Fans of 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne will have a chance to see the rappers perform songs from their new joint project this week.

Tidal X: Collegrove will take place at The Tabernacle on March 30 at 9 p.m. The pop-up concert will be streamed live via music streaming platform Tidal.

Tidal subscribers who are interested in attending the concert in person can register here.

“Collegrove” was released earlier this month as a 2 Chainz album, but Lil Wayne is featured on eight of the album’s 13 tracks. The project’s title is a portmanteau or 2 Chainz’s hometown College Park and Lil Wayne’s hometown, Hollygrove, New Orleans.

The album features the single “Bounce.”

2 Chainz  is known for songs such as “I’m Different” and “Birthday Song” with Kanye West.

Atlanta’s T.I. held a similar pop-up show at Greenbriar Mall in February, using the concert to announce a business partnership with the music streaming platform. Rappers Young Thug and Young Dro were brought out as special guests during the concert.
