Review #1,461: P.I.R. "Who I Are (Da Mixtape)"

Reviewed on 4.19.2015 & 4.20.2015 (Review #1,461)

What’s good, it’s ya boy, FrankieThaLuckyDog, here. Today, Sunday, April 19, 2015, and I finna do a live CD review, right now: My boy, from Morganza, LA, P.I.R., which stands for Playing It Raw. I finna review dat Who I Are (Da Mixtape), released on Legal Dope Records, right now. First and foremost, I wanna say, R.I.P. to P.I.R.’s mom. Sad that she passed away three dayz ago. And now, it’s only three dayz until your 39th birthday, so I gon hold it down for ya! So again, broadcasting from a secret location in Upstate New York. So now, I finna get this started! Start Time: 4:43 PM (4/19) | End Time: 2:12 PM (4/20)

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 #1,461) reviewed on 4.19.2015 & 4.20.2015 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Filthy South”
Definitely lookin’ forward to this! Dirty, dirty “south,” like I’m gettin’ high at this dirty, dirty building! Here we go! >>> :21 in and this sounds great! Sounds great how you deliver tha 1st verse, you know. LOL, “Like [your] dick’s a toy!” LOL, catchy rhymes, ya dig? “Ain’t no thang, lil’ daddy!” “Swervin’ tha caddy,” too; that’s wassup! I like how you’re doin’ tha hook, right now! Definitely sounds catchy by how you deliver wit your voice! You sound like you’re automatically paranoid, but you know what? Like in a situation right now, no fear, lol! Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty nice! Just how catchy you’re soundin’, that’s why I took it to a live review! This iz tha kinda place where people might “carry heavy heat,” ya dig? Definitely some good shit fa tha streetz on tha 2nd verse! “Eyes red in this bitch,” lol!! “Welcome to that filthy south, welcome to that filthy south,” LMFAO [just luv how you say it]!!! Nice shout out to all these cities and states in that “filthy south!” Ooh, “in that filthy south…Mississippi…!” “Filthy south”—I like how you did that right before tha last two. My Rating: 4.7

02. “Who I Are”
Prolly tha first P.I.R. song I heard. I put it on my radio show back on September 17, 2011! And, you know what, P.I.R., it was great interviewing you. And, it’s one of tha most-classic Louisiana songs in my Louisiana time! “Dre Tree Z on tha track!” He was very dedicated! “I walks through this bitch, I turn to tha script! I gotta get it on so I can turn a lick! I spent a quarter zone to get my hustle on!” I still got it, four years later! Look at this area! This floor’s sketchy! LOL, “like size of dog shit!” Sketchy floor… It’s a very sketchy floor… Great job wit tha 1st verse, of course! You know, I reviewed this back when it was on my 8th mixtape compilation, back in December 2011. And, gotta introduce yourself, just like how I did wit “Who I Am”; you doin’ it wit “Who I Are”! Take a good look at it! I hear somebody… Of course, keepin’ it gangsta wit tha 2nd verse; just, definitely great just how you—your vibe! It’s just so great! Just feelin’ it! “They call me Playing It Raw ‘cause that’s who I are! And, I do ya shit dat niggaz neva saw! P.I.R.!” Yup, 3rd verse: “Refuse to fail!” That’s exactly what we ‘bout!! Somebody’s here! People just randomly appear here! LOL, you and tha drugs wit this 3rd verse, P.I.R.! “Fulla dat angel dust!” And, it seems like you’re most known for this song. It, like, just always associates you, and you were laughin’, lol. And then, you got tha shout outs, here, toward tha end, kinda like a bridge… I thought that was interesting; you just, like, keep goin’… It’s like a whole shout out to tha cities of Louisiana. Smells like shit ova here… Just keep goin’ on and on and on… “Iz who I”—“Iz who I iz, who I”—“Who”—lol—“Iz who I iz, who I are—“Who I are…”—wow, lol [really, it’s “I iz who I iz, I are who I are,” but I was too high to say it right]!! Tongue twister!!! “That’s who I are!” It was in tha top 10 of two of my year-end countdowns, back in 2011 & 2012! It was #9 & #7, only tha 2nd song to do that behind 2003 & 2004 with Mis-Teeq “Scandalous”, so P.I.R., that’s quite an honor! Phone conversations… My Current Rating: 5.0

