Review #1,160: Rudye "Beats By Dr. Dre (The Mixtape)"

Reviewed on 5.25.2012 (Review #1,160)


Comin’ up next, it’s dat boy Rudye Beats By Dr. Dre (The Mixtape)! Start Time: 10:38 PM | End Time: 10:57 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 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 #1,160) reviewed on 5.25.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. “Do My Thang” Feat. J Fletcha / Professor Griff (Skit)
>>> Lol, goin’ back to tha 2001 dayz/start of 8th grade, here, wit this “Fast Lane” beat! Oh, tha dayz where there was, like, no gayness! Well, 2012-updated female vocals on tha hook are a lil’ ehh for me, but once you start rappin’ non-stop about your “smokin’,” I’m startin’ ta feel betta, especially wit a 2012 perspective! Good job wit your kick-assness, Rudye!! Fletch ain’t too bad on tha 2nd verse; glad tha character’s here! I can feel tha skit at tha end, too… My Rating: 4.3


02. “Back Down”
>>> Lol, tha dayz of 9th grade wit this 50 Cent beat; Rudye, time ta stand up, lol! Not bad wit tha rhymes, here; I’ll give you props fa rappin’ on this beat. My Rating: 3.6


03. “Gettin’ Funky” Feat. IL Duce
Likin’ tha title… >>> Good vibe comin’ from you on this beat… Lol, an unsourced IL Duce on tha 2nd verse? His rhymes are definitely kickin’ ass, here; I’d give him a 3x plus over you wit this one, here! My Rating: 4.1


04. “Get You Some”
>>> You fillin’ tha smooth vibe, here; lol, those dayz of listenin’ to tha radio stations on Long Island, NY! It’s like, damn, can we live anotha 2001? Such a classic year!! It was tha only complete/full year I lived on Long Island, NY, wit my music taste! Rhymes ain’t too bad, here; I’ll give you some props fa this, overall… My Rating: 3.7


05. “Ghetto Boy”
>>> Lol, prolly tha oldest beat on this mixtape; rhymes ain’t too bad, here, as I’m feelin’ your day-by-day hood rhymes, here. For a freestyle-type joint, this a lil’ long; those other short lengths were better… My Rating: 3.7


06. Professor Griff (Skit)
>>> Sounds a lil’ like yes and no for me; feelin’ tha anti-mainstream belief, but I’m not too sure about how everything has to be in a “grown-up” perspective… My Rating: N/A


½time: This ain’t too bad of a mixtape, so far, Rudye; a 3.9-rated CD rating, currently, which iz a nice rating for a jacked-beat CD.


07. “Roll Up”
Sounds like you make tha mood sound real nice, here, especially wit dat music video!! I honestly didn’t realize how much you luv dat green!!! :) Really turned this into a “smoker’s” anthem!!! My Current Rating: 4.5


08. “Get Money” Feat. Bengie Bee
>>> Oh, beat brings back those 2000s-type memories, here! R.I.P. Nate Dogg! I remember when I first heard tha original version on tha radio; I must’ve had an excited feelin’, to where it was in my top 10 countdown @ #01 instantly! Oh, bein’ 12-years-old was tha shit, and tha music tastes really got into me, still today!! Gotta give y’all props fa rappin’ on this beat, even though tha “money” shit iz really not for me… My Rating: 3.5


09. “Victim Of Lust” / Professor Griff (Skit)
>>> Lol @ tha old sound, for a start… This ain’t too bad of a song, overall; nothin’ for me to say, here… As for tha skit, sounds a lil’ random? My Rating: 3.4


10. “Run Dat Shit”
>>> Lol @ “In Da Club” beat; almost sounds like tha most poppiest beat… until tha Nicki Minaj & Lil’ Wayne dayz, smh. Lol, it makes “In Da Club” sound classic, yet, all them blew up in tha same decade? Oh, I have to admit, I definitely miss those dayz!! I’m feelin’ your rhymes, here; they’re nice and consistent… You even got a outro, here; thumbs up ta tha, “Free Beezy!,” part! I remember I told you about him bein’ in jail; hope he’s doin’ okay! My Rating: 3.7


11. “Freestyle 101” (Jason Lyric)
Just Lyric on this? >>> Lol, “The Set Up” beat, takin’ it back to tha dayz where I first moved into tha house I currently live in! Not really into this typical, 2010s-type rap flow, but tha lyrics are good… My Rating: 3.1


