My final review of 2011: FrankieThaLuckyDog Presents Tha Louisiana Archives Vol. 8: Cold On Tha Mic (Hosted by FrankieThaLuckyDog)! Start Time: 11:26 PM | End Time: 11:45 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. “Reputations On The Line”
Looks like a good title… >>> Thought this was gonna be an album, but because I heard DJ Chill in tha beginning, it’s obviously a mixtape. Damn, when will I hear an album soo—oh yea, Young Bleed’s Preserved was prolly tha previous album I heard, but I’m not sure when I gon hear anotha one… As far as this, I was gonna do a live review of this CD, but I don’t have close-to enough time fa dat (I charge $100 for requested, live reviewz, by tha way). This joint sounds like it has a good intro, here, wit some great lyrics, and a continuously-consistent beat that keeps goin’! Rhymes were real good but tha hook’s pretty cheesy; no need for tha voice, here. Tha 2nd verse sounds good; “orange juice … lean,” lol! My Rating: 4.2


02. “Trap Girl”
>>> Even has tha blendin’/mixin’/drops like a mixtape, smh. This can also be Vol. 1 of tha I Don’t Know What 2 Call It series. Some of tha lyrics, here, seem like conversations brought up; nothin’ special wit tha lyrics, but tha song’s okay, for itself. Wait a second, wasn’t this ‘pose ta be about a “trap girl”? Where are tha lyrics for tha ladies? Finally, tha 2nd ½ of tha 1st verse; took too long? My Rating: 3.8


03. “Never Change”
>>> If there’s all this mixin’ goin’ on wit these songs, I don’t see them hittin’ my radio show, smh. I should be able to get no DJ versions of these songs, especially since you posted my All Or Nuthin’ (The Mixtape) review on your MySpace, back in September 2008; I’m much more talented, now! Beat’s pretty nice and tha lyrics are good, here… Voice’s a lil’ gay on tha hook (just a tad) but it’s catchy; won’t be too mean… My Rating: 3.8


04. “Empire”
>>> Beat’s real nice, here; I can sense an anthem! Once again, lyrics and deliveries are good; nothin’ really else ta say, though… My Rating: 4.1


05. “They Can Hate” Feat. Max Minelli
>>> I like how some of these beats just have keys that keep goin’ and goin’…; tha hook sounds pretty catchy, here. I have ta say, good lyrics goin’ on, once again; I dunno about tha 4:13 length on a ‘mixtape’… As for Max Minelli’s contribution, it’s pretty good, The Leak style. My Rating: 4.0


06. “Play It How It Go” Feat. Young Bleed
Speakin’ of Bleed, here he iz… >>> Beat’s hot, here; reminds me of tha All Or Nuthin’ dayz of ’08, where I first got ta consistently hear you! Good job wit tha hook and combination of Young Bleed helpin’ you out on it, too! Bleed’s on tha 1st verse, too, comin’ through wit dat tight shit! Of course, he comes through wit that good, hood shit, and it works out 2x betta wit you, Gates! I know Bleed’ll come through wit things, at least, ‘cause he writes me back on things, no matter when it was! He wrote me back to a review in 2008; he just wrote me back to anotha review yesterday! Goes to show you how real he iz, as well as havin’ good stamina ta keep shit goin’! You’re on tha 2nd verse, and it sounds good; nice job wit tha tight-ass, consistent lyrics/content!! Interestin’ lyrics comin’ outta tha 3rd verse, here, too! My Rating: 4.4


07. “Back Home” Feat. Malachi
>>> No “I’m straight wit tracks, cousin” tag part in tha Guss tag? Anyway, scary hook; no need to comment anymore on it! Rather hear him sound like he did on tha Max Minelli Heart Of A King album. Good job wit tha lyrics, again, but interest iz low, thanx to dat hook! LOL @ tha “masturbatin’!” My Rating: 3.5


½time: A 4.0-rated CD, currently; that’s good, but I reviewed so many CDs that were better!


08. “Respect”
>>> Really likin’ tha start, here, wit tha Jamaican voice! Also, sounds like you own a castle or somethin’ wit these lyrics about owning! Funny vocals, here; definitely feelin’ ‘em!! LOL, “you know, tha dick stay hot;” “hot”? Weird, but I guess people’ll let it slide, since it’s you? Odd… Sounds like a lotta yada-yada, at times, so it’s kinda blah, blah… My Rating: 4.3


09. “Love You”
>>> Censored “fuck” in tha hook? Not good; sounds kinda soft… Tha beat iz on-point, but this iz, like, weird rap for me, wit tha hook. At least, tha verses have a lil’ bit of some shit goin’ on; not bad, overall… My Rating: 3.6


10. “Thuggin’ Hard”
>>> Sounds like a DJ Khaled/Wayne-type beat (my bad for includin’ those names; they’re too mainstream for my reviewz). I would call this a good street anthem, based off tha music and how you bringin’ your energetic rhymes to tha table. A “money” song? “Ugh,” iz right! When are you gonna do services wit me? Also, tha golden question: When are you comin’ to “Tha Louisiana Pit”? I’ve been Facebook and tweetin’ you, but no response? Weird… My Rating: 4.0


11. “In Da Building” Feat. Max Minelli
>>> Nice beat start; weird hook goin’ on, here… Well, tha 1st ½ of it; I like tha character goin’ on in tha 2nd ½ of it. Damn, anotha “money” reference? Sounds like a tight 1st verse wit you and your rapidness!! Wow, it ain’t close ta endin’; you just keep this hot shit goin’!! Now, time fa some Max Minelli on tha 2nd verse… A lot slower wit tha flow, but there’s still character—his character! Good job from tha both of y’all, here! My Rating: 4.4


12. “Nothing Change”
Not long on tha length, so I hope I look forward… >>> Beat sounds jammin’, here, as well as consistent. Tha rhymes are aight; typical shit from you… My Rating: 3.7


13. “It Shows”
>>> Again, anotha typical Gates song, only this iz a lil’ betta; I feel tha consistent rhymes, and tha hook sounds nice. My Rating: 3.9


