Review #1,070: Savage a.k.a. Sav Rothstein "No Rest, No Sleep 2"

Reviewed on 8.26.2011 (Review #1,070)






Right about now, I got a review fa my big dawg, Savage! Now, yesterday, I reviewed tha new Back 2 Business mixtape dat DJ Smallz hosted, from G-Lane, and it marked two years since I reviewed G-Lane Vol. 1. Now, today, I’m reviewin’ No Rest, No Sleep 2, and ironically, it’s an exact year since I reviewed No Rest, No Sleep (tha 1st one), lol! You know me, I luv repeatin’ moments on tha same day! Tryna buy a $20 scratch-off on Level’s birthday, in honor of my $200 found winner back in ‘07, but we may get a hurricane? WTF? Anyway, here goes my review for Savage a.k.a. Sav Rothstein No Rest, No Sleep 2; definitely lookin’ forward, 440 reviewz later, lol!!!!! Start Time: 1:28 PM | End Time: 2:52 PM


Disclaimer: I rate each song from 1.0 – 5.0; each rating iz my own opinion! I only please myself wit my ratings! I don’t care how lyrical you are, as long as it’s jammin’ enough for me to like it! I look for beats, then vocals, and then lyrics. To determine my favorites, I will differ tha 4.0 ratings. If a song gets at least a 4.0 rating from me, I already love it. 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. Intro
I feel very anticipated fa this; you wanna have a baby on August 26, Sav, lol? >>> Definitely agree wit tha “last time, a lot of…” happened; I’m glad I grew up since then! Age 23 kicks age 22, 21 & 20’s muthafuckin’ asses!!! Now, people pay me to do things, I don’t fuck wit fake people, I don’t give a fuck ‘bout most people, I can get to pubs/clubs, and I have a car! Looks like a lot of fucked-up-type shit happened in your hood since tha 1st No Rest, No Sleep? Dat sux… My Rating: N/A


02. “Ode To The Hustle”
Yes, an “ode”! Let’s get it, Sav!! >>> Only 2:01 on tha length; let’s see how quick this’ll go… Feelin’ tha tight-ass beat you’re bringin’ to tha table, here, as well as how you’re deliverin’ this official shit (fuck tha word ‘real’; it’s all about ‘official’)! “Saw me on tha cable;” which channel(s) you were on after BET in 2005? Or, was it just that? Either way, good-ass shit, here; you really know how ta handle shit fa err-body listenin’, ya feel me? My Rating: 4.5


03. “I Ain’t Frontin’ Shit” Feat. C-Loc
Whoa @ tha attitude, already!!! Gotta luv it!! Just like my gurl Alexia says: “Luv it!! He iz so good!” You know I’m lookin’ forward ta hearin’ this kinda “shit,” lol! >>> Sounds like a jam wit tha beginning beat; you definitely have these beats on lock at all times!! Ooh, this sounds like a club song wit tha vibe and how you “ain’t frontin’ shit,” all day, lol! C-Loc’s startin’ off tha 1st verse wit some good “shit;” it’s all about livin’ dat everyday life of bein’ tha “shit,” ya dig? Yes, some attitude in your voice, Sav, as you’re handlin’ tha 2nd verse in a great way!! Good job wit how you “ain’t frontin’ shit” on tha 2nd verse, just kickin’ buku, buku ass, lol! Now, time fa hungry Loc ta hop onto tha 3rd verse, as he’s comin’ through wit dat hood “shit” dat people gotta feel! Up, you’re hungry, too, ta where you had ta hop onto tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse, Sav! LOL, “where’s yo pajamas at? It’s time fa bedtime;” you said it!! Dem pussazzez finna go ta sleep! My Rating: 4.7


04. “I’m Serious”
That’s what you are and that’s why you get far, ya dig? >>> Sounds a lil’ faster for tha start; lookin’ forward… Sounds like a remake beat but you know how ta make it good and interestin’, 2011 style! I like tha shit you’re spittin’ in tha 1st verse; it’s tha “serious” shit you want, which I’m sure you get, easily! Ooh, you’re singin’ tha hook!! I’m sure tha gurls get goosebumps hearin’ this shit; definitely feelin’ tha Summer, laidback, but fast vibe! Interestin’ shit goin’ on in tha 2nd verse, too; seems like you always fill tha plate for my radio show, Sav! I tag you in, like, every show ‘cause there’s at least one song you produced, or were featured on, everytime I do a show; that’s how much you’re on ya grind! Tha 3rd verse iz pretty nice, too; “eatin’ me a sandwich,” lol! Almost sounds like tha word, “savage,” lol! My Rating: 4.5


05. DJ Buff Yo Skuff Skit (Free T Mck)
LOL, no M/F (muthafuckin’) in tha ID? Wit 2:29 on tha length, I know this gon be some entertainment… some jail entertainment? I think he was around when this CD was in tha process of recordin’? Let’s see. >>> Tha 3Deep First 6 Months dayz, it feels like! WDICK4U, too, lol! ROFL @ tha “you one ugly muthafucka” when it comes to tha “only comes at night” shit; funny job, here. My Rating: N/A


06. “Beatin’ Up” Feat. Level & Lil’ Boosie
Ooh, this song I played on my gurl Alexia’s birthday radio show; had ta show her luv wit a song like this, lol! Ugh, all those damn boyfriends, lol!! Already reviewed this in tha past, but you know this iz catchy, between tha Boosie sample on tha hook, and tha shit you be on durin’ tha 1st verse, Sav! Level’s entertainin’, too. LOL, in tha show’s video, I said, “Alexia, I dunno if you can handle what he sayin’,” lol; crazy shit! Also, your flow iz smooth like butta for these ladies on tha 3rd verse, too; err-body must luv this, lol!! My Current Rating: 4.6


07. “I’m The Shit”
Duh!!!!! >>> Tight beat start; lol @ tha “you smell somethin’” part! LOL, double meanin’ fa tha title, since you have every positive of bein’ “tha shit,” ya heard me?! Tha hook sounds pretty catchy, of course; can’t deny “shit” like this, lol! Tha 2nd verse sounds catchy wit your “shit,” too, lol! Tha 3rd verse sounds tight wit all tha things you’re listin’, includin’ tha “huh bruh” ad-lib, at times, ya dig? My Rating: 4.4


08. “Kush & Lean” Feat. Bro-Bro
This iz definitely more like it, even though every single song on here has been hella tight, so far! Everytime I’m in an area wit “kush” in it (weed, etc.), I feel like it’s an automatic safe zone! Plus, it’s a transition from all tha bullshit out there! >>> Ooh, nerve-calmin’ hook, here, lol! Real nice job wit tha beat and how you’re singin’, drug style, lol! Glad you got a “bad bitch” ta “roll [your] dank up,” Sav; perfect mood, even for fuckin’, lol! Bro-Bro sounds good on tha 2nd verse, too, especially wit how much shit he’s on, lol! Guess you fuck wit Bro-Bro tough, Sav, ta have him on your CD! You’re on tha 3rd verse, as well, comin’ through wit your llllllllleeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeddddddddd-ass, lol! My Rating: 4.5


09. Ace & Keisha
What do we got, here? >>> LOL @ tha last second of tha “Kush & Lean” and 1st second of this; didn’t sound like it was separated correctly? Sounds like some interestin’, trap-type shit goin’ on, here, lol. My Rating: N/A


10. “Mainline”
What’s in tha bank fa this one, Sav? >>> Sounds like some of dat good, quality-type music fa tha undaground, here, based off tha beginning beat… Sounds like you deliverin’ a nice song fa tha ladies, here; good vibe, as you always have some Summer music in tha Summer, Sav! Sounds like tha hook’s pretty serious, when it comes ta not havin’ a bad change of pace! It’s all about keepin’ tha one you wit, and hoping they feel tha same way, too! Nice job wit tha 2nd verse, too, as you’re continuin’ on wit dis shit, includin’ tha “huh bruh” ad-lib, too. Tha 3rd verse iz also pretty-good, too; good shit, Sav. My Rating: 4.0


½time: You holdin’ it down, Sav, at all times!! Currently, you have a 4.5 for tha CD rating!!!!! You always seem ta put tha new music out there in an interestin’ way, and I’m glad you don’t stop!!


