Slightly ahead of schedule, here we have the latest and perhaps most anticipated (so far, anyway) single from 2 Chainz‘s debut album, Based On A T.R.U. Story with “Birthday Song.” Despite some initial confusion surrounding the track and its release, the ingredients haven’t been tampered with at all, as the measures of bass, slick rhymes and alpha dog confidence sit aloft.
The track marks 2 Chainz and Kanye West‘s second collaboration of 2012, following their shared appearance on G.O.O.D. Music‘s “Mercy”, and is further evidence of the rapport between the two emcees. It’s only a matter of time before they make the Codeine Cowboy G.O.O.D. official, right?
Stream “Birthday Song” below and look for the dirty version to hit the iTunes store at midnight tonight (July 24th). Based On A T.R.U. Story is expected out August 14th.
