The Def Jam rapper explained that B.O.A.T.S II: #METime would be the ultimate record to self-reflect to, or gain some ‘me time’ as 2 Chainz calls it. Self-indulgent it certainly is, and we would expect nothing less from 2 Chainz, considering his swag and confidence.

Hip-hop and professional sports are more similar than you might think. Both fields are competitive, exciting, and allow for great debates.

Here at HotNewHipHop we advocate people getting "Turnt Up!" Sometimes it's going to the club and wildin' out more than usual, getting amped up before a basketball game, or just going nuts in your bedroom listening to big tunes.
