Review #1,430: Dizzy a.k.a. Raw D.I. & Mugsy "Luv 4 Da Streets"

Reviewed on 1.31.2015 (Review #1,430)

Don’t really got time for any reviewz, especially since I’m swappin’ one of my dayz to come in tomorrow, but lemme get into this: Sponsored by P.C.O. Entertainment, here’s a random review just to get outta tha way. From 2009, this iz Dizzy a.k.a. Raw D.I. & Mugsy Luv 4 Da StreetsStart Time: 4:21 PM | End Time: 5:21 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! 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 (which I consider ‘typical’ topics), I’m not buyin’ it!

© 2015 CD Review (Review #1,430) reviewed on 1.31.2015 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. Intro (Raj Smoove)
>>> Nice intro from Raj, includin’ this beat in tha background… My Rating: N/A

02. “Love For The Streets” feat. Nutt Da Kidd
Lemme see… >>> Really diggin’ tha singin’; prolly would’ve added it if I would’ve known it in 2009! Definitely a catchy-ass hook for “tha streets!” Here’s Dizzy on tha 1st verse, comin’ through, hittin’ “tha club wit [his] fitted and a fresh white tee;” whoot! Gotta keep all those fresh styles alive and not regular clothes! Rappers and celebrities like me ‘posed to be special, above tha normal people! Sucks that they “wanna Soulja-Slim [Nutt],” but he spittin’ some nice rhymes fa “tha streets” on tha 2nd verse! Great shit, right chea! Lots of consistency for this ’09 tracks, all about “tha streets!” Tha 3rd verse’s Muggs and they sound like a heavier-set dude, lol? Nice verse from this P.C.O. reprasenta, since they said, “P.C.O., we in tha buildin’!” LOL @ how it went silent when he said, “Bitch…bitch…bitch…,” and then, tha hook came back on; whoot!! Whoot!! My Rating: 4.7

03. We Got Love
>>> Eatin’ somethin’ in tha beginning? Sounds like a skit, though I thought it was a song… Nice lil’ skit, feelin’ in tha zone! LOL @ “Myspace;” that song was only two years old at tha time, but felt so long ago! Like, right now, this CD’s six years old, but it seems like tha same age difference as tha two years ago with “Myspace” when this mixtape dropped, lol. My Rating: N/A

04. “Bish Wazam”
! >>> Nice hook and really-nice beat, here; definitely diggin’ tha true, southern quality, here! Gotta luv tha title and tha “wazam!” Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some catchy rhymes and deliverin’ ‘em nicely! Here’s Mugsy on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some nice G-shit! LOL, “Damn, Muggs, you do more than rap;” that’s nice! It’s all about doin’ as much as you can in media! Mo from Mugsy on tha 3rd verse—okay, alternatin’ between Dizzy & Mugsy on tha 3rd verse; nice! A quick verse, but tha alternation worked! My Rating: 4.4

05. “How Ya Feel”
>>> Ooh, a “pill”-poppin’ anthem? Even “smoke dat kill?” And, “ya rounds?” Gotta luv this hook! A regular-soundin’ hook ova this catchy beat, but you gotta luv tha content!! Tha 1st verse from Muggs sounds nice! “This purple won’t get me higher;” gotta agree! Once it hits throw-up levels, you’ve basically maxed yourself out, lol! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, as well; great job, Mugsy, fa holdin’ shit down… Now, time fa some Dizzy on tha 3rd verse: “Muthafuck how a nigga feel;” diggin’ tha aggression! Gotta luv pickin’ up hours at my job, but I hate when I can’t get overtime, at times! Like, I’m glad I’m pickin’ up more hours tomorrow, but I hate that I gotta give up one of my dayz, during tha week; I ain’t that over on hours! Only 35 a week? Damn… My Rating: 4.3

06. This Shit Right Chere
>>> A nice interlude wit shout outs… LOL, “You don’t like it? Suck unda my nuts;” nice and raw, like Dizzy provides it, lol! My Rating: N/A

07. “N2U” feat. Kangol Slim
>>> A bounce-influenced song, though I’m not diggin’ Kangol singin’ on tha hook… Hearin’ Dizzy on tha 1st verse…; it’s whateva… I mean, great for bouncin’, but that singin’ kinda pushes me away from “diggin’” this… Mugsy on tha 2nd verse, here, encounterin’ a chick…; not bad… Dizzy on tha 3rd verse, with a “pistol”-sized “dick,” lol… This verse sounds real nice ova tha beat; nice flow… My Rating: 3.2