14. “No Regrets”
>>> Weakest production on this mixtape, so far; let’s see how long I gon deal wit dis… I have ta say, glad you keep “a seatbelt on;” people are hella gay for not havin’ ‘em on! I feel like, if people don’t have “a seatbelt on,” it feels like you can move too much in tha car. Well, tha hook ain’t too bad, but I’m not really into this pop-rap production… My Rating: 3.6


15. “Do You”
This iz it… >>> Not sure what to expect wit tha start… Feelin’ tha fast rhymes; beat doesn’t sound like it’s Louisiana, or Baton Rouge-soundin’, so it’s kinda like an identity crisis for me. It sounds a lil’ R&B, too, which iz a lil’ weird for me. Tha fast lyrics are good and they continue ta deliver… My Rating: 4.1


Overall: Barely passed tha mark of bein’ a good CD for me than decent. Most of these songs I didn’t have a good heart attack for, but they had good quality. Most importantly, I’m glad you’re outta jail!

Time ta review Stick Alley Boyz Club Hitz; Lil’ P.A. iz in tha buildin’ wit this one… Start Time: 1:22 PM | End Time: 1:36 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. “Jigg’n Lik A Pro (Clean)” (Lil’ Rivers, Young Thugga & Drako)
Clean? Iz tha dirty version on here? *Checks* No; shit! Where’s tha “A” in tha title? >>> What’s up wit tha baby in tha beginning? Yea, I gon put an “A” in tha title. This iz pretty good, although tha hook sounds like white rap music… Definitely 0% lyrical, here, but it goes for a jam… My Rating: 3.7


02. “Oh Dey Like These (Clean)” (Young Thugga Feat. Lil’ P.A.)
Anotha clean version? Guess it’s good for tha radio show… >>> Oh no, gayness wit tha beat tag of Lil’ P.A. in tha beginning! Why can’t that whole thing be taken out tha song? Should be considered, “fuck, shit, shit, fuck;” you know, like, cussin’! Hook sounds a lil’ cool wit tha mysterious voice, on tha 1st ½ of it, and it still sounds good. Whoa, what’s up wit all tha “swag” shit in tha 2nd verse? I’d be more ashamed ta talk about that than tabs; learn!! Definitely a horrible 2nd verse; glad I’m not born in tha ‘90s! Lil’ P.A. ain’t too bad on tha 3rd—“goose in my cup”? I think I betta end this song, right now; I don’t buy teenage drinkin’! My Rating: 3.6


03. “Sickest In The Town (Clean)” (Grizey Feat. Neno & Lil’ P.A.)
>>> No, not a different beat tag—NO BEAT TAG!!! I feel like people are hella insecure if they gotta use a beat tag to tell their person they produced it. I don’t use beat tags; why can’t people be different? Beat has cool sounds, here, but tha vibe iz so boring; where’s tha energy? My Rating: 3.5


04. “She Act’n Bad (Clean)” (Lil’ P.A. Feat. Young Thugga)
My Current Rating: 3.9


05. “Rollin’ All Week (Clean)” (Lil’ P.A. Feat. Drako & Lady Di)
My Current Rating: 4.4


½time: Wow, only a 3.8 for tha CD rating? That’s good, but not tha excitement I expected…


06. “I Gotchu (Clean)” (Drako, Neno & Junior)
>>> How sour! Junior = Lil’ Junior, or someone else? Not for me… My Rating: 2.7


07. “Let Me Rock, Let Me Roll” (Young Thugga & Lil’ P.A.)
My Current Rating: 4.0


08. “My Baby Girl” (Young Thugga Feat. Grizey & Lil’ P.A.)
>>> I don’t like this beat tag, either. Plus, why iz this beat on a soft level? There’s some okay sounds, but even if you gotta use a beat tag (uh, I wanna throw up when I say, “beat tag;” where in tha fuck did dat shit start? How? When?!), at least make sure it’s a tight one, not sour or soft… Well, hearin’ it on tha verses and it’s okay, wit a lil’ slow tip. Tha rhymes are aight, but they’re soft! My Rating: 3.2


09. “Off Da Meter” (Lil’ P.A., Young Thugga, Stick Alley Red & Joy-Joy)
My Current Rating: 4.3


10. “Swagg On Maxx” (Lady Di)
>>> Fuck-to-tha-fuck-to-tha-fuck-to-tha-fuck!!! That 1st beat tag!!! Bad enough I had ta see dis dumb word, “swag,” in tha title; so far from my generation! No feedback; at least it ain’t a dude, though! My Rating: 1.7


11. “Throw A Stack” (Grizey, Drako & Lil’ P.A.)
>>> That fuckin’ beat tag again; why all tha insecurities? Insecurities!! Nearly every song on my iPod does not have a beat tag in it!! This ain’t that bad of a song, but what’s a “stack” ta you? Tell me tha truth! I neva had “a stack” ‘til I was in college! My Rating: 3.6


Overall: Hmm, not how I expected; only three songs were 4.0s or higher? Prolly gotta lay off tha typical, 2010s bullshit content that every single rapper talks about in every single song that comes out!


