Review #1,601: Nino "All Eyes On Me"

Reviewed on 11.30.2016 (Review #1,601)

Gettin’ some more reviewz outta my way… Forgot how I found out about this one but straight outta Small Circle Kartel Entertainment, it’s Nino All Eyes On Me, released back three years ago, in 2013! Start Time: 4:49 PM | End Time: 6:11 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 #1,601) reviewed on 11.30.2016 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Intro”
An intro with 4:21 on tha length? >>> Sounds pretty good with your intro, this beat, and how you sound like Spitta on tha verse, here…; dope… My Rating: 3.8

02. “Pay Attention” feat. Geeno
>>> G-Motivation beat; nice lil’ soundin’ beat, here… Tha beat’s a spin-off of Slick Rick’s “Children Story”, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ jammin’, like it was a West Coast anthem; dope shit! I like how you “addicted ta shmokin’ weed.” Gotta luv it, even tho I feel like I’m not “addicted” to it. Example: Today, I’m just gettin’ reviewz done… Tha 2nd verse’s nice with tha “got me a plug for dat weed,” when it came to you bein’ “15;” nice! My Rating: 4.3

03. “Life Of A Thug Nigga” feat. Ray Vicks
>>> Sounds like a nice lil’ street anthem; dope shit! Simple but pure hook with that beat! Tha 1st verse pretty nice, here; good shit… Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse and you consistently keepin’ it goin’, here; nice! Did I miss Ray Vicks or did y’all sound alike? Weird… My Rating: 3.7

04. “Outchea”
>>> Sounds like an excellent production, here! Gotta luv tha trombone! Shit sounds nice on tha hook, between bein’ “off tha porch” and bein’ “outchea!” Tha 1st verse’s pretty nice wit how you comin’ through wit it… I expect, like, some hi-hats or somethin’ in tha beat, here, but there’s none… It kinda missin’ an extra spice in tha beat… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ good, too, lettin’ it be known what be goin’ down… My Rating: 4.3

05. “Misunderstood”
>>> Comin’ through wit Big Wayne doin’ tha beat! Sounds good; can’t say much else about tha production… Baton Rouge at its finest! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s soundin’ nice wit how you keep tellin’ ‘em how they be havin’ shit “misunderstood;” dope shit! Tha 1st verse’s pretty nice wit how you comin’ through wit this gangsta shit! Tha 2nd verse’s good, as you keepin’ it G, here… My Rating: 4.2

06. “Don’t Need”
>>> Soundin’ like a catchier beat, here; definitely feelin’ those keys! Tha hook’s pretty nice; true shit about “friends turn into enemies!” Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you soundin’ good… As long as you spittin’ rhymes, you a celeb ta me—well, a celeb in tha makin’! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and you keepin’ it goin’ wit err-thang goin’ on, here… My Rating: 4.0

07. “Rather Be With You”
>>> This beat’s nice, too; gotta get used to tha background vocal sample, tho, on tha hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t too bad, here… I’ont think I gon feel this one like some of tha other shit on here, but it ain’t too bad… Tha one good thing about it iz that tha beat’s nice and it’s not too long (3:00’s nice)… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ good, too… My Rating: 3.6

08. “‘Bout That Life”
>>> Ain’t catch tha producer on tha beat but it’s anotha one of those quality-soundin’ beats from tha 225! Sounds like a good street anthem with that Spitta-like flow/sound, here! Nice, includin’ tha hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ catchy with these barbequin’ rhymes! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ decent, too; gotta keep it movin’… My Rating: 3.8

½time: Nice job with this CD, so far! Great production and you bringin’ a good set of tracks, here! 4.0 fa tha CD rating, currently…

09. “Go Wit Yo Move” feat. Roota & Blvd Jay
I think this gon be good/tha best one on here? >>> Definitely feelin’ tha intense beat intro!! Lol, I luv how I predicted this ta be my favorite track and it only has to get at least a 4.4 to be my top-rated, so far! Definitely feelin’ tha energy on tha hook and tha beat! Definitely top-notch shit!! These types of jiggin’/hyped-up tracks neva get old!! Tha 1st verse’s pretty nice; gotta luv this! It’s all about partyin’ at all times!! Fuck those goin’ ta sleep early!! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty energetic and aggressive wit tha delivery, here! Sounds like tha volume went up in tha voice! Gotta luv tha upbeat vibes!! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice, too! A Small “Circle” Kartel representation, here! I luv how it ended kinda strange, too, quickly… My Rating: 4.6

