Review #1,520: Ice Mike "True 2 Da Game!"

Reviewed on 9.20.2016 (Review #1,520)

Well, work sucked today, of course! Thought it was gonna throw off my grind with my Louisiana Reviewz Marathon? Well, it ain’t do dat!! Gonna continue it, whether or not some1 wants to talk shit to me, or we are only five people workin’! This next one’s from 1992: Ice Mike True 2 Da Game!, off C&M Records & Yo! Records! Start Time: 1:55 PM | End Time: 2:53 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 sound like anything too mainstream for me, 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. Excuse Me World I’m Ice Mike
Yessir! >>> Nice lil’ intro; felt good ta get inta tha “G” world… My Rating: N/A

02. “Ain’t Dat A Bitch”
>>> Nice intro with tha Ice Cube-like sample shit goin’ on, here, in tha beginning… Here you are on tha 1st verse, comin’ through, bringin’ dat shit fa tha hood… Nice job wit tha 1st verse, layin’ it down fa tha streetz! Only one verse, here? Well, then, pretty-good, overall… Nice outro about tha “cop;” that’s right! How he “get off, just ‘cause he have a badge?” It’s sad when peoples’ powers let them do whateva they want, even when it’s wrong? I’m a Shift Leader at my job and why do people try and take advantage of my power? Fuckers!! Haters at my job!! They jealous!! My Rating: 4.2

03. “Flow Down”
>>> Nice lil’ skit, layin’ down tha fuckery, lol… My Rating: N/A

04. “Unoucantakdisdik”
Lol… Tha beat’s real simple, here; almost sounds like what Aaliyah & DMX sampled with “Back In One Peace” with tha bassline, here… That’s tha main catch fa me with tha beat, as tha rest sounds plain… I see you did tha production on this whole entire joint, except #15… Tha 1st verse was nice ta hear with this fuckery—yeah, I italicized “fuck,”  lol. Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice, as you’re keepin’ it “G” fa these bitches, as always… My Rating: 4.3

05. “Johnny”
>>> A slower vibe, here, comin’ through wit a story about this “Johnny.” How about, I have a “Johnny” who’s my plug; gotta love him! Yup, gotta luv tha “joyride!” Ain’t nothin’ like them rides with tha best music!! Great job with this verse about this “Johnny” dude! SMH @ tha outro: “Who cares! I hate black people, anyway!” Whoever that was on tha sample should get merked, like you said! Glad I show a lotta luv ta tha blacks! I see white people all tha time, so I’m already accepted by them. I gotta make tha extra travels and moves fa my blacks, as I don’t see ‘em too often. I’m glad to be loved by everyone! My Rating: 4.4

06. “Rollin’ On Daytons”
>>> Got a lil’ Eazy-E/NWA feel to it as we “cruisin’ down tha street” wit this sample; good shit… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice ta hear; you got this shit on lock… Tha 2nd verse almost sounds like a feature, tho none’s listed… A lil’ bit of Eazy in tha background, too… He was actually alive, at this time, as we can’t forget! Even a shout out ta tha “Bally Boyz,” here, as I know who they are. My Rating: 4.0

07. “No Fuck-Ups”
Wish that was like that at my job, but that’s err-day!! >>> A faster beat, here; let’s see how this gon go… Kinda cheesy fa me wit this fast vibe… I think I like you betta more wit tha gangsta shit than tha shit you can jam in tha clubs to… Still, that’s some nice mixin’ and scratchin’ right after tha verse… My Rating: 3.6

08. 1-900-Hoe-Line
>>> Nice lil’ beat and tha “hoe-line”’s like an argument, here, lol… My Rating: N/A

½time: A nice lil’ tape, so far; you got this! A 4.1-rated CD/tape, currently; good job, Mike! You legendary! Props fa all your content!

09. “Fnalluslipnikkashoes”
Nice! >>> Sounds like a West Coast vibe, here, almost with that Aaliyah & DMX beat sample, again, in tha bassline; nice… Tha 1st verse straight; almost doesn’t sound like you ta me, at times… Tha hook sounds catchy with this beat; not too bad, overall… Tha 2nd verse’s pretty good; you know how ta handle “these hoes!” Tha 3rd verse ain’t too bad; “sendin’ pictures” at this time, lol? Photographin’! Nice orgasm from tha hoe at tha end! My Rating: 4.0

10. Here Smoke This
Yeah! Can’t wait fa my shmoke, afta this review! Anxiety hike!! >>> Nice beat; nice vibe… More of a skit but a lil’ chatter at tha end, here… My Rating: N/A

