From 2 Chainz, we can be sure to expect some heat, with throwbacks like “I’m Different” and his rendition of the Birthday Song featuring Kanye West. But while he packs a few solo tracks, he’ll surely bring in some of his notable feature work, from tracks like Kanye’s stacked track “Mercy”, to Lil Wayne’s “Rich as F**k”. Yeah, Chainz’s bag is deep.
