Review #1,459: Foxx "Jail Made Me Worse"

Reviewed on 4.10.2015 (Review #1,459)

Comin’ up next iz a more-recent CD review, here: Foxx Jail Made Me Worse, sponsored by Milliyone Musik. However, it has tha logo for Trill Entertainment on tha cover; both labels? EDIT: Oh, look who fuckin’ made tha cover! They must still think he with Trill? Anotha fail!! Can’t wait ta hear this, though! Got a lotta luv fa Foxx-A-Mill!! Start Time: 6:43 PM | End Time: 7:34 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 #1,459) reviewed on 4.10.2015 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Jail Made Me Worse”
I tried writin’ you last year; I remember… >>> Lil’ 627 beat; you still fuck wit him? Thought he was done for, a while ago? Dude don’t even like awards, smh! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice ta hear; consistent rhymin’, here… Just forgot that this was just an intro track and only one verse; nice, either way… My Rating: 4.0

02. “Unnecessary Money” feat. Mouse
Great that Mouse’s featured and prolly produced this track, but I’m really not into tha title… >>> Nice beat start from Mouse, here!! Ooh, definitely diggin’ this for a start! Will it be a guilty pleasure??? Nice job wit tha 1st verse, Foxx! And, will I be gettin’ some of this “money” from you, sooner or later? Hope so! You should pay me back tha $400 B-Real owes me, still, two years later, smh! Talk about not gettin’ “money,” in that situation, you know! Tha 2nd verse sounds consistent and nice ta hear, too; keep spittin’ all these club-type rhymes! My Rating: 4.7

03. “Don’t I” feat. Wacko
>>> Nice beat; good job on tha 1st verse and tha hook, Foxx… Hearin’ Wacko on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice and UTPtastic, here… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it sounds consistent wit how you keepin’ tha title comin’ along… My Rating: 4.2

04. “Everybody Ain’t Loyal” feat. $hizz
Ironic title and feature? >>> Nice beat for tha BR streetz; nice hook, too, explainin’ tha unloyal shit that be goin’ on. Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I can see what you sayin’, Foxx; I’ve dealt wit so much of it, lately! It’s like, this iz why I don’t fuck wit Louisiana, anymore. “Ain’t” nobody value me and shit like dat… Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse and it sounds pretty good, too. It’s pretty fucked up how “everybody ain’t loyal” and shit. If only Louisiana artists would value what I be doin’, then, I’d be good. Hearin’ you on tha 3rd verse and it sounds great, as far as how you can go from dealin’ wit tha unloyal to gettin’ away from all tha bullshit. And, I ain’t realize that was $hizz on tha hook; completely fooled me! My Rating: 4.3

05. “Help”
>>> Nice beat start, strictly from tha 225… Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds nice ta hear; great sound! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I’m definitely feelin’ tha aggression in your voice! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and damn, you goin’ through some breakup! Y’all and these relationships, lol! So stressful? Glad I ain’t have one, yet! However, I have borderline ones—I treat girls like they my girlfriend! My Rating: 4.3

06. “Fuck Wit Me” feat. Jagged Edge
Let’s see how this feature gon go; you think it gon go mainstream? Ehh…, umm…, uh… >>> Seems like tha early 2000s with JE on tha hook; lol @ their explicitness… Sounds like a good hook and a dry beat, here… Speakin’ of dry, here’s you on tha 1st verse, completely opposite of dry; great aggression, once again! Tha beat started addin’ sounds on tha 2nd hook; feelin’ it more… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too; I think tha Mouse feature’s more of a single than this… Either way, it still sounds nice. And, tha 3rd verse’s good, too; diggin’ tha eight-bar verses instead of this bein’ a full 16! Nice beat ending, here, too… My Rating: 4.4

07. “Real Nigga”
Ain’t you have a song wit this title already, back in ’12? >>> Thought it was gon be a lil’ alternative rap sound, based off tha first few seconds… However, it’s soundin’ B-Real-y on tha beat, here; nice sound, includin’ tha hook! Tha 1st verse’s soundin’ nice, here; feelin’ how you comin’ through fa these hoes, once again! Tha hook almost sounds like a feature, though I think you’re singin’ on it, like tha previous “Real Nigga” song you put out… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice, again… My Rating: 4.2

½time: A pretty consistent CD, so far; definitely diggin’ it! Lots of great production and tha features definitely kept it goin’! A 4.3-rated CD, so far; let’s keep it goin’!!

