Weezin' And Chainin'!

2 Chainz & Lil' Wayne release a collaboration album.

Damn new music this month from the hip-hop veterans.

Another surprise album release and an unexpected rap collaboration!  Def Jam and Young Money released the "Collegrove" album from 2 Chainz and Lil' Wayne. 

The album comes fresh off the surprise release from Kendrick Lamar who titled the album "untitled and unmastered."

The album features production from Lil' C, Metro Boomin', Mannie Fresh, Honorable C-N.O.T.E., Zaytoven, London on da Track, Mike Will Made It, Southside Sizzle, and Mike Dean.
The title comes from each rapper's hometown. 2 Chainz is from College Park, Georgia and Lil Wayne's from Hollygrove, a neighborhood in New Orleans. 2 Chainz spoke on album in an interview with Forbes. "As far as the ColleGrove project, I really feel like the music is tight and accessible. Wayne has always been one of my favorite rappers. We’re just doing some mixing and trying to grind up. Just know that ColleGrove is coming very soon, and it’s going to be filled with entertainment bars, great sounds, great vibes.

Lil' Wayne's second album release since the dispute with Cash Money Records heated up. Lil' Wayne has a truce with his label. Bryan "Birdman" and Ronald "Slim" Williams have tentatively worked an agreement with Weezy. But the tension exist and the rapper is still hoping to release Tha Carter V.

Back in the hey day, 2 Chainz born Tauheed Epps once was known as Tity Boi, a member of the Playaz Circle. The rapper once was affiliated with Ludacris and his label Disturbing Tha Peace Records. Ludacris and 2 Chainz had a fallout and he had left the label. He signed a contractual deal with Def Jam to release his albums.

2 Chainz streamed the album on "ColleGrove Radio" on Beats 1 with DJ Drama, DJ E-Sudd, DJ Self and Mannie Fresh. The same day, 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne reveal a teaser for the video of "Bounce".
