Review #1,464: Shy Glizzy "Law 3: Now Or Never (Hosted by DJ Drama)"

Reviewed on 5.31.2015 (Review #1,464)

Kinda been a lil’ M.I.A. for tha moment, as I’ve been busy with work and slowly catchin’ up on things. However, tha most important thing that’s happened to me, lately: Exactly three weeks ago, on Mother’s Day, my 25-year-old brother died of a (most-likely) heroin overdose in my studio room, on May 10, 2015. Pretty sad moment, though I’ve been strong to get past it… But, I’m still on tha grind, each month, but I have a lot of my own video projects to focus on… This review I got right here iz Shy Glizzy Law 3: Now Or Never (Hosted by DJ Drama), sponsored by Glizzy Gang. Not a Louisiana CD but I had been requested to review this, so I finna review it now. I’m really lookin’ forward to hearin’ Glizzy ‘cause I really enjoy him! Start Time: 8:11 PM | End Time: 9:05 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. “Legend”
A nice title and I know, a decade from now (think: May 31, 2025), I’m gonna remember you, Glizzy! Lookin’ forward to startin’ this thang off wit K.E. On The Track doin’ tha beat! >>> Beat’s pretty slammin’, in a slow, powerful way, so far! Gotta luv your voice; definitely jammin’ and feelin’ good, here! Luved when your “Awwsome (Remix)” was out, especially when I got high with my girlfriend on Christmas! Mane, I couldn’t say it any louder: “I fuckin’ LOVE my life!!” Oh, if I was high, right now, reviewin’ this! But, I gotta just review it while I have free time! Nice job wit tha 1st verse; flow’s unbelievable!! And, tha hook’s pretty nice, too; gotta luv this!! Ooh, such greatness wit how you come through wit it!! And, comin’ through on tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice, too! Just livin’ dat Glizzy life, ya dig?! LOL, at times, I be trippin’ and think, “Lesbian,” you sayin’, when describin’ someone on here, lol? Luckily, I know: “Legend!” My Rating: 4.8

02. “Celebration” feat. Bobby Shmurda
Oooh, oooh, oooh!! Zaytoven doin’ tha track, as well! Luv that whole Shmoney crew and it’s pretty exciting to get Shmurda on tha track, here, witchu!! Hope they (him, Rowdy Rebel & tha others) get back on tha grind soon from bein’ locked up! >>> Anticipatin’ tha beginning; gotta luv tha beat!! Sounds catchy on tha hook, here, wit “50 souljaz!” Diggin’ how you comin’ through on tha hook! Wish I had more time to review all these non-Louisiana tapes, but it iz what it iz, for now! Just gotta luv life, though!! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and uh oh, “I forgot to take my medication!” Nice job; just too addicted to your flow! And, here comes Shmurda on tha 2nd verse!! Yeah, this sounds great; always enjoy his gritty voice! I may luv his grimy voice, though he looks like a happy kid when I see him? Weird… Still great ta hear him on this! My Rating: 4.5

03. “Anywhere” feat. 3 Glizzy & 30 Glizzy
Ooh, Glizzies in tha buildin’!! Young Chop on tha track… >>> Definitely a dope track, once again, and I’m diggin’ this beat! Oh, such great music while you’re high!! Diggin’ tha 1st verse, too; consistent flowin’ at its finest!! Diggin’ tha voice of tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through with that great, grimyness! Here comes tha 3rd verse and it’s pretty nice; blocka-da-blocka-blaow! My Rating: 4.4

04. “Funeral”
Tha more-ironic song, sadly. K.E. On The Track and I actually heard this just a month ago, as it got its only spin on Music Choice Hip-Hop And R&B; that’s how I knew it. My first listen was pretty impressive, as I was on my way to Orient Point (Long Island Sound), high. I heard tha track and was so happy with it! I was like, “Wow, I wonder what people’ll think of me when I’m gone? What will my legacy be? How special will my ‘funeral’ be?” Then, it turned out my brother passed instead of me; crazy! As far as tha review itself, nice lil’ track. Could imagine tha 1st listen sober, would’ve prolly thought, “Uh oh, soundin’ a lil’ sad and soft for tha beat and tha content.” However, good thing for that high listen ‘cause this tha shit! Just luv tha hook and tha whole definition of an upcoming legacy! Tha 1st verse sounds great ta hear, but I just luv how you deliver some of tha lyrics: “Bury me in all white linen;” sounds like a regular voice of yours, despite this title. My Current Rating: 4.7

05. “What U Talkin’ ‘Bout”
Doughboy Beatz on this track; let’s hear it! >>> Really diggin’ this dark beat start!! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice; luv how you’re not to be fucked with!! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ good, as always. Can’t really say much about what you be spittin’ about. It’s just regular rhymes but with such a catchy voice and catchy flow! Perfect 2nd verse, here: “Niggaz switch up like tha seasons.” I can’t tell you how many done changed on me, as of this past year! Like, nobody talk on tha fuckin’ phone, anymore, like, really? No wonder why business done died! But, nice job wit how you comin’ through on tha 2nd verse, too! Gotta luv these short-and-quick songs of two verses when you’re tha only one on tha track! No filler here! My Rating: 4.4

06. “Cocky”
LG doin’ tha track; leggo! >>> Catchy beat, here… Hearin’ you on tha hook and it’s catchy, despite it bein’ “cocky,” lol. I don’t sense tha cockiness, yet… Tha 1st verse ain’t bad, so far; this a decent/great song, still. Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and this iz soundin’ more like just a decent song fa me; I still luv your flow and voice, though! My Rating: 3.7

07. “Ridin’”
Roger Beat beat… >>> Kinda has a “Funeral” vibe with tha flow, here, but more on a happier, gangsta-soundin’ style. Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds nice with this beat; gettin’ in dat Glizzy zone, right now! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty catchy; diggin’ tha drug-related “pies” content… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s a catchy start with how you rhyme “savage!” My Rating: 4.0

½time: So far, this a pretty hot tape; definitely luvin’ your voice and flow at all times! Keep up tha great work with this DC rap! You’re currently at a 4.4 for tha CD rating; keep it up!