10. “Heaven Or Hell”
>>> Should I have guessed it was gon be this track with Guordan Banks and ‘em? Kinda a shitty way to follow up that energetic track… *Yawns…* Ugh! A whole 5:44? Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice wit how you comin’ through wit this energy, deliverin’ tha aggressive shit… Tha 2nd verse soundin’ nice, too, comin’ through nicely wit it… My Rating: 3.7

11. “Do 4 Love” feat. JPP3
>>> We’re goin’ downhill wit this CD? Not too crazy about tha singin’ or tha jacked-soundin’ beat, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it aight… Tha 2nd verse straight, too, but not my kinda vibe, here… My Rating: 3.3

12. “Goin’ In” feat. Doe Boy
A throwback feature, here (well, at tha time of this release, it would’ve been not too long ago), with this Short Bus Boy! >>> Sounds so much betta on tha start, here! Ken on tha beat? Just takin’ a guess from what I might’ve heard in tha background… Let’s just say it was a guess… Tha hook sounds nice with tha “retarded” shit and even tho this sounds nice, I feel like it’s lackin’ energy? Hearin’ tha 1st verse and tha beat continues ta stay interesting wit you holdin’ shit down… Keepin’ it goin’ wit Doe Boy on tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ nice on this track! Glad ta hear from him again! Then again, this don’t sound like tha same Doe Boy, to be honest… I’ll have to do research when I can! And, almost thought tha track ended but tha beat shall continue! My Rating: 4.3

13. “Them Days” feat. Kevin Gates
Let’s see… >>> Not feelin’ how it starts with a Monica sample in tha beginning, but it’s soundin’ nice with this production… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice ta hear… And, Gates on tha 2nd verse, here, doin’ his thang wit his braggin’-soundin’ rhymes… My Rating: 4.3

14. “Jump” feat. Dat Boy A, Foxx & JPP3
What a lineup! >>> Here’s some energy, here! Definitely feelin’ tha energetic beat, as well as A holdin’ down tha hook! All about tha jumpin’!! Got you on tha 1st verse, rattlin’ dem rhymes off!! “Fresher than a pack of swishers!” And, Foxx on tha 2nd verse, providin’ as much energy as A, here! Gotta luv it at all times!! And, that JPP3 dude on tha 3rd verse, here… I almost thought he was a singer on one of them tracks I ain’t feel too much, but I guess he rappin’… It’s decent rappin’; he just a filler, basically… Nothin’ negative, tho nothin’ exciting… My Rating: 4.6

15. “Tell You This”
”You”, not “Yo”? >>> Yeah, I’d say, “You”; even says it in my iTunes… Sounds like one of them country rap tunes, like, tha today’s version of it on tha beat… Hearin’ tha hook and it decent; nothin’ special wit this title… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it aight, too… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it iz what it iz, holdin’ it down… My Rating: 3.3

16. “Dumb Ova Here” feat. Doe Boy
Likin’ tha feature again! >>> Sounds like anotha energetic vibe! It might even be more energetic than tha previous Doe Boy collab! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice wit how you deliverin’ this street shit… Tha hook’s simple and plain; gotta luv tha hyped-up vibe! That’s all I know! “Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb! I’m throwed off!” And, that Doe Boy on tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ like Young Gregory with tha voice, this time… Definitely feelin’ tha club/hood shit he bringin’ to tha table; gotta luv it! My Rating: 4.2

17. “Street Muzik” feat. Roota & Donkey
Yeah…! >>> Sounds good in tha beginning, here; nice hook… Hearin’ tha 1st—oh, looka! Features! Not listed on tha back cover! Good thing I noticed ‘em and heard tha 1st verse, here! Shit’s definitely nice on tha 1st verse, wit dat aggression!! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too; can’t complain… Great job wit this collab, too; dumb shit! My Rating: 4.3

Overall: Sounded like a nice CD, here; props ta SCK! Hope you keep it movin’! I know you already are!
