    "True to my religion, true everything I'm too different," declares 2 Chainz on his latest single, "Birthday Song".

    He speaks the truth. There's no other MC in the universe quite like 2 Chainz. A Southern maverick with a smooth sense of style and an even smoother flow, he's just what hip hop needed.

    "Birthday Song" [iTunes link] pops with airy production and foreboding orchestral flourishes. Meanwhile, he slides through clever verses with inimitable swagger and personal flare. The hook is boldly brilliant, and it'll stay stuck in your head for months.

    On the second verse, Kanye West cameos, lighting up the beats with his own brand of high class savoir fare. West and 2 Chainz together is a match made in the Heaven or the strip club or the Louis Vuitton store—take your pick.

    "Birthday Song" is another amazing gift to rap music, and it only heightens the anticipation tenfold for Based on a T.R.U. Story when it hits August 14, 2012.
