Article #02: Promo Only: eNewsletter April 2015

Profile: Frankie Seminario
A Shared Passion
It's not just a corporate slogan: Music IS our passion, a passion we like to think we share with all our customers, none more so than marathon Dance Radio reviewer Frankie Seminario, aka DJ Frankiethaluckydog.

Diagnosed with autism at age 12, Frankie found peace and passion in the rhythmic music he heard growing up each night on Long Island's Party 105.3. Inspired by 105's playlists, he began creating his own countdowns, based on what he would hear on P2P sites such as LimeWire, and posting them on a website of his own. His passion would later drive him, at just 17 years old, to review an album that rocked his young world, Cascada's "Everytime We Touch".

Frankie began reviewing in earnest upon receiving Dance Radio May 2006, his first Promo Only CD. He has since reviewed virtually every Dance Radio release and shared those reviews on a global platform where he has garnered the attention and admiration of artists such as Dee-1, Diana Falzone, Eddie Amador, Edun, Fila Phil, Jill Tirrell (Krista), Lokee, Lil' Cali, Kevin Gates, Marcie, Rod Carrillo, and VL Mike.

Today, with a Master's Degree in video production, a four-year stint hosting his own show on Marywood University's VMFM-91.7, 1,450 CD reviews, an article in Mass Appeal Records' magazine, and a second album about to be released to his credit, Frankie still finds the time to submit his Dance Radio reviews, for which we are most appreciative.

Thanks Frankie!

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!!!

Recorded April 16, 2015

Broadcasting from my backyard in Peckville, PA, it's ya boy, FrankieThaLuckyDog, here, reporting anotha loss in tha Louisiana community. Shirley H Jones, tha mother of Morganza, LA rapper, P.I.R., passed away earlier this morning, April 16, 2015 from a stroke; she was 77 years-old.

For those of you that may not know of P.I.R., P.I.R., which stands for "Playing It Raw," iz a rapper from Morganza, LA. Born Marquis Jones on April 22, 1976, P.I.R. has been featured on FrankieThaLuckyDog's now-defunct radio show, "Tha Louisiana Pit", where he was interviewed on September 17, 2011, and had his music play on multiple editions of tha radio show, itself. P.I.R. was featured on various editions of Frankie's Tha Louisiana Archives mixtape compilations throughout 2011 - 2013. Frankie even dressed up as P.I.R. for Halloween in 2011, as well as having an Easter celebration for him in 2012. P.I.R. had Frankie's #31 most-shocking moment on FTLD'z Most-Shocking Moments of 2011 video countdown when on tha night of December 1, 2011, he broke tha record for Frankie's longest phone call of all-time, clocking in at 4 hours, 4 minutes, 47 seconds! P.I.R. was featured on Northeast PA TV on Frankie's college segment for April 3, 2012. P.I.R. had topped Frankie's playlist on March 25, 2012 with his underground hit single, "Who I Are". Tha tune hit tha top 10 on two consecutive year-end countdowns Frankie put out in 2011 & 2012, tha 2nd song to ever do so! P.I.R. was also a winner of multiple awards during Frankie's annual Louisiana award shows in 2011 & 2012. P.I.R. released his debut CD, Who I Are (Da Mixtape), on March 26, 2014, on Legal Dope Records. Frankie iz scheduled to review tha CD live in New York this Sunday, April 19, 2015.

My condolences go out to tha Jones family!!

Review #1,460: Boosie Badazz "Life After Deathrow"

Reviewed on 4.10.2015 (Review #1,460)

Since I ain’t hear back from my girl, I figured I’d do anotha review: Boosie Badazz Life After Deathrow, sponsored by Trill Entertainment. I luv how some random person tweeted me when this CD came out, back around October 30, 2014, and was like, “Review this CD.” First off, I had work six dayz a week and was pullin’ overtime like there was no tomorrow. I’m still hella behind in shit, but because I’m ready to back up my mp3 files of tha last 11 months (4.36 GB on a data DVD disc), I needed somethin’ to fill it; this gon fill it. But yeah, it’s not like Boosie talks to me or keeps up with me, so there would be no way to make this CD a priority. Plus, he not an underground artist; mainstream shit ain’t my priority. Let alone, DJ B-Real produced that “Crazy” song. Unless B-Real was to unblock me and reconnect wit me, then, maybe I’d review this on time. For now, just deal with this… Start Time: 8:20 PM | End Time: 9:26 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!

