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.

Pitchfork
This is the culmination of an eight-year second-wind. It’s also the most complete 2 Chainz album to date, and places him where he belongs: in the upper echelon of rappers from this era.

Exclaim!

Pretty Girls Like Trap Music is the Southern vet's most fully formed record to date, building on the spirit and sonics of last year's Daniel Son; Necklace Don and Hibachi for Lunch to paint a portrait of Chainz then and now, leading two very different lifestyles yet unequivocally himself.

AllMusic

Inconspicuousness notwithstanding, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music is among Epps' most significant and enjoyable work.

PopMatters

His fourth studio album, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, isn’t just a testament to endurance, it’s one of the year’s best rap albums and a blueprint for graceful aging in an industry that prizes youthful excitement and innovation.

XXL

Although a bit reliant on features, resulting in lost opportunities for 2 Chainz to really dig deep within himself and give the listeners more of Tauheed Epps the man, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music is an explosive collection of songs that showcases the colorful rhyme animal at the top of his game.

There’s no galactic change to his style here, just a further refinement of it.

2 Chainz has stepped up his game on ‘Pretty Girls Like Trap Music’, while he hasn’t explored the trap genre quite as much as he could’ve in the album’s hour-long duration, the effort is prevalent, and the execution is deadly.

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.

i honestly was not expecting this to be anything special after hearing it's a vibe, but dammit this is great. 2 chainz is a mad genius.

Most of these tracks are just a bunch of decent flows over some generic trap beats. They sort of sound like Metro beats but not hypnotizing or dark, just kind of spacy and uninteresting. His voice is not bad and definitely is pretty unique, he kind of sounds like the Jay Z of trap, in only their voices, not their influence or style. I also appreciate the amount of features, normally they take away the enjoyment but they actually break up the monotony of only hearing only 2 chains. I also don't ... read more

2Chainz is one of the godfathers of trap and he certifies himself a legend by releasing this gem. The production on these songs is different and matches with 2Chainz' bassy-trap voice. I always had a weak spot for Future/2chainz' low straight-from-the-gutter vocals, they feel empowering.

While 2 Chainz continues to not take himself too seriously on this album, the levity that has become the 2 Chainz ethos matures a little on Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, presenting listeners with a far more cohesive, complete listen than we've ever seen before.

Outside of Realize, It's A Vibe, Big Amount, Bailan & the second half of OG Kush Diet, I freakin love everything about this album. I did not in a million years expect 2 Chainz to come through with a project that I love, anything's possible I guess...
