Review #1,504: Rowdy Rebel "Shmoney Keeps Calling"

Reviewed on 6.30.2016 (Review #1,504)

Got anotha review comin’, right na: Rowdy Rebel Shmoney Keeps Calling, off dat GS9 Entertainment! That’s right! Not a southern release but somebody I fucks wit tough! Hope tha GS9 click gets fully restored and err-body gets outta jail soon! I really dug tha whole Shmurda/GS9 movement and they really held down tha 2nd ½ of 2014! I wanna shee what Rowdy Shrebel workin’ with, chea, lol… Start Time: 4:32 PM | End Time: 5:28 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. “Fetty’s Song (It Was All A Dream)”
Not sure what to expect, especially with “Fetty” in tha title… >>> Sounds like ‘80s pop in tha beginning; not sure what ta expect… I kinda am likin’ this different, laidback vibe… Of course, I’ve always loved your voice and delivery; nice rhymes… My Rating: 3.8

02. “Touchdown Plaxico” feat. A$AP Ferg
Lookin’ forward ta this one! >>> Sounds like an anticipatin’ intro/beat! You always know how ta handle these tracks; gotta love it!! Definitely feelin’ how you on tha grind with tha hook, here; “touchdown,” fasho!! Gotta love how you start tha 1st verse with bein’ “in Cali, smokin’ Cali;” yeah!! Hope we meet up & we do some business in tha future! Tha 2nd verse sounds nice from Ferg, here; energetic collab fa tha East Coast!! My Rating: 4.2

03. “Gang” feat. Lil’ Durk
>>> Really loud surround ta start this off; let’s see, here… Again, I’m feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha hook; sounds like a lotta energy! Surprisingly, I’m feelin’ how Durk comin’ through on tha hook with repeatin’ tha title; good shit! Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit dat good shit, as always! Durk on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit nice shit, too; good collab! Surprisingly, I like tha previous two songs betta, but this still quality! My Rating: 3.7

04. “Young Rich Niggas” feat. Rich The Kid
>>> Really feelin’ tha beat, here, as it reminds me of “Hot Nigga” and those classic Rebel tracks! Definitely anticipatin’, here; gotta luv this, so far! You doin’ ya thang on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit dat shmoney music! Definitely vibin’ off this; really luvin’ tha energy, as always! Tha hook sounds nice; gotta love it! Just a great vibe at all times, here!! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too! Iz that Rich The Kid at 1:39? Sounds like him, randomly, lol… Randomly dabbin’, lol? Nice collab, even though not credited on where I downloaded it from (but, it’s credited on tha back cover); caught me off guard! My Rating: 4.5

05. “Shmoney Speaking”
! >>> Quality trap music at its finest, here, fa tha beat and how you comin’ through wit all this energy!! Can really feel it in tha beat, here!! Tha 1st verse’s pretty consistent, here; just luvin’ all tha energy! Tha hook’s fulla even more energy, here; can’t deny it!! Only real niggaz gon feel this shit; this shit’s official! You gotta be inta rap that doesn’t sell out ta fuck wit this shit! Tha 2nd verse’s on point, too! My Rating: 4.3

06. “In The Bedroom” feat. TeeFlii & Abilly
>>> Thought this was gon be a lil’ laidback, but it’s soundin’ like it gon still bring energy to tha table… Let’s see if I can handle tha features, though… Okay, so far, tha beginning doesn’t sound bad, at all; nice… Nice job with tha hook, here, from TeeFlii… Here you are on tha 1st verse; not bad… Kinda sounds like your voice’s lost, though, if you know what I mean (voice effects)… Tha 2nd verse’s voice’s whateva; can’t really get serious about this… It ain’t awful, it aight; at least that beat keeps you alert, lol. My Rating: 3.6

07. “Birken” feat. Corey Finesse
>>> Definitely feelin’ tha start, here; “rowdy” at its finest, ya dig? Gotta luv ya voice and you doin’ tha damn thang on tha 1st verse, here! Gotta keep it street to tha fullest; NY in tha buildin’, of course! I’ono why, but I keep thinkin’ tha title’s a spin-off of tha word, “Broken,” kinda like, “Money” vs. “Shmoney,” lol. Nice job wit tha hook, here; can’t complain… Now, we got a Corey dude on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some nice shit! Definitely diggin’ what he bringin’ to tha table fa you, here; almost sounds like Rich The Kid, a lil’… Gotta luv how you point out how dude “took a shit,” Rebel, lol! Fuckin’ love ya!! My Rating: 4.1

08. “Applying Pressure” feat. OP
>>> I’m diggin’ this trap-rap sound; nice beat and how you comin’ through on tha 1st verse! Tha 2nd ½ of tha 1st verse belongs ta OP and it sounds nice; good shit! My Rating: 3.7

