Review #299: Ville Boyz "2Determined (The Mixtape)"

Reviewed on 8.30.2009 (Review #299)

I can’t believe I’m almost at 300 reviewz completed!! Either tonight or tomorrow, it’ll be official!! Ya boy FrankieThaLuckyDog just grindin’, mane, non-stop!! Got tha final CD tha Camp Life representative sent me in tha mail for now: It’s Da Ville Boyz “2Determined”. I talked ta Barber Shop Black last month, although success was minimal. I could call him when I finish tha review, but I’m not sure if I’ll get tha chance to. Glad ta have more 2009 shit come at me, so here goes my review fa Da Ville Boyz “2Determined (The Mixtape)”! Start Time: 9:34 PM | End Time: 11:15 PM

Quick Note: I rate each song from 1.0 – 5.0. Each rating iz my own opinion!! I only please myself with 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) so 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.

01. “Go Get It Music (The Movement)”
Interestin’ ta see tha label name as tha title for tha startin’ track. I have a feelin’ I gon REALLY like dis CD, ya dig!! Sometimes I think of you guys wit tha Short Bus Boys (‘cause y’all both from BR, both jiggalate, and both have “boys” in your names, although you’re wit a “z”). Let’s see how we gon start this thang off?!? >>> Didn’t realize what was up wit tha intro, but it’s just a trademark thang. Now that tha song kicked in, it sounds NICE! Y’all sound good on tha hook right here! Tha 1st verse iz here, and it sounds like it on sum REAL COOL shit right here, ya dig! Nice job on tha 1st verse, and tha hook soundin’ like y’all doin’ tha damn thang in tha undaground game right chea! Really feelin’ how tha dude on tha 2nd verse sounds; great motivational shit right chea!! Really feelin’ this, so MAJOR PROPS on goin’ off here!! Nice 3rd verse on this too! What gon happen within tha next 1:24? Oh shit, a 4th verse! Glad that a short 4th verse was added; good shit here! My Rating: 4.3

02. “Cuttin’ Up”
A “t” iz missin’ in tha title. Anyway, anticipated for it, so let’s see dat hot shit!! >>> That’s a REAL catchy intro wit tha “rollin’ to tha max off a Q-Red beat” shit; this should be REAL nice!! Will it be betta than Big Head’s song of tha same title? Let’s see how it does! Tha hook iz DEFINITELY tight, and it sounds GREAT wit tha way it’s pretty repetitive in tha 2nd ½ of tha hook!! GREAT SHIT, and tha 1st verse AIN’T PLAYIN’!! “Fresh ‘bauds” ta start tha 1st verse off, so you KNOW dis shit iz official!! GREAT job on dat 1st verse, and Q-Red REALLY did a nice job on dis beat right here!! Keep dis shit comin’!!! Tha 2nd verse here, and it’s ALL about dem drugs, so you get PROPS fa applyin’ it to tha music right here!! LOL @ tha “eyes low/China” part; nice shit here! Feelin’ tha way tha dude on tha 3rd verse iz deliverin’ dis shit!! Iz this tha dude from tha 2nd verse of tha last song? Sounds like it! Glad he “off dem jiggaz;” he tha fuckin’ shit!!! REAL GREAT song here; MAJOR SHIT fa tha clubs!!! Although I don’t think it beat tha Big Head rating, this iz more of a song I would play more between tha 2! My Rating: 4.7

03. “’Bout Me”
Still keepin’ it as just y’all on tha track; I feel y’all on dat one! Looks like ANOTHA GR8 song, so make dis 3x a charm right chea, ya heard me!! >>> …Or not, as far as anticipation/expectation. Although y’all chose a non-original beat wit dis “Louie Bag” beat from Bloodraw/Young Jeezy, it should be “RAW” ‘cause it’s y’all! Pretty good beginning here, doin’ tha damn thang on dis beat! Nice job on tha 1st verse, and tha hook iz good. Glad anotha one of y’all jumped on tha hook! Here’s tha 2nd verse, and it soundin’ great wit tha way it comin’ through wit tha voice & flow!! I thought tha CD was kinda scratched when I got it (who has scratched CDs these dayz?), but nothin’s skippin’, so that’s a plus! Tha 3rd verse iz here, and it’s still some shit you can’t hate on! Who doesn’t like dis shit? It’s SO EASY ta handle, and you KNOW it can make ANYONE satisfied!!! Great shit over this beat! My Rating: 4.2

04. “How To Act” Feat. Short Stop
Almost thought Short Bus Boys was this person for a sec on tha feature, but I luv my BR confusion, lol! Who can’t like dat title? I KNOW this one gon go retawded!!! >>> I know dis one iz “Pants Hang Low” by Plies (on tha beat). Lookin’ forward ta hearin’ tha featured artist too; let’s see how y’all do! Great hook! Y’all know how ta take a non-Louisiana beat and make tha hook a BR hook wit tha 2nd ½ of it bein’ repetitive wit tha title!! Great shit, and tha 1st verse soundin’ NICE wit tha combo of 2 members here!! Glad y’all feel loaded on dis shit right here! Here’s my boy on tha 1st ½ of tha 2nd verse; “tha pill boy!!” You KNOW I got fuckin’ luv fa my pill boyz, ya dig!!! Here’s that dude dat has dat young/Lil’ J type of voice (almost) on tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse, doin’ a good job; nice shit! Great job on dis one! My Rating: 4.2

05. Skit
Oh, shit, a skit! >>> Yea, “I know you smokin’ on a fiya blunt;” how FUCKIN’ GR8 of a way ta start tha skit!!! I have tha numba, but will Barber Shop Black be keepin’ in touch wit me? I feel that I always have ta make tha calls 1st. I think he ‘pose ta call me back, which it still hasn’t happened yet; it was a month ago. Either way, nice skit! My Rating: N/A