© 2015 CD Review (Review #1,460) reviewed on 4.10.2015 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Murder Was The Case (Intro)”
>>> Diggin’ this pure-soundin’ Baton Rouge beat, though I have a feelin’ it B-Real or somethin’, so I gotta pretend it’s a guilty pleasure! With that bein’ said, I have to say, this sounds nice with tha “Murder Was The Case” sample in tha background of tha hook. And, Boosie, you goin’ off on tha 1st verse, here; diggin’ how you comin’ through wit tha aggressive rhymes and content! Tha hook’s also soundin’ pretty catchy wit tha “murder, murder, murder; kill, kill, kill” shit; nice! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice, too! Good shit; feelin’ tha dark vibe, here! My Rating: 4.6

02. “I’m Comin’ Home”
>>> Kinda awkward wit tha “my girl” shit in tha beginning, but this beat sounds nice. Tha hook sounds kinda dry, compared to tha previous hook, but it still ain’t bad. Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ okay; it’s tha beat that’s keepin’ my interest up, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse right now and it’s soundin’ a lil’ catchier wit how your flow iz. Diggin’ some of those ad-libs, includin’ tha, “Huh bruh!” Tha rest of this shit sounds nice ta hear, too; can’t complain… My Rating: 4.2

03. “Streets On Fire”
>>> Really not feelin’ tha sample in tha beginning, on tha hook. However, this beat’s soundin’ nice, on tha 1st verse; nice shit from you on tha 1st verse, here… Almost sounds like tha beat speeds up around 1:07? Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds pretty good, too; not bad… My Rating: 3.6

04. “I Feel Ya”
>>> Beat ain’t bad, here; an okay 1st verse, so far… Tha hook’s kinda plain, but it ain’t bad, here; just a repeatin’ title… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice, too; gotta hang in there… My Rating: 3.8

05. “No Juice”
Music Choice Rap wound up gettin’ this a few months after this CD was released, back in December. LOL @ Mouse doin’ tha beat and his, “Dat Me,” just comin’ outta nowhere, on MCR. Catchy hook and all that, though I neva played it ‘cause I had “Like A Man” in rotation. My Current Rating: 4.4

06. “Trouble” feat. Lee Banks
>>> Diggin’ tha beat intro, here; has that Baton Rouge sound to it, though I think it gon be anotha guilty pleasure! Matta fact, I’m on B-Real’s Instagram now, and am tryna figure out which “three tracks” he produced on here… *Checks* Fuck! This iz one; kinda hit me instantly, here… Ehh, whateva; nice hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice ta hear… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty interestin’ wit tha “water” and shit like dat. And, Lee Banks on tha 3rd verse? Why no credit to tha feature, but tha mainstream artists get feature credit? SMH @ tha uploader on DatPiff; what a dicksucker!! Weird how I have to give B-Real credit for listin’ tha feature on his Instagram! Either way, he came through nice and aggressively on this track! Great job by all of y’all, combined! My Rating: 4.4

07. “Cruisin’” feat. Yo Gotti
But, this feature gets listed? >>> An EQ Tha Misfit beat; why all these Louisiana producers on this CD? I thought you were past them, especially when I talked to one dude, recently? Tha only thing that sux wit this iz that because of these produced tracks, you’ll prolly neva get these producers to respond to you eva again—well, me, we’ll put it that way! Like, everyone’s all cocky and shit and evasive; completely unprofessional wit business, you know! But either way, this sounds nice and tha hook’s pretty nice; diggin’ tha NWA remake… Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some nice shit; feelin’ what you bringin’ to tha table for tha streetz, here… Hearin’ Gotti on tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ catchy; nice feature, though smh still @ that uploader for not knowin’ Lee Banks was on tha previous song!! Nice job wit tha 3rd verse, too, Boosie, strictly “cruisin’!” My Rating: 4.3

08. “Life That I Dreamed Of”
I have to say, I’m kinda livin’ tha “life that I dreamed of,” a lil’ bit! Like, I have independence now, smokin’, travelin’, hangin’ out, friends, etc.! Only thing that I’m still strugglin’ with iz value in tha music business! Like, I may be a Boosie at my job, but I still feel like a nobody in tha music business! When I say what I just said, it’s like, at my job, everyone values me and fiends for me, like Boosie. But, in tha music business, barely anybody keeps up with me or knows what I’m goin’ through. That’s okay ‘cause when these record labels and publications drop these articles on me, this month, they gon realize! At least three people recognize me, now!! >>> Tha beat sounds nice, here, includin’ how you celebratin’ success wit tha hook. Feelin’ tha dreams you achieved, on tha 1st verse; real happy I achieved ‘em! Now, my goal’s to reconnect wit B-Real; will it eva happen? It sux ‘cause bein’ blocked and no available phone number’s VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!! But, hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty good, here… Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse and it’s soundin’ nice, once again… My Rating: 4.1

