You’d be hard-pressed to find another rapper as hot as 2 Chainz. Over the past two years, the Atlanta-based MC has made a slew of guest appearances on songs by some of the industry’s biggest artists. So when 2 Chainz performed to a sellout crowd, fans were easily entertained by an assortment of songs on which he’s been featured, as well as tracks from his two solo efforts, Based on a T.R.U. Story and B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time. The audience sang along word for word with “I’m Different” and “Birthday Song,” while “Spend It” and the Kanye West/G.O.O.D. Music collaboration “Mercy” kept the energy and speaker levels high. ★★★☆☆
