Review #1,487: Raj Smoove "The Greatest DJ In The World Vol. 1"

Reviewed on 12.25.2015 (Review #1,487)

Of course, not workin’ on Christmas and havin’ my half-brother figure out some new games in tha meantime, I figured I’d do a review… This one was sent to my email, randomly, from Raj Smoove, I believe… It’s Raj Smoove The Greatest DJ In The World Vol. 1, released on Paper Chasin’ Organization (P.C.O. Entertainment?) & D.E.O. Recordings. A compilation, let’s see what’s good wit this one… Start Time: 8:01 AM | End Time: 9:06 AM

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. Raj Smoove Opening
>>> Nice movie intro, even though I feel like, it feels great to do reviewz again, but still feels weird… My Rating: N/A

02. Raj Smoove & Tunechi “Intro”
LOL, goin’ with tha “Tunechi” ID, here… >>> Sounds good with all that mixin’ that reminds me of tha early ‘00s, lol. My Rating: N/A

03. Lil’ Wayne “Pour Up”
Now, back to Weezy, lol… >>> Sounds like one of those regular-soundin’, newer Wayne songs out nowhere… Nothing terrible like tha end of tha ‘00s/early ‘10s, but just basic… Still, kinda long? No comment on tha rest of this boring shit… My Rating: 2.0

04. Paasky feat. Kourtney Heart “Negus”
>>> Not really anticipating R&B on this mixtape… Once tha rappin’ comes in, it only sounds decent; nothin’ strikin’ at all… It says, “Nigga,” on tha hook, but it’s titled “Negus,” lol? My Rating: 1.8

05. Raw Dizzy feat. Kidd Kidd “Ball”
! >>> Diggin’ tha start, so far; best from this mixtape, so far! Good shit from Dizzy on tha 1st verse, here; good, consistent rappin’ at its finest… Tha 2nd verse sounds good on this, too, as well as tha simple hook… Hearin’ Kidd on tha 3rd verse and it ain’t bad, here; still betta than tha previous jointz on here! My Rating: 3.9

06. Kris Baptiste “No Play”
>>> Almost sounds like Drake to me… Hearin’ tha verse and it ain’t too bad, so far… Tha rhymes sound kinda catchy, but at tha same time, sound kinda typical… Tha hook’s shitty to me; no need for dumbass voice effects! Tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad, here, though nothin’ that’ll capture me; almost has a Big Sean-like flow, now… My Rating: 3.1

07. LG feat. Kidd Kidd & Jay The Cool “Shive”
>>> Sounds like somethin’ comin’ from tha streets of N.O., here, fa tha 2010s… Not too bad with tha 1st verse, here; at least it ain’t terrible… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s nice; nothin’ much ta say about it… Hearin’ Kidd on tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty consistent in tha beginning with tha “test up” shit. LOL @ tha reference ta “Neva Eva” during tha last parts of tha 2nd verse; nice! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse from Jay and it’s nice with tha rappin’, but it’s ehh, as far as catchiness… My Rating: 3.7

08. Gus & Buddy “Each Ova”
>>> Ain’t know this “Buddy” passed… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s okay; hearin’ tha 1st verse and this a-tune shit doesn’t go with me!! Not likin’ tha 2nd verse’s voice, too; no interest in this! OMG, a 3rd verse? Why?! Was gonna rate it a 1.1 but I’ll go even lower now!! My Rating: 1.0

09. Curren$y feat. Lil’ Wayne & August Alsina “Bottom Of The Bottle”
This more of a crossover-soundin’ song fa Mr. $y, even though I’m startin’ to like it more. Odd to see it on Music Choice Hip-Hop And R&B vs. Music Choice Rap, but that’s how it be, sometimes… My Current Rating: 4.2

10. Paco Troxclair “Duffy”
Glad this word’s back! >>> Kinda has an old-school vibe to it in tha beat, a lil’; almost reminded me of “Here I Go” with tha bass… Shit sounds nice on tha 1st verse and tha hook’s on-n-poppin’! Definitely diggin’ tha great vibes of “goin’ duffy,” here! Too bad err-body abandoned tha “duffy” term ta just “get money,” now, smh! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice fa tha “Uptown” ones, as this Paco dude says! Tha 3rd verse pretty nice, too, even though in my opinion, what would make this mixtape more consistent with tha soundin’ iz if most of tha songs were two-verse songs! My Rating: 4.2

