Review #1,169: Dat Boy A "The Butterfly Effect (The Sample)"

Reviewed on 7.31.2012 (Review #1,169)


Comin’ up next iz just a promo disc review: Dat Boy A The Butterfly Effect (The Sample). Not only iz this, like, a year old, but I don’t even have tha full version! :( I mean, c’mon; I was given tha Click House Retarded Vol. 1 to me in tha mail, back in 2010! A, I know we’re better than ’10, right? It’s ’12! Shoe Box Money Entertainment in tha buildin’ wit this one… Start Time: 10:47 PM | End Time: 11:06 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!

Link To CD: N/A


01. “What Your Life Like”
Lemme hear! >>> Maybe should be called “What Yo Life Like”? Really likin’ how you comin’ through on tha hook! Get ‘em, A! “Eat a dick up” you tellin’ ‘em; I’m feelin’ dat! Definitely feelin’ this production! You eva gon make your way up to see me? You told me you was gon see me two years ago, once you got passed June, 2010? Anyway, great rhymes in tha 1st verse! You doin’ a nice job wit your everyday-life rhymes! Still doin’ a nice job on this beat wit tha 2nd verse; good information… What’s wit tha random dude toward tha end? Sounds familiar, but don’t wanna think of who it iz, so fast. I remember back in, like, some part of 2010, when I was on tha phone wit Young Kidd Kidd, you said, “Love you Frankie.” I would’ve neva guessed, but that was before its time. Now, err-body be sayin’, “I love you too,” to me; glad you at least said it to me! You know I fuck wit you heavy, all day, A! My Rating: 4.4


02. “D-Spot” Feat. Ray Vicks
Let’s see how dis collab gon go! >>> Ooh, likin’ tha hook and beat, combined! Y’all really representin’ here; keep bein’ a trap star, A! Good shit goin’ on in tha 1st verse, A; kinda like me when it comes ta tryna find special things, like how I go through scratch-off lottery tickets! Love how you keep repeatin’, “You can get yo package!” :tu Even though this iz a jam, Ray Vicks’ rhymes on tha 2nd verse’s kinda ehh for me; I mean, how many rappers have to rap about dumb-ass “money”? I rather rap about how I’m broke! I rather admit it! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! “You can get yo package! You can get yo package!” Oh, if I would’ve had this when this came out, this prolly would’ve been a great song on my playlist; betta than that “Osama Bites The Dust”! My Rating: 4.7


½time: Lovin’ it, A; keep up tha great work!! A 4.6-rated CD, currently!!!!!!


03. “Don’t Worry” Feat. Level
This should be an interestin’ collab; I’m lookin’ forward! >>> Sounds like a regular song; tha pace iz okay, and tha hook’s kinda on tha quieter side. Tha 1st verse from you’s not bad, either; gotta give it to ‘em, lifestyle style, A. Tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad, either; I don’t know what else to say… Umm, Level gon prolly be on tha 3rd verse; I can’t picture him rappin’ about hoes and shit. Can he finally rap about autism? Shit, already talkin’ ‘bout relationships so fast? Didn’t seem like tha vibe fa dat, but whateva… My Rating: 3.6


04. “No Fool” Feat. Savage
Wow, I’ve been fooled! I looked at tha length of tha song first and thought it was “Osama Bites The Dust”! Wow, lookin’ forward ta this, includin’ Savage on tha feature!! >>> Anotha laidback vibe, here, mixed wit a faster-Sade instrument vibe, lol. Sounds like hilarious rhymes, at times (wit tha “kickin’ ya ass”), but you’re keepin’ it real. Great character you’re deliverin’, here, wit tha flow! Glad you ain’t on some boring shit! Now, time fa some S-A-V-A-G-E!!! Lol, faster flow from him; likin’ tha shit he be on! Sav, how ‘bout a 128 – 130 BPM joint; think you can keep up wit tha pace, lol? My Rating: 4.1


05. “Alright”
No “Osama”, lol? Guess its buzz died out, but let’s hear this… >>> Speakin’ of that song, EQ’s on tha track, here. Tha vibe’s kinda quiet, once again, but I’m likin’ your rhymes. Tha hook has an okay vibe; decent for me, but at least it’s an original production! Tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad, either; I don’t think I have anymore feedback on this one. My Rating: 3.6


Overall: I thought this was nice for just a sample; hope to hear tha real thing… soon?