11. “Life Of A Gangsta” Feat. Kevin Gates & Nu$$ie
A lil’ added 12 seconds? Sounds good; you already know I know this one. On accident, I forgot to play it on my 2nd annual Nu$$ie tribute show on 2.12.2011, but I’ll play it on tha 3rd annual one! Great job wit tha collaboration and holdin’ it down fa tha gangstaz at every chance you get, Sav!! Everyone must bow-down ta that hook; perfect way of capturin’ attention wit a special voice! My Current Rating: 4.7


12. “Tryna Change”
Let’s hear what you gon do wit this one… >>> Anotha intro? Sounds pretty cool, hustlin’ style! Nice job wit it bein’ 17 seconds; let’s now see how this track gon turn out… I hear a nice, Southern vibe in tha beat; good shit, Sav! Also, tha hook’s pretty smooth wit your kick-ass singin’, as well as your kick-ass content of tha drugs! Damn, that’s a lotta shit you be on, when it comes ta sellin’ shit; hustlin’-ass Savage doin’ tha damn thang on tha 1st verse! LOL, iz it a mirage? Quikkdraw on tha 2nd verse? Neva mind, that’s you, I believe; sounds pretty focused, though. See, someone like you can create a mirage in this hot CD, Sav, lol! I thought Quikkdraw was also on this ‘cause where this link came from, didn’t source tha features on “Life Of A Gangsta”. But yea, keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse, wishin’ you could “roll [someone] up a blunt;” that’s pure dedication, right there! My Rating: 4.2


13. “2010 Hi Life” Feat. Max Minelli
A “2010” theme title wit Max? Let’s see how good we got, here! >>> Whoa @ tha intro; really feelin’ your “high”-type hook start! You definitely be handlin’ these laidback/smooth anthems! Oh no, now, it’s ‘fuck my mainline,’ when it comes to tha content on tha 1st verse, Sav? Pretty rough; glad I’m solo ‘cause I neva stop doin’ what I be doin’! Damn, even “poppin’ tab afta tab;” jiggalatin’ monsta, Sav, in a depressed way! Sounds like a lotta rough shit Max be spittin’ on tha 2nd verse; sometimes, I may say dat I don’t wanna hear all tha shit dat be goin’ on, but at least, I can’t picture it. What happened on tha last second, lol? My Rating: 4.6


14. “Gettin’ Dough” Feat. Young Ready
LOL, this song made it!! Startin’ ta luv it, especially since it came on while I was drivin’, as well as gettin’ lost on a trail on a mountain, lol! Talk about those bein’ non-“dough” times, lol! But yea, as I said in tha Young Ready review, you really holdin’ down tha hook down, Sav, as well as Ready doin’ his thang wit all tha drugs he slang, and great shit he be rappin’ about! Even comin’ through wit a verse, too, Sav; that’s how hungry you are, Sav! Also, this time, a space at 1:46 when you start your verse? I don’t get how there’s random things happenin’ throughout tha ends of songs and sometimes, in tha mist of tha songs… Damn, it did dat space, again, at 3:28… My Current Rating: 4.8


15. “My City 2” Feat. Ree-Up, Banga, Lil’ Bubba & Head Da YG
Looks like a bunch of Young Guerillaz on tha feature, this time, lol! Didn’t think there’d be a sequel to “My City”, so I’m lookin’ forward ta hearin’ what gon be tha 2K11 version! >>> R.I.P. Sheen~Marie; one of tha only BR murders I heard about this year! She was beaten and burned ta death! But as far as this version, I like tha news story in tha beginning, as well as tha cool-soundin’ hook and beat you got, here! Really like tha shit you bringin’ to tha 1st verse; I’m sure most people in your “city” can relate ta this shit, which luckily, I can’t. First time I’m hearin’ this Ree-Up dude on tha 1st ½ of tha 2nd verse, and he sounds like a Young Ready brother, lol? ROFL @ his anger; glad he’s got a lot! Must be Banga on tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse? Feelin’ tha shit he bringin’ to tha table; must be a Young Ready cousin, or ___-in-law person, lol? Next up, Lil’ Bubba on tha 1st ½ of tha 3rd verse, comin’ through wit some witnessed-type shit, which sounds pretty rough/tight! Tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse iz Lil’ Head, comin’ through wit lots of shit dat I prolly neva see, lol (maybe, once in a blue moon each year); good job, though. This iz a different twist from tha original; I like this a lil’ betta, but tha original’s classic, still! My Rating: 4.7


16. “Mama Told Me” Feat. Quikkdraw & Tre Virdure
ROFL, tha mirage turned into a real feature, lol! I thought I was just joking on “Tryna Change”, but I guess my wish came true, just now, lol! This looks like it’ll be an interestin’-type of real/struggle song? Lemme see… >>> Good beat, a lil’ different on tha hook from you, Sav; good job wit this kinda shit (or was dat Tre? LOL, you both sing)… Tha 1st verse was pretty good from you; good job, Sav, wit holdin’ down how people be. Tha 2nd verse iz you (so dat must be Tre on tha hook); lots of info you know! I have ta admit, you’re one of tha best people in your 20s out there! Quikkdraw’s on tha 3rd verse, and now, I can tell tha difference in tha voice, a lil’, lol; good job wit this serious shit! Speakin’ of which, still prayin’ fa Quikkdraw’s “mama;” regardless of tha current results, I just keep her in my prayers, currently! My Rating: 4.1


17. “Smooth Getaway 2”
Ooh, a follow-up wit Alexia’s birthday on tha length! Will there be a singer/tha same singer as tha previous one on here, or will this be a completely different twist? >>> Sounds like a unique start for a beat start… Must be dat Reuben Lael dude on tha feature, again; likin’ it, although I thought I’d hear a catchy sample, surprisingly… Ooh, you’re on tha 1st verse, startin’ off wit tha “kush;” definitely what’s up, Sav! Sounds like you’re havin’ a day of your own on tha 1st verse, Sav; that’s what you gotta have! That’s why I’m feelin’ betta than I’ve felt before: I don’t give a fuck ‘bout others; people gotta give a fuck ‘bout me, first! I did in 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010; four years iz enough! Ooh, even a “rollin’ up a blunt or two” on tha hook; damn, talk about feelin’ good/greater than a ma’fucka! Sounds like tha 2nd verse iz good, too; I can see tha ladies likin’ this, too, wit all this shit you’re offerin’, Sav! LOL, now, it sounds like some ignorin’ on tha 3rd verse; very anti, Sav, lol! Re-hearin’ tha original, and it sounds like a completely different singer, this time. I actually like tha original better, but this iz pretty nice, too. My Rating: 4.3


