Review #1,406: Li Reep "Talk Of Da Town Vol. 1"

Reviewed on 6.01.2014 (Review #1,406)

Time fa anotha review. I was gonna review it last night, but when I have a day at work, I get tired real quick. But, straight outta Double D Records, once again, here’s De-C’s lil’ artist, Li Reep Talk Of Da Town Vol. 1. I’m not really a fan of Vol. 1 in titles, but I’m sure this won’t be too bad… As long as you have a good ear fa beats, and keep that 225 sound alive, just like De-C did, previously, then you aight! Start Time: 8:09 AM | End Time: 9:22 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! After I was robbed by two artists who claimed their “money [was] long,” 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 #1,406) reviewed on 6.01.2014 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “BunkTown Thang”
I like tha title… Looks like a real representation of Louisiana… >>> A nice vibe, fa tha hook; nice and undaground, tha way I love it! I like how you rhymed “significant other,” on tha 1st verse. Tha 2nd verse keeps it goin’, too… Even “nuttin’ on [her] hand;” crazy! My Rating: 4.3

02. “Dog Azz”
Yeah! >>> Nice vibe; feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha 1st verse, here… Very “pussy”licious, here? Nice hook; nice and descriptive! Ah, so vulgar, lol! Tha 2nd verse keeps this vulgar shit goin’, pretty good… Tha 3rd verse’s pretty nice, too; keep it goin’, once again! My Rating: 4.2

03. “Coo-Wee!!”
Nice excitement! >>> Likin’ tha beat start, here… Tha hook sounds good; sounds like some nice, old music… Tha 1st verse’s pretty nice; feelin’ good, here… Nice job wit tha 2nd verse, too, straight on dat “Mardi Gras” vibe. Pretty catchy and anti-like, on tha 3rd verse, here! My Rating: 4.3

04. “I Go Hard”
>>> This sounds great; feelin’ tha old Down Bad-like style, on tha hook! Miss these times! Now, err-body wanna make East Coast, bullshit, tryna-be-different-soundin’ shit, and they fail miserably!! Tha 1st verse’s pretty nice; great vibes!! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse now, and it sounds pretty consistent, too, wit tha flow; can’t deny it! Tha 3rd verse’s pretty raunchy and descriptive; gotta luv it! “Chew” your “dick”? Crazy, when gnawing comes into play! My Rating: 4.4

05. “S.M.D.” Feat. De-C
Nice feature… >>> Nice start wit you havin’ an “erection” fa tha start; don’t really hear that too much, in an intro! However, it sounds a lil’ like “This Is Why I’m Hot” on tha beat intro? Hearin’ tha hook, and oh, this iz what tha title stands for, I see (“Suck My Dick”)…; catchy hook. Tha 1st verse sounds nice, though tha “This Is Why I’m Hot” sound’s throwin’ me off… Nice “dog bones” shit ta start off tha 2nd verse, with De-C! Nice shit; feelin’ that undaground voice, thugged out! Tha 3rd verse from you’s soundin’ like a survival game. However, you have a kid? I dunno…; that’s usually tha fatal choice fa rappers! My Rating: 4.1

06. “Everyday” Feat. Alphacon
>>> Sounds like an online beat, here… A good 1st verse from you, but just take note: You’re, like, one or two years older than tha dude that had kids, and failed to stay focused, in tha Louisiana rap game! My favorite Louisiana artist, that iz, only 29… Anyway, lol @ tha hook: It sounds like you’re only secret, unless you’re “bustin’ a nut”? Fa real?! That’s when people “gon see [you]”? Crazy…! Hearin’ Alphacon on tha 2nd verse, and it sounds pretty good; sounds focused… Tha 3rd verse from you ain’t too bad… Gotta luv that you on dem “blue dolphins.” I have yet ta see what these jiggaz look like, in person, within tha years ta come! My Rating: 4.0

07. “Hate The Police”
>>> Startin’ off like Final Fantasy-like music and then, it transitioned to, like, ‘90s rap… It sounds pretty nice, here, and tha 1st verse’s pretty nice; consistent, catchy flow. Nice hook; I’m feelin’ what you feelin’! I hope “tha police” don’t catch me when I go visit tha abandoned Kings Park Psychiatric Center, located on Long Island, NY, as I just like to get footage… But yeah, nice hook! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty catchy, too; yeah, I hate that they “catch ya” ‘cause you “smell like weed smoke!” Tha 3rd verse sounds good; I hate that they’d judge you less if you “had white flesh.” It’s like, if only err-body would just stay in their lane? My Rating: 4.4

08. “Rosetta Stone (Remix)”
Think it’s just spelled “Rosetta” and not “Rosezetta”… >>> Not diggin’ tha low quality beginning, as well as it bein’ Drake; should just skip this… Regular rhymes; too bad tha hook fucked this up… Tha 2nd verse sounds catchy, too. Tha 3rd verse’s pretty good, too, though I don’t get why people should knock dudes fa “pissin’ sittin’ down.” It’s like, it doesn’t make tha piss get everywhere, as well as if your legs need ta be cold, you need that coldness on you ta pee! My Rating: 3.5

½time: So far, pretty nice; consistent and a great Louisiana vibe, fa me! A 4.2 fa tha CD rating, currently; keep it up!

