Review #820: Ronny My "The Other Blues Brotha"

Reviewed on 1.21.2011 (Review #820)




This next review iz Ronny My “The Other Blues Brotha; how will it go? Start Time: 9:34 PM | End Time: 10:01 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. 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. “These Beautiful Drugs” Feat. Intrigue
ROFL @ this title; looks really anticipatin’, too, lol! >>> Ooh, acapella style! Very interestin’; should sound real nice on my radio show, regardless of tha title, lol! Was this just Intrigue? My Rating: 4.4


02. “Show Me Love”
>>> I like this vibe in tha beat as well as how you’re bringin’ shit to tha table. Tha hook sounds funny wit tha repeatin’ of tha title, lol. My Rating: 4.2


03. “You Know” Feat. Glen Swisher
LOL, Swisher style, lol! >>> Tha content iz definitely interestin’ on this decent beat—beat soundin’ betta wit y’all on it. Tha hook’s pretty smooth, too, wit how it sounds wit tha title. Good collaboration; y’all doin’ a nice job together. Glen was on tha 1st verse and you did ya thang on tha 2nd verse. My Rating: 4.1


04. “Scar’d Me” Feat. TreeHead
>>> Thought tha title was “scared” somethin’, lol. This ain’t too bad; tha beat’s, just, decent fa me. A decent collaboration, too; not much ta say… My Rating: 3.6


05. “Louis Armstrong”
>>> Sounds a lil’ betta; sounds like you improved from your last CD. Tha rappin’ iz consistent and tha beat ain’t too bad, either. My Rating: 3.8


½time: You have a 4.0-rated CD, so far; that’s good fa tha shit you makin’!


06. “Just Another Tuesday” Feat. Nick Nitro & TreeHead
>>> Mainly ‘cause of tha title, this gives me a catchier perspective when thinkin’ of how tha song gon sound like. Tha lyrics are interestin’ ta listen to… Tha hook sounds somewhat-catchy, too. Good job on all tha verses; y’all did a good job. My Rating: 4.0


07. “If I Can Go Back”
>>> Just a decent song wit good content; I’m actually likin’ this smooth beat. My Rating: 3.8


08. “Am Who I Am”
>>> This sounds good/above average, too. I’m likin’ tha East Coast-soundin’ production as well as your vibe, too. My Rating: 3.9


09. “Real 4rm Da Start” Feat. LG & Luke St. John
>>> Sounds like tha last song wit tha production; feelin’ it, once again. You did a nice job on tha 1st verse and tha hook, of course, sounds “real”, ya dig, lol? I like tha collaboration, too; everyone doin’ a consistent job when it comes ta dis Rap shit! My Rating: 4.2


10. “Lil’ Boy Lost” Feat. Meagan Simone
>>> Tha lady on this song ain’t too bad and tha story’s pretty interestin’. For a song, it’s only aight fa me. Hearin’ tha hook for a second time and tha “pick on me” shit’s startin’ ta give me interest. You know I was hated and picked on back in tha day so this has some more interest fa me. My Rating: 3.7


11. “Dope. Cypher” (IL Duce, Gage, Luke St. John, A.R., 2feet, LG & Ronny My)
Whoa, what’s this bonus? >>> Damn, 9:40!! IL Duce iz startin’ dis off and it’s A+ at its finest!!! I feel dat this easily gon be tha best one on here!! I believe this iz tha same Gage I knew from a DatPiff CD I checked out, known as Young Gage? Sounds good; very consistent!! BTW, this iz a 1st: since when iz there a period in tha title? Thumbs up on tha different shit ta make it seem lucky. Next up, Luke St. John, doin’ a real nice job, too! So much shit you could quote and enjoy here!! Let’s hear what Mr. Problem Child Entertainment dude A.R. has ta offer… Likin’ what he bringin’, too! You know I fuck wit him, ya dig? A.R., what up? You know what it iz! 2feet, a.k.a. Two Feet, iz up next; didn’t realize they were tha same people. Wit what 2feet’s offerin’, it sounds like some good, non-Louisiana-type shit (yea, I know he from Louisiana); good shit! LG’s next, keepin’ it goin’, here! There’s over four minutes left, lol! Iz it gonna be a long outro at tha end or somethin’? Here you come, almost soundin’ like an outro at first, lol. Pretty catchy; nothin’ beat tha 1st three dudes, though! LOL, good ending ta your verse as there’s a lil’ less than two minutes left. Tha beat outro’s kinda long fa an ending but whateva… My Rating: 4.8


