Review #1,574: Big Blaze "Solid Ground"

Reviewed on 10.24.2016 (Review #1,574)

Well, looks like I’m gettin’ to this sooner than I thought… I ain’t get ta go to tha chick’s house in Upstate NY, yesterday, after they had her workin’ overtime, smh… But, let’s just get this goin’. Today, however, I know I’m goin’ to Concrete City, an abandoned city in Northeast PA with all graffiti, for a photoshoot! I was ‘pose to go wit a chick but tha chick sick, so I prolly gon go by myself… For now, here comes my review for Big Blaze Solid Ground, which was released last year, courtesy of Dominant Rolla Association! Start Time: 7:25 AM | End Time: 7:56 AM

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
Here it comes… >>> You sound nice and calm, here, with this intro… Nice way ta put it fa Solid Ground! My Rating: N/A

02. “Don’t Know”
>>> Here comes somethin’ fresh, produced by Sims On Tha Track! Definitely diggin’ this sound to tha fullest; definitely soundin’ pure! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice… Hey, this was on tha previous review I did, but I’ont think it was a full review! So, here comes tha official review! Definitely diggin’ how you comin’ through wit how they “don’t know” about how you comin’ through wit it! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ great wit your consistent rhymes! And yeah, we both know about tha “real,” right?!? Like, “Real,” with a capital “R”! I like how you kicked off tha 2nd verse wit “like a condom or a pistol, you gotta keep protected;” equivalent!! I’ll consider this a re-review! My Rating: 4.3

03. Interlude 1 (Moma)
>>> Sucks about your mama… “First time I decided to put life into my music…” However, you told me you were done after this CD? You were surprised I had more reviewz of yours ta do… Look at it this way: I’ont think tha world ain’t near tha same without my brother, anymore, but I will neva let go of anything I do! Been doin’ somethin’ fa Louisiana at least once a month since October 2007, when my connection started! And, I ain’t even miss a month! My Rating: N/A

04. “Moma”
>>> Not really my kinda track but tha production makes it sound nice… Tha hook ain’t too bad with this singin’… It kinda makes it feel like it’s tha ‘90s with tha singin’ and sound, here, on tha hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds great ta hear, with tha lyrics… “Holidays iz hell;” yeah, my brother died of an overdose on Mother’s Day! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and those are some real-life lyrics, here! Tha things a diabetic would go through, just like my mom’s mom… I’ll be nice wit this rating, since this really ain’t my kinda tracks, all tha way… My Rating: 3.8

05. Interlude 2 (Downfall)
>>> Glad you been able to survive in tha streetz… My Rating: N/A

06. “Downfall”
>>> Likin’ how tha production sounds, once again, includin’ what you spittin’ on tha 1st verse, here… Likin’ how tha hook sounds, here, with how tha beat sounds with those sounds and how you handle tha “downfall” predictions! Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some nice shit ta hear, once again… My Rating: 4.2

½time: I’m diggin’ how this iz soundin’, so far… Definitely nice wit tha original production, here, as well as what you’re goin’ through! Seems like a lotta hate goin’ round yo way? Kinda like what I was dealin’ with, at tha time, with tha B-Real shit. When this CD came out, there was, like, no Louisiana music on my playlist ‘cause of that! I’ve dipped my toes back in tha water a lil’, now, but still have my guard up… For now, a 4.1-rated CD; let’s keep it goin’!

07. Interlude 3 (Right My Wrongs)
>>> Well said! My Rating: N/A

08. “Right My Wrongs”
Not “write,” but “right,” “right,” lol? I’ll let it slide ‘cause I think you goin’ wit makin’ your “wrongs” “right!” >>> Substance Muzik on tha production throughout most of this CD, here; nice! Tha hook sounds nice ta hear wit how you rightin’ these “wrongs!” Great job wit tha 1st verse, too, wit how you continuin’ where tha hook left off! And, tha 2nd verse sounds great ta hear wit these lyrics, too, keepin’ it “right!” And, we got a 3rd verse, here… Feels like so long since I “moved out!” Have been livin’ in my current house since December 15, 2003! My Rating: 4.2

09. “Bring It To ‘Em”
>>> Sounds great wit tha Substance Muzik production keepin’ it goin’… Iz Substance Muzik you, since you’re usually tha one that usually produces your tracks? I’ono, but I’m really feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha hook, here! This that nice Baton Rouge sound, here, fa me! Diggin’ this Baton Rouge, gangsta-like sound, here! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice, too; you can’t be stopped!! And, you keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, doin’ tha damn thang! Sounded like you had big hopes fa “2016,” here…; did you? I think you need to fetch your dreams again, musically! Tha reviewz ain’t gon stop, unless I die! My Rating: 4.4

10. Interlude (Phone Call)
>>> Nice lil’ phone call, here… Still, to this day, I’ono how err-body has connections wit people to where they’ll pull through and be their friend, easily. I guess that’s been my struggle within life? I’ll prolly be 40 and be like, “How y’all get this one to treat you important?,” smh? My Rating: N/A

11. “Work Out” feat. Gunna
>>> Beat sounds nice from tha Substancetastic, once again! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you’re spittin’ some nice rhymes on this excellent-soundin’ beat fa tha 225 undaground! Hey, hearin’ tha hook, here, and it sounds familiar, like I heard it from tha last review… I’ll just consider this anotha re-review, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s a feature (iz that that Gunna?); nice lil’ feature, here, fa holdin’ down tha track… I’ll put him on tha feature since it came from tha last CD… My Rating: 4.1

12. “Tomorrow”
>>> This beat sounds nice, here; props fa tha continuous production! Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds nice ta hear with that voice! “I started high school back in 1999;” I’m thinkin’, wow, that was so long ago! Then again, “I started high school back in [2002]!” Where’d tha time go? “I sleep wit all my clothes on;” yeah, if it gon be cold out! Naw, but fa’real, I do sleep in tha regular clothes I wear! Since I was 11, I ain’t really fuck wit pajamas! But, nice job wit this track! Short but sweet, here! My Rating: 4.3

13. “Solid Ground”
>>> Sounds nice, this time, wit Young Hustla on tha beat! Great job wit tha hook, holdin’ this “Solid Ground” down!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you soundin’ nice on this track, here! Nice reference ta “25 Lighters” on tha 1st verse, too! Neva imagined, but I do have about six or seven “lighters!” Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too, and speakin’ of “high school,” you referenced “Lil’ Flip ‘Game Over’,” on tha 2nd verse; nice! My Rating: 4.3

Overall: Wow, it not even 8:00 AM, yet! Gon be a long day off ‘til a 10-day stretch! But, I felt how you came through on this, consistently, with tha rhymes and tha production! Dumb shit! Not sure if this your final release, but if it AIN’T, keep it goin’!!