Rankings:

11. “Swagg On Maxx” 1.7
10. “I Gotchu” 2.7
09. “My Baby Girl” 3.2
08. “Sickest In The Town” 3.5
07. “Oh Dey Like These” 3.6
06. “Throw A Stack” 3.6
05. “Jigg’n Lik A Pro” 3.7

Link To CD: Lady Cam - Lady Cam - Lady Of The Hour Hosted by Dj Slim E Dj Titanic // Free Mixtape @ DatPiff.com


01. Intro – Lady Of The Hour
>>> Good intro! My Rating: N/A


02. “Aadias On”
Two “A”s in tha beginning? >>> “Nike Boots” beat, so I’m expectin’ some jacked beats? Rhymes are only decent for me; nothin’ special, and iz a part of that identity crisis shit, where everyone sounds tha same, no matter where they’re from. My Rating: 2.7


03. I’m Beamin’ Drop
>>> Damn, came through so fast! My Rating: N/A



04. “I’m Beamin’”
>>> Damn, 4:53 on tha length? Really boring start, even though your singin’ ain’t bad… Tha hook sounds a lil’ betta. Nothin’ really special for me, but not bad wit tha rappin’, either. My Rating: 3.1


05. “Dear”
>>> LOL, despite soundin’ like an East Coast song, I’m likin’ this one; how odd… It sounds like you’re deliverin’ some good rhymes; nice job. My Rating: 3.7


06. “Don’t Like Me”
>>> Sounds like a jacked beat, plus a Game sample? Unexpected, lol. As for tha song, it’s okay; that’s about it. My Rating: 3.3


07. “Get It, Got It”
Title looked familiar; put it on my radio show, and you kick ass, here! My Current Rating: 4.4


08. Lady Of The Hour Drop
>>> “7th project released”? Nice job! My Rating: N/A


09. “I Gets Crazy”
>>> Sounds like “I Get Money”, a lil’ bit… Really mainstream for me, but I like your consistent rhymes, a lil’ bit… My Rating: 3.8


10. Lady Cam Drop 2
>>> Gotta keep them shout outs and supporters comin’ along! My Rating: N/A


11. “I Go Hard”
>>> Beat iz 0% interestin’ and doesn’t sound like Louisiana, but tha rhymes are aight… Either way, 3:36 on tha length? My Rating: 3.0


12. “Let Me Down”
Anotha over-three-minute joint. >>> Beat’s weak; rhymes are aight… My Rating: 3.2


13. FrankieThaLuckyDog Drop
No spaces in my name; lol, “tha” only has a space, lol? Lemme re-hear it… >>> Sounds great; I delivered a great message!! Surprised me when it came on outta nowhere! My Rating: N/A


14. “Ready Or Not”
>>> LOL, I’m still leadin’ into tha song! Tha 2nd ½ of tha important drop! Well, anotha remake, here, which iz only decent…; lyrics sound good, though. My Rating: 3.1


15. “Spittin’ 1”
Iz dat “1” in tha title? >>> Nice and short; good freestylin’, even though tha beat’s ehh… My Rating: 3.6


½time: A 3.4-rated CD, currently; nothin’ terrible, but mainly, nothin’ special, though.


16. “Spittin’ 2”
Oh, I see, now! >>> This sounds betta; you sound a lil’ like Missy Elliott, lol! Good job wit tha consistency!! Oh no, soundin’ like Nicki Minaj toward tha end… My Rating: 4.2


17. Lady Of The Hour Drop 2
>>> Didn’t I just hear this? My Rating: N/A


18. “Summer”
>>> Beat’s nothin’ good at all, but you got good lyrics… My Rating: 3.3


19. “Sunshine”
>>> No interest in tha beat, again, but better lyrics, this time. My Rating: 3.3


20. “Tear The Club Up”
>>> LOL, what’s wit tha recycled talking/intros? Speakin’ of recycled, not really into hearin’ sampled lyrics in tha hook, 2011 style… Either way, this iz tha most energy you’ve brought to this mixtape, aside from tha 4.4-rated song! My Rating: 3.6



21. “Think About It”
>>> What’s wit tha echoed words? Didn’t like when they did that on Lil’ Phat’s Late 2009 mixtape. What’s that gay-ass a-tune in tha beginning? I usually say, “sounds like dick-on-dick suckin’,” but I can agree that it sounds like pussy-on-pussy/tits-on-tits suckin’, too! Interest went down ta under-10% once I heard it… Lyrics are in tha 2010s generation wit this “swag” shit and all dat; beat’s a lil’ poppy, too… Tha hook ain’t too bad, though. My Rating: 2.3


22. “Too Many”
>>> This sounds like a ‘90s female, here… I really like all these “too many” lines; creative! My Rating: 4.1


23. Lady Cam Outtro
Two “T”s? Seven songs are left… >>> Real talkin’, finally… My Rating: N/A


24. “O.W.N.”
>>> Boring, typical shit in tha 2010s, but thumbs up fa tha consistent, fast rhymes!! My Rating: 3.5


25. “Baby Baby”
>>> Even though I wouldn’t expect it, tha start sounds hot… Tha hook sounds like a turn-on, here; “ooh, baby, baby!” Rhymes are on-n-poppin’, too; lol @ all my positives, outta nowhere! My Rating: 4.0


26. “Mary Mary”
Anotha double-word title. >>> Bad start, but your Jamaican-type vocals are hot, here! Great consistency, even though I like tha “Baby Baby” joint betta! My Rating: 3.9


27. “Lady Like”
>>> No for tha beat style, but once again, great, consistent rhymes! My Rating: 4.1


28. “You Got Me”
>>> Another boring start… A lil’ on tha R&B side, here…; sounds like Wayne/Drake-flown rhymes, that creates tha identity crisis in hip-hop we’re livin’ in, right now, so I don’t have much interest… My Rating: 2.6


29. “Tribute To Female MCs”
>>> Anotha good East Coast turnout for you, here; glad you givin’ a “tribute to tha ladies!” R.I.P. Sheen~Marie; uncalled-for beat-and-burned murder! My Rating: 3.7


30. “Tribute To Heavy D” Feat. DJ Quik & Young Dolo
I dunno about Tha Fixxers as a listed feature; kinda a turnoff ‘cause it’s not real? >>> Beat sounds annoyin’, but tha rhymes are good; this ain’t you… Oh, you’re toward tha end; good job. My Rating: 3.6


Overall: I really thank you guys for gettin’ in touch wit me, to be a part of this project. However, I thought it was just decent. Tha near-end picked up, but for tha most part, just decent; nothin’ special.

