Did Chief Keef Resurrect ‘Old Sosa’ In ‘Back From The Dead 2?’ (Review)

Sosa’s original “Back From The Dead” mixtape set him on a path to stardom. This tape included the hot single “I Don’t Like.” It comes as no surprise why excitement surrounded the release of his planned sequel. Sosa released his “Back From The Dead 2” on Halloween. This is the first mixtape project Sosa released since his October 2013 release of “Almighty So.” Fans have continuously flooded Keef’s mentions on Twitter calling for him to return to his former self. Sosa adopted a slurred flow following the release of his debut album “Finally Rich.” Sosa claims he switched up his flow due to copycats. It’s not necessarily a bad thing for Keef to try new things. That’s the definition of an artist. Variety is what we can expect from the former Interscope artist. Sosa switched it up once again on his “BFTD2.” For example, he produced a majority of the project. He learned some production techniques from none other than Young Chop- the same producer behind “I Don’t Like.” Chop wasn’t entirely absent from BFTD2 despite Sosa taking on a major role on the tape’s production. Chop lent his talents on tracks “Feds” and “Stupid.”

Another highlight of this project was the Gucci Mane-assisted record “Paper.” The production on this joint was handled by 808 Mafia. Money is never an issue for Sosa and Gucci Mane.

Guwop, who handles the hook on this record, hits this verse, rapping, “I just touched down in Jamaica, I’ma try to smoke two acres/Send a n-gga to his maker, be cheaper to cremate ya/F-ck the n-gga and the b-tch that made ya/You ain’t really doing that major/Gotta eat for the water extendo, like ball bally water.”

Sosa raps, “They like son, why you running through 100 thousand/I ain’t never had no paper/I ain’t never had no paper/I ain’t Wop, I ain’t Jay, but I was making 500 every day.”

Other standout tracks on this tape include “Wayne,” “Dear” “Wheres Waldo” “Blurry” and “Faneto.”

What fans learned from Sosa on this project is that he can go back to his former coherent self. I dig Sosa for trying something new, but the slurred speech wasn’t working. Drugs may have also had an impact on Sosa’s art. Keef revealed to fans that he is kicking the habit of the dangerous drug Xanax one day at a time. Fans can regard BFTD2 as an appetizer for his main course- “Bang 3.” Sosa plans to release his sophomore album “Bang 3” on Dec. 25. Sosa is giving fans more music before the release of B3. Aside from Sosa’s plans to “leak” some music from B3, he is also prepping the release of “Mansion Musick.” He is scheduled to drop “Thot Breaker” on Valentines Day, Feb. 14, 2015.
