Review #1,460: Boosie Badazz "Life After Deathrow"

Reviewed on 4.10.2015 (Review #1,460)

Since I ain’t hear back from my girl, I figured I’d do anotha review: Boosie Badazz Life After Deathrow, sponsored by Trill Entertainment. I luv how some random person tweeted me when this CD came out, back around October 30, 2014, and was like, “Review this CD.” First off, I had work six dayz a week and was pullin’ overtime like there was no tomorrow. I’m still hella behind in shit, but because I’m ready to back up my mp3 files of tha last 11 months (4.36 GB on a data DVD disc), I needed somethin’ to fill it; this gon fill it. But yeah, it’s not like Boosie talks to me or keeps up with me, so there would be no way to make this CD a priority. Plus, he not an underground artist; mainstream shit ain’t my priority. Let alone, DJ B-Real produced that “Crazy” song. Unless B-Real was to unblock me and reconnect wit me, then, maybe I’d review this on time. For now, just deal with this… Start Time: 8:20 PM | End Time: 9:26 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 #1,460) reviewed on 4.10.2015 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Murder Was The Case (Intro)”
>>> Diggin’ this pure-soundin’ Baton Rouge beat, though I have a feelin’ it B-Real or somethin’, so I gotta pretend it’s a guilty pleasure! With that bein’ said, I have to say, this sounds nice with tha “Murder Was The Case” sample in tha background of tha hook. And, Boosie, you goin’ off on tha 1st verse, here; diggin’ how you comin’ through wit tha aggressive rhymes and content! Tha hook’s also soundin’ pretty catchy wit tha “murder, murder, murder; kill, kill, kill” shit; nice! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice, too! Good shit; feelin’ tha dark vibe, here! My Rating: 4.6

02. “I’m Comin’ Home”
>>> Kinda awkward wit tha “my girl” shit in tha beginning, but this beat sounds nice. Tha hook sounds kinda dry, compared to tha previous hook, but it still ain’t bad. Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ okay; it’s tha beat that’s keepin’ my interest up, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse right now and it’s soundin’ a lil’ catchier wit how your flow iz. Diggin’ some of those ad-libs, includin’ tha, “Huh bruh!” Tha rest of this shit sounds nice ta hear, too; can’t complain… My Rating: 4.2

03. “Streets On Fire”
>>> Really not feelin’ tha sample in tha beginning, on tha hook. However, this beat’s soundin’ nice, on tha 1st verse; nice shit from you on tha 1st verse, here… Almost sounds like tha beat speeds up around 1:07? Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds pretty good, too; not bad… My Rating: 3.6

04. “I Feel Ya”
>>> Beat ain’t bad, here; an okay 1st verse, so far… Tha hook’s kinda plain, but it ain’t bad, here; just a repeatin’ title… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice, too; gotta hang in there… My Rating: 3.8

05. “No Juice”
Music Choice Rap wound up gettin’ this a few months after this CD was released, back in December. LOL @ Mouse doin’ tha beat and his, “Dat Me,” just comin’ outta nowhere, on MCR. Catchy hook and all that, though I neva played it ‘cause I had “Like A Man” in rotation. My Current Rating: 4.4

06. “Trouble” feat. Lee Banks
>>> Diggin’ tha beat intro, here; has that Baton Rouge sound to it, though I think it gon be anotha guilty pleasure! Matta fact, I’m on B-Real’s Instagram now, and am tryna figure out which “three tracks” he produced on here… *Checks* Fuck! This iz one; kinda hit me instantly, here… Ehh, whateva; nice hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice ta hear… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty interestin’ wit tha “water” and shit like dat. And, Lee Banks on tha 3rd verse? Why no credit to tha feature, but tha mainstream artists get feature credit? SMH @ tha uploader on DatPiff; what a dicksucker!! Weird how I have to give B-Real credit for listin’ tha feature on his Instagram! Either way, he came through nice and aggressively on this track! Great job by all of y’all, combined! My Rating: 4.4

07. “Cruisin’” feat. Yo Gotti
But, this feature gets listed? >>> An EQ Tha Misfit beat; why all these Louisiana producers on this CD? I thought you were past them, especially when I talked to one dude, recently? Tha only thing that sux wit this iz that because of these produced tracks, you’ll prolly neva get these producers to respond to you eva again—well, me, we’ll put it that way! Like, everyone’s all cocky and shit and evasive; completely unprofessional wit business, you know! But either way, this sounds nice and tha hook’s pretty nice; diggin’ tha NWA remake… Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some nice shit; feelin’ what you bringin’ to tha table for tha streetz, here… Hearin’ Gotti on tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ catchy; nice feature, though smh still @ that uploader for not knowin’ Lee Banks was on tha previous song!! Nice job wit tha 3rd verse, too, Boosie, strictly “cruisin’!” My Rating: 4.3

08. “Life That I Dreamed Of”
I have to say, I’m kinda livin’ tha “life that I dreamed of,” a lil’ bit! Like, I have independence now, smokin’, travelin’, hangin’ out, friends, etc.! Only thing that I’m still strugglin’ with iz value in tha music business! Like, I may be a Boosie at my job, but I still feel like a nobody in tha music business! When I say what I just said, it’s like, at my job, everyone values me and fiends for me, like Boosie. But, in tha music business, barely anybody keeps up with me or knows what I’m goin’ through. That’s okay ‘cause when these record labels and publications drop these articles on me, this month, they gon realize! At least three people recognize me, now!! >>> Tha beat sounds nice, here, includin’ how you celebratin’ success wit tha hook. Feelin’ tha dreams you achieved, on tha 1st verse; real happy I achieved ‘em! Now, my goal’s to reconnect wit B-Real; will it eva happen? It sux ‘cause bein’ blocked and no available phone number’s VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!! But, hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty good, here… Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse and it’s soundin’ nice, once again… My Rating: 4.1

