2 Chainz – So Help Me God
2 Chainz has finally released his So Help Me God LP, which was postponed a few times in 2020. The T.R.U. boss makes up for the delays by stacking the album with guests such as Lil Wayne, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Lil Uzi Vert, Mulatto, Rick Ross, Kevin Gates and Kanye West, among others.