03. “Dirty Game We Play”
Already featured it on my 9th mixtape, released back in March 2012; here’s what I gotta say: If this [psychiatric center fan light] fell “down,” that’d be crazy [in reference to tha line, “See yaself fallin’ down.”]! Such a catchy hook, just how you…sing it/rap it? You and dat “fiya dust,” LMAO! “‘Bout” quite a bit on tha 1st verse, ya feel me? I’m “‘bout” abandoned psychiatric centers; how “‘bout” dat? Yeah, tha “game” real “dirty!” It’s, like, impossible to get outta it, too! With everything goin’ on, you know, my priorities change; I feel like I been “fallin’ down!” I remember that line: “A nigga run up in yo house, put a gun in yo baby mama mouth;” that’s great! Best line, right there! Crazy! Really got those real-life street rhymes goin’ on; that’s wassup! Yeah, of course, they gon “hate” ya! “Suckin’ ya dick fa a $5 hit!” “Hey!! … Hey!!” Of course, nothin’ realer than that real “dirty” south shit, comin’ from one’s perspective! See, it’s all about deliverin’ from your perspective! Don’t be intimidated by others; don’t! Don’t say, “I’m sorry,” just don’t! Don’t be intimdated! Forever!! My Current Rating: 4.7

04. “Playing That Role” feat. Chainsaw & Gullie Beezy
So, this gon be, prolly, pretty raw, so without further or do, here it goes! >>> We’re doin’ this CD live in this sterilizer! Just coolin’ in this sterilizer! Here you are on tha 1st verse, P.I.R.! Yeah, pretty nice—I just had a fuckin’ tick on me! I was able to survive! It was on my hand… But yeah, definitely fuck those “clown-ass boyz,” like you said! You know, that’s what people get for fuckin’ frontin’! *Sterilizer closes* They got me trapped! Am I ‘bout ta be sterilized in this thing?! Nice job wit that hook…; err-body ‘bout err-thang! Here comes tha 2nd verse… Soundin’ like some fast rappin’! How ya like dat boy comin’ outta dat vault? There’s a lotta rhymin’ goin’ on, here…; that’s wassup! Definitely keep it street! Imagine “bullet shots” goin’ off here! Yeah, they “playing that role!” Sounds like you say, “Rule;” “playing that role!” OMG, it’s not locked, but looka this (it says, “Lock”, on tha sterilizer)! Could it lock?! Here comes tha 3rd verse… “In this bitch,” straight duffy; you know what it iz! Gettin’ it “fa tha low;” you already know! Yup! Reppin’ dat 318, too; shout out ta Simmsport! So, Chainsaw did his thang fast and Gullie…? Gullie Beezy, pretty nice and street, showin’ luv right there to err-body! I’ont care who be hatin’ or if you just disregard tha style! My Rating: 4.5

05. “Nigga Shit Stank”
Definitely a weed song! You already know how we be on dat, so you know this “shit” definitely gon “stank” good!! >>> LOL, it’s all about “dat indo,” baby!! Nice ramblin’ on tha 1st verse, here! LOL, “Amerie in a thong;” that’s wassup! I’m fucked up! When I see heights, I’m fucked up! LOL @ tha hook! Yeah, dem eyes “bleedin’,” all right!! Yo “shit stank,” fasho! Whoo, dem “fiya, fiya trees;” dat’s what it be ‘bout!! Ooh, “chocolate tai trees!!” I wanna smoke whateva you got goin’ on on tha 2nd verse, right there!! What could be down those holes? Hmm…? Gotta think… LOL @ you wit tha “angel dust,” again! LOL, just killed it! It ain’t dat easy! Tryna keep movin’…; that’s what I gon try ta do on tha 2nd verse, still. “Puff, puff, pass!” Huh? Iz that someone’s shit? LOL, sick wit da munchies! Yup, “snatchin’ of tha gar, start all over again!” *Puff, puff, puff, exhale!* “Fiya, fiya trees!!” Once again, great job…! My Rating: 4.7

06. “225” feat. Blade & Chainsaw
LOL @ tha FrankieThaLuckyDog sound effect in tha beginning! Of course, beat by Big Roy’s definitely nice!! And, tha hook, of course’s great ta hear, reppin’ tha “225!” Gotta luv dat gritty, undaground Louisiana shit, right chea, like this dirty emergency sanitary trough! Nice job wit that 1st verse, right chea! And, with that bein’ said, as well, tha 2nd verse was nice ta hear! And, here you are on tha 3rd verse, P.I.R., comin’ through wit dat “angel dust” shit; great street rhymes, once again! My Current Rating: 4.6

½time: Consistent, southern, keepin' it street at all times, from tha 225 to tha 318. Take a look at tha CD rating, right here, currently: 4.7!! And, we gon continue this thang, so I’mma keep goin’!

