2 Chainz and Pusha T will hit the road together in 2014. The "2 Good to Be T.R.U." tour – which draws its name from 2 Chainz' recent albums Based on a T.R.U. Story and B.O.A.T.S. II #Me Time – will begin in February and run until late March, spanning arenas and theaters across North America.

Hanging Backstage With 2 Chainz, 2013's Hottest Southern Rapper

2 Chainz gets philosophical about the trek in a press release. "The best way to describe my tour is to reference a quote from Niccolo Machiavelli, author of The Prince, who once said, 'Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are,'" he says. "2 G.O.O.D. 2 Be T.R.U." The rapper previously hinted at a new tour last month during a red-carpet interview at the 2013 American Music Awards: "Be looking out for more progression and prosperity," he said. "I believe in growth and development."

The rapper's current tour hit a speed bump back in September, when police in Oklahoma discovered a host of weapons (a 12-gauge pump shotgun, two semi-automatic pistols, a partial box of ammunition) and drugs (prescription and unprescribed painkillers and marijuana residue) on his tour bus. 2 Chainz and 10 others were arrested after a nine-hour standoff; they were charged with obstructing a police officer and were released after paying $2,000 apiece in bail.

2 Chainz blasted the cops in an interview with Rolling Stone. "It's something that, essentially, a public defender could beat," he said. "I could actually take myself to trial for a lot of this shit. . . I don't want to waste the taxpayers' money on this. Because, guess what? I pay a fucking lot of taxes!"

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