11. “Da Mack Game”
>>> Nice and anthemic on tha hook, here; nice beat, too! I think I’m diggin’ this uptempo vibe from you, here! Gotta have “tha weed!” Definitely feelin’ this anthemic vibe from you, here; nice and consistent! My Rating: 4.4

12. “Bring Da Heat”
>>> Nice beat; not bad with this song, overall… Feelin’ “da heat” you bringin’ to tha table on tha 1st verse, here, regularly rhymin’… “Once upon a time, when I was only 18…” It was 1992! Must’ve been born before 1974, it seems like? I don’t think I remember your birthday, but you’re definitely one of tha OGz! I think you ’70 or somethin’? I remember interviewin’ you and you had ta have been around tha 40 range or somethin’… But, props fa keepin’ it “G” this whole entire time! My Rating: 3.9

13. “Rekcilkcid”
>>> Beat sounds decent and so does your rappin’ on tha 1st verse… Wow, 7:07 on tha length? What we doin’ wit all this? Let’s see if it can hold up, despite it bein’ decent… “When I’m on a date, I treat a bitch like trash;” gah-bage!! Oh, I ain’t realize tha title’s actually said backwards! It says, “Dick licker,” spelled “D-I-C-K-L-I-C-K-E-R,” but tha title’s spelled “R-E-K-C-I-L-K-C-I-D”, lol… Nice job wit tha hook and you’re keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 2nd verse, gritty and dirty, lol! I like tha “Crazy! You must be crazy!” shit around 3:38! Lol @ 4:24: “It’s like you takin’ one long, good piss;” nice! “I was playin’ wit tha clitoris…;” lol, sounded funny when you said dat! Neva really hear “clit” in rap music, nor tha full name! Well, you kept it interestin’ tha whole way through and ain’t bore me! My Rating: 4.2

14. “Man-N-Da Hole”
>>> “Two niggaz, chillin’ in tha shade…” Sounds like it gon be a hot day with tha weather; lookin’ forward ta hearin’ this… Some action goin’ on with tha sirens, here… Kinda sounds like a random joint, overall… Tha 2nd verse sounds a lil’ catchy with tha punchlines, here; nice hood lyrics… My Rating: 3.5

15. “Yo Pussy Stank”
Sure.…! DJ LowDown did this beat… >>> Sounds catchier with DJ LowDown’s production, here; nice change-up! Tha hook’s pretty catchy wit you rappin’ ova some1 else’s production… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like you’re on top of tha undaground scene, here! Hearin’ tha beat sounds and, I swear, it sounds like tha Aaliyah & DMX sample, again! That’s tha catchy tune throughout this tape, even tho this tape was eight years before! Lol @ “Bust-A-Nut Heaven;” what a “Heaven,” lol! Nice job wit tha 2nd verse and now, let’s see what we got goin’ on fa tha 3rd verse… Pretty short, but sweet; nice! Nice chant fa tha breakdown on tha outro! “It’s hot in here! There must be a pussy in tha atmosphere…;” nice! My Rating: 4.3

16. “Good 2 U”
>>> Nice lil’ ‘90s uptempo beat ta start this off, as well as this random female vocalist on tha hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and I’m diggin’ this uptempo vibe of yours, this time! Will it be able ta last 6:13, tho? You almost sound like a euro-dance rapper on tha vocals, this time, lol… Or, Heavy D! Tha 2nd verse brings that good vibe like tha 1st verse, too! Even a lil’ ‘90s dance-like beat sound, too, around 2:18! Nice breakdown, too! A lil’ dancin’, a lil’ rap vibe, and orgasms! Tha rest of this was kinda repetitive, but also kept tha vibe goin’. I believe it’s a good lil’ ending fa a breakdown fa tha end of this tape… My Rating: 4.2

17. “Atdasamtyme”
>>> Sounds like a nice outro with tha beat goin’ on, here… Yeah, nice job with you shoutin’ err-body out. Lookin’ forward ta hearin’ my shout out in tha future! Real shit @ tha outro: “I neva know when I’mma die,” as well as tha “moment of silence” ta end tha tape off! Nice!! My Rating: N/A

Overall: I thought this tape went over well. I was feelin’ tha kinds of stories you had ta tell, here; good shit! Nice production throughout this, too, as well as all those anthems fa tha hoes! Plenty more from you in my Louisiana Reviewz Marathon, so I’ll be on tha lookout fa dat!!
