2 Chainz has just released his fourth studio album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. The 16 song album is fueled with a huge amount of star power from hip-hop icons including Travis Scott, Drake, Pharrell, Nicki Minaj and more.

The albums title speaks to the normalization and popularity of trap music in todays mainstream culture, according to the Atlanta MC himself. "We're the pop stars. Trap rap is pop now. People's ears have adjusted to what we have to say and how we say it," he told Rolling Stone. On this new body of work, 2 Chainz devises an impressive compilation of songs that not only speak to true trap fans, but also those listening on the radio who may not be as well versed in the genre.

Prior to the album's release, the world got a taste of Pretty Girls Like Trap Music with four singles: "4 AM" featuring Travis Scott, "Big Amount," featuring Drake,"Good Drank" featuring Gucci Mane and Quavo, " and  "It's A Vibe" featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Jhené Aiko, and Trey Songz. 2 Chainz will begin touring the album later this summer.