01. “Hater”
Looks like a familiar title? Not in my iTunes so it should be new for me. >>> Sounds like some really tight shit!! Definitely feelin’ tha hook, wit dat great-ass voice of K-Chill’s!! You really got shit goin’ on in tha 1st verse, too; such a gorilla at its finest!! LOL @ tha “get up off me;” goin’ wit tha back cover wit tha correct titles, so it’s not “Haters”, it’s “Hater”. Real glad I edited your song wit U.N.L.V.; it was 207 edits, but it goes to show you I know what I’m doin’! My Rating: 4.7


02. Interlude
LOL, so fast! >>> Oh, tha Gorillaville Records lil’ drop thing! My Rating: N/A


03. “Conan”
Finally, time ta hear this! What iz this word? >>> Energetic start; gotta luv it!! Whateva this new word iz, it’s equivalent to tha ‘dumbs’, ‘duffys’, ‘Boosies’, etc.! Ooh, really luvin’ tha beginning of tha 1st verse, since it’s taken from “Somethin’ In Da Air” from Beat Flippa, Tank Jones, Derty & Nu$$ (tha “fuck you, and you, and you, and you…”)!! You keep tha shit on-n-poppin’, too; gotta luv it!! Keep chantin’, and chantin’, and chantin’ to tha crowd!! LOL, I’m lookin’ at tha file you sent me of tha song, and lol, it has a comma in it, just like tha file that came from DatPiff! LOL, funny that you used tha same file; goes to show you that exclusive feelings can come out, and I really appreciate it! You definitely tearin’ it up on tha 2nd verse, here; Killa-Chill, I should call you, lol? LOL, 10 seconds of silence! My Rating: 4.6


04. “Who Wanna Fight”
ROFL @ “wonna” on tha filename; they don’t know how to spell, high-school virgins! I think I knew how ta spell that word since I was startin’ ta spell! >>> Gotta luv tha beginning/hook; you know what it iz, K-Chill!! LOL, Lil’ Jon adlibs in tha background wit tha “put yo click up;” good job ta jump a decade back to a decade ahead, here! Great job wit tha 1st verse, here, Chill; tha energy doesn’t stop!! As you tell me, “[I] can go away for a whole year, and my consistency’ll still show,” I feel tha same way wit you, in a way. Am I tha hardest-workin’ dude out there? No matter what time it iz, I’m doin’… …somethin’!! Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty tight, too; unstoppable tightness ova such a great beat!!! DJ Titanik iz nominated for Louisiana Producer Of Tha Year on my 4th Annual Louisiana Awards of 2011; will he win? I know he really holds Opelousas and Gorillaville down to tha bone!!! My Rating: 4.6


05. “Shake A Hater Off”
Anotha “hater” song, lol; only you can pull this same-title shit off! >>> This sounds just as tight as tha previous “Hater” song, only I think I might like this a lil’ more! Tha beat’s real hot, and tha hook’s definitely on-n-poppin’!! You doin’ tha damn thang on tha 1st verse, here, Chill!! I think you might have one or two nominees on my upcoming awards, too!! Some of your Opelousas patnaz have nominees, too; real exciting for it to air on YouTube on December 31, 2011! LOL, here you are, on tha 2nd verse, “already fucked [this girl]!” LOL, an unstoppable K-Chill at its finest!! At its finest!!! I like how most of these jointz are short, and not hella long! I hate when people have boring/only decent songs that are, like, 4:00 – 5:40 on tha length; so gay!! My Rating: 4.7


06. “Call The Ambulance”
Such crazy titles goin’ on, here; you neva play when it comes ta yo shit!!!!! >>> Almost reminds me of Busta Rhymes’s song w/Flipmode Squad from 2002/2003, wit tha same title? Of course, this iz tha Opelousas perspective that sounds real tight, wit tha craziness!!! As always, tha beat’s on fire!! LOL, mysterious voices that sound like Nu$$ie on tha 1st verse, durin’ tha 3rd, 4th, 7th, 8th, 11th & 12th bars? It wasn’t Nu$$, but whoeva it was, they sounded great to be inserted into tha song ta give you agreein’ feelings!! “Heated like a torch;” definitely tha way ta come through on tha 2nd verse!! “Bucked up and fucked up;” anotha line you can get away wit! Everyone can repeat tha line and be repetitive, but when you come wit it, I have ta feel it ‘cause you tha truth!! Anotha song wit two verses; really consistent wit tha non-boring formula!!!!! My Rating: 4.7


½time: Real crazy, right here!!! A 4.7-rated CD, currently; you always bring tha best heat, K-Chill!!!!!!! Stay alive!!!!!


07. Interlude
LOL, again! >>> LOL, it’s like tha same one, almost, only wit a “it ain’t a monkey on ya back, it’s a gorilla, bitch!” My Rating: N/A


08. “Thugged Out”
!!! >>> Supa consistent from tha word, “go!” Damn, K-Chill, how much energy do you have?! Tha 1st verse iz official; luv how tha beat sounds durin’ tha end of tha 1st verse!!! You really keep shit goin’, and goin’, and goin’, and goin’!!! I gotta take a shit (only ‘cause my feet get cold, almost everyday in tha Winter), right now, but gonna hold it in ‘cause your shit I don’t wanna interrupt!! Good job wit tha 2nd verse, too; you gotta keep it movin’!! LOL, wit tha length, I expected a 3rd verse, but you don’t need one; you make tha last minute of tha song be fulla tha hook and nothin’ but chantin’!!! My Rating: 4.8


09. “News Flash” Feat. Ned (Get Live Clique)
Uh oh, some K-Chill “news”!! >>> Real hot, although it sounds like Delwin The Krazyman? Maybe, I will try and think tha opposite and think that Delwin sounds like you, instead, since you’re a lot older than him and have been in tha game longer!! Plus, you keep tha club goin’, and goin’, and goin’, and goin’!!! Either way, tight-ass hook, of course!! Who can’t go nuts ta dis shit?!? Tha 1st verse iz pretty tight as fuck!! You got your “tanktop” on and err-thang; talk about a huge-ass gorilla, like yourself!!! Of course, tha beat don’t stop bein’ hot as fuck; can’t deny this shit!!! You already know, this shit’s real nice on tha 2nd verse, too; thumbs-tha-fuck-up!!! LOL, finally, a 3rd verse, and it’s a not-sourced artist?

