Review #1,761: $hizz Dollah "Look What You Made Me Do"

Reviewed on 10.30.2017 (Review #1,761)


Up nice and early to catch up on some reviewz, before tha month ends… A lot done happened since my last Louisiana review! Had my most-recent Louisiana trip October 13 – October 16! Met up wit 41 people, which was nice… However, I got robbed outta $176 in a setup tha 1st night I was down there… It wasn’t an artist, so I moved on from it. Either way, my manager left my job & a job opportunity may be landin’ my way, soon! Also, my ex-friends came to visit me and may reconnect with me…! And, to top it off, after over 3 ½ years, DJ B-Real FINALLY UNBLOCKED & RECONNECTED WITH ME on October 22! I still ain’t know what I did to make us reconnect, but I’mma just say that I’m doin’ somethin’ right!! I feel that all tha trips to Louisiana, all tha people I done connected with, err-thang done added up! I guess I had to make $80,446.32 at work over tha years ta achieve tha unblocking success? That’s what I did! So, it’s been a blast! I’m also working on my upcoming video countdown, FTLD’z Top 20 Louisiana CDs During His Connection, in honor of me bein’ connected with tha Louisiana rap scene fa 10 years (on October 11). Lot in store fa me but barely any time fa anythang! I even have a music project comin’ out! Damn, I just keep goin’ and goin’ wit err-thang! That’s why, I haven’t had a chance to update tha blog wit tha info! Now, I’m here, bright and early in tha mornin’! With that bein’ said, here goes my review for $hizz Dollah Look What You Made Me Do, released on B-Real’s Pay The Producer Production (PTP Production) & Blocc Society! Only five tracks, here; nice and quick… Also, out now: $hizz collaborated with Da Real Gee Money on “I Feel The Same Way”, produced by Neil On Da Track & DJ B-Real; peep dat out! Start Time: 4:37 AM | End Time: 4:51 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. “Off Safety”
Seems like it’s been a minute since I done reviewed… But, naw, I review every month, of course! >>> Sounds like a good start wit tha intro and tha shout outs to “B-Real” & “Mouse On Tha Track,” here… Sounds like a nice verse, here… At times, you honestly sound like A1 Wissel wit your voice… I’ono, I can’t say anythang negative about this… I have to say, you done made some nice comeback moves ‘cause I remember your music soundin’ shitty with auto-tune, or some other shit (I gave up around 2012 but now, you got this). Now, you got this! My Rating: 4.0


02. “100”
>>> B-Real doin’ this track; nice shit… See, tha beat can sound like a typical, mainstream-soundin’ beat but B-Real has some extra sounds that make it more interestin’, ya dig? Good job wit tha 1st verse, here; glad you focused… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice; dope shit! Nice to see you guys fuckin’ wit YBB Studios; gotta luv that place! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty nice; consistent rhymes, here… Definitely diggin’ your “100” perspective wit how you be handlin’ err-thang; good shit…! My Rating: 4.3


½time: Definitely nice fa two tracks, so far; good shit… A 4.2-rated CD; gotta keep it movin’!


03. “All For You”
>>> Sounds like an interestin’ track… A lil’ smooth and, damn, “cancelin’ all my plans all for you,” huh? Honestly, they betta take care of “you!” I hate when I have to be “all” ready fa people & then, it’s such a struggle fa them ta do tha same fa me! Luckily, I don’t have ta worry about so much negativity, these dayz! An okay 1st verse, as you got shit goin’ on, here… And, tha 2nd verse ain’t bad, too… Gotta luv “flyin’ down I-10;” glad I done seen tha interstate! My Rating: 3.7


04. “Ain’t Playing With You”
>>> Gotta luv “Glen Oaks;” lotta great peeps there…! Sounds like a nice, simple, Baton Rouge-type track, here; decent hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you comin’ through wit some nice shit, here… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse, here, and it’s pretty nice, too… Not bad of a track, here; short-n-sweet… My Rating: 3.8


05. “I Got My Money Up” feat. Doe_XO
So, Doe’s now Doe_XO? I luv how err-body’s name done changed since tha beginning… Gotta update my blog’s tags so many times… Then again, I’ono about this title… >>> I can say worse but, for now, it’s decent; simple hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s good wit tha consistent rhymes; can’t complain… Almost couldn’t tell whose voice was whose but here’s Doe on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit a similar vibe as you… For a “money” track, this ain’t bad. Usually, I’d bash tha shit outta it… My Rating: 3.1


Overall: A decent lil’ five-track disc, here… Glad to see you movin’ up in tha world, $hizz—Dollah sign or no dollah sign, lol? I put it, still… I know Kesha took her’s off (really?)… But, props fa fuckin’ wit some good peeps (B-Real & G.O.C. Flag St.—FREE G.O.C.!!)! Lookin’ forward to more in tha future! I’m sure I’mma meet ya sooner or later…
