Review #1,603: Mista Cain "Cain"

Reviewed on 12.02.2016 (Review #1,603)

Tryna get these reviewz outta my way… As I get one done, I find, like, anotha one or two! But, I think I’m gettin’ there! Gotta get back to my old Louisiana CD reviewz ASAP! This 1st one for today’s Mista Cain Cain, released on Cain Muzik & Utopia Music Group; let’s see, here… Start Time: 7:06 AM | End Time: 7:39 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 #1,603) reviewed on 12.02.2016 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “My Heart”
>>> Beat sounds nice, here, and you rappin’ on tha verse pretty nice ta let “it out.” After tha verse, it ends with a hook; title, title, title… My Rating: 4.1

02. “It’s Real”
>>> A good hook and beat; can’t complain… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you layin’ da bidness down, when it comes ta livin’ a celebrity’s lifestyle in tha hood… And, tha 2nd verse’s keepin’ it on-n-poppin’, here; catchy shit… My Rating: 4.2

03. “Where Was You”
>>> Can’t catch these new producers’ beat tags… Beat sounds good, just like tha other ones… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s a singer? Not credited? Not bad… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it soundin’ good… And, tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ nice, too; what else can I say? My Rating: 3.7

04. “Affiliated”
>>> That same producer from tha previous track… Kickin’ it off wit tha hook and it sounds catchy on this beat, fa tha streetz… Tha hook ain’t bad, but I don’t fuck wit tha “so I surround myself with rich niggaz” shit; what about broke people? It’s like, you don’t wanna help anyone out? Fuck that! But yeah, decent at its finest with these verses… My Rating: 3.9

05. “Jealous”
>>> This sounds like tha best production outta all tha tracks, so far; nice lil’ Baton Rougeness at its finest! Tha hook straight; tha streetz have been supplied… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds good ta hear on this beat… Tha 2nd verse sounds good, except how you ended it with, “When I wrote this verse, I had 30 grand on me;” why tha impossible? Not really impossible, but why tha cocky bullshit? My Rating: 4.0

06. “Set It Off”
>>> Almost thought it was auto-tune in tha beginning and I was ready to skip it! An okay hook; an okay beat… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s whateva… I’m not tha one to like rap about “money,” tho. I’ono, these rhymes ain’t nothin’ special ta me… Just sounds like err-body else tryna shine or show off, smh… My Rating: 3.4

½time: This ain’t too bad of a CD, tho nothin’ really standin’ out fa me… A 3.9-rated CD, so far…

07. “War Ready” feat. Dee Jackson
Not tha D. Jackson I know (producer from Baton Rouge)? Someone different? >>> Of course, right when a name iz taken by someone else, tha newer person tends to make things sound gayer, smh… Not really feelin’ tha voice of Dee Jackson on tha 1st verse, here! Sounds like annoying rap that be out now! And then, we got you, which you rap regular, at first, and then, speed it up? Not tha right mix fa me… My Rating: 2.7

08. “Whip” feat. John Dha Baptist & Spitta
>>> Beat sounds cool from our main producer on this CD… A simple hook but it goes over better than “money” and “baby mama” bullshit! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it soundin’ aight… Spitta on tha 2nd verse and he soundin’ nice on this, as always! Can’t complain about him holdin’ it down! Oh wait, y’all done fucked up wit tha ID! That was John Dha Baptist on tha 2nd verse (they almost sound tha same)! With that bein’ said, nice job… Hearin’ Spitta (yeah, this time, it’s Spitta) on tha 3rd verse and he soundin’ good! Pretty much, it’s tha same feedback I had for tha 2nd verse… My Rating: 4.2

09. “No Shootas” feat. Scotty Cain
I recognize this one but not with Scotty Cain; redone? >>> Still feelin’ tha Godfather-sampled beat! Good addition from Scotty, here. I feel like I can neva detect his voice, tho; it ain’t consistent to me… My Rating: 4.4

10. “Grimy”
You have an extra “M” in tha title… >>> Beat good, like tha usual Baton Rouge-soundin’ street anthems… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s soundin’ good; can’t complain… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s not bad… And, tha 2nd verse ain’t bad… It’s more of a quantity of tracks than quality, here; you always make music… My Rating: 4.0

11. “Lil’ Baby”
>>> Beat cool, as always; hook straight… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it iz what it iz… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and ain’t it nice that you got a chick? My Rating: 3.8

12. “Make The Newz” feat. T2
I had thought this was familiar, as it was featured on Big Jay’s Pyrex Radio Vol. 7: Sex, Drugs & Money, released in 2014. B-Real produced this one and it looks like it’s tha best one on here… My Current Rating: 4.6

Overall: Turned out to be an okay CD… Pretty much each track was nice, except for tha Dee Jackson collab… Most of what you did here was just quick tracks, which was nice for tha quantity of your collection of tracks… Let’s see what tha future gon bring fa tha 2K17!