12. “The Red Planet” Feat. Briel
Anotha bonus… >>> A new joint? Long length…; iz that Briel again? Why iz she neva sourced? Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some nice, consistent rhymes, ta deliver to those really listenin’… Tha length makes it sound boring, but at least your rhymes don’t disappoint. My Rating: 3.2


Overall: For a jacked-beat CD, you did a pretty-good job; most people I say, “wtf,” to, but you made some of these jointz sound catchy. Hell, you brought back a bunch of memories wit tha choices, unlike some of these so-called people, these dayz, that pick tha most-popular beats!

© 2012 CD Review (Review #1,159) reviewed on 5.25.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. Intro
>>> Tag. My Rating: N/A


02. “I Got This”
>>> Lol, that great voice of Juvie’s, comin’ through wit some synthy-soundin’ tightness, lol! Lyrics are on tha same quality as tha typical rap of today, but ehh, at least “I” can deal with “this”… Mystikal ain’t too bad, either, but you already know that I love his fast rhymin’! Got Juvie comin’ through on tha 3rd verse, too, still feelin’ like a “super” life; I feel dat… My Rating: 4.2


03. “Excuse My French”
>>> Tightness from Mystikal, wit only 35 seconds, here!! Beat’s kinda ehh, as it’s like a “Teach Me How To Dougie”-type shit, but I like tha rhymes… My Rating: 4.4


04. “Short Story”
>>> Rofl @ tha honest Mystikal on tha 1st verse: “Woke up… dick hard;” tha more descriptive rhymes are, tha betta, especially when it comes to tha sex scenes! Also, I’m feelin’ this conversation-type rappin’ on tha 1st verse! Lol, very interestin’ shit from Mystikal, here, and tha beat has some interestin’ sounds, too, on tha hook! Ooh, more Mystikal on tha 2nd verse, strictly keepin’ tha character comin’ along!! Tha 3rd verse iz Mystikal, too, and it’s pretty tight, non-stop; glad my interest in hearin’ some of this shit iz still up!! My Rating: 4.7


05. “Sweet Love” Feat. Mannie Fresh
>>> Like tha Anita Baker song, but I dunno about an updated song to include for a sample. Either way, nice vibe… Lol, Ju-to-tha-vie, here, on tha 1st verse; a lil’ mainstream vibe wit tha beat, but there’s a good vibe, here… Lol, Mannie Fresh back rappin’? Seemed like he’s been absent for quite a while; pretty nice, except tha suckin’ dick shit wit tha A-tune. Damn, didn’t know he was like dat! Now, I wanna decrease tha rating, since he sounds like he’s touchin’ himself! My Rating: 3.2


06. “Move Something” Feat. Mannie Fresh
>>> Echo-y-type of start? Not bad, but tha great vegetables and fruits from Mystikal on tha 1st verse’s pretty interestin’! Iz Mannie gon sound normal, now? *Listens* Ooh, a nice beat right after him, too; Mystikal luvs dat swing, and I’m glad he includes it in his jointz! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty catchy, too; lol @ tha “carinval” line! Mannie’s also comin’ through wit some catchiness, too. My Rating: 4.2


07. “Pure White Blend”
>>> Anotha hot beat fa Juvie ta rap on; kinda sounds cocky wit tha content, but it ain’t too bad, overall. Just Juvie, here, comin’ through wit a catchy flow. My Rating: 3.4


08. “I’ont Like You” Feat. Fiend
>>> Lol, “I’on Like You”? Knew it sounded familiar and it’s a lil’ old, especially since a remix was released after; lol @ tha different title (“Fuck Ova Ya”?)! My Current Rating: 4.8


09. “I’mma Husstler”
>>> I’m likin’ this beat betta than #7; nice start, Juvie! Strictly a “hustler,” Juvie; still goin’ strong at 37-years-old! Tha 1st verse’s pretty nice; it shows you don’t stop wit this shit… More shit from Juvie on tha 2nd verse, here; not bad… My Rating: 3.7


