Review #25: Natureboy Rowe "Texas Sensation"

Reviewed On 8.17.2007 (Review No. 25)

Okay Natureboy - This iz tha 2nd mixtape I'm checkin' out from ya (I checked out "Dallas Hottest Commodity" back in tha Fall of '06, but I never thought of giving a review for it) - This iz my review for "Texas Sensation" mixtape - Before I go, I'm going to rate tha songs on how much I like each one on a first listen, and what I currently think of them - Any song I've played/heard a bunch of times I will give my current review and my Current Rating - Any song I never heard before I will have a preview (anything typed before ">>>"), and a review, as well as a rating for a first listen - A rating of 4.0 iz very good for a first listen - I will determine which one my favorite iz by increasing tha 4.0 rating up to 5.0 (which I rarely give out) - Now then, here I go wit my review of tha "Texas Sensation" mixtape! Start Time: 10:15 PM

01. "Intro"
I think I heard it a long time ago, so lemme re-hear >>> Yeah that good lil' intro, and I like all those "wat up"'s - Nice rhymes on it - Since it's a rap in tha intro, I'm gonna give it a rating - My Rating: 4.0

02. "This In You"
Oh so you threw this one on tha mixtape I see... I think there should've been a better starting song than this, but this iz still good - This song iz a very good produced song IMO - Tha hook reminds me of tha T.I. & Nelly song "Get Loose" from tha "Urban Legend" CD - Nice rhymes on this female joint - It's slightly better than "Go Live" - My Current Rating: 4.4

03. "Back To The Hood"
Okay I never heard this one... first new joint for me on tha mixtape, so I have a High AL (anticipation level)!! >>> Oh nice on tha "I Luv It" beat - Nice hook - Pretty good right here Natureboy - My Rating: 3.8

04. "I'm Not Them"
I believe this has been one of my, or maybe my FAVORITE underground rap track of '07 - It TOTALLY speaks for itself - Tha whole song defines me - I don't do anything like everyone else pretty much - "Who Knows", you might even win some awards for this song on my 2007 Awards - Oh and how weird it's No. 4 on tha mixtape - 4 iz my favorite number - It has been holding on strong as a "near-death" song on my playlist (meaning I played it a lot, it got kinda old for me, but I still wanna play it here and there), and it's up to 28 whopping weeks already on my playlist (it's also tha only "near-death" song to stay around since I started tha "near-death" songs on my playlist back in May) - Oh you changed tha intro a lil' bit, and this sounds like it has a lower pitch in it - When you said "dawg" twice right before tha first verse ended, I wound up figuring I'd really enjoy this song more, and so I did - I still love it today after playing it for over a ½ year already! - It sounds like it's mixing into a song I never heard before - Either way, "I'm Not Them" iz one of my favorite songs by you - My Current Rating: 5.0

05. "In My Pocket"
Yup never heard it before, and High AL on it (I have a High AL on pretty much every song you make) >>> Maybe I heard this song before? It sounds real old (maybe from tha "DHC" mixtape?), but I remember it from somewhere, and it sounds real good (love that "boi-i-i-i-ing!") - I like that math line before tha 1:00 mark - And it looks like it's mixing into a song I never heard before again (maybe) - Either way, real hot - My Current Rating: 4.5

06. "Have A Party" Feat. Rashad
Yeah this one might've been on your site or somethin'... >>> I'm glad it ain't over tha Mobb Deep/50 Cent beat - Rashad sounds pretty good singin' on this - I believe this iz old, and I never heard it yet - Again, nice rhymes Natureboy - You sounded great on this joint - My Rating: 3.9

07. "Introducing Southpaw"
I never heard Southpaw before (I know they ur buddies), so if this a song, then I wanna hear it - If it's a skit, then I wanna hear it also >>> They sound pretty good - Not bad lil' "Knockin' Doorz Down" version of their's - Next song sounds like it's going into somethin' wit "Front, Back"? I hope so - My Rating: 3.6

08. "Ain't Knocking" (a.k.a. "Gone Happen (Mixtape Version)")
Iz this "Gone Happen" or somethin' 'cause I was just singin' it myself >>> Oh it ain't tha "Front, Back" beat, my bad - Yeah this did pretty decent on my playlist - I thought you had a real nice flow & rhymes over this beat - My Current Rating: 4.1

