Review #1,686: King George Presents "Concrete Jungle"

Reviewed on 3.16.2017 (Review #1,686)

Happy 50th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs & only 10 more dayz till my dream comes true!! Still dealin’ with tha bad snowstorm but hopefully, it’s almost over! Here goes my next review: King George Presents Concrete Jungle, released in 1998 on WRAP Records, Me & Mine Entertainment & Highness Records! Looks like a compilation… Start Time: 1:51 AM | End Time: 2:51 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. King George “Introduction”
>>> Sounds nice but I’ono what I’m in for… My Rating: N/A

02. King George feat. Side Industry & Gene-O “Concrete Jungle”
Nick Peace & Black Diamond production… >>> Nice lil’ beginning, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like a nice lil’ laidback, West Coast-soundin’ joint, here… And, tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ decent, too; not much fa me ta say… And, tha 3rd verse’s aight, too… My Rating: 3.7

03. Mr. Doctor feat. Brotha Lynch Hung & Foe Loco “40 Oz & Chronic Dice”
A Brother Lynch Hung production… >>> Sounds nice wit this hauntin’ beat, here; good shit on tha 1st verse… Tha rest of this sounds nice ta hear, too; good shit… My Rating: 4.1

04. D-Flexx feat. King George “Mad At The World”
Hacim production… >>> Sounds a lil’ familiar but it sounds nice, here, between tha hook and production… Nice job wit tha 1st verse wit this West Coast/southern vibe y’all comin’ with, here… Tha 2nd verse sounds nice ta hear, too; let’s keep this goin’… And, tha 3rd verse ain’t too bad, here… It’s on a nice, gangsta level but this production/tha voice ain’t tha best fa me ta hear… My Rating: 3.8

05. Legend Man “Thug With Me”
M. Watson beat; ugh!! That last name!!! >>> Decent beat; tha hook’s nice wit this female singin’ but I’m not in tha mood for it… Tha 1st verse ain’t that bad, here; decent… Tha 2nd verse ain’t that bad wit tha continuous rhymin’, here… Tha 3rd verse ain’t that bad, as well; not really in tha mood fa this, tho… My Rating: 3.7

06. Hugo Boss feat. Young C Major & Levitti “Ryder 4 Life”
Phil Armstrong beat… >>> Sounds like a silly hook, here, with a nice lil’ West Coast vibe… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s decent wit this West Coast-y voice… And, we got tha 2nd verse comin’ along, here, soundin’ nice ta hear… And, that West Coast-y sound continues with tha 3rd verse, here, soundin’ nice, too… My Rating: 3.8

07. Mississippi Kingpin feat. Playa Playa & Sandy Claus “Word On The Street”
Sandy Claus beat… >>> Kinda boring, here? Plain-soundin’ beat and tha 1st verse’s ehh… Hearin’ tha hook and I love how it’s about gossip! Still, I dunno how much I feel it, tho… Tha 2nd verse iz good, here; can’t complain about it… And, tha 3rd verse’s here, soundin’ straight… A lil’ bit of chantin’ wards at tha end, here… My Rating: 3.5

½time: More on a decent level but tha average CD rating’s a 3.8, so far, so it’s not bad, here…

08. Da Milkman “Da Beast”
Self-produced track, here… >>> Nice, dark beat but just a decent 1st verse, here… Tha rest of this ain’t bad; good shit… My Rating: 3.8

09. Legend Man “Thy Heavenly Father”
R. Jackson beat… >>> Decent beat with not much ta offer… Let’s see what tha rhymes gon offer, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s okay but nothin’ special… I thought this was gon be more depressing but we’re a lil’ above-average, at tha moment… Tha hook’s a random lil’ screwed-soundin’ message, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and this dude’s keepin’ it goin’, here… My Rating: 3.4

10. Mississippi Kingpin feat. Playa Playa & Sandy Claus “Game Makes The World Go Round”
Playa Playa beat… >>> Diggin’ tha southern sound in tha beat, here; true, cold undaground at its finest! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice ta hear; dope shit… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s okay with this female singin’… Tha 2nd verse sounds rapid; good shit… And, we got tha 3rd verse, here, soundin’ nice ta hear wit this gutta voice, once again… My Rating: 3.9

11. Sisko feat. Court Dog (CCG) “Siccs Deep”
Sisko production… >>> Anotha dry beat, here… However, tha hook’s pretty nice, here; good shit y’all got! Tha 1st verse’s pretty nice wit this faster-soundin’ rappin’; good shit! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice, too; gotta feel what y’all got, here… And, a 3rd verse, soundin’ nice ta hear, too… My Rating: 4.0

12. Da Milkman feat. K-Dubb “Slide”
A Milkman production… >>> Decent hook but anotha dry, boring-soundin’ beat, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds quiet… Only thang I can say iz, nice fa an undaground vibe… Tha 2nd verse sounds kinda quiet, too; I’ont get tha quietness… I have no more feedback; too quiet! My Rating: 3.1

13. PCO “Fiending”
Cedsing production… >>> Almost thought it was E-40 on tha 1st verse, here… Anotha boring-soundin’ beat and an okay-soundin’ 1st verse… I’m not really into tha vocals; some of tha voices on this CD ain’t really fa me… I know King George ain’t a Louisiana artist so I can see how tha Louisiana vibes are missin’ from this compilation/CD… Tha 2nd verse and tha rest of this ain’t for me; sounds too random! Next!! My Rating: 2.9

14. Tripple Beam “Life Your Hood”
A Tripple Beam beat… >>> What’s with tha boring, quiet beats??? Just sounds decent, here, but why 4:34?? Not much ta say; decent/below average… My Rating: 3.3

15. The Mob “The Mob”
D. Knighten beat… >>> Sounds like a weird, cool-soundin’ West Coast track, here… This sounds good but more on tha decent tip, once again… I’ont need ta say anythang else about this… It’s decent; props for tryin’, even tho, why 5:36?? My Rating: 3.5

Overall: Most of this was decent but then again, tha vibes weren’t really for me… Only two 4.0’s; pathetic!
