Today (Nov. 17), 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne unveiled Welcome 2 Collegrove, a continuation of 2016’s ColleGrove. The longtime collaborators’ latest effort consists of 21 songs with appearances from 50 Cent, 21 Savage, Usher, Fabolous, Benny The Butcher, Vory, Rick Ross and Marsha Ambrosius. The project was led by the singles “Presha” and “Long Story Short.”
In addition to the album, fans can also check out a new video for the Usher-assisted “Transparency,” a Hitmaka, Paul Cabbin, Tarik Beatz, Fridayy and Mike Dean-produced effort that sees the artists spitting game to a special someone. “She said, ‘It’s so hard to reach’ / Don’t know what you’re really lookin’ for / Tell me if you need to / Tell me I’m the one you’re lookin’ for / Don’t wanna be a secret / Transparency, when you look at me / You know I can teach you / Teach you everything, show you everything,” Usher crooned on the song’s hook.
In the latest episode of “Young Money Radio,” Weezy spoke on working with his Atlanta counterpart to create the aforementioned project. “The way me and 2 Chainz work is, it’s like water. You know what I mean?” the New Orleans veteran stated on his Apple Music show. “Just like water. It just flows. So it wasn’t too much of a process other than getting songs cleared and stuff like that.”
He continued, “I mean, the making of the album, like you said, it’s just still sharp and still we both respect each other’s craft. We both love each other’s craft. That’s another thing. We both love each other’s craft… I love to hear him. He love to hear me. And it been that way. So that’s very important about the whole creative part of it.”