Rankings:

05.       “Alright” 3.6
04.       “Don’t Worry” Feat. Level 3.6
03.   “No Fool” Feat. Savage 4.1

© 2012 CD Review (Review #1,168) reviewed on 7.31.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. The Resuscitation Introduction
>>> Interesting… My Rating: N/A


02. “Close Your Eyes”
>>> A start like this with 4:57 on tha length? Bad start; way too long… Voice and rhymes are great; makes this sound better than I expected, although Real Profit Ent. had tha same sample three years ago. My Rating: 3.6


03. “I Am…”
>>> Nice beat start…; decent wit tha rhymes, but why tha long songs? My Rating: 3.5


04. “Actin’ Bad” Feat. B.L.O.O.D.
>>> Wouldn’t’ve guessed it was a J Buc production based off these below average/decent ratings I’ve been givin’… Tha hook sounds good; almost sounds like M.A.’s “A.C.T.” wit tha “actin’ bad wit it.” Verses sound jammin’, too; nice job wit tha collaboration! My Rating: 4.1


05. “Living For The Moment” Feat. Young Shype
>>> Still on an East Coast vibe, which ain’t my 2012 cup of tea… Not bad, but some of tha excitement in tha song, here, sounds random… My Rating: 3.4


06. Briefcase Business
>>> Didn’t think this was gonna be a skit; interesting again. My Rating: N/A


07. “Briefcase Money”
Here we go. >>> J Buc doin’ tha beat, here. Lol @ tha really loud volume; mix-and-blastered, lol? Rhymes are not really for me wit all this “money” shit, but at least this a jam. My Rating: 4.2


08. “Work Your Body” Feat. Double O
>>> Really slow start, like I was listening to Fiona Apple’s “Every Single Night” or somethin’, lol. Well, for a title like this, this vibe’s a lil’ different, and also quiet (lol @ tha difference in audio volume from tha previous song)! Likin’ tha singer on tha hook; nice job wit it. Ehh, I’ll give this some credit… My Rating: 3.9


09. Resuscitation Interlude
>>> Nice to have interludes in tha mist of everything! My Rating: N/A


10. “Sweet”
>>> At least it’s a quick song, wit only 2:04 on tha length. Volume’s back to soundin’ blastin’ again, lol; rhymes ain’t bad, either. My Rating: 3.7


11. “Fuck Yo Swag”
Whether it’s “F U” or “F Y,” I don’t need to hear about “swag” at any time! >>> Thumbs up that there’s character in tha voice, here; catchy, but I ain’t into some of tha lyrics. Okay, maybe this can qualify a lil’ bit, but I’m sure any rapper could’ve came up wit this; can’t isolate this with my Louisiana tastes. My Rating: 3.3


12. “Niggaz From Louisiana” Feat. Pooh Da Lini
>>> Still sounds like mainstream music/music anyone can make; no need for tha title, here! Then again, I’m still likin’ tha character… My Rating: 3.4


13. R.I.P. Soulja Slim
>>> Yup. My Rating: N/A


½time: Decent for me, currently; 3.7 for tha CD rating.


