Review #1,636: Tre-8 "Dey Scared Of Me"

Reviewed on 2.08.2017 (Review #1,636)

As work’s been stressful, I’ve been hungry to get these reviewz done… Like, I’ve been real hungry!! Been tryna get three reviewz done a day!! Lemme kick off February 8, 2017 with Tre-8 Dey Scared Of Me, released in 1996 on Smoke 1 Records & was produced by Tre-8, except #09, which was produced by Ice Mike! Start Time: 1:51 AM | End Time: 3:02 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!

01. Intro (Niggaz Hittin’ A Safe)
>>> Definitely intense and gangsta, tha way I love it!! My Rating: N/A

02. “Night Time Falls (Fright Nite 2)” feat. J-Dawg
>>> Gotta luv tha eerieness!! Great production!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s consistent; gotta luv it! Tha hook’s definitely for tha “Fright Niterz!” Gotta luv all these dark tracks!! Unstoppable 2nd verse, here, of course!! Gotta keep it movin’ wit tha 3rd verse, here, soundin’ dope! My Rating: 4.8

03. “Down South Hustler” feat. Zeeda
>>> Beat’s pretty dope, here, of course; good shit! Nice job wit how you come through wit tha 1st verse, here! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s nice ta hear! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and your hustle continues ta stay strong! Zeeda on tha 3rd verse, here, doin’ a nice job for tha undaground… My Rating: 4.5

04. “Tried To Told Ya”
>>> Sounds like a jammin’ track, here; good shit! Sounds like somethin’ a No Limit rapper would rap off of, but with your gangsta twist, here? Dope sounds on tha beat, 1st verse & hook! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice, as well… Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse wit a crazy flow/beat/rhymes goin’ on, here!! A+++ rhymes!!! Gotta luv that you were pure and gotta luv that you have so much music that was released!! My Rating: 4.9

05. “Tru 2 Da Game”
>>> Keepin’ tha eerie production goin’ on, here, soundin’ nice; dope hook! “You neva know when you gonna go;” gotta get this shit done!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty dope, here, soundin’ great! Gotta dig tha bass as it sounds dope while you rap this! Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ like a dope verse, as well! I luv how you detectin’ these “new niggaz on tha scene,” as they’re checkin’ shit out… It sux that tha newbies kinda overrule tha world, but we gotta respect who came first (e.g., you)! We got tha 3rd verse, here, soundin’ pretty nice, too, as you keep these consistent, undeniable rhymes comin’ along! My Rating: 4.6

06. “I Represent”
>>> Anotha decent/good beat, here, with you doin’ ya thang on tha 1st verse, here…! You tha undaground rap machine, consistently spittin’ tha rhymes out!! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice from you, here, as well; trapped in da rhymes!!! I like how you mimicked Biggie with “if you don’t know, now you know!” See, when rappers mimic those that pass now, it sounds wack & I’m like, “Okay…?” However, even tho Biggie was still alive, here, it sounded nice that you quoted him… My Rating: 4.6

07. “Southern Funk”
>>> Nice lil’ beat, here, as well as you tearin’ up tha 1st verse! A female on tha hook, here, soundin’ nice wit her “southern funk!” Tha beat has a dope lil’ eerie-soundin’, G-“Funk”-type beat, here, on tha 2nd verse; good shit, 8! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and you consistently keepin’ it G, here, not stoppin’! My Rating: 4.4

08. “Pass Da 9”
Classic one, here? >>> Of course, still soundin’ nice, just like tha old “Pass Da 9”, wit Tre-8’s group, Westbank Coalition! Tha chick on tha hook’s dope! I reviewed that Westbank Coalition CD, Westbak Coalition, on May 28, 2009, exactly two years before you passed; crazy!! Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 3rd verse, too, of course, doin’ tha damn thang!! My Rating: 4.7

09. “Half Of Me”
Ice Mike doin’ this beat! >>> This sounds nice ta hear, here; great job wit tha beat, Mike! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like an intense, paranoid-type style of rap, here, fa tha laidback undaground! Crazy with tha shit, “When I die…;” you left us with a lot, Tre!! Nice job wit tha 2nd verse, here; sounds good, even tho a lil’ less-intense than tha 1st verse… And, tha 3rd verse, here, soundin’ pretty nice… My Rating: 4.5

½time: A pure CD, so far, between tha production & your rapid-fire, quality, machine-spittin’ rappin’, here! Nice collabz, as well! A 4.6-rated CD, tha only way you know how ta do it!! Well, it ain’t that cold, but when it’s cold in my room, I usually have to shit… Ugh! Lemme go do dat, right quick & get back to this review… *Shits at 2:26 AM…* *Returns from shittin’ at 2:28 AM…* At least that was fast! Have to be at work in an hour! Gotta get this done & eat!!

