2 Chainz’s new album Dope Don’t Sell Itself arrived on Friday (February 4) and the project has been getting all sorts of reactions from fans. There’s one person who’s praising the album and calling it an instant classic, though.
On Sunday (February 6), Drink Champs host N.O.R.E. took to social media to voice his appreciation for 2 Chainz’s new album. The first round of clips started when N.O.R.E. was posted up in his new Maybach playing the album at loud levels.
He then recorded himself speaking on the album and how no one wanted to inform him that 2 Chainz dropped a “classic” album.
“A n-gga said Toni made a classic… a classic!” N.O.R.E. said. “Not one of y’all hatin’ muthafuckas told me that Toni made a muthafuckin’ classic! 2 Chainz album [a] classic. I’ma go on the road and say that, and I’ma back this shit up.
“2 Chainz ain’t even do Drink Champs, but I’m telling you, when the props is due, the props is due. Good fucking work!”

2 Chainz’s seventh solo LP and “last trap album,” Dope Don’t Sell Itself clocks in at 12 tracks with features from Lil Baby, NBA YoungBoy, Lil Durk, Moneybagg Yo, Roddy Ricch, 42 Dugg and more. Meanwhile, production comes from the likes of Hit-Boy, Mannie Fresh and Buddah Bless.
Despite the star-studded supporting cast and N.O.R.E.’s high praise, Dope Don’t Sell Itself hasn’t been met with such rapturous applause by everyone. HipHopDX gave the album a 2.5 out of 5 score, describing it as a project “laced with traphouse fetishes that lost their thrill.”