09. "So Fly (I'm Fly)"
Now I'm singin' another song... "so fly, so cool..." Who tha hell sung that? I forgot (maybe I'll think of it later), but lemme hear this joint >>> Ooh nice beat - Your voice sounds real low pitch on this - Nice hook, and nice first verse - Oh that "So Fly" song I was singin' before was by Wes Fif - Anyway, great 2nd verse, and it looks like "Keep It Rocking" iz next... uh oh (find out wit my review for it) - My Rating: 3.9

10. "Keep It Rocking"
Was really feelin' it when I first heard it on Dirty South Radio, but after a few weeks it sizzled down for me, and I kinda am avoiding this song now wit playing it 'cause it reminds me a lil' of that shitty-ass-gay-ass 2nd semester I had at college (mainly during tha end of March & April), but either way, "Keep It Rocking" iz that joint - Of course, King Stunna iz a beast on tha beats - I always thought you put a lot of effort into this song 'cause it sounds great how u made it - I always really liked that bridge part "looooooook at meeeeeeeeeeee, I'm 100 from my headdddd to my feeeeeeeeet..." that whole part was, and still iz tha shit - It sounds like "Go Live" iz next since I heard that "yeaaah" at tha end - My Current Rating: 4.3

11. "Go Live"
This iz that club banger right there - It has "club" written all over it! - It feels like every song sounds slower on tha pitch now, but it's all good 'cause it sounds good - Oh wow we go from dirty version of "Keep It Rocking" (which I always had tha clean version) to a clean version of "Go Live" (which I have tha dirty version) - Lol @ that mix up - Ewe "nipple" censored? Yuck - "Gun" censored? More yuckness - Well I'm not judging tha song by its cleaness on tha mixtape luckily for you, so here goes my rating - My Current Rating: 4.3 (deduction would've been down to 4.1)

12. "Car Wash"
Lol @ tha title - I like it for Natureboy Rowe! High AL! >>> Lol @ tha "Magic City" beat - Nice lil' selection there - Hook sounds good - Love that line "roarin' like tha Lion King" - Real good first verse - Lol @ "my nigga came thru and spilled some chips" - I really like that line 'cause it's somethin' different - Very good for a beat I already heard before! - My Rating: 4.4

13. "I Talk That"
You said "Big Tuck" (I think) before tha song ended, so I'm guessin' it's on tha "I Know U Want That" beat? Lemme see >>> I was wrong, this beat sounds really old (I can't think of what it iz - I don't think it's Young Capone "What It Iz") - I like that "I gots flow like tha...uh..." line - Now this beat iz drivin' me nuts (can't think of what it was originally) - Good flowin' on tha track again - Another great line "look I'm ROWE...!!" - Aight I'm lookin' thru my iTunes library to see what that beat was *looks* - I just re-heard tha beginning of your version, and just remembered that it was Young Capone "Lights, Camera, Action" (from January 2006, which I got 3 months before Dirty South Radio) - Either way, My Rating: 4.0

14. "How To Act (Willy Biggs Mix)"
I don't remember what this originally sounded like, but I guess it's gettin' remixed, so lemme hear it >>> Oh WOW real nice flowwwww boyyyy!! "I stay fly, I think I see Mars" <- LOVE that line!! - Ooh nice mixin' tha beats - You definately know "how to act" on this joint - I really liked that one right there - My Rating: 4.6

15. "Get Mo (Da Ish)"
Yeah this was that anthem right there!! Glad u included it onto this mixtape! That hook iz SO OFF THA CHAIN!! - I love that "masturbating trunk" line, it's so funny, yet so good, lol - Where does "Da Ish" come from in tha ID? But yeah, definately an anthem that I still really feel - My Current Rating: 4.8

16. "Flow No. 1"
Let's see what this iz about >>> It sounds like you recorded your vocals off of somethin' different wit this one - Nice lil' flow - I don't have much to say about it - My Rating: 3.5

17. "I Sag" Feat. Yung Mike
Yay you put this song wit Yung Mike on here!! Love tha hook, and I LOVED it a lot better during my break from college! "Belt buckle made of chrome" - Yeah it's tha perfect "so fresh" song right here!! - My Current Rating: 4.7

