Review #1,396: Joey Jihad & Meek Mill "LeBron & Kobe (Hosted by DJ Cosmic Kev)"

Reviewed on 3.31.2014 (Review #1,396)

My final review for this month iz actually somethin’ from 2010, and I downloaded it September 13, 2012. Funny how this and tha previous review I did, it had to do with September 13th. Also, a lot has happened since I got this; what a different world I was in, but it’s time for tha future! This, right chea, iz Joey Jihad & Meek Mill LeBron & Kobe (Hosted by DJ Cosmic Kev)! Yesterday actually marked six years since I reviewed Joey’s Philly classic, Tha Big Dog Yard, and I’m glad I’m finally gettin’ to review this one, randomly! We’ll see how we do, here… Start Time: 3:03 PM | End Time: 4:25 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! After I was robbed by an artist who claimed they “get money,” hearin’ about how much you “got money” and anything “money” really bothers me. If you have not done business wit me before, I won’t tolerate “money” talk in tha music!!

© 2014 CD Review (Review #1,396) reviewed on 3.31.2014 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. Cosmic Kev “Phil Jackson Intro”
Cosmic Kev doin’ a lil’ intro, here… >>> “Philly’s #1 DJ;” sounds like Funk Flex, in a way! Feelin’ tha aggression! I agree about “both of these niggaz ta get back together,” when it comes ta Joey & Meek! It’s like, what happened? “Bossman” still remains, possibly, my favorite rap song of all-time!! I’ll always remember March 13, 2008 @ 5:01 PM, when my boy, Juice, wrote down who was singin’ “Bossman”! From there, it was on! My Rating: N/A

02. Meek Mill Feat. T.I., Vado & Rick Ross “Rozay Red (Remix)”
Right before Meek blew up; let’s see, here… >>> Sounds a lil’ familiar, though I know this shit’s old… Either way, tha hook’s that catchy, Meek shit! Good shit on tha 1st verse from Meek; you already know what it iz! Tight shit wit mega consistency from :41 - :50!! T.I. comin’ through wit consistency on tha 2nd verse; diggin’ his mid-2000’s voice! Vado comin’ through wit some nice, drug-type, consistent-like shit on tha 3rd verse; gotta feel it, too! Ricky on tha 4th verse… Neva really inta him, but surprisingly, I like that Spanish-like shit! My Rating: 4.4

03. Meek Mill “Indian Bounce”
Let’s hear it! >>> You know I dig “Indian”-like shit! Nice sample in tha background! This iz more like it; not no gay-soundin’ female, high-pitched samples! And, tha crazy, consistent rhymes of Meek Mill on tha 1st verse; whoo!! Why tha censored “fuck” at 1:09? Gay wit tha clean shit… Either way, it still’s pretty tight! You didn’t censor “shit” (tha echo) at 2:07; bad editing! My Rating: 4.6

04. Meek Mill Feat. Black Deniro “BMF (Freestyle)”
>>> This rapped-out beat that everyone raps on… Feelin’ your aggression on tha hook, Meek! Feelin’ tha drug shit, too! Now, it’s not clean; okay, then… Great shit on tha 1st verse, here; can’t deny how hard you go, Meek! Tha 2nd verse sounds good, too; keep it goin’, Meek! Let’s see how Deniro does on tha 3rd verse… Of course, just sounds as good as I heard him on that Flamers! G-Shit at its finest, here!! My Rating: 4.2

05. Meek Mill “Throw It In The Bag (Freestyle)”
Almost thought this was tha “In My Bag” throwback shit, but it’s not… >>> Sounds good; at least it’s only 69 seconds… My Rating: 4.3

06. Meek Mill “Over (Freestyle)”
>>> Seems like such oldness wit this beat, comin’ from a 2014 perspective, right now… Either way, catchy way you remade tha hook, and tha verse’s soundin’ pretty nice, too! As always, ya gotta luv tha aggression! I don’t even mind tha “money” shit, here, and you was “polo everythang”in’ it, like my boy, Bubba, outta Baton Rouge! My Rating: 4.0