Intermission: Due to tha crew I was with was bein’ paranoid and not gettin’ tha whole idea of what I was doin’, tha review abruptly stopped at 6:11 PM and continued tha following day, 4.20.2015, at 1:10 PM…

07. “Don’t Wanna Get Nothing Started” feat. Blade
Lemme re-review it again… “…Talkin’ shit, you don’t wanna get nothing started,” lol! That’s right! Y’all wanna engage a fight or what?! Tha beat sounds nice, and like I said, tha hook’s fiya! P.I.R. on tha 1st verse, of course! Yeah, “youse a bitch!” Could we hear sounds in here? Could be ghosts in here, lol! Just luv when reviewin’ your music in psychiatric centers! You even put Blade as a feature, I see, on tha ID [original ID was ID’d as tha artist “Louisiana Repp’n” (P.I.R. & Blade)]… There’s ghosts in here! Yeah, Blade comin’ through like a blade on tha 2nd verse; keep dat gangsta-ass shit comin’ along ‘cause I dig it!! You know, it looks like “225” ova there! Tha “5”! “You sayin’ you retarded? Boy, you just talkin’ shit, you don’t wanna get nothing started! Nigga what? You sayin’ you retarded? Boy, you just talkin’ shit, you don’t wanna get nothing started!” LMAO, what tha fuck? It’s such a dark place, here! Happy 4/20!! My Current Rating: 4.6

08. “Filthy South (Screwed Version)”
Can’t wait to slow it down on dat 4/20, ya feel me? >>> Nice job, P.I.R.! LMFAO, “come here, lil’ boy!!!” LMFAO!! *Laughs so hard ‘cause he’s so high!* LMAO, “lil’ daddy!!” Teddy!! My Rating: 4.7

09. “Dropped A Dime” feat. Big Joe
Lookin’ forward ta seein’ this “dime!” You know how it iz wit dem dimez! >>> Nice intro, right there! I like tha flow; I think your rhymes are catchy here, P.I.R.! “Smokin’ dat Pac-Man sound,” lol! “Fuck pullin’ no emotions!” P.I.R.!! “Trick, please!!” “Milk and cottage cheese?” WTF, lol?!? It sounds like ‘90s, kinda, gangsta, funky-kinda rap from Louisiana! You got a great throwback sound, kinda! I almost thought that said, “Adele;” it says, “A-D-L-E-R,” lol! And, you’re continuing this shit on tha 2nd verse, here! “Trade you in like a baseball card?” Of course ‘cause you got value in ya for appreciatin’ me, you know! “They call me Graveyard,” lol! Yeah, definitely some excellent production, here! Make it feel like tha ‘90s when it’s 2014 with this music—well, whatever year it was released! LOL, look how much time: Almost two minutes left, OMG! Such catchiness you bring to tha table for tha streetz, P.I.R.! How dare they “rat on [you]!” Fuckin’ kill ‘em if they rat on you! K, Big Joe on tha 3rd verse, here… Did somebody just spit? My boy, Frankie, spittin’ outta nowhere! But yeah, I’m definitely likin’ this questionable street content, meaning, you know, you questionin’ them because, you know, from tha streetz, we don’t know what kinda code they got! Good job pointin’ dat out and comprehendin’ wit this shit! Up, rappin’ faster! “You D.O.A. if you fuck wit [him]!” Great job puttin’ dat down, Big Joe; great collaboration! My Rating: 4.7

10. “I’m On It (Pt. 2)” feat. Chainsaw
Chainsaw on tha feature; look at tha blood on tha wall! >>> Dre Tree Z doin’ tha track! Beat sounds pretty nice… P.I.R. “doin’ tha radio… and, tha video?” Keep pushin’! Keep pushin’! You need more footage out there and pics! LOL, “tripping, slipping, ripping;” catchiness x3!!! LOL, “[actin’] like a witch,” huh? Hope you do make it to “platinum!” Just stay focused, no matter how old you may be! Oh yeah, sounds like a radio version, a lil’… A radio version, but catchy, consistentness right there, ya feel me? There’s a comb over there; look at it! Yup, here you are on tha 3rd verse; you know, you love him, of course, too! We all love each other; we’re family! But, not like this family [bloody wall family], LMAO!! You know, shout out ta “Grit Grimey,” too! Up, here’s more of tha 3rd verse, teamin’ up again… Hah, “ride ya like a pony!” LOL, fasho!! “Fasho!!!” “Get ya hustle on, nigga!” Ewe, “2010?” So, five years ago? Y’all prolly saw some of this at tha time [bloody walls]? And, here you talkin’ at tha end… Great job, Dre Tree Z, for tha track! “2010?” We just luv ya so much, P.I.R.! My Rating: 4.5

