Kanye West is playing the role of e-town crier/hypeman on social media, it appears. On Wednesday morning, Yeezy used his Twitter account to announce, “New project with 2 Chainz and Wayne dropping this Friday,” and shared the artwork for the project, as well.
The album’s title is a merger of the two rappers’ respective hometown neighborhoods — College Park and Hollygrove. The accompanying cover, which looks like a DONDA creation, captures Tity Boi’s face scribbled with Weezy’s highly recognizable tattoos. The collab has been in the works for some time now with both MCs popping up on each other’s releases over the years. In mid-February, they premiered a new track titled “Rolls Royce Weather Everyday” on The Tonight Show.
While Wayne’s been quiet on the musical tip due to his legal troubles with Cash Money, 2 Chainz’s is starting to heat back up after falling quiet for a while. He dropped Trap-A-Velli Tre back in August of last year and released his Felt Like Cappin’ EP in January. Lil Wayne was featured on the latter project for the track “Back on the Bullshyt.”
