Review #1,476: Trouble "#ZayDidIt"

Reviewed on 8.02.2015 (Review #1,476)


What’s crack-a-lackin’? This ya boy, FrankieThaLuckyDog here. Now, I neva heard of this artist before, but my boy, Uncle T represents fa him and all that. So, we’re gonna check this out… Straight outta Atlanta, GA, tha ATL, it’s Trouble #ZayDidIt mixtape, which was all produced by Zaytoven and released through 2 Tru Entertainment. I’m actually at tha Kings Park Watertower in Kings Park, NY, on Long Island, and we’re doin’ this review live! We gon see how Zay did it for Trouble, here! Everything’s in my own opinion, here; whatever happens, happens! Start Time: 12:41 PM | End Time: 2:31 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. “Predator”
This tha kinda place where you might see a “predator,” right outside a water tower! >>> “Tryna get high?” I already preset that fa this! Rich Homie Quan? I’m, like, trippin’, but it sounds like him… But, this iz like an excited hook; really, like, predadating shit, here! I’m diggin’ tha mumblin’, here, and I know people criticize tha mumblin’ rap, right now, but I’m diggin’ it… Pretty consistent south; definitely diggin’ tha flow and tha voice, here! Great 1st verse and addictive hook ova this beat! Fuck “winter!” We don’t need it, but it iz easier to explore in tha “winter;” no bugs! Whoa! “Predator!” Dope shit, right there!! My Rating: 4.6

02. “Wet”
Well, it bein’ 87 degrees out, it’s far from “wet!” I don’t even think tha bed can handle this heat, so there won’t be any kinda moisture, here! >>> Sounds pretty nice; all tha shit that’s “wet!” “What did I tell ya;” killin’ it with tha “what did I tell ya!” LOL, OMG! “What did I…”—lol! Sounds like a great come-up from hustlin’ in tha streetz… At tha moment, you’re tha same age as me, but you’ll be a year older later on in tha year. Kinda like a Future and Rich Homie Quan blended into a blender! You know what? You can’t complain about it! I’m diggin’ this southern hustle right here! Luv when my “paint wet;” just got my car washed Thursday! Figured that pigeon’s listenin’, enjoyin’ tha 2nd verse, too… It sounds like this “bitch” buttered you with, like—you’re like all sticky to her and just, like, in her zone—in her zone!! My Rating: 4.4

03. “U Ain’t Street” feat. Bankroll Fresh & B Green
I’ono, I feel like this iz gonna be a nice song ta get high to! Like, look how trippy this, like, urbexing, graffiti, forest-lookin’ fuckin’ place looks! >>> Luv that Zaytove did all tha beats—Zaytoven! Really zonin’ to this beat! Twenty-one seconds in and not even any rappin’, yet? Really havin’ me zoned… Sounds pretty good on tha 1st verse… Yeah, “school” was a poor influence for me, meaning, it did nothin’ as far as peers! But, look what it did to my brain: two brainz!! Really diggin’ this…! You know what, I’m not gonna bitch about tha “money;” it just sounds great. Tha 2nd verse iz soundin’ good; thought a pigeon was gonna shit on me… “Sellin’ yo patna, doe;” “doe!” Bad… Luv it—luv tha verse, that iz! Definitely a catchy 2nd verse, right here! A “dirty bird”—“fly like a dirty bird!” Yeah, shout out ta “KLC;” his birthday was only three dayz ago! Why they “hate” you? Tell me, “Why they hate you?” “Why they hate you?!” Nice and slow, right here! My Rating: 4.2

04. “To Me” feat. Judo
I dunno why, but I’m thinkin’ Judy-related ‘cause of tha feature name but we shall see what happens… >>> It sounds like Turok for Nintendo 64 with tha beat intro, here! It sounds like good, like, business and trappin’ music… Pretty good hook; beat’s definitely on point! Ooh, “a whole gallon of wood?” They walk with a “camel toe!” Definitely feelin’ this, like, really southern voice! Definitely catchin’ on early, and I’m catchin’ on early, I know it! All right, 2nd verse iz startin’ off… That’s, like, every day, now… Yeah, tha “time’s” actually passin’, as I’m climbin’ tha watertower! Still pretty nice… I thought this turned out ta be great, overall. My Rating: 4.3

05. “Aiiight”
“Aiiight,” den! Let’s get into it, den! Leggo! >>> True confidence in here! You sound very brave on this hook; “aiiight!” You know what? This nice and smooth… Gotta “pull up” like a boss! Sounds like a good, catchy 1st verse… For tha 2nd verse, not gonna let a muthafucka get to ya! Not even a fatherfucka! Yup, they can “suck my dick;” that’s what you’re sayin’! Tha rest of this sounds good—random/good, at tha same time… My Rating: 4.1

