Reviewed on 7.31.2010 (Review #585)




Time fa anotha “NO To The BR” review, ya dig! I believe this one’s really new, as I just downloaded it not too long ago! Gettin’ ‘em ova wit, here goes my review for DJ 5150 & Dre “NO To The BR 4!! Start Time: 10:19 PM | End Time: 11:47 PM



Quick Note: 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) 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.

Source (Where I Got Tha CD From): http://www.livemixtapes.com/download/11977/no_to_the_br_4.html


01. DJ 5150 “Call DJ 5150 – 707.418.8437”
LOL, you know what it iz! >>> Sounded like it came outta nowhere wit tha beat, lol. My Rating: N/A


02. Calliope Var Feat. Eldorado Red “I’mma Gangsta”
I like how it’s labeled real nice here on tha mp3 info… Let’s hear dis on a Vybe beat! >>> Good intro and tha hook’s tha truth; sounds gr8 too! Calli’s on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice and fresh here for tha Summer ’10! Really holdin’ it down here fa tha hood to tha fullest! Tha 2nd verse iz here from Eldorado Red and he sounds like he can collab good wit Calliope! “Real”-ass hood shit! LOL, what happened @ 3:20? Sounded like a weird silence spot in tha beat before tha hook came on again… My Rating: 4.4


03. B-Raw Feat. Level & Young Ready “Dumb, Dumb, Duffy (Remix)”
Ooh, remix, lol… >>> Very advanced for tha Summer here wit J Buc on tha beat, lol! Sounds real gr8 as tha original so this iz good competition wit tha original! Even a REALLY upgraded B-Raw verse here!! DEFINITELY REAL CRAZY!!! Should EASILY remain its 5.0 rating! Level sounded pretty crazy on tha 2nd verse; A+ on tha flow too wit err-body so far!! This could be a first where tha original AND tha remix are both perfect-rated 1st listens! LOL, tha same Ready verse… My Rating: 5.0


04. B-Raw “XL”
LOL, what a short-ass ID! >>> Vybe beat and tha beginning’s remindin’ me of dat “I Got Swagger” song for some reason; I guess ‘cause it’s remade vocals while tha otha song was a white guy flow. Tha calm B-Raw on tha 1st verse here wit tha soundin’, lol! Good thing dat “it’s my party…” shit ain’t really tha hook; tha actual hook wit all tha “XL” shit sounds REAL catchy fa some reason!! I guess ‘cause I just luv tha short-ass title, lol! Good shit in tha 2nd verse; very jiggalasive, lol [term made up by me]!! Oh no, tha “my party…” shit’s towards tha ending too… My Rating: 4.3


05. Ray Vicks “John Dillinger”
LOL, this dude outta nowhere again? >>> Neva heard dis song; pretty funny on tha hook wit its tightness and tha name! Also, I’m feelin’ tha Southern beat! LOL @ tha “free my nigga Kevin Gates” shit in tha 1st verse; funny how certain rappers aren’t treated equal when their statuses are like tha same ta me, lol… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ gutta, especially from tha heart! My Rating: 4.3


06. Delwin The Krazyman Feat. Ceddybu “Macho Man”
Ceddybu has spelled his name as a word, not two words. Anyway, brand new for me; saw it online so let’s see… >>> Really gettin’ sick of these Nu$$ie quotes, especially when they sounded identical… Even Nu$$ie’s brother was okay wit it; I’m not. Regardless, maybe I can finally get Ceddybu on my radio show now although I’d rather hear a song of his… Tha hook sounds good; I like how it’s repetitive durin’ tha 2nd ½ of tha hook… Ceddy sounds a lil’ like a huge child (or someone wit a huge-pitched voice) wit tha vocals on his verse; it’s definitely tolerable for me though (of course). Delwin’s back on tha 3rd verse and what’s a “Kimbo Slice?” Heard it twice and I keep hearin’ it; iz it anotha catchphrase? ROFL @ his “saggin’;” Delwin’d down, ROFL! I like all tha “teeth” shit at tha end! My Rating: 3.7


07. Max Minelli Feat. Reno & Young Ready “Gunto”
Interestin’ title and collab… >>> Good sound on tha beat and Max’s pretty gutta on tha 1st verse! Tha rest of tha 1st verse’s cool too… LOL @ this hook and title; good shit! Reno’s comin’ through pretty gutta too on tha 2nd verse; consistentness at its finest!! A lil’ boring start to Ready’s verse here on tha 3rd verse… If these verses from him sound like this, I hope to not hear him again on this mixtape; twice iz enough… Doesn’t sound like tha otha two verses to me, unfortunately. My Rating: 4.2


08. B.G. & Lil’ Boosie Feat. Gar “The Bottom”
>>> I didn’t get ta hear dat B.G./Boosie CD yet so I’m gettin’ tha exclusive hook-up on dis right now. Cool production here wit a good job on tha hook! Gizzle’s on tha 1st verse and it’s mo hot, hood shit! Gar must’ve snuck into tha hook ‘cause sometimes, I don’t recognize him… Yea, yea, a Boosie verse for tha 2nd verse…; I don’t need ta really say anything. Speakin’ of “mosquitos killin’ people,” there’s these dirt diver mud wasps ‘round Long Island, NY ‘cause of tha hot weather, lol. This year’s tha 1st time I’m seein’ ‘em… My Rating: 4.5


09. Lucci Lou Feat. Mack Maine, T@ & Lil’ Wayne “Bitch, I’m From The N.O.”
Not sure how excited I am fa dis…; who’s T@? >>> Sounds like a mainstream song wit an undaground title. Mack Maine’s on tha 1st verse and it’s just okay; I don’t need ta really say anything about him since he’s kinda mainstream for me… Dat Lucci Lou dude’s on tha 2nd verse and this izn’t somethin’ I’d break a back for to hear… Mysterious T@ dude on tha 3rd verse… Catchy rhymes on this verse… My Rating: 3.7


10. Magnolia Chop “Over”
>>> Bad start for me wit tha beat. Oh, this ‘pose ta be tha Drake beat, smh? Thought dis was Skip or someone from tha Nolia clique at first and not Magnolia Chop… Ehh @ tha hook; not really crazy about it at all. Horrible, gay vocals on tha 1st verse; didn’t expect dis gettin’ worse! Shouldn’t even deserve 2:52, especially on a mainstream beat!! I thought it was 2010; why am I still hearin’ vocals soundin’ like dis? Let’s throw up a gay sign! SMH @ “follow me on Twitter;” rap before tha technology websites! What iz wit tha rappin’? I thought he just did hooks and sung? My Rating: 1.1


11. Kevin Gates “No Hook”
Hope this iz betta… >>> Beat’s a lil’ boring fa me; he had betta songs on tha previous mixtapes! Tha rhymes are just okay here too; a lil’ betta than tha beat. “No hook?” Thought there was gonna be just straight rappin’ without a beat break on tha “hook?” Tha 2nd verse’s only decent fa me… I prolly would’ve heard a betta story from Gates. LOL, a 3rd verse fit too? I believe it’s tha best verse outta this song so far…; a lil’ betta for tha hood here. My Rating: 3.8


12. Lil’ Boosie Feat. Locco “Rain”
Looks hella boring; might’ve heard it too… >>> Nope, new for me. Why do we need anotha Boosie song? Maybe a good verse but not that fitting of a beat and a really bad hook fa me. WTF? Must be a fuck up title; I KNEW IT!!! Sounds really familiar wit Locco on tha hook (not sourced); I could careless anyway… Tha 2nd verse’s pretty strong too; a really mixed review from me. My Rating: 2.1


½time: A coupla fuck ups to where tha average CD rating decreased by 0.5 due to them… But, it’s all about quality shit so let’s see if some mo “Dumb, Dumb, Duffy”-type shit can come outta dis; only a 3.7 average CD rating so far.