08. “Makin’ My Rounds” feat. J Bless
Neva heard of tha feature; bet they a singer on tha hook, based off their name… >>> Wow @ this pure, semi-spooky beat start!!! I’m luvin’ it!! And, that pure Baton Rouge sound to mix in with it! Gotta luv havin’ my girl on tha screen while hearin’ this beat, ya dig?! Nice shit on tha 1st verse, Foxx; you got tha aggressive rhymes and tha hunger in your voice continuously comin’!! Hearin’ tha hook and I was right about it bein’ a singer. Not tha best voice and even with “money” lyrics, but still a great vibe, here. Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice; that rough life you go through! “It’s gon be a long winter;” felt like it breezed by with work, but yeah, can’t stand snow! Glad it’s finally stayin’ above 35, these dayz, durin’ tha night! My Rating: 4.5

09. “Freak Hoe” feat. Wankaego
>>> A Lil’ Ken a.k.a. $hop With Ken beat! Definitely anticipatin’ it, but not this voice in tha beginning! I let tha previous song slide but I dunno if I’ll be able to handle this one… Hearin’ tha hook and yeah, a lil’ weird with tha voice, but luckily, I can get past it… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice from you, Foxx. LOL @ “December 5;” that night, during tha AM hours of “December” 4th, started a movement: My late-night, trippy drives! Luv goin’ down trippy, scary, dark roads while high, ridin’ in tha passenger seat, on Long Island!! Might do it tonight if my girl answers! Didn’t expect tha feature to be a rapper or a female, here, on tha 2nd verse. Almost thought it was tha hook’s person, but that’s you, Foxx. As far as this verse, it’s definitely what’s up; very consistent wit all tha rhymes! Lots ta squeeze in here! Really diggin’ how she raps ova tha beat, especially during tha final bars of tha 2nd verse!! My Rating: 4.3

10. “Your Turn” feat. Shell
Yes for Shell bein’ on tha feature, but I hope he took notes from me and got rid of that gay-ass auto-tune shit from his most-recent CD, last year!! >>> Sounds like a soft start with tha beat, but almost like a ‘90s G-Funk twist to it… Kinda sounds like you yearnin’ on tha hook, here, but I’m still feelin’ it! That’s three for three with tha singin’ hooks that I’ve been able to handle! Nice job, Foxx!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice; diggin’ this vibe a whole lot! Here comes Shell on tha 2nd verse and thank God, he dropped tha gay-do-tune! Catchy rhymes; feelin’ what he bringin’ to tha table for these females… Tha 3rd verse’s soundin’ nice from you, Foxx; good shit! Just realized Shell’s birthday was March 23, once again. I seem to just sometimes pass up birthdayz while I’m on Long Island, NY; they be feelin’ like vacations while I’m gone! But, at least I enjoyed his birthday! My Rating: 4.4

11. “Stay Alive”
>>> Tha same producer from tha previous song, though I can’t decipher their beat tag… Hearin’ tha hook and there’s singin’ on tha hook. Hmm, couldn’t quite get four for four, Foxx; this only aight fa me… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds like it could be an ending song instead of in tha middle of a CD… Real rhymes, though only okay on a CD like this… Odd that tha singer’s not credited, on tha hook, too… Tha 2nd verse from you’s not bad, as well. Prolly could’ve had this as only two verses instead of four minutes; I gon get bored, now… Anotha verse from you, on tha 3rd verse… Pretty fucked up with this story you explainin’; sucks to lose someone… It’s rough that my girl’s brother committed suicide at 19 years-old; can’t imagine… My Rating: 3.5