06. “My Shawty”
When I saw tha length (3:54), I thought it was gonna be a jacked beat. However, if it’s 2x Plies here wit his beat wit tha near-same name, I won’t be buyin’ it! Let’s see what we got goin’ on here… >>> Well, nothin’ familiar, but it doesn’t sound like it much fa me in tha beginning wit tha beat. Hearin’ tha 1st verse, and it sounds like it female-catering, so that ain’t a minus. Okay 1st verse, but tha hook kinda boring/gay wit tha Auto-Tune sounding. Not tha worst Auto-Tune, but this ain’t sexual or nothin’. Neva mind, it got fuckin’ worse on tha 2nd verse! Why does every fuckin’ person have ta touch tha Auto-Tune?!?!? Luckily, it stopped afta tha 1st 4 lines in tha 2nd verse! A lil’ betta wit tha rappin’ here, and I like that it’s faster. A lil’ too excited in tha hook, especially when it repeats wit that Auto-Tune. It’s like, in a lil’ kid’s voice, “LOOK WHAT I GOT?!? LOOK, LOOK, LOOK WHAT I GOT?!?” Soundin’ like it keepin’ it consistent wit tha topic on tha 3rd verse; aight 3rd verse right here. LOL @ tha catchin’ my attention wit tha “bruh” part twice in tha 3rd verse. My Rating: 3.1

07. “Bitch It’s Gangsta”
Lookin’ good on tha title, but let’s see tha beat! >>> Yea, it original!! Wodie on tha beat this time; glad y’all switched it back ta REAL excitement!! REALLY feelin’ tha Baton Rouge undaground shit in tha voice/flow/lyrics/hook right here to tha fullest!!!!! Y’all say “this as gangsta as it get.” Well, I say, “this as Baton Rouge as it gets!” “Girbauds fulla steel,” so you KNOW you mixin’ cool wit gangsta shit!! REALLY feelin’ tha voices here; they’re REAL gutta this time!! Gotta luv tha “lil’ daddy” shit in tha hook! STILL keepin’ dis gangsta shit goin’ in tha 2nd verse wit CRAZY-ASS SHIT bein’ spit here!!! REAL NICE right there, and this whole entire joint iz TOOOOOOOO NUTS!!!!! Like tha endin’ wit tha talkin’ at tha end wit all those “gangsta” parts! My Rating: 4.6

08. “Let’s Get It On”
I see there’s an apostrophe in “it’s” (which iz correct) in tha last title. However, there’s none in “let’s;” error! Anyway, what will come outta this joint? Hope a surprise like tha original Wodie beat from tha last song!! >>> YEA, now it’s Mod Productions, lol! Keep these original productions comin’! As far as tha intro, pretty decent, but tha sound effects are TIGHT! Comin’ through lyrical on tha 1st verse, but not borin’ here! Pretty good job on dat 1st verse, and tha hook iz NICE! Ova 100% motivational right here! Like tha “hustle, grind, stack, shine” shit in tha background of tha hook! Here we go wit tha 2nd verse here, on tha hustlin’ tip! Nice job, although it felt a lil’ short. This song was only 2 verses and 2:50. Kinda short, but it serves its purpose. Neva mind about tha 2 verses ‘cause my boy on tha 3rd verse here! Within only unda 30 seconds left, a 3rd verse was here! Glad it was here, and it ended wit tha verse! I like that “bye” ending of tha verse; gr8 way ta end tha verse/song! My Rating: 4.0

09. “She All Dat” Feat. Lil’ Phat
Was slowly lookin’ at tha feature, and was almost afraid of tha L in tha beginning of tha name (we’ll go there later when tha time comes [if it comes up on this CD ‘cause I know you prolly cool wit tha dude {I don’t need ta say tha name}]). Was havin’ barely any anticipation wit tha title, although Phat on it. Not sure how much quality he gon have on tha song, but let’s see tha overall result. Mouse or Q-Red I expect on tha beat! >>> LOL, wrong! It’s Wodie on tha beat, but givin’ it dat Mouse feel! Likin’ all tha attributes/qualities of tha females in tha hook. Glad it’s tha hook ‘cause it’s GREAT! I like Phat’s repetitiveness in tha 2nd ½ of tha hook; SOOOOO Baton Rouge right now!!! Tha 1st verse here, doin’ some nice shit here ta keep every man/dude satisfied! Great vibe in that verse right there; really inta dis shit right nah! My boy outta Da Ville Boyz on tha 2nd verse here, doin’ his thang wit tha descriptions of tha gurlz, or as tha NEW Lolene Dance-Pop song on Music Choice Dance right now says, “sexy people!” Lil’ Phat here on tha 2nd ½ of tha verse, and lol @ “I like it when they drank;” lol, Phat, L-O-L! A 3rd verse fit here, and it’s still keepin’ it consistent here! Gotta have tha drankin’ & smokin’ ta qualify right here in this song. Even “her name in your jewelry,” huh? That’s cool, I guess. Sounded like a fast ending to tha verse, but it cool ‘cause it ended wit tha beat! My Rating: 4.4

½time: Soundin’ like a pretty good CD so far! Of course, nothin’ terrible comes outta BR most of tha time, ya dig!! ESPECIALLY if you inta jiggalatin’, then it’s a MAJOR plus!! I thought this would be more pill poppin’, but it sounds like it more street so far, which I can take. Wit an average CD rating currently at 4.2, this a DEFINITE plus for tha streets of BR and anybody readin’ ‘cause I know buku people READ, and are influenced by, MY REVIEWZ!!

