Review #1,516: Level "Club Banga King 3"

Reviewed on 8.03.2016 (Review #1,516)

Got anotha brand-new review for ya, here! This one just got released today off of Mayham Entertainment & I’m anticipated ta hear it!! We got Level Club Banga King 3!! Tha 3rd Club Banga King disc!! Level always be holdin’ it down with tha energy, club bangaz and bein’ one of tha best dudes from BR! So, it’s only right that I go and buy this ta support him! Make sure y’all do, too!! I’m expectin’ a lotta high-rated songs, of course!! Start Time: 8:03 PM | End Time: 9:35 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!

© 2016 CD Review (Review #1,516) reviewed on 8.03.2016 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Down In BR”
Can’t wait ta hear this CD!! Just got fulla dat shit for it!!! Retwaded!!! Only 2:18 on tha length?! ½ intro, ½ fiya track?! >>> Oh, I get it! “Down In The DM” beat; here we go… Haven’t heard a Jackin’ 4 Beats-rappin’ Level in a long while! Seems like this refreshin’, despite this bein’ a jacked-beat joint! Gotta feel how you comin’ through wit tha flow, here!! ROFL @ tha instant, “Nigga, what?!?,” on tha hook; crazy!! At least you don’t make this boring by havin’ your “Baton Rouge” flow on this bitch! Nice job wit tha 1st verse, of course; can’t deny it!! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ great; can’t believe you have that big tattoo on your face! Level has leveled up, lol! My Rating: 4.3

02. “MC Hammer (Remix)” feat. Foxx & Hurricane Chris
Ooh, can’t wait ta hear this crazy club banga!! I gon need a drank fa this one—water, that iz! Mouse On Tha Track on tha production and look at tha crazy lineup fa tha features!!! >>> Still soundin’ pulsatin’!! Crazy wit tha “hard like a ma’fucka!!” Yeah, Level, “I’m shmokin’ on tha best weed,” straight from tha 1st verse!! Who ain’t?! So fuckin’ jammin’, here; undeniable!! You really holdin’ it down on tha verse wit your flow; you’re one of tha best!! So fuckin’ crazy; can’t say it enough!! Holy, fuckin’ charged-up Foxx on tha 2nd verse, really holdin’ it down, here!! So fuckin’ hyped up!! This iz why I have all tha kinds of energy I have and neva back down from a challege!! It’s y’all; y’all give me this energy!! That’s why, I’ll always support y’all!!! Keepin’ it goin’ wit Chris on tha 3rd verse, here, comin’ through wit some regular-soundin’ Chris shit… Good fa this, even tho you & Foxx really held it down!! Still, Hurricane Chris on a really-dope remix!! My Rating: 5.0 (***GENEROUS RATING!!!***))

03. “All Da Above” feat. J Trax
Likin’ tha title a lot, especially since that’s how I feel when I’m a celebrity!! “All da” damn tyme!! J Trax on tha feature and production, here; leggo!! >>> Really feelin’ tha creepy-kinda beat intro, here! Hook’s definitely catchy, here; nice shit! Here you come on tha 1st verse, strictly “purple;” you know!! “28 and I been grown;” can’t believe I’m “28,” Level! First heard you when I was 19; what’s goin’ on, here?! Can’t wait ta meet you in tha future! I’m tryna touch down for tha 1st time in tha Boot/Baton Rouge sometime next year; gotta believe in my dreams!! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ pretty nice; your voice sounds grown, lol! Good shit; definitely feelin’ how you comin’ through on this as a celebrity! Beat pretty nice, too, combinin’ witchu! My Rating: 4.4

04. “Screaming” feat. Racked-Up Ready
Got Mr. RRR on tha feature, here; who would’ve thought he’d be gone?! Q-Red on tha beat!! Fuck yeah!!! >>> Definitely some crazy shit wit tha beginning beat, here! Oh, a Ready sample! This tha 1st time I’m hearin’ a Ready-sampled song! Good start ta be sampled; I think I can fuck wit these Ready-sampled tracks! Beat’s definitely on-n-poppin’ and Q-Red a legend!!! Here you are on tha 1st verse, Level, comin’ through wit “dat 9mm!” Who would’ve thought I’d have one ta me just weeks before I first heard you?! On January 23, 2008, it was one of my first hangouts outside of school/college, and some white dude pulled out a 9mm on me when I went to their apartment, for tha 2nd time. They were like, “You like this?” I said, “No! Get it away from me!” Then, he was like, “Fine; I’ll neva do it again!” He has an obsession wit gunz! You doin’ ya thang on tha 1st verse, here; dumb shit!! Ooh, a Ready verse fa tha 2nd verse; thought it was just gon be a sample!! Sounds pretty nice; I’m feelin’ this! Doesn’t sound too sellout-y for me! My Rating: 4.8

