Review #1,708: A.R. "Lit Wavy"

Reviewed on 4.24.2017 (Review #1,708)

Time for anotha review. I’m tryin’ to get some current Louisiana CD reviewz outta tha way… A few of these next ones came from tha near-end of last year and I just got them last month… Here goes my review for A.R. Lit Wavy, released on Str8 Up Entertainment & In Your Earhole Productions… Start Time: 8:59 AM | End Time: 9:40 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!

01. “Lit Wavy”
A C Dot James production, here… >>> Can tell exactly that this came from that night I was at tha Hookah Lounge, meetin’ up wit A.R.; definitely nice! Gotta love tha darker-soundin’ beat and this “lit”-soundin’ hook, ya dig? Also, comin’ through wit tha nice rhymes in tha 1st verse! And, keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, doin’ ya thang, as always! My Rating: 4.5

02. “Go Public”
D. Jackson doin’ tha beat; glad he still around! >>> Sounds good, here; feelin’ how this sounds in tha beat… Hearin’ how you comin’ through on tha 1st verse and it’s cool; nothin’ ta bitch about, of course… Tha hook sounds nice; gotta not “give a fuck how they feel,” ya dig? True…! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice; definitely lovin’ tha consistency! You have consistency in your rhymes, ya dig? Unstoppable! My Rating: 4.3

03. “Woah”
B Easy on this beat… >>> Still sounds unique to me, with how this sounds and how you come through on tha 1st verse wit these rhymes… And, nice wit tha hook and how tha rest of this sounds… Only 31 seconds remaining and you still keepin’ tha rhymes goin’! My Rating: 4.0

04. “That’s On Ya Body”
D. Jackson hookin’ “ya” up wit anotha one; lookin’ forward ta hear…! I have a feelin’ it gon be hyped-up? >>> Yeah, this sounds like a nice lil’ vibe; definitely diggin’ it! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you holdin’ it down, here; good shit! Sounds like you love your life; I love mines, too, except tha drama at my job!! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice, too; you got this on lock, here! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice, as well! You even made a reference to “Oochie Wally”, too; “that’s” A.R. for “ya!” My Rating: 4.3

05. “Ain’t My Business”
LTK on tha beat… >>> Sounds nice wit this beat; you got tha interestin’ production on lock, here! See, I call this ‘Baton Rouge music,’ regardless! It don’t have to be about poppin’ pillz; it just has to have that sound to it! Nice job wit how you comin’ through on tha hook, here; you know what you doin’! Tha 1st verse’s pretty nice and what you comin’ through with! Always ‘bout dat consistency! Love how I looked back on my blog to see how active you were throughout tha years… Every single year since 2007, you ain’t stop!! I checked somethin’ out of yours each year since 2008! 2016, I ain’t have anything but this CD’s from 2016, so that counts! My Rating: 4.2

06. “Fifty-Thousand”
Secret On Tha Track; wonder how long he can keep a “Secret,” lol? >>> Sounds like a good way to celebrate tha celebrity status? “My level fifty-thousand;” definitely! A smooth, more-laidback beat, here, but still cool… Definitely feelin’ tha 1st verse wit tha “64 Nintendo” shit, when it comes to tha “ol’ skool;” good shit! Definitely feelin’ what you bringin’ to tha table; gotta love tha rhymes! I have to say, there were times where I thought you were just decent and some tracks were ehh/not for me. However, I’m six tracks in and even on this slower shit, I still feel impressed to where it’s definitely poppin’, ya dig? My Rating: 4.1

½time: Definitely impressed, prolly more than tha past! A 4.2-rated CD for tha ½time; that’s dope!! Keep up tha consistent rhymes and err-thang you bringin’ to tha table, here!! Lemme look back at all tha previous ½times you had with me:

Out The Gate Pt. 2, back on 8.15.2009: 3.5

Tree-House (The Mixtape), back on 3.25.2011: 3.9
A+B+C = Da Formula (Hosted by DJ Chilly Chill), back on 6.05.2011: 4.4

I expected Da Formula one to be tha best but yeah, for a solo project, 4.2’s awesome!

