Once apart of rap duo Playaz Circle, the artist formerly known as Titty Boy turned Def Jam recording artist, 2 chainz, released his debut “Based on a T.R.U story” on August 14th.
While the album has no lyrical content worth any value what so ever. The beats do deserve some praise. With tracks produced by such big names as The Dream and Kanye West, it’s hard not to find at least one track to nod your head to.
The features on the album also deserve some credit. Nicki Minaj, Drake, Kanye West, The Weeknd, Lil Wayne and a few others appear throughout, which is quite frankly the only reason I didn’t turn it off.
If I had to pick a few tracks that weren’t completely god awful, it’d have
to be “Like Me” which samples The Weeknd’s “The Birds pt 1”, and the radio single “No Lie” featuring Drake. Both because of the fact that I’m sure if Im really drunk I’ll ignore what he’s saying and just vibe to the beats.
All in all, if you need a good laugh, at someone else’s lack of talent, or get drunk enough to the point where you just hear beats, check out “Based On A T.R.U Story”. Otherwise, I’d just avoid it.
