2 Chainz is set to release his highly-anticipated new album So Help Me God this Friday, November 13th.
Ahead of the release day, the Hip-Hop artist took to Instagram to share the backstory of the cover art and picture of his younger self. In the post, he reflected on how as a 14-year-old, times were tough for him but nevertheless, shared some wise advice for his younger self.