10. “My Life” Feat. Lil’ Boxx
OMG, IT’S LIL’ BOXX!!! LOL, I got so excited, that I put “My Boxx” originally as tha title, ROFL! Once again, ‘cause of tha L in tha 1st letter of his name, I got more afraid this time, but it looks like it gon go hard!!! >>> Shit, “Oomp Camp Productions?” I paused it before tha beat kicked in. Lemme guess tha beat… By tha length, I would say… that stupid “Show Out” from Unk or “Fast (Like A Nascar)” from Kafani/Unk. Let’s see… Neither. I don’t know tha beat, so this’ll sound good hearin’ it here for tha 1st time! Can’t think of what it samples, but it sounds like “dinn dinn dinn dinn, dinn dinn, dinn dinn, dinn-dinn-dinn, dinn—dinn-dinn, dinn-dinn-dinn, dinn, din-a-lin-a-lin” (samplin’ like a horror thing or somethin’?). Soundin’ pretty good on tha 1st verse, and it sounds like struggle iz tryna be fought here. Why do so many people go through struggle, yet, have kids? Don’t kids cost much more money? Plus, there’s buku deaths goin’ on, so that’s thousands of dollaz down tha drain too. Really, money spent has ta be thought betta! Great lyrics, great 1st verse, and tha hook iz catchy wit dat beat sample! Lil’ Boxx comin’ through here on tha 2nd verse, soundin’ A+ (as always)!! He must’ve always got A’s at school ‘cause he ALWAYS great on tha tracks/features!! I like his “it’s back ta Square 1: Grind, hustle, stack, stack.” GREAT flow/lyrics in his verse, and he REALLY sounds like he gon get dem $$$’s all tha time!! Here comes tha 3rd verse, and already startin’ off wit depression. Why should “your city” have ta suffer? How come a lotta people have kids at a young age? Great description in tha 3rd verse. Great song right here, once again! My Rating: 4.2

11. “Straight Stupid” Feat. Beezy Bird
Wit a title like dis, I thought that “L” artist was gonna come out on dis one, but GLAD it’s just y’all!! Wit a NICE 4:45 on tha length, who can’t anticipate dis?!? >>> I thought I knew tha beat in tha beginning, but it’s a typical Baton Rouge start. It has a nice Savage feel to it, but proper credit iz NOT given here in tha sample! My boy Beezy Bird iz bein’ sampled here wit tha “bow, bow” in tha background (just like wit “I’m A Grinder” from Kevin Gates), so he MUST be in tha ID now! To add: Tha hook just TOO GREAT; LUV IT!!! Did DJ B-Real sample Beezy inta this (like he did wit Gates) too, or was it someone else? Either way, tha beat TOO GREAT!! Oh yes, I just guessed right!! You said “wit B-Real up on tha track,” so he produced dis! He must luv tha Beezy Bird sample (and Beezy too)! REAL GREAT 1st verse from my boy outta Da Ville Boyz wit tha “buku money” and all tha shit he rapped about ta make it “a club banga” and shit!! FUCKIN’ LUVIN’ IT!!! It HAS ta be tha BEST song on here!!! Here comes dat 2nd verse here, and SO MUCH jiggin’ goin’ on here in dis song!! That’s why I FUCKIN’ LUV IT!!!!! Even “jiggin’ past midnight,” so you KNOW it CAN’T get anymo retawded right now!!! Tha 3rd verse iz here, and lol @ tha “handicap” part, but REALLY likin’ tha “rollin’ like a wheel chair” part. This iz DEFINITELY on dat shit I fuckin’ luv to tha fullest!!! Yea, more jiggalatin’ from my boy from tha 1st verse on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse here!!! Yea, so FUCKIN’ GREAT!!!!!! Make sure you put Beezy Bird in tha feature next time ‘cause he WANTS/DESERVES dat credit!! Y’all from Baton Rouge, but a person, born n raised on Long Island, New York (me), knows tha answer to tha sample! Ain’t dat intelligent or what (thanx to my boy Beezy)? My Rating: 4.9

12. “Take It There”
Before I check tha ID, just wanna say that wheneva it’s over 4:30, I AUTOMATICALLY have tha anticipation LOCKED IN for tha song!!! *Checks ID* Anotha song wit just y’all; TEAR IT UP and “TAKE IT THERE!!!” >>> Was gonna guess dat one of tha boyz produced dis song, and it turned out ta be Mod Productions! This one soundin’ REAL GOOD fa this BR shit!! Tha hook sounded cool; always stayin’ fresh!! Tha 1st verse here, and yea, “drama, you don’t want it!” True shit right here; keep it comin’!! Great hood shit goin’ on in tha 1st verse; you KNOW it’s official! Here’s tha 2nd verse, and it soundin’ like y’all lurin’ out a warnin’ to tha hataz hatin’! Nice job on that verse; let’s see tha 3rd verse… My fuckin’ boy right here!! Yea, gotta luv tha “tha way I get retawded” shit and tha “dumb shit” shit; NOTHIN’s betta than dat dumb shit!! REAL NICE, and he lent it to anotha Ville Boy on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse. Nice job right there, keepin’ this shit at top quality! I thought it stopped at 1:01 remainin’, but tha beat just had a small interlude. Glad tha hook repeated, and this shit kept its consistency! My Rating: 4.3

13. “Ride”
This one’s 5:43!!! *Checks ID* STILL on y’all own!! Wit a long length, iz this gon be slow? I don’t know how I should anticipate dis one… >>> Neva mind, just as I figured, although way too long to be? Ugh… Ace Hood & Trey Songz “Ride” beat, no less wit tha same hook sample… DatPiff would’ve excluded it from their .zip file, lol! They be doin’ dat if you got a sample from anotha song/jacked beat in a song! Here’s tha 1st verse, and tha rappin’ soundin’ good. Nice pace at it, and tha lyrics were aight. Let’s see what we got goin’ on in tha 2nd verse? A lil’ betta, but still aight wit tha lyrics. How ‘bout tha 3rd verse? It’s my boy, and he “365, on his grind.” Nice job right there, although somewhat decent. Either way, I guess it’s tha best verse right there. Oh wait, a 4th verse… I guess this song’s from 2008 since he said, “it’s our year: 2008.” Aight verse, and somewhat aight song. You know jacked beats lower my anticipation/rating scale. My Rating: 3.6

