Review #1,533: DJ Jimi "I'm Back! I'm Back!"

Reviewed on 9.23.2016 (Review #1,533)

Next up in my Louisiana Reviewz Marathon, we got DJ Jimi I’m Back! I’m Back!, released in 1994 on Avenue Distribution & Soulin’ Records. Start Time: 5:13 PM | End Time: 6:13 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!

Link To CD: N/A

01. Inhale
>>> Decent start ta intro this thang off… My Rating: N/A

02. “Still Goin’ On”
That’s right! >>> Diggin’ tha hook; luv how you say some of tha words with your tongue, lol (“tha niggity-niggity-nigga”). Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds catchy; reminds me of Ricky B or someone with tha voice, here… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice wit this gangsta shit and these “shots.” Even a shout out ta “KLC,” too. Tha 3rd verse’s nice, too; diggin’ how “you see nothin’ but golds” when you “smile!” My Rating: 4.0

03. “Swing”
I remember this title; played on my radio show, I believe. >>> A nice lil’ fast start and a bounce vibe, here, of course! Tha hook’s pretty catchy wit how tha “ass” swingin’! Good shit goin’ on wit tha verses, here, jammin’ out! Then, after tha first two verses, there’s a lil’ bit of chantin’ goin’ on wit tha “ooh ooh, ooh, ooh!” My Rating: 4.2

04. “Bonus Beat”
>>> Nice! I’ll count it as a rating ‘cause it’s a “bonus beat,” lol. My Rating: 4.3

05. Titties, Tongues & Dicks
ROFL?! >>> Funny; good shit, lol… Imagine if this was a song?! My Rating: N/A

06. “Hoz Ain’t Nut’n But Hoz”
True… >>> Beat sounds nice and this vibe sounds like a nice, ‘90s-like, West Coast-type vibe, here… Tha hook sounds nice; good shit with this title… Tha 1st verse soundin’ like a regularly-delivered verse; good job… Tha 2nd verse soundin’ good ta hear, too… Tha 3rd verse ain’t too bad, here; a decent track, overall… My Rating: 3.7

07. “Jivin’”
>>> Sounds like random rappin’ in tha beginning? Decent… Not really feelin’ this randomly-rapped flow and tha beat’s just decent fa me… Tha hook ain’t too bad when you say tha title and then, tha beat plays fa a lil’… “Born March 26, 1975;” oh, God! My manager’s birthday, lol! I thought you were a lil’ older than that? November 26 ya b-day; maybe, I heard wrong, lol? Must have my job on my brain too much! My Rating: 3.0

08. “Sumt’in Missing”
>>> A longer track (5:49) but I’m feelin’ this ‘90s vibe… Tha beat sounds nice ta hear, somethin’ that TLC would rap on! Also, tha singin’ on tha hook’s nice! Tha 1st verse sounds pretty nice ta hear; you doin’ a nice job… Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty nice ta hear, too; you rollin’ tha rhymes off ya tongue! Tha 3rd verse sounds good ta hear, too; what else can I say? It’s a West Coast thang, right now! And, a nice lil’ outro, here… My Rating: 4.1

09. “Krooked Kops”
Likin’ tha “K”z! >>> Diggin’ tha eerie beat start; definitely a nice beat! It’s all about tha south! Tha 1st verse sounds nice wit these rhymes; good goin’… Tha hook sounds nice; it’s an anthem but at tha same time, ya watchin’ fa tha “krooked kops!” Tha 2nd verse sounds pretty good, too; nothin’ much ta say wit these verses, sometimes… My Rating: 4.3

½time: Mostly decent tracks but at tha same time, quality! Good job wit your street shit, Jimi! A 3.9-rated release, so far…

10. “Yeah (Fuckin’ Right)”
A long track, here (6:07)… >>> Sounds like a nice lil’ bounce/gangsta track, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I’m diggin’ tha drug-related shit wit tha “flippin’ keys;” representin’! Tha hook sounds pretty nice, here… Lots of chantin’ of “yeah” on tha hook, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds good ta hear… ‘Preciate your braveness! I went explorin’ at an abandoned sanatarium in tha dark, last night & tha two people I was with were scared! They were black & from Brooklyn! How they scared? Oh wait, they were only 19 & 16? I’ono… Tha rest of this shit ain’t too bad; it continues and continues… My Rating: 3.9

11. “A Little Sumt’in Sumt’in”
>>> A good bounce vibe and how you’re handlin’ tha hook… I prolly won’t say much, as usual; it’s just a good bounce vibe. Not really sure if I can feel tha “eeny, meany, miny, mo,” or howeva you spell that shit… My Rating: 3.8

12. “Must Be The Music”
Anotha really long one… >>> This has a good club vibe ta it… I’m diggin’ “the music,” as well as tha singin’ on tha hook; nicely done! Feelin’ tha female that joins in on tha hook, too! Nice how you sound on tha 1st verse; you in a singin’-rappin’ zone! Not much rappin’ parts, at times, and a lotta “music,” here… “You listen to tha man that’s Ice Mike that’s makin’ tha beat;” really, it’s him? Ain’t expect him ta jam like this, but this bitch nice! My Rating: 4.2

13. Big Bird
A skit? >>> Lol @ this with tha “yum yum;” props fa anotha skit! My Rating: N/A

14. “Nigga Rigged”
Only 2:07 on tha length, this time? Guess we’re progressin’ faster? >>> Diggin’ how you sound, here; beat’s pretty nice, too… Sounds like a Jubilee-like song? “Oink, baby, oink,” lol! My Rating: 4.1

15. “Yeah (Instrumental)”
An instrumental? A long one, too (6:01)! >>> Nice job, of course; jammin’! Six minutes of bounce’s finest! My Rating: 4.4

16. Exhale
! >>> Not bad… I thought it was mainly to “exhale” shmoke or somethin’… My Rating: N/A

17. “Something’s Missing”
>>> Beat sounds nice fa tha start, here… Tha hook’s catchy; feelin’ tha singin’… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you holdin’ it down, here… Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too; jammin’, West Coast style! Not bad with tha 3rd verse, too; can’t complain… EDIT: Wow, I rated this two times by mistake! See #08 fa tha review!

18. “Still Goin’ On”
Yeah! >>> Kinda sounds similar ta #02? I won’t count it; I’ll just consider it a repeat… See #2 fa tha review!

19. “A Little Sumt’in Sumt’in (Radio)”
A radio version ta end dis off… See #11 fa tha review!

Overall: I thought this was a pretty good release… Sometimes, it seemed kinda long and okay, at times, but for tha most part, you pulled through. Props fa all tha tracks!