13. Mr. Marcelo “Lights Out”
Hopefully a refreshin’ start to tha 2nd ½… >>> I knew it would be pretty stale for a start; not a fan of these kinda beats. Good rappin’ from Mr. Celo though… Good ending wit “I run tha undaground!” My Rating: 3.0


14. Mouse On Tha Track Feat. Lil’ Trill, Foxx, Webbie & Lil’ Boosie (Trill Fam) “Turn The Beat Up”
A.K.A. Trill Fam here. Didn’t know there was a lineup like dis ‘til it actually premiered on Music Choice Rap last week. It’s “Turn The Beat Up,” not “Turn It Up.” For some reason, this sounds cheesy on tha hook as I’m hearin’ tha title too clearly but iz still real hot. Iz dat tha biggest dickridin’ order or what? It’s like an order ta decide who can get dickrided tha most, smh… Good 1st verse from Mouse, holdin’ it down as always. Tha 1st ½ of tha 2nd verse from Lil’ Trill’s good and tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse from Foxx’s really good (as usual)! Tha 1st ½ of tha 3rd verse from Webbie’s good wit how he comes through, usually, on tracks so you know I always respect tha Web, lol! Tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse from Boosie’s soundin’ gr8 this time, lol! My Current Rating: 4.5


15. Lil’ Cali Feat. Level & Tank Jones “Money Right”
Now “right” when it was “rite” previously; you’re funny! BTW, why iz there a Lil’ Cali verse also on tha 2nd verse? Bullshit! No wonder why it’s “right” instead of “rite,” smh… Oh wait, no Tank Jones verse, lol? I did like tha Level verse betta so tha rating’ll be a 4.6 instead… Huh? Why all tha confusion? Now, Level’s verse was a ½ and Tank Jones’s was a ½? Too confusin’ so I’ll go to 4.5 instead! My Rating: 4.5


16. Young Ready Feat. Lil’ Dundray “Beep Beep”
>>> New Young Ready song wit J Buc on tha beat… Good beat but why does it sound like Delwin The Krazyman a lil’? I think there’s too much hangin’ out or somethin’, which I don’t know how dat’s done… I was waitin’ ta hear this when it came ta review time and here we are…; not on tha female-R&B tip, luckily… Only a decent 1st verse fa me… Someone’s on tha 2nd verse; almost a lil’ weird ta figure out who it iz… I googled it and it’s Lil’ Dundray; not bad wit hearin’ him for tha 1st time… Don’t know why he wasn’t listed… Didn’t think I’d hear tha word “YouTube” outta Ready’s mouth on a song… This iz missin’ a lil’ bit of some gangsta shit… I still think tha “beep beep” shit iz pretty catchy on tha hook. But, wit this timin’, I don’t think this’ll be successful fa me… My Rating: 4.2


17. Magnolia Boyz Feat. B.G. “Fuck U”
Now DIS iz a Young Ready-type attitude, only it’s bein’ played in Magnolia Boyz and B.G.’s handz!! >>> Very good beat here and tha hook’s just gutta to tha bone when it comes ta tha streetz!! Such a REAL GR8 beat here ta hold tha streetz and street rhymes down!! Hot shit comin’ from B.G. on tha 2nd verse; DEFINITELY feelin’ tha 5+ minute length! Mo Magnolia shit on tha 3rd verse wit this gutta-ass shit!! Some Magnolia Chop singin’ towards tha end? Now, it’s remindin’ me of tha “Same Ol’ Shit” but dat A-Tune makes tha rating go down fa me. My Rating: 4.5


18. 2 Saint Presents The Recruits Feat. Max Minelli, Down Bad, Derty, C-Murder, Rudye & IL Duce “Dumb”
I was like, what’s this song? Completely ID’d wrong! I’ll fix dat once it’s finished. For now, lemme review this finally… Max’s on tha 1st verse and he’s bringin’ his energy to tha track! Terror of Down Bad’s on tha 2nd ½ of tha 1st verse and it’s cool but some of those quotes get boring… LOL @ tha Derty hook; random… He’s even on tha start of tha 2nd verse. I still feel like he should put a CD out before all these features…; not bad shit from him… Tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse’s C-Murder and it sounds good; gives a good fit here! Tha start of tha 3rd verse iz Rudye; why ain’t he on tha ID? He was AT LEAST on BET!! Interestin’ shit from him; he spittin’ some good, updated 2010 shit! Tha 2nd part of tha 3rd verse iz IL Duce (anotha dude not on tha ID here) and it sounds gr8 wit his contributin’ rhymes! There’s a 3rd part of tha 3rd verse and it’s JR Dot of Down Bad; good fa what it iz. Lemme see if it cuts off like it did wit mine… Yup, it cut off. My Current Rating: 4.4
ID Correction: It’s not C-Murder Feat. Max Minelli, Derty & Down Bad, it’s 2 Saint Presents The Recruits Feat. Max Minelli, Down Bad, Derty, C-Murder, Rudye & IL Duce!


19. One-i Feat. Savage & Lil’ Cali “Sick Wit It”
LOL, there’s really a “c” in tha title here so dat’s an error. Heard this on about 10 CDs by now; kinda late… I don’t mind dat tha 3rd verse was cut on here either, lol. My Current Rating: 4.8


20. Savage Feat. Mouse On Tha Track “Work It Out”
Looks old but prolly new from Savage’s new CD; lemme hear! >>> LOL, HOT shit once again from Savage and no less, my wish came true from two years ago wit Mouse on tha collaboration!! Cool Bounce-soundin’ influenced beat here and tha 1st verse from Savage’s soundin’ jammin’ so dat’s a plus! LOL, eatin’ all tha pie here, Savage; he’s on tha 2nd verse too! Mo jammin’-ass Savage shit on tha 2nd verse! He DEFINITELY doin’ a nice job wit holdin’ dis down! I look forward ta hearin’ dis when I hear it on Savage’s new CD too! Mouse’s on tha 3rd verse and it’s catchy; prolly was just okay wit Savage but a collaboration’s like a party, lol! My Current Rating: 4.5
EDIT: Damn, tricked again! Didn't realize this was from tha '08 dayz; my bad.


