2 Chainz and Lil Wayne’s ‘Collegrove’ Gets Release Date and Cover Art
“New project with 2 Chainz and Wayne dropping this Friday,” read the tweet by West with a photo of the cover art. Billboard also confirmed that this is indeed for Collegrove and not another project between the three rappers.
The artwork, which is rumored to be created by ‘Ye’s creative house, DONDA, shows Tity Boi’s face with Weezy’s infamous face tattoos. The name draws inspiration from matching up the two artists as well as it’s based on hometowns — Weezy is from Hollygrove in New Orleans, LA and Chainz is from College Park, Georgia.
While the project itself has been in the works for months, this won’t be the first time that the two have collaborated. They’ve appeared on the songs “Yuck,” “Duffie Bag Boy” and “Rich as F—” together. They also performed a new track, “Rolls Royce Weather Everyday” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon two weeks ago. The song is slated to appear on the forthcoming mixtape.
2 Chainz discussed the project in an interview with Rap Radar‘s podcast back in November. In it, he mentioned that it would be out “sooner than people think.”
And now we know when. Are you excited for the project? Do you think it’ll be a good collaboration? Let us know what you think in the comments and check out the artwork above. Also, see Yeezy’s tweet below.
