The truth is 2 Chainz is going to have the #1 album in America when the final tally comes in tonight, according to Billboard and Hits Daily Double. the Atlanta rapper’s debut album on Def Jam Records, Based On A T.R.U. Story, moved 145,809 units in it’s first week and looks to move more as the final tally is still on its way in.

This is just another feather in the cap of the people over at Def Jam Records as this is their fourth straight top two Billboard debut in as many weeks. Frank Ocean’s channel ORANGE, Nas’ Life Is Good, and Rick Ross God Forgives, I Don’t all debuted #1 or #2 on the charts in what has been a banner year for Hip-Hop’s most storied record label. 2 Chainz’s Based On A T.R.U. Story includes the #1 record on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts, “No Lie,” featuring Drake. Congratulations to Tity Two Necklaces for another notable accomplishment in his resurgent career.
