2 Chainz Enlists Kanye West’s DONDA For Album Art

Def Jam rapper 2 Chainz will be releasing his debut solo album, entitled Based On A T.R.U. Story on August 14. Earlier in the week, the official album artwork was released. The cover is simple; 2 Chainz wears two chains on the cover art.

For the album artwork, 2 Chainz got very creative, with the help of Kanye West. The album cover was shot by photographer Fabien Montique for DONDA (Kanye West’s design house which is also named after his late mother, Donda West).

“Kanye and I share a similar vision and think along the same lines creatively. So, when it came time to develop the imagery for my project, I trusted him and his team at DONDA to get the job done and communicate my sentiments,” 2 Chainz told Billboard.com. “They were the first people I thought of. Their team is unprecedented. Expect next level imagery, sonics and stage performance. This is curated art. The Louvre of rap.“