21. ABC “Kimbo Slice”
LOL, there’s always a chance where I accidently peek at one of tha titles and fa damn sure, I’m always correct when I thought I saw a mirage! I usually call ‘em A+B+C (A.R., BluBlack & Classik) but it’s aight as ABC here… Did I e-mail dis ta you? I e-mailed it to a lotta people and here it iz… Lemme review it here… >>> Beat’s good; above average since it’s BluBlack on tha beat. Tha hook’s kinda catchy but I kinda don’t have anything ta say about it sometimes… Why iz BluBlack’s verse censored and shit? I was tryin’ to radio edit it and all tha censored shit was confusin’ me… Good verse; okay fa him though. I still feel kinda funny if this iz tha “single” from tha “Da Formula” CD… Tha 2nd verse iz A.R.; catchy here wit tha flow… Classik’s on tha 3rd verse and it’s also decent… Maybe if I heard this a bunch of times, I’d like it betta but it’s a decent song fa me. My Current Rating: 3.8


22. Fiend Feat. Shawty & Conerboy P “Spotlight”
Not sure of this title but let’s hear dis lineup! >>> Tha beginning’s not bad but tha beat’s pretty gutta to tha bone!! DEFINITELY hot shit comin’ out tha 1st verse here for tha undaground!! Tha hook’s cool; “spotlight” shit… Tha 2nd verse sounds like a white dude, lol? Good rhymes but not much fa me ta say… Now, tha 3rd verse’s pretty good and fits wit dis joint; good shit! My Rating: 4.1


23. Q-Red “Lean & Weed”
Why iz it only 1:29? Random new song; I’d thought I’d hear “To Particles” or somethin’, lol! >>> It’s funny ta have an age of 1x (x = 0-9) and be all drugged up, lol… Tha vocals on tha hook almost scared me at first but tha verse keeps me company so I’m DEFINITELY likin’ dis catchy shit! So short ‘cause it’s just a worldwide exclusive sample? My Rating: 4.7


24. Curren$y Feat. Trademark & Young Roddy “Roasted”
Thought dat was Ready on tha feature for a second, lol! Let’s see this endin’ song wit a good title… >>> Kinda like an endin’ song here; tha song sounds dry wit tha beat. Dry 1st verse ‘til tha “weed” shit @ 1:06… Tha hook’s decent for me; nothin’ ta brag about… Curren$y’s on tha 2nd verse and although his voice holds it down, tha rhymes are just decent fa me; at least they’re on a hood level… Tha 3rd verse I have nothin’ ta really say about… Funny cold-ass endin’ to tha mixtape, lol! My Rating: 2.9


Overall: I feel like my ratings decrease wit each CD. But, there’s hot songs on here so thumbs up! Really surprised me wit tha Q-Red near-endin’!!

Source (Where I Got Tha CD From): http://www.datpiff.com/DJ_5150_No_2_The_Br_3.m110634.html


01. DJ 5150 “Call DJ 5150 – 707.418.8437”
LOL, startin’ tha same way we did tha last time! >>> Representin’! My Rating: N/A


02. Calliope Var Feat. Mr. Marcelo & Lil’ Cali “I’m On It (Remix)”
New joint it looks like; let’s see… >>> VERY HOT start!!! Yea, this iz definitely familiar but this iz a remix so you know it’s updated! Calliope’s doin’ tha damn thang here on tha 1st verse still as well as tha REALLY GR8 hook!! Once again, REALLY GR8 collab wit Marcelo and now, wit Cali (wit an “l” less, lol)! Likin’ dat “rollin’ like dice;” dumb shit! My Rating: 4.8


03. Delwin The Krazyman “Mobbin’ (Remix)”
Released on DatPiff April 12, 2010. I think I might’ve got Delwin’s CD ‘round tha same time… Still sounds pretty good right chea… My Current Rating: 4.3


04. Delwin The Krazyman Feat. B-Raw & Level “Thuggin’ & Druggin’”
Young Hits beat; didn’t look at tha ID yet… Oh, now, I hear tha hook and it’s anotha Delwin joint, lol… This one’s much betta than tha “Mobbin’” remix; feelin’ tha features too!! Level’s gotta be tha 1st one I heard say, “I love drugs,” without any secret or nothin’, lol! My Current Rating: 4.6


05. Lil’ Dee “To Tha Max”
Neva heard Lil’ Dee but it’s remindin’ me of Lil’ Six from tha last mixtape… Let’s see what’s good wit dis! >>> LOL, he chose a Vybe beat. Tha start sounds REAL HOT like tha Lil’ Six song!! They’re like EQUAL wit how GR8 they sound for a 1st listen!! Nice, nice job on tha 1st verse, ya dig!! Tha 2nd verse’s not bad; a lil’ cheesy wit tha “O Let’s Do It” quote, lol… No feature listed for tha 3rd verse? Why iz everything mysterious wit tha newbies? Good shit, though… My Rating: 4.7


06. Mr. Marcelo Speaks
Let’s see what my boy has ta say… >>> That’s right! All about tha WHOLE Louisiana!! My Rating: N/A


07. Mr. Marcelo “My Life Is A Movie”
Just like tha Baby L’s mixtape from last year dat I just reviewed, lol. Let’s see dis shit… >>> An okay start. Tha hook sounds good here… Marcelo “can get shit poppin’!” “Chillin’ wit my niggaz out smokin’…;” I wonder how dat happens? Still tryin’ ta know… Good verse and he doin’ his thang here! Tha 2nd verse’s keepin’ it goin’! Glad you gave a shout out ta “Var” too! Tha 3rd verse has a GR8 flow! I like tha “like I move dat yay” shit! My Rating: 4.0


08. C-Loc Feat. Dat Boy A & Big Head “Top To Bottom”
Didn’t realize I knew this fa a second; boo… I was startin’ ta get anticipated for a second… I like tha Mary J. Blige sample but would’ve expected a lil’ betta from Q-Red on tha beat. But, he still adds his GR8 sound organs! Tha 1st verse I believe iz Dat Boy A (‘cause I don’t think DJ Wookee raps) ‘cause this was from tha “Camp Life 2010” CD wit them on it; too bad for not listin’ tha feature… My Current Rating: 3.9


09. Bad Azz Ent. “Letter To My Dog”
Would’ve heard this here 1st so I’ll paste tha review: Betta than average; good beat… Good ½ verses here (I guess ta Boosie); y’all got shit on lock. However, I can’t picture carin’ about a non-family member this much outside of seein’ them; I can’t even imagine ‘cause people don’t treat me right in public/out of public. Tha two ½ verses in tha 2nd verse sound gr8; Big Wayne’s EASILY stands out fa me! He has dat voice and energy dat just stands out! A 3rd verse here… Must be only a ½ (I think) ‘cause there’s a short amount of time left on dis… My Current Rating: 4.3