10. “Spendin’ This Money” Feat. Lil’ Wayne & Fiend
Not really too into tha mainstream feature, as well as tha title. >>> Hook ain’t too bad; I actually like tha “papercuts” part. Nothin’ really ta say about Wayne on tha 1st verse; next… Fiend comin’ through on tha 2nd verse wit some non-soft rhymes; ehh, I can kinda deal wit this… Lol, here’s Mystikal on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through wit tha A-grade rhymes, as always!! Whoa @ these rhymes, Mystikal; you can make anyone ‘lol,’ lol! My Rating: 4.1


11. “Freestyle Session”
>>> A Pinky drop in tha beginning, here… Quality in tha vocals are kinda throwin’ me off, especially if it’s from Juvie, who iz bigger than a basement studio! Same thing wit Mystikal, even though his rhymes are pretty tight! Still, this would be acceptable no later than, probably, 2004! My Rating: 4.0


12. “Power” Feat. Rick Ross
Smh @ tha stars in tha ID. :td >>> It has a good, faster vibe, here, but takin’ some dance music for tha sample, lol (Snap “The Power”). I actually think this iz pretty catchy, especially wit Juvie’s entertainin’-ass! Lol @ these rhymes, Juvie; “sittin’ on tha shitter!” “Shitter”? Juvietastic!!! No comment on Fake Ross’s shit, here; why this collab? :confused Good thing you’re back on tha 3rd verse, Juvie; feelin’ tha rhymes! Lemme quote: “Mixin’ dope like a chemist;” “boy, I drop birds down south, like a pigeon,” lol! Rofl @ this entertainment!! My Rating: 4.2


½time: A 4.1-rated CD, currently; nice job!


13. “Black Card Music” Feat. Skip
>>> Low interest; bad start… Glad to see a UTP-type collab, here, especially wit Skip doin’ a nice job, but that hook brings more shittiness than a positive perspective fa me. My Rating: 2.9


14. “Now I Shine” Feat. Trey Songz
What’s wit these collabs? :confused >>> Okay, but I thought I was listenin’ to Louisiana music, especially a mixtape, especially undergr—oh wait, this iz mainstream… Content doesn’t really do anything for me, since it’s on a mainstream tip, and I’m not into all this “money” shit. My Rating: 2.7


15. Mystikal Speakin’ On Signing With Cash Money
Even though he’s been in tha mainstream world, I don’t get why people love wantin’ to get signed; doesn’t that destroy creativity? >>> Ehh, okay. My Rating: N/A


16. “From The Start” Feat. Birdman & Lil’ Wayne
Fuck, again wit tha features! >>> Nothin’ interestin’, except when Mystikal comes through wit tha fastness! Why does all this mainstream music gotta sound tha same, especially tha same artists collaboratin’? Startin’ ta get real boring!! My Rating: 2.8


17. “All That I Know” Feat. Trae Tha Truth & Tec-9
Not sure why we gotta have tha extra name in Trae’s name, includin’ that I think it’s “Tha” and not “The”. >>> Wasn’t really into tha singin’ on tha hook, but this sounds tight wit tha fast beat! Ooh, even some fastness from Mystikal, too!! This iz uniqueness for tha mainstream, unlike tha same-soundin’ shit I’m used ta hearin’!! Good shit from Trae on tha 2nd verse, too; non-stop, fastness!!! Ooh, even fastness from Tec-9, too? Thumbs up fa this, includin’ a comeback!! Almost sounds like Chubb Rock, here… or, Krayzie Bone/one of tha Bone Thugs!! My Rating: 4.7


18. “Break It Down” Feat. Usher
>>> 1st ½ iz wtf @ bein’ here, but Mystikal’s fastness serves its purpose. Still, major drop for includin’ tha Usher beginning!! My Rating: 1.9


19. “Put It On Ya” Feat. Jazelle Paris
>>> This sounds like some of tha previous shit, too… Oh wait, I remember this from Music Choice: Rap, at least a year ago. Well, good for a smooth joint; Mystikal always knows how ta handle everything he’s on!! My Current Rating: 4.3


20. “Headbanger” Feat. Nino & B.o.B.
>>> “Juvenile, Nino & B.O.B.;” thanx for tha info. Scary hook; not really my type, since it almost scared me wit tha voice… I really don’t have any feedback on this; a lil’ tired of tha fastness from this CD, now… My Rating: 2.6


