– 2 Chainz was a big hit this week. His album “Based On A T.R.U. Story” is set to drop on Tuesday, but it has already leaked on you-tube. The album is DOPE, for real. He got tracks with The Dream, Mike Posner, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Wayne, John Legend, Drake. The album is better than I thought actually and apparently someone else thought so too because 2 Chainz has landed a worldwide publishing deal. 2 Chainz will give the company, Reservoir Media, the rights to his 200-plus song catalog, including the songs on the album dropping on Tuesday. This means 2 Chainz is about to get some heavy royalty dollars real soon for his music.
– In other bossman moves, Young Jeezy is now the Senior VP of A&R for Atlantic Records. Everyone is getting bossed up. I’m lovin it! Jeezy tweeted “From the trap to the world to grammy nominations to the boardroom my n—a.”
– Beyonce is in the studio working on her 5th album and Weezy plans on dropping his “Dedication 4” mixtape next week.