10. Calliope Var Speaks
Now, let’s hear what Calliope has ta say… >>> Good shout out fa “Gardere!” My Rating: N/A


11. B.G. Feat. Calliope Var & Mannie Fresh “My Hood (Remix)”
Was ‘bout ta say, “this song?” I thought it was gonna be a “Gardere” artist/song based off tha previous skit… Kinda boring now but now, let’s see wit Calliope on tha remix! >>> Still same beat but no Mannie Fresh on tha feature; gon put him in! Tha 1st verse sounds gr8 from Calliope, contributin’ good! Still good wit B.G. on tha 2nd verse… My Rating: 4.2


12. Shawt Feat. Scarface “Hot Love”
>>> Scary start; didn’t see tha ID yet… *Checks* New song but I’ll try to tolerate this… Tha 1st verse from Shawt’s pretty good… Tha hook’s now remindin’ me dat this’ll be a future mainstream song? Scarface’s on tha 2nd verse and although it’s gr8, I think I should like this more ‘cause of tha good, gutta beat sounds here! Tha interludes before tha verses are soundin’ kinda gay for me… Shawt’s spittin’ an aight verse ta end this… My Rating: 3.6


13. Ray Vicks Feat. Lil’ Boosie “Go Hard”
More “featuring” than “and” on tha ID so dat’s an error… I surprisingly heard this thanx ta downloadin’ off DatPiff later than this mixtape’s release so check out what went down: Sounds okay for a start but it’s definitely hot for a song/hook! “We got” HOT shit here on tha 1st verse from Vicks; lots of shit! Tha 2nd verse from Boosie’s good; good job wit tha collab! He did tha damn thang on tha end of tha verse too! My Current Rating: 4.4


½time: Sounded like tha last mixtape went “harder” than this one for a start but this still sounds real hot! A GR8 4.3 average CD rating so far so we’ll see what happens…


14. B-Raw “I Got Swagger”
New song? Lemme hear… >>> School bell? Even tha 1st word was “school,” lol? Uh oh, mainstream beat here. I don’t even rememba what it iz but I won’t think of dat… Sounds pretty good on tha 1st verse; always enjoy B-Raw here… I hope this ain’t dat Mims beat from ’08 (“Move (If You Wanna)”); dat’s a lil’ gay but this ain’t close ta gay! See, when it’s B-Raw on a beat like dis, it sounds hot than gay, gay, gay… Tha hook’s good on tha 1st ½ but tha 2nd ½ sounds like a white dude mixed wit OJ; that’s a lil’ gay for me. Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty good too… My Rating: 3.7


15. Max Minelli “Channel Guide”
This iz on a new tip for me too! >>> Hope this ain’t a title change; I think it’s new. Tha hook’s hot here; addictive! Cool production here… Tha 1st verse sounds good; sounds like a jam here. Interestin’ 2nd verse here; “overdosin’ on success!” My Rating: 4.3


16. Calliope Var Speaks
Let’s hear! >>> Ehh… I’ll take tha “dopeman” ova tha “Gucci Mane.” My Rating: N/A


17. Lil’ Cali Feat. Level & Tank Jones “Money Rite”
LOL! Glad you threw this on here too! I don’t mind seein’ this on 100’s otha CDs/mixtapes, lol! My Current Rating: 4.8


18. Mr. Marcelo “I Don’t Know You”
Let’s hear dis one… >>> An oldie? Or, iz it a bound-ta-be “classic?” Not that good of a start fa me wit this beat… Tha rhymes sound good on tha 1st verse… LOL, I like tha “run like a potato” part, lol! Tha hook maybe a lil’ catchy but this iz a touch boring too ‘cause of tha beat… At least it’s a “grindin’” anthem! Good “play wit them keys; me and Alicia” part! I heard a long time ago dat someone said, “Alicia; we like tha same keys” or some line like dat and it was REAL GR8 ta hear!! Tha 3rd verse has more catchy rhymes right here! My Rating: 3.8


19. Kevin Gates “We Don’t Give A Fuck”
Mouse on tha beat here; new song? >>> Doesn’t sound new on tha hook… Then again, don’t think I know this so this iz a plus wit Mouse on tha beat once again! Tha Youngbloodz/Lil’ Jon “Damn” joint neva gets old ta sample and shit like dat! Good 1st verse; sounds like everyone else though… LOL, more added to tha hook here? Lemme ROFL! Gotta ROFL when I hear tha Jamaican vocals! Now, tha 2nd verse DEFINITELY sounds much betta here!! Consistent shit dat’s not typical at all!! For some reason, I guess ‘cause of tha typical 1st verse, this joint sounded a lil’ short… My Rating: 4.4


20. Louisiana Ca$h Feat. Mouse “My Bounce”
Kinda small ta see if you put tha “$” on tha Ca$h; it almost looks like it but then again, I dunno… This sounds like a good follow-up single for him but I’m not crazy wit addin’ it right away; I’d rather just wait ‘til it gets released. LOL, a very cold, cut-off ending? My Current Rating: 4.0


21. Down Bad Feat. Lil’ Phat “Goin’ Ham”
LOL… Neva got ta review it but I got ta put it on my radio show; catchy shit wit a real good beat… I dunno when I’ll get ta play this as I have tha “Locs On” song in rotation currently… I be gettin’ too many songs so it’s hard ta add certain songs here and there… Afta dat crazy-ass 1st verse from Cage (and tha hook too), Terror’s on tha 2nd verse and tha rhymes are catchy… For some reason, Lil’ Phat sounds like a baby wit his voice here. No offense at all to you, Phat; Sade “Babyfather”’s nearby, lol! My Current Rating: 4.5


22. Ray Vicks “Bands”
Must’ve heard this too since it’s Ray Vicks… SMH @ shortenin’ this ta remove tha features. They just called this “Bands” so you’re one word too much on here, lol. A decrease in tha rating a lil’ ‘cause of no Yungsta & Squirm G. My Current Rating: 3.8


23. Kevin Gates “Seems”
>>> Uh, oh, lol, anotha Kevin Gates song… *Checks ID* ROFL, what a short title! This iz a 1st time hearin’! This iz interestin’ wit tha beat and tha storyline goin’ on here in tha 1st verse! A lot’s even goin’ on in tha hook too; interestin’… Even more hot shit comin’ outta tha 2nd verse; buku shit here!! And, tha 3rd verse… Because of all tha conversatin’, I’ll rate this pretty high. I feel like I almost like all tha songs tha same but this gets a plus from tha conversations! My Rating: 4.6