18. "My Wheels Clean"
Yup another classic banger right here! I knew this was on here, and here it iz finally - I remember you tellin' me you recorded this when you had tha flu, a cold, or somethin' (that u were sick), but in tha end, it became a banger! I didn't add it quickly, but then it became a HUGE anthem for me at my college during tha 2nd semester (before tha gay-ass bullshit) - I like how you mixed tha outro to its own intro - Still a banger, it never gets old! - My Current Rating: 4.4

19. "I Rap"
Yes you kept tha title like that - Second song I heard from you back on October 14, 2006, and I fell in love wit tha beat (I didn't even know it was somebody else's beat) - I play it here and there, and it brings back memories to when I got knocked out in a hospital (because they took blood out of me), and that great 1st semester I had at college - Oh yeah I remember when I first heard this, and that title "I Rap", I remember really likin' your titles to your songs - My Current Rating: 4.6

20. "So A1"
What's this? >>> *Gets excited* It looks like it's tha shout outs!!! - Oh whoops I'm gettin' excited to early - Nice lil' hook right here - Nice 1st verse right there - I like tha "like Slim & Baby, I got cash money" line - This iz nice and smooth right here - My Rating: 3.8

21. "Diddy Rock"
Let's see this song (High AL) >>> Lol @ tha Diddy... Nice fast beat and fast flow - I like tha "side 2 side" line - That was nice - My Rating: 3.7

22. "Real Slow"
From going "real fast" to "real slow", lemme see what this song has goin' on >>> Nice lil' old beat from The Roots - This iz different in a good way - Nice hook - Kinda long ending, but pretty decent - I'm guessing this really long ending iz tha way of tha mixtape ending? - My Rating: 3.6

23. "Gone Happen (Album Version)"
Oh now you call it "Gone Happen", lol (unlike before wit "Ain't Knocking") - I liked tha beat to this, and this one did aight on my playlist - No more mixing? I'm guessin' tha mixtape iz ending... Yeah Natureboy, "I swore you was a plummer," lol - My Current Rating: 4.0

24. Stylez "My Way"
Last song, so I'm dyin' to hear it - High AL >>> Real nice lil' intro beat right there - Oh this ain't you I'm guessin' (I almost thought you were singin' tha hook for a second, lol) - Do you know Stylez or somethin'? Oh good there's some rappin' here and there on tha 2nd verse - I like that hook for singing - As for an R&B/Rap joint, I'm gonna give it a pretty decent rating since I like it - My Rating: 3.9

25. "Hip Hop Is Dead (Outro)"
Okay I been DYING to hear it!!! VERY HIGH AL!!! >>> Yes more rapping!! Feelin' that old school beat right there - I like all that consistant rapping! I think I missed something on tha outro... I had to re-hear it again to officially catch it (I thought you were gonna say Frankie, but you said "Lucky") - I really, REALLY, REALLY appreciate tha shout out fa'real - You will get my support all day, "ERRR-DAY" - Now for this rating, I'm gonna rate when you were rapping on this, so here it goes: My Rating (Rapping Part): 3.8

Overall: End Time: 12:33 AM - That was a really great mixtape, really good! I'm glad you kept a bunch of tha songs I originally love from tha past, and I liked tha new jointz I never heard - I still can't get over tha shout out!!!!! I'm goin' crazy in my mind, lol!! - I know/hope them bitch-asses that hate on me/under rate me at my college'll get all jealous over it 'cause they ain't me, and "I'm not them"! Anyway, here's my rankings for my ratings:

Review #23: P. Dukes "Easy Money Vol. 1 (Hosted By DJ Scream & DJ Burn One)"

Reviewed on 8.06.2007 (Review No. 23)

Aight time for my review on this mixtape right here - Totally not sure of what to expect - It's tha P. Dukes "Easy Money Vol. 1 (Hosted By DJ Scream & DJ Burn One)" mixtape - That's REALLY watz up that u got DJ Scream & DJ Burn One hosting (they're 2 of my favorite DJ's) - I don't know you, so this iz my first time hearing you - Anything I type before ">>>" iz my thoughts before hearing tha song, and anything after ">>>" iz my review while I'm listening to tha song - I'm gonna be as personal as I can wit my review, and for your mixtape, I have a really High AL (AL = Anticipation Level), so without further or do, here I go wit ur mixtape review: Start Time: 10:22 PM

