Review #1,590: NBA YoungBoy "Mind Of A Menace 3"

Reviewed on 11.08.2016 (Review #1,590)

Happy Birthday, $hop With Ken, even tho tha workday sucked & was a paranoid one! Will it be like that next Tuesday, when it’s B-Real’s birthday? Deserves to be, after this stressful work year!! But, too bad I ain’t get to this last night. Guess tha previous CDs made me yawn too much to where I fell asleep & couldn’t get back up? Let’s get into it, now: NBA YoungBoy Mind Of A Menace 3… BTW, I voted for Donald Trump ‘cause his 1st name’s tha same as my boy, Doe-Doe’s outta Baton Rouge! Start Time: 4:02 PM | End Time: 4:30 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!

© 2016 CD Review (Review #1,590) reviewed on 11.08.2016 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Watchu Sayin’”
>>> Q-Red said on his Instagram that he produced Track #01, but it says, “DJ Swift”? I’ono; I’ll just wait for a beat tag? Either way, sounds too much like Mista Cain on tha 1st verse with tha voice/flow, here… Regardless, it sounds nice with this beat and for an undaground rap song, overall. And, tha 2nd verse sounds a lil’ more listenable… My Rating: 3.8

02. “Life”
>>> Now, this tha Q-Red production; scratch out that 1st track! That ain’t him! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds good with these real-life rhymes… Tha beat kinda quiet, at first, but it’s pullin’ through with these eerie sounds; nice! Not much goin’ on with tha hook except a distorted sample but it sounds nice with this beat… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s special with this eerie sound in tha beat! So many different eerie sounds goin’ on; nice! I’ll give this one major credit for its pluses, despite it bein’ one of those real-life songs! My Rating: 4.3

03. “Changed”
>>> A quiet beat start but it gets better… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice wit how you comin’ through fa these Baton Rouge streetz… Around :39 - :51, you kinda have a Shy Glizzy-like voice, as tha 1st verse slowly ends; that’s what it reminds me of… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it a lil’ faster with tha flow… I’ono, nothin’ special; just too fast with tha flow… A long beat outro, too, but it sounds nice… My Rating: 3.9

04. “Ain’t Playin’”
>>> Nard & B beat; decent, so far… Hearin’ you on tha verse and it sounds okay; kinda mainstream-y…? Just yada-yada-yada with tha rhymes, here… Rappin’ doesn’t mean to just randomly rap shit off tha top of ya head fa no reason… Forgot that you do short songs, so this ended outta nowhere fa me… My Rating: 3.8

05. “Bet”
Anotha Q-Red production; can we keep it up? >>> Thought this sounded like him, but it ain’t? Was he a song off fa each # on tha tracklist? It sounds like an above-average-soundin’ beat, tho… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it decent… I’ont fuck wit tha lyrics, at times; boring “money” and doin’ it fa other people-type shit… Hearin’ tha hook and it just a regular-soundin’ hook with nothin’ much ta offer. I do like that you made “Bet” tha title, but why? Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it ain’t too bad; a lil’ betta with tha street life… My Rating: 3.7

½time: Looks like you’re on an above-decent track, here, as far as your production and tracks go. Nothin’ too bad, here; most sounds good. So far, you’re at a 3.9 for tha CD rating; hope it don’t go down…

06. “Stepped On”
Q-Red on tha beat! >>> Yup, this him, this time! Sounds like anotha pure beat fa Baton Rouge! Even how you comin’ through on tha hook’s pretty nice! Diggin’ tha steppin’! Nice job with tha 1st verse, here; nice energy deliverin’ tha rhymes, too! Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 2nd verse, too, soundin’ great like tha 1st verse… Random laughter at tha end? Wish I could be that happy at times, again… My Rating: 4.2

07. “Bootin’ In This”
>>> Q-Red did this beat and it sounds like it gon be anticipatin’! Only 1:33 on tha length? Sounds nice with this hook; I like this betta than tha previous joint! Great job with tha verse, spittin’ some fiya… A beat outro and 12 seconds of silence at tha end… My Rating: 4.3

08. “Murder (Remix)” feat. 21 Savage
Q-Red doin’ tha track…? You’re from Baton Rouge’s undaground, so no 22? And, 21 a mainstream one; how you have these connections? >>> Nope, not Q-Red, but DJ Swift, again; where was he goin’ with tha #’s? Sounds good with tha hook, here, whether it sounds familiar or not… Still, you sound nice on tha 1st verse, too… Hearin’ 21 on tha 2nd verse and it sounds good and almost an undaground feelin’, here… He kinda laidback with tha delivery but it’s still nice… It honestly makes me feel like this completely undaground, here; I can appreciate it… My Rating: 4.3

09. “All I Want” feat. 3Three
Q-Red On The Track on tha track…? >>> No beat tag; fail! Decent/betta-than-decent beat, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it ain’t bad; kinda calm with tha delivery, despite tha “strap” content? Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t bad; it flows nice with this beat… Tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad… Tha quiet vibe of this track’s kinda draggin’… My Rating: 3.7

10. “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop”
>>> Decent start with tha beat and what you’re bringin’ to tha table with tha 1st verse… Tha hook decent; nothin’ special wit this one, here… And, a 2nd verse, here, soundin’ decent… This one prolly could’ve used tha Q-Red punches ta spice thangz up… My Rating: 3.4

Overall: Looks to me like this your best release, so far, despite almost no features… Q-Red helped out a good portion of your tracks, here, so you weren’t sinkin’ in tha decent/below-average range. Also, your non-Q-Red tracks were decent/not wack, for tha most part, so that’s a plus. We’ll see how you hold it down fa tha future…