Overall: This was definitely somethin’ nice from you, Ron! Good job, especially tha surprise at tha end! It would be cool if I got that last bonus song onto my radio show; that would be a great feelin’! Keep doin’ you…

01. “Ease Da Pain (Intro)”
>>> Gay start for tha sample. At least your rappin’ iz nice, here. My Rating: 3.8


02. “Ghetto Hero” Feat. B Streezy
>>> Don’t like tha vocals in this hook but tha beat sounds interestin’ fa somethin’ you can rap on. You’re holdin’ down tha rappin’ and representin’ on dis, too. My Rating: 3.9


03. “Father Forgive Me” Feat. Mr. Marcelo & Cutta
>>> Although not my kinda title, I really like tha non-English chantin’ in this; non-English chantin’ iz somethin’ that has always interested me! Tha verses sound good; good, interestin’ collaboration, too. Neva heard Cutta before; he sounds like he blends in good wit you and Marcelo. My Rating: 4.3


04. “Da Streets Made Me” Feat. Soulja Slim
Always good ta have Soulja Slim here and there on various CDs! >>> Sounds good (as always); catchy hook fa “da streets”! “September tha 19th, 1983…;” props on your birthday; glad I know! Tight content, too; great song, overall! My Rating: 4.3


05. “Mo Money, No Problems”
>>> Thought I heard this before; don’t rememba… Catchy song, hook, and how you come through wit tha tightness! My Rating: 4.2


06. “I’m A Gangster” Feat. Eldorado Red
“Gangter”? >>> I guess it’s an error on tha back cover ‘cause my iTunes says, “gangster”. Anyway, this sounds like anotha anthem you’re bringin’ to tha streetz; nice and consistent you are! Thumbs up fa bringin’ this Eldorado Red dude on tha feature! He said, “Alabama to Calliope;” iz he from “Alabama”? Sounds pretty tight for a collab! My Rating: 4.2


07. “My Balls And My Word” Feat. Roca B
>>> Definitely an anthem here! Feelin’ how tha hook sounds and tha true shit you got on lock; good shit/combo, once again!! Nothin’ but tightness, here, as well as tha consistent way you keep this street shit alive!! My Rating: 4.4


08. “I Don’t Give A Fuck” Feat. Mr. Marcelo
>>> Anticipatin’ beat start here… Feelin’ tha attitude; who can’t like dis? Keepin’ thangz goin’ to tha fullest!! Again, this anotha tight collab! My Rating: 4.3


09. “Hoodstar” Feat. Cutta & Mr. Marcelo
LOL, I remember you had a CD called “Hoodstar” in 2009; surprised I didn’t see this anywhere (as far as me knowin’). >>> Sounds like anotha anthem; keepin’ consistent music pumpin’!! Such a great collaboration! Y’all can collaborate for tha rest of tha songs; it’ll still sound tight as hell! My Rating: 4.4


½time: This iz a nice mixtape you got, Var! So far, you’re lookin’ at a 4.2; how will you continue ta do?


10. “I’m Strapped” Feat. Mr. Harvey
>>> Why does it sound like Juelz Santana’s “aye” shit in tha beginning? Regardless, a definite anthem to tha fullest!! This beat’s real nice ta help you wit tha rappin’ and shit; thumbs up! I didn’t realize Mr. Harvey blended in wit dis, lol. My Rating: 4.5


11. “Welcome To New Orleans” Feat. Ceto
I think I played one of these new songs on my radio show durin’ my boy Jimmy The DJ’s edition; this might’ve been tha one. >>> Oh naw, it was “Superish”; anotha dude had this title but this iz definitely on a tighter level! Tha beat’s really hot as far as a Rap genre! Your rappin’ iz consistent as a ma’fucka! Good-ass shit here, my boy! Gotta have dat “kush,” too, my boy!! Ceto doin’ a nice job helpin’ you out, too! What more could you want wit dis? It has everything ta satisfy a Rap luva! My Rating: 4.6


12. “I Gotta Make It”
>>> Feelin’ this! You got dat good-ass “smoke”-type shit you rappin’ ‘bout as well as for tha streetz! You always got my support, bruh! My Rating: 4.4