21. Soulja Slim Speakin’ On It
Too bad they spelled his name as “Solja”, smh… >>> Good skit! My Rating: N/A


22. “Bandanna” Feat. Skip & Wacko
>>> Looks like a familiar-lookin’ title, but it’s still a pretty-tight joint, of course! Skip & Wacko comin’ through, here, wit tha street shit, 504 style! Just Skip & Wacko on this? Interestin’… My Rating: 4.2


23. “1000 Grams” Feat. Waka Flocka Flame
>>> Kinda wtfish wit tha feature, but I’ll give this a props, since Waka has some off-centered character… Ooh, Mystikal’s comin’ through on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through as a “mop;” nice wipin’, Mystikal, lol!! Tha Cash Money-soundin’ sample on tha hook sounds pretty tight. However, I’m sure tha drug-type music I heard from back in tha earlier dayz sounds much tighter and more serious than this! My Rating: 4.3


24. “Gangsta” Feat. Skip
>>> Nice beginning, includin’ tha nice beat, too… Juvie’s doin’ a nice job on tha 1st verse, here; let’s see what Skip gon offer… Not too bad, either, but I’m not likin’ tha “money” shit; startin’ ta be less “gangsta” tha more I hear about “money!” My Rating: 3.3


25. “Wildboy (Remix)” Feat. 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Mystikal, French Montana, Yo Gotti & Steve-O
>>> Nice remix; all y’all doin’ a nice job wit this! My Rating: 4.6


Overall: Good job, for tha most part; nice job collaboratin’ on a mixtape project together, and keep up tha great work!

Reviewed on 5.25.2012 (Review #1,158)


I have a lil’ time, here; lemme review somethin’… Here’s my review for tha TRU Records/DeadlySoundz Music release: The Recruits TRU City! FYI: The Recruits are Rudye, IL Duce & 2 Saint. Start Time: 8:58 PM | End Time: 9:21 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!

© 2012 CD Review (Review #1,158) reviewed on 5.25.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. “Welcome To Tru City” Feat. Briel
Lemme hear what y’all got goin’ on, here… >>> Interestin’ female vocal start; nice hook! Nice shit comin’ from Rudye & IL, here; gotta give props to tha quality of tha Southern rhymes! My Rating: 4.4


02. “Picture Me Tru” Feat. C-Murder & M-11
>>> Nice start wit C on tha hook; it’s all about bein’ “a tru nigga.” :tu Got Rudye startin’ off wit tha 1st part, comin’ through wit some great shit fa tha streets of BR. Ooh, an actual verse from C on tha 2nd verse; good shit comin’ from him, as always! You know what it iz wit dat “tru”, gangsta shit! Got M-11 comin’ through on tha 3rd verse, deliverin’ a nice, consistent verse fa y’all and this album! My Rating: 4.4


03. “But U Luv It” Feat. Max Minelli
>>> Really likin’ tha unique production, here; sounds like a castle and celetic soldiers and warriors ‘bout ta battle, like in Final Fantasy VI, lol! Good hook from Max, comin’ through wit his “double” method! IL Duce’s on tha 1st verse, and he comin’ through wit a progression, when it comes from “startin’ from nothin’” to where he at now (and, even when this CD was released in early 2011)! Ooh, trap-type shit from Rudye on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit a full “plate” fa anyone dat comes through, on tha block! My Rating: 4.5


04. “D.S.R.” Feat. Down Bad, Max Minelli, Derty & C-Murder
A.K.A.: “Dumb”; lol, I already know what it iz wit this one! My Current Rating: 4.6


05. “Slide It N”
>>> Sounds like some ‘90s R&B-type start in tha beginning; a lil’ catchy, so far… Beat sounds like it has a good vibe, here; nice, consistent shit from Duce on tha 1st verse… Lol, Rudye gettin’ his sex game on, here, throughout tha 2nd verse; gotta luv his perspective, lol!! My Rating: 4.2


06. “Keep It Tru” Feat. Pennie
>>> I remember this from one of my radio shows from a while ago; C-Murder randomly on tha sample, but not on tha ID (just a sample). Tha hook sounds nice from Pennie, here; got Rudye deliverin’ some PG-type shit fa tha ladies, this time, lol. Either way, I enjoyed tha lyrics to tha previous joint betta, but this still iz listenable… Got a 2 on tha 2nd verse…; lol, I’m just playin’! You already know it’s Duce on tha 2nd verse, lol… Tha rhymes ain’t too bad, either; not bad, overall. My Rating: 3.9


½time: A 4.3-rated CD, currently; that’s pretty good, especially since y’all are consistent at all times!!!