14. “$ Grow Like Trees” Feat. Bad Nooze
Yes, ANOTHA song 4:30+ (4:38)!!! And tha title DEFINITELY on its shit wit tha dollar sign!! A newbie on tha feature, so this should be good… IF IT AN ORIGINAL BEAT!!! >>> I think Mystro on tha beat this time (newbie). Not sure how ta spell his name, but that dude on tha hook (tha featured dude) soundin’ NICE!! Great job on tha hook, as it’s MEGA catchy, and that VERY SHORT 4 lined verse sounded good! Here’s tha 2nd verse here, and it’s all about dat S wit a line through it, lol!! I like his “check my pockets, dawg. All tha walls green!” “Tha trees got buku leaves;” great shit!! Great job on that verse, fa real!! Tha 3rd verse here, and it still soundin’ great!! Always glad ta have a set of people in tha group ta always give dat mix! I like tha “blunt” part towards tha end of tha verse! I think there’s a 2nd ½ to tha 3rd verse here wit tha featured person… Oh wait, it was real short, that it went to tha 4th verse! I like dat “so when I say I count’ money, mean I’m reppin’ my leaves” part. My boy on tha 2nd ½ of tha 4th verse here, doin’ a nice job wit tha way he deliverin’ dis shit!! Fuckin’ luv how this dude be hustlin’, rappin’, and all dat good shit!! Tha last hook sounds almost off-beat, but this iz DEFINITELY a nice joint right here! My Rating: 4.5

15. “I Go Hard”
Might be a jacked beat? No anticipation, but let’s see… >>> It’s a new production (Hit Boy Music Production)! Sounded a lil’ decent at first, but it MUST be great!! I like tha screwed “I go hard” part in tha hook, as well as how tha track iz soundin’!! Tha 1st verse here, and it’s nuttin’ but tha $$$ again! Why did tha producer name/tag repeat at :51? I don’t know why people get erections over dat shit and have ta put it in their beat x amount of times? Tha 2nd verse iz soundin’ good wit tha rhymes. Yea, “ride through tha city, blowin’ sticky;” great job enjoyin’ tha track! Nice job on dat verse, and my boy here on tha 3rd verse!! “His grind be ridiculous,” so y’all hataz WATCH OUT!!! GREAT JOB deliverin’ dat verse; you da shit!! My Rating: 4.4

16. “Da Death Of Me”
I expect dis ta be REAL, REAL GOOD!!! It’s a REAL catchy title, and wit 4:22 on tha length, it should express SO MUCH GR8 shit!!! >>> Was wonderin’ who was gonna do tha beat this time (I KNEW it was gon be original)! This time, it’s Wodie again! How will this track flow? Well, off to a GREAT start wit tha “poppin’ pillz” and shit, includin’ tha “shiiiit, that gon be da death of me” part in tha hook! Luv when black people/rappers say “shit” as “shiiiiiiid” or “shiiiiiiiit;” anotha reason why I fuckin’ luv what I luv doin’ best: supportin’!! Tha 1st verse doin’ a NICE job wit this shit, includin’ tha feelin’ loaded part. Nice job wit tha rhymes, and tha way tha verse was delivered! Tha 2nd verse here, and it sounds like an alcohol habit wit tha “drinkin’ to tha head” shit. Why does depression lead ta drinkin’? I usually only get depressed when loyalty and socializin’ lacks fa me. Nice job on tha 2nd verse, keepin’ this track on a steady flow. Will my boy be on tha 3rd verse? I don’t think it iz, but he “fuckin’ wit dat Zanex,” so he jiggalatin’ already! “Shiiiiiit,” here he iz on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse!! Fuckin’ luv him, and how he said “dawg” too on dat part! He REALLY gutta wit dis Rap shit, keepin’ it consistent on EVERYTIME he gets on a track!! My Rating: 4.3

17. “Check Me Out”
Barber Shop Black told me Nu$$ie was on one of y’all CDs; I guess this ain’t tha CD? It all good, but if there’s otha music of y’all that iz surfacin’ tha streets, I NEED a hard copy ‘cause I collect Louisiana CDs! Also, I guess you’ll have ta wait ‘til anotha review of yours ta see tha “L” artist I’m talkin’ about (who’s name starts wit an L). Dis tha last actual song on tha CD, so let’s see how we do… >>> LOL @ tha fade-in intro; sounds nearly familiar in tha beginning? *Checks* Oh, shit! Didn’t think I eva knew y’all, but dis was featured on Way3000’s “Got Pills 2 (Still Rollin’)”. Let’s see what I originally said about it: Okay 1st ½ of tha 1st verse. Same thing goes for tha 2nd ½ of tha 1st verse. I guess that hook iz good for his mixtape’s title ‘cause of tha “I rock, I roll” part in tha hook (where that mixtape’s got tha “still rollin’” in tha name as well). Not bad on tha 1st ½ of tha 2nd verse. On tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse, it sounds like Lil’ Boosie. Not bad start to tha mixtape but I know it’ll easily get better. <- To add: I don’t know where my 3.8 rating came from, but when dis shit on sum jiggalatin’ shit, it’s an AUTOMATIC 4.0 at least fa me!! Tha quality sounds a lil’ low on this version, but yea, pretty good verses, and tha hook iz REAL ADDICTIN’!!! My Current Rating: 4.3

18. Outro
Dis it… I see dat my boy Mistah Trill (y’all [or he] has his name down as “Mr. Trill”, lol) did tha artwork here; props! I gotta show him tha review and call him up about it, since that’s how he discovered me before I discovered him, ya dig! Let’s see what gon go down on tha outro? >>> So, dis was tha 2nd mixtape dat dropped? Send me tha 1st one! I sent Barber Shop Black my address; hope he sends me sum shit I don’t got! My Rating: N/A

Overall: Time fa me ta go back ta college, lol! I start tha 7th semester tomorrow at 1 PM, lol. Anyway, GREAT CD, and it sounds like y’all REALLY doin’ ya thang! Keep up tha great work, keep fuckin’ wit me, and to my boy out Da Ville Boyz (who’s voice I like and shit), I see you, big dawg!