01. "Easy Money Intro"
Let's see what you did to tha intro >>> I like that combo mix between Scream & Burn One - Aight I'm hearing you rap - Sounding good Most intros I don't rate 'cause they're just intros, but since you have a rap in your intro, I'mma give you a rating - My Rating: 3.9 (remember 4.0 or anything in tha 4's iz a real good rating)

02. "There He Is"
Aight first actual song by P. Dukes, so High AL >>> Nice lil' beat intro - Lol @ tha trucks on tha road - Feelin' that, as well as tha hook - Damn you're real consistant wit rapping on tha 1st verse - Yeah tha hook iz tha best part of tha song - Great song right there - My Rating: 4.0

03. "Painin Da Block"
I don't know what "painin da block" means, so I guess I'm gonna find out, and I like that this iz tha 3rd different producer already - I got some AL, so let's see >>> Aight this beat's a lil' better - Yeah I guess good subject - Pretty good track - My Rating: 3.8

04. "Stand Up"
Let's see what this one has cookin' up >>> Real good hook - Feelin' tha beat; Nice 1st verse - I like that line "whole club leanin' like a Colt 45" - Nice lil' song there - My Rating: 3.7

05. "Dap Us Up"
Aight cool a song about daps - Looking forward to this so High AL! >>> 2:07... it's short Hopefully it's real good - Nice beat - Sounding good so far - Real good hook towards tha end - Really feelin' it - Givin' this a real good rating, although it should've been A LOT longer! My Rating: 4.3

06. "Somebody Betta Tell 'Em"
This one might be good; lemme see >>> Another solid production - I got interupted from my 63 year old rappin' grandma 'cause she just called me, so I'm gonna re-hear this to remember it: This iz sounding REAL good - Great rhymin' & flowin' on it - Great song - I guess I should say this: Before my grandma interupted, when I was listening for tha first time, in tha beginning, as soon as you said "preciate it my dawg," I think I got a lil' excited just 'cause I really like tha word "dawg" used in slang terms - So due to that, and listening to tha song, I'm giving it a real good rating - My Rating: 4.6

07. "What It Is Countree Noise"
Cool tha same producer from tha last song, so High AL >>> Iz "Countree" and/or "Noise" tha featured artists, or a part of tha title 'cause it ain't in tha hook... This sounds laid back - Not bad - Nice lil' female down south type of song - I'm not too big about female type of songs, but I give you a for makin' this - My Rating: 3.4

08. "Speaks"
I'm guessing a skit? >>> Yup a lil' skit - a.k.a. "That Dude From Tha Southside Of ATL" lol - 'Preciate you speakin' - Major on that dawg - You sound like you're true wit ur rhymes, so I give you a to that - My Rating: N/A

09. "Emotionless Freestyle"
Aight High AL 'cause I wanna hear you freestyle off that "Emotionless" beat >>> Oh wow a long one (4:18) - I like tha whole "pinky ring too big I couldn't raise my hand" line - Great freestyle, especially towards tha end - My Rating: 3.9

Halftime: So far so good - It feels like it has been getting better and better - I think you sound a lil' like Allstar from Cashville, Tennassee (which I really like him) - Now let's see tha other ½ of this mixtape:

10. "I Love Da Southside"
And "I love da southside" too, lol - I can't wait, CAN'T WAIT to go to tha south one day - I think tha first time I'm goin' iz during tha Spring next year - Anyway, High AL due to "I love da southside" >>> Odd, but cool beat, and to that truck passing again - Feelin' that hook, and I'm really likin' tha subject - Nice lil' song - My Rating: 3.7

11. "Tha Mobb Free"
>>> I didn't see much catchiness in this - It was decent - My Rating: 3.3
EDIT: Was that supposed to be "Tha Mobb Freestyle"? If so, that's why I didn't expect anything from it - It should've been labeled tha right way

12. "Don't Like Me"
Who doesn't like you? >>> Nice beat - Yeah fuck those haterz - People hate on you 'cause you get money? That's dumb that they hate - People hate on me 'cause I'm different, I don't smoke or drink, and tha way I can't live like a normal 19 year old - Oh yeah I like that "sun don't like me 'cause I shine too hard" line - My Rating: 3.8