07. “A Lot Of Wayz”
Lol, “alot” iz not a compound word! >>> Sounds like a familiar song? I know I have heard this somewhere… I don’t remember where (I did clear most of my iTunes library not too long ago), but this iz more consistent shit from 2 (lol)! Even Rudye comin’ through wit some crazy-ass shit; you know this shit’s undeniable, lyrically, for tha streetz!! My Current Rating: 4.6


08. “Gamer” Feat. Jason Lyric & Jonea Lyric
>>> Lol, oh yea, I remember this from my radio show! You know what? This and tha previous song was prolly from Rudye’s Gutta Baby mixtape from 2010 that was sent to me! Oh, gotta compare tha ratings so I’m not rating below! *Compares ratings* Lol, IL Duce was tha only feature, but now, I got a list! Too bad I aired it on my radio show without tha features listed! Or wait, this iz longer? Yup, it iz… *Hears tha Lyric peoples’ parts* Ehh, prolly could’ve just left it as Rudye & IL Duce… My Rating: 4.2


09. “Yeah Nigga”
>>> Beat’s a lil’ on tha quieter tip, for a start; rhymes are good from Duce, here. Tha hook sounds pretty tight; I like those mysterious, quiet vocals wit tha title bein’ said! Good job, IL; you held down tha 2nd verse, too… My Rating: 4.3


10. “Raw”
>>> Sounds like someone ‘bout ta rip someone’s head off wit that sample on tha hook, lol! Not bad wit tha rhymes comin’ from Duce, here, on tha 1st verse… However, it sounds like Rudye has some betta shit ta offer on tha 2nd part of tha 1st verse; gotta feel his “raw” feelings, lol! Tha 2nd verse starts wit IL Duce, and he’s got a bunch of goodbyez for these haters; nice and consistent, at its finest! Got some Rudye on tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse, too, comin’ through wit his non-stop “grind,” here! Thumbs up fa tha hood content, as well as tha “cramp” line, lol. Got a 3rd verse, here, and it’s IL Duce startin’ it off, wit some catchy rhymes! Lol, from tha “hourglass” to tha “shittin’ on you niggaz,” I’m definitely feelin’ tha shit bein’ brought to tha table, here! Ooh, Rudye’s comin’ through wit a lot of catchiness in tha beginning of tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse! Really liked how there wasn’t much of tha beat when he was deliverin’ some tight shit, but either way, tha whole 2nd ½ of tha verse was nice! My Rating: 4.4


11. “My Turn” (Briel)
>>> More mysterious vocals comin’ through on tha hook? Briel’s voice? Really likin’ how it sounds! Oh, a lil’ ehh wit tha “Video Phone” quote; ehh, but it’s not too bad, overall… Oh, this iz only tha female, here? Interestin’; a lil’ Faith Evans-y-soundin’, on tha 2nd verse, which sounds like a lil’ bit of sexiness iz here… My Rating: 3.3


12. “Post & Lean”
>>> Lol, tha volume’s so much louder than tha previous joint, lol! Feelin’ tha hook, “post & lean” style! Got Rudye on tha 1st verse, here, comin’ through fa all tha “bitches,” lol; nothin’ but luv comin’ from this way, Rudye, as you already know what it iz! Some cash to start off tha 2nd verse, here, wit IL Duce on tha verse… Feelin’ tha ‘feelin’-like-a-hotel’-type vibe, Duce; catchiness in tha flow, too! My Rating: 4.2


Overall: Nice CD, guys; y’all a great, tri-combo team! Keep up tha great work, as y’all neva stop grindin’!!

Tha reason why I'm doin' this iz 'cause I played a bunch of fake, not-acknowledging assholes mainly durin' tha 1st year, and I want legends, such as Skull Duggery, to have equal or more spins to those assholes on my show, ya feel me?

