    By Rap or Go to the League, 2 Chainz is a veteran rapper of a certain age who posits himself to be at the top of his game. Unlike the outsized projections rap stars routinely make to seem more powerful, 2 Chainz assessment of himself is actually correct.
  2. Sure, in terms of quality, Rap Or Go To The League isn’t the classic album that 2 Chainz craves, but--on this evidence--he’s not far from delivering one.

    The blemishes on Rap or Go to the League don’t change the fact that every single song has at least something great about it, which you can’t say about most 50-minute+ rap albums, let alone one made by someone who’s been around as long as 2 Chainz has.

    Aside from a few less-than-strong features, Rap or Go to the League allows 2 Chainz, a veteran rapper, to use his powers to acknowledge a picture much larger than him--it's one that's rooted in his past, but is planting the seeds for the feature.

    While Chainz’s level of authenticity remains intact throughout the album’s duration, the commercial ambitions of its third quarter give way to a lapse of quality.

    He delves deeper into his personal life more but he is just as sharp as been across his last handful of releases. It isn’t so much that these songs are better; they simply render a more complete picture of him, one he’s been working toward.

    Simply put, this is the best rap album i have heard this year. In the song Threat 2 Society, 2 Chainz talks about how he never gets the creditSimply put, this is the best rap album i have heard this year. In the song Threat 2 Society, 2 Chainz talks about how he never gets the credit he deserves. I agree with him. He has come a long way from his days of New Playaz Circle. This album is currently the best rap album I have heard this year and it has rekindled my interest in his music. Good stuff Expand