11. Hot Boy Turk feat. Lil’ Wayne “You Mad Yet”
>>> Sounds aight, so far, with Wayne on tha hook, minus tha “money” garbage… Hearin’ tha 1st verse, here (Turk), and it sounds nice ova this beat… “I bubble like Jacuzzi;” nice! Pretty nice joint, overall; startin’ ta dig tha Wayne hook even more… Uh oh, here he comes on tha 2nd verse, too; can he handle it? Ehh, randomness, here… “My niggas move weight like Kelly Clarkson;” weak line/reference? An okay/almost-weak verse fa me… My Rating: 3.8

½time: Not too great of a start, so far, as there’s a bunch of decent tracks and a bunch of weak ones… Still, we’re movin’ through this! A 3.1-rated CD, currently.

12. Tre G “She Say She Love Me”
>>> This sounds good; nice lil’ dark sound, here… I’ono why but this voice almost reminds me of Lil’ Keke, at times? Not really diggin’ tha hook with tha “know I’m gettin’ money” shit but other than that, it’s decent… SMH @ 1:45 where “shit” iz censored! My Rating: 3.4

13. B Streezy “100”
>>> Kinda on tha R&B vibe fa me, but that’s what I expected from him, too; not tha best start fa me… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t too bad; kinda feelin’ this slow beat… Tha 2nd verse’s not bad, but I feel like nothin’s capturin’ me with this one, either… My Rating: 2.6

14. Kourtney Heart “Villain”
>>> Kinda a strange-soundin’ song fa me with hearin’ her as a “villain,” but this sounds really catchy for an R&B song, lol. Definitely feelin’ all tha catchy vocals and sound, here, lol, especially that chorus/title! My Rating: 4.2

15. Flighteous “Right There”
>>> Just a decent-soundin’ song, here, between tha beat and tha rappin’… My Rating: 2.8

16. Kevin Gates “Kno One”
LOL! Would’ve heard it for tha 1st time here if I wasn’t workin’ six dayz a week and carin’ about some stupid bitch that I put my all into, earlier this year! But yeah, just like tha Curren$y song, this anotha crossover one that’s on Hip-Hop And R&B vs. Rap (Music Choice). Kinda soft, but kinda good, at tha same time. P.S.: Nice drop; wish he would’ve done one for me in tha past! My Current Rating: 4.0

17. Dee-1 feat. Jones “Show On The Road”
>>> Nice lil’ strong hook with tha beat and everything; excellent start! Nice lil’ 1st verse from Dee, here, strictly stayin’ motivated to “tha road!” Luv when I hit “tha road,” but it only has been to limited areas nearby, so far, such as Pennsylvania & New York… And, tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice from Dee, here; nice job, guys! My Rating: 4.3

18. Kidd Kidd “N.O. (Right On Time)”
>>> Sounds catchy with tha “burps” and all that, lol? Nice 1st verse but tha hook’s just basic fa me; I get it! “That check!” My Rating: 3.5

19. Sheba Songs “Restraining Order”
>>> Not feelin’ this a-tune garbage at all!! Couldn’t tell if it was a female or male at first, but it’s a chick; bleh…! My Rating: 1.0

20. 5th Ward Weebie & Big Choo “Lurkin’”
This one looks like it gon be good! >>> Nice drop in tha beginning but lost all interest in this once I heard tha “Don’t Tell ‘Em” beat intro… Unless this can be a lil’ bounce-y, it could have a comeback…, maybe… Well, it looks like tha beat’s changin’ up a bunch of times; not bad for a bounce track… I’ono, this kinda boring fa me, overall; thought it was gon be a brand-new-soundin’ track… My Rating: 3.0

21. Kourtney Heart “Life Of The Party (Beat Back Remix)”
>>> I figured it was gon be bounce after tha previous joint on here… Kinda sounds nice ta hear; can’t complain… Again, anotha nice hook; great fa an R&B joint. Tha rest of this kinda drags on; like, it could’ve been shorter? My Rating: 3.3

22. Tunechi “Outro”
>>> Soundin’ nice and fulla dat shit! Really random and long fa an ending, but you know I luv when I hear Wayne talkin’! In tha end, afta all this “bag”-searchin’, Wayne “fucked this bitch;” bow!! My Rating: N/A

Overall: For tha most part, this mixtape was just touchin’ average at its best… A few R&B vibes got in tha way fa me, while there was a-tune garbage and shit. But, a few nice tracks, at least… And, this has been anotha FTLD review!