07. Meek Mill Feat. Black Deniro “Freestyle”
Just a “freestyle”, with no title? >>> More like “Make ‘Em Say Ugh”, here… Pretty consistent and tight on tha 1st verse, Meek! I like tha “” shit! Very consistent, and without any transition, Black Deniro came in, outta nowhere, on tha 2nd verse!! Whoo, whoo, whoo!!! “I’m immune to tha fumes;” already!! “And, she on my D-I-C;” “K”less, like without a gun, huh, lol? My Rating: 4.6

08. Meek Mill “Beamer, Benz Or Bentley (Freestyle)”
So 2010, here; let’s keep it goin’! >>> Yea, I’ll admit; it’s pretty hot! Tha more I think tha beat gon make it cheesy/tha past, tha more you come through harder on tha track! Pretty quick, lol… My Rating: 4.2

09. Meek Mill Feat. Bump J & Gillie Da Kid “Just Like You”
Looks anticipatin’, here… >>> Biggie on tha sample, here; sounds great when it’s provided for “you,” Meek! Nice beat, too! And, it’s “’09,” here, accordin’ to tha intro… Sounds like Gillie on tha 1st verse, here… Sounds good; sounds like he’s 10 years younger, or somethin’? Well, I guess we’ll consider it a concrete, 23-year-old… Definitely feelin’ tha rhymes, though tha flow’s what’s makin’ it real hot! Or wait, here’s Gillie on tha 2nd verse; tha ID’s got Gillie first, on tha feature, but tha back cover’s got Bump, first. I guess I should always go wit tha back cover? Either way, Bump did tha damn thang wit that delivery, and Gillie’s got tha nice rhymes fa tha street, here! Now, I must say: A concrete 30-year-old, here! Endin’ tha joint off wit you on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through wit that gangsta shit! Nice shit! My Rating: 4.3

10. Meek Mill Feat. Pep Shooter “Daily On The Block”
I like this featured artist’s name, as well as tha title; could be a double positive, here! >>> Nice beat you chose, here, and now, we got a T.I. sample; nice! Got tha Shooter on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some great, street shit; gotta feel him! “I’m straight fiya;” yup! Nice job, tha whole way ‘round! And, here you are on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some nice, drug shit, “on tha block!” Kinda like your ’08 song… A 3rd verse from you, here, too… It sounds just as good; gotta feel ya! Oh, Pep snuck in, too; glad ta hear him again! My Rating: 4.3

11. Meek Mill “Banned From TV (Freestyle)”
A lil’ over a minute, here… >>> Nice beat you chose ta rap on, here; good shit! You have a ton of rhymes ta spit; your saliva must be dirty as fuck, based off of how much of a hustla you are!! My Rating: 4.4

12. Meek Mill Feat. Mike Knox “Started Something”
This looks like an interestin’ collaboration! >>> Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, no, no MJ fa me!! Why his track in tha background? And, you’re not one ta rap off of somethin’ faster than 100 BPM or whateva! Though it’s terrible fa me ta listen ta this beat/sample in tha background, your rhymes on tha 1st verse’s pretty serious! I guess Mike Knox just had random talkin’ parts on here? You’re on tha 2nd verse, and it’s good. Once again, a major decrease ‘cause of this sample! My Rating: 2.7

13. Meek Mill “I’m Leering”
I like this title; I thought it was “learning,” fa a sec.… >>> Sounds nice; feelin’ tha repetitive 2nd part of tha hook, wit tha title repeatin’! Tha flow on tha 1st verse iz more on tha mainstream tip, wit tha Rick Ross-like flow. I like your fast/punchline-consistent flow much betta… Tha 2nd verse’s a lil’ betta; I can feel tha consistent punchlines… My Rating: 4.1

14. Meek Mill Feat. Ms. Jade “I’m The Shit”
Back cover ain’t give Ms. Jade credit, on tha feature; let’s see this collab! >>> Beat’s pretty nice, once again, with what you chose! And, you’re comin’ through pretty nicely, on tha 1st verse! Not really into some of tha hook, wit tha “swag”-type “shit,” but part of it sounds nice, wit how you come through wit it! This iz Ms. Jade on tha 2nd verse? Sounds like a younger version of tha Ms. Jade I was used to, back in 2002… I’m feelin’ how she has part of your flow in her flow, so at least this iz a plus… And, you got a 3rd verse here, comin’ through wit mo “shit,” which iz nice… My Rating: 4.1

15. Meek Mill “Pledge Of Allegiance”
Wow, y’all forgot tha “I” in “Allegiance”, on tha back cover… >>> Weak start fa me, wit this “swag” and “money” hook, when it comes ta what you “pledge” to! Either way, this ain’t bad; feelin’ what you got goin’ on wit tha verse, even though there’s an obsession of “money” references, here… Startin’ ta sound pretty nice wit these punchlines, throughout tha 2nd ½ of this!! My Rating: 4.0

½time: So far, pretty nice; diggin’ every single joint but that MJ shit… Despite that, you got a 4.2 for tha CD rating, currently!