09. Tori Speaks
LOL, speakin’ of my job, here’s somebody from my job (well, their name)! >>> Oh, it’s just your kid wit wishes; pass… My Rating: N/A

½time: A nice, consistent CD from you, so far; nice job! Keep it up! A 4.2-rated CD, currently…

10. “I’m Wit Ya”
>>> Nice beat and nice 1st verse, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s soundin’ nice with this title. It’s like, can’t deny but ta have someone “wit ya;” it’s a great “feelin’!” Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice; crazy with this “gonorrhea” shit and all dat… A 3rd verse, here… Hearin’ it and it’s like a journal vs. somethin’ for tha streetz; nice. My Rating: 4.2

11. “Gone Bad (American Horror Story)” feat. LIV
LIV iz a dance-music singer from 2003 with “Journey Of Love”, a hot song at 135 BPM, released on Ultra Records! However, what’s this? >>> Thought this would be darker and more on tha “Murder Was The Case” tip, as far as tha production. We got some real-life rhymes, here, about someone, though this ain’t my style; too slow for tha start… Also, not diggin’ tha jacked name on tha feature. Either way, they have a good voice, whoeva this iz. Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice for a slow jam. My Rating: 3.2

12. “Facetime” feat. Trey Songz
Don’t think I’m lookin’ forward… >>> An okay song, so far, with a nice-soundin’ beat; almost thought it was “Walk Thru” fa a sec., here… Tha hook from Trey Songz ain’t too bad, though I don’t anticipate his sexist-ass, these dayz… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s aight. It’s really just decent for me, but at least it ain’t long. You’re on tha 2nd verse, here, and it’s aight, once again. When you say, “I’m in New York, gettin’ money;” why no contactin’ me, yet? I’ve been busier than eva, so you might be runnin’ outta time! My Rating: 3.0

13. “Grade A”
>>> Here’s anotha B-Real-produced track, produced with Neil On Da Track, as well. Beat sounds nice and tha intro’s nice from you. Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds catchy, though you sound semi-feminine when you say tha title. Like, it sounds kinda weird, at times. Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s okay; thought it would’ve been a different topic than “bitches.” Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s straight. Hmm, this just decent at its finest. Maybe, I’d give it a “Grade” “B,” since it gon be in tha 3.0s? My Rating: 3.9

14. “Boosie Love”
>>> And, anotha B-Real beat; this one’s a lil’ slower, here… Hearin’ tha hook and tha beat’s soundin’ betta with tha sounds; catchy hook, though really slow… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s kinda draggin’… It’s catchy, but this vibe’s too slow for me. Also, anotha song for tha bitches? Tha rest of this iz just draggin’; yawn… My Rating: 3.7

15. “Here We Go Again”
>>> And, a Q-Red beat. If I can give feedback on a B-Real beat, I might as well give feedback on this nigga, here… What tha hell from :23 - :30 wit tha beat? Kinda like that, but it’s kinda risky wit how it goes in and out… This sounds betta than those last two songs; not too draggin’ and iz catchy, but simple wit tha repeatin’ hook. Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s good… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse right now and it’s pretty nice; those beats slammin’, at times, are pretty serious. Too bad this a guilty pleasure when I’m reviewin’ this. Like, it goes in one ear and out tha other ‘cause I’m basically like, “Fuck this Louisiana shit!” Ain’t realize ‘til now that this joint’s 5:43; surprised it ain’t gettin’ boring, despite tha draggin’ previous song… Hearin’ you on tha 3rd verse, here, and it’s good, as we keepin’ this goin’… My Rating: 4.0

16. “The Fall”
>>> Sounds like a nice, semi-dark-soundin’ beat, here; good start… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice. Hearin’ tha hook and it’s kinda catchy. However, I think I can relate to it. Like, “tha fall” of my Louisiana connection was when I first got robbed, back on November 17, 2011. Like, that one dude claimed he got “money” and all dat, but couldn’t pay me back a penny when I tried bookin’ him. From there, I saw myself lose touch of tha Louisiana rap scene. Not to mention, I’m not valuable in this music business, anyway, so when I die, no one’ll care about me, anyway! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too, despite my weird emotions… Unexpected ending wit tha “IG, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter” shit… My Rating: 4.0

17. “Young Niggas” feat. Shy Glizzy
Anticipatin’ tha feature!! >>> Nice beat and catchy hook from you, Boosie! Nice job wit tha 1st verse, too, Boosie; anticipates me fa Glizzy! And, here he iz on tha 2nd verse; great, great, great, lol! He always puts me in a great mood, even wit this “all we do iz get paid” shit! It’s like, I can get past it! And, here you are on tha 3rd verse, Boosie, startin’ tha verse off wit dem “sticks and stones…;” nice… My Rating: 4.3

18. “O Lord”
>>> Nice beginning, includin’ tha hook; nice beat, too. Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and I’m feelin’ tha rhymes, here, as you go through your real life… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too; can’t complain. And, tha 3rd verse’s soundin’ good, too; plenty of room left for anotha verse? Let’s see… It sounds like an outro to “free” err-body; nice to end this CD. LOL, “Dat Me,” toward tha end; thanx, Mouse! Also, why iz there 20 seconds of silence at tha end? My Rating: 4.1

Overall: I almost thought “Crazy” was gonna make me feel uncomfortable and appear on here, outta nowhere. But, I guess they’re savin’ that for Touchdown 2 Cause Hell? With that bein’ said, I thought this was a nice lil’ CD; most of tha jointz were nice on here. Tha production was pretty nice, though don’t you seem past tha local scene, Boosie?
