2 Chainz spent the end of last year making millions off Christmas sweaters, and today, he dropped the video to "Watch Out," which proves him as one of the most Internet-savvy emcees of his generation. Still, fans are more than ready for a new album from Tity, as he hasn't dropped one since 2013's B.O.A.T.S. II.

Young Thug's Most Entertaining Lyrics
You might be thinking "Here we go, yet another dissection into the enigma that is Young Thug." But that's just the thing with Thugger.

Mike WiLL Made It Reveals Rae Sremmurd's "SremmLife 2" Is In The Works
Rae Sremmurd's SremmLife was a perfectly orchestrated album release in a broken system. While most rappers wait months or even years beyond the peak of their hype to drop their debut, the Sremm Bros were right on the money, and as a result, the album is still selling to this day (the fact that it was jam-packed with singles didn't hurt). While they've surely got a few more records to market from LP1, the follow-up is already underway according to mentor, Mike WiLL Made it.
