Review #1,580: Tazz "Thoughts In My Mind"

Reviewed on 11.04.2016 (Review #1,580)

Randomly decided to find some CDs from some artists featured on CDs and I came across Baton Rouge’s Tazz Thoughts In My Mind, released in 2013; let’s see… Start Time: 7:16 AM | End Time: 7:42 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 #1,580) reviewed on 11.04.2016 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Intro”
>>> Sounds like it can be a good beginning/hook with how it sounds with tha “Thoughts In My Mind” and how they go “round and round.” Tha beat’s kinda ehh/plain, but sounds a lil’ betta than a usual plain beat… Tha verse sounds decent, too; can’t complain too much… My Rating: 4.1

02. “I’m Dedicated” feat. Roger
>>> Intro, here, ta let y’all know what’s in… Tha beat sounds kinda depressing/sad? Not my kinda song; decent, here… It sounds like anotha good part from you, tho, with how you deliver it… Tha hook almost sounds like a Bone Thug on tha voice… A lil’ too long, but not too bad… My Rating: 3.2

03. “TreTown Thang” feat. Clubfoot & P.Oaks
>>> I’m likin’ how this sounds… This may sound crazy, but because this not 2016, I feel like this sounds like so long ago! Like, three years ago was that long ago? Shit! Wish DJ B-Real would fuckin’ finally realize that with me! Like, 2013? Really? Beat sounds like a nice street vibe, here, with its undaground, Baton Rouge vibe… Tha hook’s not bad ta hold it down fa tha “TreTown,” here. This collaboration sounds nice ta hear, with its party vibe, too… My Rating: 3.8

04. “DJ Turn The Beat Up” feat. Joc & Banana
Lol @ tha feature names… >>> Sounds like a good club vibe, fa tha undaground, as if it was a nice imagination… You sound nice on tha 1st verse, here, with that voice of yours holdin’ shit down… Props fa tha 2nd verse, too, jumpin’ “stupid,” too, from that Joc. And, that Banana’s a chick, comin’ through nicely fa tha undaground… She sounds like a nice lil’ chick from ‘07/’08’s undaground… My Rating: 3.7

05. “How She Feels” feat. Jimmy
>>> Tha hook kinda sappy and this beat ain’t really doin’ much in tha beginning… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you sound a lil’ betta, here, even tho a lil’ low on tha voice? Nothin’ really interestin’, includin’ how quiet tha Jimmy dude be soundin’ on tha 2nd verse… Iz this R&B or rap??? My Rating: 3.3

06. “Get In There” (SmashBros feat. Lit Nick)
>>> Volume’s much louder, here? Random… Sounds like a nice lil’ undaground club song, here; can’t complain, a lil’… Rhymes ain’t too bad, at times, even tho I can be more interested with tha verses… My Rating: 3.6

07. “Bend It Over” feat. Ked & Cal
>>> Sounded like it randomly was mixed in with tha previous song? This sounds like anotha nice club vibe, even tho I like this one a lil’ more… Rhymes are ehh; can’t really go nuts about ‘em… My Rating: 3.6

08. “Gangsta Shit” (Ked feat. Shane Youngin & Tazz)
>>> Ugh!! Not likin’ tha Nu$$ie-sampled quote in tha beginning! No reason fa dat!! I mean, “Down For My Ns” beat? Naw, no Nu$$ie needed!! This ain’t too bad with tha rhymes and how y’all handlin’ tha flow, but I can’t be bothered… My Rating: 3.4

½time: Nothin’ special, just a decent CD, so far, that sounds like it’s not even from 2013; sounds more ‘06ish…? Either way, a 3.6-rated CD, so far; got plenty more to go after this!

09. “Hard Times” feat. LiDreco & Banana
>>> Looks like it gon be too long… Sounds decent with how tha beat sounds and how you definin’ these “hard times,” on tha hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like you sound like an older rapper… It sounds like you can hold shit down on ya own with your releases… Dreco sounds like a nice lil’ Baton Rouge rapper, here; nice contribution… And, Banana aight with these real-life rhymes; prolly should just stick to club rhymes, tho… My Rating: 3.7

10. “Same Thang” feat. LiDreco & Celly Cel
>>> Beat sounds nice fa tha undaground; tha hook ain’t too bad… You on tha 1st verse and it sounds like you’re like a younger version of tha rappers I grew up to, here… Dreco sounds good, once again, here; anotha good contribution… And, Celly Cel comin’ through like a nice Baton Rouge rapper, too; can’t complain… My Rating: 3.7

11. “Ride With Me”
>>> I’m likin’ tha beginning, here… Tha beat sounds nice and tha hook sounds like a nice lil’ eerie song that coulda qualified fa tha G-Funk era! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and yeah, you do have tha voice of a G-Funk artist! My Rating: 4.2

12. “I Don’t Fuck Around” feat. Joc & Dreco
Just “Dreco”, this time? Not “LiDreco”? >>> How random to bring back tha Vybe beats… Kinda boring with a repetitive hook, here… Your verse’s ehh fa this kinda vibe; nothin’ special… Likin’ how that Joc dude sounds on tha 2nd verse. It sounds like he got this Baton Rouge undaground shit on lock… And, Dreco ain’t too bad on tha 3rd verse, too… My Rating: 3.1

13. “Fuck A Nigga” feat. Celly Cel & Dreco
>>> A stupid beat tag in tha beginning; couldn’t even undastand it! Sounds like it can have a club vibe but, like, with how rappers treat me as an imaginary thing, that’s how this sounds ta me. It has a good club vibe but I’ont see it goin’ past someone’s house… Sounds like anotha good collab, tho, as that Celly Cel dude has that energy ta offer. And, Dreco sounds good with his rhymes; decent song, overall… My Rating: 3.5

14. “1Chopper, 2HandGuns” (Dreco feat. Tazz)
>>> Now, I understand tha beat tag from tha last song. It’s Dreco, as it’s on this one, too… Decent-soundin’ beat fa tha undaground; can’t complain… Tha hook sounds catchy; I’m likin’ tha flow/voice… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you can’t deny them “guns,” right? Scary… And, some nice G-shit from Dreco on tha 2nd verse…; decent at its finest… My Rating: 3.5

15. “Own Thang” feat. Dreco
>>> Dreco, again, on tha beat… Ehh, nothin’ really much happenin’ wit this one, here… It kinda sounds catchy on tha hook but nothin’ much goin’ on wit tha verses… It ain’t terrible, tho… My Rating: 3.3

16. “Lean”
>>> Dreco, again, with tha beat? Likin’ this content and this simple hook… Beat kinda quiet in tha background, tho; not mastered right? Decent track; just like tha content… My Rating: 3.7

17. “Rap Battle” feat. 100it Jimmy
So, I guess Jimmy’s really named “100it Jimmy”? Inconsistent names (Jimmy/100it Jimmy & Dreco/LiDreco)… >>> Love how this one’s louder, outta nowhere… It sounds nice with this club beat; can’t deny tha club vibe… Of course, a Mista quote with, “Hate when niggaz mouth off…” Mista/Wne (their song); close enough… My Rating: 3.4

Overall: Not too bad for a 1st release. You have that underground vibe, here, and your songs ain’t too bad… At least you provide an undaground vibe and not no mainstream bullshit, here…