13. “Maintaining” Feat. Ki’s
LOL, iz that featured artist, like, keys, lol? This should definitely be interestin’!! >>> I like how this sounds, too! I think I’m likin’ it betta than tha last song; real consistent, at tha moment!! Must be Ki’s on tha 1st verse; anotha good discovery from you, Var! You’re doin’ a nice job wit holdin’ dis track down, too! It’s all about survivin’ a.k.a. “maintainin’”! My Rating: 4.5


14. “Front Door Swangin’” Feat. Maceo & Ray Vicks
LOL, haven’t heard Maceo on anything in tha longest time. You even brought Ray on tha track, too; let’s hear dis! >>> This iz some hot shit! Too bad it seemed like Maceo fell outta tha spotlight, it seemed like. I thought he was pretty active from ’05 – ’06. Then, I think I heard a mixtape of his in ’08 that I didn’t hear much noise about. Now, it’s still a quiet mainstream area fa him. But, he sounds real nice on dis joint right chea! Once again, I’m glad you’re doin’ ya thang, Var; glad ta have you recruit people on your mixtape as well as these bangaz!! “More stripes than a zebra;” you know what it iz! Ray iz always decent fa me; he keeps tha mood alive wit his trap shit, though! My Rating: 4.6


15. “Superish” Feat. Mr. Marcelo & Ceto
Here it iz, lol. Lemme review it. >>> No matter what’s said, it sounds good! I like how you say tha title and have it echo; sounds good! All about “feelin’” good to tha fullest! Again, good job on havin’ tha features, too; err-body doin’ they thang fa these 504 streetz!! My Current Rating: 4.3


16. “I’m On It” Feat. Mr. Marcelo & Lil’ Cali
If Lil’ Cali’s on it, do I know it? >>> Yea, this sounds familiar! Definitely a hot-ass song!! I guess this iz a new remix wit Lil’ Cali on it ‘cause it was just you and Celo on tha 1st version. Sounds pretty nice wit Cali on this; good combo, once again! My Rating: 4.8


17. “My Hood (Remix)” Feat. B.G., Mannie Fresh & Gar
LOL… >>> And, all tha others on tha feature, too: Mannie Fresh & Gar, lol. LOL, just mainly a 1st verse from you. Tha rest iz what it iz although this song got boring ta me after I heard it for a while. My Rating: 4.0


18. “Rite Now”
>>> Sounds anticipatin’ wit tha start; let’s get it! Tha hook’s a lil’ weird on tha vocals but again, tha lyrics are pretty good on it. I hear someone’s beat tag within this song (as well as a few others on here); not sure who it iz. Pretty-good-soundin’ song “rite” here, lol. My Rating: 4.1


19. “Cutta Solo” (Cutta)
Must be Cutta’s on song; let’s hear it! >>> Tha beat sounds good ta hold him down. Not likin’ tha “swag/hoe” combo that happens throughout tha hook; this ain’t too bad… My Rating: 3.6


Overall: Nice job, Var; you’re always very consistent wit it! Always stay on your grind!!

01. Intro
>>> Bring tha anticipation! My Rating: N/A


02. “New Sexy”
>>> I don’t like tha Kanye West-soundin’ hook/voice. As far as how you’re comin’ through wit tha rhymes, it’s pretty much a catchy song. My Rating: 3.6


03. “Da Champ”
>>> You sound catchy on dis one; feelin’ tha catchiness. My Rating: 4.1


04. “Where Day Do Dat @”
It’s really “dey” but I’ll let it slide here. >>> LOL @ tha short length. Heard a song theme wit this title so many times; not sure what ta say but this iz good fa what it iz. My Rating: 4.2



05. “Ziplock Bag It Up!”
Any title wit a “Z”, “Q”, or sometimes an “X” (or any strange, uncommon letter) gives me anticipation, regardless! >>> Sounds more catchy than before; gotta luv dis kinda shit!! Really luvin’ what you got goin’ on here as far as tha content; crazy shit! My Rating: 4.5


06. “Shawty Is A 20” Feat. Mannie Fresh
>>> Sounded like “Whatever You Like”, at first, so I kinda got scared. But, I hear some catchiness comin’ outta this so there’s a plus. Tha hook sounds pretty catchy even though you can expect what it’s about wit tha title. Even Mannie sounds catchy on this; good shit. My Rating: 4.0


07. “Da Edge”
>>> Likin’ how this sounds even though I dislike sampled voices in beats. Catchy song, doin’ a nice job wit how you bringin’ shit to tha table! My Rating: 4.2


