"It's been quite the journey to get here. All night studio sessions, reflecting, & opening up on these records or as I call it therapy!" 2 Chainz captioned behind the scenes footage of his studio chats with LeBron.
"This is my each one teach one body of work, I wanna celebrate black excellence! ..... 'Rap Or Go To The League' the album A&R by @kingjames 3/1".
In the accompanying clip, the rapper thanks the athlete for taking the time out of his hectic schedule to meet up in a Los Angeles studio.
"I know you're a busy man...," 2 Chainz tells his pal. "(I) think it'll be shocking to people to know how much input you had on (the album)."
Rap or Go to the League is the follow-up to his 2017 album, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.
