2 Chainz Announces Work On

2 Chainz says he is continuing his work on his "B.O.A.T.S." series with a third installment.

2 Chainz announced that he is working on a third edition to his B.O.A.T.S. series of albums in a Twitter update made today (February 4). 

"Workin on B.O.A.T.S III," Chainz said. 

B.O.A.T.S. stands for Based On a T.R.U. Story, the rapper's debut album as 2 Chainz. The album received a 3 out of 5 X rating on HipHopDX when it was released in 2012. 

"As a guest rapper, he's something like a big fish in a small pond - someone who might look and sound impressive at first glance, but is encumbered by stark limitations," HipHopDX said at the time. "Naturally, he's thoroughly out-rhymed by every guest on the album - Kanye WestDrake, Minaj, Scarface - and that might be the real reason behind the 2 Chainz phenomenon: He's a rapper that other rappers will endorse because they know he'll bring a certain amount of idiotic energy to their own track while never threatening their dominant status. He should stick to that pool."

In 2013, 2 Chainz released B.O.A.T.S. II: #MeTimean album that received a 2.5 out of 5 X rating on HipHopDX

"By now, most fans should know that 2 Chainz isn’t interested in providing the type of lyricism offered by emcees like Big Boi or Jay Electronica," HipHopDX said at the time. "And those listening to 2 Chainz probably don’t want that from him anyway. Either way, this time around, his formula—catchy hooks, spit-take worthy one-liners and danceable, Top-40 production—suffers from either overexposure or a lack of innovation. As the summer winds down, loyal 2 Chainz supporters and casual fans may enjoy B.O.A.T.S. II: #MeTime as functional, turn up music. But listeners that don’t fall into either of those categories would do well picking up more uniform offerings from similar artists."

Makes anyone with half a brain question the motive.

      BOAT 3 will have more promotion this time around. His last album suffered from lack of promotion. He has a top 10 hit with Talk Dirty.

      BOATS III will still flop like the last one. Make all the excuses you want. Besides, Talk Dirty isn't even his song.

      Yet its only derulo's first top ten single since 2009. 2 Chainz is on this song.

      That means 2 Chainz can't get a hit song anymore and has to ride other people's momentum.

    Can 2 Chainz stop for a second and take a breather? Sometimes, MC's should just focus on making good music. 2Chainz is dying down because he is doing it too fast. The first BOATS was alright but I thought he was going to take his time to creat the next one. Now,it seems like he is making an album a year. For some that's cool but for him, it's like you gotta build the demand. He does constant features so it's almost like he is still out. Sometimes less is more and Chainz is doing too much!

      that's how I felt with artists, I think every 2 years to 3 is good enough time to still stay consistent and relevant but also gives time to make a great record..
