Review #1,432: KarlWayne "2 Years Later"

Reviewed on 1.31.2015 (Review #1,432)

Got one more review b4 this month ends… I have to say, with tha reviewz I’ve been doin’ lately, there hasn’t been that many. Not only do I work a full-time job, but at tha same time, nobody fucks wit me, anymore. I mean, I’m super busy, but for those that say they fuck wit me, and I don’t get their music, it’s like, really? To me, that’s not defining true value of your product and you definitely don’t value me, whatsoever! So, lemme take it to an artist that values me. He sent me his CD on Facebook as soon as it came out, like a real artist from Louisiana should! I first heard him back on April 28, 2009, on fellow Gardererz, Yung Yola & D.$.G.’s 99 Wayz 2 Grind CD, back when he was known as K.O.. He was locked up at tha time and I would communicate with him while he was in jail. I used to manage his MySpace page, back when that was poppin’… Sponsored by Street Certified Muzic, here goes my review for KarlWayne 2 Years Later, and yes, it’s two years after he got outta jail, already! Oh, and, what’s tha “591799” on tha back cover? Start Time: 7:38 PM | End Time: 9:00 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 #1,432) reviewed on 1.31.2015 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. Intro
Let’s see how we gon start this thang off… >>> Straight out tha jail cells… Live broadcast from tha pen? Quiet and anticipating! Tha clashing of tha cell doors remind me of tha Kings Park Psychiatric Center I visit on Long Island, NY, where you mysteriously hear tha doors clash! Yes, it’s haunted by ghosts! I have yet to get audio and witness a scream there, lol! My Rating: N/A

02. “How That Go”
Wonder what this gon be like, produced by Ruffin? >>> Hearin’ tha beginning beat sound and it’s soundin’ like those dayz when I used to always listen to Louisiana rap, lol… Beat’s definitely pure and on a Baton Rouge level; gotta feel it! Also, you’re doin’ a nice job wit tha hook; fuckin’ catchy, especially wit tha title repeatin’! Oh, seems like years ago when I was crazy about Baton Rouge and all dat, lol! Here you are on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice; I like how you say, “KarlWayne,” on tha adlib, twice! Gangsta shit, here; glad you got this quality and you know I had ta take tha time out ta review it, despite workin’ today and tomorrow, 4 – 11 AM! Here’s tha 2nd verse and you still bringin’ dat gangsta shit to tha table; nice! Diggin’ your aggressive attitude, here, as well; keep it goin’! Ooh @ tha beat stoppin’ @ 2:24 and you slaughterin’ tha beat; nice! My Rating: 4.8

03. “Rap Sheet”
Likin’ these titles, already! This one’s produced by TTyme; stylized like dat? Neva heard of ‘em… >>> Oh, so that’s your “DOC number;” I see… Beat sounds pretty nice; anotha pure-soundin’ track, once again! And, tha hook’s pretty nice, as well; thumbs up fa comin’ through wit an analysis of your “rap sheet!” Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I gotta dig how you cuttin’ ‘em, if they cross ya! Hope ya do dat fa me if I need a favor, ya dig? Consistent shit fa Baton Rouge; diggin’ dat sound you bringin’ to tha streetz of Gardere Lane! Tha 2nd verse sounds nice, too, strictly slaughterin’ ‘em wit dat gangsta shit, once again! My Rating: 4.5

04. “My Own” feat. Kam
A newbie with them producin’ tha track as well! I’m sure it bangz!! >>> Luv how your intros take a few seconds of quietness and then, they slam wit dat pureness! Hearin’ tha beat intro and it’s nice and quiet, here, wit a spooky, Baton Rouge-soundin’ start! Sounds like it’s tha ‘90s, undaground, Louisiana rap, here, wit this beat intro… Afta :49, we have tha hook: Kam iz a singer, here, and it’s soundin’ nice; I can dig it… Like I said, I feel like it’s tha ‘90s with Skull Duggrey or somethin’, wit how this sounds…! Now, here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some nice rhymes, tryna get outta dat jail cell; I feel ya! Tha 2nd verse sounds good; I’m diggin’ what you’re spittin’, here… Just try not ta get caught up too much in sendin’ R.I.P. shout outs, though; gotta keep it movin’… No 3rd verse, here; just a nice, long outro with Kam randomly singin’ notes and tha beat jammin’ nicely… My Rating: 4.4

