As one half of Playaz Circle and a member of Ludacris‘ DTP squad, Tity Boi had been making...

2 Chainz – Trapavelli Tre (Mixtape)

Tity Boi is always cookin’ in the kitchen, and this time he churned up something fresh off the stove. Laced with 16 tracks, Trapavelli Tre is a trunk-rattling, street certified mixtape.

2 Chainz - Freebase EP

2 Chainz – Freebase EP

Admittedly, I’m not the biggest 2 Chainz fan. However, with featured verses from A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross, Lil Boosie, and Ty Dolla $ign, I had to give the Freebase EP at least one spin, and it didn’t disappoint. Tracks such as “Trap Back,” “FREEBASE,” “Wuda Cuda Shuda,” and “Crib in my Closet” seriously bump thanks to...