05. “Drop It Like It Burn” feat. Ace
Only know one Ace, and that’s Ace from Gardere, mainly known for his feature on “Hood Song (Dat Lane)” & from BluBlack’s CDs! We got Ken on tha beat; can’t wait ta see—hear what I gon hear, here!! >>> Bet it gon be a jammin’ joint, here; definitely feelin’ tha vibe! Here you are in tha beginning and you got this jammin’ shit on lock; can’t deny it!! “Tell me what you need!” Yeah, I agree! Any chick I hang out wit, I always buy them shit—I always pay for “it!!” Tha hook sounds real jammin’; holy, fuck, lol!! Oh-fuckin’-boy!! Shit sounds so excellent while fulla dat shit!! Oh, this Ace a female, here? Not bad; sounds like a Da Brat vs. Iggy Azalea, lol! That’s just my 1st reaction, but definitely a plus here fa a female!! Long, extended hook ta end this off! Perfect fa while you’re fulla dat shit!! It feels like it neva ends!! My Rating: 4.9

06. “Street Niggaz” feat. Max Minelli & C-Loc
Ooh, almost thought it was a repeat song from Big Scoob’s new CD, Back 2 Da Streets! His nephew, Koon On Da Beat’s on tha beat, and it threw me off, lol! So, my anticipation’s pretty high, with these legends on tha feature!! >>> “Yeah!!!” Here we fuckin’ go!!! Jammin’, anticipatin’ beat start like it was a Big Scoob track!! Yeah, tha hook’s definitely fuckin’ tight!! Sounds like classic-soundin’ shit from you wit how you deliverin’ it! Of course, you holdin’ down tha 1st verse, here; definitely sick!!! Got Max comin’ through on tha 2nd verse, soundin’ like he even more evolved, like, level-up even further in tha streetz! And, Loc on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through like it’s ageless Baton Rouge music! Of course, gotta respect it at all times!! My Rating: 4.6

07. “Independent Swagg” feat. Juvenile
Think I might’ve heard from somewhere else? Either way, I gon treat this like a new review! Rodnae Da Boss doin’ tha beat! >>> Sounds, like, really exciting fa a Rodnae production and this hot 27-second beat intro! LOL @ tha hook; nice job, Level! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice; you feelin’ tha vibe fa these “be-otch-ez!!” Great/dumb shit!! Hearin’ Juvie on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through really fast; can’t deny it!! Classic-soundin’ shit! Classic wit how you breakin’ down tha bridge/3rd verse, Level!! So fuckin’ classic!! My Rating: 4.6

08. “Don’t Give A Fuck” feat. Skip
Lookin’ forward ta dis Q-Red production!! >>> That’s a lotta tags in tha beginning… Oh, I’m feelin’ how you deliverin’ this hook; definitely some dope shit! Luv your celebrity vibe!! Instant transition to tha 1st verse from you, here, continuin’ tha crazy-catchy vibe!! And now, transitionin’ to Skip on tha 2nd verse, slowin’ down tha flow by quite tha amount, lol! Still, an interestin’ combination! My Rating: 4.7

½time: And, whataya know? Anotha critically-acclaimed CD I’m reviewin’!! A whoppin’ 4.7 for tha CD rating!! Talk about constant bangaz!! Tha Club Banga King you are, Level!! Of course, A+ production, A+ vibez, A+ features, A+ deliveries, A+ hooks, A+ verses!!! Good shit!! Let’s keep it goin’!!!