14. “Jimmy ( Self Made )”
? >>> Back to tha long lengths, smh… I don’t see much interest in this, but you got a good voice for deliveries… My Rating: 2.8


15. “High Rolla” Feat. Young Shype
Nice title; hope it pays off! >>> I like tha beginning… Even though tha beat still sounds like anyone’s type of music, I’ll give this more credit than some of tha songs on here. Seems like Young Shype’s better than you; gritty voice wit a great delivery! My Rating: 3.6


16. “Blue Skye”
>>> Ugh, a sample! :td When will that bullshit go away in rap music? :confused Rhymes are good and consistent, here. My Rating: 3.1


17. “Track Murder”
>>> Not Louisiana for me; rhymes help make this sound better than I would’ve expected… My Rating: 3.0


18. Resuscitation Interlude 2
>>> Sounds like somethin’ grimy happened… My Rating: N/A


19. “Rock Star” Feat. Get It Boy G
>>> Bleh; Roscoe Dash shit? More typical music, smh! My Rating: 2.6


20. Smokey Skit
>>> Sounds like a cartoon about weed, almost. My Rating: N/A


21. “In My Blunt…”
It better be good! >>> Beat sounds jacked; I dunno how much my interest will last… Different delivery, here, on a laidback vibe. Good content wit tha “blunt” and all this smoke-type shit, but this ain’t nothin’ too special for me… My Rating: 3.5


22. “Shot Callaz” Feat. Joc Da Boy
>>> Random speech sample in tha beginning, it sounds like? Volume’s way too loud, again; too Meek Mill-y wit tha delivery. Ehh, why couldn’t you guys be like this in ’08? Very late wit tha chance; Nu$$ie was still alive!! Feelin’ tha 2nd verse, though, wit this “T-Rex” shit, includin’ tha nice delivery. My Rating: 3.6


23. “All Day, All Night” Feat. LeLe Marie
>>> Before I even hear it, I know tha length’s too long. Anyway, too Drake-y for me; I feel like skippin’! Not bad wit tha female, but no interest, here, after tha Drake sound-alike. My Rating: 2.2


24. Victor Maytlin Outro
>>> Glad you’re speaking, finally; share dem linx. My Rating: N/A


25. “Crying Herself To Sleep”
>>> No! Not for me, either. My Rating: 1.2


26. “The Reality (Still Smokin’)”
>>> Too Meek Mill-y, once again; not into these lyrics except tha character in tha hook. My Rating: 2.4


27. Resuscitation Outro
>>> Nice way to end this. My Rating: N/A


Overall: Too many songs, most of which were below average for me; why barely any original production? Maybe you’re startin’ to get your game up? Well, keep workin’ wit tha Buckster and you should get yourself more bucks wit Buc, soon!

Review #1,166: Klippa Raw "Every Dollar Counts"

Reviewed on 7.31.2012 (Review #1,166)


Tryin’ to get some work done, here; lemme start wit a Top Of The Line Entertainment review: Klippa Raw Every Dollar Counts! Start Time: 2:16 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!

© 2012 CD Review (Review #1,166) reviewed on 7.31.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. “Klippa Raw Freestyle”
How will it sound, especially startin’ wit a freestyle? >>> Great for a freestyle; thought tha beat would be boring and a noticeable, jacked beat! Thumbs up fa holdin’ it down fa tha south! My Rating: 4.3


02. Intro
So, a lil’ taste previously, since tha intro’s #2? >>> Okay, this beat sounds more like what I would’ve expected wit tha freestyle; good thing it’s just an intro ‘cause you sound great wit your talkin’, hence tha beat! Nice job wit this intro, Mr. Klippa! Lookin’ forward ta err-thang! My Rating: N/A


03. “You Can’t Tell Me I Ain’t On”
>>> Sounds catchy; a lot of money rhymes, but this iz good ta enjoy. My Rating: 4.4


04. “I Do My Own Thang”
>>> Sounds simple, but catchy; I like how you be reppin’ BR hard wit your presentations on tha tracks! My Rating: 4.2


05. “Ciroc In My Cup”
>>> Bad voice start; just gonna skim through this! :td My Rating: 1.6


06. “Beligerent”
>>> Another word for “duffy,” here; another good club banga… Rhymes are kinda ehh, but at least it ain’t like tha previous song! My Rating: 3.9