24. Big Poppa Feat. Hatchboy & Shell “Free My Niggas”
Good, a new joint wit a nice lineup!! >>> LOL, everyone sayin’, “Free Boosie;” surprisin’ (‘cause I still don’t know how people care on tha outside)! This must be a “seasonal” song ‘cause if these dudes get outta jail, then, what iz this song, lol? Tha 1st verse sounds good wit Poppa on it; thought I heard a shout out ta “Bleek?” ROFL, why iz Shell on tha ID 1st? No dickridin’ rule! Pretty good verse here; nice and energetic on tha mic for tha streetz! Shell’s on tha 3rd verse and he sounded like a lil’ kid in tha beginnin’? Sounds like a good verse but not tha same anticipation I had back in tha day. Can’t be Facebook’d; be tha same like on MySpace! I like tha “nani goat” part, lol! Tha rest of tha verse sounded good but it would just be betta if I can just have Shell write back ta me online… My Rating: 4.2


25. B-Raw Feat. Nu$$ie & Delwin The Krazyman “Who Next”
Why tha “R.I.P.” next to tha ID? It looks gay when I see it too many times… Tha “Free Boosie” iz acceptable though… Anyway, I was 20 when I heard this so this iz pretty ancient. But, I can get it on my radio show now since this iz a good reminder… This again iz shortened (missin’ Da Jackel) so a lil’ decrease in tha original 4.9 rating. Still, it’s VERY catchy as how it was back in tha day! My Current Rating: 4.7


26. Lil’ Boosie Feat. Ray Vicks “That Fire”
I still can’t picture this bein’ an “and” instead of a “featuring;” are they comin’ wit a CD together? >>> Low quality, lol? Sounds like somethin’ gay for me in tha beginning… Although catchy on tha hook, it’s just an okay song wit a pretty good beat for me. An okay verse from Boosie on tha 1st verse but how many times do I have ta hear him/about him on one mixtape compilation? I can’t take these typical lyrics on tha 2nd verse sometimes; sorry, Ray… My Rating: 3.5


27. B Streezy Feat. Lil’ Boosie “She Bad”
>>> Pretty “bad” for me; worse than tha last song! I can’t deal wit gay R&B singer voices… Iz this “NO To The BR” or “Britney To The Christina?” Not likin’ tha Pop/R&B sound; Boosie doesn’t even fit here. Just sounds like more of dat obsession dat I mentioned wit tha last song! I hope this neva appears on anotha review of mine… Why iz this 3:36? This iz ‘pose to be a Rap compilation so my rating’ll easily be lower! I rather’ve “WTF?”’d at Nu$$ie’s “Vapors” again (if it would’ve reappeared) than listened to this! My Rating: 1.2


Overall: Tha average CD rating’s 4.3… Wait, no! It’s only 4.1 ‘cause tha last two jointz, smh… It still was a gr8 mixtape though! I wasn’t too thrilled wit all tha Boosie shit. It’s like, I’m here to hear a compilation CD fulla artists, not tha same artist a bunch of times! I wonder what #4 has in store…

Review #583: DJ 5150 & Dre "NO To The BR 2"

Reviewed on 7.31.2010 (Review #583)




Damn, eight dayz went by since my last review? Shit… Dat’s ‘cause right when I finished Review #582, I was expected to hang wit this dude. But, he put me off for his ex every single day after. Also, a rapper flew from Baton Rouge to New York and he had me waiting two dayz for nothin’. We were ‘pose to video shoot, get pics and maybe even get a drop from him for my radio show but he decided not to; it’s his loss… I still can’t figure out how people can hang out and agree wit each other; very impossible for me for some reason… But now, after makin’ some radio edits tha past few dayz, I’m back in review mode and hopefully, I’ll be up-to-date! Here goes tha startin’ review for today: DJ 5150 & Dre “NO To The BR 2! LOL, props on tha address too on tha back, lol! That’s a first for a current CD! Start Time: 12:11 PM | End Time: 1:39 PM



Quick Note: 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) 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.

Source (Where I Got Tha CD From): http://www.datpiff.com/5150_No_To_The_Br_2.m90225.html

NOTE: A lot of tha songs I had previously reviewed. I didn’t feel like pasting most of them. If you wanna see tha original (or updated) review to some of tha songs, you can browse through my blog @ frankiethaluckydog.blogspot.com and find each artist/each time I reviewed each CD.


01. DJ 5150 “Call DJ 5150 – 707.418.8437”
I still haven’t called yet; I think I’ll do these reviewz first. However, I believe Calliope Var’s behind you on what I do and everything so I guess when we talk, it might be betta than average for a first call! >>> Must be Kevin Gates “Dangerous” in tha 1st song… “(225) 304-6142?” A different numba? My Rating: N/A


02. Kevin Gates “Dangerous”
Still has tha “certified…” tag in tha beginning, lol. I was able to “mix” it out when I put it on my Spring 2010 mixtape! Still a good song; did above average on my playlist… My Current Rating: 4.3


03. B.G. Feat. Plies, C-Murder, Lil’ Boosie & Soulja Slim “Nigga Owe Me Some Money (Remix – Extended Clip)”
Remix style here! >>> I’ll throw Soulja Slim in tha ID here too since he was in tha original ID and iz on tha hook here too! Still sounds pretty gutta wit tha B.G. verse! “All about every penny and nickel!” LOL, Plies on tha 2nd verse? I’ll put him before C-Murder here; tha “no dickridin’ rule” when it comes to tha order. Pretty gutta from Plies; he doesn’t give up wit tha demands, lol!! Same thing wit tha hook: CONTINUOUS and it puts me in a good mood ‘cause it’s Slim repeatin’! Plies was “gutta” but now, wit C on tha 3rd verse, he’s got tha “gangsta/hood” shit here; VERY GOOD!! LOL, what happened @ 3:32 when Lil’ Boosie came in? Sounded like tha “nigga” part was missin’ from tha 1st word of his verse and was like a weird paste… More gutta shit; gr8 combo on tha whole remix!! Sounds like a Soulja Slim ending too? My Rating: 4.7


04. Mouse On Tha Track & Lil’ Cali Feat. Wissel “How U Like Me Now”
Coupla errors: “The” iz really “Tha” in Mouse’s name and tha original, incorrect spellin’ of “Wissle” (since it’s really “Wissel”). Good shit here but there are betta songs on tha “Just Because” mixtape… Not really in tha mood ta hear Wiss again ‘cause I still didn’t get anything from him in tha mail… And, I shouldn’t have ta re-hear his rhymes ‘til I get shit in tha mail! Are all those rhymes tha reason why a DJ can’t get music? My Current Rating: 4.5


05. Mouse On Tha Track Feat. Lil’ Trill & Lil’ Boosie “Rubbin’ On My Head (Remix)”
LOL, this again (“again” means when it was January 2010, I had heard these songs already)… I don’t think Mouse’s name iz a whole word either (MouseOnTheTrack). Plus, Lil’ Trill’s before Boosie on tha ID. Still good although I refer it to last year. My Current Rating: 4.8


