2 Chainz Tells His ‘T.R.U. Story’, Whitney Houston ‘Sparkles’ In Theaters: The Drop

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for The Drop, our Soundbytes segment that reviews all the hottest releases of the week. Making these August days even hotter is a country-fried rapper formerly of Ludacris‘ crew, now stepping out on his own with a new name and his first solo record. We’re talking about 2 Chainz and Based On A T.R.U. Story, an album with more cameos than a Scary Movie sequel. Joining him on our roundup is another star-powered vehicle, Sparkle, the major motion picture that hits theaters on Friday (Aug. 17). Hit play to preview both releases and to find out if either is worth your hard-earned dollars.
