Review #1,490: HotBoy Major "Guard Cha Grill Round 1: Tha Gangsta Gutta Edition"

Reviewed on 1.26.2016 (Review #1,490)

I finally have a lil’ time for a review, outta tha crazy-busy schedule of mine… A Kevin Gates-affiliated artist, here, here goes my review for HotBoy Major Guard Cha Grill Round 1: Tha Gangsta Gutta Edition, off Major Entertainment. I’m so tired from work, right now, so I’m gonna try and get this over with fast, especially since Major likes to follow/unfollow me on IG… Start Time: 8:50 PM | End Time: 9:25 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. “Hot Boy”
>>> I know you have an insane obsession with Gates, as he’s always on your IG posts. And, I thought I was obsessed with posting about artists? Sounds great with tha voice, beat and flow, but really can’t tolerate no “money” lyrics; hate that shit!!! My Rating: 3.7

02. “Money-Making Mitch” feat. Kevin Gates
>>> Gay hook fa me but nice lil’ beat that sounds like it’s an online rapper-type beat… Damn, that hook’s so long… Ehh, okay, but sounds like braggin’ ta me… Feelin’ tha Gates verse, here; consistent rhymin’ at its finest… A lil’ on tha braggin’ tip but it’s whateva… Hearin’ that hook again and I’ono how anyone can take this serious!!! My Rating: 3.5

03. “Messy”
>>> Hmm, not bad; okay beat and I’m likin’ how this sounds with tha vocals… Just hearin’ your lyrics makes me wonder, like, “Why iz it that every artist has to shine?!?” My Rating: 3.2

04. “Where U From”
>>> Kinda sounds like older-soundin’ Louisiana music, here, from New Orleans; not too bad… Consistent rhymes and I have a feelin’ this’ll be tha best one on this CD… My Rating: 4.3

05. “Back & Forth”
“Fouth” on tha back cover? Must be “Forward” since that’s what it says on tha filename… >>> Beat sounds like this’ll be consistent…; not too bad… Damn, it’s “Forth;” such confusion!! But, I’m likin’ tha consistency of tha delivery on this one… My Rating: 3.9

06. “Live Major”
>>> Online beats? Not even original ones? C’mon… Still, sounds nice ta hear, but nothin’ I would bump past a review! Nice-soundin’ hook and nice-soundin’ real-life rhymes, here… My Rating: 4.0

07. “Broke Nigga” feat. Blvd Jay
>>> Okay beat but I don’t like these lyrics at all! What’s so wrong about a “broke nigga?” I mean, ain’t that all I deal with in this fuckin’ music business? Like, no one can afford cheap shit like a $20 mixtape appearance I would do! Boring, unknown feature, too… That’s my fear with any new music, these dayz! It’s like, I can’t take anything new serious ‘cause all it’s about iz money!!! My Rating: 3.0

08. “Only One”
>>> An okay hook; not bad… Lots of random lyrics that you “ain’t tha only one,” here. It’s like, question, are there any virgins rappin’ in Louisiana? Like, everyone “ain’t tha only one,” like, really? Decent, overall, but a lotta random shit, here! My Rating: 3.3

09. “Trap” feat. Lump
>>> Really not likin’ that Kevin Gates tag/intro; sounds corny ta me… Like, can I go sniff a dude’s socks or somethin’, smh? Ironic that I said that ‘cause this about “money,” smfh!!! Boring, repetitive hook; can’t tolerate it! It’s kinda catchy fa a guilty pleasure-like song, but that’s about it. Ugh, this feature!! Nothin’ but “money” bullshit; what else iz new!!! My Rating: 3.1

½time: A 3.6-rated CD, so far.

10. “Jail Nightmares”
>>> Decent, but life’s fearless since my brother died; that’s how I look at it… You have “kids,” already? Damn! An okay song, overall, but kinda drier than usual with tha flow… My Rating: 3.4

11. “Set It Off”
>>> Random hook fa me? Nothin’ really interesting, but what’s up with tha “dick” everywhere?? I still don’t know how y’all constantly “fuck!” I would get judged wrong and prolly get arrested for sexual harassment if I asked to “fuck,” smh! Hate this world, at times! A random song fa me that doesn’t stand out, overall… My Rating: 2.9

12. “B & J”
>>> “B & J” = “Beyoncé & Jay-Z;” random, dry hook, here, over a soft beat… Why does a relationship have ta consist of, “You got dem stacks, I got dem stacks,” smh? Fucked-up world!! Dry song, overall; nothin’ really sparkin’ with me… My Rating: 2.5

13. “Fire Dick” feat. Kevin Gates
??? >>> Sounds like tha best-produced song on this CD? True Baton Rouge sound on tha beat, here; nice and explicit… Sick of Gates’ intermission shit with that, “I don’t get tired (get ‘em, Gates)!,” shit! It’s not like he Louisiana, anymore! A nice verse from Gates but I have a feelin’ that he gon ditch HotBoy in tha long run, just like he ditched Percy… I don’t see you standin’ a chance with Gates, in tha future; I feel like it’s an in-tha-moment moment, just sayin’… My Rating: 4.1

14. “Of A Thug”
>>> Beat’s really dry, once again, and this ain’t too bad… Damn, this just cut off outta nowhere? WTF? Okay… My Rating: 2.8

15. “Cutty Buddy”
>>> Online beat, but I’m likin’ how this sounds… Ehh, sounds like some random internet rapper, here, with tha vocals and how this sounds… Nothin’ really special ‘bout this one, overall; pass… My Rating: 3.2

16. “In The Car” feat. Delucci
>>> Kinda boring fa me; nothin’ goin’ on with this one… Kinda sounds like it could be a good song fa tha dark but I don’t see myself trippin’ off ta this one… I’ll get high ta somethin’ else, especially to someone that can follow me and not unfollow me, smh! Tha feature here ain’t too bad; decent, and thank God there’s no bullshit “money” shit! My Rating: 3.0

17. “Chevy” feat. Lil’ Blaze
>>> Beat sounds like a G-Funk sound, here… This ain’t too bad, once again; sounds like you’re on some G-shit, here… This feature ain’t too bad, either; not bad… My Rating: 3.3

18. “Go Hard”
>>> Stupid intro again! This sounds like an attempt to be catchy on tha hook, but it fails ‘cause tha beat’s typical/dry and there’s nothin’ really catchin’ my attention, here… That gangsta life on tha lyrics, here; anotha decent track… My Rating: 3.1

Overall: I’ono… I have a feelin’ you gon be a “has-been.” I just feel like tha whole Gates representation’s why you put this disc out. I feel like I’m not really gonna hear much from you after this, or if I do, it gon be one more project and then, back to a total underground approach… SMH @ tha follow/unfollowing on IG twice! I’ont fuck wit that at all!!!
