The rapper revealed in a recent interview that West originally wanted to fully produce his upcoming album So Help Me God, however, there was a problem with the record label. “He wanted to do the whole project, but I’m dealing with trying to get out of my contract with Def Jam,” he explained. “He’s been someone that’s been loudly voicing contracts and things of that nature. He’s still going to produce an album for me, and we’re still going back and forth, but it’s just the time of me wanting to put it out and be done, because he has a thousand things going on in his place.”
2 Chainz further confirmed that Ye is still involved in the creation of So Help Me God, even if it’s not in the extent the YEEZY founder hoped for. ”Originally, he’s been talking about doing every song. We just have to come up with something that works for both of us, because his time and my time is just different. But let it be known that it’s going to happen, whether it’s this next project or the one after. It’s a whole Tity Boi and Kanye West project, produced by Kanye. Let’s just say that,” he continued.
In addition to a solo album, fans have been looking for a follow-up to 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne‘s ColleGrove project. The College Park artist revealed that ColleGrove 2 is “almost done,” and that he plans on dropping both the joint album and So Help Me God this year. ”I’m not going to say it’s not going to happen, but we’re still trying to go back…We might have to do one or two more songs. But we have been actively working on that project the whole COVID,” he said. “Me and Wayne, we have tons of fun…It’s this friendly competition. It’s to stay up on your toes. It’s a slaying war, a delivery war. It’s just so fun. So be looking out for ColleGrove, if not the end of this year, definitely the top of next year.”
