    2 Chainz is still a punch-line rapper at heart, but B.O.A.T.S. II adds some Bootsy Collins charisma and ambitious ringleader style to his discography. Pick the sequel over the original and get ready for some stinky, dank, and fun me time.
  2. He has done his best to deliver the kind of care-free, gaudy rap album that will be blaring from the speakers of house parties everywhere for months to come, and B.O.A.T.S. II #METIME readily delivers on that promise.

    While there might be a few missteps her and there--particularly in the strength of some of the verses--most of the album works really well. [Nov 2013, p.93]

    B.O.A.T.S. II is an album that feels happy just to exist, a rejection of the modern idea that album releases are serious events and all the tracks that sound like they were fun to make get relegated to bonus cuts or mixtapes.

    BOATS II is your standard 2013 Southern hip-hop record, complete with ticking beats (‘Extra’), Auto-Tune (‘So We Can Live’) and eye-rollingly explicit lyrics (‘Where U Been?’).

    He’s perfected his lane, but he hasn’t pushed anything forward or changed anything significantly.

    By the end of Me Time, the down-to-Earth, around-the-block-and-back 2 Chainz bores.

    Surprisingly good album. Don't see why there's so much hate. Lyrically he's hilarious and the beats are out of this world! People are justSurprisingly good album. Don't see why there's so much hate. Lyrically he's hilarious and the beats are out of this world! People are just hating because it's 2 Chainz. I only wasn't hot on one track and that was T Pain's fault. In conclusion, it's 2 Chainz so don't expect any rapping from the heart and great meaningful lyrics but if you want some fantastic beats and good laughs then you should pick this up. Better than

With this album, 2 Chainz has grown skill as a rapper. 2 Chainz still isn't at his lyrical best, but you can see his lyrical side on some of the songs toward the end of the album. His production has also improved. I think it's a shame this album did poorly commercially, because it's way better in quality than his first album and is more likely to be remembered in the future than B.O.A.T.S. (the original). Grade: B. Highlights: "Feds Watching", "Used 2", "Outroduction". Worst song: "Employee of the Month" Expand

    Ohh boy, Another 2 Chainz album. Believe it or not, This is actually WORSE then Based On A T.R.U Story. First of all, His verses are trash.Ohh boy, Another 2 Chainz album. Believe it or not, This is actually WORSE then Based On A T.R.U Story. First of all, His verses are trash. But at least it's not all about "Thick **** like the last album. This time, it's all about his cash (More Annoying.) Now, a rapper like 2 Chainz is mostly dependent of his beats. Which, on this album SUCK (Most of them,) The majority are just Trap Beats that have some sort of exotic flavor to them, Which do not sound good. So overall, This album is trash. Expand

    2 chains needs to stick to guest appearances on other MC's tracks cause he can't hold a track by himself-much less and album.

After about three tracks his voice is irratating and you can easily discover his lyrics ain't about sh*t. Thankfully didn't buy this album and wouldn't. Expand
