Review #1,468: Baton Rouge Music Company Presents "Jigg City Radio Vol. 5: Best Of"

Reviewed on 6.27.2015 (Review #1,468)

Doin’ a review, here, tha 1st one of me bein’ 27: Baton Rouge Music Company Presents Jigg City Radio Vol. 5: Best Of, courtesy of tha Baton Rouge Music Company & DeTrane himself! And, since Young Ready died a few dayz ago, I’ve been really, really busy, and I’m back to six dayz a week at my job. So, I’m not gonna sit here for tha full time to listen to this, as I know, like, every song on here. I gotta hurry, so I gon just say what I currently feel about each one… Start Time: 6:34 PM | End Time: 7:31 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. Da G.A.N.G. “All They Do Is Jigg”
More like a Best Of with tha Baton Rouge scene of tha 2000s, here, since this was never on tha Jigg City Radio editions… But, gotta luv tha energy, as always! We need to bring this music back! I mean, there’s still some of it, from whoever still records, but let’s get rid of all that “gettin’ money” music, already!! My Current Rating: 4.7

02. Down Bad “Keep Rollin’”
OMG, I feel like I’m that 19, 20, 21-year-old that was obsessed—OBSESSED TO THA MAX—with Louisiana music with Down Bad & this, ROFL!!! And now, I’m a lil’ past their ages! And, lol @ tha filename, still goin’ by “Down Bad Ent.” for some. Only difference now with this music iz that when I hear, “Pop these pillz,” I gotta realize that I no longer have a brother… :( May 10, 2015: My 25-year-old brother was found dead in my studio room in Northeast PA, from an overdose! Currently, morphine & Xanex was all we know what was in his body. But, as bad as that was, don’t worry, this music still makes me happy and so do these times! Always luv tha energy! That’s why my job luvs me!! And, when I hang with people from my job, I feel like a celebrity, like an Infa Red, Level, DJ B-Real, etc. walkin’ around! My Current Rating: 4.6

03. A-Mar & Dyl “Rollin’”
Likin’ how “A-Mar” looks on tha back cover with tha font… But yeah, I remember these dayz; feels like late ’07 / ’08 again, still one of my best times with 2014 right behind it!! Always gotta luv tha pill music! Always!! My Current Rating: 4.4

04. Beelow “Jigga City Step”
LOL… Some of this iz remindin’ me of when I reviewed fellow DJ, Way 3000 & his Jigg City Allstars / Jigg City Rockstars / Got Pills? mixtape compilations! But yeah, might’ve heard this one once before, but it’s definitely nice and energetic! Gotta luv when tha pillz hit you! Still haven’t attempted ‘em, yet, or eva, but I have to say, weed cookies’ll really put you in tha zone! And, geebs/gravity bongs!! But yeah, great, consistent party vibes, here! My Current Rating: 4.6

05. T-Lo “All Day”
On our favorite break girl (this girl Ang from my job)’s birthday, March 11, 2015, I actually talked to T-Lo for tha first time, finally! However, nothing really since… But yeah, definitely a classic from my up-and-coming times! I was 19 and now, who would’ve thought I’d be 27! Hittin’ my peak, especially with a NYC magazine doin’ an article on me about my Louisiana life:
Luv it and even though T-Lo got burned with this one from Derty & Boosie with “Uh Oh” tha following year, this one still remains tha better one! My Current Rating: 4.8

06. Sam I Am feat. D-So “Sweatin’”
Almost didn’t remember this one, but this tha 1st new song on here, as it was just released on Sam’s The Shake Back CD, two years ago… Here’s what I had to say: Ooh, EQ doin’ a nice job on this beat! Crazy “popped a molly, I’m sweatin’” shit in tha hook; crazy shit! Sam got tha shit goin’ on nicely in tha 1st verse, comin’ through like a wild man!! Tha 2nd verse’s startin’ wit a Tupac-like flow, revising his shit. Usually, I’m not big about revising dead rappers, but you did it nicely wit tha pillz, Sam! Ooh, D-So on tha 3rd verse; good shit, includin’ bein’ anotha pill-poppin’ animal; gotta luv it!! If you don’t luv a pill-poppin’ dude, you fucked up!! I’m talkin’ ‘bout tha ones born before me!! Great shit; luv when you team up wit peeps, Sam! My Current Rating: 4.7

