Review #1,420: YT Triz "Tales From Crime Hill"

Reviewed on 11.24.2014 (Review #1,420)

Got ya boy FrankieThaLuckyDog here, finna review somethin’ a lil’ different than usual! This next artist I finna review goes by YT Triz, and he hails from Orlando, FL! That’s right, tha big Florida!! I first discovered him a few months ago on Music Choice Rap wit tha song, “How Can I Lose,” featuring Bobby Shmurda. And yes, I’m all about dat Shmoney, ‘bout dat Shmoney, Shmoney squad!! Really diggin’ them at tha moment! So, with that bein’ said, I wanna see what this lil’ Florida dude be about… I also believe he just celebrated a 23rd birthday, a few weeks ago; HBD!! Diggin’ tha dreads and Florida grind, so here goes my review for YT Triz’s Tales From Crime Hill, released on Poe Boy Music Group! Start Time: 7:59 AM | End Time: 8:58 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!!

01. “Crime Hill”
Oh, I’m so anticipated for this release, right now!! >>> Anticipatin’ intro by tha DJs, here; lots of luv ta you, “YT!” Ooh, hearin’ your grimy, gutta delivery on tha verse, here! Definitely feelin’ how you comin’ and tha choir behind tha beat sounds even more anticipatin’!! Feelin’ his “dark” theme, wit these lyrics! I luv hangin’ out after dark and all dat shit, ya dig? Wow, really consistent wit tha rhymes; you ain’t stoppin’ at all, bruh!! “And, youse a fuckin’ nobody;” gutta shit!! Raw shit!! Luv how you said, “Welcome to Crime Hill, muthafucka!!,” at tha end, as an excellent way ta introduce this mixtape! My Rating: 4.5

02. “Bad Vibes”
LOL, glad you speakin’ on ‘em! It’s all about darkness and how you comin’ through wit it!! >>> Gotta mention: Gotta luv your name: “YT Triz!” Feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha hook, here! That’s right, counterattack those “bad vibes!” There so many pussies out there; I feel like we just keep kickin’ ‘em like they soccer balls, or some shit! Feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha 1st verse, here, soundin’ like Ace Hood wit tha flow! Florida style to tha fullest! Beat’s definitely official—dat southern shit dat I luv! Still feelin’ how you comin’ through on this track, here, as tha 2nd verse’s just as hot! Whoo!! Gotta luv your rapid flow!! Tha 3rd verse’s tha shit, too! It’s true: Once you get “dollaz,” then, “they” be hatin’! Also, I luv how I have Mass Appeal behind me now, and niggaz be ignorin’ me worse than they eva have! It’s like, they dunno what ta say! Like, “How’d tha hell dat nigga [Frankie] get a label behind him?” I know they bitch-asses fuckin’ jealous of me havin’ a label behind me! But, I soldier on!! My Rating: 4.5

03. “How Can I Lose” Feat. Bobby Shmurda
Whooooo!! Shit-to-tha-fuckin’-yeah!!! This my anthem, as well as dat “Computers” (Rowdy Rebel & Bobby Shmurda)!! Gotta luv tha collab, from FL to NY! Tha hook’s true as fuck: “How can I lose when I came here wit nothin’?” I agree wit myself, as I neva initiate bullshit! Really feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha 1st verse, strictly enjoyin’ yourself as a newbie! Gotta luv tha winnin’ YT Triz!! I usually be listenin’ to this song on repeat… for, like, almost two hours in a row! What iz that, like, 20x in a row?! Gotta luv it!! And, Bobby’s on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some catchy-ass shit fa tha streetz! Luv those lil’ pause parts: “My niggaz say nothin’. ‘Whoo…Whoo…Whoo…’!” And, “I’m screamin’ out, ‘Fuck ‘em! Fuck ‘em, fuck ‘em, fuck ‘em’!” Oh, this joint neva gets old!! I wanna get back to dat Florida again and hopefully, get ta do business wit you and tha Shmurda / Shmoney gang, one day! Did I also forget to mention that this music video’s pretty nice, too! Great vibes in tha hot weather, outside! It makes me feel like a champion at work while it’s in my head! And, tha 3rd verse’s nice: “I finna blow, like it’s an O, I finna smoke;” consistent flow! Shout out ta Poe Boy and Music Choice Rap fa recognizin’!! My Current Rating: 5.0

