While several Booth-heads might have thought they had seen and heard the last of 2 Pistols following his negative response to our review of his debut album, Death Before Dishonor, he has since patched things up and is gearing up for what he hopes will be a fruitful new year. Following lackluster sales and a departure from Universal Republic, 2P has decided to start from scratch on his forthcoming sophomore album. From the sound of his new club banger Up & Down, it seems like he might have another hit on his hands. In addition to switching up his flow, the Tampa native has enlisted the help of Akon, who creates yet another catchy hook and further livens the record. Produced by one of Konvict Muzik’s in-house producers, Up & Down uses the same formula that made She Got It and You Know Me chart strong. The question is, will it work yet again?
