Pretty Girls Like Trap Music (stylized as Pretty Girls 👍 TRΛP MUSIC) is the fourth studio album by American rapper 2 Chainz. It was issued on June 16, 2017, by Def Jam Recordings, as the follow-up to ColleGrove, his 2016 collaborative effort with Lil Wayne, the album features guest appearances from Jhené Aiko, Drake, Gucci Mane, Swae Lee, Migos, Nicki Minaj, Monica, Pharrell, Quavo, Travis Scott, Trey Songz and Ty Dolla Sign. The album's production was handled by FKi, Honorable C.N.O.T.E., Mike Dean, Mike Will Made It and Murda Beatz, among others.

The album was supported by three official singles: "Good Drank", "It's a Vibe" and "4 AM". The album was also supported by a nationwide concert tour, as well as several pop-up shops in the US.[1][2] 2 Chainz alluded to the album showing "growth and maturation." He stated the content would maintain its edginess while also elevating trap music to a point where everyone can appreciate it. Pretty Girls Like Trap Music received widespread critical acclaim, with most critics citing the album as his best album yet.[3][4]

Background[edit]

2 Chainz embarked on his music career under the moniker Tity Boi, alongside Dolla Boy, in the hip hop group Playaz Circle. The group was signed to fellow Georgia-based rapper Ludacris' Disturbing tha Peace (DTP) label imprint. Playaz Circle went on to release two albums under the label, with their debut spawning the hit single "Duffle Bag Boy"; in 2007, 2 Chainz began to release solo material, later securing a solo recording contract with Def Jam Recordings in 2012.[5] Following his record deal, Def Jam issued 2 Chainz's solo major-label debut Based on a T.R.U. Story, in August. Def Jam went on to release his follow-up albums B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time (2013) and ColleGrove (2016).

On January 2, 2017, at an Atlanta Hawks press conference, 2 Chainz revealed his fourth album would be titled Pretty Girls Like Trap Music;[6][7] in May 2017, 2 Chainz appeared on The View, where he said fans should expect "growth and maturation" on the album.[8] He continued, saying "It's still edgy content, but trap music is kinda defined as low socioeconomic background music where you have to hustle to get out. And it's a situation where a lot of good girls used to like the bad guys, and that's what this album is about."[9][10] In an interview with Rolling Stone, 2 Chainz said the album title came from "beautiful girls who like this hustler– who you think would be attracted to a whole other type of music, but they like Migos, Future. You get with this girl, and you want to play Bryson Tiller, but she's like, 'I want to hear Gucci.'"[11]

Recording and production[edit]

We're the pop stars. Trap rap is pop now. People's ears have adjusted to what we have to say and how we say it.
— 2 Chainz in a June 2017 interview with Rolling Stone.[11]

On June 1, 2017, 2 Chainz was interviewed by the LA Leakers where the conversation turned to the album's creative direction, and 2 Chainz spoke on the tracklist and production.[12] "I didn't force any features. When you hear the track it sounds like its supposed to be those voices on the track."[12] He also spoke on Pharrell Williams' contribution to the project, saying that Williams one of the album's final collaborators: "He's a great producer, so I think he brought to the table what he felt was missing from the project." The final result is what 2 Chainz calls "top tier yacht music."[12] In an interview with Rolling Stone, 2 Chainz said he continued the art of memorizing all his rhymes before recording for this album: "I don't like writing down anything. I feel like I could waste a good idea on just listening to a track. I don't want to hear 15 beats. I don't want to waste my studio time listening to beats. When I come, I want to work. Load them up. I'm going to come off the top. And out of the three [beats chosen by a producer], I hope one of them is something I can keep or keep going off of."[11]

Release and promotion[edit]

In August 2016, 2 Chainz released the mixtape, Daniel Son; Necklace Don, which includes the single "Big Amount", featuring a guest appearance from Canadian rapper Drake, while the production was handled by Buddah Bless. "Big Amount" was officially released on September 23, 2016,[13] and reached number 44 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.[14] In October 2016, 2 Chainz released the mixtape Hibachi for Lunch, which contains the song "Good Drank", the song would later be released for purchase and go on to serve as a digital exclusive track for the album.

In February 2017, in anticipation for the album, 2 Chainz partnered with Spotify for an ongoing series of playlists with the same title, during the time, 2 Chainz collaborated with Karrueche Tran, Erykah Badu and Cardi B to offer listeners "the best in new trap music." The playlist also includes personal favorites of each "pretty girl" who helped curate.[15] On March 10, Spotify released the updated playlist, which was assisted by his frequent collaborator Nicki Minaj. Making the list were 2 Chainz's two newest tracks "It's a Vibe" and "Smartphone". Minaj also contributed her three new releases "No Frauds", "Changed It", and "Regret In Your Tears".

On June 19, 2 Chainz released the music video for "Blue Cheese" featuring Atlanta-based hip hop trio Migos, the video, directed by The Daps, was described by The Fader as featuring the rappers "in front of what appears to be a trapped-out housing complex. A large, cross-shaped platform in the courtyard hosts the four rappers, as well as a cadre of beautiful women, as they dance and stunt in couture over the course of the song's three verses."[27] On June 20, 2 Chainz released the video for "Sleep When U Die", which was directed by Joe Moore,[28] the music video for "Trap Check", which was filmed in black and white and directed by Howard Ross, followed on June 23.[29]

Pretty Girls Like Trap Music received widespread acclaim from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 82, based on 10 reviews.[41] Andy Kellman of AllMusic stated that "Inconspicuousness notwithstanding, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music is among Epps' most significant and enjoyable work."[42] Paul A. Thompson of Pitchfork wrote: "Pretty Girls Like Trap Music's penultimate song, the one before Farrakhan, is a Pharrell duet that sounds as if it was parachuted in from another, much softer album, one you'll hear in a fast casual restaurant seven years from now, just like the penultimate song from The Blueprint 3. 2 Chainz is exactly the same age today that Jay-Z was in 2009. But where Jay was running out of steam, 2 Chainz sounds like he's finally hitting his stride. If not royalty, then the next best thing."[49] Calum Slingerland of Exclaim! said, "If Pretty Girls Like Trap Music doesn't make the rapper an immediate king of the South, it undoubtedly puts him in line for the title."[45] Writing for HipHopDX, Trent Clark concluded, "Despite the lack of range, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music goes down as 2 Chainz' strongest LP to date and will become a reference point for anyone curious about how the towering rap star can service their turn-up needs."[46]

In his review, Grant Rindner of PopMatters states, "His talent has undeniably caught up to his hard work, and all we can hope now is that the latter doesn't suffer because of the former."[48] DJBooth editor Yoh, wrote: "Tity Boi stepped up to the plate. Not only did he deliver an album that highlights his strengths as an artist, you can hear the effort, this isn't a lazy release, an album because an album is required. You hear an artist who wanted to prove something, who wanted to prove that he hasn't come this far to fall off."[4] Yoh ended the review with "I believe the album can solidify Chainz as one of the best out of Atlanta. I don't just mean that in a present-tense, either. I think Chainz is showing why he can stand alongside Jeezy, T.I. and Gucci. He didn't blow up during their peak era but he is carrying their torch, he isn't trying to be like the new trap kids—he knows he isn't Playboi Carti—but he doesn't need to be. He's 2 Chainz."[4] Will Lavin, an author for Clash, said, "While it doesn't quite have the same urgency as Based on a T.R.U. Story or T.R.U. REALigion, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music is perfectly positioned to be a 2017 favourite catering to both fans of this generation's trap music and those that were knee deep in trap during its late '90s/early '00s inception."[44]