06. Down Bad Feat. Louisiana Ca$h & Derty “Locs On”
LOL, tha “oc” part in tha beginning was cut a lil’ from tha mixin’. I make sure I don’t do dat in tha beginning, not to be cocky. Ca$h’s name has a dolla sign in it and Derty’s missin’ from tha feature… I think when it was January, I didn’t get ta hear tha whole song so I’ll paste tha review… I heard a completely different “Loc’s On” song from rappers Dog & Tech; that one iz betta so far than this. But, this iz pretty catchy at tha same time. Tha hook pretty catchy fa everyone so it’ll be a worldwide plus, lol. Louisiana Ca$h had an above average 1st verse here. What will we have next? Jack Da Rippa here on tha 2nd verse; LMAO @ his 2009 “So Whopped” rendition! Definitely felt dat line and he did a pretty good job on his verse; you KNOW he hella catchy!! ROFL, it’s Terror!! Nice job from him deliverin’ his raps! JR comes through on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse; nice and lol @ tha “Wipe Me Down” part (again, still hearin’ dat quote). This iz different… there were three parts to tha verse ‘cause Derty snuck in on tha 3rd 1/3 of tha 3rd verse. Again, where’s tha energy? I thought he’d come through like a beast or somethin’, lol. An okay job from him… My Current Rating: 4.4


07. Shawt “U Know What It Is”
Almost thought it was a newbie but accordin’ to my iTunes, I had heard him from “Next 2 Blow: New Orleans 2009”. I neva heard this song so let’s see dis… >>> Pretty catchy start! Sounds like tha intro can fit as tha 1st joint on this mixtape ‘cause of its “intro” vibe… Even a lil’ “Over Here” sample in tha hook mixed wit what Shawt’s got… Tha 1st verse’s on his shit here accordin’ to how he comin’ through! Tha title part sounds almost weird at first wit tha voice, lol. Tha 2nd verse’s comin’ through wit some “Levis;” dumb shit! Even an outro on here, lol? My Rating: 4.1


08. The Show “Fa├žade”
New song also… >>> Stevie Drumma start on tha beat here. Sounds dark for a start but tha background sample can be scary… Real good rhymes from him so this iz tolerable. If this was some random bullshit, online rapper, then this would be down tha tubes! Tha hook sounds like I heard it before? I dunno but it sounds pretty good! Listenin’ to The Show reminds me of two Summers ago wit Big Boot Radio… I hope to make a resurrection soon ta listenin’ to them… Definitely a good 2nd verse and a 3rd verse can fit here and iz keepin’ this shit hot!! Thought I’d rate it pretty average at first but it can be addictin’! My Rating: 4.4


09. Juvenile Feat. Mouse On Tha Track “Shine”
Huh? Removed from DatPiff? Why? Didn’t hear this on his latest CD… Lemme see what DatPiff linked it to… Didn’t link me to tha song; just his name. What a bunch of shit… Couldn’t even find it on Amazon so I gon YouTube it since it’s a new song for me… Damn, not on YouTube too? WTF…? *Hears tha 30 second DatPiff sample* >>> Knew it was a lil’ familiar… All this trouble ‘cause you had tha wrong title on tha back cover? Really “I’m Shining”! Either way, it’s DEFINITELY HOT so that’s a PLUS on why it’s here!! My Current Rating: 4.4


10. Calliope Var Feat. C-Murder & Kayotic “Home Of The Dope (Remix)”
Anotha REAL hot one… Must be shortened ‘cause I heard a longer one… Still soundin’ REAL GR8 though; all about tha trap, just like tha “spot” on tha side of my grandma’s house where I’m at, lol… Tha rating’s a touch lower since there’s less members on this… My Current Rating: 4.8


½time: Well, sounds REAL GR8, y’all!! Whether I know tha songs or not, tha HOT SHIT iz here and iz DEFINITELY consistent!! Tha average CD rating’s at a NICE 4.5 right now; keep these HOT bangaz comin’ along!!!


11. Beck Beats Feat. Birdman “Uptown”
DatPiff didn’t remove, lol? Don’t think I heard… >>> Actually sounds good; lol @ tha beat tag person! I like tha soundin’ of tha 1st verse here; must be dem Beck Beats peeps! I thought tha “S-H-O-T” was gonna say,” S-H-I-T,” lol!! Tha 2nd verse iz Beck Beats too? You sure this ain’t Beck Beats Feat. Birdman? I’ll leave it for now until I see somethin’ in tha future… Pretty good soundin’ but now, I hear them on tha 3rd verse too and it must be their official song so I’ll consider tha ID an error! Nice job wit tha “coughin’” too, lol! No wonder why they didn’t remove dis; dis iz Beat Beats’s song! My Rating: 4.2


12. Webbie Feat. Lil’ Phat & Birdman “Do It Bigger (Remix)”
Same here; I thought this was Phat’s song… I played it for 15-18 weeks wit an error, smh? >>> LOL, sounded like an extra beat part (key) played in tha beginning… This sounds exactly tha same as what I heard; did everyone have an error? Then again, on tha Supa Unit CD, I didn’t have a tracklisting and on tha “Death Before Dishonor” CD, it was Phat’s CD so it could’ve just been “featured” on there… Weird order too since Phat’s at tha end of tha ID… Still feelin’ tha whole song, especially dat hook wit tha “picture” part and tha “do it bigger/chew it bigga!” Even J Buc on tha beat!! My Current Rating: 4.6
EDIT: Forgot to mention: tha “Do It”’s missin’ in tha title…


13. Big Poppa “Roll Call”
Looks new for me; lookin’ forward ta hearin’!! >>> Don’t know who’s beat tag iz this beat (“Big Beat?” “Big E?”)… Ooh, sounds like a good G-Funk sound in tha hook, lol! Interestin’ hook too as it’s hella catchy wit tha way it sounds! Poppa sounds much betta now than his “Rollin’ Like An 18-Wheeler” CD! LOL @ all tha “eatin’ McDonalds!” Fuck! A non-sourced feature on tha 2nd verse! Too bad I’m not 100% sure of who it iz; don’t know many people in Shreveport… Damn, he’s on tha 3rd verse too? Iz this song tha dude on tha 2nd and 3rd verse? No wonder why this iz betta than average, lol… My Rating: 4.3


14. Hurricane Chris Feat. Mouse “Coke Bottle”
LOL, I thought it was a drug for a second but it’s really wit a “bottle” and REALLY wit Mouse on tha feature; double error! DatPiff removed it but I heard it; tight shit here! Good shit from Chris and Mouse on tha beat/hook once again! My Current Rating: 4.0


15. Kevin Gates Feat. A.R. & Wissel “My City”
Wonder who had dis first; Jimmy The DJ or you? Both January releases here and tha 1st time I heard dis was in January 2010 on Jimmy’s “Gangsta Gumbo Vol. 4: The Audacity Of Dope”. Cool once again for D. Jackson on tha beat and this sounds good, especially on tha hook too! Since tha review, dat “00001” would be dedicated to my gurl Robin since A.R. said “0” 4x in a row, lol! Ahh, tha Math teacher and his “zed-oh” pronunciations!! Oh, readin’ tha review for this previously and Wissel’s part was faded out, lol! Weird timing to hear it for tha first time now… Good verse (of course) but sounds all cocky. Too bad all these things are above gettin’ tha DJs new music, smh… My Current Rating: 4.5