18. Mitch
Anti-bitch, lol? I dunno, so lemme hear what you got goin’ on, Sav! >>> LOL, didn’t realize it was 22 seconds! Forget tha “anti” that I said; this sounds like someone who owes money, bein’ an actual ‘bitch,’ lol! My Rating: N/A


19. “I’m A Rider”
Yes, some ridin’ music; let’s hear it! >>> LOL, sounds like a horse gettin’ ready ta go wit tha sounds in tha beginning; good job wit tha production, Sav! ROFL, you killin’ these hooks wit how you be doin’ you on ‘em!! Shit, err-body gotta feel this, in an obsessive, ridin’ way, lol! Strictly on your own on tha 1st verse; I feel dat! You keep this independent, Out The Cage Entertainment shit up, you gon keep this quality in your music active! Nice job wit tha 2nd verse, too; what else could I expect from you, Sav? Tha 3rd verse iz pretty good, too; lol, keep enjoyin’ life, Sav! My Rating: 4.4


20. “UGK (True Story)”
Will you be able ta have anotha five-star-rated C—oh, a repeat song, lol; guess you automatically win, or should I say, “wi-i-iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin,” lol! You already know wit this one; you strictly do it great for “UGK,” and for tha South! LOL, I didn’t recognize tha reversed word ‘til I un-reversed it, just now: “in-person”? “[Somethin’] person”? LOL… My Current Rating: 4.5


Overall: You did it again, Sav!! Definitely came through wit some consistent, hot, fresh, tight-ass shit!! Even though I liked tha 1st volume better, this goes to show you that you don’t stop what you’re doin’!! Like I said, you’re one of tha best people in your 20s, ya feel me?

© 2011 CD Review (Review #1,069) reviewed on 8.26.2011 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. “I’m Back”
>>> Not too bad for a start; seems like you’re really focused. Damn, slangin’ shit, too? Wonder if you remember date and time of when you first slanged some shit? That would be interestin’… Good job wit tha catchy rhymes goin’ on, here. My Rating: 3.8


02. “Re-Introduction”
>>> Sounds like you’re defeatin’ an enemy, easily? LOL, kickin’ ass, here… Nice job wit tha rhymes, once again. My Rating: 3.9


03. “Times Gettin’ Hard”
>>> Not tha kinda beat I’d rap on but tha rhymes are decent… My Rating: 3.2


04. “Back To That Murder Shit!”
LOL @ tha exclamation point! >>> Oh, I didn’t realize it was clichĂ©/already in use for tha title… When did you get this gangsta? Plus, if you’re this gangsta, where’s tha attitude? You should add some anger; aren’t you angry at someone? :confused My Rating: 3.4


05. “For The Hood”
>>> A lil’ too much like Wayne on tha voice, here? Actually, rhymes are pretty consistent, wit quality! Nice job wit tha rappin’, here! My Rating: 4.0


06. “Money Right” Feat. J-Hitta
>>> Now, you sound a lil’ like Drake, here… I like this representation of doin’ “it for tha block;” good shit! Was that J-Hitta in tha beginning? This sounds more like you on tha 2nd verse; good collab, includin’ tha gangsta shit, again, lol. My Rating: 3.7


07. “Hate Me”
>>> Sounds like I can dig this; I’m feelin’ tha catchiness between tha beat you chose, and how you handlin’ tha hook. I’m into tha rhymes, too; even though this iz a lil’ long, it’s not that bad ta deal wit… My Rating: 3.8


08. “I Think I’m Bill Gates”
Then, you think you have Autism or Asperger’s? BTW, there were two #8s; wasn’t sure which one was #8 & #9… >>> No interest in tha rhymes, unfortunately; don’t even see where tha title comes into play, too. My Rating: 1.8


09. “Serious”
>>> Lil’ too long of an intro for a short song… Slowly losin’ interest wit some of tha typical shit goin’ on… “My niggaz got pounds;” what’s it like ta hang wit drug dealers? Date & time of first encounter? My Rating: 2.8


½time: Not that bad…; a 3.4 for tha CD rating, right now.


10. “I’m On”
>>> This sounds aight; I can feel it, a lil’… My Rating: 3.5


11. “Look At Me Now Flow”
>>> Sounds good wit how you’re handlin’ this beat; nice job! My Rating: 4.1


12. “Mixtape Creature”
LOL? What about album? I think “mixtape”s are pretty outdated, now! >>> This iz as consistent as tha previous freestyle! My Rating: 4.2


13. “Scared Money” Feat. J-Hitta
Why iz it scary? :confused Actually, it’s scary when people talk about it constantly in their music! >>> Kinda boring and on a typical note, figures… Unfortunately, it sounds like I’m listenin’ to a typical rapper? J-Hitta’s on tha 2nd verse and it’s a touch better, but that’s about it. My Rating: 2.4


14. “Make It Rain” (Silk & Tre)
Who’s tha other dude? >>> Of course, pretty homosexual wit this beat, in this dumb-ass 2010s generation! I like these random lyrics in tha 1st verse, from “nuttin’” to “weed,” lol? Even tha 2nd verse sounds random, but good, too. My Rating: 3.1


15. “Cypher” (J-Hitta & L.A. Tre)
Combo? I think I got tha title right… >>> Decent; nothin’ ta say. My Rating: 3.0


16. “People Change Up”
Where’s tha “up” comin’ from? >>> This iz really long; don’t think I can handle it… Your voice sounds a lil’ lower, here, or iz that tha beat and you, combined? Oh, I hear tha hook, now; it’s true… Tha difference between others and myself iz that I evolved: hated bein’ 20, 21 & ½ of 22! Now that I’m 23, I get to care about myself and myself only! My Rating: 2.7


17. “Hard In The Paint Flow”
>>> Anotha one wit a longer length? Three minutes seems too long for a jacked beat, smh. LOL @ all this drug shit; I dunno how much I can take it serious, no offense. I guess I’m lookin’ for an attitude? You sound tha same on most of these tracks… “Nutted in her face” …; “one clip to his head” …; “rollin’ up some weed” …; “we makin’ love” …; “I struggled at a young age;” you see what I’m sayin’? Well, there’s a lil’ bit of anger, at least. My Rating: 2.5


18. “We Back” Feat. Gutta & Smeech
>>> Was gonna “WTF?” at tha Tupac in tha beginning but it’s “Tupac Back”, so it’s an exception. LOL, surprised you know about this song, already… Overall, tha rappin’ iz random for me; nothin’ bad, but nothin’ good, either. My Rating: 2.6


Overall: Not tha worst, but nothin’ excitin’, except #11 & 12.

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 already love it. 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.