This next review, which iz Gar & B.G. Loyalty Is Royalty (Hosted by DJ 5150 & DJ Hektik), iz not CD eligible? Why iz it 1:53:02? Guess it sold 0 copies in tha streetz, smh?! But, Billionaire Mafia Entertainment/Chopper City Records in tha buildin’ wit this one! Start Time: 8:36 AM End Time: 9:15 AM


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.

Link To CD: Gar & B.G. - Loyalty Is Royalty - DJ 5150, DJ Hektik


01. Intro / “G.A.”
>>> Good intro; that’s DJ 5150 (tha 2nd dude’s voice), lol? Now, let’s see tha song… Sounds like a soft, Lloyd song? I thought this was a hard mixtape, not a soft one? Nothin’ really to comment; too soft! My Rating: 2.8


02. “Chopper City”
>>> Sounds real tight wit tha beat and tha hook! Rhymes are hella consistent wit Gar, here!! No B.G., lol? Guess it worked out real good for just Gar ‘cause tha 2nd verse was really on-n-poppin’, too!! My Rating: 4.6


03. “U Can Bleed Too” Feat. Skip & C-Murder
>>> Nice shit from Skip in tha 1st verse; why iz he last in tha ID? Good shit from C-Murder, at its finest, “too”!! Gar’s holdin’ shit down on tha 3rd verse, almost soundin’ like Max Minelli, here, which sounds tight, once again!! My Rating: 4.5


04. “Face Up”
>>> Ooh, an X-Fyle beat! Finally, some B.G., comin’ through wit some good, 31-year-old-type street shit, here! Good job wit havin’ Gar on this, too! Gotta luv tha collaboration he has wit Shell (Young Thugga) “Face Shots”! My Rating: 4.3


05. “Same Ol’ Shit” Feat. VL Mike
>>> Thought it was gonna be tha Magnolia Boyz joint fa a second, lol. Sounds like a soft song wit tha beginning, but I hear tha beat kickin’ in, once B.G. starts tha 1st verse… Good shit from him, still, and Gar has a nice 2nd verse… Damn, this iz 5:15? Way too long… B.G. has a much-betta 3rd verse goin’ on—oh wait, that’s Gar, lol; my bad for tha confusion, but it sounds hella tight wit tha fastness!! Wait a second, fuckin’ unsourced people? Who tha fuck are they?! LOL, tha only one I know iz VL Mike on tha last verse; lol, how random, but tight! My Rating: 4.0


06. “Gutta Gutta”
>>> Sounds like it gon be a good weed anthem? Yea, sounds good wit B.G. on tha 1st verse; consistent rhymin’ goin’ on… Tha hook says it all: “gutta as a muthafucka;” right! Good shit, somewhat, from Gar on tha 2nd verse, here… Nice and smooth lil’ 3rd verse from B.G., here; keep tha rhymes goin’!! My Rating: 4.2


07. “So 504”
Ain’t dat so?! >>> Really likin’ tha anthemic beat, as well as tha hook! Good shit from B.G. on tha 1st verse, representin’ at all times! “I got money now;” huh? You’ve been in tha game for almost two decades, Gizzle! What, nothin’ back then? Glad ta hear Gar on tha 2nd verse; you know what it iz wit dis! Glad ta hear some shit dat originated in tha streetz! My Rating: 4.5


08. “My Hood” Feat. Mannie Fresh
Hella old!!! Hate ’09!! No need to bring it back; I’m no longer a giving-idiot! My Current Rating: 3.8


09. “Walk With Me”
>>> Sounds decent, and almost reminds me of bein’ old, like tha last joint. B.G. sounds decent on tha 1st verse; lol @ tha gangsta lyrics… I like tha hook; sounds catchy for a mainstream song, even though I might’ve heard this before? All B.G. verses, here; okay, overall… My Rating: 3.8


10. “Choppers, 9’s & 40’s”
>>> Oh no, not jacked beats, especially from tha turned-into-gayland 2010! Whether I heard it or not, sounds consistent. My Rating: 4.0


11. “All Eyes On Me”
>>> “K.I. Dub on tha track”? Iz that K.I. Double? Interestin’ beat, though; definitely feelin’ it! Good job from B.G., as he comes through wit tha consistent rhymes! Good job from Gar, too; can’t deny tha 2nd verse! LOL, gotta end it wit Gizzle, comin’ through as tha “neighborhood supastar!” My Rating: 4.4


12. “I C U Ridin’ Homie”
No, it’s “ridin’”, not “riden”; smh @ people wit their “en” thinkin’ of words! >>> Okay wit tha Jeezy sample; not sure how people songs wit samples are, these dayz; kinda a fad? Beat’s pretty hot, includin’ how B.G. holds it down on tha 1st verse, wit his consistentness. Of course, gotta have Gar on tha 2nd verse; “black” everythang, lol? LOL! My Rating: 4.2


13. “Slippin’” Feat. Bonka
Bonka of Da Goonz on tha feature!!! Whoo!!! He freestyled on my latest mixtape, as well as doin’ a separate freestyle on my “ScrEEchin’ Crawfish” segment of my “Tha Louisiana Pit” undaground radio show! Definitely lookin’ forward ta dis!! >>> Really likin’ tha beat, as it has some foreign country/Egyptian-type sounds goin’ on!! Whoa, there’s a bunch of hot sounds goin’ on, here!! Tha hook’s pretty nice; thumbs up fa creatin’ some shit like dis!! Definitely not “slippin’” when it comes ta deliverin’ nothin’ but tha best!! Gar does a nice job wit tha great hook, and B.G. does a great job deliverin’ tha 1st verse, in an anti-“slippin’” perspective! Hearin’ Gar rap on tha 2nd verse, and it’s good… good. LOL, Bonka was high as fuck when he freestyled for me, so I can only imagine how many blunts he had when he knew he was gonna collaborate wit y’all, lol! Sounds like some serious shit he spittin’ on tha 3rd verse; gotta luv his voice, and I’m glad he came through wit his tightness!! My Rating: 4.7


14. “Colder”
Not “softer”, I hope. >>> Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaatttttttttt iiiiiiiizzzzzzzzzzzz thhiiiiiiiiissssss Drake beat?! Makin’ feedback quick… Sounds good/aight, but why this beat? I could’ve sworn I was listenin’ to undaground music! My Rating: 3.3


½time: A 4.1-rated CD; real nice job, here, wit dis shit! Was surprised ta hear Bonka; definitely gave this some excitement, and y’all got some nice collaborations, here!