08. Words From Stevie Drumma
>>> Glad you “produced” most of tha shit on here plus Mannie Fresh on two beats! You’re a talented dude, Stevie, ya dig? My Rating: N/A


09. “Kim Kardashian” Feat. Lil’ Flip
>>> Even though jammin’, it doesn’t sound like tha kinda song I’d like-like. Nothin’ really special ‘bout dis collab, too. My Rating: 3.5


10. “Jocked Out”
>>> At least this sounds catchy; good shit/hook! Tha hook iz really tha most catchiest thing about this song; tha verses are aight fa me… My Rating: 3.9


½time: A 4.0-rated CD, so far; how well will you continue ta do? Keep tha consistency comin’, Stevie!


11. “Swag Song”
No… Not a title like dis! >>> Catchy hook but I ain’t gonna take dis too serious… My Rating: 3.0


12. “In Da Club (My Diddy Bop)”
>>> Damn, not anotha one! I can’t tell if I like dis betta; I think tha last song was betta. My Rating: 2.8


13. “She Somethin’ Nice”
>>> A lil’ betta, here… Tha beat sounds consistent… Nothin’ much ta say except that it’s a pretty-catchy song. My Rating: 3.8


14. “Club Joint”
>>> I like how dis sounds! Oh no, sounds kinda gay on tha 1st verse wit tha dancin’ shit. Anyway, I still feel aight about dis “joint”. My Rating: 3.3


15. “Hard In Da Paint!”
Exclamation point, lol! >>> Catchy song; like tha hook and all tha “hard in tha paint” shit! You got dat catchy voice fa some of dis shit, Stevie, ya dig? My Rating: 4.3


16. “Pump My Fist” Feat. Lil’ Flip
>>> Tha hook iz pretty catchy; good shit, Stevie! Again, Flip ain’t too special wit how he comin’ through on this; you might have ta look fa anotha collaborator! He even has anotha verse? My Rating: 3.7


17. “Sit Still” Feat. Dizzy a.k.a. Raw D.I.
ROFL, I saw “feat. Dizzy” before I started this CD and didn’t realize it was this song!! A classic song that I originally rated a 5.0; go, Dizzy!! Great, classic combination between tha two of y’all!! “Puffin’ on tha ‘gar!” My Current Rating: 5.0



18. “Overrate Me!”
>>> “On a Mannie Fresh beat”? Good combo; you sound pretty catchy on dis. Tha song has a good topic and how you comin’ through wit your catchiness; good combo once again! My Rating: 4.2


19. “Move It Like A Gypsy” Feat. The Show
>>> Almost scary at first but it’s catchy; thought I might’ve heard dis before? Has ta be ‘cause The Show (unsourced) iz on tha feature! Not sure but this iz pretty nice. My Rating: 3.7


20. Outro
>>> Good for a short outro. My Rating: N/A


Overall: This was a pretty good mixtape from you, Drumma. Keep puttin’ out dat heat and stay on ya grind!

Review #817: Hollidae a.k.a. Confusion "A New Year's Breed"

Reviewed on 1.21.2011 (Review #817)




This next review I believe iz a 2009 CD, accordin’ ta DatPiff. New Orleans artist Hollidae a.k.a. Confusion “A New Year’s Breed; 310 Hurricane Records on this one. Start Time: 11:25 AM | End Time: 11:57 AM



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. 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/EVIL_TUNES_HOLLIDAE_AKA_CONFUSION_New_Years_Breed.m34441.html


01. Intro
>>> Nice “ward” representations, here, in tha beginning! I thought this would be random, boring music (since I neva heard of you before), but it’s soundin’ pretty catchy wit this intro startin’ off! I won’t consider this an actual song and just an intro. My Rating: N/A


02. “Get At U”
>>> Maybe it won’t be my kinda shit; 5:00 on tha length? I like how you’re rappin’ but this ain’t really my kinda shit. My Rating: 3.4


03. “All In My Biz”
>>> Even though tha length’s still a lil’ long, it sounds like a good intro. Okay, this iz betta! Tha fast rappin’ from tha last song iz here and tha sound iz betta; good topic! My Rating: 3.8


04. “I’ma Get Me”
>>> Sounds like a tight beat start! Tha hook’s pretty catchy; definitely on point here! Your rappin’ iz nice; gotta luv tha consistency!! My Rating: 4.3


