Review #1,458: King Arthur "Retawded-ville"

Reviewed on 4.10.2015 (Review #1,458)

Here goes anotha review, brought to you by Macked Out Music: King Arthur Retawded-ville. Nice title, though why released in 2012 and I’m hearin’ it now? Y’all gotta start respectin’ me more and gettin’ me y’all music on time, rather than not thankin’ me for awards and shit! Hell, I even had my radio show still, at tha time (holy, Flashback Friday moment!); could’ve gotten spins! Start Time: 5:10 PM | End Time: 5:42 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!

01. “Do Ya Sumthin’” (Down Bad)
Down Bad’s song; heard this a while ago, since it was on my radio show. It’s a song of theirs from tha last decade. Because it’s old, I neva reviewed it, yet… >>> Almost thought it was “sumthin’” else, at first, but neva mind. Just like I had heard before, it’s nice and hyped up, on tha hook, as well as this nearly-influenced bounce sound! Tha 1st verse sounds nice, here, with tha “pillz;” you know! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty fast; iz this you? Thought this was Down Bad’s members, but I believe it’s all you, since I barely recognize this voice… Definitely diggin’ this fastness!! Supa on tha 3rd—ugh, “Can we start breaks,” like our girl, Ang says, already? Can’t believe we only talked when I didn’t have a car!! How fuckin’ wack!! If I was reviewin’ this back in tha day, I would say feedback like, “Oh, great verse wit how he comes through wit dat Baton Rouge street shit.” However, right now, I’m just like, “Ehh, shouldn’t’ve cut me off; I’ll ignore!” My Rating: 3.9

02. “Money Machine”
Ewe, titles like this were still acceptable, at tha time, despite me gettin’ robbed just two months before this CD came out! >>> Yeah, if this was back when this first came out, I prolly would’ve enjoyed this and been like, “Ooh, catchy title part repeatin’ on tha hook!” I’ll enjoy it at this moment, but it gon go in one ear and out tha other, here; neva did business, yet, as well! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it has a nice club sound; can’t deny it! Tha 2nd verse sounds good ta hear, too; almost sounds like featured people I don’t know of, at times… Because of titles like this, this iz why I’ve fallen off, just so you know. Like, you neva really see me do Louisiana shit, anymore; you gotta be luckily! My Rating: 4.1

03. “Hit Da Floor” feat. Supa & Tank Jones
Let’s “hit” it! >>> Really diggin’ tha beat start a whole lot! LOL, Down Bad & Macked Out Music’s sound seems soooooooooooooo long ago, like when I first started my 2nd college. Ugh, it’s Supa on tha 1st verse; whateva, but let’s pretend I enjoy this… Thinkin’ ‘bout it: Supa was two years ahead of his time of ruinin’ my Louisiana connection by blockin’ me from Facebook on January 2, 2012, two years before DJ B-Real ruined it all for me, by blockin’ me on February 5, 2014. Like, what’s wrong with these people? It’s a business world and I’m bein’ blocked, as well as no numbers to get a hold of anyone? COMPLETELY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse from you, I believe, and it sounds nice. However, I think I lost full passion for this track, already; prolly could’ve just been you… LOL, speakin’ of Flashback Friday, Tank Jones on tha 3rd verse; neva hear him on tracks, ever, these dayz… Sounds nice; great consistency of tha club flow, as always! I feel like I’m 20 again! Those 2008 times! My Rating: 4.2

04. “Bottles & Boppers” feat. Supa
>>> Sounds like a crazy beat start, this time! It’s just like how I felt about tha previous beat, but this one sounds crazier!! Really diggin’ tha hook; lost in a trance wit these sounds! You got it goin’ on wit tha 1st verse, here! BTW, by tha time I finally make my debut in Louisiana, are y’all gon still be into tha “club”? I hope it doesn’t age; I still haven’t been to one, yet! I mean, you’re only 28; don’t feel aged, yet, Mr. Arthur! Catchy 1st verse wit how you repetitively sound with tha “bottles on deck, boppers on deck” shit! And, my anticipation ruined on tha 2nd verse wit Supa, here. I really shouldn’t’ve reviewed this CD, especially since it wasn’t even sent to me. However, I just need files to fill up my data DVD, since I haven’t backed up music files since May 2014. That’s anotha reason why I’m just doin’ reviewz that go in one ear and out tha other! As far as tha verse, it just flows wit tha track, but once again, it could’ve just been you on tha track and I would’ve been happier! Can’t stand listenin’ to people blockin’ me!! Almost sounds like anotha feature on tha 3rd verse? Can’t exactly tell, but it sounds like a cocky dude, spittin’ a cocky verse wit cocky lyrics; bleh… Wow, just barely cracked tha 4.0 mark; could’ve been a 4.4 if it wasn’t fa these features! And, 12 seconds of silence at tha end, too, smh… My Rating: 4.0

