Review #1,738: Young Carter "A Dog Wit No Collar"

Reviewed on 7.03.2017 (Review #1,738)

Just got a CD in tha mail… Met this dude last Sunday right near my hotel, in Baton Rouge, LA: Young Carter, str8 outta Simmesport, LA, A Dog Wit No Collar, released on Lilskeet Entertainment! Can’t wait ta hear! Been fuckin’ wit Carter since tha beginning of 2012, when Morganza, LA rapper, P.I.R., let me know more about him… That time, during tha release of his “Strictly ‘Bout Paper” track, it was with Legal Dope Records. I later got connected wit him. Now, five years later, we got this release! Can’t wait ta hear! Hope Carter continues to do his thang at all times! Tha 1982 – 1984 babies are my leaders!! Start Time: 3:03 PM | End Time: 4:09 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!

And, saved you fa last, right chea, on tha 3rd verse, strictly stayin’ focused! I may’ve only met up witchu tha one day but can only imagine kickin’ it witchu for an hour or so, one day. Prolly gon be a good experience; gotta be in a great zone! Props fa always stayin’ focused and doin’ ya thang! My Rating: 4.5

Let’s see what y’all gon bring to tha table, right chea… >>> Kinda diggin’ how this sounds… Kinda diggin’ this Eddie B singer on tha hook wit this beat… Good shit goin’ on throughout tha 1st verse from Carter, here… Glad you always treat yourself and hold yaself down! That’s what makes a good artist like you survive in this game, ya dig? Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice, just holdin’ shit down… Just luv your hustle and how you have quality in these tracks! That just makes me randomly think, like, “What happened to your 2012 upcoming release, Strictly ‘Bout The Paper, tha album?” Regardless, we got you now, live in effect!! Hearin’ tha last 41 seconds and it’s a beat outro; good shit… My Rating: 4.3

05. “Out My Body”
Solo Carter, here… >>> Definitely likin’ tha start a whole lot wit this production! Glad you got tha pureness! Luv how this came in tha mail while I was high (first CD to eva come in tha mail while I was in my zone?) and that’s how I’m reviewin’ it, right nah! Definitely feelin’ tha hook and just luv how you be gettin’ fucked up! Oh, we gotta have ourselves a gettin’-fucked-up night, ya dig? Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I’m definitely feelin’ err-thang you be on, ya dig? You got tha big birthday next month; go turn up fa ya boy!! Great job wit what you bringin’ to tha track, right chea! Louisiana got dat gumbo!! Luv what you bringin’ to tha table on tha 2nd verse, right chea! Lol, “I’m on dat Budweiser;” sounds funny ‘cause of my family drankin’ that… That was tha 1st thang I done seen, lol… Great shit, of course! Gotta luv tha more you “out [yo] body!” My Rating: 4.7

06. “Bars For Days”
Which “bars,” lol, lol, lol?!? >>> Only 1:44 on tha length? Feelin’ tha near-instant start… And, as far as these “bars” (rhymes), I’m definitely likin’ how you sound on tha hook (“I got bars for days…!”); good shit! Hearin’ you on tha verse and you holdin’ shit down wit yo personality and grind; fuckin’ lovin’ it! Almost reminds me of Young Dolph’s voice, at times, lol… Just luv your grind; gotta “eat!” And, anotha hook; dumb shit! My Rating: 4.5

07. “Dope Man”
Gotta keep it movin’! >>> Anotha nice lil’ beat intro, here; good shit… Hearin’ tha hook and I’m still feelin’ tha grind to tha fullest! Lol @ tha “I got that Rolls Royce on tha block;” dope shit! Just gotta luv feelin’ like a celeb! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you got shit goin’ on, right chea! You just know how ta be aggressive on tha tracks, but wit dat southern quality! Tha quality you gotta dig for, ya dig? So much ta offer throughout these “bars for days,” ya dig? My Rating: 4.3

½time: I think this a consistent-soundin’, quality-soundin’ release, right chea! You definitely keepin’ this golden, undaground music of Louisiana comin’ along wit your rhymes and your grind! A 4.5-rated CD, so far; let’s continue this, right chea!

08. “City Lights” feat. Triv P, C-T.H.U.G. & Eddie B
Keepin’ it movin’… >>> Sounds like a decent lil’ track, here… Damn, it’s 6:12! Hmm… Tha hook ain’t too bad and you on tha 1st verse’s not too bad… Sounds like you got this relaxin’ music on lock, right chea… Not just a relaxin’ mood but a celeb-like vibe, too, wit what you spittin’ ‘bout tha “paint” and err-thang else… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ like a faster flow but at tha same time, it just decent… I don’t see too much ear-catchiness wit tha verse but it iz what it iz, I guess? And, we continuin’ wit tha 3rd verse, right chea, soundin’ a lil’ betta wit this grind… Feelin’ tha slightly-aggressive voice, here… My Rating: 3.6

