2 chainz pretty girls like trap music

2 Chainz shows out on Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, his most cohesive body of work to date.

2 Chainz has found a groove as one of the best rappers on the planet. A sentence that probably would have seemed foreign half a decade ago, the former Teta Chico has spent years not only crashing guest appearances (“Mercy”, “No Problem“) as well as joint efforts (2016’s ColleGrove album with Lil Wayne). Now we’re here at Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, an album rounded out not only by sharp guest appearances but some of 2 Chainz’ best work as a solo artist.

The 16-track album features previously released singles such as “4 AM” with Travis Scott and “Big Amount” featuring Drake and “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Jhene Aiko and Trey Songz. The accurately titled album features even more guests as Pharrell, Monica, Migos and Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd all appear. Production wise, Tit doesn’t slack at all grabbing beats from Mike WiLL Made It, Murda Beatz, Honorable C-Note, Ducko McFli & more.

With 2 Chainz, much of this feels ordained. It’s been a decade since he first garnered our attention with “Duffle Bag Boyz” as a member of Playaz Circle and since his assault on mixtapes and more beginning in 2010, he hasn’t slowed down. A career renaissance has only added to more work, more consistency and a bigger breadth of appreciation for the moment. Stream the Atlanta rapper’s latest album below via Apple Music and Spotify.