05. “Party”
>>> A true jigg sound, here; hope it ain’t ruined by features, for tha 3rd time in a row!! Tha hook sounds pretty nice; can’t complain… Wit this addictive-soundin’ beat proceedin’, we got tha 1st verse, here… You should list your features on tha CD, since I know who’s who… A lil’ bit of Partners-N-Crime “Pump Tha Party”-kinda feel before tha 1st verse ends, here; nice lil’ twist… Tha 2nd verse has a nice Down Bad flow, here, though I’m kinda losin’ full interest, at times… Like, tha previous tracks would’ve been betta like this… Here’s more to tha 2nd verse with anotha dude, here… It sounds okay; can’t complain, though just straight… And, anotha unknown person on tha 3rd verse; decent, once again, but keeps tha vibe on-n-poppin’… Even more on tha—ugh, iz that Supa on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse? Interest steadily slidin’ down! Bet this an old, ’05 song or somethin’ by Down Bad! My Rating: 3.8

½time: Expected this to be way better, but tha weird vibes and unknown features kinda throw me off… Either way, tha beats are really great, at least! And, tha average CD rating’s at an exact 4.0 flat! No roundin’ up, no roundin’ down!

06. “Move Fa Da Money” (Supa feat. Level)
How ‘bout this: Look how I reviewed this, back on January 16, 2011, when it was featured on my 4th mixtape compilation:

What’s wit all these artists wit mysterious CDs on this mixtape? Again, I think Supa has a CD—make that a few CDs—out and they’re never arrivin’ at my door? Anotha catchy, simple song here…

Even at that time, CDs weren’t arrivin’ at my door! I should’ve known I had fallen off at that time, too! Not only that, Supa has, like, tha weirdest times with me! Last time I talked to him was back when I didn’t even drive my car?!? WTF?!? He prolly still treats me like I’m 21 and can’t handle my 27-year-old ass! I reviewed this on January 16, 2011? Well, four exact years later, I was goin’ dumb to a weed cookie! Wow, sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo advanced from our last conversation!! Betta play catch up, Supa!! My Current Rating: 4.2

07. “No One Like Her” (Supa)
>>> Here we go wit tha Supa shit in tha beginnin’… Okay, lets pretend I’m still in 2009 or somethin’… Tha beat sounds nice and tha hook’s kinda catchy wit tha slight singin’… Tha 1st verse’s soundin’ straight; it’s whateva… Tha rest of this sounds random; next… My Rating: 3.7

08. “Rock Wit Me”
>>> Aaliyah “Rock The Beat” sample, here, along wit a lil’ bit of Crime Mob & Lil’ Scrappy “Rock Yo Hips” remake in tha beginning… This sounds just okay, for me; kinda sounds like it’s basin’ itself off of a bunch of samples… My Rating: 2.8

09. “Know Wat I Mean” (Hey Daem)
Wrong form: “Know” (or “Kno”), not “No”. >>> Sounds like I’ve heard this before? Y’all said, “Hey Daem,” was tha feature? Sounds like a catchy hook with a nice-soundin’ beat… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds good. Weird how this only has one verse? Forgot what tha length was, but it’s whateva; nice, either way… LOL, can’t believe how obsessed I used to be with Louisiana rap music; so weird!! I didn’t have friends, back then, lol!! My Rating: 4.0

10. “Fucked Up” (Supa feat. Big Poppa)
>>> Here we go wit tha Supa shit again… Honestly, I thought this was gonna sound pretty nice for tha beat start, to end this shit off… Really? What’s wit this clean edit shit? “Move fa da money, got it tatted on me;” ewe, so obsessed, in my Jenna tone!! Sounds like Big Poppa on tha 2nd verse? ‘Bout time I correctly analyze a feature! Sounds nice, regardless, but tha consistency’s ruined by censored words! My Rating: 3.6

Overall: I had a mixed review with this CD, and I know with this just bein’ released 17 dayz after Supa blocked me, I prolly wouldn’t’ve been that happy back then, as well… Either way, nice beats; that’s all I can say!