09. “He Say, She Say” feat. B-Will & Big Poppa
Oh, I expect this ta be nuts, too, wit Mouse doin’ tha beat, once again!! >>> Yeah!! Mouse doin’ tha damn thang wit slammin’ these sounds!! Definitely jammin’ once it hits tha hook! Lol @ how you comin’ through on it, Level!! Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit some jammin’, crazy-soundin’ gangsta shit!! Definitely a jammin’-ass hook; you really got pure chemistry wit Mouse On Tha Track!! B-Will on tha 2nd verse, just spittin’ some good shit. It’s like a regular voice, which iz ehh, but tha rhymes help it out… LOL @ Poppa on tha 3rd verse, kickin’ it off wit, “Mannnnnnneeeeeeeee!” Nice/dumb!!! Kinda soundin’ like Cee-Lo Green, now that he’s evolved to 33 years-old! Poppa!! My Rating: 4.4

10. Skit
Bwahahaha! Ain’t expect a “skit,” lol! >>> What can be goin’ on…? Sounds like it’s samplin’ tha old dayz, in tha rain, old music, just vibin’ while it’s rainin’ out… My Rating: N/A

11. “Ms. Parker” feat. Mouse On Tha Track & Kango Slim
Ooh, during these great Heather times, there’s a new J Buc-produced track!!! Anticipatin’ this one!! Once again, from tha 225 to tha 504 wit tha features!! >>> Oh, this sounds mysterious on tha beat intro; fuckin’ lovin’ it!! Just gotta love weed!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeed!!!!! Tha hook’s real catchy from you, Level; dumb shit!! J Buc definitely got tha championship ratings comin’!!! Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit dat exciting shit ta hear; gotta luv it!! Luv how you said, “Shit yeah,” pretty fast; “shit yeah,” lol! Rofl @ Mouse on tha 2nd verse; what a crazy-soundin’ verse!! Just luv his flow—his delivery’s unbelievable!!! Even tho it’s Kango on tha 3rd verse, it really sounds like an actual sample. Like, lol, that’s what I thought it was, at first! Great shit; anotha interestin’ collaboration!! My Rating: 4.8

12. “Beat Up” feat. Tweeday & Thug Brothers
Can’t wait ta hear this crazy, hyped-up collaboration!! Koon doin’ anotha track fa you, Level!! Exciting!!! >>> What an intro—oh wait, a hook!! Volume sounds kinda quieter, here, but tha vibe’s here; that’s all that matters! Good shit comin’ from you on tha 1st verse, Level! Definitely feelin’ it! I remember when all these rappers I randomly discovered on MySpace, or discovered me (Tweeday). It’s like, who would’ve thought y’all would reach collaboration status?! Shit’s definitely on-n-poppin’ wit this energy from tha 2nd verse, here!! And, keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse, here, always not “hard ta find!” Always feelin’ tha dark beat vibe and how tha Thug Brothers hold it down on tha verse; definitely pure!! Y’all kept about 11 seconds of silence on this bitch, at tha end, lol; random… My Rating: 4.7

13. “Street Shit” feat. Spitta & G-Nate
Can’t wait ta hear this one, produced by EQ!! Anticipation at all timez!!! >>> Sounds like a serious beat intro; fuckin’ luvin’ this shit, right now!!! Excellent hook, here; luv how it sounds!! Definitely defines tha vibe/setting for tha streetz!! Here you are on tha 1st verse, Lev, comin’ through wit dat crazy “shit,” with those pure keys in tha background!! Such a fuckin’ jam, despite bein’ for tha streetz!! We got Spit on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit his usual; gotta feel it! Spit it like it iz, Spit!! Keepin’ it goin’ wit Nate on tha 3rd verse, comin’ through wit some great “street shit!” His voice kinda plain like B-Will, but it’s still nice ta have him as a collaborator! My Rating: 4.7

14. “I Know You Want It”
Ewe, no producer?! I can’t think of what this can be!! >>> Oh, an uncredited Koon on tha beat, here! Nice surprise! Beat sounds pretty nice, of course; definitely some pure street/club shit! Catchy hook, too; nice! Good shit wit tha 1st verse, here! Excellent flow and really layin’ it down in tha bed, once again! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and tha line, “Don’t kiss yo girl, my dick up in there,” that repeated literally reminded me of “Uptown Funk”, lol; sounds similar wit tha flow, lol. Nice job wit tha rest of this shit! My Rating: 4.3

