On June 16th 2017, 2 Chainz released his 4th studio album titled ” Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. 2 Chainz released many singles before this project such as ” Big Amount, and Good Drank, which were originally listed on his past mixtapes Daniel Son; Necklace Don, and Hibachi for Lunch. With these two singles, it looked like 2 Chainz was determined to make a huge comeback, and with Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, 2 Chainz put the whole rap game on notice.
The album starts off with “Saturday Night, where 2 Chainz discusses how he gets to where he is at in his life and thanks the people who grew up with him. After the second track ” Riverdale Rd the album starts to get better and better by each song. the 4th song, 4 AM is a great club banger, where 2 Chainz mentions his idol Lil Wayne, and how he would never turn his back on him. The album went from great to amazing on the 7th & 8th track ” Realize, and Poor fool. The sound that 2 Chainz brings on Realize with Nicki Minaj shows that 2 Chainz is trying to touch another audience besides the same trap like following. I personally was impressed by this slow paste sound and thought it sounded great. Poor Fool has 2 Chainz mentioning his mother with a heart cold hook, and intense lyrics. 2 Chainz really brings the song home when he states he was raised be a single black woman, and takes it to Swae Lee preaching the things 2 Chainz Mother taught him growing up.
I personally feel that The last few tracks 2 chainz really shows his true trap side with ” Sleep When You Die, Trap Check, and OG Kush Diet, which are 3 songs that had some of the best production from the album. 2 Chainz actually shows that he has evolved as a mainstream artist, and has brought a lot to the table since Based on a T.R.U. Story. This album deserves a solid 8/10 for an impactful release, amazing production, heavy lyrics, and a great album. 2 Chainz Proves that he is still one of the best in the game and is still on his way to bigger and better things.
