Review #1,448: Bigg Nick "Bond Money On Deck"

Reviewed on 2.28.2015 (Review #1,448)


‘Bout to review a CD, courtesy of Mac Soul & Exclusive Grind Entertainment: Bigg Nick Bond Money On Deck, which was just released. At first, I thought he was D-So from Da Jiggalaters (real name Derrick Stewart). However, it’s Bigg Nick from tha Mac Soul click (real name Dominic Stewart). Regardless, I told him I wanted a copy of this CD, and I got it! So, now that I’m not workin’ for a few dayz, lemme go ‘head and review this! Start Time: 5:15 PM | End Time: 6:12 PM


Disclaimer: I rate each song from 1.0 – 5.0; each rating iz my own opinion! I only please myself wit my ratings! I don’t care how lyrical you are, as long as it’s jammin’ enough for me to like it! I look for beats, then vocals, and then lyrics. To determine my favorites, I will differ tha 4.0 ratings. If a song gets at least a 4.0 rating from me, I love it already. If at least a 4.6 rating, I pretty much really love it, as it’s considered mindblowin’ when I hear it! Any song can earn up to a maximum of a 5.0 rating. Anything I type before “ >>> ” iz what I’m sayin’ before I listen to tha song; anything after I type “ >>> ” iz what I think of tha song while I’m listening to it. If you use tha word “swag” frequently, have auto-tune in your vocals, or talk about nothin’ but money and hoes (which I consider ‘typical’ topics), I’m not buyin’ it!

01. “Take A Ride Wit Me” feat. P.Bond
Of course, because tha dude that did tha artwork has no grammar skillz or double-checking skillz whatsoever, of course, tha title on tha back cover says, “Take Ride Wit Me,” without an “A.” Like, really? Thought he was done with?! >>> Likin’ tha beat; sounds like a good hook. Reminds me of tha dayz when I used to listen to Louisiana music and love it so much, lol; holy, Flashback Saturday? Continuing from tha hook, here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through “wit” some nice, regular-livin’ rhymes… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse from P.Bond and I’m actually dealin’ these lyrical rhymes; they’re not that boring ova this beat… And, here’s anotha verse from you, tha 3rd verse… It sounds great hearin’ your voice even more! Diggin’ tha fact that I just hit you up when I thought you was someone else! I still was like, “Okay,” not like, “Never mind,” ya dig? Like how you said, “Bruh,” on tha 3rd verse, too; always diggin’ that southern shit! My Rating: 4.3


02. “The One” feat. 2 Slugz
WTF @ tha feature? Like, why couldn’t this be 2009, back when niggaz were actually wantin’ to get a hold of me? Not now, when niggaz trick-see me and I’ve completely fallen off. Oh well, I’ll just skip tha featured parts so I can move on with my busy, never-endin’ schedule faster… >>> Nice beat, but we shall see, overall… Diggin’ how you comin’ through on tha 1st verse; good shit… Despite it bein’ your title, I’m not a fan of anything “money.” And, tha hook’s catchy, though tha voice effects can create borderline gayness; we already know that! Next…! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s actually you, again; sounds nice… My Rating: 4.0


03. “Move On” feat. Young Brock & J.Beezy
>>> Phone call startin’ this off… Nice southern-soundin’ beat; diggin’ it! Nice job witchu on tha 1st verse, here; keep grindin’! Tha hook sounds catchy, on a Baton Rouge tip, as far as tha voice… LOL, it’s about breakin’ up; lol, glad I ain’t neva had dat kinda shit! And, here comes tha 2nd verse, comin’ through, askin’ ‘em to, “Find anotha dick ta sit on,” lol. And, here’s tha 3rd verse… Sounds like a regular southern voice with a regular vibe; decent… My Rating: 3.8


04. “Outside Butter” feat. 2 Slugz & Bob
Good grief… >>> Sounds like an online beat… Title looked like some female reference or somethin’, but at least it’s a color/style reference; ridin’ in tha whip! Nice job wit tha hook, bruh! Feelin’ your energy wit your voice and all dat good shit! Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and it sounds pretty good ta hear; keep your aggression goin’! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds like it just flows over well from this Bob dude… And, it’s you on tha 3rd verse! Wow, it must be my lucky day for avoidin’ awkward vibes! Uh, only a few bars? How short? My Rating: 4.3


