Review #1,727: SBP (South Bound Players) "Fantasy 1: Superior Minds"

Reviewed on 5.27.2017 (Review #1,727)

As I’m terrified for tha next work day, I figure, lemme try and slow time down by gettin’ back into some reviewz! This next one, straight outta Opelousas, iz SBP (South Bound Players) Fantasy 1: Superior Minds, released in 1998 on Harmabee Records! Start Time: 1:36 AM | End Time: 2:25 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. “Put Your Hands Up”
>>> Sounds like a smooth lil’ undaground track…; decent hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s nice what y’all bringin’… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ pretty nice, too… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse, here, and…, “Attract more eyes than a bat,” eh? Lol… Tha 2nd ½ of tha 3rd verse has a lil’ more of a deeper voice, here, soundin’ good, too… My Rating: 3.8

02. “What’s The Future For Me”
>>> A smoother, G-Funk-soundin’ track, here; anotha nice one… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it has them real-life rhymes fa tha “ghetto,” here… A long 1st verse but luckily, y’all rhymes sound good… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s a simple hook; nothin’ else ta say… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice, as well… My Rating: 3.7

03. “Black & White”
>>> A nice lil’ slow, gangsta-soundin’ track, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice, here… Tha hook’s pretty nice, here; feelin’ tha gangsta surroundings, here… And, tha rest of this pretty dope, too; can’t complain… My Rating: 3.7

04. “Face 2 Face”
>>> “September 25, 1979” iz tha birthday, eh? Seems young…; only 37, today… Just realized that tha day iz on tha front cover, too… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice wit these bein’-born facts… Beat’s nice and slow fa tha ‘90s, too, of course… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice, here, bein’ “face 2 face with” err-thang… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ good, too… Yeah, I’m bein’ “face 2 face” wit short-handedness!! Ugh!!! At least it’s tha one o’clock hour, right now! It ain’t no 4:00, yet!! Tha rest of this pretty nice ta hear, too; good shit… My Rating: 4.0

05. “The Otherside”
>>> Sounds like an eerie, gangsta beat, here; good shit… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice; dope, eerie vibe! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and this shit pretty gutta ova this beat… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ nice, too… As tha verse goes on, it becomes a lil’ catchier and more consistent; definitely nice! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it’s anotha nice verse, too… My Rating: 3.9

½time: A nice lil’ CD, so far; can’t complain… Feelin’ tha undaground vibes wit some decent rhymes… A 3.8-rated CD; let’s get it!

06. “Life Has No Meaning”
>>> Sounds like a good 1st verse, here, ova this beat… Diggin’ tha hook, here, with this meaningless “life” we be livin’ in; good shit… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s nice, too; crazy shit… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it sounds a lil’ random, at first? Why censored words, smh?? My Rating: 3.8

07. “Fantasy”
>>> Hearin’ this beat and it’s straight, like tha otha ones… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice, too… Tha deeper-soundin’ dude’s on tha 2nd part, spittin’ some nice shit fa tha undaground, here… Tha 3rd dude’s soundin’ nice wit these flashy rhymes; gotta dig it… Tha 4th dude ain’t too bad, here, soundin’ like dude gon have a nice future… Tha 5th dude (dude or part) sounds nice, especially as it goes on! Best verse on tha track wit this rapid-fire, consistent-ass rappin’!! Then again, no hook to transition this? My Rating: 3.6

08. “Keep It Real”
>>> Anotha decent track and hook, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s nice ta hear, here… “Still down in my hood like potatoes…,” eh? I can dig it… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ like an okay verse… And, a 3rd verse, here, soundin’ like a good representation of y’all section of Louisiana, here… Tha rest of tha rappin’ toward tha end flows nicely fa tha ‘90s, here… My Rating: 3.7

09. “Another Life, Another Place”
>>> A slower track, here…; hook sounds catchy, too… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s nice; can’t complain… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s not bad, too; kinda seems like a long track, tho? It’s 5:41… Tha 3rd verse soundin’ bland… Just sounds like dry rappin’ wit a dry beat, here… My Rating: 3.4

10. “Blowing In The Wind”
>>> I’ono, I’m not anticipatin’ a slow, depressin’ track, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and yeah, these lyrics ain’t fa me… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s ehh; whateva @ this… Tha 2nd verse’s ehh, too; nothin’ fa me ta say… I can agree wit tha 3rd verse, here: “I dunno when it’s my time. So, I decided to write rhymes;” that’s tha spirit! My Rating: 2.3

Overall: Not that crazy wit tha ratings, here, but most of tha tracks were still good… I just thought this was a decent, undaground product, ya dig?
