Review #1,559: MC Nero Baby "I Gotta Lotta Respect"

Reviewed on 10.01.2016 (Review #1,559)

What a horrible day at work, today! So fuckin’ stressful!! Unfortunately, it’s knockin’ my consistency down a lil’, for now, since I gotta battle my anxiety… Still, I’ll leave ya with one review! Of course, it and tha next one (which I’m doin’ 2morrow) had to be a long review!! I’m only doin’ this one today & takin’ it easy… It’s MC Nero Baby I Gotta Lotta Respect, released in 1996 on Slimpicket Records. MC Nero Baby’s one of Baton Rouge’s earliest pioneers, as well… Happy Birthday to my dawg, Johnny Hustle!! Start Time: 5:08 PM | End Time: 10:39 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!

Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice ta hear; consistency at its finest!! Luv this vibe!!! Tha 2nd verse flowin’ nicely, here!

16. “Im’a Break U Off Somethin’” feat. Dirty D & Whisper
Iz it me, or I felt like a lotta tha titles seemed odd, in ways, with tha apostrophes? Either way, crazy hook; what a growlin’ dude you iz!!! Tha 1st verse’s so nuts with your crazy rhymes!!! That voice!!! Excellent with tha 2nd verse, here; can’t deny it!! Tha 3rd verse sounds like a Mystikal, holdin’ tha ‘90s down! Such excellent, not-so-known features you got, here!! Tha 4th verse’s just like you & a young Mystikal mixed together!! Excellent job, y’all! You’re just keepin’ tha title rattlin’ off ya tongue on tha last minute, lol! Then, more rhymes!!
