2 Chainz recently blessed the streets with some heat via his new studio album “So Help Me God.” This project encapsulates the rappers persona perfectly and any fan of Chainz new or old will feel this one. In this official 2Chainz album review I will be discussing how his new album is another great one.
2 Chainz has some dope collaborations on the album. He includes features from some big figures in the game such as Rick Ross, Kanye West, and Ty$ as well as upcoming rap star Mulatto. As a result his album has a little bit of something for everybody.
The album starts with the tracks Lambo Wrist and Grey Area, which are for both the big ballers and trappers who Chainz most resonates with. Just listening to the tracks made me want to go out get some money. One of my favorite bars in the album comes on Grey Area when Chainz says, “All the shit that I have done, I can not believe in karma.” It can get grimey on the way to the top.
Turn Up Music
The first feature on the album comes on the third track Save Me with YoungBoy Never Broke Again. This song is a great example of 2 Chainz diversifying his sound by encapsulating that New Orleans bounce on a track with one of Louisiana’s hottest young rappers.
The next 4 songs on the album really made me miss life before quarantine. They all slap and would be fire to turn up to in the club. My favorite track out of these, “Money Maker” has a dope ass sample of Guy – Piece of My Love with a HBCU twist to it. The fusion of R&B and marching band creates a sick sound that is perfect for both 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne to flow on.
After a couple of potential club bangers, 2 Chainz gets back to his trap shit on the track ‘Ziplock’ featuring Kevin Gates. This is that classic 2 Chainz that we’ve come to know and Kevin Gates doesn’t disappoint neither, providing a complementary sound on this track.
‘Free Lighter’ featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Chief Keef as well as Toni are straight up trap bangers. This is music that’s perfect to listen to when working or hustling.
I really appreciated they way 2 Chainz ended this project. The last couple tracks’ productions are more smooth and mellow as he gets in his reflective bag. In both ‘Southside HOV’ and ‘Vampire’, Chainz spits some bars about real life shit that resonates with anyone whos been through it. The outro ’55 Times’ is the chef’s kiss; it ends the album with some dope production and a fire bar by Chainz, “God keep on blessing, I’m doing something right.”
