2 Chainz, Cap 1, Skooly and Fresh (AKA Short Dawg) – T.R.U Jack City Review

This is a good compilation for the group to showcase their individual skill and the chemistry of the group. However it shows that 2 Chainz is not as accomplished as he believes.

The production is good and is diverse enough to allow a range of tracks, but not so much that it is complete when it comes to topics of songs. Most of this project is trap music that follows the same patterns and formulas on each beat, but there are a couple that expand their thoughts and allow a wider range of emotions and possibility.

The lyricism is alright but this project is mostly about street credibility and the reality of it. While there are some attempts at clever lyricism, this mixtape is mostly about making tracks that the street can bop to and can relate to. Mostly about drugs and women, the lyrics are made for delivery to make them powerful, but for that to be the case, some of the artists need to step their game up.

The features are alright but are all too much like the main artists to make much of an impact or add much to the tracks. With so many artists out there trying to make it big in rap, making songs that could have been made by anyone is not the way to stand out and the verses the features put out are mediocre. They need to try harder to make more of an impact.

Overall, this is a good compilation for the main artists who aren’t 2 Chainz to get more exposure, but there is a lot left to be desired and a lot of untapped potential. With some more effort and a higher level of diversity, this group could have some success in the music industry.