Review #298: Puppy & T-Dub a.k.a. Venom "Don't Ask, Just Listen"

Reviewed on 8.30.2009 (Review #298)

Ya boy FrankieThaLuckyDog at it again; anotha review! This one goin’ out ta my boy Puppy & his gurl T-Dub ‘cause they both put out this anticipatin’ mixtape right here called “Don’t Ask, Just Listen”! ‘Preciate tha Camp Life representative sendin’ it 2 me in tha mail ‘cause you KNOW those hard copies of CDs are REAL gr8 ta have, ya dig! Showin’ DCF sum luv right now wit dis review! Here goes my review fa Puppy & T-Dub a.k.a. Venom “Don’t Ask, Just Listen”! Start Time: 5:29 PM | End Time: 7:39 PM

Quick Note: I rate each song from 1.0 – 5.0. Each rating iz my own opinion!! I only please myself with 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) so 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.

01. “Woa Jac” Feat. DJ B-Real
Looks like a catchy title/song for tha 1st song on here. Let’s see how dis thang gon go! >>> Sounds like one of those familiar Mouse beats here by B-Real this time. T-Dub doin’ her thang on tha hook; she soundin’ raw on tha hook! “Let me fuck it like a hard dick;” she comin’ through STRONG on dis 1st verse right here! Tha raw, gangsta shit she be spittin’ made tha 1st verse REAL, REAL NICE!! My boy Puppy here on tha 2nd verse, and it’s soundin’ great, just like where your gurl left off! Nice job, but your gurl did betta on this song, lol! Glad you put a star next to it on tha tracklisting, which means you pushin’ it! My Rating: 4.6

02. “They Lied” Feat. Nu$$ie
Looks like dis title/wit Nu$$ie on it can be 100% true!! Could be tha perfect time ta hear it as well, so here goes my listenin’!! >>> Anotha B-Real beat here, startin’ off pretty slow, but will prolly get gutta… Still tha same beat pace, but yea, tha way tha beat sounds makes it sound for tha streets, so that’s a plus! T-Dub & Nu$$ie sound like they’re havin’ a conversation on tha hook here. It’s more her right now on tha 1st verse, and she still soundin’ gutta; props, props! Now that I heard tha 1st verse & hook again, here’s tha 2nd verse from Nu$$, and VERY sexual on tha content this time! Sounds like tha realness iz bein’ applied ta havin’ sex in this scene; good job, Nu$$! Dat boy Puppy on tha 3rd verse; yea, feelin’ how you came through outta nowhere on tha verse!! Soundin’ a lil’ like Young Ready, so you KNOW I’m REALLY inta this verse right now!! Real fuckin’ glad I’m fuckin’ wit you now, so you KNOW we gon do big thangz!! Wait ‘til this review iz ova; tha commercial gon come! Just realized a lil’ bit into tha song that this iz a somewhat remake of tha “Hail Mary” 2Pac beat, so props ta B-Real fa doin’ his Baton Rouge version on tha beat! My Rating: 4.5

03. “Satisfied” Feat. Kewanna MeCole
You’re really pushin’ this song right here (as you told me). You told me it was very sexual, so I HOPE it iz, especially if anotha gurl iz on tha feature! How will I feel about it? >>> DEFINITELY NOT borin’ in tha beginning so far, so I think we got a hit here! REAL NICE job on tha singin’ on tha hook! Yea, tha 1st verse here, and it’s REAL sexual; dis tha shit I wanna hear when it comes to servin’ tha females/tha females servin’ tha males! Tha 2nd verse iz tha featured female, and she’s doin’ a nice job singin’ here; nice transition from tha T-Dub parts! LOL @ her “I tell him ‘harder,’ it’s harder” part, lol! REALLY lookin’ forward ta seein’ how you come on dis shit, Puppy!! Yea, you came through NICE on tha 3rd verse wit wantin’ ta nut and shit, so you KNOW dis song will attract MANY, MANY, MANY people!! Even added some female attributes on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse here, doin’ tha damn thang. GREAT type of female joint right here!! My Rating: 4.4

04. “Big Dog” Feat. DCF
Tha DCFam (lol) in here, ‘bout ta get WILD!!! >>> LOL, random start wit tha “Independent” beat. I thought it was an original Mouse beat ‘til I heard how fast tha sample played, and knew it was Webbie’s song. Good hook, and tha 1st verse here, doin’ good on dis beat! Nice job, and T-Dub on tha 2nd ½ of tha 1st verse, REALLY KILLIN’ IT!!! I LUV her “I’m like girbaud straps” part; CRAZY!!! My boy Puppy here on tha 1st ½ of tha 2nd verse, doin’ dat gangsta/hood shit right here!! Soundin’ good on tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse too; str8 DCF here!! Tha hook iz tha TRUTH wit dat “big dawg status” shit. LOL, here dat boy Lil’ J on tha 1st ½ of tha 3rd verse here, always doin’ his thang wit dat GREAT voice, lol! Nu$$ comin’ through here on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse… Mixture of sex & weed, so that’s good fa Nu$$! LOL @ how he ended his verse wit just sayin’ “nigga” (instead of soundin’ like it was rapped in tha verse), and not sayin’ “Nu$$ie!!!”. Kinda could’ve cut tha beat somewhere, but it tha whole beat, so it whateva. My Rating: 4.4

