So Help Me God ! s’est fait désirer. En regardant la liste de featurings qu’il contient finalement, on est en droit de supposer que les agendas de tous les poids lourds réunis dans sa tracklist ont dû retarder le processus. Ce qui est sûr, c’est que ce sixième album de 2 Chainz valait la peine d’attendre un peu. Car malgré des premiers titres un peu déconcertants, sa versatilité et son audace font un bien fou dans un rap américain qui, parfois, à tendance à sortir le pilotage automatique. Ici, il s’agit de prise de risque. Il y a donc des plantages, comme Lambo Wrist ou Quarantine Thick (pourtant l’un des singles de l’album), mais aussi une volée de moments de grâce. A commencer par Can’t Go For That qui, comme son nom l’indique, sample le tube de 1981 du duo Hall and Oates, en l’agrémentant de rythmiques de TR-808. Un morceau où la mélodie prime brillamment, comme sur les excellents Southside Ov et Vampire. Mais 2 Chainz ne serait rien sans sa part la plus sombre. Même si les sonorités sont globalement optimistes, certains titres comme Ziploc avec Kevin Gates raviront les amateurs de productions vaporeuses et profondes. Surtout, le bonhomme sait s’entourer : Kanye West et la perle RnB Brent Faiyaz sont convoqués sur Feel A Way, débordant d’inventivité et co-produit par le grand Mike Dean. Ce dernier est aussi à l’origine de YRB, en featuring avec Rick Ross et Skooly, savoureux, et bourré de synthétiseurs et de guitares saturées. Après son projet No Face No Case sorti plus tôt en 2020, 2 Chainz prouve que même si ses sorties sonnent comme des successions de titres sans pensée ou atmosphère globale, il reste l’un des boss du coup par coup et du banger rap. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

The title of Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz's fifth studio album, Rap or Go to the League, is a reference to the destructive belief that the only two routes out of a life of crime and poverty are to either become a famous rapper or athlete. The title alone indicates a new level of consciousness and amplified maturity, at least moving well past the larger-than-life party monster persona that made some of his early songs multi-platinum hits. While there are still moments of that strip-club bravado here, these 14 songs are more reflective and thoughtful than anything 2 Chainz has turned in before. Beats built on wistful soul samples make up tracks like the Ariana Grande-assisted "Rule the World" or the autobiographical album opener, "Forgiven," creating a pervasive mood of introspection. Rap or Go to the League moves between this emotional searching and bangers like "Momma I Hit a Lick" and bass-heavy flex-fests like "2 Dollar Bill." 2 Chainz calls out the big guns on these tracks, with verses from Lil Wayne, E-40, and Kendrick Lamar, and elsewhere on the album he trades rhymes with Travis Scott, Kodak Black, Chance the Rapper, Young Thug, and Ty Dolla $ign. The strength of the album is its ability to explore more serious themes without losing the fun and swagger that the rapper made his name on. Now in his early forties, it makes sense that 2 Chainz's art is developing beyond hedonistic abandon to touch on real-life concerns like family, society, and becoming an elder statesman of the rap game. Without making any kind of heavy-handed declaration, Rap or Go to the League is a step forward in 2 Chainz's artistry, and reveals sides of his personality that were previously harder to see in the shadow of his enormous persona. © Fred Thomas /TiVo

Tauheed Epps' secondary releases throughout 2016 indicated that the rapper was heading toward something special for proper solo album three. Released four months after he became the Grammy-winning 2 Chainz -- Chance the Rapper's "No Problem," featuring him and Lil Wayne, took the award for Best Rap Performance -- this full-length is presented in an offhanded manner that contradicts its magnitude. Pretty Girls Like Trap Music sounds like the title of a tape rather than that of a career high from a rapper who, despite his categorical affiliation and outsize personality, is no mere entertainer. Likewise, the packaging of the compact disc edition is bare, supplying no information beyond the track list and credits for artwork, A&R, and executive production. Inconspicuousness notwithstanding, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music is among Epps' most significant and enjoyable work. His raised-voice/grimaced-face mode is more commanding than ever, and whether drawn from the past or present, the word play -- from "Used to treat my mattress like the ATM" to "I bought a Tesla today/There's nothin' left in your tank" -- is consistently vivid. In "Realize," featuring Nicki Minaj, he breaks from glowering to nearly losing his composure as he snaps at the government and his younger mumbling contemporaries. That delivery is just as effective (and comic). As Epps and his collaborators demonstrate the life left in trap music, a form that sounds either bankrupt or uprooted in the hands of many, the album also flashes back. "Trap Check," a highlight, is a laser-focused, easy-rolling track that binds Jeezy's "Get Ya Mind Right" to T.I.'s "ASAP" -- classics that predate even "Duffle Bag Boy," Epps' biggest Playaz Circle hit, and still sound fresh. The album ends with one of rap's most moving poverty-to-prosperity numbers, an elegant Mike Dean production with a reverential introduction from Minister Louis Farrakhan and an ascending hook from Monica. There's more weight to "See my mom was a addict, and my dad was the dealer, and they son is that n*gga" than the average commercial rapper's most profound thought. For Epps, it's just another line, a simple truth. © Andy Kellman /TiVo