05. “I Got It” feat. Menace & Gage
Neva heard of these dudes, luckily… Iz that you on tha production (listed as K.O., your former stage name)? Whateva this iz, I’m definitely anticipatin’ all tha unknown, though 5:30 on tha length? Can you pull through? >>> Definitely likin’ tha beat, here; catchy keys! Nice gangsta shit on tha hook, as you have “this tooley;” nice! Definitely diggin’ tha 2nd ½ of tha hook when you repeat tha title, with this beat pumpin’ in ya veins! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice; diggin’ you and your consistent gangsta shit, as always! Hearin’ tha Menace dude on tha 2nd verse and it sounds like dat great shit from Baton Rouge/G-Lane dat I would luv, on a first listen! Nice shit; gotta luv tha hood of BR at all times! I don’t care who you iz; I got luv fa ya! Wit dat bein’ said, dat Menace dude go hard! Hope he goes far and hope we connect in tha future, on a serious note! Like, business-wise! Here comes Gage on tha 3rd verse, with a perfect way ta start tha verse off wit dis gun shit! His name says it all, so he here ta stay in tha hood! Nice reppin’ fa dem “treyz!” Catchy voice fa dis gangsta and I’m diggin’ how he has hunger and aggression in his voice; go, Gage! I do have ta say, fa 5:30 on tha length, this was nowhere near boring!! Y’all definitely held it down!! My Rating: 4.6

06. “EDDU” feat. J-Bae Bay-Bae
Not sure if I stylized his name right, but on DatPiff, this iz accidentally #7; I’m goin’ wit tha back cover for everything… “Jay Bae Bay” iz how he’s stylized on tha filename, but I’m goin’ wit tha back cover… Anyway, should be real nice wit Ruffin on tha beat! Think this tha 1st official song I’ve heard wit “EDDU” in tha title? Definitely lookin’ forward but before I get into it, lol, I can just imagine tha people up here, if they hear me say dat; they’d be so shocked, lol! I’m a Shift Leader and a Music Leader; they won’t catch on for years! I mean, we’re already years into EDDU, too! >>> I like tha lil’ talkin’ in tha beginning wit your Baton Rouge-born voice and shit; nice… Tha beat’s definitely pure, once again! LOL, what a hook; gotta feel it! Thought it was more of a threat, but it’s more of a sexual thang, here! Gotta luv how you repeat tha 2nd ½ of tha hook wit tha title; gotta keep goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’ and goin’, lol!! Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some nice shit, just engagin’ in dem X-rated activities! Sounds nice on this beat; I’ll keep followin’ you! You don’t need 100,000 followers; you’re fine tha way you are, right now, as far as your status! Hearin’ this Jay dude on tha 2nd verse and he sounds good; catchy voice and yeah, he said it: “JayDae Baby!” LOL, tha 3rd hook ain’t do tha repeatin’, but had Jay go, “Eat up…! Eat up…!” ROFL @ you at tha end, in your regular, calm voice: “Aight… Aight…” My Rating: 4.4

07. “Ain’t Coming Down” feat. Vicboi
B-Mayne (dash or no dash?) on tha beat, here, with a nice-lookin’ collab ta anticipate! >>> Definitely purer than pure wit tha beat start, here; gotta anticipate it!! Gotta luv how there’s Baton Rouge injected in tha beat at all times!! It’s like a heavy dose!! Wit dat bein’ said, we have a nice hook from Karl, here; sounds catchy! Vicboi on tha 1st verse and he’s doin’ a nice job wit tha rappin’, here; just luv dat southern style in his voice! Here you are on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit dat shit we gotta hear! Glad you always keep it G, and I must admit, seven songs in, and I’m so glad you’re not braggin’ about money or any of dat bullshit! So glad fa dat!! No wonder why I’m enjoyin’ this review so much!! Ooh @ 2:35; luv how tha beat just stopped fa a sec. and you continued on! My Rating: 4.4

08. “Iron” feat. Needy Nee
Accidentally #11 on tha DatPiff tracklisting… Anyway, Ruffin doin’ tha beat, this time, and I’m anticipatin’ this one! Prolly a G-Lane G song wit tha beat slammin’ in ya in an addictive way!! >>> Dat Baton Rouge quality in tha beat dat I luv; nice job, once again, Ruffin!! Future producer; just don’t sell out!! Ooh, much catchier than I thought this was gon be!! Just luv when you repeat tha title on tha 2nd ½ of tha hook; that’s tha key fa a catchy-ass Baton Rouge song!! Fuck, your CD jammin’ soooooooooo hard!!! And, we got Needy on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some gutta shit fa this G-Lane! Now, she’s entered her 30’s, keepin’ it goin’! Can’t believe she was only 24 when I first heard her; where’d tha time go? Here you are on tha 2nd verse and you got this G-shit goin’ on, non-stop! Great job wit tha verse, but that fuckin’ hook’s soooooooooooooooo addiiiiiiiiiictiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!!! Just luv dat 2nd ½ of it!!! My Rating: 4.9