Gotta hear it! >>> Good energy; you know what it iz! Great job wit tha definition! My Rating: N/A


02. “Otha Shit”
Let’s start it off wit… >>> A Supa intro? Thought he was gonna be featured but sounds good wit this classic-soundin’ beat! Tha hook sounds pretty nice, too; great job wit tha Greg life, Greg, lol! Nice job wit what you’re bringin’ to tha 1st verse; nothin’ but dat tight “shit” fa tha streetz at all times! Tha 2nd verse sounds great, too; gotta feel tha energy you’re bringin’ to tha voice and rhymes!! Almost sounds like tha Beezy Bird “bow” in tha background, but it sounds like an “ow,” lol. Uh oh, “BiPolar” Greg on tha 3rd verse! Great job… Also, nice job wit Supa on tha outro, too! ROFL @ tha cold-ass ending! My Rating: 4.4


03. “No Game Show” Feat. Jab & Piz Corleone
Let’s hear what’s goin’ on wit this anti-“game show”, lol! >>> Ooh, really likin’ tha beat, here; reminds me of tha old-soundin’ Down Bad shit!! Really likin’ tha shit goin’ on wit tha 1st verse, Greg; great way of bein’ “married” to “[your] pistol!” Ooh, “game show”s are in tha 1st ½ of tha hook and really, “it ain’t a game” ta describe tha 2nd ½ of tha hook; definitely catchy as fuck, here!! Tha 2nd verse iz soundin’ off to a great start wit Jab on it! I like all tha “dawg” parts; definitely holdin’ it down, Jab! Piz sounds pretty good on tha 3rd verse; definitely feelin’ tha vibe, here, wit all this hyped-upness! Ooh, 1:47 left? Long outro comin’ up? Outro starts at 1:25; let’s see what’s goin’ on… Just hearin’ tha beat, currently… Nice job wit this beat outro! I could talk on this durin’ my radio show! My Rating: 4.8


04. “In My Own Zone”
Whoo!! You already know how I feel about this E.P.-produced track! Go, Greg! Go, Greg! Go, Greg! My Current Rating: 4.6


05. “Tap Out” Feat. Nip Cannon & Mel 985
Let’s see what’s good wit dis! >>> Sounds like a good, neutral-speed club song; nice hook. Good job wit tha first—or should I say, ffffffiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrsssssssstttttt verse, drunk style, lol. Tha 2nd verse iz soundin’ like it’s off to a good start wit Nip on it; “somebody catch [him],” lol. I like how this 3rd verse iz soundin’ (Mel?); good “rollin’” and all dat shit, lol! Tha hook almost sounds like Piz Corleone! Oh wait, Mel’s on tha 4th verse; thumbs up ta Nip (I guess?) on tha 3rd verse, though! I like tha family vibe, here; lol @ all tha drinks. I saw a flyer for somethin’ recently and it said $50 for a bottle of somethin’; kinda WTF for me? My Rating: 4.4


06. “Macked Out Party” Feat. Supa
Just you? >>> LOL @ tha beginning wit Supa; sounds like somethin’ anticipatin’, includin’ this King Arthur beat/sounds! Almost thought it was a familiar song but it iz featurin’ Supa on tha hook, here! LOL @ tha no source? Feelin’ what you bringin’ on tha 1st verse, Greg; thumbs up fa your energy, once again! Definitely a great anthem fa tha “Macked Out” Music clique! LOL @ you on tha 2nd verse: “Is You Wet Yet Wednesdays;” really? Damn, this breezed by pretty quick; nice energy and what you contributed, here!! My Rating: 4.6


07. “Seek & Destroy” Feat. Johnny Hustle
Looks pretty serious! >>> Likin’ tha intro; thought it was gonna be an R&B joint, lol. Pure hook; really feelin’ tha lyrics in tha hook!! Definitely a title like this goes a long way, ya dig? Also, feelin’ your seriousness on tha 1st verse, too! Ooh, “for them brick throwaz” on tha 2nd verse; definitely feelin’ everything you bringin’, he—“out tha window,” lol! J-Hustle’s spittin’ some pretty catchy shit on tha 3rd verse; thumbs up fa tha consistency in tha flow, too! My Rating: 4.6


08. “Problem Child”
What do we got, here? >>> Ooh, a King Arthur beat dat sounds like tha Early 2000s, a lil’! Gangsta lyrics comin’ from you, here; definitely feelin’ ‘em, of course! LOL @ tha “pull yo pants up” and “why you smokin’ cigarettes” part; I can’t picture y’all “smokin’ cigarettes” ‘cause basically, it’s weed! “Cigarettes” seem gay/typical; can’t stand my mom buyin’ a pack every day or two! Tha hook sounds pretty nice; good shit you bringin’, too! All these problems can come into play nicely, thanx ta this song! My Rating: 4.4


09. “Bird Call” Feat. Pounds
LOL, this made it! Thought it was one of tha most-surprising-soundin’ collaborations, but then again, y’all are cousinz, lol. As reviewed on Pounds’s two mixtapes, this iz definitely nice, overall, wit a great beat and great contributions from tha both of y’all! My Current Rating: 4.4


½time: Currently, this iz a pretty serious CD, Greg!! Definitely glad you finally put it out, ya dig?! You’re standin’ at 4.5 for tha CD rating, wit a possible chance at five stars!!!!!


10. “Gimme Wut I Want” Feat. Jab & Supa
Lookin’ forward ta dis! LOL, Supa finally sourced? >>> Likin’ this; catchy hook, of course! You can’t resist somethin’ like this ‘cause it’s tha shiiiit, lol! Sounds like you afta tha sex on tha 1st verse; good shit, especially wit how you keep your voice rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’ wit consistency and entertainment, ya dig? Jab on dat hook; very catchy wit tha voice and how he keeps sayin’ tha title!! LOL, Supa on tha 2nd verse, wit a lil’ bit of Juvenile in tha flow; definitely feelin’ everything goin’ on here, since it’s fulla catchiness!! Not too bad wit Jab on tha 3rd verse, here; tha rhymes I mainly like are tha “Macked Out”-type/referred rhymes. My Rating: 4.5


11. “Bless My Enemies” Feat. Mel 985 & Piz Corleone
This looks like somethin’ cool… >>> Actually, real cool wit tha beat start!! Do I hear some Mel in tha beginning wit tha title? Damn, this iz gonna be somethin’ catchy! Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some real rhymes dat go great wit this kinda beat, ya dig? Tha way Mel says, “that’s my enemies,” sounds like some song in tha past wit tha voice? Must be a great rendition goin’ on, here! Speakin’ of Mel, here he iz on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some catchy, real-type rhymes! “It’s like, some mouse in tha house … tryna kill it;” exactly what my mom has been doin’ tha past few dayz, lol! ROFL, really cold ending? I guess that’s Piz on tha hook? LOL, I’m confused, now! My Rating: 4.5