08. “What To Do”
An All-Star production. >>> Not really into tha “money” shit ta start off tha hook, though I’m diggin’ this basic, southern beat and how you deliverin’ tha hook. Tha 1st verse’s soundin’ pretty nice; a decent track at its finest… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and as it’s gettin’ darker out, this track gives me a nice, darker vibe… Overall, this a basic track that’s still pretty nice ta hear. My Rating: 3.8

09. “Handcuffs”
Diggin’ tha title, here, produced by K.E. On The Track! >>> Diggin’ tha intro to tha beat; gives me a “Funeral” anticipation level! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty hot; diggin’ how you say tha title! What a catchy hook fa tha streetz and these “handcuffs,” lol! Tha 1st verse sounds pretty nice; blends in so much with tha hook to where you can’t even tell there was a transition in tha track! My Rating: 4.5

10. “Money” feat. Young Dolph
Not a fan of tha title but I’m definitely a fan of tha feature, especially with Zaytoven doin’ tha beat!! “Preach!!” >>> A nice beat, fasho. As far as tha hook, it decent; I’ll approve this for a “money” song. Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and blah…, I just can’t get into this content. Still, not that bad for tha 1st verse, overall. A lotta tha other jointz on this CD were a lot better, though. Now, here’s some excitement: Dolph on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit content at its finest! “Family fulla dope dealers” ta all this “kidnapped” shit and trappin’ at its finest! Definitely a lot betta with hearin’ his verse than what I thought of this joint, overall! My Rating: 3.9

11. “She Like Me” feat. Migos
Ooh, speakin’ of Zay, here’s Migos on this feature, with Da Doman on tha beat!! >>> Diggin’ your “Young Heffay” (sp?) shit in tha beginning of tha songs; nice beginning! Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds pretty nice! Because I wrote “Zay” for Zaytoven in tha beginning of my preview for this track, I literally thought this was Zay on tha track, based off these sounds! However, this Doman dude got this shit on lock! Nice production! Nice job wit what you got goin’ on in tha 1st verse, Glizzy; good shit! A lil’ mainstream with how you sound, but it ain’t too bad… Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, Quavo on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit his catchiness!! Migos must be tha most-listened to group while I’m high! I don’t know one song of theirs that was released that I didn’t listen to while high! It’s like, when a new release comes out, that smoke hits my lungs and then, I know to put a Migos song on, ASAP!! Great job, Quavo, strictly braggin’ in an excellent way!! And now, Offset on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through with a consistent flow at its finest!! Just luv this consistency!! Trappin’, non-stop, as well as rappin’, rappin’, rappin’!! My Rating: 4.2

12. “Better Days” feat. Goo Glizzy
Got anotha Glizzy Gang member, here, on tha feature, with Trauma Tone on tha beat! >>> Nice beat; a nice, dark vibe, with a lil’ bit of an “Internet rap” vibe, fa me, here. It sounds like tha quality came from a random rapper from tha Internet. Tha 1st verse from Goo’s soundin’ good ta hear, no matter if an Internet rap vibe or not; I fucks wit it… Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse, here, and it sounds decent. You’ve sounded catchier on previous songs, but this iz still good to hear, at times. Your “ah, ah, ah, ah, ah” shit sounds catchy, at least. And, “my next birthday” iz only three weeks away! Wow, pretty scary that I’m in tha middle of my brother’s death date and my birthday! He died 21 dayz ago and now, I’m 21 dayz away from my birthday, no less on tha 21st! Tha big 27! My Rating: 3.8

13. “Everything Golden”
That’s how I feel about my life, right now: High car rides, a legendary reputation at work, hangouts, great music & how creative my talent iz! Zaytoven on this beat; leggo!! >>> Diggin’ this beat; nice job, Zay!! This one gives me a Gucci Mane vibe, now, with how you comin’ through on tha hook! Good shit on tha hook; keep stayin’ valuable and “golden!” Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like a gangsta’s paradise, here! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds decent; flows over nicely… My Rating: 4.1

14. “My Heart” (3 Glizzy feat. Shy Glizzy)
You on tha feature, this time, with tha other Glizzy on tha beat (EA Glizzy), lol! >>> Tha beat sounds pretty nice; diggin’ those sounds! Tha hook’s pretty nice and catchy, too; can’t complain! However, I had to find my independence on my own! My “mama” always takes care of me, but with bein’ independent, I had to figure that out on my own! Anyway, hearin’ 3 Glizzy on tha 1st verse and he sounds catchy, with nearly tha same flow as you… And, here you come on tha 2nd verse, Shy Glizzy; sounds good ta hear, as far as tha family content… My Rating: 4.0

15. “Thank You”
Lokey doin’ this beat ta wrap this up… >>> Diggin’ this beat fa an endin’ track… Ooh, definitely diggin’ how you comin’ through with tha hook! Sounds catchy ta hear that title, most definitely!! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ great; consistent rhymes from tha Glizzy himself! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it ain’t that bad; decent ta wrap this CD up… My Rating: 4.3

Overall: I definitely enjoyed this tape a whole lot; lots of great moments, here! You definitely got a unique voice ta hold shit down, as well! Your flow iz unbelievably catchy and you definitely got that street shit on lock! Keep up tha great work with stayin’ on tha grind; tha grind don’t stop!!