07. “Do You & Good Luck”
Anotha beat from D, here! >>> Sounds good; feelin’ how you deliverin’ these rhymes on tha 1st verse! It’s almost like there’s infinity life in you, here! YB’s Don’t Die Wondering may’ve been tha 1st hard copy CD I got while I was in Louisiana, but your CD’s tha 1st one I got that I neva heard! Glad I paid you $5.00 for it; had to have it and you had to have my money, ya dig? Good hook, too; definitely feelin’ tha hype! Love how you comin’ through on tha 2nd verse, here; consistent shit, here! “Light shinin’ bright, techno;” dope shit! My Rating: 4.4

08. “Flex Flow”
D. Jackson on this one, too! >>> An interestin’ slow track, here; definitely feelin’ tha hook! Love how you deliverin’ tha 1st verse; you sound hiiiiiiiiigh or drunnnnnnnnnnnk here!! Love it!!! Now, tha regular voice of you and it sounds dope, too, wit what ya bringin’… Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice, too; good shit wit what you continuin’ to bring! My Rating: 4.5

09. “Redicoulus”
Interestin’ spellin’, here, with Secret On Tha Track on tha beat… >>> Sounds nice wit this laidback vibe, too; good hook, bro… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice wit how you comin’ through wit this night out… Keepin’ it movin’ with tha 2nd verse, too, keepin’ it movin’ wit this bitch… My Rating: 3.7

10. “Super Thugg’n”
D. Jackson doin’ this one, too; what can I expect? >>> Really smooth start, here; let’s see what’s good… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s anotha one dedicated to tha ladies… I’ono why, but I almost thought this was gon sound like a struggle from bein’ a young’n or somethin’… Tha hook ain’t too bad, here, as you’re continuin’ ta make this happen… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice, too; gotta respect it! I love how this sounds like it can have my back from my anxiety/bad vibes from my job! My Rating: 3.8

11. “Wannh”
Ooh @ tha title, produced by D. Jackson! >>> Sounds nice fa tha rhymes on tha 1st verse and how this beat sounds… Oh, a mix-up on tha CD, here? Tha back cover says that “Wannh”’s #08 & “Flex Flow”’s #11? This one sounds like that “Wannh”! Glad I caught that! I was gonna say, I almost thought when I heard #08, I was waitin’ for tha “wannh!” And yeah, I believe you performed this, too; I know you love tha “wannh!” When I do that to my co-workers, I wonder what they think, lol? Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice and consistent, too; gotta love ya! My Rating: 4.4

12. “Wake Up”
D. Jackson! >>> I was gonna say, I know I recognize this from my documentary I just put out/that night at tha club! And yeah, I remember this from tha Tree-House mixtape, right? I even remembered tha rating I gave it six years ago; crazy!! Not to mention, I reviewed it exactly six-years-and-one-day before I met you, lol! But yeah, tha review online still… My Current Rating: 4.1

13. “Who Got Shot?”
Endin’ with a D. Jackson beat, here… >>> Gotta luv that it reminds me of that night at tha club! Really feelin’ D’s beat, here! Tha 1st verse’s real tight wit your consistency, here! Tha hook’s definitely tha truth! Yeah, it sux wit what we’re dealin’ with! I had thought it had been quiet for a lil’ while and now, since I went down there, I heard about two shootings: King Joe, on April 4th & now, just Saturday, while I was goin’ through fuckin’ shit at my job, Zoe Realla, smh! I think I really lost it on Saturday; too much bullshit! But yeah, we all gotta be in this together! That’s why, I be comin’ down now to make peace wit err-body & know how valuable y’all are to me! With that bein’ said, keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ pretty nice, of course! My Rating: 4.4

Overall: I feel bad that I ain’t get to review this two dayz ago… I was goin’ through shit at my job, I stayed later & then, my visit to my homeboy who’s locked up was switched. So, I needed sleep and I neva got in tha mood to peep this out till today. Now, I have to say, you did tha damn thang throughout tha whole thang! Definitely worth my $5.00 in person, ya dig? Gotta love your consistent rhymes and how your vibes in tha tracks make tha production come to life! That’s right! Undaground life that we must always enjoy, ya dig?! Glad I been “rockin’ wit [you] since [you] were a teenager!” October 16, 2008, tha 1st time I heard ya! Beat Flippa’s Street Certified CD! You were 18 at tha time but we ain’t really connect till tha following year or so… Either way, now, I feel real glad I got to meet ya!!