09. “Beam Jawn”
>>> This sounds great, too, just how we left off from tha previous joint! Nice shit on tha 1st verse, Rowdy, as well as tha beat! Tha hook’s catchy as fuck!! Gotta luv tha G-shit you bringin’ to tha table!! Definitely one of my favorite hooks on this tape, so far!! And, a 2nd verse, here; really rowdy, lol!! Gotta luv this shit to tha fullest!! My Rating: 4.6

½time: Didn’t really point it out, but I ain’t really feelin’ those tags in tha beginning of each track (“*Laughs* Girl, he got shmoney!”); I’m not a tag person… But, this tape’s definitely fire!! Gotta luv all tha rowdy & energetic shit you bringin’ to tha table at all times!! No disappointin’ shit, here!! A 4.1-rated CD, so far; keep it up!!

10. “Lifestyle” feat. RockyRich
>>> More of an East Coast-soundin’ beat, here; nice rhymes, over a “Hot Nigga”-soundin’ beat… Likin’ tha beat sound around :35, too; warped at its finest! Tha hook from Rich sounds nice, here; luvin’ tha warped-soundin’ beat sounds in tha background! Here’s Rich on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some decent shit… My Rating: 3.7

11. “This Or That”
>>> Diggin’ these less-than-three-minutes jointz; no filler, here! Feelin’ tha consistency you bringin’ to tha table on tha 1st verse, here! Definitely diggin’ this old school-soundin’ beat, too! Nice lil’ hook, too, whether it’s Black Sheep-soundin’ or not! My Rating: 4.0

12. “Right Now” feat. Bobby Shmurda & French Montana
>>> Sounds very energetic fa an undaground rap track, here! Nice hook from French; dope shit!! Hearin’ Bobby on tha 1st verse and he doin’ tha damn thang; definitely feelin’ y’all vibez!! Got French on tha 2nd verse, kinda blendin’ in wit tha hook… A lil’ repetitive, but it still goes off! Here you are on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through wit some jammin’ shit; not bad… Seems like I like Bobby’s shit tha best, outta this whole track… My Rating: 4.1

13. “Smith & Wesson” feat. Kent Jones
>>> Tha hook sounds nice wit Kent doin’ tha damn thang with tha catchy vocals… Tha beat kinda plain, but it’s good ta hear you clearly, here, Shrebel, lol. Sounds like a catchy-soundin’ 1st verse… I’ono, but tha sound in tha beat reminds me of some shit ta get high to… Hearin’ Kent on tha 2nd verse and it sounds like an attempt of soundin’ like tha ’07 Wayne or somethin’… Still, not bad, overall; decent collab… My Rating: 3.8

14. “I Just Wanna Ball” feat. 2 Milly
Keepin’ tha features goin’ throughout this whole entire CD! >>> Beat straight; tha hook sounds good from you… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you shinin’, here; not bad… Nice street shit from Milly on tha 2nd verse, but I think he gon only be remembered for “Milly Rock”. My Rating: 3.7

15. “All About Her Shmoney” feat. Bobby Shmurda & Too $hort
Forgot to mention: I now write “smoke” as “shmoke” ‘cause of you guys; you know that? Power!! >>> Definitely anticipatin’ tha beginning; sounds like it gon be jammin’! Luvin’ tha hook, here; “all about her shmoney!!” Tha 1st verse from you sounds nice, here; definitely some jammin’ shit!! Here’s Shmurda on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit dat good “weed shmoke;” you know!! Too $hort on tha 3rd verse? Not credited? Just a sample? Just gonna put him at tha end of tha feature, here… Decent, though random? My Rating: 4.3

16. “We Winnin’” feat. Starlow
>>> Beat sounds nice fa a trap-rap track, but that hook’s definitely “winnin’!” Luv tha GS9-soundin’ delivery on tha hook!! Starlow got this shit on lock! Here he iz on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some nice shit ova this beat… Here you are on tha 2nd verse, deliverin’ dat hot shit ova this beat!! Shit yeah, gotta luv this!! My Rating: 4.3

17. “Kevin Durant”
>>> Wow, tha volume went down, here… Tha beat sounds nice, includin’ tha catchy hook you deliverin’; diggin’ it! Tha 1st verse’s soundin’ good; sounds like random rhymes, here… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice and random, too… My Rating: 3.9

18. “24 Hours (Remix)” feat. Bobby Shmurda, TeeFlii & Ty Dolla $ign
Must be a remix? >>> Yeah, it iz… Even though I ain’t neva played it, it’s still that great music—tha last full year of music (2014) that my brother was still alive… It’s okay, like tha original; you & Shmurda sound nice fa an appearance… My Rating: 3.7

Overall: I fuck wit this shit tough! Dope shit, Rowdy!! You kept it consistent to tha max, here! No fillers, just quality, trap-rap, East Coast rap!! Keep up tha great work; neva stop this rap shit!!
