Review #1,632: Dogg House Click "Pimps, Players & Hustlers"

Reviewed on 2.06.2017 (Review #1,632)

Keepin’ tha reviewz goin’, I have tha Dogg House Click up next, with Pimps, Players & Hustlers, released in 1997 on Mic 1 Records & was produced by tha Dogg House Click, themselves! Start Time: 8:14 AM | End Time: 9:12 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!

Link To CD: N/A

01. “Strapped With My 45”
>>> Sounds like a nice lil’ gangsta-soundin’ track, here; dope beat! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like y’all got this shit on lock, here…! More funky shit comin’ outta tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ nice… Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse, here, as y’all just keepin’ this goin’… My Rating: 4.2

02. “For My Stripes”
>>> Not bad wit tha beat, here, as I hear y’all on tha 1st verse, just regularly rappin’… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s decent, here; a decent track, overall? Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 2nd verse, soundin’ straight, as well… My Rating: 3.6

03. “Badd Ass”
>>> Sounds like a mix between a southern & West Coast-soundin’ beat vibe, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and y’all soundin’ nice and laidback, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s not bad, so far… A long-ass outro, here? At least 1:30 long? My Rating: 3.8

04. “Keeping It Real”
>>> Sounds decent, here; decent-soundin’ undaground beat and an okay 1st verse… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s decent wit tha random sample… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it straight, too… Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse, here, soundin’ decent, as well… My Rating: 3.7

05. “Serving ‘M Up”
>>> Beat sounds a lil’ betta, here; feelin’ some of tha sounds… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty good; what else can I say? Hook’s kinda catchy; diggin’ tha Arabic-soundin’ beat? Good rhymes comin’ outta tha 2nd verse with this vibe, right chea… And, 1:35 left; a long-ass beat outro comin’ up? Naw, I’m just stressin’; a 3rd verse! Here’s tha 3rd verse and it’s soundin’ decent… My Rating: 4.3

06. “Ride Or Die”
>>> Beat nice, once again…; diggin’ tha intensity in it… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s real, in tha hood… Hearin’ tha hook and tha title kinda says what it’s about; not bad… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s decent, too… Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse and yeah, this decent, as well… And, let’s see what’s remaining for tha remaining 1:20, here… Just a lil’ talkin’ and anotha hook, here… My Rating: 4.1

½time: A 4.0-rated CD, so far; I’m diggin’ tha dark-soundin’ vibes…

07. “Riding, Mugging”
>>> I’ono why, but because of tha “mug” in tha title, I literally thought tha hook sounded like tha dude’s flow/voice was from mud, lol… Still, a decent-soundin’ beat and hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds kinda random wit tha way this flow sounds… We’ll see if I can get used to it before it ends… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s decent… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it still sounds really odd wit tha voice, here… I’ono if it’s a deeper version of a southern thang, but it’s just… ehh… My Rating: 3.5

08. “Can’t Stop”
>>> Decent lil’ eerie beat, here…; tha 1st verse ain’t bad, as well… Hearin’ tha hook and it kinda catchy, but it simple and cheesy, as well… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it ain’t bad… My Rating: 3.7

09. “The Hustlers Game”
I have to shit, sadly ‘cause it’s so cold out… I gon just review this one while I shit… >>> Beat ain’t bad and tha 1st verse sounds good… Hearin’ tha hook and it flows wit tha track, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice, as well… My Rating: 4.0

10. “Keep It Real”
>>> Nice ta start off instantly, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s dope wit how y’all come through wit “it,” in a southern way… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and “it” sounds like a dope lil’ track from tha south… “It” almost sounds like that breakthrough single or somethin’ that accidentally made its way to MTV Jams, or somethin’; that’s what “it” sounds like… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s keepin’ “it” movin’, here… As far as tha rest of this, “it” straight… A long-ass beat outro, here; no wonder why these CDs take forever to finish, smh… My Rating: 3.9

11. “This Is What It’s About”
>>> Chatter in tha beginning, here… After about a minute, here comes tha 1st verse and it sounds like a dry lil’ beat… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s good wit how y’all comin’ through, here; boring beat, tho… And, we got tha 3rd verse, here, as y’all continue to randomly spit them rhymes… My Rating: 3.4

12. “Player’s Ball”
>>> A chick? Let’s get this over with, already? Random…; next! Again! Tha 2nd verse!! My Rating: 2.2

13. “Laws Trying To Get Harder”
>>> A slow, ‘90s-soundin’ beat ta end thangz off… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t bad, slowly makin’ it through… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty dope wit tha “smarter” shit… “It only make a nigga like me get smarter;” fa’real! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ cool, here… And, a 1:11-long outro… My Rating: 3.8

Overall: Some good, but mostly decent tracks, here… Nothin’ really struck me too much, but it iz what it iz, I guess?