½time: Whoo, this CD’s too jammin’!!! Just really luv how you bring your A-game at all times, here!! Tha production iz so on an A+ level; A++!!! Almost all of your features I’ve neva heard before, and all dem dudes go hard!!! And, most importantly, you got some tight-ass verses, as well as some addictive, catchy-ass hooks!!! Keep it up, bruh! You’re at a hot 4.6 for tha CD rating, currently; pure rating!!!

09. “So Dumb” feat. Vicboi & Needy Nee
Again, it says that K.O. produced tha track… Either way, I’m anticipatin’ this collab, as well! >>> Sounds like a Baton Rouge hood anthem; gotta rep fa dem hoodz! Might’ve remembered this from a sample you might’ve given me, at times, last year; nice shit! Tha hook’s catchy wit this beat; gotta luv how you holdin’ G-Lane down to tha fullest! This gotta be tha hottest CD of 2015; props fa startin’ tha year off real nice!!! Here you are on tha 1st verse and you’re comin’ through wit some catchy shit; you’re real sick wit it, makin’ me nod my head non-stop! Keepin’ this shit goin’ wit Vicboi on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some catchy shit! Dat voice definitely holds tha hoods of Gardere down!! “I really do my shit;” always! And yea, “Ain’t no pussy in dat click,” when it comes to dat Lane! I mean, there’s only two that are pussy ta me. One’s all stuck-up, stubborn and afraid of BPMs, while there’s anotha one who randomly deleted me and unfollowed me from Facebook, Twitter & Instagram all ‘cause I sent them their awards. It’s like, really? Can’t get any mo “pussy” than dat!! Back to tha positive, here: Needy on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through, consistently rippin’ up tha track on this beat!! Wow, neva stoppin’ anytime soon!! Wow, she just keeps goin’ and goin’ and goin’!! That was definitely a nice and consistent verse!!! My Current Rating: 4.7
EDIT: Forgot I reviewed this on tha I Love My Hood mixtape…

10. “Ride Or Die”
I have ta say, my back’s killin’ me while I’m doin’ this review. However, tha music’s too tight to where I continue without stoppin’! This next one’s produced by C Nile; can’t wait ta hear it!! >>> A fade-in intro? Awkward, but tha beat sounds pretty nice, and it’s only 2:32 on tha length… Likin’ tha beat, here; only one verse this gon be? Catchy hook; gotta hold onta KarlWayne, ya dig? Hearin’ tha verse and it sounds nice; great-soundin’ song fa somethin’ a lil’ slower… My Rating: 4.2

11. “Up There”
I know I reviewed this one last year, on that one compilation disc you were featured on. I remember this bein’ so catchy… What I had said, previously: Nice beat from Nunu James, and here’s Karl on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit a crew! Feels great ta hear this and now that I’m actively hangin’ out, I can feel tha whole crew-like rhymes of havin’ multiple people witchu! Tha hook ain’t “bullshit;” it just sounds catchy, and a lot catchier wit tha “fuck that, get it up there” shit that repeats!! Great “shit!” Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty nice, too! Nice reppin’, my boy! My Current Rating: 4.6

12. “Some More” feat. Ryco Hu$$le & Big June
K.O. production. And, to go with what I said before, make it 3: Not really likin’ that Ryco ain’t “wanna be a part of hearin’ why B-Real ruined my Louisiana passion.” It’s like, you can’t be afraid! That’s why, I’m a Shift Leader! And, I take risks, not hide away! Anyway, lemme see what we got, here… >>> Really likin’ tha beat start, here; nice hook from you, too, K.O., lol! Diggin’ how you on a mission fa “mo!” Tha 1st verse sounds pretty nice, here; props fa holdin’ tha hood down, as always! Hearin’ tha 2nd from Ryco… it’s acceptable, except these stupid-ass “money” obsessions; that don’t go wit this CD! It’s not like I’m gettin’ any or any music, anyway, so I could give a fuck less! Only 24 seconds left and there’s a 3rd verse: Big June (an “E” missing on tha back cover?)… He sounds nice on this shit; great shit fa only 24 seconds! My Rating: 4.2