05. “Hustle Hard” feat. Red Dog
>>> This online beat sounds like it makes you provide an anthemic track… Hearin’ tha hook and it ain’t bad; don’t really fuck wit “bitch bad and my money good” as a combination. You already know those are two of my weaknesses. However, I do like how tha final bars of tha hook sounded; sounded like a build-up! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ good… Well, when I say, “Good,” it’s how you sound, not when you rap about “money!” Hearin’ Red Dog on tha 2nd verse and although tha voice iz nice, I’m not a fan of “money” rhymes, once again! Surprisingly, I’m diggin’ his rhymes about tha bitches! Sounds catchy when he continuously spits about ‘em! My Rating: 3.7


06. “Tool On Ya” feat. Jack & Trigger Troy
>>> Sounds like some nice throwback beat from, like, ’06, ‘07 or somethin’, back when my Louisiana connection was pickin’ off tha ground! This that pure sound; diggin’ tha gangsta shit on tha hook! This gotta be one of our well-known Baton Rouge producers on tha beat! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds pretty nice; you really got shit goin’ on, here! See, no “money, money, money, I got money” bullshit on this track, here! Notice how my interest’s higher! It’s like, we need ta kill—with a huge AK-47—kill all rap about “money,” ASAP! Until then, I’ll just let it go in one ear and out anotha! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and you sound great on this verse; good shit! Definitely feelin’ your aggression! Luv how you’re almost 32 and you holdin’ shit down like this, as far as your content, aggression, style, and everythang you all about; good shit!! And, here’s tha 3rd verse—whataya know, they said, “AK-47,” just like I did; psychic prediction? I picked a random gun, but thought of somethin’ big! Funny ‘cause this title has to do wit a gun, as well, lol! But yeah, nice job wit tha 3rd verse; good shit! My Rating: 4.5


07. “Ballin’ & I Know It” feat. Young Racks
>>> Really not for me with all this “money” obsession, but I’ll continue to listen ‘cause it’s you… Tha hook’s kinda cocky, but I’m kinda diggin’ it ‘cause you technically are “ballin’ & I [do] know it,” ya dig…? Let’s hope you do some services with me, as far as a commercial, YouTube upload, DatPiff upload, etc., whateva it may be… As long as I get a lotta your “bond money,” ya feel me? Hearin’ tha 1st verse from Young Racks—oh, dear God, his name—and it’s what it iz; no comment, nothin’ negative ta say… Nice shit from you on tha 2nd verse; I can dig when you spit shit… My Rating: 3.5


½time: Sounds like a nice-soundin’ CD; I’m definitely diggin’ your voice! Lookin’ on my blog and I heard you from an ex-person, a.k.a. 2 Slugz, back on October 30, 2013, on his No Handouts CD; I thought your name was familiar… Also, you’ve been my Facebook friend since September 2011 (a few friend requests, I think?). Anyway, it sounds great wit how you comin’ through on this! Thought it would be a lil’ worse with tha “money” shit, especially in tha album’s title, but this sounds like some nice quality! Therefore, tha average CD rating’s a 4.0, at tha moment!


08. “Go”
>>> LOL at, “Hey, this tha best kept secret!” Sounds like some good rappin’, here, as far as tha verse… Nice and simple wit tha “Go, go, go, go…,” on tha hook, too… My Rating: 3.9


09. “I’ma Gangsta” feat. J.Beezy
>>> Diggin’ how this sounds, for a start; sounds like some more excitin’ Louisiana music that sounds like tha past! Ooh, those good flashback feelings! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice; good shit from dat Beezy dude, on tha hook! And, he’s on tha 1st verse, here, comin’ through wit some Baton Rouge, gutta, southern, grill-gleamin’, gangsta-soundin’ shit; yeah! And, here you are on tha 2nd verse; just luvin’ tha continuous aggression! Definitely sounds great ta hear! Feelin’ your continuous aggression on tha 3rd verse, as well; whoot, whoot!! Such energy you have on this track!! No wonder why err-body luvs my energy at work! Lil’ did they know all this energetic Louisiana injected itself into me, over tha years! My Rating: 4.5