10. “Datz How It’s Gone Happen”
>>> Sounds like a cool beat; luvin’ tha eerie sounds!! Gotta luv tha consistent lyrics from this “lyricist,” Tre!! Tha real way to deliver lyrics, not that bullshit they pull off today wit “My lyrics are good,” smh! Tha hook’s catchy; not bad… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ good wit how you “get hot like fire,” here! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse, here, and you’re keepin’ this shit goin’; gotta luv it! My Rating: 4.5

11. “On My Block”
>>> Almost sounds like a spoken-word freestyle? Nice job, here, ova this dark-soundin’ beat… My Rating: 4.2

12. “Dey Scared Of Me”
>>> Nice lil’ jammin’ beat fa them dark gangstaz, here! Good shit! Speakin’ of dark gangstaz, gotta luv my best friend, who went out in tha middle of tha night, tha previous night & got someone’s quad, in honor of me! Fuckin’ love it!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty dope! Gotta keep it movin’, tho, lol…! Hearin’ tha hook and, of course, who wouldn’t be afraid of one of tha best? Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty consistent, here! “I got more ammo than Rambo;” ba-lah-la-brrrrrrrrrrrr!!! My Rating: 4.6

13. “I Getz Wicked”

My Rating: 4.5

14. “I Fade’m All”
>>> Nice lil’ beat; nice lil’ hook… Consistent-soundin’ 1st verse, here, as far as tha rhymes go! Gotta luv what you bringin’ to tha table!! You just don’t stop, as tha 2nd verse’s pure heat!! “Strapped like SWAT teams…;” should we call you “Crazy-8”, ya dig?! Crazy shit on tha 3rd verse, too!! Unstoppable!! You lay it down to tha max, here!! “I bounce you like a check;” ba-“bounce!!” My Rating: 4.7

15. “Jealousy” feat. Alize’e & Mr. Chieffa
>>> A nice lil’ dark beat, here, wit tha 1st verse soundin’ nice from you, here, wit tha “thunda!” Tha hook sounds decent wit this chick on it; decent vibe… A chick on tha 2nd verse, here, givin’ this a decent vibe, as well… Tha 3rd verse’s decent wit this feature… I’ono, you did way betta when it was just you… My Rating: 4.0

16. “Ya Didn’t Know”
>>> Decent lil’ beat, as it sounds like a West Coast-soundin’ track, with a southern twist… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it ain’t bad… We got tha 2nd verse, here, as you’re keepin’ this shit goin’… Diggin’ how it sounds consistent, as tha 2nd verse progresses! My Rating: 4.3

17. “Sewed Up” feat. Ceaser & 9-Glock
>>> Kickin’ it off wit, “I breaks ‘em off like a lizard…” Gotta luv my saying, “There’s a Lizard in tha building!,” in reference to this Liz that I know! Good job wit tha beat and 1st verse, here, holdin’ shit down! Tha hook reminds me of a No Limit/Skull-type track; gotta luv it! We got tha 2nd verse goin’ on, here, soundin’ pretty nice; can’t deny it! Gotta feel tha 3rd verse, too, as all y’all seem to get along in a major way, here! My Rating: 4.4

18. “Hustlin’s My Hobby” feat. Ceaser, Lil’ Nick & G-Spade
>>> Sounds good; nice lil’ beat, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and y’all got this shit on lock, here! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice, strictly “hustlin’!” We got tha 2nd verse, here, and it’s pretty nice, too… Great job wit tha 3rd verse, here, keepin’ it movin’! And, a 4th verse, too? Sounds pretty nice, here… My Rating: 4.3
