After a year of high profile guest features and a major record deal with G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam, 2 Chainz will finally deliver his solo debut Based On a T.R.U. Story. Now, in a recent interview with Billboard, 2 Chainz discuss the creation of his LP’s cover art that dropped earlier this week.
2 Chainz said that the first person he looked to when preparing his debut’s cover, which was shot by photographer Fabien Montique, was Kanye West and his DONDA art house. He added that this collaboration DONDA won’t his last – he’s also seeking their help in enhancing his live show.
“Kanye and I share a similar vision and think along the same lines creatively. So, when it came time to develop the imagery for my project, I trusted him and his team at DONDA to get the job done and communicate my sentiments,” he explained. “They were the first people I thought of. Their team is unprecedented. Expect next level imagery, sonics and stage performance. This is curated art. The Louvre of rap.”
Based On a T.R.U. Story drops this August 14.
