In 2013, it ain't a party unless 2 Chainz is playing.
Somehow, he managed to best last year's debut with an even bigger, better, and ballsier sophomore set—B.O.A.T.S. 2# METIME. So why is everybody from Lil Wayne to Kanye West loving 2 Chainz, it's because he knows how to have a good time and he also happens to be one of the most skilled MC's out there. Take album opener "Fork" it skids from his breezy, boastful flow right into a hilariously infectious hook and lines like "My stove deserve a shout out, I'm like, 'What up stove'?" He's so dope that his wrist deserves a shout out too!
That first single "Feds Watching" remains one of the slickest anthems of 2013, while he goes line-for-line with Drake and Lil Wayne on the piping hot banger "I Do It". "Where U Been?" is a damn good question because if you aren't down with 2 Chainz, you're more than missing out.
"Netflix" sees Fergie get sexy once more over a bedroom romp that's as cheeky as it is catchy. Of course "Beautiful Pain" and "So We Can Live" would be perfect for any strip club worldwide, but 2 Chainz's wordplay is more enticing and engaging than any ass-shaking out there. That's the truth. "Black Unicorn" shows a pensive side, and it's just as impactful especially as his rapping entwines with Chrisette Michele's massive chorus.
Welcome to the party of the year. B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time is one of the year's best albums and a milestone for 2 Chainz.
