Review #1,669: E.M.C. "I Gotta Shine And Get Mine"

Reviewed on 3.05.2017 (Review #1,669)

Happy 39th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs!! Also, happy eight years since I shmoked weed for tha 1st time (9:59 PM)! Gotta keep tha consistency goin’!! Here goes my next review, outta Baton Rouge: E.M.C. I Gotta Shine And Get Mine, released in 1998 on Assault & Battery Records & was produced by E.M.C.! Start Time: 1:55 AM | End Time: 3:03 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. “Bump This Shit”
>>> Sounds pretty nice; good hook and decent, dry, hip-hop beat… Love how tha whole entire track’s repetitive and features tha title part! Almost sounds like an intro but it’s a dope track, overall! My Rating: 4.4

02. “Overnite House Guest”
>>> This has a slow-soundin’ hip-hop beat, here, and it’s soundin’ nice on tha 1st verse, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty dope; tha next “Make ‘Em Say Ugh”? Lots of “ugh”s! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s not too bad, as well… My Rating: 4.0

03. “Penitentary Pussy”
>>> Sounds like it can be a track fa Juvenile or somethin’; decent, here… Hearin’ tha hook and, lol, there used to be a “PP” that used to work with me, just under a month ago! Funny that you’re sayin’, “PP,” here! Dope hook! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice, here…  And, tha 3rd verse sounds like a feature? Decent… My Rating: 3.8

04. “Blood N 1 Hand, Rocs In The Other”
>>> Sounds like a slow jam with a decent 1st verse, here… Almost thought tha hook sounded like talkin’, but it was a lil’ chat before tha hook… Overall, it’s aight, but this track’s dry… My Rating: 3.2

05. “Nuthin’ But Tha Dog In Me”
>>> Sounds good, but a lil’ dry, still… Rhymes ain’t that bad, nor iz tha hook… My Rating: 3.5

06. “I Ain’t Bullshitting”
>>> Beats are still a lil’ dry, here, with not much goin’ on… Here and there, a catchy sound or two, but other than that, dry vibes… My Rating: 3.6

07. “Don’t Push Me”
>>> Sounds like a dry, but gangsta-soundin’ Master P-type track? Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t bad, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s good, but yeah, not too much else goin’ on… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds like that undaground, Louisiana shit to like, here! Despite this bein’ from tha Rouge, this has more of a N’awlinz sound to it… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it’s not bad, as well… Tha beat outro at tha end, here, iz over a minute long, too… My Rating: 3.9

½time: A 3.8-rated CD, so far; not bad, even tho dry, at times…

08. “I Gotta Shine And Get Mine” feat. Untouchables
>>> A lil’ quiet and dry, here, but it ain’t too bad, so far… Really quiet tha whole way through, but decent, I guess? Tryna get my latest playlist ready, at tha same time… My Rating: 3.4

09. “Suprise”
>>> Anotha quiet intro? Okay, I hear tha beat kickin’ in… Still on tha dry side, here, but tha 1st verse sounds decent… Tha rest of this ain’t bad, but there’s not much sparkin’ my attention, here… My Rating: 3.3

10. “187 Skills”
>>> This has more of a gutta feel to it, even tho tha beat still dry… Hearin’ tha verses and they sound nice wit tha lil’ bit of aggression, here… My Rating: 3.7

11. “Still Down”
Really?! It’s 12:21 on tha length?? >>> At least tha beat’s a lil’ betta and has more of an eerie vibe, here! Good shit! More of an interlude, here? I feel like I want more! Hearin’ tha 1st verse at 2:10 and it sounds like a regular verse; not much ta say… Next up, tha 2nd verse and it sounds nice wit this “weed” topic; good shit! All these “room”s, too! Nice interludes/hooks of just tha eerie beat in between, as well… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse at 5:54 and it sounds pretty nice, too, wit tha rhymes and tha eerie beat… And, not much of a gap in between tha 3rd & 4th verses, here… Sounds good with tha “from tha back of tha blunt” shit; good shit! Almost thought tha track had over a three-minute beat outro but at 9:37, we have tha 5th verse, here, soundin’ nice ta hear… Luv how you countin’ down, “30 seconds left to smoke…,” and, “15 seconds left to smoke…;” dope shit, overall! My Rating: 4.3

12. “I Gotcha Right Here”
>>> Sounds like a decent 1st verse and track, here; still, what’s with tha dry-soundin’ beats? Tha hook sounds nice wit tha “shake that ass” shit… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s nice wit these orgasm sounds in tha background… And, tha 3rd verse ain’t bad, here; good shit… My Rating: 3.6

13. “Mr. Cashier”
>>> Anotha dry track, here… Not much fa me ta say, once again… My Rating: 3.1

14. “When I’m Gone, Then You Can Joke”
>>> This sounds betta… Beat iz a touch betta but I’m feelin’ how you comin’ through wit tha rhymes on tha 1st verse, here! Tha rest of this pretty nice; good effort… My Rating: 3.8

15. “I Gotta Shine And Get Mine (Radio Edit)”
See #8 fa tha review!

Overall: Most of tha production was dry, so tha tracks weren’t tha best… However, you came through on a good portion of tha rhymes, at least… I was diggin’ tha 12-minute track, too!