16. Meek Mill “I Don’t Like The Look Of This (Willy Wonka)”
Bleh…? >>> Yea, not really into this beat, and had like Da Backwudz’s joint betta… Either way, you always keep it comin’ wit tha rhymes, at least! I like that “twisted like a pretzel” line; good shit! Consistent, tha whole way ‘round, here! My Rating: 4.1

17. Cosmic Kev “Interlude”
Yes, an interlude! >>> Oh yes, dude comin’ through correct wit tha hostin’, here!! “You see me…;” already! And yea, keep stressin’ that they need ta return together! Thank God, I neva beef wit anyone; people only cause problems wit me ‘cause they can’t accept my support! You got one of tha best voices in tha state of PA; thumbs up fa tha interlude!! My Rating: N/A

18. Joey Jihad “Intro”
Okay, I didn’t realize ‘til a few songs in that it was gon be ½ Meek, ½ Joey… >>> Nice beat you picked here, Joey, on tha intro, here! And, tha rhymes sound pretty nice, too! Gotta luv how you comin’ through wit it! Let’s see who scores more! Meek scored 62.3 points, outta 15 jointz, and averaged out to 4.2; we’ll see how you do, Haddy! Glad you keepin’ this shit goin’; a classic Philly voice, all day!! My Rating: 4.5

19. Joey Jihad Feat. Redi Roc “Twin Towers”
This looks like it gon be tight! >>> Feelin’ tha beat you chose, Joey, and tha rhymes are definitely nice from you, here! You comin’ through wit some nice shit; feelin’ tha rhymes, includin’ tha “cinnamon” shit. Let’s hear this Redi Roc dude on tha 2nd verse… Tha flow could be a lil’ catchier, but tha rhymes are soundin’ good… Punchlines are pretty serious, here; I like how he fucks wit “chopped-and-screwed,” too! Great near-ending wit tha “butter fly” / “butterfly” shit! My Rating: 4.3

20. Joey Jihad “Pocket Full Of Mugga (Remix)”
>>> Pretty serious, here; kinda like tha English version of that “Indian Bounce”, to me, wit this sample, so far! Pretty serious wit your verse, here, Haddy; sick, consistent shit!! Luv how it’s so fast wit how you comin’ through, on tha mic!!! My Rating: 4.5

21. Joey Jihad “Hello – Good Morning (Freestyle)”
>>> Though I neva anticipate people rappin’ on this beat, I have ta say, you’re comin’ through hard, fast and consistent!! My Rating: 4.4

22. Joey Jihad “OMG”
>>> At least it’s not tha Usher/ song… Anticipatin’ intro, especially that you still rep fa “G-Squad!” Tha hook sounds catchy; it sounds like bitches cheerin’ fa you, or somethin’, but it’s still good, lol! Sounds like some pretty serious, gutta, grimy-like shit on tha verse, here! You really tha shit, Haddy; you already know!! LOL @ tha “Mike Jones” part… My Rating: 4.1

23. Joey Jihad “Rep Ya Set”
>>> Sounds good; diggin’ your delivery, as you sound catchy, here! Pretty good wit all these rhymes, and betta yet, I just confirmed a follow-up job interview while reviewin’ this joint! You know!! My Rating: 4.0

24. Joey Jihad “You Here Wit Me”
>>> Glad you’re still “in [your] bag!” Meek-like term, but I’m glad you mentioned it, like I did, earlier in tha review! Tha hook’s pretty good ova this beat… Hearin’ you on tha verse, and it sounds like you got tha aggression and flow on lock! Most definitely do you got shit on lock, bruh! Wow @ 1:17 – 1:25; I definitely feel it in ya voice!! Even mentionin’ “destroy and rebuild it,” like it was tha ’08 times!! My Rating: 4.4

