Review #1,681: Juvenile "400 Degreez"

Reviewed on 3.13.2017 (Review #1,681)

Happy 47th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs & only 13 more dayz till my dream comes true!! How about a 4th review today? Ready to “back” our asses “up” with Juvenile 400 Degreez, lol, released in 1998 on Cash Money Records & Universal Records & was produced by Mannie Fresh! Start Time: 4:27 PM | End Time: 5:39 PM

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!

Luved tha beat sounds before Wayne’s verse, too!! Gizzle’s soundin’ decent on tha 3rd verse, as well… My Rating: 4.3

>>> Sounds nice wit Wayne (I think it’s Wayne) in tha beginning, here… Definitely a catchy-ass 1st verse, here, blingin’ ‘em out!! Tha hook’s definitely dope! Woulda been a favorite if I woulda discovered it at a 10-year-old! Can’t believe at this time, I was rememberin’ err-body’s birthdayz! Now, at almost 29, I’m still dat dude!! Anyway, keepin’ it movin’ wit you on tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ pretty nice, too… And, yeah, Turk’s on tha 3rd verse, here (tha ID’s outta order), soundin’ nice ta hear, too… Keepin’ it movin’ wit Paparue (Papa Reu) on tha 4th verse, comin’ through wit some catchy-soundin’ shit… Definitely a nice lil’ different voice ta do tha damn thang, here… My Rating: 4.4

13. “Back That Azz Up” feat. Mannie Fresh & Lil’ Wayne
Bwahahahahahahahhaha!!! I can’t imagine if this was just a lil’ review, back in tha day, what would it’ve turned into? One of tha biggest Louisiana songs of all-time? I notice that tha intro was not like tha mainstream one… Of course, still catchy as fuck wit you in tha beginning, here, on tha 1st verse! Err-body ate up all that “yeah” shit, just like tha “Ha”s! Of course, dope hook! Still can’t believe how mainstream this was “for tha ’99 & tha 2000!” Great shit on tha 2nd verse from you, too! So much throughout this song! I remember movin’ to Pennsylvania for tha 1st time during ’99 – ’00, lol, and I used to always hear this! I used to be like, “I like this,” but neva thought how big it was meant ta be! Who woulda thought Louisiana would take over my life from 2007 on! Just with my walkman, tha radio, ridin’ in my stepdad’s jeep & goin’ through tha woods! Gotta luv it! I built my way to tha abandoned areas, now! Still got tha hikes goin’ on, too! And yeah, Fresh sounds nice on tha 3rd verse & so does Wayne on tha 4th verse! Wayne with tha boost! I knew he was gon be somethin’!! My Current Rating: 4.5

14. “Off Top” feat. Big Tymers
>>> Sounds like an okay beat fa tha hood, here… Almost thought it was gon be dry but then, Fresh adds his sounds to it… Good shit comin’ from you on tha 1st verse, here, as I enjoy tha premiere spin of SeeB & R. City feat. Chloe Angelides “Under Your Skin” on Music Choice Dance, here!! Hearin’ tha hook to this song and it sounds nice ta hear; good shit… Hearin’ Baby on tha 2nd verse, here, and he’s got tha hood “on lock,” here; good shit! He was near 30/30, here! Lol, Fresh always in tha mood fa dem “bitches,” no matter what track it iz! Endin’ it with “pimpalicious;” my term endings!! My Rating: 3.8

15. After Cash Money Concert
>>> Sounds like it’s thunderin’ or somethin’? Odd ending… My Rating: N/A

16. “400 Degreez”
>>> Sounds catchy, here; nice 1st verse goin’ on, here… I’m diggin’ how tha beat becomes digital or somethin’, too; good shit! Nice job wit tha 2nd verse, too; gotta dig what you spittin’! Luv how tha hook’s that digital shit!! Got tha 3rd verse, here, soundin’ nice ta hear, too, as you keep it goin’… My Rating: 4.3

17. “Juvenile On Fire”
>>> Diggin’ tha jammin’ beat from Fresh, here! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice, here; good shit! Tha hook sounds catchy, here, even tho a lil’ random-soundin’? And, tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice, here, too; good shit… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 3rd verse, here, continuin’ ta do tha damn thang… And, tha rest of this pretty nice; a “bitch”-fuckin’ ending, lol… My Rating: 4.1

18. “Ha (Remix)” feat. Jay-Z
Anotha remix? >>> Nice addition from Jay-Z, here, even tho I’m not crazy about him… My Rating: 4.3

Overall: Definitely a dope CD, here! Fresh did tha damn thang on tha beats and I’m glad you found so much success wit this CD! And, even today, you’re still goin’! Only just turned 40, like, two years ago, too! Ageless!!
