Tity Boi began the year capitalizing on timely dabbing Christmas sweaters. From there he began spitting some of the most furious, energizing, and ignorant bars of the year. You can hear the seasoning, the passion, and definitely the fun. On 2 Chainz and Wayne’s collaborative project “COLLEGROVE” a discussion takes place.

The soulful production and feel good spirts make the track addictive and delightful. 2 Chainz and Wayne make duo memorable appearances as they elevate the song into the stratosphere. 2 Chainz lunges onto the track in a spree of dope ass, ignorant, and creative bars. He gives insight of his thoughts, passions, dab sessions with God, and hilariously calls out people wearing fake “Yeezys”. Tity Boi laces the track with several charismatic and quotable lines.

What a line up, so many talented artist and good music all on one song. Everyone stepped up and knocked it out the park on this one. However, 2 Chainz took it to another level. 2 Chainz desires and veteran status rips through Ye and Travis’s blaring horns and knocking 808’s. 2 Chainz went bar for bar with every artist on the track.

Atlanta captains Jeezy, Future, and 2 Chainz bring it all back to the A where much of this Atlanta magic began. 2 Chainz flow takes it down dirty south memory lane. His lethargic, arrogance, and stuttered cadence pulls you up to Magic City’s parking lot. There seems to be no end to the melodies and flows that 2 Chainz can accurately use, create, and execute.