04. “How Could You Relate”
LOL, from present tense to past tense, lol, back to back! Now, a “could!” Let’s see how much I can “relate” (usually, I never, but “relate” to diggin’ what you bringin’)! >>> Startin’ off wit a lil’ bit of a mainstream vibe wit tha “club” and how you sound, here… Almost thought it was gonna be shitty auto-tune on your voice, but you sound great, here, especially wit this beat! Oh, tight shit, here! Cut out tha “fake!” It’s all about bein’ real, just like yourself! Hearin’ tha 1st verse, and it ain’t that bad. If this was someone else, I’d prolly say that this sounds like a shitty mainstream rapper… Either way, it sounds like a potential single for tha future… Tha 2nd verse’s kinda soundin’ a lil’ shitty wit tha “racks” and “Bandz A Make Her Dance” quote, but I can’t front on you fa bein’ “on dem Xanz!” Overall, despite tha 2nd verse, I’m really diggin’ this! My Rating: 4.2

05. “I’m Ready” Feat. IceBerg
What do we got here? Hope it cold and goes hard! >>> Startin’ off wit a gangsta style, here, wit tha lyrics? Sounds like a good undaground song, here… Must be tha IceBerg dude on tha 1st verse… Sounds like some mo 305 / 954-like heat, just like you, Triz! Feelin’ tha gangsta shit, as always! Good job makin’ your debut wit me! And, tha 2nd verse’s nice, here! Almost am confused at who’s who, but y’all tearin’ this up! My Rating: 4.0

06. “2nd Life”
Let’s hear it! >>> Didn’t expect dat to be you on tha 1st verse, here… Either way, sounds like it’s a good start… Startin’ ta catch onto it a lil’ more wit tha more you spit… Keep winnin’ ‘cause I know you ain’t gon “lose!” Glad you “don’t give a fuck!” That’s what’s up; you gotta! Pretty gutta hook wit tha, “I don’t give a fuck (give a fuck) right now,” shit that repeats! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice, too, and tha beat’s soundin’ a lil’ betta, fa me! Keep them rhymes comin’!! Tha 3rd verse iz nice, too! Yeah, fuck all they “talkin’” and bullshit! I know no one more consistent than me, and I know that I’m valuable! Fuck what they thinkin’! Glad you keepin’ this gutta shit continuin’!! My Rating: 4.3

07. “Vamonos”
Lookin’ forward ta this title… >>> Nice beat start; you’re anticipatin’ me right now! Diggin’ how you comin’ through on tha 1st verse, here, wit this nice beat! Oh, that undaground heat!! “Smoke ‘em like it’s marijuana;” shit yeah!! Lots of shit goin’ on here, wit tha 1st verse; nice job… Tha hook’s catchy wit sayin’, “Vamonos,” ta these bitch-niggaz; glad you put me in an anticipatin’, ‘notha rap zone! Nice job wit how you comin’ through wit tha 2nd verse, too…! My Rating: 4.2

½time: So far, I’m definitely diggin’ this Florida heat from you, here, Triz! You got tha streetz on lock wit your grimy, gutta dedication! Tha beats are nice, and you’re not boring wit your rhymes! Like, it ain’t all about “money,” thank God! So far, I’m ratin’ this CD a 4.4, but we shall see how this continues! Before I continue this review, I have ta go take a shit; shit! It’s cold up here in Northeast PA, at tha moment, so when tha cold touches my feet, tha shit in me brews, lol, ya dig? SMH… *Goes to shit at 8:27 AM…* *Returns from shittin’ at 8:31 AM…* Thank God, that was fast!

