2 Chainz, “Trap Check”
Even if “Trap Check” didn’t sample Jeezy’s “Get Ya Mind Right” and T.I.’s “ASAP” — two songs dear to my trap-loving heart — it would still tick all the boxes for a great trap standard. There’s nothing I want more from this kind of Atlanta-bred sound than a murderous beat (bless you Buddah Bless) and a grocery list of humblebrags delivered any way but humbly. Pretty Girls Like Trap Music is fast becoming my favorite 2 Chainz album with every repeat listen. —DL