07. “One Up In The Head”
>>> Feelin’ tha street vibe, here; I can see value in you, especially since you be fuckin’ wit Ready, Zion City Juice, and more! Rhymes aren’t anything new in tha verses, but at least it’s a vibe I can feel. My Rating: 4.0


08. “All I Wanna Do”
>>> Boring “money” topic again, but tha hook goes off wit holdin’ tha notes! :tu Hope we can do serious business soon, since I be hearin’ ‘bout all this “money!” My Rating: 4.3


09. “Pass By You Niggas”
>>> No interest in tha lyrics, unfortunately; heard ‘em enough from tha other songs… Not too much interest wit this song for me; I just like tha “show my ass on you niggas” part, since you be doin’ ya thang wit dat. My Rating: 3.2


10. “Racks”
Ahh… >>> A lil’ too obsessed; I think this iz too much. As far as tha song, it’s kinda like dat bullshit, 2010s generation-type shit that’s out these dayz… My Rating: 2.7


½time: More of an album than a mixtape? Nothin’ blends in, since all tha endings are regular endings that don’t blend into tha next song… Anyway, 3.6 for tha CD rating, currently.


11. “You Ain’t Fucking Wit It”
>>> Thought I was expectin’ a pop-rap song wit tha sample in tha background, but this iz one of tha best ones on here? At least your flow’s different, wit tha fastness! See, now, you have a lot ta say, here! My Rating: 4.5


12. “Show You How I’m Living”
>>> Beat sounds like a jacked turn-off… No interest, once again! My Rating: 2.3


13. “Put A Hole In Ya”
>>> Beginning sounds much betta wit this beat; hope you can handle it! Content sounds like everyone else (e.g., with people, drunk, and can easily do things), but I’ll deal wit this… Okay, beat’s startin’ ta sound online-ish; ugh, this iz slowly gettin’ worse for me. Really, I’ve had enough of some of these boring, repetitive lyrics… My Rating: 3.3


14. “Really In The Building” Feat. Merkin’ Marcus
>>> Feature? Who iz it? Not listed, smh… Turned off by not knowin’ who it iz (EDIT: Did they say, “Murder Marcus”?) but not bad wit their verse… Tha rest of this ain’t all that, but at least I can picture tha dark streets by listenin’ to this. Hearin’ tha endin’ and I heard you say, “Merkin’ Marcus;” I’ll put that in tha feature. Iz that tha Marcus Lane dude in your FB friends? My Rating: 3.5


15. “Baton Rouge Nigga”
>>> I really like tha hook, here, wit this so-so beat! Great BR street rhymes, but some sound off-beat… My Rating: 4.4


16. Intro To Bonus Tracks
Let’s see what this gon be like… >>> Bonus tracks from “’08?” Always keepin’ tha Nu$$ie-Alive times alive, in 2K12, lol! My Rating: N/A


17. “Walk Down On Ya” Feat. Zion City Juice
I assume Juice iz on tha feature, here, even though it ain’t listed. >>> Quiet volume? You ain’t turn it up? :( Anyway, this sounds pretty gutta; I like dat “I walk down on ya pussy-azz!” Good collaboration wit Juice, here! Notice how this song ain’t “money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money,” right? Oh, tha good ’08 dayz!! My Rating: 4.6


18. “Nigga Like Me” Feat. Zion City Juice
>>> Features from tha intro? Ugh, why can’t they be listed? Anyway, now, tha volume sounds too loud, but this iz pretty-good for a song… I like that “Klippa, Klippa, Klippa, where ya been” part! My Rating: 4.2


19. “Let Me Ball”
>>> Sounds like you’ve been in bed wit a bunch of “bitches,” here? Wonder what that’s like, especially on a brave tip, to be wit a shitload of “bitches”? This sounds jammin’ wit tha beat, and what you’re deliverin’ ain’t too bad… This must be a lil’ ahead of ’08 ‘cause I hear you talkin’ about “cash,” here and there? My Rating: 3.8