05. “Wonder Why”
This could be a yes or a no title for me. But wit tha way dis CD goin’, I can’t deny a preview!! >>> Did dat say “Mr. Puppy ____ on tha track?” If you’re producin’ dis, then that’s watz good! Wow, tha beat GOIN’ NUTS!!! You KNOW I don’t deny dat DCF shit!!! Tha beat goin’ REAL CRAZY in tha hook here, as well as T-Dub singin’ her ass off!!! She no less came here on tha 1st verse, doin’ tha damn thang wit tha way she deliverin’ dis shit; TOO NUTS!!!!! REAL NICE job on tha 1st verse, and while Puppy playin’ tha beat, she doin’ her thang on tha 2nd verse ALSO!! Kept it consistent, while it’s not just good, it’s REAL GREAT!!! VERY Puppyless here (lol) as she on tha 3rd verse too!! She dedicatin’ it to us fellas, lol! That verse was ALSO nice ta hear!! REAL NICE job from just T-Dub holdin’ thangz down!!! My Rating: 4.5

06. “Do What It Do” Feat. Nu$$ie
It has a star by it, so that means you’re pushin’ this one too… By tha way tha title looks, it could be familiar, but I doubt it. *Checks* Yea, came up in my iTunes library wit tha “Featuring Nu$$ie” CD when I typed in “T-Dub”. Ewe @ my original 3.7 rating, but when I read what I originally wrote, I felt that it should’ve been way higher! Here’s what went down: … Oh wait, already, he’s in tha intro; nice intro wit tha beat! Didn’t expect that singin’ but it sounds pretty good on tha hook (as it’s a female no less) [T-Dub]. Ooh, she’s got tha 1st verse as she’s rappin’ no less! Nice lil’ verse as it was pretty grimy. Now, it’s tha 2nd verse… Soundin’ like a Young Ready flow, only faster. Feelin’ that 2nd verse there [from Puppy]. Good, Nu$$ie’s on tha 3rd verse! Definitely cool shit right here wit all that rappin’! And of course, tha endin’ had to have somethin’: “shitted in a cup” <- When he said that in “Show My Ass Off,” it just was INSANE!!! <- To add: Yea, my boy Puppy goin’ off on dat 2nd verse! T-Dub blended in REAL nice on this shit too! Even Nu$$ie bein’ on this was NICE too! I feel MUCH betta about it now!! My Current Rating: 4.3

07. “Make It Happen”
Anotha pushin’ possible single! Just y’all on it (or 1 of y’all), so I’m DEFINITELY gonna feel like I feel wit dat “Wonder Why” song and its preview! >>> Shit, who’s tha producer on this again? I either couldn’t tell, or I just can’t figure them out. I know them from previous productions. Anyway, hearin’ you on tha hook, Puppy, and it’s SO FUCKIN’ TIGHT!!! STR8 DUMB SHIT RIGHT HERE!!! LUV tha 2nd ½ of tha hook wit tha repetitiveness of tha hook!!! Tha 1st verse iz here, and it’s REAL CRAZY wit tha flow and tha lyrics!! You REALLY can “make it happen!!” Fell unda LUCKY #7 here!!! Really pushin’ as a future single or somethin’?!? That’s REALLY, REALLY watz good!!! I like how you said “dawg” 2x I think in tha 1st verse too; SO FUCKIN’ IN LUV wit dis shit, as well as bein’ able ta communicate wit you and all dat good shit!!! Yea, T-Dub on tha 2nd verse, so it husband & wife here!! STR8 UP THA DUMB WAY WIT DIS GANGSTA SHIT!!!!! Really felt her lyrics, ESPECIALLY filterin’ out tha fake-asses!! My big dawg Pup on tha 3rd verse too!!! I can’t wait ta call you afta this… or will I (‘cause my internet fucked up right now, so you won’t be able ta see tha review ‘til it goes back on)? REAL GREAT verse from you, and lol @ tha real cold ending; didn’t realize it ended. My Rating: 4.9

08. “Ass Real Fat” Feat. Lil’ J
LOL @ tha title! This should be a REALLLLLLLLLLLL GOOD one wit Lil’ J on it!!! >>> I can prolly name tha producer by tha way tha beat sounds, but for some reason, I can’t think of it? …Not sure, but you actually said who it was (“Hits” on tha track? Iz that tha dude from tha last song?). Tha hook sounds pretty good, although kinda regular, and not much extremely excitin’ goin’ on, lol (even wit tha beat changin’ or whateva). Either way, good shit, and you did ya thang on tha 1st verse, Pup. You REALLY want dat ass!! Here we go wit Lil’ J on tha 2nd verse! I think I gon like him much betta on this one. Soundin’ GREAT wit tha way he rappin’ and what he actually spittin’ on dis; good shit! Will T-Dub add sum of her ass on dis? Nope, but Pup, you stole tha 3rd verse this time, lol! Great shit wit dis shit, especially tha “rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on dem pillz” part, as well as tha “elephant” part too! My Rating: 3.9