Hi-Res
"If it wasn't for Wayne, it wouldn't be" says 2 Chainz at the beginning of his ColleGrove album, but this is no ordinary 2 Chainz album. ColleGrove could be considered a group or a duo featuring 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne, although Weezy doesn't get an official credit on this release due to label issues and contractual obligations. Still, he's either on, or the subject of, every cut on this surprise album, which was dropped unannounced by Def Jam and comes off as a highly polished mixtape. There are hints that the long-absent Weezy is turning into a new version of Future as "Smell Like Money" rattles off "Oh my God, it's raining men/Said the weathermen to the anchormen" and then coasts on a beat that Wayne dubs "dope and cologne." Later, "Blue C-Note" drops "Dreadlocked Rasta, hair like pasta/I don't see what's your problem, I need an eye doctor" and Wayne is the Wayne all fans had hoped for, but 2 Chainz can't be ignored, and rightfully rules his half of the release. Still, it's a casual, tossed-off affair, although one filled with mutual admiration, riveting one-upmanship, and a glorious journey across the hip-hop production spectrum, from Mannie Fresh to Metro Boomin. © David Jeffries /TiVo

« Rookie of the year » aux BET Hip Hop Awards 2012, autrement dit meilleur débutant de l’année dans la catégorie des grosses pointures du rap game, 2 Chainz a complètement changé de standing. Énorme succès aux États-Unis, Based on a T.R.U Story frôle le demi-million de ventes dans les bacs. Anciennement surnommé « Tity Boi » dans le groupe Playaz Circle, le rappeur a repris son destin en main et changé de nom en 2010, considérant que le label de Ludacris qu’il l’avait accueilli ne le faisait pas assez briller. On ne peut pas vraiment dire qu’il se soit trompé en partant chercher la gloire en solo. « Homme de l’année » pour le magazine The Source, 2 Chainz est courtisé par toutes les pointures du rap game comme Kanye West et Nicki Minaj que l’on retrouve sur l’album. Digne descendant du rap sudiste emmené par les vétérans OutKast et Lil' Jon puis par Lil' Wayne et Ludacris, 2 Chainz fait honneur au Dirty South comme sur « Crack ». Très efficaces, les basses sont lourdes et l’ambiance oppressante. L’ouverture avec « Yuck! » en duo avec Lil' Wayne ne laisse pas planer de doute, Based on a T.R.U Story est conçu dans la droite ligne du Southern Rap. Du pur son de ganster des bayous où se mêlent chaînes en or, rythmiques agressives (« Dope Peddler »), singles calibrés (« No Lie » avec Drake) et duos de stars (« Birthday Song » avec Kanye West). 2 Chainz se relâche un peu sur la ballade R&B « Extremely Blessed ». Un calme de courte durée avant l’arrivée de la furie Nicki Minaj sur « I Luv Dem Strippers ». Mention spéciale à « Stop Me Now » avec Dolla Boy, « Money Machine » et « Ghetto Dreams » avec John Legend et Scarface qui sortent vraiment de l’ordinaire. Pas suffisant pour faire de ce premier effort un classique mais qui augure tout de même d’une belle carrière pur l’homme aux deux chaînes. © ©Copyright Music Story Benjamin Mathieu 2017

Using a title scrapped by friend Kanye West, 2 Chainz offers his sixth proper album in a way that comes across as a promise and threat. The content of So Help Me God! likewise is a work of dualism more than his previous releases, brooding and balling in extremes. "Last one with Def Jam but I'm still goin' off," he notes casually in the track "Feel a Way," and he proves his claim through the grim "Vampire," the spirit-of-'96 "Southside Hov," and acts of humorously gratuitous flamboyance such as "Lambo Wrist" and "Quarantine Thick." If this does prove to be 2 Chainz's last Def Jam recording, there's no denying he went out in strong form. Tracks with amusing reinterpretations of classics by Hall & Oates, Guy, and David Banner show that the rapper had a good deal of fun while making it, too. © Andy Kellman /TiVo

Eight months after he released his fourth consecutive Top Five album, 2 Chainz returned with a commercial EP sporting a title worthy of an album. The Play Don't Care Who Makes It contains four tracks, acting as an extension of the previous year's Pretty Girls Like Trap Music and similar to the earlier EPs in its lack of second-rate material. Few match the rapper when it comes to nimbly switching between humble reflections and hubristic nonsense. YG and Offset are the lone guests here. © TiVo
