Joining an array of anticipated hip-hop efforts, 2 Chainz's major label debut (on Def Jam) Based On A T.R.U. Story does not disappoint. While it may lack the intellect of Nas's Life Is Good or the money savvy swag of Rick Ross's masterful God Forgives I Don't, Based On A T.R.U. Story delivers both solid and some truly noteworthy moments. Sure, there are some humorous, `stupid' cuts that could have easily been on Waka Flocka Flame's most recent Triple F Life: Fans, Friends & Family, but there are also some surprising, head-nodding ones too.

"Yuck!" opens the effort with a dramatic, dark and malicious sound. After the orchestra setting is established with flurries of strings, clapping synthetic snares serve as the percussive accompaniment to STREETRUNNER/Matthew Burnett's production masterpiece. 2 Chainz delivers a capable and compelling set of rhymes here, with a lengthy, though solid and explicit hook from none other than `Tunechi' (aka Lil Wayne).

"Crack" has a hard act to follow and it does so talking about, well `crack.' Well produced (Southside), the cut is less effective mainly due to the fact it is much simpler and more repetitive. It's not bad, but nor is it nearly as great as "Yuck!"

"Dope Peddler" samples Tom Lehrer's "The Old Dope Peddler" in interesting fashion.

2 CHAINZZZZ!!! Reigning from Atlanta, Georgia, Tauheed Epps aka Tity Boi has been putting in work over the past decade. Some people might be unaware that 2 Chainz is actually one half of the group Playaz Circle, a group that tasted a brief success with their street hit "Duffle Bag Boy" feat. Lil Wayne coming 5 years ago. So needless to say 2 Chainz has been around a lot longer than some people may think. The year 2012 has been a very productive year for the former DTP artist, being the hot collaborator for many of todays hottest artists, appearing on practically everybodies songs as well as releasing a large mass of mixtapes he finally dropped his major label debut Based on A T.R.U. story. When I listen to 2 Chainz my expectations of him as a rapper are pretty low. I would never expect high calibur lyricsm, or thought provoking storylines when he raps, however there is one thing that 2 Chainz does have that many other MC's lack, and that is charisma. 2 Chainz is a grown man at the age of 36, so whenever he speaks it feels authentic and it never sounds like he is trying to impress anybody. The only probably is 2 Chainz (to me anyways)doesn't really have anything interesting to say. His music is defined as Trap Muzik, a southern style of Hip Hop that relies on hard hitting bass and aggressive snares. This type of music is nothing new, however on this album it is a much more glossy and defined trap sound with a mix of pop and soul samples.

Based On A T.R.U. Story is an album compiled of radio singles, which is not a problem for its commercial purposes, but as an album this album doesn't express who 2 Chainz is as a person which is a real problem. All I got out of 2 Chainz is mainly drugs, women, money and violent activities which is what horribly stereotypes the genre of Hip Hop.

Some of the production is good, lyrics are elementary, ignorant and wack. Save your money and your brain cells. Cant believe people would actually consider buying this crap.

RAP IS GARBAGE NOWADAYS!!!!! No Track by Track review. 2 chainz voice is absolutely annoying and atrocious and avoidable and sounds like he is a mentally handicapped special needs idiot who looks like Whoopi Goldberg. His rhyming is absolutely off. This rapper is avoidable at all costs. Attention to ANY person on this earth: NEVER BUY THIS GARBAGE EVER. It will make you a trashy person in reality.

This includes rappers who are featured on this record, escpecially Lil Wayne. NEVER LISTEN TO THIS KIND OF RAP, ESCECIALLY THIS OR LIL WAYNE. Enough said about this garbage.

Well wasn't this one a total displeasure and a general annoyance from all angles. There is a scarceness of substance, 2 Chainz is heavily annoying, and the production delivers nothing new. The production is handled by the typical names you would hear from the South, delivering heavily synthesized beats with heavy bass and slow tempo, ideal for clubs and such. The beats deliver a similar feel throughout, but in a repetitive way. 2 Chainz performs terribly with his annoying flow and his consistency in delivering lines that have minimal connection and generally barely make any sense. The content consists of money, swag, and bitches...and that is about it. The only thing I enjoyed was the quick hats on the production; the album blatantly sucks.