12. “I Need Dat” Feat. Supa
Let’s hear dis! >>> Ooh, hot beat start; definitely luvin’ what y’all bringin’ to tha table wit these tracks!!! Tha hook sounds pretty catchy; definitely luvin’ what you bringin’, here, wit all these kinds of money-related things, lol! Also, I’m on #12 and I didn’t even hear a reference ta “So Whopped”, currently; lol, I remember hearin’ it in, like, every song in tha past! LOL @ what you bringin’ to tha 2nd verse; demandin’ at its finest!! Hope I get ta see some $ from you, soon, when it comes ta doin’ some videos and shit! LOL @ tha start ta tha 3rd verse wit Supa… Hope I can get a few $$$ before all this “head” and “pussy;” that’s a bet! ROFL, anotha cold-ass ending! My Rating: 4.5


13. “Money My Motivator” Feat. Jab & Mel 985
LOL, sequel? >>> Nice dialect in tha beginning… Nice job wit tha beat, of course; like my tracks A+! Also, this iz a good “money” song, unlike most bullshit songs out there. Tha 2nd verse iz pretty good, too; was wondering how long this was wit tha two verses from you, but there’s room… Here’s tha 3rd verse (Jab?), comin’ through wit some good shit… Maybe this iz Jab on tha 4th verse? I’m only goin’ by tha order… Not too crazy about what’s goin’ on wit this verse… ROFL, cold-ass ending, again! My Rating: 4.2


14. “Grind, Hustle” Feat. J-Von & Drako
Looks like somethin’ gon jump off wit this one! >>> Definitely a good vibe; I feel like it’s tha good times of Louisiana (from 2008 and before)! J-Von on tha 1st verse? Comin’ through wit some tightness, here! Ooh, beat sounds are at their finest at 1:02!! Here you are on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit good shit, too, “hustle” at full time! Uh oh, cold…—up, a fade-out ending, lol! My Rating: 4.5


15. “I’m On” Feat. Nip & Mel 985
Let’s see what we got… >>> Smooth start wit kick-ass beat sounds, once again! Nice job wit tha 1st verse; not bad… Tha hook sounds pretty catchy, too; must be Nip, here? I hear tha Mel 985 voice on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit… club shit? Here you are on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through wit some shit fa tha “hoes,” here, lol. LOL, just ended like it was nothin’! My Rating: 4.3


16. “Bringin’ My Roll Down” Feat. Johnny Hustle & Cage (Down Bad)
LOL, was a radio exclusive for a while (as a DNA track). Now, lemme finally review it! >>> Always luved tha kick-ass beat goin’ on, here; very serious!! Also, you on tha hook iz a monster, too!! You’re really kickin’ ass on tha 1st verse! “Like Mario wit his mushroom, power up!” Good shit from Hustle on tha 2nd verse; he got a focused mentality when it comes ta any in-person-type shit, ya dig? Hope I meet everyone soon! Just findin’ a male figure ta go wit ‘cause most males where I’m at suck fuckin’ ass!!! Here’s Cage wit his entertainin’-ass on tha 3rd verse; definitely tha shit you’d wanna hear wit his words!! They keep goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’, lol!! Quick ending, here, lol. My Current Rating: 4.7


17. “So Stupid” Feat. Drako, Big World & Supa
“More”? >>> What tha hell was that beat tag in tha beginning and why was it longer than two seconds/a couple sentences? Thought this was gonna be tha just “Stupid” as tha title song, but it’s a new song! Tha beat sounds pretty serious, here; definitely feelin’ it! Hook’s nice, as well as what’s goin’ on wit this 1st verse (must be Drako ‘cause I can’t believe of “More” bein’ anyone, smh)! Keep this catchy shit up, ya dig? Well, Supa’s on tha hook; why no room? LOL, “Bringin’ My Roll Down” had a much-bigger ID… This iz you on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit tha intoxicated-type verse, lol! LOL, here’s Big World on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through “stoned” as a ma’fucka, lol? Gotta luv it! He’s someone I’m dyin’ ta meet, ya dig? Neva really kicked it—seriously—wit dread-heads dat are huge, lol! Here’s tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse: Supa, comin’ through wit his “M.O.M.”-type shit, as always! Well, I guess tha correct ID iz “Feat. Drako, Big World & Supa” instead of “& More” (yea, like that was hard, smh)! ROFL @ tha ending wit, “free Boosie;” random, Supa, lol! My Rating: 4.5


18. “So Whopped” Feat. Supa & Jack (Down Bad)
LOL? My Current Rating: 4.3


19. “Thuggin’ Is Da Life” Feat. T.C.
What this gon be like for an ending song? >>> Dunno why, but it gives me a Young Bleed/Frieze Off Da Curb CD feel wit this vibe! Thumbs up ta dat T.C. dude on tha hook! Really feelin’ his—oh, iz that you, lol? This must be from tha Early 2000s or somethin’ ‘cause it sounds so old? Interestin’, though, especially wit what this song iz, overall! Or, iz this T.C. on tha 2nd verse? Neva mind, I think this him on tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse? LOL @ my confusion! But, you know this shit’s pretty nice, old style! My Rating: 4.4


Overall: A+, Greg; you know what it iz!! You always come through wit tha consistency and type of shit dat’s pure!! Actually, tha whole Macked Out Music clique seems ta be like dat, too! Gotta give y’all big shout outs, ya feel me? Keep up tha great, consistent work!!

Reviewed on 8.25.2011 (Review #1,066)


Previously, on August 25, 2009, I reviewed G-Lane Vol. 1. Today, two years later, I’m reviewin’ G-Lane Back 2 Business (Hosted by DJ Smallz); had to repeat a moment! BTW, because I reviewed tha leak CD last month, any song I heard already will have a copy/pasted review/score. I also am not puttin’ up wit any bullshit, either. Start Time: 10:47 PM | End Time: 11:17 PM

© 2011 CD Review (Review #1,066) reviewed on 8.25.2011 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. DJ Smallz “Fear Factor Intro”
Lemme hear this hosting/tagging! >>> Thought it would be a lil’ bigger than a phone-call sound? Either way, not bad, although a lil’ on a laidback vibe in tha voice… My Rating: N/A


02. Q-Red Feat. Mouse On Tha Track “Certified”
My Rating: N/A


03. Young True Feat. A-One (Wissel) “Body N It”
LOL @ A-One listed as A-Wissel and this song finally appearin’ on a CD!! Interestin’ song; who would’ve thought people would know it and it would appear on a CD? Catchy shit from True on this mysteriously-produced track; nothin’ but a “body” and an “N,” lol! Good shit on tha 1st verse; “shiiiid who? Young True!!” Wissel sounds good on tha 2nd verse; sounds more crazy when he does all that skiddin’ wit tha car in tha rhymes, lol! LOL, True doesn’t give up; he always has energy!! Good shit comin’ through on tha 3rd verse, too, or should I say, tha bridge! My Current Rating: 4.4


04. BluBlack “Beat A Bitch Up”
LOL @ still bein’ listed as “Blu Black”; I believe I was 20 and 21 when listing it like that, lol! Sounds like a catchy song; more like a “bow” anthem, lol. Oh wait, I thought this was for tha ladies but it’s for tha pussy-asses, lol! Good shit comin’ from Blu on tha 1st verse; nothin’ but consistency and non-stop rhymes wit tha entertainment fa tha gangstaz! LOL, tha 2nd verse sounds good, too; crazy shit, here, that doesn’t stop!! My Current Rating: 4.6