05. “Let’s Go”
>>> Sounds like a Bounce rhythm; hot shit! What tight rappin’; nice and consistent! My Rating: 4.4


06. Skit
>>> LOL, an instant skit! You know I luv Urban people’s dialect!! Usually, I’d expect a lot of “bruh”s but there were a lot of “dawg”s in this one; good shit! My Rating: N/A


07. “Please”
>>> No features listed? I like tha catchiness here! Definitely a hot hook; “please,” lol!! Catchiness tha whole way through!! My Rating: 4.3


08. “New Year’s Breed”
I believe an apostrophe iz in “year’s”. >>> Ooh, this sounds like some old, Early ‘00s Louisiana-type shit!! Definitely good shit; reminds me of Lil’ Witness a lil’!! What a crazy-ass song!!! My Rating: 4.8


09. “Two Masters”
>>> LOL, interestin’ title. I like how you sound in tha intro wit dis title; nice and random! This sounds like more hot music! I really like how you deliverin’ these rhymes and lyrics! It’s really buildin’ up toward tha end of tha 1st verse and in tha hook wit your voice!! My Rating: 4.5


10. Skit
Ooh, anotha skit! >>> Eddie Bo/310 Hurricane Records in tha buildin’; thumbs up! LOL @ tha hissin’ in tha background of tha talkin’! I wonder how y’all get so many voiceovers? Was it hard ta get ‘em? Good skit. My Rating: N/A


11. “Catch Me”
>>> A short song; let’s see how it sounds… Tha rappin’ sounds like non-Southern music in this one. You still sound like you’re deliverin’ some catchy shit, though. Interestin’… My Rating: 4.0


½time: A 4.2-rated CD; how far up or down will it continue ta go?


12. “Lala Lala”
>>> As always, not crazy about beats wit high-pitched versions of samples and shit—make dat just samples. Your rappin’ iz still pretty good but overall, this ain’t nothin’ really special fa me… My Rating: 2.9


13. “Murderer”
>>> Whoa, we’re back to tha tightness again!! Sounds like some older Louisiana shit; definite plus!! Really feelin’ tha rappin’, here, and tha consistency you bringin’ wit all tha rhymes!! My Rating: 4.6


14. “In The Pressence”
>>> I’m likin’ tha beat once again! Glad you know what you want as far as good production behind you! Tha rappin’ iz great, too; keepin’ tha hotness comin’ at all times!! Tha hook’s official, too; you know what ta rap about and keep tha streetz happy! My Rating: 4.5


15. “Run”
>>> Keepin’ tha anticipatin’ music comin’ along! LOL @ this shit; tha “run” shit in tha hook sounds catchy as hell! Ooh, here comes tha rappin’ from you, makin’ tha track sound much betta!! My Rating: 4.7


16. “Crash Dummies”
Feelin’ these titles you bringin’ onta tha mixtape here! >>> I like your intro; thumbs up to tha dialect again!! Real consistent wit tha rappin’; gotta luv it!! Tha hook’s tha truth, too! Glad this mixtape’s really gettin’ betta!! My Rating: 4.4


17. “Take U Away”
>>> Oh no, a long song… Actually, sounds pretty tight wit how you comin’ through on tha hook; definite street shit!! Tha production iz definitely catchy and how you comin’ through on this shit iz a plus; nothin’ but consistent, street shit from you!! My Rating: 4.4


18. “Mercy On Me”
>>> Sounds like tha consistency just died. Tha rappin’ iz nice, though; I’ll give dat a plus. Tha hook’s pretty interestin’ wit this content, too. Tha beat’s boring; that’s all. My Rating: 3.6


19. “Full Of That Liquor”
Forgot a space between “ThatLiquor”, lol? >>> Sounds like y’all wanna do some funny-soundin’ music, here, lol. This iz interestin’ but what’s wit tha near-six-minute length? My Rating: 4.2


20. Skit
>>> Ooh, anotha one, lol. It sounds like a continuation from tha previous one wit havin’ tha CDs. Not bad for a skit… My Rating: N/A


21. “Get Me”
>>> That beat sound iz pretty catchy in tha beginning! Good shit throughout this song; feelin’ tha “thief through tha night” part in tha hook! Thumbs up fa makin’ dis shit catchy as hell, once again! My Rating: 4.3


22. Outro
>>> LOL, almost sounded like someone said my name in tha beginning, lol. Ooh, tha dialect again!! Y’all a beast wit tha “dawg” shit and all tha dialect!! My Rating: N/A


Overall: I was definitely feelin’ dis shit right chea!! You really know how ta rap and do tha damn thang on what kinda jointz you like to rap on, ya dig? Keep up tha great work!!