15. “The Real Is Back” Feat. Benzino
Benzino, tha white dude that had a song in 2002, a while ago? Or, am I trippin’, and forgot that Benzino was on a few mixtapes, previously? >>> Sounds good; nothin’ much ta say, here, except tha really hot beat in tha hook. My Rating: 4.1


16. “Lose My Mind”
>>> Sounds famil—no, not anotha jacked beat! A lil’ catchy for a remake, but whateva; it’s betta than tha “Colder” one! My Rating: 3.7


17. “’Bout That”
>>> Sounds like a song I heard before, but you already know, this iz tight, too, especially this continuous, “I’m ‘bout that” hook! My Rating: 4.3


18. “U See Why”
>>> A lil’ soft, even though it has a street vibe to it wit tha lyrics…; what’s up wit tha long-ass lengths? My Rating: 3.5


19. “Set It Off”
>>> LOL, jacked beat but it’s okay for a remake… My Rating: 3.6


20. “’Bout This Grindin’”
Nooooo, not these gay-ass ’09 dayz, again!! I’ll admit, I did a bunch of ‘free’, faggy things in that year! I’m glad I learned betta!! My Current Rating: 4.5


21. “Make It Official”
>>> Beat’s nothin’ special, but tha rhymes are pretty good… My Rating: 3.6


22. “Batt’em Up” Feat. Red
LOL, tha feature’s listed, this time? >>> A lil’ long for a mixtape, but whateva… Okay wit tha good rhymes, although tha hook seems to make tha highlight, as I hear a lil’ bit of G-Funk goin’ on, in tha beat! Nice job wit tha collaboration; keep this shit up! My Rating: 4.2


23. “Don’t Wanna Be Without You” Feat. Real
Somebody’s named “Real”, smh? Prolly could’ve had a different name? Also, “without”, not “with out”, smh. >>> Sounds like a jam; this one’s too long, too… This sounds like an old school vibe, which sounds good; likin’ these soundin’-like late ‘90s, early ‘00s rhymes, even though tha joint’s only decent, overall, for me. My Rating: 3.9


24. “Stalkin’”
LOL. >>> Anotha good vibe like tha previous song, includin’ a melody! LOL, smh @ tha people that try ta “stalk” me; glad I don’t have ta be there fa everyone! Good job wit tha consistent verses; anti-“stalkin’” point of view, here! My Rating: 4.3


25. “Bust A Move”
>>> A smooth vibe, here, that’s not soft, but good…; nice shit, here, Gizzle. Tha hook’s pretty smooth, here; likin’ what Gar’s bringin’ to tha table, too. LOL @ all this “suck dat dick” shit; you really goin’ at ‘em, in a tauntin’ way, Gizzle! My Rating: 4.1


26. “Whateva U Like”
>>> Some mainstream sound, here; think it sounds good, almost like a follow-up single. Mysterious female singin’ on tha hook? Nice triple combo, though! Gizzle strippin’ down ta please tha ladies, here, lol. My Rating: 3.8


27. “Keep It Real” Feat. Alfamega
An ATL collaboration here, P$C style… >>> Gotta luv tha “wuzzam” intro!! Gizzle, you a classic fool fa dat!! Feelin’ tha hook; has a lil’ bit of a T.I. “Big Things Poppin’” feel to it (I assume Mannie Fresh produced this?), even though I shouldn’t be bringin’ up those gay-ass ’07 times! Sounds like this joint would have good memories or somethin’, in tha future, just like every single song I heard in 2008?! Gar did a nice job on tha 2nd verse, here; feelin’ how he comes through fa tha streetz wit his hidden energy! Alfamega sounds hella tight on tha 3rd verse, bringin’ back some great-soundin’ ATL shit! Good job wit this collaboration; really luvin’ tha consistency goin’ on, here!! My Rating: 4.6


28. “50 Rules”
>>> Almost reminds me of Max Minelli in tha beginning; how Gartastic, if you say so, lol! More “G.A.” reppin’ goin’ on? How ‘bout, “504, 504, 504, 504, 504, 504…,” instead? Beat’s definitely jammin’, here; nice job wit comin’ through wit this shit, courtesy of Gar takin’ this joint ova, in tha beginning! No need fa Gizzle, here; it’s all about Gar!! Glad he holdin’ tha whole joint down! My Rating: 4.3


29. “Gunz N Roses (Free B.G.)”
LOL, interestin’ title ta end this mixtape… >>> Sounds like an identity crisis wit tha production, here, but it’s still pretty good. Once again, Gar holdin’ this whole joint down, doin’ a nice job wit tha streetz, here, and his hidden voice, lol! My Rating: 4.2


Overall: Even though way too long of a mixtape, this was definitely tight shit! No skits, just music, lol! Good job, guys; my dude P.I.R. told me B.G. might get 40 years (be 71 years-old by tha time he gets outta jail)? Sad, but people need to be more alert!