Review #1,157: Dino Danja "Danja Zone 3.5 (Hosted by DJ 5150)"

Reviewed on 5.13.2012 (Review #1,157)


Final review of tha night: Dino Danja Danja Zone 3.5 (Hosted by DJ 5150). I’m kinda jumpin’ ahead wit my reviewz ‘cause I gotta get up for my internship tomorrow (goin’ to sleep in under two hours), and I wanted to review somethin’ short. Start Time: 9:15 PM | End Time: 9:38 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 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 #1,157) reviewed on 5.13.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. “Get It Out The Mud (Remix)” Feat. Lil’ Junior., Mista Cain, Big Head, Clever Kev, Young Shine, Lee Banks, Young Ready, Troy Da Triggaman & DJ Wookee
>>> What’s wit tha names in tha beginning? Shouldn’t they be listed in tha feature? Ugh, I gotta do my Google search! Okay, tha features are on tha music video’s description. Tha 1st part sounds good wit this vibe and beat (Problem Child J.R., a.k.a. Lil’ Junior)…; tha 2nd part sounds like Mista, and it’s good. Hearin’ tha hook now, and it sounds good; nice and dirty (“mud” style, I mean), lol! Tha 2nd verse’s startin’ wit Big Head, and it sounds tight wit how he came through fa dis; good job! Tha 2nd part of tha 2nd verse iz Clever Kev and of course, he came through nice fa you, Danja… Let’s see what tha 3rd verse has ta offer: Okay, on a Short Bus Boyz (former name) tip, comin’ through fa tha streetz, here… Tha 2nd part of tha 3rd verse iz soundin’ tighter; nice job, Lee… Lol, anotha dose of Ready, here, on tha 1st part of tha 4th verse, comin’ through wit a good vibe, except mentionin’ a “ringtone,” smh. Please, Ready, don’t sound pop! Hearin’ Trigga on tha 2nd part of tha 4th verse, and it’s tha usual shit he spits, which iz good. However, why haven’t I heard about my awards? :confused Neva even heard from tha manager that I sent ‘em to, which could decrease random freebies! My Rating: 4.2


02. “Make It Shake”
>>> Mo good shit, here; too bad you’re not into freestylin’ and into not callin’ back/no-shows… Still, at least you got good songs like these ta cover that patch… Hearin’ a catchy, continuous beat goin’ on, here, as well as your good shit fa tha streetz; nice job! My Rating: 4.3


03. “Sho Up & Sho Off” Feat. A.u. & Clever Kev
Now, tha features are listed? Inconsistent wit who did tha filenames? >>> Nice beginning start… Intro’s kinda long, but ain’t too bad, overall; sounds like A.u. has a long 1st verse? You & Kev sound a lil’ betta; a nice collaboration, regardless. My Rating: 3.6


04. “M.O.B.”
>>> Nice beginning beat start, once again… Tha verse sounds good fa this kinda vibe; at least it ain’t too long ta fit a quick lil’ mix. Thumbs up fa you holdin’ down some streetz, Dino. My Rating: 4.0


05. “Bottom Of The Map” Feat. Bengie B
>>> Feelin’ tha beginning rhymes; anotha street anthem, here, wit a betta beat ta vibe and progress to! Tha hook’s a lil’ bit of a play on an older Lil’ Wayne song, which could’ve been a lil’ original, here, but it’s still cool… Lol, long beat outro? Good job wit tha collab, once again. My Rating: 4.1


½time: A 4.0-rated CD, currently; nice shit, Danja!


06. “Addicted To The Trap”
Rhymin’ titles back to back, lol… >>> Really likin’ tha beginning start; I think this gon be good… Rhymes are yada-yada, typical-type shit, but this sounds good for a song, overall. My Rating: 3.8


07. “Miss Me Wit It” Feat. Netwurk
>>> This ain’t too bad; nothin’ really ta say that I haven’t about this CD, already… My Rating: 3.7


08. “Ignant Shit”
Tha Dae~Dae & G.T. collab? >>> It’s not; sounds kinda dry and okay, at tha same time, but tha previous version was better… My Rating: 3.5


09. “From Tha South To The Ville” Feat. Ville Boyz
I like both “tha” and “the” are in “tha” title, lol… >>> Not really into all these “money” songs; ain’t that, like, tha death of Hip-Hop? Hate hearin’ “money” songs, but this okay for a song, overall; nice flows delivered on tha verses! Feelin’ tha energy and attitudes applied ta this track… My Rating: 4.1


