“This B.O.A.T.S. II is definitely gonna be the album of the year! The sounds are so fresh and full of energy – perfect for waking up to, riding on the road to, and of course partying to,” says Drumma. “Me and 2 Chainz were in the studio, and when he heard the beat I made he just zoned out into a quiet mumble. He just started coming up with the lyrics straight off the top of the head and after about 10 minutes or so he was in the booth, and we had ‘U Da Realist.'”
“U Da Realist” is dedicated to one of 2 Chainz friends who passed away. The song will appear on the album along with the lead single “Feds Watching” and the Drake and Lil Wayne collaboration “I Do It.”

Drumma Boy has also worked with Wayne recently. The Tennessee native produced the track “Still Got That Rock” off Wayne’s Dedication 5 mixtape.
“I bumped into Lil Wayne recently at the Memphis Grizzlies’ game during the playoffs,” says Drumma. “When he was walking out I told him ‘I still got that crack,’ because every time I bump into him I say that, ‘I got that crack for you,’ so he told me to send it. I did, and the result became the joint ‘Still Got That Rock’.”
2 Chainz’s B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time will be released September 10th. Lil Wayne’s Dedication 5 is available now via datpiff.com. Drumma Boy is scheduled to appear on the September 17th episode of MTV 2’s Wild N’ Out with Machine Gun Kelly.