09. Tori Speaks
LOL, speakin’ of my job, here’s somebody from my job (well, their name)! >>> Oh, it’s just your kid wit wishes; pass… My Rating: N/A

½time: A nice, consistent CD from you, so far; nice job! Keep it up! A 4.2-rated CD, currently…

10. “I’m Wit Ya”
>>> Nice beat and nice 1st verse, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s soundin’ nice with this title. It’s like, can’t deny but ta have someone “wit ya;” it’s a great “feelin’!” Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice; crazy with this “gonorrhea” shit and all dat… A 3rd verse, here… Hearin’ it and it’s like a journal vs. somethin’ for tha streetz; nice. My Rating: 4.2

11. “Gone Bad (American Horror Story)” feat. LIV
LIV iz a dance-music singer from 2003 with “Journey Of Love”, a hot song at 135 BPM, released on Ultra Records! However, what’s this? >>> Thought this would be darker and more on tha “Murder Was The Case” tip, as far as tha production. We got some real-life rhymes, here, about someone, though this ain’t my style; too slow for tha start… Also, not diggin’ tha jacked name on tha feature. Either way, they have a good voice, whoeva this iz. Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice for a slow jam. My Rating: 3.2

12. “Facetime” feat. Trey Songz
Don’t think I’m lookin’ forward… >>> An okay song, so far, with a nice-soundin’ beat; almost thought it was “Walk Thru” fa a sec., here… Tha hook from Trey Songz ain’t too bad, though I don’t anticipate his sexist-ass, these dayz… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s aight. It’s really just decent for me, but at least it ain’t long. You’re on tha 2nd verse, here, and it’s aight, once again. When you say, “I’m in New York, gettin’ money;” why no contactin’ me, yet? I’ve been busier than eva, so you might be runnin’ outta time! My Rating: 3.0

13. “Grade A”
>>> Here’s anotha B-Real-produced track, produced with Neil On Da Track, as well. Beat sounds nice and tha intro’s nice from you. Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds catchy, though you sound semi-feminine when you say tha title. Like, it sounds kinda weird, at times. Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s okay; thought it would’ve been a different topic than “bitches.” Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s straight. Hmm, this just decent at its finest. Maybe, I’d give it a “Grade” “B,” since it gon be in tha 3.0s? My Rating: 3.9

14. “Boosie Love”
>>> And, anotha B-Real beat; this one’s a lil’ slower, here… Hearin’ tha hook and tha beat’s soundin’ betta with tha sounds; catchy hook, though really slow… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s kinda draggin’… It’s catchy, but this vibe’s too slow for me. Also, anotha song for tha bitches? Tha rest of this iz just draggin’; yawn… My Rating: 3.7

15. “Here We Go Again”
>>> And, a Q-Red beat. If I can give feedback on a B-Real beat, I might as well give feedback on this nigga, here… What tha hell from :23 - :30 wit tha beat? Kinda like that, but it’s kinda risky wit how it goes in and out… This sounds betta than those last two songs; not too draggin’ and iz catchy, but simple wit tha repeatin’ hook. Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s good… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse right now and it’s pretty nice; those beats slammin’, at times, are pretty serious. Too bad this a guilty pleasure when I’m reviewin’ this. Like, it goes in one ear and out tha other ‘cause I’m basically like, “Fuck this Louisiana shit!” Ain’t realize ‘til now that this joint’s 5:43; surprised it ain’t gettin’ boring, despite tha draggin’ previous song… Hearin’ you on tha 3rd verse, here, and it’s good, as we keepin’ this goin’… My Rating: 4.0

16. “The Fall”
>>> Sounds like a nice, semi-dark-soundin’ beat, here; good start… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice. Hearin’ tha hook and it’s kinda catchy. However, I think I can relate to it. Like, “tha fall” of my Louisiana connection was when I first got robbed, back on November 17, 2011. Like, that one dude claimed he got “money” and all dat, but couldn’t pay me back a penny when I tried bookin’ him. From there, I saw myself lose touch of tha Louisiana rap scene. Not to mention, I’m not valuable in this music business, anyway, so when I die, no one’ll care about me, anyway! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too, despite my weird emotions… Unexpected ending wit tha “IG, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter” shit… My Rating: 4.0

17. “Young Niggas” feat. Shy Glizzy
Anticipatin’ tha feature!! >>> Nice beat and catchy hook from you, Boosie! Nice job wit tha 1st verse, too, Boosie; anticipates me fa Glizzy! And, here he iz on tha 2nd verse; great, great, great, lol! He always puts me in a great mood, even wit this “all we do iz get paid” shit! It’s like, I can get past it! And, here you are on tha 3rd verse, Boosie, startin’ tha verse off wit dem “sticks and stones…;” nice… My Rating: 4.3

18. “O Lord”
>>> Nice beginning, includin’ tha hook; nice beat, too. Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and I’m feelin’ tha rhymes, here, as you go through your real life… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too; can’t complain. And, tha 3rd verse’s soundin’ good, too; plenty of room left for anotha verse? Let’s see… It sounds like an outro to “free” err-body; nice to end this CD. LOL, “Dat Me,” toward tha end; thanx, Mouse! Also, why iz there 20 seconds of silence at tha end? My Rating: 4.1

Overall: I almost thought “Crazy” was gonna make me feel uncomfortable and appear on here, outta nowhere. But, I guess they’re savin’ that for Touchdown 2 Cause Hell? With that bein’ said, I thought this was a nice lil’ CD; most of tha jointz were nice on here. Tha production was pretty nice, though don’t you seem past tha local scene, Boosie?

Reviewed on 4.10.2015 (Review #1,459)

Comin’ up next iz a more-recent CD review, here: Foxx Jail Made Me Worse, sponsored by Milliyone Musik. However, it has tha logo for Trill Entertainment on tha cover; both labels? EDIT: Oh, look who fuckin’ made tha cover! They must still think he with Trill? Anotha fail!! Can’t wait ta hear this, though! Got a lotta luv fa Foxx-A-Mill!!

© 2015 CD Review (Review #1,459) reviewed on 4.10.2015 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Jail Made Me Worse”
I tried writin’ you last year; I remember… >>> Lil’ 627 beat; you still fuck wit him? Thought he was done for, a while ago? Dude don’t even like awards, smh! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice ta hear; consistent rhymin’, here… Just forgot that this was just an intro track and only one verse; nice, either way… My Rating: 4.0

02. “Unnecessary Money” feat. Mouse
Great that Mouse’s featured and prolly produced this track, but I’m really not into tha title… >>> Nice beat start from Mouse, here!! Ooh, definitely diggin’ this for a start! Will it be a guilty pleasure??? Nice job wit tha 1st verse, Foxx! And, will I be gettin’ some of this “money” from you, sooner or later? Hope so! You should pay me back tha $400 B-Real owes me, still, two years later, smh! Talk about not gettin’ “money,” in that situation, you know! Tha 2nd verse sounds consistent and nice ta hear, too; keep spittin’ all these club-type rhymes! My Rating: 4.7

03. “Don’t I” feat. Wacko
>>> Nice beat; good job on tha 1st verse and tha hook, Foxx… Hearin’ Wacko on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice and UTPtastic, here… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it sounds consistent wit how you keepin’ tha title comin’ along… My Rating: 4.2

04. “Everybody Ain’t Loyal” feat. $hizz
Ironic title and feature? >>> Nice beat for tha BR streetz; nice hook, too, explainin’ tha unloyal shit that be goin’ on. Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I can see what you sayin’, Foxx; I’ve dealt wit so much of it, lately! It’s like, this iz why I don’t fuck wit Louisiana, anymore. “Ain’t” nobody value me and shit like dat… Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse and it sounds pretty good, too. It’s pretty fucked up how “everybody ain’t loyal” and shit. If only Louisiana artists would value what I be doin’, then, I’d be good. Hearin’ you on tha 3rd verse and it sounds great, as far as how you can go from dealin’ wit tha unloyal to gettin’ away from all tha bullshit. And, I ain’t realize that was $hizz on tha hook; completely fooled me! My Rating: 4.3

05. “Help”
>>> Nice beat start, strictly from tha 225… Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds nice ta hear; great sound! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I’m definitely feelin’ tha aggression in your voice! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and damn, you goin’ through some breakup! Y’all and these relationships, lol! So stressful? Glad I ain’t have one, yet! However, I have borderline ones—I treat girls like they my girlfriend! My Rating: 4.3

