2 Chainz is fully aware he has a new hit on his hands, as his new song “Can’t Go For That” is receiving the MVP treatment. Fresh off the release of his new So Help Me God! album, 2 Chainz performed the single on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and now gifts fans with a groovy new video for the song. The track features Ty Dolla $ign and Lil Duval, with 2 Chainz sliding over a sample of the classic “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” by Hall & Oates:

Doin’ such a good job, I pat myself on the back. Flight confirmation, I cash through the app. Ain’t nobody robbin’ me, I answer doors with a strap. Anywhere I go, I put Southside on the map. Shawty said she love me, I said, “I love me back.” Try to cuss me out, I ain’t goin’ for that. A n***a said he want my plugs so they can order the packs. But I’m addicted to the trap.

Before the album dropped, 2 Chainz presented “Quarantine Thick” featuring Mulatto to get fans prepped. He also recently made an appearance alongside DaBaby on Kanye West’s remix of “Nah Nah Nah.” The Atlanta rapper released his last full length solo project Rap Or Go To The League back in 2019, which saw features from Marsha Ambrosius, Young Thug, Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper, and more. This year, he dropped off his collab project with T.R.U. titled No Face No Case in February.

In a recent interview, 2 Chainz explained the multiple meanings behind his So Help Me God album title:

“Obviously, it’s an oath that people take when they are in a high office. And so for me, one of the oaths that I would like to take this year, especially since we’ve been in such a fucking trashy year, it’s to come out of it being a better husband, father, friend, musician, and artist, all around the board. But at the same time, So Help Me God could be like a threat. Like, I know I’m one of the illest to do this, “so help me God.” It has two meanings to let people know that you should be a little concerned... When it comes to this music, and putting together these projects, and coming up with concepts, and marketing ideas, me and my team are some of the best ones to ever do it.”
