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

Idolator Staff | August 14, 2012 - 6:00 am

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.
