Blue Chips 2 (Atlantic)

The first Blue Chips paired burly Queens rapper Action Bronson with production duo Party Supplies. The result was a bloated, boozy rager, the sort of thing that lifted samples straight off YouTube links and reveled in the zonked-out magic of two creative parties who wholly understand each other. Blue Chips 2 returns to the same well and fishes out the same, endlessly quotable results. "Playing poker on the riverboat/Hid the ace, long rifle in my bitch's coat/Flip off the balcony/Knife to the throat/Ice in the coke/Coke on the table/Wild n' out in Roanoke" ("It Concerns Me"). There's not a spark of anger, either. Action Bronson used to be a chef; now he makes his money rapping. If he sounds joyful, playful, and free of burden, that's because he's literally living his dream. Bronson, Party Supplies – stick around for the long haul. (12:15am, the Main)
