2 Chainz 'Used 2' single and video review. The track ‘used 2’ is off 2 chainz second studio album titled BOATS II: Me Time. The track brings back the 90’s hip hop vibe and was produced by Mannie Fresh. According to 2 chainz, Mannie produced the beat during a visit to his home studio in Atlanta on his ipad! (Pretty dope right?). The beat is quite sick and very catchy and according to Mannie, he wanted to make something that was easy to dance and ‘twerk’ to. To be honest, the string used in the beat really makes it easy on the ears and sounds similar to Juveniles 90’s hit ‘Back that ass up’. Although some would argue that the energy 2 chainz used throughout the whole track doesn’t match the simplicity and less sophistication of the lyrics he chose. Personally, I feel it makes it easy to sing along to and has that hint of Lil John’s crunk flow with the repeated use of the word ‘yeah’ throughout the track. The video was shot in New Orleans which happens to be the birth place of 2 chainz and ‘Twerking’ (True!). The video also had all elements of the 90’s all over it from the long stretch hummer, booty shaking, to oversized T-shirts and gold chains. The video also features a throwback to an almost reunited ‘Hot Boys’ which 2 chainz was once part of with appearances from Lil Wayne, Mannie Fresh, Turk and Juvenile. The last member BG is currently serving a 14 year jail time but was represented all over the video with the free BG t-shirts. So combining a sick beat, good verses, catchy hook, and an amazing video, I think it’s safe to say that both 2 chainz and Mannie have successfully created another hip hop banger that has all the ingredients of a hit song. My love for the beat has made me add it to my next mixtape which isn’t out yet but, you can watch the HD video of my ‘Yuck’ remix by 2 chainz below. Please leave a comment if you’ve enjoyed this blog and have suggestions about anyone you’ll want me to blog about.
