2 Chainz sat down with Civil TV to discuss his upcoming album, B.O.A.T.S. 2: Me Time. Sharing his experiences working with producers DJ Toomp and Mannie Fresh, the rapper explained his motivations behind creating the Based On A Tru Story sequel.

“The reason that I made B.O.A.T.S. 2 a sequel of B.O.A.T.S. 1 is because the acronym actually means ‘Based On A Tru Story’ and I feel like [the] majority of my musical content is based off of real life and true stories,” he said.

Chainz also spoke about being a Grammy nominated artist and the importance of being recognized across genres. He attributed his success to consistency, hard work and great expectations.

“Over the years I think I put out a few hit records. I’ve been consistent,” he told Civil TV. “And for me the formula hasn’t changed. I work hard and I expect good results.”

The rapper also talked acting and his recent legal troubles. Check out the interview here.

B.O.A.T.S. 2: Me Time will be available on Sept. 10.
