News: 2 Chainz Debuts at #1

August 21, 2012 1 comment

It seems congrats are in order for a certain Tity Tauheed. According to Hits Daily Double, 2 Chainz’s debut album, Based on a T.R.U. Story, has debuted at the top of the Billboard charts with 145,809 units sold. The album, which is the rapper’s first #1, is the third number one album for Island Def Jam this month after Nas and Rick Ross also debuted atop the charts.

Don’t think the recent news is going to slow Tity down though. The rapper, who recently released a video for the Nicki Minaj-assisted “I Luv Dem Strippers,” is gearing up for a solo tour to support the album’s release. He recently spoke about the upcoming concerts saying, “One of the things I enjoy the most about being an artist is the opportunity to get on the stage and give the fans everything they deserve. Everything they’ve come to expect from me. I’ve performed alongside some of the best in this business, but this time will be something special. This time it’s all me.”

Did you buy 2 Chainz’s album?

P.S. This is probably the only time removing the “Tity” will net someone an accomplishment.