08. “Get High”
LOL, 2009 was tha 1st year I smoked weed. However, I ain’t “get high” ‘til 2013 and last year, it mainly took off, thanx to workin’, connections, my cousins gettin’ older & my friend from NY comin’ back into my life. And, I have to say, it’s all about celebratin’!! >>> Beat intro sounds like a nice sample; I’m definitely anticipatin’ this one! Well, I shouldn’t’ve bragged too much about a sample ‘cause there’s an actual vocal sample on tha hook… Likin’ how y’all say, “We get high,” and tha sample sounds like a lil’ baby openin’ its mouth, lol? I’m weird with my feedback and I luv it… Tha 1st verse’s Mugsy and it sounds nice to hear on this beat; nice and decent… I like tha “hiiiiiiiiiigh” lil’ intense climax at 1:07, a few bars before tha 1st verse ended! Dizzy on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through with a way to “ease tha pain.” Sounds good, even though my highs are usually for my socializing, a great enhancer! LOL @ “Styles P” and his song. They had to make his song, “I get by…by…by…by…” Meanwhile, Tove Lo pulled through for tha pop world, last year, with, “You’re gone and I gotta stay high, all tha time,” lol! We’re much more accepting in this current world, now, lol! My Current Rating: 4.4
EDIT: LOL, only a 4.0 when I reviewed it, back on tha On The Inside Looking Out CD? Ain’t realize I remember this one; I “get high” now, so no wonder why my rating’s higher, lol!

09. What Would I Be Without Y’all
>>> Nice lil’ interlude! Yeah, “what would [y’all] be without [me],” FrankieThaLuckyDog? My Rating: N/A

10. “Yeah Bitch (Remix)” feat. Lil’ Wayne
>>> Nice beat… Weird hearin’ this Wayne voice and it’s weird that his voice changed ova these years… It’s always seemed like nothin’ has changed much ‘cause he neva has taken a year off… Anyway, tha hook’s catchy; “yeah, bitch!!” Dizzy, you did a nice job on tha hook and now, you shinin’ on ‘em on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit them rhymes fa a star… Here comes Wayne on tha 2nd verse… OMG, it reminds me of an ’07 Wayne, with tha voice… Tha punchlines are still nice to hear; can’t complain, here… Tha 3rd verse sounds pretty nice to hear from Dizzy, as well; good shit! Yeah, back when “we gettin’ money” was nice and innocent! I got robbed $555 in 2011 & $400 in 2013, just fa bookin’ and helpin’ bitch-made people from BR’s careers out, smfh! My Current Rating: 4.3
EDIT: Ain’t realize I reviewed this back on tha On The Inside Looking Out CD, back in ’08, on time, lol…

½time: Nice mixtape, so far, goin’ ova pretty well with me! Keep this shit up, guys; y’all consistent! A 4.2-rated CD, currently!

11. “Tear It Down (Remix)” feat. B.G.
Anotha remix, here… >>> Sounds nice wit Gizzle on tha 1st verse, ova this beat… And, forgot to mention: Mugsy sounds nice on tha hook, tearin’ “dis muthafucka down!” Speakin’ of, here he iz on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some nice mixin’, as far as tha dranks! Got mo shit from Gizzle on tha 3rd verse, here, comin’ through wit mo shit; not bad… Oh, and Muggs took tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse, here, reppin’ through this track…; he even “jiggalatin’,” too! Nice! Make sure y’all still on dat level ‘cause I’m just enterin’ dat kinda territory! We have 1:37 left, and do we have anotha verse? Sounds like Mugsy doin’ an outro, or a lil’ chant? Yeah, I’m likin’ this chantin’ of throwin’ “dem sets high!” Almost thought it was gon be a ward call, lol… My Rating: 4.0

12. “It’s Gonna Be Alright”
>>> A sample, here, on tha hook… Not really crazy about these kinda jointz, though I’m diggin’ this different-soundin’, throwback-kinda beat, at tha moment… Here’s Mugsy on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit catchy shit! Gotta keep “doin’ yo jizzo,” ya feel me?! Here’s Mugsy on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through fa tha “Tupac” fans, lol, as they “have [their] headphones on, listenin’ ta Tupac.” And, here’s Mugsy on tha 3rd verse: “To all my OG niggaz who been trappin’ since ’83;” props fa me figurin’ out what year you’re born in, Mugsy. You already know I’m smart wit dem birthdayz! My Rating: 3.9

13. Pussy Blockin’
>>> A skit, here… Yeah, air ‘em out! “PB & J,” and that’s “pussy blockin’,” lol… At tha time when this CD came out, I only dealt with one “pussy.” There was this DJ from Baton Rouge that I did a commercial for, that he wanted. Then, when I made mine, he made his own, and I tried to get paid for mine, but he ain’t pay me. Fuck, glad I learned my lesson, though I’m so behind in old reviewz, now, smh! Err-body betta appreciate what I do, now ‘cause I’m not really available, anymore! My Rating: N/A

