2 Chainz will release a new mixtape in early 2015. The project, Tru Jack City, will serve as a teaser for his upcoming studio album and double as an introduction to rising Atlanta artists.
“Top of the year is the rollout of the whole campaign with my third album in three years. And then I’ve got this mixtape called Tru Jack City. It’s my mixtape, but it’s for up-and-coming rappers in Atlanta,” revealed the rapper during an interview with Revolt TV.
“[The project is] real ratchet, it’s real street,” he continued. “It’s catered for the core. We’re a crew full of individuals. It’s one thing about TRU. It’s about being the real you. We just putting on. We got something to bring to the table and we got something to say.”
The compilation will reportedly include contributions from Young Dolph, Cap 1, Peewee Longway, Travis Porter, Skooly, Short Dawg and Bankroll Fresh.
The Atlanta-based star also said he will go on tour with Drake in February. The five-date trek will take the two, who have worked together on several singles, through Australia.
Earlier this month, Chainz announced plans to release a capsule collection with denim brand PRPS for fans lucky enough to have an extra $600-$1,200 to spend on jeans. “Basically PRPS is a brand that I organically just wore on my own. I thought they were the best denim made, especially for what I do and how I kick it onstage,” the rapper told MTV News.
