"This is the second collection of bass filled tracks that came out in 1997 by the "So So Def" label, which curiously is owned by Jermaine Dupri yet doesn't feature his trademark sound very much. Also noteworthy, this collection doesn't feature tracks by superstars that were (and still are) on the label like the Da Bart or Jagged Edge. This is collection is something fresh and fun. It features some of the funkiest booty bass music out there by rap stars like the raunchy Luke on "So So Def Quad" and Zae on the bouncy "Booty Time". While freestyle rap with big bass is all over the set, R&B singers like Virgo (who sings sweetly on two seductive street jams) really get this disc into overdrive. Inoj's cover of "Love You Down", with its swaying dance beat still gets a ton of radioplay. Unfortunately, the first single by Corina, which was a more upbeat version of "Summertime, Summertime", was not so lucky and only a limited shelf life. Gucci Crew II shines on the old schoolish "Sally (That Girl)".There is no denying that the hit singles that these sets yielded are impressive. "Volume 2" also includes a somewhat lagging remix of the infectious R&B smash "My Boo" by Ghostown DJs. While "So So Def" doesn't break much from the classic art of "Booty Bass" or whatever you would like to call this urban mix of bass filled music but it is an excellent listen with some very talented people. Not a lot of collection from a label can claim creating big hits like "So So Def Bass All Stars" but I would have liked this type of music with these artists to have been all over the radio. I miss Luke (who was a big part of 2 Live Crew and has successful independent records) and wish that Corina would have another hit (this is the same Corina that had the freestyle hit "Temptation" in 1991). This set of songs is amazing, blazing and just so so def! For fans of R&B wanting something a little bit out of the ordinary that is as funky as you can get, buy this collection. My only complaint is that the original slower version of "My Boo" is better than the remix on this disc. Other than that, this one is a booty shaker!"

"Referring to the last review which said that the first Bass All-Stars had only one good song...are you CRAAAZY!? The first one was the BEST. "My Boo" by Ghosttown DJ's "killed" booty-shake. They just tried to recreate that hit with volumes 2 & 3. The first one was actual TRUE Booty-Shake!! I'm from Atlanta, I know better. Booty is RAP, not R&B!"
Shake ya booty

"I dont have to much booty shakin music. If I have one you know its good. THis is a great mix of booty shaking and r&b music. THats why this is better than the first vol.1 cd, its more versitle.THe first cd was pretty much booty music. I prefer the r&b songs they are unique, very cool sounding. They are tracks 3,4,5,7,8,. See how what atlanta had to offer before the crunk."