11. “Stop Playing With Me” feat. Young Carter
I’m definitely lookin’ forward to this Legal Dope collaboration! Lettin’ y’all do y’all thang! 2:08, it’s a short one! >>> Yeah, it definitely sounds catchy, especially since I thought debris was fallin’ on me; it’s fuckin’ raindrops, lol! You lettin’ me know that they need ta “stop playing with [cha]!” I gon always keep believin’ in ya, ya feel me? Sounds pretty great; tha club! You know, it sounds like one of them classic southern rap songs where you get in a fight in tha clubs, you know? Oh yeah, Young Carter, that voice; it sounds great to hear, once again! Seemed quick, but it was definitely worth it, you know? And, here you are again, P.I.R., wit tha “yopper!” And then, continuin’ wit tha Carter! Wow, they “shit everytime [you] come?” Well, time ta open dat asshole up, ya feel me? You know! My Rating: 4.4

12. “I’m A Pit” (Rizzo Ray feat. Gator & P.I.R.)
Well, I’m definitely lookin’ forward ta this five-minute “Pit!” >>> This iz like a perfect traphouse… I like how it has, like, a New Orleans feel, I guess? Shout out ta bein’ “a P.I.T.!” It’s funny how I talked ta “P.I.T.” (Pitbull) on my 17th & 18th birthday, back in 2005 & 2006! That was what was up! Definitely catchy rhymes on tha 1st verse, here, until it stops! “Grab him,” like that other room wit all tha blood in it, wit ya teeth! “We Dem Bois” [written on tha wall]! You “went to tha vet,” and now, you “back up on tha streetz!” Can’t stop your consistency, no matter what gets in your way, you know?! Feels like jail in here, but you know what? Autistic people like me have no fear, whatsoever! N-O, like New Orleans!! Yup, “trapped off in [his] cage;” that’s how I feel! Iz that a shadow? That’s me! Wow, 2nd verse sounds pretty rough…; that’s definitely what’s up! This Gator boy! Yeah, definitely feelin’ how you “flick” them, Gator! Yeah, it feels like just listenin’ to music in a dream! Just like, feels like a dream when you’re high, listenin’ to music like this! It’s like, iz it even really happening, right now? Iz it? “New Orleans don’t wanna hurt nobody;” really don’t! We’re all good! We don’t wanna hurt nobody, ya feel me, P.I.R.? Here you are on tha 3rd verse, as a “bitch” ‘cause you “a pit!” You already know how “grit” you “get!” LOL, you “a rednose ‘cause [you] got Adidas on?” LOL! Wow, that sounded like a dog? It was, like, five seconds ago, at 3:47, kinda like tha highway we go on, lol! All this sounds good; I gon spit a freestyle on it, right here; here goes nothin’:

“Hangin’ down at tha KPPC! /
You already know! Keep hustlin’; no time fa pee! /
Yup, dat boy, FrankieThaLuckyDog, he be rollin’! /
You already know how I got; I’m feelin’ golden! /
When they see me, they all wanna scream! /
And all don’t wanna expect nothin’ but to flee! /
Flee away from you! You ain’t nothin’ special! /
You already know tha drill and how I have ta hustle!”

How ‘bout dat? Fuckin’ right, fuckin’ right! You get betta when you freestyle when you go through shit, ya feel me? Definitely! You stuck in this music game fa’eva!! My Rating: 4.3

13. “Right Hand Man” feat. Dr. Martin Luther King
I dunno what to think… Well, hopefully, it’s a good sample… >>> Tha beat sounds like it’s nice… Yeah, we all have somethin’ to offer to tha world! And, when I go, you know, I offered quite a bit to tha world! Good job on that 1st verse, P.I.R.! What tha hell are you sayin’, lol? Oh, “Jessie Jackson?” I have no idea what’s goin’ on… Now, it’s jammin’, now that I hear tha hook… Now, tha beat sounds like you’re movin’ in space! Here’s tha sample… It’s got like a dark, like, no lights on tha road, kinda feel! Tha rude awakening! This place iz like a rude awakening! Definitely some creepy, trippy music, right chea; did you just howl? My Rating: 4.7

Overall: It was an excellent CD! You know, just complete consistency fa tha undaground of Louisiana and I just really love what you brought to tha table! All them gritty, catchy-ass rhymes, and just, your southern lifestyle that you and ya patnaz came up with! It’s just really great and I just wish you nothin’ but tha best of success with Legal Dope—I hope we meet sooner or later! You know, that would be great! It was definitely an honor doin’ this review in two locations in New York! Just trapped in these abandoned psychiatric centers, I guess? You already know! So, to all my 4/20ers out there, you know what it iz! *Puff* Take a big-ass hit of tha geeber!!!