13. "See Me In Ya City"
I like tha title so I got AL for it >>> I had a feeling it was gonna be a sample, but I had my thinking towards a Spark Dawg sample or somethin' - Good sample tho - Great verse, and during tha hook I like when you chant "yeahhhh!!!" like Young Jeezy - Yeah a good song right there - My Rating: 3.9

14. "DJ Scream Speaks"
Okay let's see what my nigga Scream has to say >>> Okay so iz a "ridin'" type of song coming up? My Rating: N/A

15. "Supabad" Feat. Ray Monee
Aight we got ourselves a feature - Let's see what it'll sound like >>> Come to think of it, I'm starting to enjoy you more P. Dukes - Nice lil' hook right there - Ray Monee sounded pretty good on that - Nice lil' track - My Rating: 3.8

16. "Cigarettes & Alcohol" (Jae Paul Ghetty Feat. P. Dukes)
Even tho I don't do both cig's and alcohol, I'm not against them - I'm only against them if a person does either, and doesn't like me for stupid reasons (there's a few of them at my college, but instead of cig's, it's weed) - Anyway, High AL 'cause I like tha title >>> This might be a good slow jammer - Lol this iz real slow - That girl iz real slow on her rhymin'/singin' - Okay I'm glad to hear you on it
- Yeah pretty good, but it was so slow that 3:40 seemed like it flew by - You did your part good - Pretty good slow track - My Rating: 3.6

17. "Speaks Again"
Yes I'm really lookin' forward to you speaking again - High AL for tha speaking, lol >>> Yeah nice lil' shoutouts - My Rating: N/A

18. "Certified Ridah"
Hope tha last joint iz good - I hope it's not a slow jammer; let's see >>> 7:27... yeah definately hope it's somethin' - Tha intro kinda scares me... Yeah it kinda a slow jammer, but I'm glad to hear you rappin' again - Good 2 verses - What iz this? A change? Yung Texus (sp?) - Tha beat and everything iz changing, so I'm looking forward! Iz this another song, or a continuation? This iz going weird, in a VERY GOOD way - $park Dawg's on tha song - WOW! - Great part on him, and I'm glad to hear you again - I don't know tha rapper on tha last verse, but he did his part pretty good - Because they sounded like 2 different tracks mixed together, my rating kinda got messed up (I was gonna rate them separately) - I guess I'mma mix them together, and get a rating for tha 2 parts: My Mixed Rating: 4.0

Overall: End Time: 12:09 AM - That was a good mixtape for someone I never heard before - I give you props dawg - Keep doin' what you do!!

My Rankings (According To My Ratings):

15 "Tha Mobb Free" 3.3
14 "What It Is Countree Noise" 3.4
13 "Cigarettes & Alcohol" (Jae Paul Ghetty Feat. P. Dukes) 3.6

Review #22: Wes Fif & DJ Smallz "Dead Presidents"

Reviewed on 8.01.2007 (Review No. 22)

Alright tha moment I've been waiting for - tha Wes Fif mixtape wit DJ Smallz "Dead Presidents" - Now a change up on tha rating scores: a 4.0 (which was previously tha highest rating) will increase up to a 5.0 - 4.0 iz a very good rating, but if I wanna determine which song iz close to, or iz my favorite, I will increase tha song's rating (like instead of a 4.0 for every good song, I might have 4.3's, 4.7's, etc - I VERY RARELY give out 5.0 ratings) - And since I heard this mixtape has songs from tha other mixtape, any song that I have reviewed before won't have My Rating - Instead, it'll have My Current Rating, what I think of it currently (if tha song iz still real good, or has worn off on me) - And as always, anything typed before ">>>" iz before I listen to tha song; anything after iz my thoughts - Now, onto tha mixtape - Start Time: 11:20 PM:

01. "Fear Factor Intro" Feat. DJ Smallz
Alright lovin' tha intro title!! "Fear Factor" makes me give it a , so High AL (anticipation level) on tha intro >>> Ooh a phone call in tha beginning!
Nice beat after tha phone call How old iz that lil' kid talkin'? Nice lil' long intro My Rating: N/A

02. "Bread"
Alright High AL 'cause it's a NEW SONG - Let's see how Wes Fif iz makin' sum "bread" >>> Nice intro - Yes an acronym - Yes Wes Fif, once again, you're tha truth - Yeah cool beat in a weird/good way (mainly during tha hook) - A nice hustler anthem right here - Gotta get that $$$ - Another great first listen! My Rating: 4.2

EDIT: Whoops I reviewed this one before 2...

