(Nov. 16, 2018 – New York, NY) 2 Chainz, the multi-platinum, Grammy Award®-winning MC, “One of the Very Best Rappers Alive” (Noisey), host of Viceland’s Most Expensivest series and one of the most-in-demand collaborators in the game – returns with Hot Wings Are A Girl’s Best Friend,a brand-new two-song bundle comprised of “Hot Wings” and “Girl’s Best Friend” out today on Def Jam Recordings.

2 Chainz’ new bundle is his first new music since The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It (released in February). The surprise unannounced 4-song EP spun off the RIAA gold-selling viral track, “Proud” featuring YG and Offset, which has over 100 million streams to date. Pitchfork’s extended-length rave review of EP was effusive in its praise: “On his reflective four-song EP, the Atlanta rapper’s hallmark frivolity and infinite swag keep it short and sweet… An artist who has fully stepped up and into his moment (again) without becoming too self-serious … The ultimate embodiment of Atlanta rap, he’s old enough to have witnessed the forging of its building blocks but maintains the youthful spirit of an ever-changing genre.” The new bundle acts as the prelude to 2 Chainz’s eagerly awaited new album Rap Or Go To The League.
Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, Chainz’ most recent long-player (June 2017), has amassed over 1.3 billion streams and spun off a trio of consecutive RIAA multi-platinum rap/R&B/pop crossover hit singles: “Good Drank” featuring Quavo and Gucci Mane; “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Jhené Aiko; and “4 AM” featuring Travis Scott. Collectively, videos for the three have netted over 230 million combined YouTube views to date.
In addition to music, Chainz’ cultural influence continues to grow. In August, his wildly popular TV show Most Expensivest was greenlit by VICELAND for a third season, 20 new episodes starting in 2019; view the series trailer HERE. Chainz’ sneaker collaboration with Versace called “Chain Reaction” hit stores this past spring and is their most popular shoe of the year. Most recently, in October, 2 Chainz launched his own cannabis brand, GAS Cannabis Co available now throughout California HERE.
