken care of. [Who’s on the album?] I’m not telling you. … Actually, I will tell you I got Pharrell on there.” (Village Voice)
He recently broke down the meaning behind his new album’s title.
“Me Time has multiple meanings. I feel like my music actually gives people a sense of going away sometimes — without really going on vacation,” Chainz told MTV News backstage on Saturday at his show-stopping performance at Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash concert in Atlanta. “I feel like when people listen to me, they feel like they’re goin’ somewhere, taking time off; they’re relaxing, lettin’ their hair down,” the dreadlocked MC said reflectively. “Every time somebody wants to have some ‘me time’ or whatever, this is the type of vibe, this is the type of project [to listen to]. I’m putting together different sounds to make people be like, ‘This is about me. Me and my people, this is our time.'” (MTV)
Based On A T.R.U. Story 2: Me Time is slated for release on September 10.
