B.O.A.T.S. II #Metime
Label: Def Jam Recordings
2 Chainz is striking while the iron's hot: In a little over a year, here comes a second B.O.A.T.S. of guilty pleasure trap-raps. Claims like "I need an app called iTrap" on "Where U Been," "Fresh as hell if the feds watching," and two (!) songs about posting sex videos on the web ("Netflix" and "Used 2") ... these should hit the drunken sing-along sweet spot. So it's a shock when he turns to yacht-rap confessionals near the end like "Beautiful Pain," "So We Can Live" and "Black Unicorn." They aren't as convincing as his ringtone tunes, but they suggest an inner life beyond the clubs.
