This release shows that 2 Chainz knows his core audience, but doesn’t grow to increase his listeners and therefore earn more money, as one of the songs on here is all about. Something to think about at least.
The production is good with a lot of interesting and entertaining sounds that create a lot of energy and keep it flowing through the whole project. A lot of the beats however are very much within the wheel house of the main artist. Trying to expand his repertoire further out of his comfort zone would make a more balanced release.
The lyricism is good, but is more of the same from 2 Chainz. He has respectable wordplay and his delivery is still entertaining, but his hooks are repetitive and the content is more of the same. Something fresh could give a lot of boost to this release, but it would have to be a big boost.
The features do great at breaking up the monotony that can set in by adding fresh voices and styles to the mix. Each does a good job of showing what they are capable of, but also at bringing fresh energy streams in ot stimulate this project and stop it dropping rankings any further. Some more singers would help bring more diversity too.
Overall, this will appeal to Chainz’s core audience, but does not have a lot to give other rap listeners. The title does not reflect the content and a lot of it will already have been heard before.
This project is more of the same from 2 Chainz, but he does do them well. Chainz makes energetic and repetitive music that gets stuck in the listeners head and is entertaining, if nothing else.
The production is bouncy and inspires movement when being listened to. Each beat has similarities, but not enough so they get confused into one big mess. Maybe some more diversity could help further this mixtape, but Chainz has selected backings that give him a plenty of space to do what he does.
The lyricism is to the point and relies on delivery but it effective. The rhymes are punchy but don’t contain a lot of complexity and this helps it appeal to all listeners. Some more complicated bars would not have gone amiss but Chainz knows what his fans want to hear.
Overall, with the features on this mixtape adding a little diversity, this is a good romp through some formulaic 2 Chainz tracks, but it would be great to see Chainz trying something a little different. Maybe on the next one.
This project is simply a placeholder as it has no real impact on the listener at all. 2 Chainz does what he is known for, but he doesn’t push himself to be better.
The production is good and helps keep the project moving. Each beat has energy and bounce that makes every one more cohesive to the next and sound in place with the project. Maybe some slower tracks could have balanced it out a bit more, but more work is needed on the rhymes than the production.
The lyricism is alright with some clever attempts but not enough to make a huge notice. 2 Chainz uses his signature flow and voice to make his songs strong, but they fall flat with repetition. Some more creativity could really help lift this mixtape.
The features are good but aren’t enough to lift the project to greatness. They all put in good efforts and help the tracks they are on. Maybe a few more could have helped the project overall.
Overall, this is an enjoyable project to listen through once, but has no longevity at all, in the sense that maybe once is enough. 2 Chainz may want to start looking for more in his work to stay more relevant.