12. “Semi-Ratchet” feat. Wankaego
Likin’ tha “semi” on tha title; reminds me of what I say at work: “Semi-decaffeinated.” >>> A hot beat start, here! Ooh @ tha hook; diggin’ what you got goin’ on by repeatin’ this title ova this addictive-soundin’, club/street beat!! Nice hook; gotta luv tha borderline vibes of tha “semi” life!! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice; regular rhymes fa these lay-dayz, lol! And, we got Wankaego on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit a slower flow… However, she’s got shit goin’ on, once again; feelin’ tha verse… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse from you and it sounds nice ta hear; good shit! My Rating: 4.2

13. “Wish”
… >>> More Kendaletastic beats from dat boy, Lil’ Ken! See, a lil’ more life in this kinda song, already, since it has Ken on tha beat, vs. tha “Stay Alive” beat! I’m diggin’ how you comin’ through wit tha wishes, on tha hook, here! At tha moment, “If I could make a wish,” I would hope DJ B-Real & I reconnect! He need to unblock me from Facebook, Twitter & Instagram, especially since record labels, magazines & publications are behind me! It’s like, why he missin’ out on so much shit? He really trippin’ baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!!!!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and it sounds nice ta hear; better voice on this track than on “Stay Alive”. I’m not really a fan of focusin’ on fallen souljaz, though. Like, my boy from Connecticut posted a text pic tha other day on Instagram and it said, “Support living artists! The dead ones don’t need it;” sooooooooooooooooooo agree! Err-body gotta quit dickriding, already!!! And, that’s real! Nothin’ realer!! Nice job wit tha rest of this, Foxx; feelin’ it! My Rating: 3.9

14. “That Fire” feat. Shell
Let’s see which Shell feature’s better… >>> Really feelin’ tha fast-soundin’ Louisiana beat start!! You say, “A smoke anthem,” Foxx? I’m lookin’ forward! Oh, I can see why this sounds faster: “Smokin’ dat fire,” like some of dat old, ‘90s, bounce Louisiana shit it’s samplin’! I believe, Ms. Tee? Oh wait, I believe it’s Lady Red. Lookin’ through my old Louisiana CDs right now… Either way, nice vibe, fa’real!! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice; you goin’ off ta this jam! Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice, too! Good shit; keep tha consistency comin’, Foxx! And, yes, we got Shell on tha 3rd verse; still luv his, “La-look, la-look,” pre-intro shit to his verses! Feelin’ how he keep “smokin’;” dat me all tha way, now! Once I hook up wit someone and hang out, you already know what we doin’!! Glad it finally came to life!! Nice, consistent, smoketacular rhymes, Shell!! Just luv tha classic New Orleans sound, here! My Rating: 4.4

15. “Get Off” feat. Shell & Lil’ Trill
Anotha familiar title, despite it bein’ Phat’s ’08 title…? >>> One of those anthemic-soundin’ beats, here, fa tha south; good shit! Ooh, nice hook, Foxx; luv tha consistent vibe in tha beat!! That title, hook & beat slamzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!! Luv how you say tha title in a New York accent, too! Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and it sounds nice; good shit! Damn, that was a short verse, but I guess it just adds to tha appetite of more spins! Here we go wit Shell on tha 2nd verse! LOL, what’s wit tha ID? Lil’ Trill before Shell? Naw, not here! Hearin’ it and it sounds nice; glad he keepin’ tha consistent street vibe comin’ along, as well as this great sound! LOL, such a short verse!! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse from Lil’ Trill & it’s soundin’ nice, here; consistent rhymin’ at its finest… Oh, just luv that it’s such a short verse, too, lol!! My Rating: 4.5

Overall: Really dug this CD a whole lot, Foxx! You definitely keepin’ tha consistency goin’!! Definitely luved most of tha features and production, ya dig? Almost a five-star-rated CD, if it wasn’t for that one song. Also, “Wish” came close to a 4.0, as well, but you know how dat go! Hope tha next time, you send me tha CD when it comes out so I don’t have to wonder about releases! I mean, if y’all want my number and wanna follow me and shit, y’all should follow me!
