Review #1,645: Bally B "Gotta Be Greedy"

Reviewed on 2.11.2017 (Review #1,645)

Lemme get up and do tha next review… Bally B Gotta Be Greedy, released in 1998 on Hit’em Up Records & was produced by Hakeem! Start Time: 2:22 AM | End Time: 2:54 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. Greedy (Intro)
>>> Tha debut of Ziggly Wiggly, here? Dope beat; dope appearance! My Rating: N/A

02. “Gotta Be Greedy”
>>> Here’s that dope beat; good shit! Reminds me of old Cash Money shit, especially Juve/Wayne! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s catchy as hell wit how you deliver it, here! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ pretty nice, here, continuin’ ta represent fa tha 5-0-4! My Rating: 4.3

03. “Bounce With Bally B” feat. DJ Jubilee
Ooooh! >>> Nice lil’ bounce-type beat, here, wit y’all holdin’ down tha hook! Hearin’ tha 1st verse from y’all and it’s pretty dope; energy up tha asshole, here, lol! Continuous, here…; feelin’ tha “Me & My Girlfriend” remake toward tha 3:00 mark! My Rating: 4.0

04. “Uptown Soldiers, Downtown Warriors” feat. Krazy & Trigga T
>>> Sounds like a nice lil’ gangsta-soundin’ beat, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s a good representation, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and it’s soundin’ good, here… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd ½ of tha 1st verse, soundin’ pretty nice, as well… Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha next verse… Ugh, I’m, like, fadin’ out ‘cause I’m so upset about how certain artists ignore me, especially if it’s me tryna produce for ‘em… I almost was gon give them a free beat but I think buyin’ tha beat more important than a free one!! Tha priorities are not there?!? But yeah, good lil’ verse and outro, here… My Rating: 3.9

05. “Smokin’ Weed”
Yeah! >>> Sounds decent for a start, here… A nice hook, especially how you “feel like somethin’ missin’,” here… I prefer a dude doin’ this kinda track than you, as it’s just about decent, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s good; nothin’ really ta say… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds really aggressive, here? I can’t feel it, as much as if a dude rapped it, but it’s aight… Tha rest decent, but why it gotta be 4:43? That too long fa a female rappin’, fa me… My Rating: 3.6

½time: A 4.0-rated CD, so far; decent/good, even tho it more on tha decent side, here… Still, nice production from Hakeem, tho…

06. “Watch Out Me Hustlers”
>>> Sounds like a decent hook… Hearin’ tha beat and it’s decent, as well… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I’ono how I can really feel about this aggression…? Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha rest of this and it’s too long for a faster-soundin’ song… Still, nice aggression and club vibe, but not tha best outcome ta impress me tha most… A whole entire minute of an outro, here… My Rating: 3.4

07. “Hit’em Up” feat. Mista Hakeem
>>> Sounds like a decent beat, here, wit a decent hook… Hakeem takin’ tha mic, here, on tha 1st verse, soundin’ decent… Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse, here, and it’s decent, of course… I’ono, my interest goin’ down, here… My Rating: 3.7

08. “We Roll Allnight” feat. Legend Man & Sporty-T
>>> Smooth beat, smooth hook, here… Hearin’ tha hook and I like that it’s smooth and then, I like how your aggressive voice comes outta nowhere… Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you, comin’ through wit a lotta “oh”-like rhymin’, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ decent, here… Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse, here, wit anotha consistent-soundin’ verse! My Rating: 4.1

09. “Hustlers (Remix)”
>>> Good lil’ beat, here… Tha hook’s kinda soft but it iz what it iz, I guess? Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you’re keepin’ it grimy, here; good shit! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ good, as well… Great job wit tha rest of this, too, keepin’ it gutta… My Rating: 3.8

10. “Smokin’ Trees (Radio)”
Clean version of #05… See #5 fa tha review!

Overall: Good lil’ CD… I like your aggression but I just dunno about feelin’ tha songs that much, overall… Statistically, they’re great, tho…