09. “What’s Beef”
Bring it on…! It’s turk…ey! Lol! >>> I have a feelin’ I might fuck wit this, even tho it sound a lil’ like a mainstream-like beat start? Yeah, kinda mainstream but I’m definitely feeli’n what you spittin’ in tha hook (“What’s beef (what’s beef?)? It’s strictly for dinner…” “What’s beef (what’s beef?)? It’s tha shit that I eat!”)! Carter runnin’ thangz!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse wit what you bringin’ and it good… More on tha decent, mainstream-type level vs. tha undaground, Louisiana-type level… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse, right chea… Just gotta feel how you keepin’ tha “bars” comin’… “fa dayz!” I think I’m feelin’ this a lot more, just thinkin’ ‘bout dat hook, lol! My Rating: 4.4

10. “Bad Intentions” (Young Carter & Komplexxx)
A collaboration together, I see? Let’s see, here… >>> Oh, I’m feelin’ this melodic intro or whateva you wanna call it… Lol, “my mind trippin’,” too ‘cause tha back cover spells “Intentions” right, vs. tha mp3 info on iTunes (“Intensions,” lol?)! But yeah, nice lil’ collaboration-like hook! Hearin’ tha 1st verse from Komplexxx and dude soundin’ dope, here, like tha “dope” he spittin’ about on tha track! Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse, right chea and it’s soundin’ nice wit “what [you] gotta do!” I’ono, it sounds like you can easily have fun, which iz a good thing… Hope you neva feel like you agin’! We need y’all!! My Rating: 4.2

11. “Hot Shit”
3:47 on tha length… Can’t wait to see what kinda “shit” this “hot” gon be, right chea!! >>> Hmm… Sounds like a lil’ bit of a mainstream vibe wit tha beat, so far… Glad you fuck wit “real-ass people,” ya dig? See, it can sound typical but your music has an extra punch to it, or somethin’… Nice job wit tha hook, wit your extra punch! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like you got this shit on lock—your “parish!” I keep thinkin’ tha, “I spit hot shit, like it’s 100 degrees…,” line gon appear but it didn’t, lol… You got tha facts comin’ through on tha 2nd verse, right chea… Ooh, “104… degrees!” We been only peakin’ at, like, high 80’s up here in Northeast PA, tho… Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and you sound betta on here, no matter if you “ill” or not—sickness! Glad you be “fresh” and shit; that’s how I be, ya dig? You got dem “people,” all right! My Rating: 3.9

12. “Full Of That Shit” feat. Gator
Prolly woulda felt betta reviewin’ this one live but it’s all good… Needed to have a blind review, every now and then… Now, can’t wait ta hear this one wit this “shit,” as well, lol! >>> Sounds like it gon be an excitin’ anthem, right chea… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice! An undaground thang: gotta get “full of that shit!” Hearin’ tha 1st verse and yeah, dat smell of bein’ “in yo pocket;” definitely dumb shit! Oh, tha brownies I ate, yesterday stunk tha bag up to where tha top of tha bag still smelt! Crazy shit! Gotta luv how you feelin’ great, smellin’ great, too, ya dig? When I say, “Great,” I’m talkin’ ‘bout dat green! And, we got Gator on tha 2nd verse, here, feelin’ “lit,” so that’s what’s up, lol… Gotta luv livin’ it up wit y’all; y’all strictly hold it down at all times, ya dig? My Rating: 4.4

13. “Bend Ova” feat. C-T.H.U.G. & Enostar
Let’s see what we got, right chea… >>> Sounds like an interestin’ lil’ slow track, right chea… Tha hook’s a lil’ smooth wit this singin’…; not too bad… Like how you’re on your sex shit wit this one… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like a nice lil’ vibe, right chea… Definitely nice wit what tha T.H.U.G. bringin’ to tha table, in a chillaxin’ way… Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse, right chea & it’s dope; luvin’ your vibe! Hope you neva quit! I gotta hold ya down at all times! My Rating: 4.0

14. “I Miss U”
Let’s see what this gon sound like, followin’ tha previous track… >>> A lil’ more upbeat… A dedication to your “pops,” right chea… I have to say, tha upbeat vibe makes this sound nice, at least… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice ta hear, at least… Sounds like someone uncredited singin’ on tha hook, here… Not too bad, overall; betta than most dedication tracks, ya dig? That sux wit err-thang that happened wit your “dad” on tha 2nd verse, here… It’s like how it was when my brother died… His was an overdose in my studio room! That’s why I’m tha fearless dude I am today, ya dig? Nothin’ stops me from anythang! And, a 3rd verse, right chea, strictly holdin’ it down… Still luv that you tha cool dude you always gon be, ya dig? You don’t let anythang stop you from usin’ your talent! My Rating: 3.7

15. Outro
And, here’s an outro…! >>> Ooh, sounds nice wit tha dude checkin’ on you, Carter! And, got your music in tha background! That “Dog Wit No Collar”; gotta luv ya! Pretty vicious, right chea! Gotta luv tha lil’ spot you in, on tha front cover! Looks like my cousin’s treehouse…! My Rating: N/A

Overall: Excellent job, Carter! Nothin’ but dat quality to tha table, right chea! Them 1982 babies got shit on lock! As long as they stay focused about grindin’ and not quittin’ like one I know, then they good! So glad you got to this point where you released a CD! Hope you keep plenty more comin’!
