Review #1,665: DJ Jubilee "Take It To The St. Thomas"

Reviewed on 3.01.2017 (Review #1,665)

Happy March & Happy 35th day in a row of reviewin’! It’s also a Happy 11 years of reviewin’ CDs, overall! Now, let’s get into my next review, in my Louisiana Reviewz Marathon: DJ Jubilee Take It To The St. Thomas, released in 1998 on Take Fo Records & was produced by DJ Duck, Full Pack, Merrill “ROC” & Super Dave! Start Time: 2:02 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!

04. “We’re Getting Ready” feat. Neche Thomas
>>> Diggin’ this fast vibe, here; good shit! Fast as 138 BPM, here, lol… Nice collab, here, as Neche helps with those lil’ chants in tha background… Luvin’ all tha chants, here; good, consistent shit! My Rating: 4.3

>>> Sounds like anotha nice lil’ bounce track, here… I really don’t have anythang ta say; just let it bounce! My Rating: 3.8

06. “Where You Headed?”
>>> Sounds like some hot shit, once again; good shit… If I don’t have much to say, it’s ‘cause there’s a lotta bounce & it bein’ 2:29 AM (just gettin’ up), not writin’ much makes me more bored… My Rating: 3.5

07. “Hot Girlz On Fire” feat. K.C. Redd