04."Hangin' Out Da Window" Feat. Lil' Meechie
Looks like a new feat. artist on this joint, and I really like tha title, so High AL on this >>> Tha beat from tha previous song got me excited for this - Nice hook on this - for Rewinding it back Smallz - Nice verse on that Wes Fif - Yeah yo niggaz watchin' u out tha window 'cause of how good of a rapper you are - You represent tha "O" to tha fullest - Okay Lil' Meechie sounded good on his verse - Pretty good; to it - My Rating: 4.0

05. "G-Code"
Okay first song I heard already - Matter a'fact, this iz tha 3rd mixtape I'm hearing this on now - Still really feelin' it; another great anthem! First listen was a 4.0, second listen was a 4.0 (without adjustments), and now with adjustments, I should give it something higher - My Current Rating: 4.4

06. "Cop Car"
Yet another song I never heard, and I like tha title, so High AL >>> Crunk beat? Sounds like "Totally Dude" by Shop Boyz beat - Oh whoops, it's "Party Like A Rockstar" beat - I like tha impostaz/pasta line - Also tha tuck ya ice in/you ain't iced out line - Yup nice hook, I would say better than Shop Boyz's - Also like tha "chopper city boyz like B.G." line - Yes Wes Fif - You shit on everyone else (most rappers pretty much) - But yeah, feelin' it a lot - Great version of Shop Boyz My Rating: 4.5

07. "SS Drop"
Time for "lucky 7" - It feels like every song I never heard I have a High AL for - That's 'cause of how good Wes Fif iz - But yeah, High AL on this; I'll find out what an "SS Drop" iz >>> Oh shit, lol - That "SS" iz a "Southern Smoke", my bad - My Rating: N/A

08. "That's Money" Feat. Mighty Mike
Mighty Mike appears again - First he was "snowed up" on tha "Snowed Up" joint wit Wes Fif - now this joint, and glad to hear them both on a track again - High AL >>> Aight nice hook, and good catchiness - Good flow/vocals on Mighty Mike - Lol @ that girl on tha hook - She sounds nice - My Rating: 3.9

09. "I'm Paid"
*Cracks a smile* Yes this song again, and again, and again!! 3rd mixtape I saw this on - Prolly my favorite mixtape track for 2007 - I NEVER get sick of it - First listen adjusted would've been really high - This'll always be a certified classic/favorite in my opinion, so I guess since it's always been my joint, it'll get tha full rating - My Current Rating: 5.0

So far pretty much all tha songs have been BANGERS!!! I didn't expect that many new jointz, so MAJOR MAJOR PROPS so far!!!

10. "Fuck What You Thank"
Let's see this one >>> Oh no "Buy U A Drank" beat... What'll come outta Wes Fif on this one? Okay good Wes Fif spittin' a verse - Lmao @ that singer on tha hook - Really liking tha whole "money" subjects - That's a good subject when it comes to songs IMO - And I'm still really liking all tha times he says "dawg" and "bruh" - Another great (lol @ that hook) version of another song Wes Fif - My Rating: 3.7

11. "I Do Not Fuck Off"
Oh I remember this one - I sampled it one day on his Myspace; it's his version of "The Way I Live" - Lemme re-hear, and give an official review >>> Yeah this iz good; good verses, and yeah, I'm Wes Fif's dawg IMO - I got a lot of respect for him - My Rating: 3.6

12. "I Go Hard" Feat. 3AM
On a first listen 3 weeks ago on 7.11.2007, I said I wasn't going to add it to my playlist, but I did a week later, so to it - Since L.B. said it was his single, that made me look out for it on Music Choice Rap (as well as "Haterz") - That's one reason why I'm keeping track of tha songs on Music Choice Rap this week - Anyway, let's see what I shall give it as a rating >>> Feelin' tha beat more - Nice lil' rewind there Smallz - Still tryin' to work on feelin' tha hook tho... Yeah that singer (or singers) 3AM sounds aight - I guess this iz 'cause it's tha first song I'm hearing 3AM on - My Rating: 3.5

