You know what, Based On A TRU Story by 2 Chainz is the greatest album of the year.
Ok no its not but 2 Chainz is probably my favourite rapper that I first heard of in 2012 because his music is stupid fun. There, I said it. This is the kind of music that just makes me want to go insane and wave my arms and shit. I like 2 Chainz. He doesnt have thought provoking lyrics but I think theyre hilarious. Hes different and hes likable. Other rappers talk about the same stuff that he talks about (money, women, etc.) but something about the way 2 Chainz brings himself together is just amazing.
Honestly, once you accept that youre listening to bad music it becomes so much more likeable for some strange reason. I could just be an insanely pretentious "hip hop head" and bash this album but I embraced the amazing ratchetness that is this album.
I give this album 34300 chains out of 24093 dollar bills.
Forgot to add the part where I got into his music through that Drake song where I was listening to it and I turned up the volume just loud to mock the song but something about that clicked with me.
