Review #1,236: DJ 5150 & Dre + Big Jay & Dow Jones "N.O. To The B.R. 8 (Bayou Classic Edition)"

Reviewed on 12.30.2012 (Review #1,236)

My next review iz DJ 5150 & Dre + Big Jay & Down Jones N.O. To The B.R. 8 (Bayou Classic Edition). I must’ve never been notified when this came out, so I’m glad I’m gettin’ to it now. Start Time: 9:49 AM | End Time: 10:09 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 love it already. If at least a 4.6 rating, I pretty much really love it, as it’s considered mindblowin’ when I hear it! Any song can earn up to a maximum of a 5.0 rating. Anything I type before “ >>> ” iz what I’m sayin’ before I listen to tha song; anything after I type “ >>> ” iz what I think of tha song while I’m listening to it. If you use tha word “swag” frequently, have auto-tune in your vocals, or talk about nothin’ but money and hoes 100,000x (which I consider ‘typical’ topics), I’m not buyin’ it!

© 2012 CD Review (Review #1,236) reviewed on 12.30.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. Calliope Var “Keep It 100”
I may not remember some of these songs, if I heard ‘em or not… >>> Nice production; nice and focused, as always! Good job, Calliope! My Rating: 4.4

02. Ray Vicks & Lil’ Boosie “Lethal Injection”
My Current Rating: 4.2

03. B.G. & Lil’ Boosie “N.O. To The B.R.”
>>> I don’t really anticipate both artists anymore, since they’re not really underground, but this ain’t too bad. Sounds like a lot from Boosie, and even somewhat a lot from Gizzle, too. Ehh, this passes in a big way, overall; can’t deny it! My Rating: 4.3

04. Kevin Gates “Watch This”
>>> Almost skipped “this;” wtf iz “this”? A lil’ catchy, but too mainstream for me wit tha non-lyrical lyrics and annoying voice, at times. My Rating: 3.1

05. Juvenile Feat. Rick Ross “Power”
My Current Rating: 4.2

06. Young Ready “Whaddup”
This looks familiar; how many times does it appear? My Current Rating: 4.9

07. Skip “Scared Money”
I don’t like tha title; let’s see how it goes wit Mannie Fresh on tha beat… >>> Sounds focused; I like how Mannie did tha beat, here. Skip knows how ta go off, randomly; good rhymes! My Rating: 4.3

09. Sess 4-5 & Keedy Black “I Luv Dat Boy”
>>> Likin’ this; catchy lil’ hook from whateva “boy” or girl’s on tha hook… Sess’s doin’ a nice job wit his verse, and that Keedy person’s even on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit a nice duet, here! Definitely a nice collaboration, bounce style; can’t complain, here! My Rating: 4.4

10. Curren$y Feat. Young Roddy & Trademark Da Skydriver “Excellent”
>>> Nothin’ “excellent” about this; it’s just good… My Rating: 3.8

11. A-One (Wissel) “Ain’t Gone”
A G-Motive beat (G-Motivation?). >>> I guess it iz ‘cause I heard tha tag. Not really into tha hook’s vocals, that much; let’s see how this turns out, overall… Boring flow that sounds like Ross; just barely crossin’ tha okay mark fa me… My Rating: 3.4

½time: A 4.1-rated CD, currently.

12. Lee Banks Feat. Mouse On Tha Track “Laid Back”
>>> Nice and slow; an okay song, overall, wit a high perspective. LOL, an unlisted feature from Mouse on tha 2nd verse? How can you not list Mouse? Don’t people dickride him??? My Rating: 4.2

13. Shell “Ya Heard Me”
Ooh, I neva heard before! Mouse doin’ tha beat, this time; really lookin’ forward ta hearin’!! >>> Very fast rappin’; not what I’m used to fa Shell… There’s a lot ta digest here! Tha hook sounds good; I can even get through tha background vocals, at times… Even more comin’ outta tha 2nd verse; catchiness, at its finest! My Rating: 4.4

14. Down Bad “Shine On”
I heard this one; my top-rated on their Da Final Four CD! My Current Rating: 4.7

16. Dhat Fam “Doin’ My Lit Dance”
I dunno about this… >>> Not too good for a start wit stealin’ “Some Cut”’s squeakin’. Ehh, not for me wit this “money” and “swag” shit. *Skips* My Rating: 1.5

17. Webbie “Finna Fuck You”
LOL? >>> Sounds nice and raunchy, but I’m not into tha background vocals on tha hook; how many people have ta suck dick wit a-tune? My Rating: 3.2

18. L.D. Herb “Letter To You, The Government & God”
Huh? >>> You betta nail it if The Godfather’s sampled! Really long intro fa a mixtape? Sounds a lil’ like tha Sqad Up! song from 2004 I played on my radio show wit tha beat? Ehh, not bad, overall, but too many samples goin’ on… My Rating: 3.4

19. Young Ready Feat. Yo Gotti “Hold Dat Noise (Remix)”
Can never tell if it’s “Dat” or “That”; I’ma go wit “Dat”, but it’s confusing, at times… My Current Rating: 4.5

20. Kevin Gates “Untamed”
>>> Talk about tha most faggiest times of “I’m A Boss” bein’ tha beat! I forgot that this whole CD was 2011; glad I can burn those dayz to flames!! Neva carry a memory from that year or else you’re a fag!! Despite me bein’ bothered by tha beat, I have to say that Gates brings tha consistent rhymes, this time. Too bad this couldn’t’ve been tha other beat. Damn, even tha hook’s good, too! My Rating: 4.5

21. Jason Lyric Feat. Pimpin’ Magnolia “Million Dollar Click”
>>> I don’t remember if I heard this; Jason told me to check out some of his videos a few months ago… This ain’t too bad; nothin’ too special, but at least it’s 100% listenable! My Rating: 3.7

22. Lil’ Mike Feat. Mista Cain & Savage “Flexin’”
Looks like Ville Boy Mike…; looks like a good collaboration but I dunno about this title… >>> Anotha bullshit song about “money” and dancin’; just gonna skim through this! Savage makes this sound like a normal song, but it’s far from that for me! My Rating: 2.4

Overall: This was not bad, at times, but there were a bunch of doozies…
