Review #1,698: YB "Don't Die Wondering"

Reviewed on 3.23.2017 (Review #1,698)

Happy 57th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs & only three more dayz till my dream comes true!! A bonus review aside from my Louisiana Reviewz Marathon, I have YB Don’t Die Wondering, here, released on Dirty Dinero Gang! Also, YB’s birthday’s this Saturday, March 25, tha day before my dream comes true! Shit’s amazing! For now, I’m lookin’ forward to gettin’ to this review! Start Time: 4:20 PM | End Time: 4:55 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!

© 2017 CD Review (Review #1,698) reviewed on 3.23.2017 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Pull Up” feat. Razy Ray
Time ta kick this one off!! >>> Sounds refreshin’ to hear new music! I’ve only reviewed one current Louisiana CD a month, so far this year! Definitely sounds refreshin’, here, wit tha production! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice, here; great shit from you, Y-Bizzle!! Your song, “Broski’s”, with Tazz, has become one of tha best songs I’ve played from Louisiana! Song reminds me of my broski, who’s currently locked up, in which I added tha track on his birthday, last year (September 9)! Definitely nice! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse, here, and it’s pretty nice; good shit! Gotta dig tha consistent, street shit you bringin’ to tha table, here! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty dope from Mr. Razy Ray, here; luv how he has a lot ta offer, here… My Rating: 4.3

02. “Fugazi” feat. Razy Ray
>>> I thought this sounded familiar; shout out to $hop With Ken… My Current Rating: 4.3

03. “Public Enemy”
>>> I like how this sounds, here; definitely a nice hook from you, here, over this beat… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you soundin’ nice wit this shit; gotta luv what you bring! Gotta luv what you bringin’ to tha 2nd verse on this beat, too; good shit to tha fullest!! My Rating: 4.2

04. “Get Up & Go Get It” feat. King Joe
>>> Comin’ through wit dem Ken beats, here; definitely nice! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice wit this motivated hook, of course! Gotta luv how you “go get it!” Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice wit what you’re comin’ through, here! Who don’t got “overtime,” right? Got Mr. Joe on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit consistent rhymes, but soundin’ decent ta me… My Rating: 4.0

05. “Birthplace”
Bwahahaha / ROFL! Definitely somethin’ classic, here!! Like it even more than I did!! My Current Rating: 4.9

½time: You doin’ yo shit, of course! Gotta luv havin’ new music from you!! Hope I get to meet you on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday!! A 4.3-rated CD, so far! Keep doin’ yo shit!

06. “Go Hard”
>>> This sounds nice, even tho I know this one, too… Still, definitely nice ta have some of these tracks on here! My Current Rating: 4.3

07. “Hunnit Man”
Bring it on! >>> Guss doin’ one of your beats, here… I’ono about tha start of tha plain-soundin’ beat, so far… Feels like I’ve heard this before…? Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s decent, here… Rhymes are ehh/what anyone can spit but I always love when you rap… And, tha 2nd verse ain’t that bad, here; decent wit what you bringin’… My Rating: 3.7

08. “Child So Bad” feat. JM Larry & S4 Lil’ Mike
I’m lookin’ forward ta hearin’ this one; bring it!! >>> Sounds like a nice lil’ gangsta-soundin’ beat, here, includin’ this lil’ sample in tha beginning… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s nice from you, holdin’ shit down! Tha hook’s nice wit tha sample; definitely dope wit how we’ve evolved in life! Good shit comin’ outta tha 2nd verse, here, strictly keepin’ it Rouge fa tha Rouge! And, good shit comin’ outta tha 3rd verse, too; definitely nice wit tha voice/content/delivery! My Rating: 4.3

09. “Swing My Door” feat. King Joe
>>> Not bad beat, here; decent lil’ hook… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you rappin’ fast, here; crazy shit… And, tha hook ain’t that bad, here; just luvin’ tha new Louisiana music…! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse from King Joe and it’s nice; just keep rappin’… My Rating: 3.7

10. “Ballin’ Hard”
>>> More Ken tracks… Tha beat sounds like it’s a high feelin’ to embrace, or somethin’? Nice lil’ 1st verse, here… Tha hook sounds nice ta hear, even tho sometimes, I feel like it sounds mainstream… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and I’m likin’ how you sound a lil’ more upbeat in your voice, here… Almost thought there was gon be a 3rd verse but it’s close to a minute of an outro, here… My Rating: 3.9

11. “Long Way” feat. Dinero Costello
>>> Sounds like it gon be anotha nice Ken beat, but my mind keeps throwin’ me off, as if I heard some of these tracks, already… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s good, but betta once you say tha title part! That 2nd ½ of tha hook nice…! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you “come from tha bottom like grass,” lol! Nice job wit what you bringin’ to tha table, here… Hearin’ Dinero on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some catchy rhymes; can’t deny ‘em… My Rating: 4.1

Overall: Other than “Birthplace”’s extraordinary rating, there weren’t really any crazy-ass ratings. However, definitely tha selection of bangerz, here! Good shit, YB! Always hope you do music all day, err-day!!
