Review #1,575: JFK King "Something From Nothing (Hosted by DJ Ya Boy Earl)"

Reviewed on 10.24.2016 (Review #1,575)

Keepin’ my reviewz goin’, here’s someone I barely know, I think outta Shreveport (318)… (EDIT: Lived in Shreveport for a few years, but just got tha word that he from Monroe). JFK King Something From Nothing (Hosted by DJ Ya Boy Earl), courtesy of Dream Inc.! How will this go? Start Time: 8:28 AM | End Time: 9:14 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!

© 2016 CD Review (Review #1,575) reviewed on 10.24.2016 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. Intro
>>> Nice lil’ intro from Ya Boy Earl, here, as well as that warpin’ beat! My Rating: N/A

02. “Sunset”
Scott Supreme on tha production… >>> Sounds like it gon be a slow, R&B, fuckin’-in-tha-bed-like track? Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds good, regularly-paced… Sounds good, but I hope it don’t get boring fa me, as this CD goes on… I like how you said near tha end, “I spend my time wisely; can you afford it?” That’s me right there, too! My Rating: 3.7

03. “Vice”
Young D doin’ tha beat… >>> Keepin’ tha R&B/soul thoughts alive, here, with a Simply Red background sample in tha beginning… Let’s see how much I can keep interest in this… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t too bad, once again; I can dig this slow vibe… I like how tha beat flows fa bein’ a sample, at first… Tha hook’s kinda nice fa this “love”-makin’ joint… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it ain’t too bad, once again… My Rating: 3.8

04. “SJW”
Anotha Young D beat… >>> Kinda sounds like it has more of a club vibe to it, but still, it has somewhat of an R&B vibe to it, for me… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and tha rhymes are pretty consistent, at times, as this holdin’ this track down… A “day” in tha life of tha JFK! Tha rest of tha verses ain’t too bad, here; above-decent fa me… My Rating: 3.9

05. “Looking At Me” feat. Domo
Young D! >>> Even tho it’s less on tha R&B vibe, I’m not big about this trap-rap sound… I like tha intro from Earl, here, but I’ono about this repetitive hook… Sounds like tha kinda rap I can hear on tha radio that sounds like bullshit… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s ehh… I like your party vibe, tho… Hearin’ tha Domo-featured dude on tha 2nd verse and it’s ehh, once again; can’t spark a crazy vibe… My Rating: 3.1

06. “The Boot”
Young D… >>> Likin’ tha intro from Earl, here!! “Throw an ‘L’ up if you from Louisiana, unless you drivin’! Jigg while you drivin’! Jigg!” Fuckin’ love it!! As far as this beat, it sounds nice and tha hook sounds decent from you, here; “L”-reppin’! Bass pretty loud on tha volume, here? Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like random rhymes… I’ono how much I can feel tha lyrics but it ain’t bad… Tha 2nd verse’s ehh with these lyrics… It’s crazy how I like tha R&B-soundin’ tracks betta than tha club ones, on this CD! My Rating: 3.5

07. “Commercial”
Young D doin’ this beat, too… >>> Lovin’ these Earl intros! Either way, between this beat and these lyrics, it’s too mainstream-soundin’ fa me… I like how tha connection disconnected at 1:26! My Rating: 2.6

½time: Most of this iz just decent, so far, with a few below-average fa me… It sounds like you started tha mixtape off wit some R&B-soundin’ tracks, which weren’t too bad. Then, you kept it goin’ wit mainstream-soundin’ shit, where tha beats sound like tha usual shit you hear in tha game today. When I review, I don’t wanna hear shit I can hear a million times a day! Fa now, this a 3.4-rated CD…

08. “Dominos”
Young D on tha production, once again… >>> I like how this sounds wit tha repetitive hook; catchy lil’ club track… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice ta hear; not on a bullshit level! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds great with this “pre-game in tha parking lot!” I had a lil’ bit of that on August 24, when I went to Philly ta pay tribute ta one of my murdered friends; tha meeting was nice… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it’s soundin’ great ta hear, once again; can’t deny it… My Rating: 4.1

09. “Brianna Interlude”
Obrian on tha track… >>> Thought it wasn’t gon be a track, at first, but it’s mainly just rhymes, here… Tha beat on tha quiet side and ain’t bad fa an “interlude.” Prolly could’ve been shorter, with, like, one less verse; kinda boring, here… Endin’ wit a bunch of gunshots, here? My Rating: 3.2

10. “Done With This” feat. Domo
Maskerade Beats beat… >>> Lol @ Earl in tha beginning wit “You know it’s jammin’ if I add it to my own playlist.” Ya know, it’s tha same wit me, too! As far as how this sounds, tha beat ain’t too bad, here, and tha 1st verse decent from you, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it may sound excellent and radio-friendly ta people who may think this sounds like a Drake/Ty Dolla $ign-soundin’ song, but it’s ehh fa me… And, tha 2nd verse sounds like one of those rap-singers that’s out now… My Rating: 3.6

11. “Hard Times” feat. Duece
Nate Rhoads on tha beat… >>> Sounds like a slow vibe, here, with a “fly” vibe on tha 1st verse, here… Tha rest of this was ehh; decent collab… My Rating: 3.0

12. “Montage”
Young D, here, on tha production, once again! >>> Sounds like a decent 1st verse, here, with a slow beat… Not really crazy about these lyrics and all this forgivin’, at times… My Rating: 2.7

13. “What They Like”
Nate beat… >>> Anotha slow vibe fa me…; too many slow vibes fa a ‘mixtape!’ This ain’t bad, but kinda slow fa me… My Rating: 3.3

14. “Chains” feat. Domo
Young D beat… >>> I kinda like tha line, “I wanna fuck wit my chains,” but this anotha slow one I can’t really dig too much… My Rating: 2.5

15. “Whatever Wherever” feat. Duece
Last one, produced by Maskerade Beats… >>> Sounded like one of tha better-soundin’ slow songs till tha hook came; ugly voice… My Rating: 2.0

Overall: I’ono about this one… Most of it was decent during tha 1st ½ and except for tha kick-off of tha 2nd ½ bein’ tha best one on here, tha 2nd ½ was mainly below-average and slow fa me… Still, I feel like you have potential, hopefully…
