Earlier this year, Braxton’s “Crazy Kind of Love” released as the first single off of the soundtrack, and an accompanying music video dropped on April 27.

Both are available on streaming platforms like YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music.
“True to the Game 2” follows up with the franchise’s characters a year after the events of the first film unfolded. Gena, played by Erica Peeples, attempts to leave her life in Philadelphia behind by becoming a journalist on assignment in Los Angeles. But the death of her former love interest in the earlier movie is not without its consequences; someone’s actions to avenge his death lead to a war between two crews.
Both Waka Flocka Flame and Tamar Braxton, who are on the soundtrack, also make appearances during the film.
It also stars Vivica A. Fox, Andra Fuller, Jeremy Meeks and Lil Mama. Various theaters nationwide will screen “True to the Game 2,” with the full list available on the movie’s website. Watch the movie’s trailer below:
