Review #1,573: Gunna & Big Blaze "B.O.B. (Bars Over Bullshit)"

Reviewed on 10.22.2016 (Review #1,573)

Let’s see if I can get into some reviewz, before somethin’ else comes and distracts me… Tha Mob & Gwen Records iz presentin’ this one, from ’14: Gunna & Big Blaze B.O.B. (Bars Over Bullshit); leggo… Start Time: 4:17 PM | End Time: 10:02 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. “Intro”
>>> Likin’ how tha beat sounds, here… Likin’ how you’re anti-“Stanky Legg” and all that bullshit on tha 1st verse, Blaze! Feelin’ how you comin’ through on this, here… Yeah, fuck tha “trap-rap,” and, as of now, fuck tha mumblin’ shit that’s out, now! It makes snap-rap seem like quality throwback music, smh! And, we got Gunna on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some decent rhymes… It’s good ta have him flow through on this, even tho Blaze sounds betta than him… And, an outro with 1:21 on tha length, here… SMH fa mentionin’ “jigg” music on tha outro, Gunna… I’ll take that before ANY—ANY day of work!!! Hell, I hear that jigg shit after a horrible day of work/yelling/uncomfortable employees/management & I go fuckin’ nuts, wishin’ for tha past back! My Rating: 4.4

02. “B.O.B.”
This one ain’t loadin’… Only 13 of 19 of ‘em downloaded, so I gon have to skip tha non-working ones… My Rating: N/A

03. “Let Me Thru”
Here comes a Blaze solo; let’s see… >>> Way before work: ’04, a whole decade before, here, with “Let Me In”, lol… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice. I like how you have a club vibe in tha lyrics, here… Hook sounds nice, but can you imagine it on an original beat? Tha 2nd verse kinda yada-yada wit a bunch of random shit goin’ on, fa me… I’ono, but I felt like I liked tha 1st verse betta… Uh, Baton Rouge’s 50 Cent on tha outro, here? Sounds like you was gone off somethin’, lol… My Rating: 3.8

04. “Move Out The Way”
A Gunna solo song, but it doesn’t work… My Rating: N/A

05. “Money On My Mind”
>>> This sounds decent fa a start, here, with Gunna in tha beginning; decent hook… Funny how it’s a song about “money”—tha worst topic fa rap, fa me, which y’all should throw in wit y’all “Stanky Legg” and that shit content! With that bein’ said, it’s soundin’ decent wit Gunna on tha 1st verse, here… I seem like I’m interested, but I’m really lackin’ it… Hearin’ Blaze on tha 2nd verse and it sounds betta than tha below-average feelings I had in tha beginning… Just feelin’ how Blaze comin’ through wit his flow… My Rating: 3.1

06. “My Life”
A Gunna solo track… Oh, and, surprisingly, guess we need tha jigg music back ‘cause I just got texted ta go back inta work in a half-hour, despite workin’ 4 AM – 11 AM this morning! >>> Feelin’ how this sounds in tha beginning; nice hook, here, with tha simple vibe… Good shit goin’ on wit tha 1st verse, here, soundin’ nice… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice fa a rap song, once again… I haven’t found a special feeling for a 4.0 rating, yet, except for tha intro track, tho… My Rating: 3.7

07. “Get It In”
>>> A decent start; not really feelin’ tha lyrics in tha beginning with this hook… Hearin’ Gunna on tha 1st verse and it’s decent, even tho I like tha hook betta, smh? Sounds betta wit Blaze, here, wit a 101 on needin’ ta hustle… Gotta feel how Blaze comes through wit tha consistent rhymes and lyrics, here; undeniable! Either way, it turned out ta be decent fa me, overall… My Rating: 3.6

08. “Smash Somethin’”
A Big Blaze solo song, but it don’t work, neither… My Rating: N/A

09. “My Nigga”
>>> Here we go wit this beat—or, should I say, remade, a lil’? Like, lower quality? Hook sounds good fa a “My Nigga” remake, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse from Blaze and it’s soundin’ great wit this gangsta shit fa tha Rouge; gotta feel it! And, Gunna on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some decent shit, here… My Rating: 3.6

