Label: Universal Music Group
Released: June 16
“Good Drank,” a double-cup, Mike Dean-blessed track featuring Quavo and Gucci Mane, is one of the Atlanta-est songs of all time, and you can thank 2 Chainz for putting it together. That alone should be enough to land the garishly pink Pretty Girls Like Trap Music on this list, but there’s more! There’s a Nicki Minaj feature, if you like that sort of thing (Aretha Franklin likely didn’t), a Drake feature, a Travis Scott feature—features galore for a guy who made his name doing features for everybody else.
The Artist Formerly Known as Tity Boi is 40 now, but this is just his third solo project, meaning he’s still got plenty of stories to tell about himself. He goes all the way in on “Burglar Bars”—"See my verses are better and my subject is realer / See my mom was an addict and my dad was the dealer.” But there’s more! A Pharrell feature, a Migos feature, the ridiculously catchy “Rolls Royce Bitch” with its “the doors go dat way!” chorus. 2 Chainz may be the ‘10’s answer to Busta Rhymes, a feature king for a new generation, but he can more than hold his own ON his own as well. —Russ Bengtson