06. “Fuck Wit Me” feat. Jagged Edge
Let’s see how this feature gon go; you think it gon go mainstream? Ehh…, umm…, uh… >>> Seems like tha early 2000s with JE on tha hook; lol @ their explicitness… Sounds like a good hook and a dry beat, here… Speakin’ of dry, here’s you on tha 1st verse, completely opposite of dry; great aggression, once again! Tha beat started addin’ sounds on tha 2nd hook; feelin’ it more… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too; I think tha Mouse feature’s more of a single than this… Either way, it still sounds nice. And, tha 3rd verse’s good, too; diggin’ tha eight-bar verses instead of this bein’ a full 16! Nice beat ending, here, too… My Rating: 4.4

07. “Real Nigga”
Ain’t you have a song wit this title already, back in ’12? >>> Thought it was gon be a lil’ alternative rap sound, based off tha first few seconds… However, it’s soundin’ B-Real-y on tha beat, here; nice sound, includin’ tha hook! Tha 1st verse’s soundin’ nice, here; feelin’ how you comin’ through fa these hoes, once again! Tha hook almost sounds like a feature, though I think you’re singin’ on it, like tha previous “Real Nigga” song you put out… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice, again… My Rating: 4.2

½time: A pretty consistent CD, so far; definitely diggin’ it! Lots of great production and tha features definitely kept it goin’! A 4.3-rated CD, so far; let’s keep it goin’!!

08. “Makin’ My Rounds” feat. J Bless
Neva heard of tha feature; bet they a singer on tha hook, based off their name… >>> Wow @ this pure, semi-spooky beat start!!! I’m luvin’ it!! And, that pure Baton Rouge sound to mix in with it! Gotta luv havin’ my girl on tha screen while hearin’ this beat, ya dig?! Nice shit on tha 1st verse, Foxx; you got tha aggressive rhymes and tha hunger in your voice continuously comin’!! Hearin’ tha hook and I was right about it bein’ a singer. Not tha best voice and even with “money” lyrics, but still a great vibe, here. Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice; that rough life you go through! “It’s gon be a long winter;” felt like it breezed by with work, but yeah, can’t stand snow! Glad it’s finally stayin’ above 35, these dayz, durin’ tha night! My Rating: 4.5

09. “Freak Hoe” feat. Wankaego
>>> A Lil’ Ken a.k.a. $hop With Ken beat! Definitely anticipatin’ it, but not this voice in tha beginning! I let tha previous song slide but I dunno if I’ll be able to handle this one… Hearin’ tha hook and yeah, a lil’ weird with tha voice, but luckily, I can get past it… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice from you, Foxx. LOL @ “December 5;” that night, during tha AM hours of “December” 4th, started a movement: My late-night, trippy drives! Luv goin’ down trippy, scary, dark roads while high, ridin’ in tha passenger seat, on Long Island!! Might do it tonight if my girl answers! Didn’t expect tha feature to be a rapper or a female, here, on tha 2nd verse. Almost thought it was tha hook’s person, but that’s you, Foxx. As far as this verse, it’s definitely what’s up; very consistent wit all tha rhymes! Lots ta squeeze in here! Really diggin’ how she raps ova tha beat, especially during tha final bars of tha 2nd verse!! My Rating: 4.3

10. “Your Turn” feat. Shell
Yes for Shell bein’ on tha feature, but I hope he took notes from me and got rid of that gay-ass auto-tune shit from his most-recent CD, last year!! >>> Sounds like a soft start with tha beat, but almost like a ‘90s G-Funk twist to it… Kinda sounds like you yearnin’ on tha hook, here, but I’m still feelin’ it! That’s three for three with tha singin’ hooks that I’ve been able to handle! Nice job, Foxx!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice; diggin’ this vibe a whole lot! Here comes Shell on tha 2nd verse and thank God, he dropped tha gay-do-tune! Catchy rhymes; feelin’ what he bringin’ to tha table for these females… Tha 3rd verse’s soundin’ nice from you, Foxx; good shit! Just realized Shell’s birthday was March 23, once again. I seem to just sometimes pass up birthdayz while I’m on Long Island, NY; they be feelin’ like vacations while I’m gone! But, at least I enjoyed his birthday! My Rating: 4.4

