AllMusic Review by

Coming three years after the first Step Brothers, which was a bona fide mixtape, Step Brothers Two finds Tennessee rappers Starlito and Don Trip reunited for a more official joint. This one even comes with official, video-supported singles like the betrayal-minded banger "Caesar and Brutus," a crafted song with full-on production that's preceded by the more street and mixtape cuts "4x4 Relay" (Starlito gets four bars, Don Trip gets four bars, and so on) and "Pimp C 3000" (a down-and-dirty tribute to the UGK member, straight from the mind of a mixtape). Everything hangs together well enough with hardcore hip-hop being the glue, plus the chemistry of the first mixtape is back with the added benefit of the duo sounding more proud, and maybe even more inspired, seeing as how both artists experienced a solo career come-up year in 2013.
