With Lil Jon, Ying Yang Twins and Pitbull among their artist roster, TVT Records have been the hottest label in crunk for some time. This is their fourth and most crunkified collection to date. Until Lil Jon drops his new cd "Crunk Rock" in the fall, Crunk Hits Vol. 2 is the ONLY cd on the market with his massive hit "Snap Yo Fingers." The same is true for Pitbull's lastest banger "Bojangles"--you can't get this on cd anywhere else but here until Pibull unleashes his next cd "El Mariel" in the fall. 18 huge hits from the biggest names in crunkdom just in time for your summer barbecues n pool partys. The track list really says it all. Not to mention all the guest shots on those tracks! Get this, turn up da boombox, Ipod, stereo . boom! instant party!

I know exactly where I was when I heard Robert Christgau pimping this album. That afternoon commute changed my life. Sometimes you just want to crank up some loud music and let off some steam. Crunk Hits Volume 2 will not disappoint on this front.
I must have listened to that Gasolina remix one too many times because one day, this CD just vaporized. Gone. And I hadn't ripped it anywhere because it never left my CD player. There are only two copies left on Amazon right now and you can bet your sweet patootie that one of them is getting shipped out to me tonight. To whomever jacked my first copy of Crunk Hits Volume 2, I hope you're enjoying it and not just hiding it from me because this time, I'm ripping it to every memory source I've got so I will never be without Crunk Hits Volume 2 ever again.
This album is not quite "solid gold". However, no track is a total loss here. Rather, a few just jump out as a bit annoying. That said, when this music hits its stride it's powerful and has me reaching for the volume to make it louder. So far track 9 ("Back Then" by Mike Jones) has stood out as the most distinctive and intriguing track on the mix. The track by Three 6 Mafia is also quite good.
Towards the end one song, "icy" by Gucci Mane, does seem to break the mold the others were cut from and feels a bit more like hip-hop/r&b than crunk. After 16 songs of hard spittin', crooning computerized vocals induce a "WTF is this?" reaction.
Overall, I recommend this album so long as you're okay with frequent N-bombs, women portrayed as little more than ornaments and ho's, and the frequent juxtaposition of diamonds to dicks.