01. “Hoodstar”
Produced by DJ BlaqNMild (I always forget how to exactly stylize his name). Looks like a familiar title? Looks like it’s in my iTunes already, only this iz featureless. My Current Rating: 4.4


02. “Dopeman”
Blaq N Mild again! >>> I think this iz a newbie fa me; once again, sounds like anotha anthem. My Rating: 4.2


03. “That’s My Bitch”
Blaq N Mild… >>> Kinda like 50/50 for me; not really 100% my style, since it sounds automatic/cocky, but it has a lil’ bit of some good shit goin’ on from Blaq on tha beat… My Rating: 3.7


04. “My Balls & My Word” Feat. Roca B
Production from Street King. Previously heard; why no features listed? This iz featurin’ Roca B! My Current Rating: 4.4


05. “Who Do I Trust”
Blaq on tha beat, again! >>> Good 504, street-type beat from Blaq, here; good shit from you wit tha rhymes, too. Kinda surprised dat you don’t hit me up like crazy, or even have done business wit me, yet; I’m loyal to tha bone! You should be obsessed! My Rating: 4.1


06. “Big Dawg” Feat. Ceto
LOL, a feature listed, this time? Anotha good collaboration, courtesy of Blaq on tha beat, again! My Current Rating: 4.7


07. “Keep It 100”
Looks like an old title, but Blaq N Mild on tha beat… >>> Good; nothin’ much ta say, since it’s like your other anthems… My Rating: 4.2


08. “Uptown” Feat. B.G.
Anotha huge one that’s featured on here; thanx, Blaq, for doin’ a great track!! My Current Rating: 4.6


½time: I think this iz a pretty consistent mixtape, once again; can’t eva stop!! A 4.3-rated mixtape, currently!!!


09. “Mo Money, No Problems”
Street King doin’ his thang on tha beat, still! My Current Rating: 4.2


10. “New Orleans” Feat. Ceto
I believe it’s a.k.a. “Welcome To New Orleans”… My Current Rating: 4.6


11. “Daily Prayer” Feat. Mr. Marcelo & Cutta
? >>> Not really my style; semi-tight, at times, though, and at least there’s good rhymes goin’ on from everyone… Everything sounds like it could be one of tha 2012 big songs in tha streetz, except for some of tha hook’s samp—ah, I’m thinkin’ it’s really catchy, now! My Rating: 4.3


12. “Maintaining” Feat. KIs
Ooh, some drugs on tha feature, lol, as well as a beat from Street King! Oh wait, heard this already! My Current Rating: 4.5


13. “I Gotta Make It”
LOL, goin’ backwards wit tha tracklisting from Ghetto Hero, lol? My Current Rating: 4.4


14. “Superish” Feat. Ceto & Mr. Marcelo
Knew this sounded familiar once tha beat kicked in…; once again, produced by Street King! My Current Rating: 4.3


15. “My Ghetto” Feat. B.G.
Beat Doctor beat! >>> Sounds like regular 504 productions; nothin’ really special… Not too much into tha hook, although it sounds like a good anthem for tha trap starz… Good job from tha both of you guys wit your verses (you, two; B.G., tha 3rd verse), as y’all’re holdin’ it down… My Rating: 3.6


16. “My First Love”
Blaq N Mild beat. >>> Avant/Keke Wyant song in 2011? Not really likin’ that tha hook has a high-pitched, female voice, now; when will producers give dat dumb shit up? Rhymes aight, but nothin’ I’d die for… My Rating: 2.9


17. “I’m On Fire (Bounce Mix)” Feat. Magnolia Shorty
Ooh, I wanna hear it wit Magnolia Shorty on tha feature!! Even, got Blaq on tha beat ta end it off!! >>> Yes, normal, bounce music, finally; sounds consistent and identified, unlike most music today, where tha music world’s an identity crisis: everyone from everywhere has tha same sound!! I hear Magnolia Shorty…; she’s just in tha background? Pretty disappointin’; couldn’t be like Soulja Slim and have, like, words and words in tha hook or somethin’? Nice ending, though; how “on fire” it was, lol! My Rating: 4.5


Overall: A nice lil’ update from tha previous Ghetto Hero, but slightly, in a negative way, since tha average CD rating went down by 1/10. But, good job…

Sounds like it could be a good 2nd single to release in tha mainstream; it would be tha one I wouldn’t feel too much, but it would be good for that ‘follow-up single’. My Rating: 4.0


06. “Husle Ball”
Looks like a catchy title. >>> Shit yea, definitely fa tha huslaz! You really holdin’ it down fa yaself and only yaself wit dis CD; definitely feelin’ your continuous stamina and interest in this rap game! Definitely feelin’ how you sound wit tha rappin’; such a great voice fa dis shit!! My Rating: 4.3


07. “Wut’z Up”
FrankieThaLuckyDog reviewin’ Young Bleed iz “wut’z up,” ya feel me? >>> Sounds like cool, undaground vs. mainstream music for tha production, here. You comin’ through wit tha hook sounds catchy, of course! “Rollin’ up a bleezy;” ain’t dat shit real good, Bleed? I wish I can picture it, right now, lol! Good job, overall, wit this joint; you know what it iz! My Rating: 4.3


08. “From Da City”
Anotha somewhat-long joint; let’s see what we got here. >>> Ooh, a betta beat start; likin’ this! Even got tha “smokin’ weed” shit in tha 1st verse on here, too; glad you cloned a lil’ bit of tha previous song and made it hotter! Glad you “know” so much; seemed like those 33 years you’ve been livin’ has been, like, a preacher, tha whole time? Or, should I say ½ that age; you prolly learned so much by tha time you were 16! I think tha hook sounds hot; yea, I’m definitely “fuckin’ wit [you],” Bleed! Who doesn’t luv a dude like you? Especially, since you’re reppin’ Baton Rouge? Couldn’t’ve pictured it betta! So many blessings come from BR (mainly, people)!! My Rating: 4.4


09. “Wall Uh Fame”
I like these spellings in tha title; you definitely deserve a title like dis! >>> Sounds good…; you got yourself a tribute start, here. Even though you’re not goin’ soon, I know you’ll have a legacy! I hope I can be more involved in your life, when it comes ta this support/business-type shit, ya feel me? LOL @ tha hook; I’m feelin’ how you sound! When I hear it, and see your album cover, it’s like, “No one can fuck wit me, no one can fuck wit me, no one can fuck wit me, no one can fuck wit me!!!!” You’re so independent wit dis rap shit, tha undaground possibly can’t live without you!! My Rating: 4.4


½time: A 4.4-rated CD; you really have shit on lock at all times!!!! You’re so consistent wit it and neva stop!!! Keep up tha real great work, and I hope I get ta show you this, somehow!!!


