Review #1,762: B-Don Trustnone "No Lies In My Eyes #FTW"

Reviewed on 10.30.2017 (Review #1,762)

Keepin’ these reviewz goin’… Known dude for almost a decade through tha now-defunct Word of South message board forum. Used to go by just “B-Don” but now, it’s B-Don Trustnone and his CD, No Lies In My Eyes #FTW, released on Only 4 The Real Label. Only song I really know of his iz a 2009 collaboration with Jigga City J-Bo & Puppy “I’m So Fly”. Now, let’s see how he workin’ in 2017. We had tha opportunity to meet this summer but tha thing with Louisiana iz my phone constantly blows up while I’m down there. Tons of people wanna meet & most of tha time, it’s during tha same time. So, depending on what hood I’m at, I go and see whoever I gotta see. Don’t worry, tho, we gon link up… My goal iz to meet err-body! Now, lemme go peep this out… Start Time: 5:19 AM | End Time: 5:50 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!

© 2017 CD Review (Review #1,762) reviewed on 10.30.2017 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Fire-Breathin’ Dragon”
I like tha title a lot… I know I done peeped a sample of it but now, here’s tha official review… >>> Sounds catchy wit tha rhymes, beat & how you come through on tha hook… Nice job wit tha 1st verse, Mr. “Mall City” reprasenta… Tha 2nd verse sounds good, here… Lol @ tha line about their “shine” havin’ “to masturbate,” or somethin’; nice… And, tha 3rd verse ain’t bad, here; glad you keepin’ it movin’… My Rating: 3.9

02. “Master Don (Freestyle)”
>>> I’ont really fuck wit freestyles but lemme see what we got, here… “Life’s a roach ‘til you kill tha weed;” dope line… Decent rhymes but, let’s move on to some original production or somethin’… To me, this just some random shit; barely any interest… My Rating: 2.5

03. “U Show U Wanna Be A Gangsta In ’17?” (Solo Soja, Big Status & B-Don Trustnone)
>>> I hope this gon be a good one… A nice, long beat intro, here; at least we have a good start… Likin’ tha lil’ hook sample; Boosie… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and tha dude sound decent, here, on tha voice… Rhymes aight; guess it good wit tha “gangsta” content? Here you are on tha 2nd verse, comin’ through wit a lil’ bit of betta rhymes than tha 1st verse… Got tha 3rd verse, here, and it ain’t bad… Dude sounds so focused on tha “money,” here… Random rhymin’ toward tha last seven seconds… My Rating: 3.7

04. “Heavily Drinkin’”
Me? Edibles, lol! Just randomly sayin’! >>> Sounds like a sappy beat… I’ono if I can hang in there fa 4:51… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it has real-life rhymes. However, this ain’t up my alley, as I barely have any interest in it… Tha hook ain’t bad but, honestly, I feel like tha rhymes and vibe goin’ to, like, a Tupac perspective? Can’t really fuck wit what err-body fucks wit… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it sounds like a nice, paranoid-type vibe wit tha lyrics? Keepin’ it goin’ wit tha 3rd verse and yeah, you spittin’ tha facts… And, 1:31 left and it’s an outro? Kinda long… Damn! Fuck! Tha last 1:01 just silence? Fail!! My Rating: 3.2

05. “Been Out Chere In North B.R.” feat. Lil’ Anxious & Tossagat
>>> This sounds a lil’ betta… Hearin’ tha hook and it’s nice; all about bein’ “out chere.” Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like some somewhat-good shit from, like, tha Rouge dayz of tha late ‘00s? Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it ain’t bad… My interest was there in tha beginning but it kinda droppin’ wit tha repetitiveness of tha beat… My Rating: 3.4

06. “Y.B.N. Money Longer”
I’ono about anythang “money”… >>> Fuck this jacked-beat/track shit! Almost ready to skip it! Uzi Vert-type shit! Okay rhymes from you but I have no interest… My Rating: 1.1

½time: A 3.0-rated CD… I’ono, I want more Baton Rouge vibes… I would suggest gettin’ some original production (B-Real, Mouse, Q-Red, Neil On Da Track, Haney, Fatboi On Da Track, etc.)…

07. “B-Doncan (Tim Duncan Appre)”
>>> I’ono, not really up my alley… I’ono what else ta expect wit this CD, now… Randomness, here… My Rating: 1.9

08. “I Wouldn’t Change Shx”
>>> Ugh!! Sounds like anotha jacked beat! Just wanna skip!! Yeah, wtf? ’05 again? “Start From Scratch”; really? Not even Louisiana—well, not even Baton Rouge, in my 2017 perspective! Nothin’s betta than Baton Rouge & nothin’ will get betta from this point on, especially with my brother no longer here! There’s no changin’ tha betta from here! My Rating: 1.0

09. “Jus In Case I Die Tonight”
>>> Back-to-back ‘05ness wit “Dreams”! Why?!? *Skips* My Rating: 1.0

10. “Ambitions Of A Young Boss Nx”
>>> Kinda random; not too interested… My Rating: 1.5

11. “That Big Pow” feat. Lil’ Anxious
>>> Just sounds like random rhymes wit a quiet-ass beat… It’s like, where’s all tha excitement from Baton Rouge that I’m used to? You know I’m completely lost where I don’t even realize it’s “Down And Out” on tha beat… Like, really? Why your mind all on ’05, all of a sudden? My Rating: 1.0

12. “Let’s Make It Happen” (Lil’ Anxious)
Bonus… >>> This sounds like a betta vibe but it ain’t Louisiana, so I can’t take it too serious… Tha dude on tha 1st verse ain’t bad, here… Tha hook sounds catchy wit how dude sound but, I feel like this, like, tha vibe of tha ’07 freestyles or somethin’ that peeps would put out on random mixtapes. I feel like, now’s tha time for Baton Rouge, especially wit Gates blowin’ up… Tha 2nd verse Anxious, too, soundin’ betta than most of this CD… My Rating: 3.0

Overall: You really need some original tracks! “I’m So Fly” was original… Without tha production, it just sounds like everything else that’s in tha mainstream! I feel bad that I spent $9.99 on it…