13. "Freaky"
Let's see how "freaky" he gets on this for tha females >>> Wow slow start... I don't know about that hook... tha "I Go Hard" one I'd say iz better - I dunno about this one... This one sounds more like a future single (like a single after a club single) - Wes Fif's verses of course are good - That hook gets a for me - This won't have that high of a rating for me - Okay Wes Fif's 3rd verse I'm feelin' a lot better, so there's some life there - Maybe this'll grow on me in tha future? All it needs iz time - Even tho not my type of song, good female song by Wes Fif tho - My Rating: 2.6

14. "Haterz Everywhere" Feat. B.O.B.
*Cracks a smile* Yeah this song again - 2nd time hearing it on a mixtape, and I listened to it a few times earlier this weekend on tha "RNR - Direct Connect" mixtape wit Bigga Rankin - Nice lil' Rick Ross in tha intro - Still really feelin' that beat, as it really reminds me of a dance/trance beat - Shit, now I'm REALLY feelin' tha beat for some reason - it sounds GREAT on my surround stereo - Still MAJOR to my sources for ignoring this - why??? My friend online who iz a big fan of dance/trance music'll prolly really like tha beat to this - I'll have him listen and see if he likes it - And I think I'm going to be giving it a higher rating this time on this review - Tha review on tha "RNR - Direct Connect" I gave it a *goes and looks* 3.8 - Aight time to raise it a lil' - My Rating: 4.0

15. "My Dawgs"
It has been on my Top 10 Countdown 1 spot for about a week now (going on and off it) - Tha title iz DEFINATELY a personal favorite (especially tha subject) - I wind up doin' everything for "my dawgs" at college, but they don't pay nowhere near tha respect as I pay them - That's what sux about tha subject when it's in my hands, but in Wes Fif's hands, it's good - One thing I really dislike iz if some dude hugs some other dude, it's aight - Even tho I feel real odd to do it when called for, if I was to hug another dude, it would look real weird - Cool wit someone else, but weird wit me - That's one thing I REALLY don't understand... - Either way, great song - Became my 2 Urban joint on my playlist recently, so props to that (it fell right underneath tha tracks I would listen to from "RNR - Direct Connect" mixtape, so it was like Wes Fif had tha 1 and 2 Urban joints on my playlist recently) - Yeah Fear Factor Music - Lol @ that shortened ending (was that called for) - My Rating: 4.7

16. "Nothin' Like" Feat. Chubby Relle
Since I know what 17 iz, this iz tha last new joint, and another new feat. artist for me, so High AL >>> Slow start - I know I've heard this beat or somethin' before - Oh wait, I'm dumb; this iz on that "RNR - Direct Connect" mixtape, so this iz my 2nd time hearing it on a mixtape - This iz good, but I don't think it should've been on here - There were other great songs on that mixtape that could've made it, but it's all good - Let's see what I gave it on tha other mixtape: Oh shit I put it as my least favorite song on tha last mixtape? Shit that was dumb - I only gave it a 3.0 - Well then for this, I'mma make it a lil' higher - My Rating: 3.6

17. "See Me" Feat. J.A.
My 2nd HOTTEST Urban joint of Winter 2006/2007 - This iz tha 3rd time I'm seeing it on a mixtape, and it has always been a banger - Still not tired of it/still enjoy it, although "I'm Paid" iz better - I might nominate this song for "Hottest Beat of 2007" on my 2007 Awards - We'll see if it wins! - It also might be nominated for "Best Underground Rap Song" - My Rating: 4.9

Overall: End Time: 12:59 AM - GREAT mixtape, ESPECIALLY tha beginning! I'm glad they kept 's 5, 9, 14, and 17 on there This iz a good look for Wes Fif - I thought I was going to already know a bunch of tha songs, but out of 15 songs, I knew 7 out of 15, so at least that's 50+% of new jointz for me - As tha last mixtape had too many skits, this had too little - there was that one skit (7), and that's it - There should've been a few thrown in here

^ Again, just like wit tha last mixtape ("RNR - Direct Connect"), I have 9 ratings of at least 4.0, so that's watz good - come to think of it, I prolly should've flipped 7 wit 5 - just thinkin' about it, I thought I rated "Cop Car" too high, but it's all good - Wes Fif keep doin' yo thang!
