Pretty Girls Like Trap Music is the long-awaited follow-up to 2 Chainz 2013 full length solo effort, B.O.A.T.S. II: ME TIME. In the four years since his last solo album, 2 Chainz music and content output has been unstoppable. In 2016 alone he released three critically acclaimed mixtapes (“Felt Like Cappin,” “Daniel Son; Necklace Don,” and “Hibachi For Lunch”), teamed up with hip hop legend Lil Wayne for a mammoth collaboration album entitled ColleGrove (March 2016) and partnered with GQ Magazine for the third season of his smash web-series “Most Expensivest Sh!t.”
In 2017, 2 Chainz kicked off the year with his first Grammy Award® win for Best Rap Performance for his stellar verse on Chance The Rapper’s hit song “No Problem.” Just a few weeks before the Grammy Award® win, 2 Chainz announced the title of his forthcoming album, PRETTY GIRLS LIKE TRAP MUSIC, while taking over his hometown NBA team, the Atlanta Hawks, for the day.
Following his run as founding member of Def Jam duo Playaz Circle out of his native Atlanta, 2 Chainz’ name was on everyone’s lips in 2012, when he stole a verse on “Mercy,” fellow Def Jam artist Kanye West/G.O.O.D. Music’s RIAA triple-platinum #1 R&B/#1 Rap hit (from Cruel Summer). Four months later, Chainz arrived as a Def Jam solo artist with Based On A T.R.U.
Story, his debut album of August 2012. B.O.A.T.S. entered Soundscan at #1 and was certified RIAA gold, fueled by the RIAA platinum “No Lie” featuring Drake, the double-platinum “Birthday Song” featuring Kanye West, and double-platinum “I’m Different.” “Mercy” was subsequently a Grammy® nominee for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, while B.O.A.T.S. was nominated for Best Rap Album. Chainz followed up with B.O.A.T.S. II: ME TIME (September 2013), extending Chainz’ dominance, entering the Soundscan hip-hop chart at #1, and spinning off the RIAA gold single, “Feds Watching” featuring Pharrell.