14. “The Truth”
>>> Sounds like a catchy hook ova this decent beat; nice job, Dizzy! “I spit that real shit; these otha niggaz just rappin’!” Ain’t that tha truth? Gotta luv when I “spit that real shit” when it comes ta my music, too! Here’s Dizzy on tha 1st verse, comin’ through, findin’ a way ta make himself “smile;” gotta find a way! “Got tha word, ‘Gangsta,’ on my left hand;” nice… Tha 2nd verse from Dizzy’s soundin’ nice, too, and I can agree wit him, here: “I was lookin’ for some bullshit to get into!” Even though it wasn’t trouble-related, “I was” gettin’ myself into “some bullshit,” back then, when I was doin’ niggaz a favor by doin’ commercials fa free! I mean, look at what I fuckin’ did to myself! I should’ve charged dem bitches ‘cause they all was fake and I made myself post-pone my Louisiana Reviewz Marathon due to makin’ so many commercials! I wish I wasn’t like dat, but I learned tha hard way! It’s a neva-endin’ grind!! Here we are wit Dizzy, once again, on tha 3rd verse; almost gettin’ y’all voices confused, fa a second, but I got it… Props fa feedin’ your “family,” Dizzy! My Rating: 4.1

15. “Ignant” feat. Skip
>>> This beat sounds catchier; let’s see what we got goin’ on, here… Tha hook sounds pretty catchy with this title; nice job, Muggs! It sounds like a catchy club banga… Hearin’ him on tha 1st verse and it sounds like he livin’ large; sounds good ta hear… Mo Muggs on tha 2nd verse, here—guess no Dizzy, now, lol? Y’all alternatin’!—and it sounds good, still… Yeah! Skip on tha 3rd verse, here, and his “two words” are, “Fuck off!!” Yeah!! Sounds nice with his aggression in his voice, on this verse! Nice appearance; sounds nice on this beat! My Rating: 4.2

16. Ain’t No Love
>>> Nice skit, but yeah, I wish I “ain’t [have] no love,” back in ’09! I was dick-suckin’ too many rappers’ dicks and shit, back then! Wish I would’ve been more self-centered like they dumb asses! My Rating: N/A

17. “Killa” feat. Teco
>>> A nice beat start, here; diggin’ tha laidback vibe in tha instruments… Tha hook sounds pretty catchy wit tha singin’, this time, unlike tha Kangol one; nice job, Teco! Here we go wit Dizzy on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some nice shit ta spit ova this beat; nice rhymes… Here’s Mugsy on tha 2nd verse, and he sounds nice on this shit, wit his choppaz! Even a singin’ 3rd verse from Teco, here, rap-sung… Verse? Maybe, I’ll consider it a bridge, since it was pretty quick? And, a lil’ endin’ from Teco, too, singin’ tha way through… My Rating: 4.3

18. “Like A Muhphukka”
Luvin’ tha spelling! >>> Nice beat start from Sinista, here; let’s see how this gon turn out… Anthemic wit tha beat, now that I hear tha hook from Dizzy! Yeah, “like a muhphukka!!” Luv daht spelling, 1ce agayne!! Tha 1st verse from Dizzy’s nice, too; nice and quick, here! Here Dizzy continues dat hot shit on tha 2nd verse… Diggin’ tha rhymes, once again, Diz, you Raw D.I., lol! Mo shit from Dizzy on tha 3rd verse, here, and since it’s all him, this title’s remindin’ me that I’ve heard this before? Actually, no, but I see other songs on here I’ve heard before, lol! My Rating: 4.6

19. Skrate Up On The Get Down
>>> Nice lil’ outro, here; props fa takin’ me down this Luv 4 Da Streets journey, lol… My Rating: N/A

20. “Pump My Fist” feat. Stevie Drumma
>>> Diggin’ tha hook, here, includin’ how tha beat sounds wit y’all on tha hook, pumpin’ y’all’s “fist!” Tha 1st verse from Mugsy sounds nice ta hear; good shit! “So, nigga, roll da weed up;” yeah! Here’s Dizzy on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some catchy shit… Almost reminds me of Trillville & “Neva Eva” wit, “Look at my neck, look at my wrist,” wit tha way you delivered it! Great flashback and wow, that song was only six years old at tha time of tha release of this mixtape. And now, this mixtape’s six years old, today, lol… Here’s tha both of y’all on tha 3rd verse, alternatin’ back and forth like catchy muhphukkaz, lol!! “Stevie Drumma,” huh? Oh, makes sense; I believe he’s on tha hook, uncredited! Yeah, that voice reminds me of “Sit Still,” so yeah! Those were great times! My Rating: 4.4

Overall: Nice mixtape, y’all! Y’all kept it consistent wit some hot, quality-soundin’ street shit fa tha 504! Keep up tha great work, y’all! And, Dizzy, I got anotha flashback review ta do fa you in a few! It from 2013; not as old as this one, ya dig?
