CD Review | HIP-HOP
‘Based on a T.R.U. Story’ by 2 Chainz
A highly buzzed hip-hop artist should make a debut that moves the genre’s dial ahead a notch. Unfortunately, this long awaited CD from the Georgia MC relies on too many clichés to be a revelation. There are enough sharp one-liners (“I'm so dope/ you can catch a [expletive] contact”), and tricky rhymes to savor, but the inconsistency is maddening.