07. Jimi Jump “To Pieces”
R…O…F…L…!! Neva thought I’d talk to, like, every Louisiana artist back when I first heard this! I was just reviewin’ and was like, “Here, check me out,” lol. Now, it’s your responsibility to keep up wit me and my long, busy, consistent life!! But yeah, definitely still sounds real nice; can’t believe it’s seven years old!! My Current Rating: 4.4

08. Supa feat. Big Poppa, Level & King Arthur “Jiggin’ Out My Body (Remix)”
Remix, King Arthur on it & a “P” missin’ in Big Poppa’s name… But, since Supa blocked me three years ago and never restored blocking me, I’m just gonna skip this and give it tha same rating I gave it when I gave it, back when I first heard it… “She know, I’m high;” Supa dealt with me back when I didn’t even get high!! ROFL, there was a 363-day difference of me blowin’ on dat kush!! March 5, 2009 & March 3, 2010; 363-day difference?!? What a fag I was back then, right?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!? My Current Rating: 4.6

09. Big Scoob feat. T-Lo “Jigga City”
Neva heard this before? Ooh, I’m excited, lol! >>> Sounds like back in tha day. You can tell this a decade old when they goin’ at “Dem Franchize Boyz” for jackin’ their style. But yeah, nice hook ta flow with this and, of course, tha beat’s consistently hot fa tha 225! Got T-Lo on tha 1st verse, comin’ through nicely… Here’s Scoob on tha 2nd verse, soundin’ like a boss! Can get through tha “got a pocket fulla money” shit easily ‘cause this shit’s old. But, definitely not during tha current times, especially since I’ve been robbed multiple times from Louisiana artists! Got T-Lo on tha 3rd verse; he sounds catchy, but prolly would’ve been betta if there was anotha Scoob verse. But, I’m diggin’ how he stays on topic with this “Jigga City” content and party, ya dig? My Rating: 4.4

½time: Definitely somethin’ great, here, no matter who’s on it! Great for my generation and what I enjoyed, back in tha day! Can’t believe I call it “back in tha day,” now; seems like it was just yesterday! We’re talkin’ years of me sittin’ in a room, neva goin’ out anywhere!! But, luckily, I’ve reached tha point where I can do whateva I want! And, with that bein’ said, this CD’s at a 4.6 for tha CD rating, now!

10. NIP feat. Co G & Tank Jones “Out My Sox”
LOL @ “Sox;” I would do that with “sucks” and say, “Sux,” lol. But yeah, definitely a classic, here! Goes great wit my classic times of when Nu$$ie was alive! Now, it’s like, are there Young Ready-alive times? Prolly not, since I’m in a different perspective? It’s more like before-I-turned-27 times? But yeah, definitely a hot pill-poppin’ song to tha max, here, especially wit that beat!! My Current Rating: 4.8

11. T-Bo “Gott’em Jigg’n”
Goin’ back to tha blockerz (Twitter & Facebook), all ‘cause they couldn’t take my criticism, smh… I ain’t even hate on “money” rhymes, back then, too, in 2012! Can you imagine now? But yeah, don’t think I know this one; let’s make it quick, then!! >>> Beat sounds familiar, like it was jacked; can’t remember what it was, but it’s mid 2000s? Eightball & MJG? Ahh, whateva! Oh wait, yes, yes, yes, lol!! David Banner feat. Static “Crank It Up”, ’03! On March 10, 2004, I stopped bitin’ my nails for a few years ‘cause I guessed that it was gonna come on MTV2! Great moments and this actually sounded good; can’t complain… I’m sure I’ll get to reviewin’ it again on one of T-Bo’s many CDs, in tha future, wheneva that may finally be… My Rating: 4.3

12. Delwin The Krazyman “Yahhh (Part 2)”
Anotha…dude…who…annoyed…—oh wait, I got work tomorrow, so at least I’m—quotin’ y’all—“gettin’ money!” But “yahhh,” had liked it, at tha time; always go for tha “take me a shit in this bitch,” shit! Right around this time, on March 30, 2010, that’s where Q-Red started tha shittin’ pics, which unexpectedly started a movement! Luv shittin’ pics to tha max, lol! My Current Rating: 4.3