10. “How Ya Do Dat Again” Feat. Tech N9ne & Brotha Lynch Hung
Oh, a familiar one comin’ outta nowhere? >>> Yea, tha classic, 2011 style! Sounds pretty good, wit a lil’ kick-ass added to tha beat durin’ tha hook! Nice collaboration between Tech N9ne & Brotha Lynch Hung on tha 2nd verse!! This iz an interestin’ family, even though on Wikipedia, I see dat you only sold a lil’ ova 1,000 copies of this CD in tha first week? … Tha 3rd verse iz on-n-poppin’, too; that’s “how ya do dat again,” lol! My Rating: 4.5


11. “Uh Gangsta’s Gangsta”
Catchy title; a car song? >>> Oh, a breed-type of joint? “Uh gangsta’s gangsta,” meanin’, you came from “uh”notha “gangsta”, lol? I think so, but it’s obvious ‘cause you are “uh gangsta!” As for tha song, it sounds like it has a lil’ bit of a mainstream feel to it in tha beat; tha lyrics are pretty unique, even though for a joint wit 4:48 on tha length, it could be a lil’ catchier… Thought I’d like this a lil’ more, but I’ll give credit to tha content. My Rating: 4.0


12. “It’ll Go Down”
>>> Hot start, for tha undaground, wit tha “get tha key” shit; such a Young Bleed mission at its finest, lol! “I’m gettin’ bit on yo ass like Skull Duggery;” glad you gave my boy a shout out!! LOL, he calls me almost everyday, hopin’ ta get out tha pen soon! He checked in, freestyled, and made tha front cover on my new mixtape, Tha Louisiana Archives Vol. 8: Cold On Tha Mic, which you should definitely check out on DatPiff: http://www.datpiff.com/FrankieThaLuckyDog-Tha-Louisiana-Archives-Vol-8-Cold-On-Tha-Mic-mixtape.296411.html
Good job wit this content for tha hood, once again; neva disappointin’ tha dog!! My Rating: 4.4


13. “M.O.E. (Money Over Everything)”
How will you handle a “money” song in tha ‘10s? >>> Sounds catchy; sounds like an anthemic beat for you, here. Nice, laidback-type joint fa tha Gs and true listenerz! My Rating: 4.2


14. “Call The Police”
>>> ROFL, sounds like a damn carnival in tha beat sounds!!!!! LOL, nothin’ but great—oh shit, tha BPMs are fast!!! Damn, double tha bonuses fa me!!! Really feelin’ tha shit you spittin’, here; sooooo many rhymes!!! What made you wanna rap on a song wit… *scans* oh, only 91 BPM? At least it has a fast vibe (thought it would be, like, 128-130 BPM)! Anyway, what made you wanna rap on a fast beat like this? Interestin’ shit, especially wit this topic about “tha police” and shit! Really likin’ tha action on tha hook; whoeva’s singin’ it makes this panicked scene sound even more crazy, lol!! Definitely some catchy lyrics, here; you definitely doin’ a consistent job, Bleed!! My Rating: 4.9


15. “City Uh God”
Let’s see how tha Lord’s name gon make this joint sound/turn out… >>> Now, it sounds like a restaurant wit tha music; settin’ tha mood anywhere, Bleed!! Of course, “blowin’ some doulja;” how can you not luv dat?! When you said tha title, it almost feels like tha ‘90s, where tha rappers say tha title before tha actual hook—which iz usually just a beat—starts; nice job!! LOL, I still like when you say tha N-word 2x in a row (kinda like startin’ anotha sentence right away, lol); good shit, of course!! My Rating: 4.5


16. “Walk Like Uh Husala”
Uh oh, Lil’ Witness on tha feature?! Really lookin’ forward ta dis; tha special #16 songs are back!!! >>> Sounds like a serious beginning and hook; you know this’ll be crazy once Witness touches tha mic!! Damn, Witness ain’t on dis? A Wiki-damn-pedia error; I just fixed it (watch them delete tha fix, smh)! But, I like this shit; nice job, just Bleed, lol! My Rating: 4.4


17. “
Pāpa Pāpa” Feat. Lil’ Witness
Let’s hear tha seriousness of Witness, finally!!!!! >>> Sounds good; didn’t realize it had ta do wit “paypa;” thought it was dedicated to a “Pa”, lol (tha CD’s tracklisting that came up when I ripped it wit my iTunes put tha title as “Papa Papa”, really like a dad, lol)!! This prolly could’ve had tha previous beat, and it would’ve been real nice, but this iz still anticipatin’, too! Kinda forgot that y’all teamed up earlier, in Late 2009/Early 2010, wit “Let Me In”, which definitely was somethin’ serious!! Good shit, but where’s tha Witness?? I don’t get where he was, yet, you introduced him in tha beginning? Iz he in tha background on tha hook? Totally doesn’t sound like him! What a disappointment… again, but you know I like tha song! My Rating: 4.3


18. “Thank Ya” Feat. Chantele Chowder
What kinda endin’ song do we got here? >>> Ooh, am I expectin’ a fast song wit tha beginning beats? Well, not a fast beat but interestin’ sounds, too; tha hook sounds good wit your style, too (see, I didn’t use tha word ‘swag’ ‘cause I was not born in tha ‘90s and don’t follow some of this Late 2000s/2010s-type shit)! I have to say, this iz a decent ending song; someone else would prolly fuck this up, makin’ it sound all depressin’ and shit, but it’s you, so you know you do a nice job! To me, it sounds more like a motivation joint; I feel like it gives me feelings that I’ve come a long way wit my Louisiana support! My Rating: 4.1


Overall: Young Bleed tearin’ it up wit this hot-ass album for tha mainstream!!! Definitely a nice job, especially since tha undaground catz, like myself, can feel this, no matter who’s releasin’ it! Keep up tha great work, bruh; that magical age and year you’re born in!! No wonder you were meant fa this 225-type shit!!