09. “Say Wat I Want”
>>> “Grown-ass man” fa only “30”? I dunno; I’m almost 26, and I feel like tha youngest person, all tha time! I prolly gon still look like this at 40! But, I’m feelin’ your “fuck you” attitude, here; nice 1st verse and hook! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice; consistent wit how you comin’ through wit it! My Rating: 4.2

10. “(No Hook)”
Not sure what to expect… >>> “My dick taste like barbeque”? Talk about how different you come through wit it! LOL, so a hoe gon taste fried chicken, or somethin’, lol? Lots of rhymes, and then, tha title came outta nowhere (well, literally, without words)! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty vicious and consistent! Not even any breather room! As far as not puttin’ “a ring on [her] hand,” don’t you think that ruins rappers? I literally keep seein’ these young dads drop like flies, outta tha rap game; they retire by, like, 30, or somethin’! My Rating: 4.4

11. “Worst Luck”
>>> Doesn’t sound like an original hook, but it sounds catchy… Nice 1st verse; I’m feelin’ tha catchy flow you providin’ to tha table… Gotta luv your “Polo horses,” too! Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty nice, too… It kinda reminds me of this one artist I don’t wanna bring up. They had this nice undaground feel, but then, their kids got in tha way (smfh, again!!)! They flash so much cash in their pics, but I only made $20 off of them, within four years! Really? That can’t pay off my loans!! My Rating: 4.1

12. “Died N Your Arms” Feat. Alphacon
Hope this ain’t what I think it iz, which I think it iz (sample on tha hook)… >>> Not really inta songs that sound depressin’, or are about real shit, but this one ain’t too bad… A nice, strong 1st verse from you, here; I feel ya. And, I was right about tha sample on tha hook, smh; not terrible, like tha Drake one, though. Hearin’ Alphacon on tha 2nd verse, and it sounds betta, fa this track; I’m diggin’ this! Hearin’ you on tha 3rd verse, and this iz pretty nice! Even a dude that “had a mouth fulla gold;” hope I can see that again, soon! Haven’t seen it since October 6, 2007! My Rating: 4.2

13. “Not Gone Let U Go”
Gotta go take a shit before I get ta this… >>> Damn, iz it me, or when I take an intermission from listenin’ to a CD, it starts ta get funny/shitty? Caught me off-guard with this R&B hook… Ehh, it ain’t that bad; I can feel it. Afta a minute, tha 1st verse’s here… Okay, kinda feelin’ it; you seductin’ this lady… Tha 2nd verse’s also good; can’t complain too much… That “make me wanna eat ya up…” line’s pretty in-there, lol! My Rating: 3.7

14. “Getting Blowed”
>>> Nice beat start; sounds like it gon be good… I’m likin’ tha hook; it’s all about hangin’ in there! I know I’m strugglin’ wit gettin’ people in Louisiana ta make me a priority, but at times, I kinda hang in there… Nice job wit tha 1st verse, holdin’ it down… Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty good with this sad shit goin’ on, in tha world… Tha 3rd verse sounds like tha truth, especially how, “Niggaz changin’ like tha weather.” I totally agree wit dat; can’t believe how many 100s of people from Louisiana changed on me! I don’t even get likes or comments on my shit, anymore! My Rating: 4.2

15. “Hard N The Trap” Feat. CJG
>>> What was tha reversed shit in tha beginning? *Checks* Pointless; why reverse somethin’ pointless, that I can’t even understand? Nice hook, though, and tha 1st verse’s pretty nice… Again, tha “bustin’ a nut” line? You recycled yo own shit? Hearin’ tha C.J.G. dude on tha 2nd verse, and it sounds pretty good; catchy voice! Great job; keep this shit poppin’! I like you on tha 3rd verse, wit tha, “Get it hard or soft, like Taco Bell!” And, tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse’s CJG, comin’ through wit some wicked shit! Nice voice, once again! Why tha reverse shit toward tha end, once again? My Rating: 4.2

16. “Azz Whooped” Feat. De-C & Mayhem
>>> Great hook wit this chantin’; definitely nice on this tough beat! LOL, I thought y’all said, “You gon get ya fuckin’ answers!!” Catchy title part; catchy flow! You on tha 1st verse’s pretty nice; yeah, “sneak somethin’!” Nice job wit this shit; can’t deny it… A near-soundin’ Bone Thugs-like vibe, on tha 2nd verse? Nice job, De-C! You know you got shit on lock, here! Or, iz this De-C on tha 3rd verse? Nearly tha same voices, though it’s pretty nice! Very consistent wit these rhymes!! My Rating: 4.5

17. Outtro
A double “T”? >>> Why do you consider this a “mixtape,” smh? It’s an album, it sounds like! There was no blending or hosting, so therefore, it’s not a “mixtape;” sick of people gettin’ it twisted! Thought there was rappin’ on here, but it’s just an “Outtro”, spelled wrong… My Rating: N/A

Overall: I thought this was pretty nice. It seemed like I liked De-C’s CD betta, but statistically, you did betta ‘cause you had less songs that weren’t for me. Glad you have your shit on lock, and keep it up! Double D Records got shit on lock, still; can’t wait ta review tha ’01 CD, wheneva tha time may come!