½time: Well, at 4:39 PM on Saturday, October 22, 2016, I gon have to pause this review fa now… So far, we’re at a 3.7 fa tha CD rating. Even tho I feel how Big Blaze comes through wit his rhymes, Gunna decent and I’m not that crazy about reviewin’ jacked-beat music. Still, not bad, right? 2morrow, I gotta work in tha morning and then, I’m takin’ a chick wit me to see this 49-year-old chick I used ta work with, who I really get my shmoke on with, in Upstate NY; can’t wait!! I’ll resume this when I get off this shift I finna take… *Eats dinner and goes to work…, again…!* *Returns exactly five hours later at 9:39 PM…*

10. “Freestyle”
>>> Hearin’ Gunna on tha 1st verse and it’s aight ova this decent beat… Kinda reminds me of them online beats or somethin’, when I used ta review those random rappers I’d find on DatPiff or somethin’… Hearin’ Blaze on tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ betta; can dig it… Nice job wit tha rhymes, Blaze… My Rating: 3.3

11. “Dumb”
Here comes Blaze… >>> This sounds more like my style, with tha nice production and err-thang… Nice job wit tha simple hook and tha verse from Blaze sounds nice, here… Gotta dig tha consistent rhymes and tha club vibe, of course! My Rating: 4.2

12. “Name In Yo Mouth (Pt. 2)” feat. Alvin Ray
A feature! >>> Anotha one that sounds nice ta hear… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice with tha energy, of course! Blaze holdin’ tha hook down, as well as how tha 1st verse’s soundin’, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse from Gunna and it’s decent fa this original track… And, we got tha 3rd verse from Alvin Ray, comin’ through wit a nice voice and okay rhymes, here; flowin’ nicely… My Rating: 4.3

13. “My Reality”
Can Gunna handle it by himself? >>> Kinda likin’ how Gunna rappin’ off this beat, here… I like how it’s about tha “mama,” even tho I’m usually not crazy about these kinda songs “from tha heart.” My Rating: 3.9

14. “48 Bars Of Fire”
Blaze solo! >>> Funny ‘cause hearin’ Big Blaze rap reminds me of this dude, Yung Yola (n.k.a. Yola No Soda) with tha voice. I used to be so obsessed wit him and gave him so many chances with thinkin’ he had shit goin’ on/was “busy.” However, it broke my heart when I found out tha “busy” shit was false and he neva made me important. I’ono what was up but I called him out on it earlier this year and he deleted me; bullshit! No need to release CDs and not tell me/wait for me to find it months later! What kinda passion dat iz?! But yeah, this beat ehh ta rap off… Tha rhymes are pretty nice and consistent, even tho this ehh for a track, itself… My Rating: 3.4

15. “Bet Dat Up”
Blaze solo; doesn’t work… My Rating: N/A

16. “What I Feel”
Gunna, again… >>> Not too crazy about this slow vibe…; decent rappin’, here… My Rating: 3.0

17. “Don’t Know”
>>> I like how Blaze comin’ through on this wit a decent beat, here, fa tha 1st verse… Tha hook sounds a lil’ catchy, even tho I kinda cringe when I hear Blaze holdin’ notes, like he singin’, lol… Now, we got Gunna on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some regular-soundin’ raps… My Rating: 3.7

18. “Hood Hop”
Lol, after all these titles, I’ve come to realize this a throwback one, like, ’04 throwback… Either way, it don’t work, smh. My Rating: N/A

19. “Love” feat. Anonomus
Doesn’t work… My Rating: N/A

Overall: Even tho I couldn’t hear each track, from what I counted, it turned out ta be an okay release… Most of tha tracks were decent, as it was just rhymes… I mainly fucks wit Big Blaze and how he sounds, vs. Gunna’s decent efforts… Either way, great job. Now, after two shifts, I gotta go hit tha bed. I gotta open 4:00 – 11:00 AM 2morrow & then, a 2 ¾-hour drive to Upstate NY to party & then, I gotta drive back later on! Busy day 2morrow! Got anotha Blaze review comin’ up but I’ono how many dayz it gon be till I get to it… And, to add, Tracks 1, 4, 8, 9, 14 & 17 were produced by Big Blaze, while #11 was produced by $hop With Ken. I forgot to look at tha back cover while doin’ tha review!