25. Joey Jihad Feat. Jumbo Beatz “Stacks Up”
>>> Not sure what ta make wit this hook… Kinda like how Meek fucked up wit tha MJ beat/sample, this iz your version of a slight hiccup, though it ain’t terrible… Tha beat’s nice, but tha hook’s got some auto-tune in Mr. Jumbo’s voice… Either way, hearin’ you on tha verse, and it sounds great! Just feelin’ tha vibe a lot! Reminds me of those great times of ’08 wit this beat, surprisingly! I have ta say, this wasn’t as bad as I thought it was gonna be! My Rating: 4.2

26. Joey Jihad Feat. Black Deniro “Turn It Out (Remix)”
Whoo @ tha collab! >>> Okay, supa tight on tha 1st verse, here, wit how you’re comin’ through on tha verse!!! Shitload of rhymes comin’ through, here!! And, though tha hook’s repetitive and simple, it’s catchy, and you get it in wit this kinda shit! Shit yeah @ Deniro on tha 2nd verse, though why a clean verse? I’m definitely feelin’ tha shit he bringin’ to tha table on tha verse, though; definitely a nice collab! He can get it in and get away wit tha ladies, on tha mic, when it comes ta this fast delivery-type shit! Got a 3rd verse, here, from you, and it’s just as good as tha 1st verse! Also, luvin’ tha laser-like bass in tha beat! Pretty serious how y’all came through on this track!! Y’all ate “it like a vegetable!!” My Rating: 4.5

27. Joey Jihad “Lambo Doors”
A longer joint, here, wit 4:40 on tha length… >>> Really slow, compared to tha previous jointz… Ehh, not really my style, especially for a mixtape! Sounds like a bad interpretation of T-Pain on tha hook! Let’s call this your fuck-up song! Oh God, even you usin’ a lil’ bit of that dick-suckin’ shit, on your vocals (a-tune)? No………… I’m a lil’ on tha tired side, especially since I have ta get up at 3:20 tomorrow, fa work… So, I’ll just close my eyes fa tha remainin’ 3:16… Fuck tha rest of this, includin’ tha outro! “No homo”? More like, “Yes, homo,” fa this shit!! My Rating: 1.1

28. Joey Jihad “Out The Gun”
>>> Glad we’re back to normal… Kinda mainstream, still, wit how this sounds; I don’t think you should do female music… It’s kinda like wit Meek; I can’t take him serious when he does all that “fuck you ‘til tha morning comes”-type shit. Y’all more on a street level, and I’d rather just hear shit about tha streetz, non-stop! Tha 2nd verse iz whateva; whateva!! Pretty boring once we’re up to 2:06… C’mon, nah! My Rating: 2.3

29. Joey Jihad “Pocket Full Of Mugga”
Original version, this time? How am I ‘pose ta recover from those previous jointz? >>> Still sounds pretty nice, like tha remix, except :48, where it says, “Diamonds in my chainz;” WTF was that? Tha 2nd verse iz nice, too; can’t deny it… My Rating: 4.4

30. Joey Jihad Feat. HH Spady “Salute Me”
There’s a bonus joint afta this, but only 30 tracks are in this folder… Either way, let’s see what we got, here… >>> I dunno how excited I can be about this one… Almost sounds like it’s tryna force itself ta be accepted by tha mainstream, or somethin’. Either way, nice 1st verse from Spady, though, as it has that consistent Philly sound! Even you comin’ through nicely on tha 2nd verse, Haddy; gotta feel that consistency you spittin’!! My Rating: 4.2

31. Kevin Durant “Celebrity”
It’s not in tha folder… My Rating: N/A

Overall: Wow, it’s over, after 1 ½ years of waiting, lol? Anyway, I thought this was pretty good. Surprisingly, I liked Meek’s side better; maybe, I prolly would’ve liked his less, if it was material released in 2013 or somethin’. Too bad Joey fucked up twice! He would’ve beat Meek if them gay, “yes, homo” #27 & #28 jointz weren’t on here! But, interestin’ for a compilation of tha two; I almost thought they did a bunch of tracks together, and that “Bossman” was gonna be on here!
