The standout aspects on the album is the production. At best the songs are decent because Big Sean is not a rapper that can pull an emotion out of someone like J. Cole, Kendrick or Drake. He is not an interesting rapper but he can make decent hit songs. It started out with Nothing Can Stop You which was a decent song and was followed by Fire which was also not a bad song aside from a personal preference for a production tweak. 10 2 10 was horrid and is proof that Satan is real. Big Sean does not have the vocals to pull off a track like 10 2 10. Everything afterwards with the exception of First Chain and MILF are dry and boring. First Chain was a good song because of the featured artists Nas and Kid Cudi (who in my opinion had the best verse). MILF can either be viewed as funny given the tone of Nicki Minaj's and Big Sean's lyrics or a god awful concept song (which it was). Another standout moment on this track was the interlude Freaky which was extremely awkward and could have been left off the album with the other interlude/skit about him getting robbed by a groupie.
If you liked Big Sean's first album then you'll more than likely like this album. It's the same quality (which is not good from my perspective) with less hits.
