Review #1,720: Prime Time "Duck Tape'n"

Reviewed on 4.29.2017 (Review #1,720)


My next review in my Louisiana Reviewz Marathon iz Prime Time, which iz tha alias for Partners-N-Crime, Duck Tape’n, released in 1998 on South Coast Music Group & was produced by Leroy “Precise” Edwards! Start Time: 1:52 AM | End Time: 2:53 AM


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 sound like anything too mainstream for me, have auto-tune in your vocals, or talk about nothin’ but money and hoes (which I consider ‘typical’ topics), I’m not buyin’ it!