13. “Ask About Me” feat. BluBlack
Previously reviewed… A Q-Red-produced track, here. Though I still resist leaving feedback (like, it’s more normal for an actual penis to randomly appear), I think this sounds good, as always. Nice job wit you on tha hook; hook almost sounds a lil’ like some older tracks from others, but you gotta feel it! Here you are on tha 1st verse, too, comin’ through, spittin’ in a great, post-jail kinda way! Lots of “eat dat dick up” shit ‘round 1:19; gotta threaten ‘em wit your “dick.” Got Blu on tha 2nd verse, and he sounds real great, as always! Really diggin’ that he always still smokes, as well as feelin’ like tha coolest dude in dat Lane! My Current Rating: 4.4

14. “Bodied” feat. G-Lane Steve
A Hammer-produced track, here; don’t think I’ve eva heard of him… Also, this should be a nice collab wit tha Stevenson on tha feature, lol… >>> Definitely diggin’ tha slow, creepy-soundin’ beat intro!! It got louder once tha hook came in, and this sounds nice! Diggin’ tha hook, as you hold it down to tha fullest! Gotta luv how G-Lane Steve starts tha 1st verse off wit dem “chewies” and shit like dat! Good shit, tha whole way ‘round… Here you are on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some nice shit, as always! Gotta luv how you holdin’ it down fa tha gangstaz at all times! And, this beat definitely goes great with it! What tha hell? What happened? There’s 24 seconds of silence at tha end; why, lol? My Rating: 4.3

15. “Bitch Do” feat. J-Bae Bay-Bae
Back to this anticipatin’ feature and Ruffin on tha beat; whoot, whoot!! >>> Beat sounds catchy; it sounds less-energetic than other tracks he’s produced but it’s still nice. Tha hook sounds catchy wit this title and all this shit repeatin’; “ride dat dick,” lol… Nice job wit tha hook and 1st verse, so far, Mr. JayDae… He holdin’ it down witchu, creatin’ some catchiness… And, here you are on tha 2nd verse, wit your “Tolerance on zero;” gotta feel it! LOL @ strokin’ tha “pistol;” you know! Damn, 12 seconds of silence at tha end… My Rating: 4.3

16. “Fucked Up” feat. Needy Nee
Ooh, tha “Up There” producer on this (Nunu James); can’t wait ta hear this one, too! >>> Beat sounds pretty nice; great sound, once again! LOL, I tried to guess tha hook and say, “You got me fucked up;” I was close, lol! It’s, “Bitch, you got me all tha way, all tha way, all tha way fucked up!” Nice job wit tha hook and you holdin’ down tha 1st verse, as well; good shit! Now, we got Needy on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit great shit, once again! It’s all about lettin’ out tha inner-gangsta in ya! LOL, she sure shoved in tha final bar of her verse, lol! My Rating: 4.2

17. “Out My Top” feat. Bizzak Man & C4
Endin’ it wit a K.O. production… C-4 (with a dash) iz a group consisting of Piper, Ryco Hu$$le & Trouble T. However, just got a friend request from this C4 (without tha dash), also from BR! Regardless of anything, I’m anticipated ta hear this four-minute track wit Bizzak on tha feature! >>> Whoa @ tha beginning beat; kinda shocked me outta nowhere wit its distortion! Holy, distortion; luv it!! Wait, it’s really, actually fucked up!! Even when I try and listen to it on DatPiff, tha audio’s all fucked…! Wow, what happened to tha file? At least I can hear it… As far as tha hook, it’s pretty nice how y’all “out [y’all] top!” Iz dat Bizzak on tha hook? That gon be my guess? Here you are on tha 1st verse and it sounds great wit all tha “bruh” parts; nice! You did a nice job deliverin’ tha 1st verse! If I had ta guess tha 2nd verse, it’s Bizzak? LOL, it’s so distorted… I’m diggin’ this gangsta perspective on tha 2nd verse, though… Tha 3rd verse sounds okay, as well, here… My Rating: 4.3

Overall: Well, I have to say, this was a really-impressive CD, Mr. KarlWayne!! You’ve neva been soft or even average; every song I’ve heard from you’s had, mainly, original production, as well as it bein’ a hot banga!! You’ve neva disappointed me and this whole entire CD definitely went hard!! Tha 1st ½ struck me more, but you kept tha consistency goin’, as well as keepin’ me awake! Props fa doin’ dat!! Good job wit most of tha features and 95% of tha producers!! Keep up tha great work, my boy!!
