Hustle Gang – Get Dough or Die 2 Review

This is a nice collection of the same sounding songs that do not fully show the talent on the roster. It is very unfortunate that this is not the standout label roster showcase the G.D.O.D series is intended to be. Even the head honcho, T.I, who is a very talented rapper, sounds comfortable but not excelling on every track. He still comes across as the top guy amoung the others on the tracks but he is not putting out the rhymes that we all know he is capable of, even with the double time flow.

The lyrics are not strong on this album. T.I shows what he can do but it comes across as he is not really trying and a couple of others, Trae Tha Truth and Young Dro, do quite well on the tracks they are on. The others however come across as very similar and non-distinguishable. B.o.B does some alright work on his tracks but even Iggy Azalea comes across as mediocre on the track she appears on.

The production is good, but needs more variation. Although done by different producers, they come across as almost the same. Mostly trap based beats, they all seem to follow a generic formula and pattern that doesn’t create a very entertaining atmosphere.

One of the good things going for the project is the energy that goes into it. A majority, if not all, of the tracks have a lot of energy and that is one of the only positive things about this project that could have been so very promising.

Overall, this does not live up to its potential at all but can provide a couple of good songs to use, possibly as some sort of workout mix for when you go to the gym.
