AllMusic Review by

Much like the first volume released a year earlier in 2001, Hi Power Soldiers, Book 2 features several of the rappers affiliated with the southern California Chicano rap label Hi Power, best known for launching the career of Mr. Capone-E. In addition to Capone-E, this compilation also features tracks by Malow, Mr. Criminal, Lil Dreamer, Snapper, Daffy, Payaso, Nfumis, Brown Boy, and Lucky. Though neither the rappers nor the producers are relatively exceptional or even impressive, they do represent the burgeoning California Chicano rap scene in the early '00s. On a par with the first volume, Hi Power Soldiers, Book 2 functions as an excellent sampler for the label, showcasing the several artists on Hi Power.