09. “I’m So Fly” (J-Bo Feat. Puppy & B-Don)
I saw tha length (4:13), and had an odd feelin’ about this song bein’ right here, and it iz!!! I smiled! So dis CD must be pretty new then, huh? That’s REALLY watz good!! Looks like all y’all gon get sum debutance in my commercial I gon make fa this CD, ya dig!! Shout out ta my dawg B-Don too; a real dude I fuck wit to tha max!! Today actually marks 5 months I’ve had this song, and it’s now at its peak on my playlist! Started off slow in March/April, fell off around May, but picked up since July (thanx ta B-Don puttin’ me in his top friends and bein’ cool wit me), peakin’ at #4 on my playlist so far! I’m tryna push it ta #1, so HOPEFULLY that happens! Now, it’ll finally get a rating & review from FrankieThaLuckyDog!! >>> Glad it’s bein’ pushed REAL HARD now, ya dig!! I feel like it’s a slice of Pop now wit me ‘cause of tha way I be playin’ it like crazy!!! Too bad Pop and otha stations won’t even pay attention ta this! Either way, props ta Locco of Lil’ Boosie’s Bad Azz Entertainment label fa producin’ dis! J-Bo does his thang wit tha singin’ vs. rappin’; that’s REALLY watz good when it comes to dis Baton Rouge shit!! Gotta luv his flow on tha hook and tha verse wit tha switchin’ from rappin’ ta singin’! People on Word Of South said this beat was too slow for tha clubs. Well, it a lil’ slow, but it ain’t blocked from tha clubs! At first, I liked tha verses in tha order as: J-Bo > Puppy > B-Don. Now, it flipped (lol), and iz now B-Don > Puppy > J-Bo. No offense to anybody ‘cause tha song iz just FIRE!!! Anything I put on repeat iz tha shit!!! Puppy, you doin’ a REAL NICE job on tha 2nd verse wit tha way you sound on this shit! Gotta luv how you said, “I’m fresh, bruh;” that’s watz good! It’s considered an anthem in buku areas: clubs, hoods, streets, iPods, internets, lol, any otha places? When I first heard B-Don’s part, I thought he was gonna sound like a Lil’ Jish voice almost. But, he sounds deep and dark, so that’s REALLY watz good wit dis shit! Gotta luv his multiple pill parts wit tha “throw ‘em back, 2 by 2,” tha “I throw back like Fooboo [sp?],” and tha “you see dis jigga [?] will relieve yo headache, boo” parts!! I also liked dat he said his name 3x within tha last 4 lines. I didn’t even notice dat for a while, but I heard “B-Don so cool, dat’s why it just an undastandin’ dat B-Don iz so fly, dat’s why B-Don iz neva landin’,” so you KNOW you can’t fa’get tha name!! When I first heard it, my rating would’ve prolly been high 3.0’s ta low 4.0’s, but now, August 30, 2009, tha rating REAL NICE, ESPECIALLY since B-Don fuckin’ wit me more, Puppy fuckin’ wit me, and tha song REALLY explodin’ wit me!!! My Current Rating: 4.9

½time: Already at tha ½, and this CD iz FIRE!!! DEFINITELY a GR8 CD right here, and I couldn’t have thanked tha Camp Life representative anymore fa sendin’ it 2 me!!! I couldn’t have thanked you, Puppy, anymore fa sendin’ me tha tracklisting too; that’s REALLY watz good!! Let’s keep dis shit on and poppin’!!! Average CD rating iz currently at a WHOPPIN’ 4.5; HOLY SHIT!!!

10. “So Chill” Feat. EQ
Dis looks like it gon be a cool song, includin’ tha featured artist too. Let’s see how y’all gon do on dis one! >>> Feelin’ dat beat intro, fa sho! Yea, tha hook startin’ off wit dat gurl T-Dub! Nice combo wit EQ on tha hook too. Ooh, T-Dub said “bruh,” and she said “put dat purp up in tha air” too!! Great shit right here, and tha 2nd verse here, EQ style! Nice “hepitytus” (sp?) shit! Doin’ tha damn thang wit tha rappin’, and I like dat he said “bruh” too; keepin’ dis shit hot! Tha 3rd verse here, and it’s VERY DCF’d out, lol! You doin’ tha damn thang, Puppy. You DEFINITELY 100+% real on dis shit right here, doin’ non-stop shit!! You sound like you havin’ fun on dis one, doin’ a GREAT job! I don’t think T-Dub should’ve sang at tha end. Either way, HOT shit again! My Rating: 4.3

11. “Dumb&Stupid” Feat. Level
Looks real good on tha ID, but a lil’ controversy here. If you tryna push it, I’ma have ta ignore it unfortunately. Unless tha featured artist can ACCEPT thingz from me, let my name & talents be heard on his MySpace and all dat, THEN I’ll be able ta feel comfortable supportin’ him! I may try and call him one more time on Labor Day; will he accept my support? Let’s just hope tha featured person didn’t eva have sex wit T-Dub while makin’ this, lol! >>> You’re on tha beat again, Puppy, lol! It’s REALLY true dat you be doin’ dis shit!! REAL nice hook wit T-Dub on it, and tha 1st verse here from T-Dub herself, doin’ a nice job for err-body in tha club!! She “looks like candy,” so you KNOW she tasty! Dat boy Pup on tha 2nd verse; you sound like you havin’ fun again wit dis shit! Glad you “fulla dat fuckin’ fluid” and err-thang else you rappin’ about! Nice job from you, and tha both of you guys did a REAL nice job together!! Tha 3rd verse iz here, and… … … … ”WHEN LOVE TAKES OVER” BY DAVID GUETTA & KELLY ROWLAND JUST CAME ON MUSIC CHOICE DANCE!!! My Rating: 4.6