16. Lil’ Six “I’m Fucked Up”
Lookin’ forward ta dis!! I have a feelin’ dis gon be my top-rated new joint!! >>> VERY anticipated for tha hook and err-thang since we gettin’ “dem pillz” outta nowhere in tha beginning!! Tha beat sounds real hot too!! GLAD I predicted tha top-rated new joint here ‘cause I’m DEFINITELY right before 1:00 in tha song!! Tha 1st verse’s cool as fuck here! Lil’ Six gon be a future dude ta hit me up… hopefully! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty consistent here wit tha flow especially! My Rating: 4.8


17. Young Ready Feat. Lil’ Phat “Stand Over You”
ROFL; must be tha oldest one on here… I have a completely perspective now, sadly; couldn’t control it. Tha controller controlled my perspective. I won’t change my rating though… My Current Rating: 4.8


18. B-Raw Feat. K.Bank$, Lil’ Klapp & Young Ready “Dumb, Dumb, Duffy”
This a lil’ betta but still, almost lost tha perspective again. Even down ta dat: why iz Ready first on tha ID? No dickridin’! Didn’t realize dis was a Vybe beat fa a second; has a GR8 “vibe” fa this kinda song, lol! Still a perfect-rated song for me, regardless of anything. My Current Rating: 5.0


19. Kidd Kidd “Do It 4 Scrilla”
Hope this doesn’t spoil tha 5-star rated CD… >>> Tha beginning almost scares me… EDIT: June 25, 2009: it was added to my iTunes? Damn, didn’t think I heard it thanx to tha “Do It 4” missin’ in tha ID… I only rated a 3.6 in tha beginning? Damn, I feel much betta about tha rating now ‘cause tha hook’s pretty gutta and tha verses are good! Oh, I see why tha rating was low: tha A-Tune; boo!! Now, I think I’ll feel tha same wit tha rating; no more feedback! Wait, a 3rd verse fulla A-Tune too? Well, just tha beginning of it; should be lower on tha rating! BAD ending! Anotha decrease! My Current Rating: 2.8


20. Lil’ Boosie “I Wonder”
Sure as hell, I prolly heard this too… >>> Don’t see it anywhere and it ain’t bad for a start… Okay, tha hook’s a lil’ odd for a start but it sounds good; he sounds younger? Sounds pretty tight on tha 1st verse but my mood kinda went shitty afta dat “Scrilla” song… Tha 2nd verse’s pretty lyrical, gutta, Southern and mo mixed into a banana split fulla rhymes! Tha 3rd verse sounds gr8 too although I still think tha hook start’s a lil’ odd… My Rating: 4.2


21. Nu$$ie “Vapors”
WTF @ tha ending song… Ladies & Gentlemen: an import from tha UK iz here!! Not… This iz acceptable if they’re in jail, maybe. But, this was already released throughout Louisiana… Damn, I wasn’t even 20 and a ½, lol… There are also acceptions (dead or in jail) if tha song’s just on MySpace and exclusively on related artists (e.g., Yung Yola and K.O.; I keep pushin’ ’08 songs from them but both are in jail and tha songs are only on their MySpaces and wit their relatives/close artists)… I don’t like to even have tha “’08” perspective… There’s so many things you can’t get back: Talkin’ to Young Ready, Nu$$, my 1st college’s lifestyle and more… I might even make a Facebook group called “Nu$$ie Alive Times: November 27, 2007 – February 9, 2009.” November 27, 2007 was when my Louisiana connection was bubblin’ ta pop off (Part 2) and when I officially started carin’ less about tha people at my 1st college ‘cause I KNEW I had a future comin’ and yes, I do!! I also noticed tha 3rd verse on this was reused on Kevin Gates’s “I Be In Da Trap,” which I disapproved at first but I guess, accordin’ to A1, it’s acceptable. My Current Rating: 4.5
^ Damn, my ratings were not too exciting back in tha day (original rating of 4.1; some REAL TIGHT songs only had 4.5 on dat “Featuring Nu$$ie” CD…)


Overall: It didn’t matter how old/new tha songs were; it still was DEFINITELY a REAL HOT mixtape!! Thanx ta B-Raw on tha heads up! I had Vol. 3 before this and I did my lil’ Google search to find it! I DEFINITELY look forward ta knowin’ dat there’s Vol. 3 AND Vol. 4 already out!! Finna review those next!!

Review #582: Baby L's "My Life Is A Movie"

Reviewed on 7.23.2010 (Review #582)




Got my 5th review for today all ready, ya dig! This one right chea came out 11 months ago and I didn’t even know it ‘til I found it one day online. It was two dayz before this artist’s birthday too, so it could’ve been a gr8 birthday present. Anyway, this year, tha birthday present’ll be this review since his birthday’s next month. It’s Baby L’s “My Life Is A Movie; glad he got tha hookup on tha GR8 front/back cover!! Start Time: 4:20 PM | End Time: 5:38 PM



Quick Note: 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!

Source (Where I Got Tha CD From): http://www.datpiff.com/Baby_Ls_My_Life_Is_A_Movie.m59940.html


01. Intro
Let’s see what you gon bring on dis mixtape… >>> Soundin’ good in tha beginning here; you reppin’ dat “Houma”/985 to tha fullest! My Rating: N/A


02. “You Don’t Want It” Feat. RoyDezzy
Let’s see what you got in store wit Dezzy… >>> Good, an online instrumental? Sounds good for a start; DEFINITELY “don’t want it wit you” when it comes ta dat bullshit! Damn, a horrible Dezzy verse; this ain’t gonna help tha rating at all. You’re on tha 2nd verse here, nice and normal, and you really deliverin’ for tha hood and defendin’ yourself in tha hood too! My Rating: 2.4


03. “Dead Wrong (Freestyle)”
Let’s see how you’ll rip dis beat! >>> “Runnin’” it here; good job, my boy! You holdin’ tha hood down once again! My Rating: 3.6


04. “Owe Me Some Money” (B.G. Feat. Soulja Slim)
LOL, this was before I actually heard it; let’s see what you did on it… >>> LOL, it’s just tha original version; I guess this was just exclusive at tha time… I realized it was only Gizzle and Slim, compared to there bein’ like two otha dudes on it. My Current Rating: 4.4


05. “Wet Paint” Feat. RoyDezzy
I honestly hope Dezzy doesn’t ruin this one too… I’m thinkin’ “Ice Cream Paint Job” beat? >>> Completely different beat; it sounds like a small microphone’s quality? Pretty good; not bad… “Blowin’ dat fine kush in tha wind;” thumbs up, my boy! A T.I. sample instead on tha hook, lol. Tha 2nd verse sounds like you’re holdin’ it down in a good way; thumbs up once again! Oh, didn’t realize there was room fa a 3rd verse. Oh no, Dezzy wit tha weird voice… Not dat bad as tha last time but c’mon… I guess I can accept tha verse… My Rating: 4.0