01. “At Last”
>>> Tha beat ain’t too bad that you chose. Sounds like you doin’ a nice, catchy job wit tha rappin’! Pretty consistent; 18 bangaz on this CD ta keep it goin’! My Rating: 4.3


02. Skit
>>> Agreed on why so many rap and shit. My Rating: N/A


03. “Guess Who”
>>> A Stevie Drumma beat? Thought it would be one of those jacked beats but this iz good—good ear fa beats! Sounds like you’re a lil’ on tha grimy side here, lol. Go, Show, go! My Rating: 4.4


04. “Black & Red”
>>> LOL, tha title says it all wit tha beat! You doin’ ya thang on this beat; definitely catchy! My Rating: 4.1


05. “Closer To My Dreams”
>>> I don’t get why everyone’s usin’ this beat all of a sudden. It’s like, ’04 was so long ago; we’re in ’10 (wit this mixtape)! Regardless of tha distraction, tha consistent rappin’ iz good. Not likin’ how tha lady sounded on tha hook; didn’t even sound like Goapele in tha Early ‘00s. My Rating: 3.7


06. Skit 2
>>> Thanx for tha skit again. My Rating: N/A


07. “I’ll Be Waiting”
>>> I like tha pace on this; sounds pretty catchy! Oh, of course, it’s Stevie Drumma on tha beat! Very catchy and tha rappin’ iz on ‘n’ poppin’! My Rating: 4.4


08. “Tell Me How U Feel” Feat. Famous Stranger
>>> Anotha Stevie Drumma production! This iz anotha catchy song; good shit you spittin’, Show! You keep it goin’ to tha fullest!! My Rating: 4.3


09. Show Drop
>>> Introducin’ a 17-year-old? Must be anticipatin’… maybe? My Rating: N/A


½time: A 4.2-rated Show mixtape; definitely consistent and on a betta tip!


10. “Walk In The Park” Feat. Cypher
>>> I hope I spelled his name right. I’ll check tha blog that I found this off of to make sure. This dude sounds pretty consistent; nice shit! However, hope he true for a 17-year-old. Damn, I just checked tha blog and this ain’t there; didn’t see his name. This iz a pretty-good collaboration; nothin’ but tightness! My Rating: 4.5


11. “Miss Me (Freestyle)”
>>> What’s up wit tha gay-ass hook? I thought you’re smart enough ta not have someone suckin’ dick to appear on your mixtape. BTW, for those that don’t know, I consider someone suckin’ dick equivalent to someone still usin’ A-Tune at this time! Luckily, tha gay shit didn’t appear again, so that’s a plus. You did a good job rappin’, though! My Rating: 2.9


12. “Free Mason (Freestyle)”
>>> Sounds much betta. See, now that there’s no gayness, tha rating’ll be normal again! Really consistent on this beat; good job! My Rating: 4.4


13. “Hard In The Paint”
>>> No “freestyle” in tha title? :confused Still sounds good, regardless; nice job. My Rating: 3.9


14. “Real Nigga Swag”
>>> SMH; I’ll skim through this! Prolly betta than anybody else could rap on it but way too silly for me/not my style! My Rating: 2.6


15. Show Drop
>>> Maybe you can do a drop fa my radio show one day. My Rating: N/A


16. “Love The Way U Lie”
>>> I think you should put tha “freestyle” in tha titles that have tha same titles although tha length iz longer so it’s not actually a freestyle. Even though a Pop perspective, this ain’t bad. SMH @ tha hook; what tha hell? My Rating: 3.1


17. “Never Give In”
>>> Even though this beat ain’t too bad, I don’t get tha need ta have a gay-soundin’ voice-sample in tha beat. Tha rappin’ ain’t too bad, either. Some of tha shit on here was betta, though! My Rating: 3.4


18. “This Game”
>>> What’s up wit tha long beat intro? At least it was not bad… Kinda decent; I don’t know what ta say… I’m actually likin’ how tha hook sounds wit tha female, too. My Rating: 3.7


Overall: Kinda slippery toward tha end but at least there were pluses, frequently.
