“Down by Law vs. The Miami Boys,” posted 2 Chainz on Instagram. The Atlanta-raised rhymer later added, “Grab your popcorn @verzuztv.” Ross responded in Chainz’s comment section by writing, “I say a @wingstop 10pc lemon pepper.”
2 Chainz will likely pull from his catalog that includes songs such as “Mercy,” “No Lie,” “Feds Watching,” and “It’s a Vibe.” Fans can expect Rick Ross to run through cuts like “Hustlin’,” “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast),” “Stay Schemin’,” and “All I Do Is Win.”
