Review #1,704: King Joe "King Almighty (Hosted by DJ Scrap)"

Reviewed on 4.21.2017 (Review #1,704)

As I have my mornings for my old Louisiana CD reviewz, tha other parts of tha rest of April gon be some current CD reviewz. Most of these upcoming CD reviewz gon be tha CDs I got from artists/Way 3000. However, this first one, I downloaded ‘cause of how dude got killed, right when I got back from my vacation. Sponsored by Dirty Dinero Band Camp, here goes my review for King Joe King Almighty (Hosted by DJ Scrap)! This my tribute video fa King Joe: Start Time: 5:47 PM | End Time: 6:33 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 #1,704) reviewed on 4.21.2017 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Open Dope”
>>> Nice intro from Scrap, here; glad there was a connection… Beat kinda reminds me of YB & Tazz’s “Broski’s” with that sound that comes every four bars… However, this beat kinda plain… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s ehh… I’ono how much I can feel this… Just sounds like typical, mainstream-soundin’ shit ta me… Only thang that has, like, a Louisiana vibe fa me iz your voice… Tha hook ain’t bad; let’s continue… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds a lil’ betta wit how you consistently deliver it. Still, nothin’ too special, here… My Rating: 3.4

02. “Good Die Young” feat. Looney & Nino
>>> I’ono, but Scrap on this intro sounds like this was made after you died. However, this was released on March 5… I have to say, this beat’s a lil’ betta than tha previous one… I’m feelin’ tha way tha sounds go, especially that whistle… Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds nice… I’m not a fan of depressing songs but this hook’s nice wit how y’all dealin’ wit shit… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t that bad; good job wit this… Tha 2nd verse sounds like tha same dude who’s on tha hook, here… A decent job wit contributin’, holdin’ it down… And, tha 3rd verse’s pretty nice, here; gangsta shit, here… My Rating: 3.7

03. “Nobody” feat. Looney & YB
YB!! >>> Sounds like jacked-beat shit? Tha hook can be catchy but I’ono how much I can seriously fuck wit it… If I think of it soundin’ like a jacked beat (can’t think of it, at tha moment—Future song?), then just consider that it sounds like tha same shit that’s out on tha radio, these dayz… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I ain’t feelin’ tha voice; no need for an effect! Lack of interest, here… Keepin’ it movin’ wit YB on tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ much betta/much-more normal! Gotta luv all tha consistent rhymes! “My heart iz Sub Zero ‘cause it’s below zero;” good shit! See, if this whole entire CD had verses like YB’s verse on this, it would sound much betta! I wouldn’t mind him, no matter what tha tracks sounded like! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it don’t hold tha same weight as YB… Just reminds me that YB on this CD iz equivalent to how I hold my job down like no other! Almost thought my rating was gon be near tha 2.0’s, but YB saved tha vibe… Also, I remember that “back then, I was a nobody,” too! My Rating: 3.8

04. “Problems” feat. Vis
>>> A decent start but I yawn in my head when I hear nothin’ but “money” this, “money” that. Like, example: YB ‘bout his money, but his incredible verse on tha last song ain’t have “money, money, money” this; “money, money, money” that! With that bein’ said, tha 1st verse’s ehh/not bad… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s nice. I’ono why, but your voice on here sometimes reminds me of A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s ehh, as well; can’t cling on too well… My Rating: 3.5

05. “Fuck Nigga” feat. Lee Banks
>>> Wow, this sounds like YB music, here, on tha hook/beat/vibe! Definitely much betta than tha shit on this CD, so far! Let’s see how tha verses go… Okay, much betta from you on tha 1st verse, here! You got tha YB flow goin’ on, here, without bullshit “money” obsessions! Luv all tha consistency, here! Luved when I seen YB & Razy Ray perform at tha Hookah Lounge, last month. I heard tha consistency come out in tha rhymes, especially in Razy Ray’s appearance; shit was dope! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice, here; good shit from Lee Banks! Nice collab, here; this was your golden collab! My Rating: 4.2

06. “Fan2X” feat. NuNu James
>>> “NuNu got tha beat…” Beat straight, I guess? Hearin’ tha 1st verse from NuNu and it sounds betta than usual… I’m glad it ain’t borin’ me even tho it only aight… Tha hook catchy, but decent at its finest… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s not so bad, as well; good shit, y’all… My Rating: 3.6

½time: Mostly decent, here, but I’m feelin’ tha collaborations more than anythang… A 3.7-rated CD, currently…

07. “Blitz” feat. Nino & NBA Lil’ Pap
>>> Sounds decent wit this beat and hook… Likin’ tha title part and how it repeats, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like ‘90s babies gangsta shit, here… Here comes tha 2nd verse, soundin’ decent, here, from Nino… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it sounds good from this NBA dude… I think he gon have a good future; nice 1st contribution… My Rating: 3.8

08. “Get The Bitness” feat. Willie & Nino
>>> Sounds like a decent beat and 1st verse goin’ on, here… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ nice ta hear… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 3rd verse and it’s ehh… Nothin’ too special, here; just a contribution from Nino… My Rating: 3.5

09. “Headshot” feat. NuNu James
>>> Not anticipatin’ tha intro wit tha “R&B shit,” here… Yeah, you can keep this, Scrap. Can’t say it’s awful but I don’t think it’s tha best vibe, here… Tha hook ain’t too bad, here… Oh, rappin’ on tha 1st verse? Really throwin’ me off, this time… Kinda yada-yada-yada… Tha rest of this goes with tha track’s vibe, itself; can’t say too much… My Rating: 3.1

10. “My Own” feat. J Beezy
>>> Beat’s plain but tha hook sounds nice from J Beezy, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and tha beginning reminds me of a familiar rap song’s flow… Hearin’ tha rest of tha verse and it’s decent… I’ono, nothin’ too strikin’ wit tha rhymes but tha vibe’s nice… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ decent, too; can’t complain… My Rating: 3.4

11. “Laid Back” feat. Dice
>>> This sounds like a betta beat, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you sound good wit how you comin’ through wit some of these rhymes from tha southern hood… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice! “Sippin’ lean, smokin’ kush;” nice! Why it ain’t look like too many peeps were “sippin’ lean,” while I was in BR? I ain’t see any “lean” down there… And, tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad, here; nice collab… My Rating: 3.7

12. “Sales” feat. J Beezy & Looney
>>> We have a $hop With Ken beat, finally? Let’s see what’s good, here… Beat kinda plain, tho, but let’s see how this vibe goes… Hearin’ tha hook and it sounds like you have tha life of tha Baton Rouge streetz, here, fa a ‘90s baby; nice… Consistent rappin’ on tha 1st verse, here, soundin’ nice ta hear… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice ta hear, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds good, but in its own way… At times, it may not be too special for me to appreciate but it’s still nice wit how it was delivered… My Rating: 3.6

13. “Trap Star” feat. Looney
>>> This ain’t too bad ta end it off… Beat ain’t too bad and tha 1st verse sounds like you’re continuously on ya grind, as always… And, tha 2nd verse’s pretty consistent, here; likin’ it betta than tha 1st! My Rating: 3.7

Overall: Most of this was decent; only one track a 4.0+! Definitely needed betta-soundin’ beats than tha typical-soundin’ shit that be out, these dayz… Some of tha content was ehh but hey, this was a start that was ‘pose to continue into somethin’… R.I.P. King Joe…