15. “Paper Route” feat. B-Real & Ronnie Rap Game
Who’s Ronnie Rap Game, lol? OMG, right when they change tha way to bake at work, as well as me havin’ anxiety to get off on Percy Keith’s birthday (August 18), B-Real’s here! Even on tha beat! Oh, in my zone, too! I think I need to find food before I go inta this one!! *Finds something…* Aight, I’m back! Oh, B-Real, when will you reconnect wit me?! Just mailed my new CD off today to him, Big Wayne, his mom & their brother, Justin Dabney; hope they enjoy it! I also wrote a letter to B-Real & his mom, stating that we should reconnect, especially since tha one-year of my brother’s passing just passed. There’s no time left for beefin’! It’s been 2 ½ years; so much has happened in my life!! With that bein’ said, let’s do dis!!! >>> *Screams* “Fuck this!!!” Naw, when I say that, I feel funny! Shit’s so fuckin’ pure!! Gotta luv B-Real on tha hook!! He made me $52,000 richer!!! Tha money and status continuin’ ta rise wit me, thanx ta him!! He really got shit on lock!! He missin’ out on too many of my ventures, tho! But, anyway, here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit dat tight shit! Luvin’ tha rhymes and how you comin’ through wit how you deliver this shit! Definitely tha place ta be: Level’s life!! Think: I worked from 4 AM – 2 PM & 5 PM – 9 PM last Sunday! And, 4 AM – 2 PM & 7:40 PM – 12:18 AM this past Sunday! Where’d all that work ethic start from?! B-Real!!! Who would work 14.91 hours in a day?! Me!! Got Ronnie on tha 2nd verse and he sounds catchy on this, fa some1 I neva heard of, before! Good shit! Ooh, even more ta this! A 3rd verse! Must be a group? Sounds betta than tha 2nd verse; really feelin’ this fastness!! Gotta appreciate this while you can!! Just think of this luv: B-Real still has me blocked, but his “Turnt Up”’s chartin’ on my playlist, like, right now!! Why would I play some1 who can’t stand me?! It’s all about thinkin’ positive!!! My Rating: 4.9

16. “Bootin’”
Just like tha Boot, itself, you “bootin’!” I feel dat!! No producer listed & only 2:12 on tha length? >>> Sounds like it gon be excitin’!! Okay, Q-Red on tha beat! No producers listed ‘cause no features listed? I’ont get it, but definitely a surprise!! Feelin’ how you have tha energy on tha short hook, as well as this crazy 1st verse!! Lol @ tha line, “Middle fingaz up like, ‘Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!’!” Tha 2nd verse sounds jammin’ as fuck, too; undeniable!! Unbelievable!! My Rating: 4.5

17. “Still Jiggin’” feat. Da Jiggalaters
I’m like, “I know this was on two CDs;” how’d I hear two, already? Now, I realize! Big Scoob & Sam I Am! Now, Level!! Anyway, Q-Red on tha beat, here!! Almost thought that was him on tha pre-hook but it’s Sam I Am with you, Level, ya dig?! Ooh, you tearin’ up tha hook, here!! Really diggin’ tha “Roll On” shit from tha Big Tymers on tha sample, too!! And, we got you on tha 1st verse, comin’ through wit tha “pillz,” as you eat “‘em all at tha dinner table!” Yeah, Level!! “2016;” it’s official!!! Definitely a sick 1st verse ta vibe to at all times!! And, it’s wild, here, wit Sam I Am on tha 2nd verse!! He anotha dude I first heard on February 16—might’ve been 17th, 2008 ‘cause that review I done did, Big Jay’s Pyrex Radio Vol. 4: From Crumbz 2 Brickz, took me two dayz ta review ‘cause I was reviewin’ a CD a month, back then! Dope shit on tha 2nd verse, includin’ when I heard D-So & them do they thang, too! Definitely dope shit from Scoob on tha 3rd verse, here!! It’s all about bein’ tha most resistant and consistent!! Keepin’ this shit goin’ wit T-Lo on tha final part, here! Dumb shit, especially when two months ago, tha Jukebox Challenge featured my radio edit to T-Lo’s “All Day”, with my dog bark in tha beginning!! My Current Rating: 5.0

Overall: Wow!! Anotha critically acclaim review by ya boy, FrankieThaLuckyDog a.k.a. Frank Calhoune!! Level, you really turned up on this one!! So many potential singles on this bitch—pretty much err-thang!!! Your energy, your vibes, your deliveries, your songs, your hooks, your verses, your producers, your features, your… EVERYTHING!!! No wonder where I get all my energy from!! I just sent that Heather chick a video of me jammin’ to your “Hit Dat (Remix)” that I filmed of myself a few weeks ago, showin’ off where I get all my energy from!! You’re tha definition of energy, Level!! Tha most-energetic rapper of all-time fa me!!! Hope you continue ta be successful and neva give up on your dreams!!
