Review #1,581: Tazz "Road To Hollywood"

Reviewed on 11.04.2016 (Review #1,581)

Comin’ through wit anotha one, here, here goes my review fa Tazz Road To Hollywood, released in 2014. Question: Why this 1:24:47?! Guess it ain’t sell any copies? Start Time: 8:10 AM | End Time: 8:38 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 #1,581) reviewed on 11.04.2016 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Road To Hollywood”
>>> Likin’ tha beat and how this sounds fa a start… Hearin’ how you comin’ through wit tha rappin’ and it’s soundin’ decent; can’t complain… Tha hook’s pretty nice, too; good shit, overall… My Rating: 4.2

02. “Way Too Long”
That’s “too” on tha title, not “to”! >>> Sounds like it has a good vibe ta it… I’m diggin’ this laidback vibe and how you comin’ through wit a slow-soundin’ hook ova this beat… Might be “way too long,” as far as how “long” this track iz, but it’s whateva… My Rating: 3.5

03. “Gotta Make It”
>>> Beat sounds like a good lil’ quiet, Baton Rouge-soundin’ one… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s decent, makin’ “it on [our] own.” That’s exactly what I have ta do, since there’s no1! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you sound like a ‘90s/early ‘00s rapper, at times; good shit… Good rhymes throughout this; you know how ta hold it down… My Rating: 3.7

04. “Let Me Explain”
>>> Likin’ tha beat, here, for a laidback one and it’s soundin’ like a decent track with this laidback hook… Rhymes ain’t too bad; sounds like a good song ta be motivated to… It can be a lil’ long, at times, tho… My Rating: 3.6

05. “Bitch You” feat. Youngin & Clubfoot
>>> Anticipatin’ this club vibe in tha beginning with tha hook! Almost sounds like Foxx sampled on tha hook, as well as almost soundin’ like Beezy Bird wit tha “bow” samples, too! Definitely evolved-soundin’ shit, here! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ great wit how you have your unique, G-Funk voice ta hold down a Baton Rouge club banga down… Youngin on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit some good rappin’; it just sounds good, basically… And, Clubfoot on tha 3rd verse, just holdin’ tha vibe down… My Rating: 4.3

06. “True Soldiers” feat. Dreco
>>> Nice beat, here, from Dreco and tha hook’s pretty nice fa tha streetz… I like tha gangsta vibe you bring to tha undaground, here, just stayin’ on ya grind… Dreco sounds good on this, too, helpin’ you out, here… Sounds like a good track, even tho a lil’ long… My Rating: 3.6

07. “Wid Us”
Likin’ tha title… >>> Likin’ tha hook, here, wit tha, “You don’t wanna go ta war wid us.” Definitely catchy with how tha hook sounds, wit how you holdin’ it down! My Rating: 4.0

08. “Fuck You Over”
Anotha short one… >>> Beat’s decent, here, and your rhymes are nice. I’m diggin’ how you survivin’ tha street life on this track, here. My Rating: 3.8

09. “Fight Song” feat. Joc (TT Ent.)
>>> Uh oh @ tha beat intro! Sounds pretty serious! Dreco, again? Hook’s pretty nice, even tho you coulda had a lil’ more energy in your flow, here? Still, nice job! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice! Your laidback voice can hold tha clubs down, regardless… And, them Ent. boyz on tha 2nd verse sounds pretty nice; can’t deny it… My Rating: 3.9

10. “Grinding, Shining”
It’s “shining”, not “shineing”. >>> A really slow, kinda-draggin’ intro, here, includin’ your beginning part with tha hook… Not too bad for a laidback vibe ta come out outta nowhere, even tho it’s a lil’ long, once again… I could rate it lower but I feel a lil’ somethin’ outta it… My Rating: 3.5

½time: Not too bad, so far; sounds a lil’ betta than tha previous release? You have a few more betta vibes, this time, and you know how ta surprise me wit tha tracks; good shit! A 3.8-rated CD, so far…

11. “So Tired”
>>> Again, this anotha laidback one that sounds pretty nice; feelin’ tha hook… Also, somethin’ about these beats that have somethin’ special attached to ‘em. I dig tha undaground vibe and not tryna sell out! Definitely feelin’ tha hook, once again, and tha rhymes ain’t too bad ta hold it down! My Rating: 3.8

12. “Let Me Know” feat. Ugly K
>>> This has a sample in tha beginning fa tha soul/R&B heads… Kinda sappy fa me, this time; felt tha previous song betta… Tha Ugly K dude sounds like they can go down as a legend when they pass? I’ono, just basin’ it off they voice… Still, just decent/a lil’ below-average fa me… My Rating: 3.2

13. “Unborn Child” (100 Jimmy feat. Tazz)
>>> Not feelin’ tha Tupac-sampled hook with almost tha same title, here… Luckily, it turned into a regular-produced song… Beat’s kinda sappy, but I’m feelin’ how it’s a lil’ depressin’, here, since that’s what tha world’s turning into… This iz way too long fa me ta just sit here, tho, like, 6:06? What else can I say? I’d rather just pass this one… My Rating: 2.6

14. “Foreign Cars” (JoJo On The Hook feat. Tazz)
>>> Seen just tha “JoJo On The Hook” in tha ID and thought it was just whoever that iz. However, I hear you in tha beginning? So, I’ll just put it as them featuring you? Sounds too much like a showoff song ta me with a boring beat… Ugh! Why that beat tag gotta keep repeatin’? Turn-off fa me! Anotha one that’s too long, too! My Rating: 2.5

15. “Dreams & Nightmares”
>>> Very dry beat, here; decent rhymes… Ehh, can’t really say much… My Rating: 2.7

16. “Ride With Me”
Knew this sounded familiar… My Current Rating: 4.2

17. “Get In There” (SmashBros feat. Lit Nick)
My Current Rating: 3.6

18. “My Song To You” feat. 100it Jimmy & Banana
>>> Kinda sounds like a jacked beat in tha beginning… A lil’ too R&Bish fa me… Bringin’ back tha Vybe beats again, lol? This was 2014, too? Thought that dude was all washed up by then? Random… Also, too long, here; ehh… My Rating: 3.1

19. “10 A.M.”
>>> I’m likin’ this slow, laidback vibe… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you sound like a ‘90s rapper with these “school” rhymes, here; dope! My Rating: 3.9

20. “Get Me”
>>> Really long length, here… Long beat intro and it’s not really for me, here… Not much inta tha “gettin’ money” shit, nor a laidback vibe… Rhymes ain’t too bad, overall, as you got this street shit on lock, tho. It’s just, I’ono, just a lil’ too laidback fa me? My Rating: 3.3

21. “I Ain’t Worried” feat. Banana
>>> Beat’s decent, here… Just sounds like a random song ta end this CD off… And, even a random appearance from Banana, too… My Rating: 2.9

Overall: Thought this was a better CD than tha previous one, but tha 2nd ½ of tha CD made tha previous CD sound better… Still, there were tracks on here that sounded betta than tha 1st CD and I thought you had evolved… Either way, let’s see how tha 3rd one gon go…