11. “Stay Alive”
>>> Tha same producer from tha previous song, though I can’t decipher their beat tag… Hearin’ tha hook and there’s singin’ on tha hook. Hmm, couldn’t quite get four for four, Foxx; this only aight fa me… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds like it could be an ending song instead of in tha middle of a CD… Real rhymes, though only okay on a CD like this… Odd that tha singer’s not credited, on tha hook, too… Tha 2nd verse from you’s not bad, as well. Prolly could’ve had this as only two verses instead of four minutes; I gon get bored, now… Anotha verse from you, on tha 3rd verse… Pretty fucked up with this story you explainin’; sucks to lose someone… It’s rough that my girl’s brother committed suicide at 19 years-old; can’t imagine… My Rating: 3.5

12. “Semi-Ratchet” feat. Wankaego
Likin’ tha “semi” on tha title; reminds me of what I say at work: “Semi-decaffeinated.” >>> A hot beat start, here! Ooh @ tha hook; diggin’ what you got goin’ on by repeatin’ this title ova this addictive-soundin’, club/street beat!! Nice hook; gotta luv tha borderline vibes of tha “semi” life!! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice; regular rhymes fa these lay-dayz, lol! And, we got Wankaego on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit a slower flow… However, she’s got shit goin’ on, once again; feelin’ tha verse… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse from you and it sounds nice ta hear; good shit! My Rating: 4.2

13. “Wish”
… >>> More Kendaletastic beats from dat boy, Lil’ Ken! See, a lil’ more life in this kinda song, already, since it has Ken on tha beat, vs. tha “Stay Alive” beat! I’m diggin’ how you comin’ through wit tha wishes, on tha hook, here! At tha moment, “If I could make a wish,” I would hope DJ B-Real & I reconnect! He need to unblock me from Facebook, Twitter & Instagram, especially since record labels, magazines & publications are behind me! It’s like, why he missin’ out on so much shit? He really trippin’ baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!!!!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and it sounds nice ta hear; better voice on this track than on “Stay Alive”. I’m not really a fan of focusin’ on fallen souljaz, though. Like, my boy from Connecticut posted a text pic tha other day on Instagram and it said, “Support living artists! The dead ones don’t need it;” sooooooooooooooooooo agree! Err-body gotta quit dickriding, already!!! And, that’s real! Nothin’ realer!! Nice job wit tha rest of this, Foxx; feelin’ it! My Rating: 3.9

14. “That Fire” feat. Shell
Let’s see which Shell feature’s better… >>> Really feelin’ tha fast-soundin’ Louisiana beat start!! You say, “A smoke anthem,” Foxx? I’m lookin’ forward! Oh, I can see why this sounds faster: “Smokin’ dat fire,” like some of dat old, ‘90s, bounce Louisiana shit it’s samplin’! I believe, Ms. Tee? Oh wait, I believe it’s Lady Red. Lookin’ through my old Louisiana CDs right now… Either way, nice vibe, fa’real!! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice; you goin’ off ta this jam! Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice, too! Good shit; keep tha consistency comin’, Foxx! And, yes, we got Shell on tha 3rd verse; still luv his, “La-look, la-look,” pre-intro shit to his verses! Feelin’ how he keep “smokin’;” dat me all tha way, now! Once I hook up wit someone and hang out, you already know what we doin’!! Glad it finally came to life!! Nice, consistent, smoketacular rhymes, Shell!! Just luv tha classic New Orleans sound, here! My Rating: 4.4

15. “Get Off” feat. Shell & Lil’ Trill
Anotha familiar title, despite it bein’ Phat’s ’08 title…? >>> One of those anthemic-soundin’ beats, here, fa tha south; good shit! Ooh, nice hook, Foxx; luv tha consistent vibe in tha beat!! That title, hook & beat slamzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!! Luv how you say tha title in a New York accent, too! Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and it sounds nice; good shit! Damn, that was a short verse, but I guess it just adds to tha appetite of more spins! Here we go wit Shell on tha 2nd verse! LOL, what’s wit tha ID? Lil’ Trill before Shell? Naw, not here! Hearin’ it and it sounds nice; glad he keepin’ tha consistent street vibe comin’ along, as well as this great sound! LOL, such a short verse!! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse from Lil’ Trill & it’s soundin’ nice, here; consistent rhymin’ at its finest… Oh, just luv that it’s such a short verse, too, lol!! My Rating: 4.5

Overall: Really dug this CD a whole lot, Foxx! You definitely keepin’ tha consistency goin’!! Definitely luved most of tha features and production, ya dig? Almost a five-star-rated CD, if it wasn’t for that one song. Also, “Wish” came close to a 4.0, as well, but you know how dat go! Hope tha next time, you send me tha CD when it comes out so I don’t have to wonder about releases! I mean, if y’all want my number and wanna follow me and shit, y’all should follow me!