10. “She Told Me That”
>>> And, it continues! Anotha nice-soundin’ beat and yeah, even on a sex/female tip, it’s soundin’ real catchy! Diggin’ how you describe some of tha shit you got goin’ on, here, like, goin’ on, lol… And, hearin’ tha hook and it sounds nice; catchy fa a regular title like this… And, tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too; good shit! My Rating: 4.2


11. “Strokin’” feat. Mac Soul
>>> This sounds nice; anotha nice-soundin’ track fa tha bitches! Good shit on tha 1st verse, here, ova this beat, and tha hook’s pretty catchy, too! Holy, smellin’ tha “pussy!” ‘Puss-aye!!’ Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ pretty nice, too; diggin’ what you got goin’ on, here… Huh? An unlisted dude on tha 3rd verse? Since he said, “Mac,” or somethin’, before tha verse started, I’mma assume it’s Mac Soul? Anyway, nice lil’ voice ta collab on this track witchu; diggin’ it… My Rating: 4.1


12. “She Say” feat. P.Bond
>>> Sounds like anotha nice-soundin’ beat! Some singin’ on tha hook…; ehh, okay, I’ll accept it, since it goes good wit this beat… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ good; decent way ta flow through, but at least it’s less than three minutes long, overall… Hearin’ P on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some “G”-shit; nice fa tha south… My Rating: 3.6


13. “Show Out” feat. Young Brock
>>> Ugh, just heard a Q-Red beat tag; holy, exes! Should I bring out Veronica, have her sing Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” and be like, “I got a blank space, baby, and I’ll write your name?” Feels like it’s been a ½ decade since that dude took me serious! I, like, ain’t even have a car and drive, at tha time, ROFL!! What a loser I was!! All I can say iz, thank God people like him influenced me to slowly fall off! With that bein’ said, tha hook sounds good and you sound great on tha 1st verse! I refuse to leave feedback on tha production, so just try and detect how I’m feelin’ about tha track, overall, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice wit this Young Brock dude! Speakin’ of tha line, “‘Cause I’m shittin’ on you niggaz,” I always wanna interview Q-Red fa this pic:
Like, on March 30, 2010, he started a movement: Tha shittin’ pic, which was later popularized by DJ B-Real! Like, I wanna interview Q-Red and be like, “When you took this pic, what made you think of it?” I mean, I posted on MySpace in January of ’06 a pic of me on tha toilet, eatin’ pizza bagels, but yeah… Anyway, tha rest of this shit was nice ta hear, as well! My Rating: 4.4


14. “Tenderoni”
>>> Nice beat start and it sounds nice witchu on tha 1st verse… Diggin’ how tha beat slowly adds sounds to it! Tha hook sounds nice with this ‘90s-soundin’ R&B sample; good job… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ pretty nice, too… And, tha 3rd verse’s good, too; good shit! My Rating: 4.2


15. “The Lights” feat. Mac Soul
>>> A slow-soundin’ beat ta end this CD off, and it’s soundin’ pretty catchy… Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and it’s nice; lol, your voice calmed down… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s okay; sounds like a soft way ta end this CD off… And, here’s Mac Soul on tha 2nd verse, with tha same voice as that one track with tha unidentified feature… Anyway, he sounds good on this track, but this track’s too slow for me, overall. It ain’t bad, but, you know, I’m all about energy! My Rating: 3.4


Overall: I thought this was a pretty good CD! You definitely got a great voice fa your age! It kinda reminds me of me, 10 years from now, when I gon turn 37! I’ve developed real slowly over tha years, due to my autism and my family’s first autistic family member. However, I’m now on top, doin’ what I want! Yeah, it took till age 26, but I’m glad it took tha amount of time it did! I mean, for example, I discovered Q-Red at, like, age 20, but it would’ve been hell if I was drivin’, back then! Like, didn’t want anyone at my job thinkin’ I like people that don’t show me luv! So, now that I have a job and all these chicks be diggin’ me, there’s NO Q-Red, B-Real, etc. comin’ outta my mouth, as far as promotion! It sux ‘cause nothing’s ever my fault! Y’all just can’t handle my consistency and are so unprofessional!! But yeah, with that bein’ said, keep on grindin’! Cut out annoying, inconsiderate, self-centered people! I gave up self-centered, bitch-made people for Lent!!