12. “Back2Back” Feat. Bro-Bro
I dunno if that’s your intentions of considerin’ tha title as 1 word instead of 3 (just like tha last song), but dat cool if it’s true. If I see anotha title spaced, then I’ll put tha title together. Anyway, this joint looks like it gon be on tha same level as tha last song; can it be true? >>> Yea, “back2back” wit dis HOT shit!! I think this beat sounds hotter for a start; might like dis one betta than tha last song! Did I hear “poppin’ pillz back2back?” Oh, shit!! Not only iz there Aladdin music in tha hook, but tha hook iz SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO jiggalatin’ style!!!!!!!! It even included “weed” too in tha hook, and tha “throw back” shit!!! WHAT A REAL FUCKIN’ NICE FUCKIN’ HOOK!!!!! Tha 1st verse here, and it soundin’ REAL NICE; dat Bro-Bro? Doin’ tha damn thang on dis fuckin’ song!!!!!!!!!!! One of tha sound effects on tha beat reminds me of how Blu Black made it sound on Yung Yola’s “On My Shit” joint (e.g., tha 4th line part in tha beat [1:33])! REAL FUCKIN’ TIGHT, and Puppy, you’re on tha 2nd verse here!! Bro-Bro REALLY fuckin’ did tha DAMN THANG on dat 1st verse, and you’re just doin’ anotha REAL NICE job!!! Yea, “a blunt fulla purple,” and “pillz in my hand;” you’re TOO fuckin’ crazy!!!! I thought “I’m So Fly” was gonna actually be tha #1 song, but this song iz approachin’ a **PERFECT RATING** as I speak; can tha 3rd verse keep up? Holy shit, dat screamin’ right before tha 3rd verse; I’m in heaven wit dis shit right here!!!!!!!!!!!!! Still comin’ through REAL STRONG here; I hope I get ta talk ta Bro-Bro soon by tha way!! Still can’t tell if dat him on tha 3rd verse also, but it’s REAL, REAL nice!!! My Rating: 5.0

13. “Diggin’ You”
Real long on tha length once again (nearly 4:50)!! I guess I’ll non-space those last 2 titles like you did. Afta dat REAL BIG song previously, how will we continue?!? >>> Not borin’ in tha beat start, so that’s good. What’s up wit dat sound effect at about :03-:04 in? FUCKIN’ LUV IT!!! T-Dub soundin’ pretty catchy/sexy on tha hook here. Just like Goldie from last year (which sadly had no exposure on many outlets), T-Dub’ll “make your body talk!” Catchy 1st verse, and she soundin’ good on dis! Tha 2nd verse here, and it sounds like you doin’ ya thang on dis, Pup! LOL @ anotha “feelin’ like Foxx, mama, wipe me down” quote! So many people quote dat song, no less Foxx wit tha quote too, lol. Dub doin’ her thang on tha 3rd verse here, holdin’ tha song down! Up, here comes tha pup Puppy on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse, addin’ some good shit. My Rating: 4.2

14. “How You Like It” (Nu$$ie Feat. Puppy)
Anotha familiar title… *Checks* Yup, from “The Champ Iz Here”. It was an okay start at first ‘til Nu$$ie came in and talked about his “brown pickle,” LMFAO! This iz what originally went down wit an original 4.1 rating: Decent start wit a decent hook… It doesn’t sound like him on tha 1st verse, but it’s aight. Oh wait neva mind, that’s Puppy. Puppy sounded better on that last joint… Not too crazy about this. Maybe Nu$$ie can save it? LMFAO @ him talkin’ about his “brown pickle.” WOW, kept this song alive!! NEVA GIVE UP ON YOUR CAREER [Nu$$ie]!!! YOU’RE VERY WELL RESPECTED BY ME!!! YOU’LL NEVA DIE!!!!! And yeah, he’s DEFINITELY tough since he’ll fuck someone else’s mother! Was gonna rate this like a 3.6, but he saved this shit!! <- To add: I dunno what I was thinkin’ ‘bout when I first heard it, but it’s REAL catchy in tha beginning! Gotta luv how Nu$$ie sounds in tha beginning, and Puppy, you comin’ through NICE on tha 1st verse here! Even on tha 2nd verse here, Puppy doin’ tha damn thang!! Oh wait, I heard Nu$$ come outta nowhere wit ad-libs here on tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse! Sounds REAL nice!! See, I might’ve been bored at 1st ‘cause it took ‘til 3:04 ta get ta Nu$$ie’s part, when I was originally reviewin’ his CD, and expected him ta come in sooner. I wish it was true wit my “YOU’LL NEVA DIE!!!!!” comment! He REALLY ripped dat song, and I’m REAL GLAD I had done buku shit fa Nu$$ie throughout 2008! Although we neva met, as long as I got a shout out from him on a mixtape, as well as him appreciatin’ what I been doin’ for him, then you KNOW it’s a good sign!! My Current Rating: 4.4

15. “They Lied (Radio Edit)” Feat. Nu$$ie
Not even a pushed song for you, and you put tha radio edit! Let’s cross our fingers dat I get dat undaground Louisiana show ta work out at my college tomorrow or within tha week! I’m gettin’ nervous about it… See #2 fa tha review!

16. “Woa Jack (Radio Edit)” Feat. DJ B-Real
Thanx for ANOTHA radio edit! You KNOW if dis shit works out at my college, I’ll show you BUKU luv (hopefully they let me)!! I mean, they should let me do dis shit ‘cause it’s a part of my grade!! See #1 fa tha review!

17. “Satisfied (Radio Edit)” Feat. Kewanna MeCole
Shit yea!! See #3 fa tha review!

18. “Do What It Do (Radio Edit)” Feat. Nu$$ie
Hate ta see it end outta nowhere, but you KNOW I behind in grindin’ today, as well as cleanin’ up my room ta fuck up tha internet! Also, I guess there’s no “I’m So Fly” radio edit here? I guess it was too new? I look forward ta gettin’ it in tha future (hopefully when I have tha radio shift at my college)! See #6 fa tha review!

Overall: VERY GOOD CD RIGHT HERE!!! I wasn’t even in a review mood, but I HAD ta get this review done! There were 3 songs I FUCKIN’ LUVED LIKE CRAZY!!! They got 4.9-5.0 ratings!!! That’s REALLY watz good!!! Plus, pretty much EVERY SONG had a NICE rating!!! Tha whole CD was REAL NICE!!! Glad you fuckin’ wit me, Puppy!! Keep doin’ ya thang and T-Dub too!!
