Gucci Mane makes good on his mixtape's title by delivering a collection of his signature brand of animated trap cuts, along with some bigger features than we've seen on his previous tapes.
If thereâs one
rapper out there that shows unfaltering consistencyin his
melodic style and lyrical flow, it has got to be Gucci Mane. The
seasoned Atlanta rapperâs newest mixtape, Trap God 2,
unveils the same playful energy as Chicken Talk, which he put
out in 2006âa mere 27 mixtapes ago. As for Trap God 2,
Gucciâs classically lively beats and vocal intensity is back. Unlike some of his first releases, however, his tracks are now bolstered with
some of the most notable features in the gameâsuch as Lil Wayne,
Lloyd and Wiz Khalifa.
As a relative veteran in the swag movement, Gucci Maneâs Trap God 2 scratches that itch to just let loose. At the very least, the mixtapeâs rowdy beats will get you moving a little bit. AlthoughÂ Trap God 2 is underscored by persistently animated beatsÂ in its entirety, the numerous features on the mixtape work well to establish a dynamic pace to the 23 tracks. For instance, the first song, âBreak Dancinâ, plays off of Young Thugâs aggressive vocal style, as it is underscored by high pitched synthesizers and an incredibly heavy bass line. While âBreak Dancinâ certainly grants Gucci Mane with the fitting title âTrap Godâ, theÂ following track, âFly Shitâ, enjoys the same sense of trap melody while at the same time embracing Lloydâs softer R&B touch.
All in all, Gucci Maneâs Trap God 2 stays true to trap, boasting consistentlyenergetic beats, while being accompanied by a variety of prominent artists. The Southern rapper has released yet another mixtape that does not veer away from his initial style. So, Trap God 2 does not only display authentic Gucci Mane at its heart; itâs also authentically trap.
