Review #1,558: K-Love "Gangsta's Prayer"

Reviewed on 9.30.2016 (Review #1,558)

Keepin’ this goin’ wit anotha review for today: K-Love Gangsta’s Prayer, released in 1996 on Zaleen Records & was produced by U-Set For Scratch Pro! Start Time: 7:42 PM | End Time: 7:51 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. “Gangsta’s Prayer”
Title track… >>> Feelin’ tha West Coast vibe in tha beginning… Here you are at “24;” I was “24” four years ago, which was a great life. I thought I was gon be a news reporter / photog-editor, which I’m still strivin’ for. However, they ain’t believe in me so I’m just at a minimum wage-payin’ job… “My 9 to 5 iz how I stay alive;” you nailed it! Nice job wit tha 1st verse, here, holdin’ shit down! Tha hook’s pretty nice; hood shit at its finest! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and you keepin’ it gangsta, here; can’t deny it! Tha 3rd verse’s kickin’ it off wit dem “gat” shots, here, strictly keepin’ it gangsta! Even tha “infrared!” My Rating: 4.1

02. “Something To Ride”
>>> “Something to ride to, to get high to;” nice hook!! Beat’s cool; diggin’ it… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it has a smooth, throwback Trae-like sound ta it, with tha voice… Now, it’s tha regular voice and it’s soundin’ aight… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s straight, too; can’t deny it… Tha 3rd verse sounds like a different dude, here, comin’ through wit some nice shit fa tha south… “You can be an ace but I’m a mothafuckin’ joker;” dope!! My Rating: 3.9

½time: A 4.0-rated release, so far; can’t deny it…

03. “Gangsta’s Prayer (Radio)”