05. BluBlack Feat. A.R. & Classik “Kimbo Slice”
More like A+B+C instead of a feature… My Current Rating: 4.4


06. LG Loc “I Got It 4 Sale”
Now, his name doesn’t have caps? Sounds good; very Three 6 Mafia-soundin’, here, wit not just tha sample but tha beat, too? Likin’ tha voice of tha 1st verse; sounds like a Memphis flow ‘cause of this track, but you know it’s fully “G-Lane,” here!! What?!? Tha dude on tha 2nd verse iz not DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia? Neva mind, I think it iz… or iz it? Very confusin’ but whateva, it’s tight! Tha 2nd ½ sounds more G-Lane and it’s kick-ass at all times, too! Yea, this iz a jacked Three 6 song; I hear Juicy J on tha 3rd verse… LOL @ tha “semen on ya shoes,” rofl… My Current Rating: 4.3


07. BluBlack Feat. Butla B & Big Head “Full”
LOL @ tha “B” in Butla’s name… But yea, heard this on Da Cook Book; real glad Blu has a connection wit Big Head, despite tha age difference! I sometimes think he sounds like Yung Yola… Here’s what I previously said: When tha tag goes, “DJ Bootsie & BluBlack…,” does dat me Blu & Bootsie produced it? Anyway, really likin’ tha intro wit wantin’ ta get “fulla dat!” Feelin’ tha 1st verse from Blu, really comin’ through wit some interestin’ shit, drug style and BluBlack-beat style!! Tha hook’s pretty catchy; lots of luv fa “loaded” shit, here! :tu Butla’s on tha 2nd verse and this shit’s really entertainin’!! “And if I smell yo ass;” watch out fa tha Butla!!! Let’s see what Big Head got ta say on tha 3rd verse… Speakin’ of “loaded,” on May 6, 2011, I hit up Dat Boy A on tha phone and Big Head surprisingly got on tha phone wit me. When we were done talkin’, he ended it wit, “you sound like you fulla dem quaaludes,” rofl!! :rofl Such a funny ending!! Soundin’ good on tha 3rd verse, Big Head; nothin’ but consistentness, here!! My Current Rating: 4.8


08. Yung Yola Feat. Young True & D.$.G. “Stunted Out”
Where’s my interview? :confused Goin’ on four months now! Only already-reviewed songs’ll be rated, then! My Current Rating: 4.5


09. Hannibal Feat. BluBlack & Reese “We Can’t Lose”
Now, it’s Hannibal featuring? What’s wit tha change of heart? :/ My Current Rating: 4.3


10. Hannibal Feat. Reese & Young Ready “Stay Strapped”
No mix up? LOL @ tha two play… “Stay Strapped” or “Still Strapped”? Can’t do anything wit a song if there’s all these different IDs and shit. Sounds good for a start wit this Hannibal-soundin’ beat and lol @ tha “got my hand on my gun” for tha start; Gangstabal? LOL… This iz somethin’ serious; I’m definitely likin’ what’s goin’ on, here! However, haven’t seen a “gun” since January 23, 2008, when I had one to me; hope that’ll be tha last day I see one! I hear Reese on tha 1st verse; definitely a gutta voice, here, fa tha streetz! Gonna keep this a secret from my grandma; we gotta think there’s no “guns” shown when we go ta Baton Rouge! If we see one, it could be all over for me and my travelin’, smh. Hannibal’s on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some gangsta-soundin’ shit, here! Tha other song of him had tha catchy-soundin’ rhymes; this has tha gangsta-soundin’ rhymes, instead, which sounds great, regardless! LOL, Ready’s on tha 3rd verse; what an “insane” Ready flow, here!! LOL, keep it goin’, keep it goin’!! LOL @ tha Ready “flizzo” and “Quizno’s” rhyme; fuckin’ catchy-ass shit!! My Current Rating: 4.8


½time: Nice blending goin’ on between tha songs, too; goes ta show you tha consistency doesn’t stop! Wit a 4.5 for tha CD rating, you already know that this shit’s official!!!!!


11. Young True Feat. Blu3Da Truth & Lil’ Mike “Panic Button”
Another ID flip, smh. Sounds like a BluBlack beat but if Blu3 Da Truth’s on tha feature, it must be Blu3, then. Young True can pull off some of these typical, dancin’-soundin’ lyrics ‘cause he tight when he comes through wit it! I like tha gangsta shit he got goin’ on, here; maybe, I’ll hear somethin’ about tha oil spill from him? Good ta put your experiences in tha song! Tight hook; really likin’ tha voice from True, here, especially wit this title! LOL, really feelin’ how Blu3 Da Truth’s comin’ through on this shit; damn, this song was really short… My Current Rating: 4.5


12. BluBlack Feat. Level & A.R. “Top Notch”
I think it should be BluBlack & A.R. featuring Level but I guess it’s listed by who comes through 1st, 2nd, you know. I wrote Level on Facebook recently and I said to him, “when you gon rap about Autism/Asperger’s?” He didn’t write back but I dare him ta trade his so-called “dick” for a lil’ bit of Autism/Asperger’s but unfortunately, it seems like that ain’t ‘cool’ fa him and tha hood; *yawn*… Watch him not even respond to my text on his birthday comin’ up; he did in 2010! C’mon, I’m a lot better than those dumb-ass times! Don’t come runnin’ ta me if someone he knows winds up gettin’ it; 1 in 110 people get it, which in Baton Rouge, there are at least 110 fathers, I assume? Previously, here’s what I said: Definitely sounds like it, 100, regardless of who’s producin’! Sounds like a pretty catchy hook; thought it would be on Boosie’s level fa a second, lol. Of course, Level comin’ through wit tha cocky-type rhymes in tha 1st verse dat sound good, as always. LOL, Blu’s on tha 2nd verse, too, comin’ through wit good street/225-type shit. LOL, “how’d you get in? I jumped,” ROFL! Definitely an entertainin’ verse from Blu, once again!! Glad we’re on tha A – A+ level, here! I picture just Blu on this but you know others had ta be on dis! A.R.’s on tha 2nd verse and it sounds good; he knows how ta handle a beat, especially if his boy iz on tha beat (D. Jackson)! LOL, no room fa Classik, here; very Classikless fa a classic-soundin’ song, lol! My Current Rating: 4.7


13. BluBlack Feat. Supa “Same Night”
Sounds like a production from Blu based off tha beat ta—ooh, likin’ tha beat sounds on tha intro, here! Yea, this sounds hotter than Katy Perry noticing a “hickey,” thanx ta Supa wit tha “hoes!” Definitely a tight hook! I guess Blu obsesses gurls too much? A lil’ like a triple twist? It’s always good ta go solo, like myself; I get so many things done without someone controllin’ me! Feelin’ all tha interestin’, entertainin’ shit from Blu on tha 1st verse; talk about alternatin’ between so much shit, lol! From all tha “hoes” shit ta tha “purp;” Blu’s always got his frequent, tight hobbies on lock, lol! Supa’s on tha 2nd verse, and it sounds pretty nice, of course; definitely tha shit at all times wit this entertainment! Huh? Who’s on tha 3rd verse? :confused Iz it Kidd? Betta hear their name!! Must be him since he said, “betta cuff her,” when his Facebook name says, “Kidd Nap Her;” I’ll see what Hannibal says about tha feature… My Current Rating: 4.6


