Review #1,556: Dolla "Divide & Conquer"

Reviewed on 9.30.2016 (Review #1,556)

Back wit tha reviewz, once again! This review’s Dolla Divide & Conquer, released in 1996 on Mass Variety Records. This was produced by Dolla & Justin “QT” Mance. This Dolla’s from New Orleans and iz not to be confused with tha slain rapper that was active from 2007 – 2009, best known for “Who The Fuck Is That?” with T-Pain & Tay Dizm. Start Time: 6:09 PM | End Time: 6:32 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!

03. “Divide & Conquer”
Title track… >>> Beat sounds a lil’ betta, here… Can this track hold up fa 5:50? Feelin’ tha laidback vibe fa tha beat and your rhymes on tha 1st verse; nice shit… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s cool with this unknown singer; can’t complain… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s keepin’ this story of tha hood comin’ along… Tha 3rd verse sounds good with your story, once again; nice… My Rating: 4.2

04. “Conduct Unbecoming”
>>> Anotha nice-soundin’ undaground beat, here, more on tha G-Funk side! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like you deliverin’ them nice rhymes fa tha streetz; good shit! Tha singin’ on tha hook between tha dude and tha chick has tha ‘90s written all over it, with tha vibe; good shit! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, here; can’t complain about this shit… And, tha 3rd verse keeps this shit goin’ and goin’… My Rating: 4.2

05. “Freestyle”
>>> Even if you “fuck up 20x,” it’s all good. Tha beat’s pretty much tha same as tha previous one, lol. Hearin’ this and it ain’t bad…; decent verse, freestylin’… Lol @ “funky-ass cunts;” neva hear “cunt” in rap music, so that’s a plus! My Rating: 3.9
