The song is the first official single from 2 Chainz’s debut album Based on a T.R.U. Story. On the record, Drake provides the chorus and a verse.
“I say F** ya unless I’m with ya/ If I take you outta the picture/ I know real N*** don’t miss you…”
He follows-up with a rap verse that begins with tough talk and big money references before turning to sex and one-night stands.
“2 Chainz and champaigne you want T.R.U., thats true enough/ Forbes list like every year, my office is my tour bus/…She could have a Grammy but I treat that ass like a nominee/ Just need to know what that [redacted] feels like/ One time is fine with me…”
Listen to “No Lie” here:
2 Chainz, who is also serving in an A&R capacity for Ludacris‘ upcoming Ludaversal album, announced that he would be joining Drake on the Club Paradise tour in March. He’s appeared on Nicki Minaj’s new single “Beez in the Trap” and Kanye West’s “Mercy.”
The latter created excitement about the possibility of an official collaboration–or signing–with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music. When asked if he would sign to G.O.O.D. Music for his debut solo album, he didn’t rule it out.
“We’ll just have to see,” he told CBS Local. “I do still like that element of surprise. That’s what makes hip-hop fun to me.”
When will he break the secret?
“That’s the thing about surprises,” he continued. “Can’t have a surprise party if you know about it, right?”
2 Chainz’s album Based on a T.R.U. Story is set to hit stores August 14. –Erik Parker, CBS Local
