2 Chainz—real name Tauheed Epps—has finally dropped his much-anticipated fifth studio album, Rap or Go to the League.
The 14-track LP features an extensive list of guest artists, including Marsha Ambrosius, Young Thug, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, E-40, Kodak Black and Chance the Rapper. Ty Dolla $ign also appears on the record, on the previously released track, “Girl’s Best Friend.” The Georgia native also got Ariana Grande to return the favor on “Rule the World,” after he showed up for the remix of her hit single, “7 Rings,” where they put a potential feud to rest.
On top of the impressive catalog of features, basketball superstar and Olympic gold medalist LeBron James also served as A&R for the project. “As longtime friends and fans of one another, 2 Chainz and LeBron represent the true intersection of music and sports,” said a recent press release.
“It’s been quite the journey to get here and I know I’ve kept y’all waiting long enough,” Tity Boi wrote on Instagram. “All night studio sessions, dialing in, reflecting & opening up on these records or as I call it therapy! This is my each one teach one body of work, I wanna celebrate black excellence!”
Rap or Go to the League is Epps’ first album since 2017’s Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. He previously dropped the EPs The Play Don’t Care Who Makes it and Hot Wings are a Girl’s Best Friend in February and November last year, respectively.