Review #1,458: King Arthur "Retawded-ville"

Reviewed on 4.10.2015 (Review #1,458)

Here goes anotha review, brought to you by Macked Out Music: King Arthur Retawded-ville. Nice title, though why released in 2012 and I’m hearin’ it now? Y’all gotta start respectin’ me more and gettin’ me y’all music on time, rather than not thankin’ me for awards and shit! Hell, I even had my radio show still, at tha time (holy, Flashback Friday moment!); could’ve gotten spins! Start Time: 5:10 PM | End Time: 5:42 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!

© 2015 CD Review (Review #1,458) reviewed on 4.10.2015 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Do Ya Sumthin’” (Down Bad)
Down Bad’s song; heard this a while ago, since it was on my radio show. It’s a song of theirs from tha last decade. Because it’s old, I neva reviewed it, yet… >>> Almost thought it was “sumthin’” else, at first, but neva mind. Just like I had heard before, it’s nice and hyped up, on tha hook, as well as this nearly-influenced bounce sound! Tha 1st verse sounds nice, here, with tha “pillz;” you know! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty fast; iz this you? Thought this was Down Bad’s members, but I believe it’s all you, since I barely recognize this voice… Definitely diggin’ this fastness!! Supa on tha 3rd—ugh, “Can we start breaks,” like our girl, Ang says, already? Can’t believe we only talked when I didn’t have a car!! How fuckin’ wack!! If I was reviewin’ this back in tha day, I would say feedback like, “Oh, great verse wit how he comes through wit dat Baton Rouge street shit.” However, right now, I’m just like, “Ehh, shouldn’t’ve cut me off; I’ll ignore!” My Rating: 3.9

02. “Money Machine”
Ewe, titles like this were still acceptable, at tha time, despite me gettin’ robbed just two months before this CD came out! >>> Yeah, if this was back when this first came out, I prolly would’ve enjoyed this and been like, “Ooh, catchy title part repeatin’ on tha hook!” I’ll enjoy it at this moment, but it gon go in one ear and out tha other, here; neva did business, yet, as well! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it has a nice club sound; can’t deny it! Tha 2nd verse sounds good ta hear, too; almost sounds like featured people I don’t know of, at times… Because of titles like this, this iz why I’ve fallen off, just so you know. Like, you neva really see me do Louisiana shit, anymore; you gotta be luckily! My Rating: 4.1

03. “Hit Da Floor” feat. Supa & Tank Jones
Let’s “hit” it! >>> Really diggin’ tha beat start a whole lot! LOL, Down Bad & Macked Out Music’s sound seems soooooooooooooo long ago, like when I first started my 2nd college. Ugh, it’s Supa on tha 1st verse; whateva, but let’s pretend I enjoy this… Thinkin’ ‘bout it: Supa was two years ahead of his time of ruinin’ my Louisiana connection by blockin’ me from Facebook on January 2, 2012, two years before DJ B-Real ruined it all for me, by blockin’ me on February 5, 2014. Like, what’s wrong with these people? It’s a business world and I’m bein’ blocked, as well as no numbers to get a hold of anyone? COMPLETELY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse from you, I believe, and it sounds nice. However, I think I lost full passion for this track, already; prolly could’ve just been you… LOL, speakin’ of Flashback Friday, Tank Jones on tha 3rd verse; neva hear him on tracks, ever, these dayz… Sounds nice; great consistency of tha club flow, as always! I feel like I’m 20 again! Those 2008 times! My Rating: 4.2

04. “Bottles & Boppers” feat. Supa
>>> Sounds like a crazy beat start, this time! It’s just like how I felt about tha previous beat, but this one sounds crazier!! Really diggin’ tha hook; lost in a trance wit these sounds! You got it goin’ on wit tha 1st verse, here! BTW, by tha time I finally make my debut in Louisiana, are y’all gon still be into tha “club”? I hope it doesn’t age; I still haven’t been to one, yet! I mean, you’re only 28; don’t feel aged, yet, Mr. Arthur! Catchy 1st verse wit how you repetitively sound with tha “bottles on deck, boppers on deck” shit! And, my anticipation ruined on tha 2nd verse wit Supa, here. I really shouldn’t’ve reviewed this CD, especially since it wasn’t even sent to me. However, I just need files to fill up my data DVD, since I haven’t backed up music files since May 2014. That’s anotha reason why I’m just doin’ reviewz that go in one ear and out tha other! As far as tha verse, it just flows wit tha track, but once again, it could’ve just been you on tha track and I would’ve been happier! Can’t stand listenin’ to people blockin’ me!! Almost sounds like anotha feature on tha 3rd verse? Can’t exactly tell, but it sounds like a cocky dude, spittin’ a cocky verse wit cocky lyrics; bleh… Wow, just barely cracked tha 4.0 mark; could’ve been a 4.4 if it wasn’t fa these features! And, 12 seconds of silence at tha end, too, smh… My Rating: 4.0