08. “In My Hood”
Yeah! Let’s hear this Orlando dose of livin’!! >>> Oh, maybe I should’ve waited ‘til this song to shit? Almost am thrown off by tha weird voice effect on tha hook… Can’t say I gon 100% knock this, so we’ll see how it progresses… For now, tha hook’s ehh; thought it would’ve went way harder!! Tha beat’s pretty nice, but damn, you got tha weird voice goin’ on in tha 1st verse, too? Naw… Rhymes are okay, but it ain’t too grimy… Well, at 1:21, you start to get that original, grimy delivery I started to know from you… Not really diggin’ tha start to tha 2nd verse wit tha repetitive flow… I think I can’t wait ‘til this ends, sadly… It also ruined tha chance at a five-star-rated CD from me (only qualifies when every song’s at least a 4.0-rated song, from me)! My Rating: 2.9

09. “Thought”
Let’s see how we can continue from dat… >>> An okay start wit tha hook… It doesn’t even remind me of you, at first, as it just sounds like a regular rapper… Tha 1st verse ain’t too bad, here, though between tha beat and how you sound, it sounds plain… Tha 2nd verse’s just okay for me; I’m startin’ ta get bored from this… My Rating: 3.1

10. “Preach”
Maybe, some more anticipation, here, since Young Dolph has a song wit this same title, which goes hard! >>> Beat’s just okay, once again, but tha hook a lil’ betta than tha previous track… Tha 1st verse ain’t too bad; regular rhymes, here, though nothin’ special… Tha 2nd verse a lil’ betta, here, though still a boring track, a lil’… My Rating: 3.3

11. “Breathe”
Keepin’ this goin’… >>> Not really feelin’ tha beat start; a lil’ poppy for me…? Your flow’s a lil’ more catchier, this time, so let’s see how you do, overall… Tha hook’s a lil’ more creative wit tha breathin’, but still, not like a lightning strike fa me, as far as catchiness… Tha 2nd verse aight, but I can’t really get inta this pop-rap beat… Even got a 3rd verse, here… Once again, it’s aight; beat’s startin’ ta become repetitive, too… My Rating: 2.6

12. “I Don’t Love These Hoes”
Next… >>> Okay, this way betta wit tha start, here, wit tha “pillz” and beat!! Soundin’ nice, on tha hook; a lil’ iffy wit tha weird voice on tha 2nd ½ of tha hook, but still, I’m a lil’ impressed, so far… Tha 1st verse sounds like you’re a pro, older than 22, here! You got dat mastermind perspective, here, and I respect it… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ decent; feelin’ what you “love,” here… Not really diggin’ tha ending, here; enough wit tha gay-soundin’ voice! My Rating: 3.6

13. “Last Night”
Hmm… >>> A random intro, here; glad you luv ta “smoke weed!” Sounds like a completely different voice, here? Sounds like a lyrical rapper on tha 1st verse, and it’s decent, wit this beat… Tha hook ain’t too bad; it’s only aight fa me, wit tha sound and what you bringin’ to tha table… Tha 2nd verse’s aight, too; nice advice ta “keep” peeps in tha right lane… “Let’s smoke weed until our vision blurry;” you already know! My Rating: 3.5

14. “Thug Niggas”
Sad that this mixtape’s almost done… >>> Feelin’ tha ‘90s-like rap beat, here… Ooh, even got a female “la-la-la”in’ on tha hook! Iz that you on tha 1st verse? Sounds good, regardless… Tha 2nd verse’s nice, too; sounds like you’re rappin’ in tha ‘90s, despite bein’ an actual ‘90s baby! My Rating: 4.4

15. “Dead Homies”
“How” will we end this? >>> Pop start? Nope! Wasn’t sure what that first 13 seconds was, but I hear a true southern beat, here, as well as tha normal you! Whoo, diggin’ this track and hook! Scary about tha “dead homies numbers still in my phone;” I’ve had that happen to me wit Louisiana artists I was dealin’ wit! It’s crazy! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and this tha normal voice I’m used to, from you; grimy and gutta, tha way I luv it!! Wow, “You coulda least told me, ‘Bye,’ nigga;” powerful lyrics, here!! Tha 2nd verse’s nice, too; you stayin’ on topic and keepin’ this grimy shit comin’ fa tha streetz! My Rating: 4.5

Overall: I’m so glad I got ta take tha time out ta review this CD! I know most of tha 2nd ½ of tha CD was somewhat a disappointment ta me, ironically, after tha “shit” I took. However, for tha most part, you really impressed me wit your consistent bangerz! Keep stayin’ on tha grind! I gon keep supportin’ you! FWM!!