14. Pezie Feat. S.O.S. & BluBlack “Duck Down”
No “Boy” in tha name, this time? Fuck… Feelin’ tha darker sound of tha beat, here! Tha previous song (“Throw Your Numbers Up”) was automatic smokin’. Now, tha gangsta side of Pezie’s comin’ through, here; really feelin’ it, especially tha gutta-ass beat!!! This iz definitely somethin’ serious, here!! Good thing fa this exposure, here! Too bad Sheen~Marie died on his birthday! :( But, I gon keep his birthday as a special moment, regardless! Ooh, S.O.S. comin’ through wit some gangsta shit, too, on tha 2nd verse; I wonder what it’s like ta have these gangsta-type things goin’ on throughout tha hood, as well as doin’ gangsta things, too? Also, I’m glad Pezie’s handlin’ a hook; nothin’ but great exposure fa dat boy, here!!! Yay, Blu’s on tha 3rd verse wit his gangsta shit, too!! Damn, Blu just keeps comin’ through wit tha serious-ass shit in tha verse!! LOL @ his endin’ wit tha cocky-soundin’ way of sayin’, “nigga,” lol! <- add:="" b="" to=""> I like how I’m now in touch wit Pezie via phone; that’s a step in tha evolving direction! Also, I see Pezie liked my status about some shitty-ass radio-editing goin’ on at my college; I can prove six words wrong wit 244 words, ya dig? My Current Rating: 4.9


15. BluBlack Feat. Needy Nee “I’m ‘Bout Dat Gangsta Shit”
“I’m ‘Bout Dat” added to tha title? :confused Throwin’ me for a loop, here… Because they’re doin’ a duet together, I was thinkin’ they were gonna have sex on tha track wit tha content, lol. But, it’s a “gangsta” song, lol; nice hook wit this serious, “gangsta shit!” I definitely like tha Pezie song betta but you know this rolls, too! Blu has one of tha best, entertainin’-soundin’ voices and flow on tha track; just gotta luv how he comes through wit it!!! Yay, here’s Needy on tha 2nd verse; thumbs up ta tha “gangsta shit” she spittin’ on tha 2nd verse, doin’ tha damn thang fa tha South! My Current Rating: 4.6


16. Hannibal Feat. Sims On Da Track “Hustlin’ ‘Til The Sunrise”
I knew there was a “hustlin’” instead of “hustling”… or, iz there? “’Til” instead of “Till”, too…? Sounds like an interestin’ intro wit tha different producer-soundin’ beat… Sounds like Adlib in tha background? That’s tha only person I picture but I doubt it’s him… Good hook from Hannibal; doesn’t sound cheesy but it sounds great for tha hustlaz! Yes, Hannibal said, “buku;” definitely likin’ these rhymes!! Hannibal comin’ through mo-consistent than eva!! Sims’s consistent on tha 2nd verse; good mix and good follow-up ta “Cocky”… or am I thinkin’ backwards? I think I’m thinkin’ forward… I’m feelin’ tha 3rd verse from Hannibal, too; we definitely ain’t drownin’! Hannibal comin’ through wit tha outro; sounds good wit “Sims on tha track” (thumbs up fa sayin’ who produced it ‘cause I was gonna think Casanova did it)! My Current Rating: 4.5


17. Yung Yola “Give All That I Got”
My Rating: N/A


18. Sims On The Track “Hustle And Party”
Because he’s one that’s kept music secret from me, I feel dat this could be ’09, ’10, ’11, or older? Whateva it iz, I’ll know that it’s newer for me. Tha beat’s pretty hot and consistent, here, as well as tha interestin’ flow from Sims, here; likin’ how this track’s made, overall! I’m sure this iz somethin’ dat gon be reallll catchy ‘cause of not just this entertainin’ song but tha way Sims comes through wit tha entertainment, himself! My Current Rating: 4.7


19. Obeeze Feat. S.O.S. “Gettin’ In My Zone”
Yes, “gettin’”; neva trust what you previously see!! Likin’ tha repetitiveness of tha title and tha way this beat sounds! LOL, BeyoncĂ© needs “a barber!” I guess this fades tha haircut good ‘cause this iz some tight shit! Anyway, pretty quick wit tha verse; feelin’ how Obeeze comin’ through on tha 1st verse, ya dig? He got shit on lock, although tha March 27, 2011 thought of tha “Go Hard N Da Paint (Remix)” video failed ta happen. I made a guess in ’09 in my head and always remembered tha date fa some reason, lol. S.O.S.’s on tha 2nd verse and you know this iz somethin’ serious; was this tha song that Hannibal played for me through tha phone months and months ago? Must be ‘cause they don’t have too many songs… My Current Rating: 4.7


20. Yung Yola Feat. D.$.G. “Haterz (I Luv You)”
My Current Rating: 4.8


21. Yung Yola “It’s So Hard”
My Rating: N/A


Overall: LOL, same score, which also means it’s anotha five-star-rating! There was a 4.6 for tha CD rating durin’ tha ½time tha last time, lol; that was tha only difference.

Review #1,065: Lee Banks "Target Practice"

Reviewed on 8.25.2011 (Review #1,065)



Next up, I believe wit Paypa Talk Records? Or, maybe Pyrex Radio Music Group/Staxx On Deck Entertainment? I know Paypa Talk did a photoshoot together… Lee Banks Target Practice; let’s see what it do. Start Time: 4:08 PM | End Time: 4:45 PM


Disclaimer: I rate each song from 1.0 – 5.0; each rating iz my own opinion! I only please myself wit my ratings! I don’t care how lyrical you are, as long as it’s jammin’ enough for me to like it! I look for beats, then vocals, and then lyrics. To determine my favorites, I will differ tha 4.0 ratings. If a song gets at least a 4.0 rating from me, I already love it. 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. Target Practice Intro (T Mck)
>>> Must be still locked up, since he on tha phone. Dolby D doin’ some good mixin’, too… Sounds like this gon turn out ta be a pretty tight mixtape! My Rating: N/A


02. “Shots Fired”
Let’s hear it! >>> Not an original beat? I’ll try ta just pay attention ta you, then… Sounds pretty gutta wit how you’re comin’, of course… I know you were pretty serious on dat “Baton Rouge Thang”; glad ta see a whole mixtape on a “Baton Rouge Thang” tip! Great voice fa this, too; gotta have anger fa this shit right chea! My Rating: 4.2


03. “Kill Yaself (G-Mix)”
More like “yaself” instead of “ya self,” ya dig? >>> Again, feelin’ tha attitude and focus at all times when it comes ta you, here! Pretty serious lyrics goin’ on, too; so much anti-fake shit goin’ on? Hopefully, you are official wit it! My Rating: 4.3


04. “Dumb Shit 2011”
Glad this iz here. I know of this from tha no2thebr.com mixtape compilation; much hotter than 1st listen, too! My Current Rating: 4.4


05. “Go Dumb” (Shell (Young Thugga) & Lee Banks)
NO To The BR 5 style! Definitely some hot shit, once again! My Current Rating: 4.4


