Although it certainly wasn't planned that way, Charge It 2 da Game was No Limit's first major release since the breakthrough success of Master P's Ghetto D. Like any No Limit album, Charge It 2 da Game is primarily notable for the way it co-opts current trends. Granted, it doesn't sound as derivative as Ghetto D, possibly because Snoop Doggy Dogg, Ice Cube, and Eightball & MJG make guest appearances, along with the usual cast of No Limit refugees. Silkk himself is a fine rapper, but he's not particularly distinctive, and neither are the backing tracks. It's an improvement from the scattershot violence 'n' misogyny of his debut, The Shocker, and it's better than many of its No Limit peers, but Charge It 2 da Game is by and large just an average gangsta album.