20. “Ain’t Too Many” Feat. Zion City Juice
>>> Beginning lists Zion City Juice & La’Keith a part of this (La’Keith produced?)? Well, at least tha beat has that BR vibe to it; good street content, too. Feelin’ tha collaboration, here; y’all really holdin’ it down wit La’Keith’s supply! Damn, what happened to tha 3rd verse? A fill-in-tha-blank? :confused My Rating: 4.4


21. “Stay Thug” Feat. Zion City Juice
>>> Anticipatin’ beginning, since you said “La’Keith” iz “on tha track!” See, that’s all you need; no need for a dumb-ass beat tag, which I noticed there were none on this mixtape! It’s almost like jumpin’ into a refreshin’ Jacuzzi when I know there’s a 2012 CD/mixtape wit no beat tags! :tu Anyway, feelin’ tha rhymes; this combination of you, Juice & La’Keith iz one of tha great ways ta have a BR vibe and feel it! Good collaboration, once again, but what’s wit tha fill-in-tha-blank on tha 3rd verse, again? Somebody fuck wit your head or somethin’, Klip? Like, were you ‘pose to get a verse from someone, and because you didn’t, you didn’t release this (and tha previous) song (randomly issuing it somewhere)? My Rating: 4.4


Overall: A lil’ bit of a mixed review for me, but overall, those bonus tracks helped! Good job, I must say; get a lil’ better wit tha diversity, at times, and stay on ya grind! Hope to do a radio interview wit you either tonight or tomorrow!

Review #1,165: K-Chill "News Flash (Da Mixtape)"

Reviewed on 7.18.2012 (Review #1,165)


Either I radio edit or review; which one should I do? Well, I’m gonna review, real quick, so I’m a lil’ caught up. Got a special, all-artist radio show this Sunday night, and I might make it a K-Chill one. Speakin’ of him, to go with that show, here’s my review for his latest CD, News Flash (Da Mixtape)! Start Time: 8:36 PM | End Time: 9:03 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 #1,165) reviewed on 7.18.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. “I Don’t Like You”
Startin’ off wit a title I like to hear! Betta yet, this one T dude that screamed at me, back on April “Friday Tha 13th”, 2007, said this to me: “SHUT UP, I DON’T LIKE YOU;” everytime I see tha words, “I don’t like you,” I think of that, and start laughin’ in my head! >>> Comin’ through real hard, as usual; keep tha explicit attitude comin’ along!! I like how their name iz “P.A.N.;” you know what it iz!! Good job wit tha beat and how you’re comin’ through wit tha flow, here; real good 1st verse!! Tha hook sounds pretty tight; luvin’ tha extra, extra explicitness goin’ on, continuously!! Nice job wit tha 2nd verse, too; kickin’ lots of ass, here, K-Chill!!! My Rating: 4.6


02. “Go Dumb”
Lol, duh!! >>> Beats continue to progress in a tight way; nice beginning… Gotta luv how a bunch of your songs blend in together, wit that great, energetic quality!! I dunno what ta exactly say, since I really say tha same shit, for tha most part? Thumbs up fa havin’ this one take place in a bar, it sounds like! My Rating: 4.6


03. “Trunk Gone Bang”
Let’s hear it! >>> Gotta luv you; neva stoppin’!!! Sounds like a slightly-hotter beat, here! Feelin’ tha “trunk” environment, here; knockin’ and knockin’ and knock-to tha-in’!!! :tu Good rhymes goin’ on, here, wit tha “trunk” lyrics, “swangin’” err-where!! My Rating: 4.7


04. “Shake A Hater Off”
Nice to bring this song on here!! My Current Rating: 4.7


05. “Talk Tht Shit Nah”
Interestin’ wit “that” spelled as “tht”, here; let’s hear what we got! >>> Great song fa assholes ta “talk” some “shit!” Good job wit tha hook and thumbs up fa keepin’ ur attitude up! I just texted you and you texted me back; you produced all these jointz on here! Glad you stickin’ to my theory and just produce for yourself; it’s a good way to define yourself and only yourself!! Yea, “why he runnin’ from dat muthafuckin’ AK?” Talk about a pussy; he prolly don’t even have $20! Speakin’ of which, I had to block a girl on Facebook, yesterday, ‘cause she thought my prices of $20 - $50 for commercials and hosting was too high. It’s like, serious business only!! My Rating: 4.6


½time: A 4.6-rated CD, currently, up for five stars; keep up tha great work, K-Chill!!!!!!