06. “Don’t Panic” feat. Bankroll Fresh
Aight, if you say so… >>> Sounds nice and winter-y, but, like, confident-nice… Nice for darkness! “Get old like [a] damn granny!” LOL, “eat her up like a damn sandwich!” Yeah, “dope addicts…” I mean, it claimed my brother… You know, it sounds really catchy. You got a lil’ bit of Young Bleed in you! “Get old like [your fuckin’] granny!” LMAO!! Yeah, it’s all about succeedin’ on tha start of tha 2nd verse! Definitely appreciate it! So much to boost tha mood! Yup, “got it out tha mud!” You know, who would’ve thought it takes years…! “Say she get old like my damn granny (oh!)!” “Get old like [tha damn] granny!” My Rating: 4.6

½time: I have to say, this iz definitely product right here!! Tha quality iz in this southern release! Zay definitely did it on this one fa Trouble, and I definitely feel how you comin’ through wit it! You got an interesting voice, a flow, like a Future, Rich Homie Quan, Young Bleed! That’s a nice lil’ interesting mix! Hope you were influenced by them! All tha ratings combined gives you a 4.4! You know, that’s, like, a really good rating! You’re up for five stars; it could happen! I dunno… I’ve yet to climb this watertower; will I do it? We shall find out! But for now, let’s get into tha 2nd ½, right chea!!

07. “Don’t Give Up”
I hope tha media neva gave “up” on me because as busy as I am, I still keep it consistent! Like, looka, we shootin’ a live review in a fuckin’ watertower! All right—aiiight?! >>> Keepin’ that “oh” sample goin’… Kinda sounds like a simple lil’ hook; I can fuck wit it a lil’ bit… How ‘bout this for a stripper pole that I see? Soundin’ good on tha 1st verse; really feelin’ you… Almost sounded like Gucci at tha end with, “Yeah…” You know, Zay doin’ tha damn thing with that kick! Yeah, it’s all about provin’ yourself on tha 2nd verse! I’m bein’ brave by climbin’ this watertower! It’ll get harder and harder with each song review! I thought this was pretty catchy, overall… My Rating: 4.0

08. “Shit Crazy” feat. YFN Lucci
I’m very anticipated fa this…! Lookin’ at this watertower ladder right chea! Ugh, this ladder I’m on sucks! >>> I’ono about this voice…; kinda shitty? Even on tha 1st verse; can’t really tolerate it that much… Tha hook’s a lil’ catchy, but I can’t tolerate tha voice effect and shit. Tha 2nd verse sounds a lil’ betta, here… “Fuck tha penitentiary,” unless it’s abandoned! My Rating: 3.7

09. “U Don’t Know”
I really “don’t know” what to expect at this point, so here we go… >>> #ZayDidIt! This soundin’ darker… It’s a simple kinda hook for me, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse…; It’s kinda… I’ono what ta say… Fuckin’ watertowers “and shit!” “Fuck” tha “shit;” “fuck” it! “Fuck it!” Tha 2nd verse, here we go… “Why do you envy [him]?” It iz weird, I can see ‘em jiggin’ ta this fa some reason… My Rating: 3.8

10. “Remember Da Time”
Definitely gonna “remember [this] time!” >>> Beat sounds pretty good… “Imagine” me just, like, dreamin’ of travelin’ with bein’ inside this watertower! Regular-soundin’ hook; decent-soundin’ 1st verse… I dunno, kinda random fa this, so far… Tha 2nd verse sounds okay, here… Just starin’ at that ladder to tha top! My Rating: 3.6

11. “We Made It” feat. Big Bank Black
This gon be a quickie… Makin’ our way up there faster than I thought! >>> LOL, “Zaytoven!” Pretty breezy, ova here… Sounds like anotha simple lil’ hook, right here… Sounds good on tha 1st verse, here… Them Zay keys are goin’! A lil’ bit of Yo Gotti soundin’, lol? Tha Quan-catchin’-soundin’ 2nd verse, right chea! My Rating: 3.5

12. “Ready”
Oh, produced by Shawty Fresh, instead… Ehh, one day, I’ll be “ready” ta—maybe if I’m not doin’ so much filmin’ at once, I’ll go up there [tha watertower]… >>> Sounds like a slow trappin’, like a regular ol’ trappin’ hook… Gangsta shit right there on tha 1st verse… This iz, ta me, just regular rappin’ that err-body does… “Can’t remember [your] weekend?” Well, this one I definitely gon “remember!” What tha hell goin’ on there on tha start to tha 2nd verse? Tha 2nd verse a lil’ random, but it’s pickin’ up wit tha flow… My Rating: 3.7

Overall: It was a nice CD; definitely consistent production from Zaytoven. First half was pretty interesting that really caught my attention, and tha 2nd ½ was good, but it just seemed like, I’ono, it was like music you always hear from tha south. Similar content and, like, just a similar flow. And, nothin’ like dat caught me like tha 1st ½, but definitely great fa a live review fa someone I neva heard before, ya know? So, we just gon keep poppin’.
I have ta give you props fa bein’ a shitter! You know how it iz when you have so much shit on yo mind; just let it out via tha toilet!