10. “Dear Momma”
>>> Not really for me, but good delivery wit how you deliver these rhymes. Then again, this ain’t too bad, after all. Still, rappers talkin’ about their “momma”? I thought everyone was embarrassed about their parents, especially their “mom”? I think of it wit my 15-year-old cousin, who wouldn’t be seen wit her in tha stores. My Rating: 3.0


Overall: Nice job; I enjoyed tha CD, Danja…

Review #1,156: Young Camo (Camofloug) "Want It"

Reviewed on 5.13.2012 (Review #1,156)


Got Young Camo a.k.a. Camofloug up next, courtesy of Undercover Records, Want It; really lookin’ forward to hearin’!!! Start Time: 8:14 PM | End Time: 8:54 PM

© 2012 CD Review (Review #1,156) reviewed on 5.13.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. “Stare”
This X-Fyle-produced track iz classic to me! Tha first and only song (so far) I’ve heard from you, and you got a shitload of character!! Actually, one of my favorite parts iz when you go, “Stare…stare…stare…stare,” especially wit tha fade-out outro, lol! Always gave me good giggles to play it more, and it sure got you a *CERTIFIED CLASSIC* award, thanx to tha number of times I played it in 2010 & 2011 combined! My Current Rating: 4.7
To Add: This iz tha first time I’m hearin’ you cuss, too, lol, on a track, since I had tha clean version of this song.


02. “Supposed 2 Do” Feat. Lil’ Ronnie & AWEtheNIQ
Authentic different from AWEtheNIQ? >>> Rappin’ on a Vybe beat, here; I’m likin’ tha hook, here… Camo, you doin’ tha damn thang wit this dude on tha hook; such a great voice fa dis shit, here! You seem so anticipatin’ ta hear, that I feel like I’m listenin’ to a brand-new album that just hit tha stores!!! You doin’ a nice job wit tha 1st verse; seems like you luv fuckin’ girls a lot, lol? Definitely a nice job wit holdin’ down tha 1st verse, Camo!! I believe it must be Lil’ Ronnie on tha 2nd verse, since he’s 1st in tha feature? Feelin’ how he comin’ through wit this, too, even though tha lyrics are kinda on tha average side… Wow, 3:42 has went by before tha 3rd verse, already? Doesn’t sound that long… Oh, I think that iz AWEtheNIQ on tha 3rd verse (spelled like that); nice rhymes! Thumbs up for tha collaboration! Also, real unique wit tha gradually-slowin’-down outro!! My Rating: 4.4


03. “Pint Of Yak” Feat. Lit Wig & Lit Ant
No need for tha Boosie on tha feature, since you told me it was just a sample. >>> I think this sounds pretty tight, especially for what iz a Vybe beat… Here you are on tha 1st verse, and this iz okay, but what’s wit tha rhymes about hoes? I thought this was about a “pint of yak”? Not too good wit tha off-topic content; I assume you lost your virginity so long ago…? Hearin’ tha 2nd verse, and now, it sounds like some street shit? I thought I’d hear shit about gettin’ fucked up? Still confused wit tha off-topic content, once again… Tha 3rd verse iz also off-topic, but it sounds good? More on tha gangsta shit; really, really confused about these lyrics and this title! My Rating: 4.3


04. “Say Thea Lady” Feat. Head, Lit Wig & K-Boss
What iz this title? >>> Lol, anotha Vybe beat; I thought you would’ve had a lil’ more original production, but Vybe’ll always slide as acceptable… I assume it’s “the” or “tha” in tha title? I’m confused again, lol… Here you are on tha 1st verse, and it sounds pretty good wit tha flow, once again! Lol, you and tha girls; surprised you didn’t have one in tha car wit you dat day at BET! You sound great, but I think this song’s gonna get a lil’ boring as it progresses; why tha 5:06 length? Gotta have some jointz a lil’ shorter… Tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad, here; almost sounds a lil’ like Lil’ Boosie, in a way (a lil’ way, that iz). Lol @ tha dude on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through wit a sex scene; nice descriptive lyrics, here. Really, I dunno how all y’all guys automatically get girls; seems to be everyone’s typical rap sheet for rap? My Rating: 4.0


½time: I’m definitely feelin’ this whole CD, so far; nothin’ boring me and everything seems to entertain me, in a way! Currently, a 4.0 for tha CD rating!