13. Down Bad feat. Savage “Mind Gone”
LOL, and this still on CDs…! Was 19, 20, 21 back then; I’m now 27 and it still sounds nice! But, since Savage doesn’t like to answer me, anymore, I’ll just stop here! My Current Rating: 4.8

14. Sam I Am “Jawz Locked”
Much betta, as far as bein’ comfortable hearin’ and laughin’, lol! Even tha filename’s still tha same from Jigg City Radio Vol. 4: “Sam I Am – Jawz Locked !;” I remembered that? I was 21 back then; I got a great memory!! But yeah, you already know what I think about this Young Hits-produced, pill-poppin’ joint!! My Current Rating: 4.8

15. Young Scott feat. Doonie & 9V “Baton Rouge, Jigga City”
Don’t think I heard this one? Only heard two Doonie songs from tha 1st Jigg City Radio edition—oh wait, no “Lil’,” here, so this more recent? >>> Producer’s tha same producer as when Southpaw & Rackley made “Gets No Better”, back in ’08, so this might be old? Either way, nice lil’ vibe, here, and it sounds nice with this “power-up” hook! Tha 1st verse from Scott sounds pretty nice; gotta feel it! Here comes Doonie on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through nicely on this shit! This was me from his birthday, last year, while I wound up goin’ to NY, gettin’ nice and fulla dat shit!! Great job wit tha verse, Doonie! Tha 3rd verse (9V?) sounds like a young dude that would fit in tha ’08 dayz? Prolly iz these dayz and it sounds good; can’t complain… My Rating: 4.3

16. Nuttiochie Boyz “Like We Jigg”
Lemme see if I remember, here, who’s in Nuttiochie Boyz…? Oh, D-So, Lil’ Yella & Lil’ Boonie; nice guess for this bein’ eight years-old! But yeah, still a nice joint, here, with that hard-hittin’ beat! Great job doin’ tha damn thang, err-body! “Y’all niggaz can’t jigg like we jigg, hoe;” classic times!! My Current Rating: 4.5

17. Sam I Am feat. T-Lo “Jiggalate (Remix)”
I remember from somewhere; nice throwback… Always luv those Shonta, energy-up beats!! My Current Rating: 4.5

18. Beelow feat. Sam I Am, Lil’ Josh & Lil’ Ernest “Nowlaters”
LOL! Such classicness, though I ain’t remember if I eva got ta hear this? Either way, definitely a classic! Gotta luv all tha colors!! Features not listed? Just luv tha pill shit, as always! Luv tha obsession!! My Current Rating: 4.7

19. Bengie & Gangsta feat. Sam I Am “Jigg For Me”
Have I heard? Prolly… >>> Luv tha “Clap Your Hands” remake sound, here, on tha hook!! Sounds nice and energetic; feelin’ it! An uncredited Sam I Am on tha 1st verse, here; keep “sweatin’!” Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty energetic, too; great vibe from them! It’s great ta have this kinda music at all times!! And, tha 3rd verse’s soundin’ nice ta hear, too; good shit! And, 1:20 of nothing at tha end? And, outta nowhere, at 6:44, there’s a hidden lil’ skit; nice… My Rating: 4.4

Overall: Wow, this still almost took an hour to do… Anyway, I thought this was an excellent compilation, ya dig? Prolly could’ve subtracted a few duplicate artists on here and put, like, Young Ready or Nu$$ie (wow, with all tha dickriding over tha past six years, no Nu$$ie, lol?). But for tha most part, definitely a great journey to back in tha day! As far as you, DeTrane, keep grindin’! Not sure where you stand with this music shit, but it ain’t ova, yet! Even with myself, I question my status at times… We may’ve passed our primetimes of ’07 & ’08, but there’s plenty more in stock! Look at me; who would’ve thought I’d have a record label behind me? Gotta keep grindin’, somehow! They’ll respect you in tha way they know how to connect witchu!