06. “Tht Ain’t Ur Potna”
!!! >>> I like how this sounds; more great lyrics, too, about how people can take advantage of you! You can get away wit mentionin’ “Facebook” in your songs without gettin’ criticism from me; it’s not like you made this wack, so you can easily slide! Really likin’ this title, includin’ tha repeatin’ of it in tha hook! Longest song on here? You got a lil’ outro goin’ on, here; props for it, includin’ tha trill shit you sayin’ at tha end about dem “potnaz” not bein’ real/down 4 u! My Rating: 4.7


07. “Do It Like Me”
Keepin’ it goin’!! >>> Real quiet start? Where’s tha volume; did you forget to increase it? Don’t worry, I can increase it; only thing iz it sucks for everyone else who don’t have audio-editing programs… Nice job wit tha beat, here, includin’ your kick-ass attitude, once again! Thumbs up fa tha Southern lyrics, once again, “clutchin’” yo ass off, lol! My Rating: 4.6


08. “The Rap Game”
Talk about it; I know you been in “tha rap game” for a while, now! >>> Love your attitude, 24/7; spittin’ some good facts, here! Tha vibe doesn’t sound like 2K12; sounds a lil’ like mid-2000s! “Titanik,” huh? Hope you mention my name in one of these songs, soon! That’s right! “Where tha fat niggaz live;” keep bein’ big!! You got a 3rd verse goin’ on, here, and you keepin’ it goin’! My Rating: 4.7


09. “I Don’t Fuck With Them”
Let’s hear it! >>> Tha hook sounds pretty nice; really feelin’ all tha action goin’ on!! Good job wit tha verses, too; you really holdin’ dis down by yourself, all day!! My Rating: 4.7


10. “Come Get This Nigga”
Time ta end it; prolly gon keep it goin’ in a consistent way, right? >>> Of course!! Really feelin’ tha beat sound effects, here, and you’re really tryna get people reeled into your arena; you’re ready ta kick one of their asses! Good job wit tha verses; you really holdin’ shit down, to tha fullest!! My Rating: 4.6


Overall: Lol, only two different ratings ‘cause you were that consistent!! Thumbs up fa keepin’ it consistent; really hard to tell tha difference of my likings between each song, since they had nearly tha same consistency! Keep up tha great work, Mr. Chill!!!

Review #1,164: AWEtheNIQ "Crawfish Boil"

Reviewed on 7.12.2012 (Review #1,164)


Gonna get a review or two over with, now that I have a moment. Tonight, it’s AWEtheNIQ (pronounced “authentic”) with Crawfish Boil. With S.O.A.R. (School of Artists Records), let’s see what’s up. Also, I assume every song on here iz 2011 and older ‘cause each rip date iz April, 2011? Start Time: 9:07 PM | End Time: 9:31 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.

© 2012 CD Review (Review #1,164) reviewed on 7.12.2012 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.



01. “Sicily Boats”
Interesting title. >>> Good intro, real oldies style. Switched up to an East Coast vibe…; good rhymes. Really not into samples on tha hooks, but this’ll slide, just a little… My Rating: 3.4


02. “Anna’s Babies”
Interesting that you use letters to determine tha track numbers; that’s a first. I remember this song; good appearance, 2010 style! My Current Rating: 4.4


03. “Ah Dea”
Interesting spelling of tha words in this title. >>> Not really into sampled music, too much (sounds like “All My Life” (K-Ci & JoJo). For some reason, I’m startin’ to like this a lil’ more, once tha beat starts kickin’ in… Lyrics are kinda good, wit tha flow, but I can’t tolerate tha “stacks on deck.” Then again, at least you’re not a “money virgin” with me, so you can talk about money. Either way, I still think it’s a played-out topic… My Rating: 3.8