05. “Good Joog”
Speakin’ of original production, we got Grind on tha beat and luckily, a minute shorter… >>> Feelin’ tha slow start; likin’ tha small set of lyrics in tha hook, but it almost sounds like you’re suckin’ dick, which ain’t straight for a dude (a.k.a. that fad called ‘A-tune’?). :confused Rhymes ain’t too bad, but tha more I hear tha hook, tha more I can’t have a straight face; not really on a straight tip for me… Overall, I like this, and for some reason, I have a lil’ bit of a hypnotized/addicted feel to it; good job, straight or not! My Rating: 4.4


06. “Drip Drop (Love My Voice)”
Ooh, some more original production, here (X-Fyle)! >>> Lots of different paces in tha beginning, before tha hook started… Lol, this goes perfect wit Filly’s “Sweat (The Drip Drop Song)”, lol; seems like a male sequel? Tha fast rappin’ sounds a lil’ funny, here; thought I’d like it a lil’ betta, but this iz still somethin’ nice ta hear! Good job wit havin’ a shorter song on this CD; it didn’t need to be that long, anyway. Nice job wit X-Fyle includin’ tha moanin’ in tha background; that fits a lil’ like Nightclub’s 2001 “French Kiss”’s moanin’! :) My Rating: 4.0


07. “Floating Thru Da City” Feat. Lit Ant, Young Coach, Dapp, K-Boss, Head & Lil’ Ronnie
Damn, 8:23 on tha length? Hope it’s worth it! >>> A Vybe beat fa this longness… Tha hook’s a lil’ on tha mainstream tip fa me; nothin’ special. Lol, you’re always first? I know I got a 4.0 GPA this semster, but bein’ in different ranks iz fun, you know dat? F-to-tha-U-to-tha-N!!! Good job wit your fast rhymes; once again, more “pussy-poppin’” shit, lol! At least it’s betta than dat “I got money; I got swag” bullshit! Here’s tha 2nd verse, whoeva it iz (must be Lit Ant), and it sounds a lil’ like a Lil’ Boosie flow. Uh, these rhymes and flow are not for me at all! Must be Young Coach on tha 3rd verse? Heard it before tha verse started… Nothin’ special wit tha lyrics, but at least they’re somewhat for me… Let’s see this Dapp dude on tha 4th verse… Okay, betta lyrics fa me; at least it feels like you’re ridin’ ‘round in a car! I don’t get why everyone has ta add shit about tha ladies in every rhyme; throws a topic like this off and iz show-off material! I think I heard K-Boss in tha mist of tha 4th verse, too, ‘cause it’s now time fa tha 5th verse (Head): Not too bad; I’m feelin’ tha rhymes and how he comes through wit it… Last verse iz Lil’ Ronnie; let’s see how it goes… Ugh, a Lil’ Boosie-soundin’ voice, almost; seems ta be tha Lil’ Boosie effect iz not for me, here, ‘cause I can’t get inta most of this 6th verse. For tha most part, this was too long. My Rating: 3.1


08. “Bet Dat Up” Feat. Angel Danga & K-Boss
>>> Must be a Vybe beat by tha beginning sound…? It iz; tha beginning voice sounded a lil’ too mainstream-y for my taste, but let’s see how this goes… Okay, tha hook ain’t too bad; nothin’ really ta say/nothin’ special. I really don’t like hearin’ tha word “real” too much; be careful… Tha 1st verse had tha word “swag” in it? It ain’t too bad wit tha flow, but this sounds too mainstream-y wit tha sound… Tha 2nd verse iz a girl? Neva mind, I thought it was; it sounds okay, too, as it’s a lil’ betta… Lol, you’re on tha 2nd ½ of tha 2nd verse, and you’re last, this time, lol? Funny, since you’re always first… Anyway, not bad wit how you came; of course, you were tha best, since you added your chemistry to tha table! My Rating: 3.4


09. “Stare (Remix)” Feat. Delwin The Krazyman
Pointless for me? >>> Yea, same beat; can’t give feedback on tha feature, since I was called 16 names on Twitter for givin’ a good review, smfh! *Skips* My Rating: N/A


Overall: Too bad I wasn’t allowed to review tha whole entire CD, but definitely a real nice job, Camofloug! Keep your character up wit everything you do; there’s a bunch of potential, especially wit original production behind you!!