06. “Can I Help U (Nigga Fuck U) (G-Mix)”
LOL @ tha title! >>> Sounds real serious wit this shit, here; really feelin’ all tha types of punchlines goin’ on!! Shit, they ain’t stoppin’! Sounds like somethin’ Spitta would spit; very, very hot!! Keepin’ shit goin’ wit more than one verse; you already know this tha hottest song, so far!! My Rating: 4.7


07. “I Don’t Know What To Call It (G-Mix)”
>>> Glad you have this gutta side to you; if it’s like this ‘til #20, you’ll definitely be acin’ these jointz, easily! Damn, keep it goin’, keep it goin’, keep it goin’!! Glad you have some Young Ready and Spitta inside of you! My Rating: 4.4


08. “My Chopper (G-Mix)” Feat. Lil’ Phat & Big Head
Looks like a serious collab! >>> Hearin’ some Young Ready wit you, here; very tight wit it!! Oh, I recognize tha hook; interestin’ ta have your own version… Lil’ Phat’s comin’ through wit some street shit on tha 2nd verse; iz he afraid ta have an attitude or somethin’, lol? It’s like, yell… I know he did it once, when he said, “keep my name out yo muthafuckin’ mouth,” back two years ago. Anyway, Big Head’s comin’ through pretty nice on tha 3rd verse; at least his attitude sounds like he’s angry, not neutral, lol! But, we all know dat everyone did tha damn thang to tha fullest, here! My Rating: 4.5


09. “Mental Home (G-Mix)”
LOL, where are all these instrumentals comin’ from? >>> Even though it’s Mod Productions (of course), his beats usually leak online. But, this was already a track, so it’s interestin’ ta hear a different side… Nothin’ ta really say, as my feedback looks tha same; you know you’re doin’ tha damn thang wit this undaground, rap shit! My Rating: 4.3


10. “The Real Story” Feat. Lil’ Ernest & Lil’ Mista
Speakin’ of titles, wasn’t this a Savage song? >>> Maybe, it’s a new song? Feelin’ tha street vibe goin’ on wit tha 1st verse, Ernest; definitely a 225 representation, here, especially fa “Ghost”town! I like tha hook, here, especially tha “dodgin’ all these red, white, and blue lights” line; hella catchy! Lil’ Mista’s comin’ through on tha 2nd verse; good shit, of course! Here you are on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through wit tha gutta-ass vibe fa this street-ass song! Ooh, nice part at 3:14 wit tha quieter side of tha beat… or should I say, ending to tha song!! My Rating: 4.6


½time: A 4.4-rated CD, currently; definitely some official-ass shit dat’s goin’ on, here…, continuously!!!!


11. “Closed Case”
Uh oh, time ta end a “case,” lol? >>> Sounds like consistent rhymes dat don’t stop, once again; definite plus!! What else can I say? I’ve said nearly tha same thang on each song, ya feel me? My Rating: 4.3


12. “Life”
>>> Good vibe, especially wit tha beat goin’ on, here! Almost sounds like Young Ready for tha begin—oh, of course, it’s always you wit dat great style! Prolly could’ve had a feature or two, here; a lil’ longer than typical… My Rating: 4.1


13. “The Wall (Freestyle)” (Coppertop, Box, Lee Banks & Ronny My)
A quadruple lineup!! >>> Feelin’ tha 1st verse; thumbs up, Coppertop! Box’s 2nd, soundin’ tighter wit his punchlines! That’s right! “I breathe life into it;” B-B-B-B-Box!! You’re 3rd? Sounds good wit what you’re bringin’, here! “My attitude iz nasty;” that’s what people need ta make some quality tracks for tha streetz, ya dig?! Ronny’s last… Not really tha hard type, here; a lil’ softer, wit a mainstream twist, so I only think his part’s aight… My Rating: 4.5


14. “Dat Nigga” Feat. DJ B-Real
Lookin’ forward ta hearin’ this collab! >>> I like tha start; sounds like somethin’ official! Definitely a nice hook comin’ from B-Real, here, as always! You’re doin’ a nice job wit tha attitude and rhymes, as usual; can’t deny what you’re bringin’ to tha table! Ooh, 2nd verse’s soundin’ a lil’ on a catchier tip, wit a tight-ass gangsta tip, too!! My Rating: 4.6


15. “Go DJ (G-Mix)”
>>> Glad you “give it 102” when it comes to tha quality! Great drug content goin’ on wit some fastness!! This iz betta than typical; really feelin’ what you bringin’ ta this track, Lee!! My Rating: 4.7


16. “Uh Huh” Feat. Young Shine & Shell (Young Thugga)
Lookin’ like a great collab; always got room fa some Shell, ya dig?! >>> Ironic dat Shell smokin’ a blunt iz on my background, right now, as it randomly changes every 30 minutes. He sounds good on tha hook…; “uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, uh huh!!” LOL @ tha 1st verse wit you; likin’ tha anger!! “Shit no;” perfect rejection for tha ones dat want “shit yea,” lol! Young Shine of tha Short Bus Boyz iz on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some good/aight gutta shit… “Shit” yea, Shell’s actually spittin’ a verse (3rd verse) and he sounds pretty serious and to-tha-point wit this shit! Glad he contributed a verse for this song and anotha appearance on your mixtape, Mr. Banks! My Rating: 4.5


17. “Hands Off Me” (Level, Lil’ Mista & Lee Banks)
Good collab… >>> Really nice start wit tha beat and start, so far! Heard only a sample but this tha full thang and it’s pretty serious, once again; thanx for tha 1st verse, Level, whether you’re too cocky or not! LOL, keepin’ tha Easy Hustle Entertainment fam comin’ along, Mista’s up next, comin’ through wit a hyped-up verse! Sounds more like how he’d act on a single or somethin’… LOL, you sound a lil’ funny on tha 3rd verse. ROFL, comin’ through descriptive wit your “dick,” lol; explicit and descriptive rhymes are usually tha best for sex songs, ya dig? It’s much betta than tha typical “hoes on my dick” or “I fucked your gurl,” right? My Rating: 4.5


18. “Cold Blooded (G-Mix)”
Looks pretty serious… >>> Good street song/mix; I like tha short length, too. Definitely gotta feel tha way you be comin’ through in a serious way! My Rating: 4.3


19. “Murder (G-Mix)”
Anotha title that’s serious! >>> Beat sounds like it could be somethin’ serious fa tha 225! Also, you got tha short-but-sweet length, as well as tha kick-ass shit you’re bringin’ to tha G-table, lol! My Rating: 4.1


20. “Act A Fool (G-Mix)”
Time ta end it… >>> LOL, you and tha “How Ya Do That” shit goin’ on; interestin’… Once again, anotha quick length and some tight shit you droppin’! Even though this was just a mixtape of mainly you, I was expectin’ dat Ready would be on here? Sorry, Young Ready; you’ll be unReadyless in tha future, lol. But, good job wit tha rhymes, as always! My Rating: 4.3


Overall: Good job wit your five-star-rated CD; thumbs up fa tha features and all dat good shit! Happy ‘early’ birthday ta Level; his birthday’ll mark four years since I found $200, which iz one of a few national lottery ticket holidays I have during each year!
