2 Chainz is like a law professor with a southern accent, he sounds like an idiot but he's really saying some dope shit. While some get caught up in his drawl and his slang, he's quietly become one of the most consistent artist of the past 10 years. He put his foot on the gas on the closing verse of Mercy and hasn't looked back since.
The artist formally known as Tity Boi put out a series of mixtapes over the last year to build up hype for his biggest work to date: Pretty Girls Love Trap Music.
I won't lie, the first time I heard this title it just didn't flow off the tongue the way a good title should. However after listening to it I realized something; good albums make the title, not vice versa. And man oh man is this a good album.
2 Chainz has fully taken on the form of Benevolent drug dealer and I'm here for it. Each song sounds like a local dope boy giving neighborhood kids dollars to stay out of trouble. This is music that you can bag up bud AND apply to college to. Thats RARE. 2 Chainz is both the best influence and the worst influence you know. Your mom will tell you not to hang out with him while she smiles and waves as he drives by. He's a complicated man.
The only problem I have with this album is that, its TOO good. 2 Chainz is one of the best rappers out, but for some reason he doesn't get the credit he deserves. Personally I think it's because it isn't a surprise that he's good anymore. 2 Chainz is like Waffle House, he was great when everyone thought he was filthy but now that everyone knows the work he puts in the greatness isn't fully appreciated.
2 Chainz is like a mystical negro from one of those "make white people feel good" movies. Except instead of just being wise and magical, he will rob you. This album should be beloved by everyone. This is arguably the best album of the year. I give this album 9 Gucci bandanas out of 9
