Review #1,534: Flesh & Blood "Flesh & Blood"

Reviewed on 9.23.2016 (Review #1,534)

Here comes anotha one… Oh, I don’t wanna go ta sleep and get up fa work on a Saturday, already! My legs are all outta it, sadly… Flesh & Blood Flesh & Blood’s my next review, released in 1994 on Take Fo Reecords! Start Time: 7:26 PM | End Time: 7:56 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. “Shout In”
>>> Sounds like some nice shit fa tha hood, here; good beat and nice hook! “Be on tha lookout!” Here’s tha verse and it sounds great with these lyrics! Yeah, ya neva know when your last day iz! My Rating: 4.2

02. “On The Map”
A long joint; let’s hear it… >>> A simple beat start, here… Sounds nice “on” tha hook wit tha representin’ of tha wards/hoods, here… Some of tha vocals sound like a regular-soundin’ artist, here, with tha chantin’ before tha 1st verse, instead of a Louisiana-soundin’ artist… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and we’re really rollin’ tha rhymes off our tongue, here! Tha 2nd verse sounds good wit how y’all representin’ fa dis “house party.” Even tho it’s cheesy as fuck, I have ta admit, I kinda like all tha “[this one]’s sorry; so sorry…” shit, lol. My Rating: 4.0

03. “Rest In Peace”
ROFL, 7:55 on tha length! I know I played this on my radio show… >>> That quiet start but still eerie in tha background, so that’s wassup… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and yeah, can’t believe people die! Tha hook’s simple but I like how it has a bounce-influenced tone in tha flow… Tha 2nd verse sounds good; I can feel tha mood! It sux when some1 dies; tha world’s too different! Tha 3rd verse sounds a lil’ calmer… Not much ta say; I’m only ½ way through this track! Rhymes are pretty nice on tha 4th verse, here… My Rating: 3.7

½time: Sounds like a nice release, so far; y’all holdin’ down tha hood! A 4.0-rated release, so far…

04. “Mob On A Mission”
A bunch of tracks over five minutes long, on here! >>> Nice energy in this hood track; great hook! Tha 1st verse sounds great ta hear; gotta do what ya gotta do! “I got so much, I could bust like a nut;” crazy start ta tha 2nd verse, lol! Great shit! Tha 3rd verse has this track pumpin’ blood; feelin’ tha energy, once again! Wow, rhymes are really crazy around tha 3:20 mark!! Consistency!! Tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse sounds good ta continue it, too… I’ve always liked that, “Leave ‘em dead,” part in tha background, on tha hook… My Rating: 4.4

05. “What’s Up With The Mic?”
Anotha long one; let’s see, here… >>> Sounds decent fa tha start; y’all energetic, as always! Ain’t expect tha 1st verse after tha hook, right away; sounds like y’all really far away from “the mic!” So, my question iz, “What’s Up With The Mic?,” like tha title, lol?! Yeah, this far-away-from-“the-mic” shit’s a lil’ distracting and kinda bores me… Yeah, I’m just listenin’ to pure air or somethin’, here… My Rating: 3.2

06. Shout Out
Let’s hear it! OMG, it’s not over five minutes long, lol! >>> Good “shout” outs ova this beat… My Rating: N/A

Overall: A lotta these jointz were long on here, but it still turned out ta be a nice release… Great job wit tha energy, guys!
