The first person that 2 Chainz thought to go to when seeking creative ideas for the cover art for his debut album, Based On a T.R.U. Story, was G.O.O.D. Music leader Kanye West and his DONDA art house.  2 Chainz opened up to Billboard during a recent interview, and explained how he and Kanye share the same creative way of thinking and how they put their heads together to create his debut album cover art.

"Kanye and I share a similar vision and think along the same lines creatively. So, when it came time to develop the imagery for my project, I trusted him and his team at DONDA to get the job done and communicate my sentiments.  They were the first people I thought of. Their team is unprecedented. Expect next level imagery, sonics and stage performance. This is curated art. The Louvre of rap."
