Review #1,651: Boyz Home Records "Ballerz Anthem"

Reviewed on 2.16.2017 (Review #1,651)

Here comes my next review: Boyz Home Records Ballerz Anthem, released in 1998 on Boyz Home Records & was produced by Trini McGee (except #15, which was produced by Richard Jackson & #16, which was produced by DJ Lil’ Daddy)! Start Time: 2:01 AM | End Time: 2:58 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. MC Dice “My Soldja”
>>> A slow start, here, with decent rappin’… Tha hook’s a lil’ ehh and tha other two verses are decent… I’ono about startin’ a compilation off wit a slow, depressin’ song, tho… My Rating: 3.1

02. Trini “Outlaw”
>>> Sounds more upbeat, here; catchy lil’ beginning and ‘90s beat fa tha N.O., here! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds aight… It almost sounds like they’re like a Mystikal, here? Funny how he mentioned “Mystikal,” too, just seconds after I said that! Tha 2nd verse sounds nice wit tha Magnolia Shorty “Charlie Whop” reference, too, lol… Diggin’ tha lil’ outro of all tha “soulja rag” chantin’, too… My Rating: 4.1

03. Dollar Bill feat. Bozak & Trini “Ballin’”
>>> Diggin’ tha “It Takes Two” sample in tha background, here, while this decent beat plays… Sounds like indistinct singin’ in tha beginning, here, with this hook? Now, we got rappin’ at :51, on tha 1st verse, soundin’ decent… Tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad, here, but tha track still sounds a lil’ too soft, at times… My Rating: 3.3

04. Dollar Bill feat. 2-Face “Bring It On”
>>> I like how tha beat a lil’ betta wit tha more-upbeat sound, but it still sounds a lil’ quiet, overall… Like, why all that singin’ on tha 2nd verse? Tha 1st verse was decent, by tha way… My Rating: 2.4

05. Nick Newton & Diggy Dice “Interview”
>>> A nice, quick “interview,” here, fa tha ’98… My Rating: N/A

06. 2-Face, Bozak, MC Dice & Trini “Ballerz Anthem”
>>> This sounds much betta wit tha upbeat vibe! Let’s hope it turns out that way!! Tha hook sounds nice wit tha “ballin’,” here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds good wit tha rappin’, here, holdin’ it down fa tha Cash Money Records era… Here’s tha 2nd verse, as dude comin’ through, “huntin’” like a “rabbit!” Tha 3rd verse ain’t too bad, here… As it was a short verse, there’s a 4th verse, here, and it’s decent… My Rating: 3.8

07. Bozak “World Full Of Rapture”
>>> Sounds good, here, wit tha 1st verse and decent beat, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it ain’t bad; a lil’ catchy wit “now, who’s tha nigga who got-got? Now, who’s tha nigga who got shot?”  Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds decent, so far… We got tha 3rd verse, here, and it’s pretty nice, as well… My Rating: 3.7

08. 2-Face & Da Family “Godfather”
>>> Sounds like a nice lil’ skit… Random laughter? My Rating: N/A

½time: Sounds decent, so far… A few tracks are a lil’ on tha soft side, while tha other half’s decent… Only a 3.4-rated CD, so far; we can do betta!

09. MC Dice feat. Dollar Bill “Who Ride”
>>> Beat’s plain and ehh fa a West Coast-soundin’ beat… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it aight… Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds nice fa a “ride,” but I’ono how much I can really feel this… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse and it sounds decent, here… And, we got a 3rd verse, here, soundin’ decent, as well… This joint prolly coulda sounded less plain and I woulda liked it betta, here… My Rating: 3.4

10. Lil’ Kevin a.k.a. Face Jr. “Kidz Tale”
>>> Wow, that was a quick skit; random! My Rating: N/A

11. 2-Face feat. MC Dice “Jealousy”
>>> Sounds decent, here, wit this upbeat beat… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s on tha calm side? Hearin’ tha hook and it’s random nothingness? Tha 2nd verse just barely decent, fa me; why all these voices soft and quiet, on this CD?? And, a 3rd verse, here, soundin’ decent, but my interest iz pretty low… My Rating: 2.7

12. Tema “I Don’t Want You No More”
>>> A female? Oh, boy, this gon drag!!! Beat sounds like old tracks like “Paid In Full” and all that, here… I’ono, but I have almost “no” interest fa this! More sing-rappin’ than rappin’, here… Finally, a dude rappin’ at 1:53 and he sounds decent… Still, no credit fa tha dude? Who iz he? My Rating: 1.7

13. 2-Face & Dr. Unknown “Chuck Interlude”
>>> Not sure what ta say, here… Almost sounds like a mystery vs. an orgasm, here… My Rating: N/A

14. High Demand “Cheating”
>>> Fuck! A singin’ track? Fuck! Not really in tha mood for one or for one on this CD! Just some ‘90s R&B, here, wit a Mardi Gras-soundin’ beat… Aight, maybe, this a good song fa those “cheating;” that’s it… My Rating: 2.0

15. Crescent City Gangsta “Twerk That Thang”
>>> Beat’s a lil’ on tha soft/plain side, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like dude coulda been a potential, undaground success? Feelin’ tha gangsta’s story, here… Diggin’ tha “Polos, Girbauds” and shit like dat, too! A chick on tha 2nd verse, here? I’ono… Decent, but random/unexpected, here… My Rating: 3.3

16. Tim Smooth “Give It Up”
>>> Already know this one? Sounds like “I Gotsta Have It”… If it iz, then here’s my current rating… My Current Rating: 4.1

Overall: This compilation ain’t go over too well… I ain’t really fuck wit tha soft-soundin’ tracks, here…