04. “Diamonds & Rubies” Feat. The School Of Artists: Azo The Wiz & Sun7ife
>>> Nothing standing out in tha beat or rhymes, here, for a song. Tha only thing that’s catchin’ my attention iz tha hook, with literally, tha “diamonds & rubies.” My Rating: 3.3


05. “Drinks On Me” Feat. Chris Jones & The School Of Artists: Azo The Wiz & Sun7life
Not my kinda title… >>> Nothing special for me, but not terrible. My Rating: 2.9


06. “Zydeco”
A lil’ above decent on a 2nd listen, months and months later. I still was like a faggot tha 1st time I heard this song, only months away from growin’ up! My Current Rating: 3.7


07. “Country Music”
? >>> Didn’t really understand tha first 16 seconds… Ehh, with tha title comin’ into play, this ain’t really up to par with me. Music sounds a lil’ better than some of tha jointz on here, though. My Rating: 3.2


08. “Theme Song” Feat. Azo The Wiz & Venisha Butler
I appreciate you doin’ business wit me wit this song, but this iz far from anything for me. When can we say, “R.I.P. Auto-Tune”? Thank God I gon have my own Top 2,000 Songs of 2000s decade-end countdown, soon, before Hip-Hop got ruined! My Current Rating: 1.4


½time: A lil’ below average, but not too much; 3.3 for tha CD rating, currently.


09. “Acquired Taste” Feat. Sun7ife, JG & Chris Jones
Can’t read tha 2nd artist on tha feature (had to look online)… >>> Not exciting music, but I like that title and how tha title iz applied to tha hook. Thumbs up for tha features, at least. My Rating: 3.6


10. “Check”
>>> Why does this sound like jacked-beat music? Almost wanna skip this; anyone can make this shit. Tha hook sounds a lil’ (very lil’) catchy wit that “check”list. My Rating: 2.5


11. “Blk Ivry” Feat. Sun7ife
Another hard-to-read title… >>> More below-average music for me… Tha hook sounds really good wit tha title repeating, but tha sample just ruined it for me! My Rating: 3.4


12. “ManMade” Feat. Sun7ife
>>> Another good intro fulla old music… This music’s slightly better than tha other shit on here, and tha rhymes are pretty good, too. Tha hook also sounds good; it’s like how I like tha previous one, only without a gay sample in tha background. My Rating: 3.8


13. “Flashout”
A really slow vybe, here, but it’s pretty tight wit your flow and rhymes. My Current Rating: 4.3


14. “Mic Myers”
>>> Really good beat start (best one?), so far, despite a name as tha title… Nice job wit tha consistent rhymes; hook iz nice, too! My Rating: 4.0


15. “Fork” Feat. Azo The Wiz
Nice and concrete for tha title. >>> I don’t hear anything that stands out, so far… All that “pussy” and “hoes” shit in tha 1st verse sounds like tha typical rap that I hear from every rapper, so it’s nothing to comment on; not horrible, but nothing special, either. My Rating: 3.0


16. “Problems Pt. 2” Feat. The School Of Artists: Azo The Wiz & Sun7ife
Why was this left off tha back cover? >>> Beat’s okay, but qualifies for some good hip-hop… Tha rhymes and tha hook’s pretty catchy; good job, overall. My Rating: 3.9


Overall: Just about decent; I’ll give it that. I had no intentions of reviewin’ this for a while, but I needed new music and a possible interview for this week’s radio show (already in two dayz, smh—never get a break). So, I’ll be sure to be hittin’ u up tomorrow (Friday, tha 13th). You’ve been a two-hit wonder on tha phone wit me, so if you don’t answer, I just move on to someone else ‘cause I can’t afford to cancel another show (had a no-show last Saturday; pretty disappointing, and just makes me wanna quit my show ASAP—doin’ that August 17, 2012).