06. “Dumb Fly”
One of tha songs I put on my radio show (thanx ta you sendin’ it to me; tha 1st dude ta send me a song for my radio show)! I wish I would’ve known about this CD last year though; lemme re-hear… >>> Good beat here; glad I showed it luv. I rememba dat hook; it sounds good on this track. You doin’ ya thang on tha 1st verse… Nice job wit tha 2nd verse too; I would “keep your name” tha way it iz too. My Current Rating: 4.3


07. “A Few Bars”
A lil’ freestyle-type joint? Lemme hear dis shit… >>> LOL, only 52 seconds? Tha beat’s pretty good for a freestyle-type joint; nice job… My Rating: 3.7


08. “Picture Perfect”
>>> Not that good of a beat but it sounds good wit you rappin’ on it… Tha hook’s pretty good fa a beat like dis too… I like tha shit in tha 2nd verse; such “hoes” when it comes ta those pussazzes! My Rating: 3.8


09. “Showtime” Feat. Dani Banga
Let’s hear dis collab… >>> Ooh, I like tha beat start here! Tha 1st verse’s pretty much a motivational verse here; you continuin’ ta do ya thang wit all these mixtapes! Glad you don’t stop ‘cause it’s ALWAYS gr8 ta have you be reviewed frequent times! Dani’s on tha 2nd verse and it’s a gurl; pretty good for a friend here, lol. I like her “So So Def like tha opposite of Stevie” line! You’re “back again” here on tha 3rd verse, keepin’ it goin’! My Rating: 4.2


10. “Let’s Get Ratchet” (Lil’ Boosie & Hurricane Chris)
>>> I thought I heard this before? EDIT: Damn, a title change confused me. This iz tha more fittin’ title but I heard it as “Going Hard Tonight” on tha “Bad Azz Hurricane” mixtape. Anyway, GR8 collab and dat hook’s DEFINITELY “harrrrrrrrrrd” as fuck!! My Current Rating: 4.6


½time: Nice job, L’s! Tha bonus songs helped you and you’re doin’ a pretty good job rappin’ too! A nice 3.9 iz tha average CD rating so far…


11. “Freestyle”
Ooh, anotha “freestyle;” let’s see… >>> Sounds more like a skit in tha beginning; cool lil’ beginning… “Get on tha track and just blaze it like a blunt;” do ya thang! Nice lil’ verse from you here! My Rating: 4.1


12. “Blast Off”
Let’s hear it! >>> Tha producer gives me anticipation… Ehh @ tha hook; I rather you do tha hook and not have an already-made hook. Tha 1st verse sounds like you’re giving… Tha 2nd verse sounds like you’re keepin’ it real when it comes ta havin’ a relationship; good shit. A “bluntful” chick described on tha 3rd verse since y’all can “smoke blunts together,” lol; good shit once again! My Rating: 4.0


13. “One Mic”
Iz this a freestyle or somethin’ else? >>> Yup, it sounds like it’s your own version of this song… Usually, I’d be completely bored wit somethin’ like dis but you have a voice dat has interest; DEFINITELY a plus here!! I like tha scene @ :52, “fightin’ fa ya life!” Sorry ‘bout “tha muthafuckin’ blunts not rollin’” @ 1:02 too. Hearin’ a “dark side” from you on tha 2nd verse here; very personal for tha hood here in your perspective! Tha 3rd verse iz pretty gutta too; you RIPPED dis shit!! I thought it went quiet @ 3:27 but you’re comin’ through here wit a “mic,” a “blunt” and a “beat.” My Rating: 4.5


14. “Ain’t I (Freestyle)” Feat. Goo
Okay, now this iz certified a “freestyle” then, lol. >>> Sounds like someone else on tha 1st verse? Who iz it? Let me know… EDIT: It says it on DatPiff’s tracklisting: Goo. You’re doin’ ya thang on tha 2nd verse here; continuous shit from you! My Rating: 4.2


15. “Supa Charged” (Max Minelli)
LOL, this would’ve been Exclusive #3 if I got this mixtape tha time it came out! Good-ass shit still right chea; very catchy beat and hook! My Current Rating: 4.4


16. “Nothin’ Like Me” Feat. Yung Marley & Goo
Iz Marley tha Marley “Don’t Hurt ‘Em” (or whateva) dude from tha 985 dat helps peeps out? >>> Pretty catchy here; I’m likin’ this as I’m anticipatin’ it! You’re on tha 1st verse (just like you were on tha catchy hook) and it’s pretty good; I like when you come on tha mic all tha time! Good shit and Marley’s on tha 2nd verse; he sounds hella cool here! Glad you fuck wit dis dude right chea! LOL, you came through on tha 2nd ½ of tha verse here outta nowhere… Y’all family to tha fullest! Goo sounds good on tha 3rd verse; DEFINITELY a plus for tha 985 hood! My Rating: 4.4


17. “Gift Of Tha Gab”
Short joint here so let’s see what’s up! >>> Tha beginning sounds cool here… You did ya thang here, quickly. I like dat hook and beat. My Rating: 3.9


18. “Where Am I”
>>> Sounds like a Pop song and I almost thought it was “Dead & Gone”. This has good content to it and you’re holdin’ it down wit your story… My Rating: 3.6


19. “Round Here”
Anotha radio song right “here,” lol! I rememba it had a long beat outro; lemme review it and see what happens… >>> Good shit; reppin’ dat “South Louisiana!” I like how you holdin’ tha hook here; true shit! Nice job wit tha 1st verse and you gave a shout out ta “Jimmy The DJ;” thumbs UP!!! Tha 2nd verse sounds cool too; definitely a plus on this joint! Oh yea, wit 1:51 left, I’m hearin’ tha remainin’ shit wit tha “shake it, drop it.” My Current Rating: 4.4


20. “Give It 2 ‘Em”
Almost done. >>> This sounds good; I like how you comin’ through on this good beat! You spittin’ dat real shit for tha undaground here on tha 1st verse, “wit your own label!” Nice job wit dis shit! My Rating: 4.2


21. “24, 23 (L’s Mix)”
DatPiff says “23, 24” but tha back says “24, 23,” lol? Let’s see this last joint. >>> Sounds like tha last joint? Now, it sounds like a Young Jeezy hook… You’re here on tha 1st verse and it sounds good… Tha rest of this shit’s good and consistent (as always)! Because I heard you say, “23, 24,” I’ll put dat as tha title and consider tha back cover an error. Oh wait, tha hook actually says, “24, 23;” lol, this iz confusin’! I’ll leave it as “24, 23” then. Anotha verse fit here… More good shit from you and tha outro was good too!! Glad “Jimmy” iz ALWAYS on your side at times! My Rating: 4.3


Overall: REAL GR8 mixtape from you, my boy!! You ALWAYS come through wit consistent shit ta listen to!! Tha 2nd ½ REALLY pulled off too!! Keep ‘em comin’, L’s!!