05. “Party”
>>> A true jigg sound, here; hope it ain’t ruined by features, for tha 3rd time in a row!! Tha hook sounds pretty nice; can’t complain… Wit this addictive-soundin’ beat proceedin’, we got tha 1st verse, here… You should list your features on tha CD, since I know who’s who… A lil’ bit of Partners-N-Crime “Pump Tha Party”-kinda feel before tha 1st verse ends, here; nice lil’ twist… Tha 2nd verse has a nice Down Bad flow, here, though I’m kinda losin’ full interest, at times… Like, tha previous tracks would’ve been betta like this… Here’s more to tha 2nd verse with anotha dude, here… It sounds okay; can’t complain, though just straight… And, anotha unknown person on tha 3rd verse; decent, once again, but keeps tha vibe on-n-poppin’… Even more on tha—ugh, iz that Supa on tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse? Interest steadily slidin’ down! Bet this an old, ’05 song or somethin’ by Down Bad! My Rating: 3.8

½time: Expected this to be way better, but tha weird vibes and unknown features kinda throw me off… Either way, tha beats are really great, at least! And, tha average CD rating’s at an exact 4.0 flat! No roundin’ up, no roundin’ down!

06. “Move Fa Da Money” (Supa feat. Level)
How ‘bout this: Look how I reviewed this, back on January 16, 2011, when it was featured on my 4th mixtape compilation:

What’s wit all these artists wit mysterious CDs on this mixtape? Again, I think Supa has a CD—make that a few CDs—out and they’re never arrivin’ at my door? Anotha catchy, simple song here…

Even at that time, CDs weren’t arrivin’ at my door! I should’ve known I had fallen off at that time, too! Not only that, Supa has, like, tha weirdest times with me! Last time I talked to him was back when I didn’t even drive my car?!? WTF?!? He prolly still treats me like I’m 21 and can’t handle my 27-year-old ass! I reviewed this on January 16, 2011? Well, four exact years later, I was goin’ dumb to a weed cookie! Wow, sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo advanced from our last conversation!! Betta play catch up, Supa!! My Current Rating: 4.2

07. “No One Like Her” (Supa)
>>> Here we go wit tha Supa shit in tha beginnin’… Okay, lets pretend I’m still in 2009 or somethin’… Tha beat sounds nice and tha hook’s kinda catchy wit tha slight singin’… Tha 1st verse’s soundin’ straight; it’s whateva… Tha rest of this sounds random; next… My Rating: 3.7

08. “Rock Wit Me”
>>> Aaliyah “Rock The Beat” sample, here, along wit a lil’ bit of Crime Mob & Lil’ Scrappy “Rock Yo Hips” remake in tha beginning… This sounds just okay, for me; kinda sounds like it’s basin’ itself off of a bunch of samples… My Rating: 2.8

09. “Know Wat I Mean” (Hey Daem)
Wrong form: “Know” (or “Kno”), not “No”. >>> Sounds like I’ve heard this before? Y’all said, “Hey Daem,” was tha feature? Sounds like a catchy hook with a nice-soundin’ beat… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds good. Weird how this only has one verse? Forgot what tha length was, but it’s whateva; nice, either way… LOL, can’t believe how obsessed I used to be with Louisiana rap music; so weird!! I didn’t have friends, back then, lol!! My Rating: 4.0

10. “Fucked Up” (Supa feat. Big Poppa)
>>> Here we go wit tha Supa shit again… Honestly, I thought this was gonna sound pretty nice for tha beat start, to end this shit off… Really? What’s wit this clean edit shit? “Move fa da money, got it tatted on me;” ewe, so obsessed, in my Jenna tone!! Sounds like Big Poppa on tha 2nd verse? ‘Bout time I correctly analyze a feature! Sounds nice, regardless, but tha consistency’s ruined by censored words! My Rating: 3.6

Overall: I had a mixed review with this CD, and I know with this just bein’ released 17 dayz after Supa blocked me, I prolly wouldn’t’ve been that happy back then, as well… Either way, nice beats; that’s all I can say!
