Rap Or Go To The League

Excellent, Based on 4 Critics

Exclaim - 80
Based on rating 8/10

When 2 Chainz transformed his hoop dreams at Alabama State University into a rap career, there were only two options: become a successful rapper, or return to a street life that awaited him. It's a stark reality for many young men from inner city communities, and one that fuelled his fifth studio album, Rap or Go to the League.   After announcing the album with a million dollar blimp at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, 2 Chainz surprised fans once more by saying the upcoming album would also be executive produced by none other than LeBron ….

The 405 - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Tauheed Epps' commercial career as 2 Chainz started with a joke: "Cut the top off, call it Amber Rose" he declared at the start of Based on a T.R.U. Story. As far as rap similes go, it's not bad, but there was a significant risk as far as establishing legitimacy as an M.C.

Appearing on other people's tracks, the Georgia rapper's turned the guest verse into a fine art. Now he's finally made the solo album worthy of his supreme talent For the best part of a decade, 2 Chainz has been obliterating guest verses with an admirable consistency. Whenever the Georgia rapper pops up on a track, you know it's going to be worth your time, with 2 Chainz providing endless cartoonish, quotable lines (my personal favourite: "Got a bottle of cologne that cost more than your rent") that are by equal parts hysterical and heartfelt.

HipHopDX - 78
Based on rating 3.9/5

Somewhere in the last couple of years, 2 Chainz realized his too-cool-for-school and latchkey demeanor had overshadowed his superior mic skills and he began to take action. 2017's Pretty Girls Love Trap Music became his signature project via playlist-ready jams and a heightened visibility thanks to the Atlanta rap vet's association with non-Hip Hop publications. His latest offering, the oft-disjointed Rap or Go to the League, pads his discography with a bevy of new stage-ready material but won't be the reason for his come-up all the same.
