Review #1,679: II Loaded "Don't Play No Games!"

Reviewed on 3.13.2017 (Review #1,679)

Happy 47th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs & only 13 more dayz till my dream comes true!! Keepin’ these reviewz goin’ with II Loaded Don’t Play No Games!, released in 1998 on DangerZone Entertainment & was produced by Merrill “Real Roc” Robinson! Start Time: 6:39 AM | End Time: 7:19 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!

05. “Fuck Whutcha ‘Bout”

08. “Us Niggaz”
>>> A slower vibe, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds like a random lil’ Juvenile-like sound, here; nice… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like you got this shit on lock fa tha hood, here… And, we got tha 2nd verse, here, with a “Patricia,” lol? Startin’ ta sound a lil’ slow, here… Let’s see what we got wit tha 3rd verse, here… Aight, a lil’ “greedy,” but at tha same time, “on a come-up,” of course… My Rating: 4.0

½time: A 4.3-rated CD, so far; great production, great how you comin’ through wit it and nice appearance from JMD!

09. “Do You Believe”
>>> Not really feelin’ tha typical “my soul to keep” shit, on tha hook; heard it plenty of times… Either way, this a nice-soundin’ beat, here, wit these sounds… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice, here; good shit… Almost sounds like a random-soundin’ 2nd verse, here, but it ain’t that bad, here… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it’s soundin’ kinda random, here… Ehh, I’ono, just randomly spittin’ shit? My Rating: 3.8

10. “Project Hoez”
>>> Sounds aight, here; not bad wit tha 1st verse and what you’re comin’ through with, here… Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds quiet? Why do some of these vocals start soundin’ quieter, as I get more and more into tha CD? Hearin’ tha 2nd verse, here, and it’s not too bad, as well… My Rating: 3.7

11. “Fare Well Boyz R.I.P.”
>>> A lil’ slow, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you statin’ some facts, here, even tho I’m not big about “R.I.P.” tracks… Oh no, not a “Missing You”-remade hook…; ehh… Tha rest of this ain’t too bad, here; decent shit… My Rating: 3.4

12. “Thuggin’-N-Public”
>>> Can be good but sounds like a bunch of fast rappin’, here; I’ono… Nice “Girbauds” and “fresh kicks” shit, tho… Tha hook sounds pretty dope, here! “Fuckin’ right, fuckin’ right! We be thuggin’ in public!” Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and you got some nice shit goin’ on, here; good shit! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it gives me a C-Murder-type vibe, here; good shit! My Rating: 4.4

13. “Swervin’” (JMD)
JMD solo joint!! >>> Sounds like it gon be a tight joint, here; definitely diggin’ tha hook! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like JMD comin’ through wit some nice shit, here… A lotta random rappin’, here? Still, it’s nice ta hear… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and JMD got some nice shit on lock, here… I know of this bein’ JMD ‘cause on March 7, 2014, I got a hold of him and he was givin’ me tha rundown of thangz… My Rating: 4.2
