Review #1,693: Lil' Slim "Franchise Player"

Reviewed on 3.20.2017 (Review #1,693)

Happy 54th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs & only six more dayz till my dream comes true!! Now, I have my 3rd review for today: Lil’ Slim Franchise Player, released in 1998 on Franchise Player Entertainment & was produced by Lil’ Slim, himself! Start Time: 4:42 PM | End Time: 5:05 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!

Link To CD: N/A

01. “Self-Made Nigga” feat. Bad Fellas
Let’s hear it!! >>> Sounds pretty nice wit this beat, here; good shit! Anticipatin’ tha track from this intro, here! Sounds nice wit tha 1st verse, here… Not much goin’ on wit tha hook, here; it aight… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s not bad, here… Still soundin’ decent with tha 3rd verse, here; can’t say much… My Rating: 3.7

02. “Bitches & Niggs”
>>> Sounds like an okay beat, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s not bad, here… Most of tha shit I’ve been hearin’ on this CD’s been on a decent level, even tho I’m only four total verses into this CD, lol… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s decent; kinda flows with tha 1st verse without a transition, tho… Prolly coulda sounded a lil’ betta but anyway, here comes tha 2nd verse, spittin’ some facts… Nice wit what you’re spittin’ but some of it’s draggin’ and gettin’ borin’, fa me… My Rating: 3.5

03. “Talking Sporty Woty”
>>> Anotha one that sounds decent, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s aight wit what you’re spittin’… It seems like you had betta music before this, tho, so this just an okay CD, so far… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s decent ta hear… Decent shit comin’ outta tha 2nd verse, too; not much ta say… Tha rest of this just drags…; I’m endin’ it short… My Rating: 3.1

½time: A 3.4-rated CD, so far… I’ono, maybe it’s ‘cause I had a situation go on, yesterday that I’m not in tha mood fa this shit, right now… Then again, most of this shit I’ve been reviewin’s been decent…

04. “Stop Reppin’”
>>> Sounds like a decent beat, here; I’ono about this voice goin’ on wit tha hook… What tha hell this different, uncredited voice iz? Not really too crazy about it, on tha 1st verse… Yeah, I can’t take this serious! I don’t even wanna hear tha rest…! My Rating: 2.3

05. “Talkin’ Crazy”
>>> I hear tha beat sample in tha background, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s not bad, so far… Tha good thing iz, this track’s short so I ain’t gotta worry about it too much… Still, nothin’ really poppin’ wit this one… My Rating: 3.0

06. “Lame Niggas Get Hunted” feat. Maximus & D-Boy
>>> Tha hook has some good gangsta shit ta offer, but it don’t sound like it’s that serious… Like, I’m not used to this voice or somethin’? Beat’s kinda plain, too… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s decent; can’t say much… Tha 2nd verse kinda ehh, too; I don’t feel tha Louisiana sound in tha voice… Almost sounds like a southern Ma$e or somethin’! And, as we slowly get this review finished, tha 3rd verse’s decent, as well… As tha voices continue ta get random, we got tha 4th verse… Ugh! It almost sounds like it’s off-beat or somethin’! My Rating: 2.4

Overall: I ain’t really fuck wit this CD, overall… Kinda glad that there weren’t too many jointz, but nothin’ really was poppin’, here… I’ono, I thought you came through betta than this but this iz how this turned out… Also, I was hopin’ this wasn’t gonna end at 5:04, in honor of tha New Orleans area code! However, by one second, it ended at 5:05! What sour luck, lol!!

Average CD Rating Review:

Total Score:                      18.0
Total Songs:                      / 06
Average CD Rating: 3.0

I hate to think that this tha worst review outta every one I’ve done in tha Louisiana Reviewz Marathon, for a rap CD? I know an R&B CD was really bad, but this gotta be tha lowest-rated one for a rap one…
