Review #1,699: Mean Green "Major Players Compilation"

Reviewed on 3.24.2017 (Review #1,699)


Happy 58th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs, three years at my job & only two more dayz till my dream comes true!! This my next review: Mean Green Major Players Compilation, released in 1998 on No Limit Records & Priority Records! Start Time: 1:43 AM | End Time: 2:44 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!

Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice, here; great shit from you, Y-Bizzle!! Your song, “Broski’s”, with Tazz, has become one of tha best songs I’ve played from Louisiana! Song reminds me of my broski, who’s currently locked up, in which I added tha track on his birthday, last year (September 9)! Definitely nice! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse, here, and it’s pretty nice; good shit! Gotta dig tha consistent, street shit you bringin’ to tha table, here!

Got Mr. Joe on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit consistent rhymes, but soundin’ decent ta me… My Rating: 4.0

Tha hook’s nice wit tha sample; definitely dope wit how we’ve evolved in life! Good shit comin’ outta tha 2nd verse, here, strictly keepin’ it Rouge fa tha Rouge!

10. “Ballin’ Hard”
>>> More Ken tracks… Tha beat sounds like it’s a high feelin’ to embrace, or somethin’? Nice lil’ 1st verse, here… Tha hook sounds nice ta hear, even tho sometimes, I feel like it sounds mainstream… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and I’m likin’ how you sound a lil’ more upbeat in your voice, here… Almost thought there was gon be a 3rd verse but it’s close to a minute of an outro, here… My Rating: 3.9


11. “Long Way” feat. Dinero Costello

That 2nd ½ of tha hook nice…! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you “come from tha bottom like grass,” lol! Nice job wit what you bringin’ to tha table, here… Hearin’ Dinero on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some catchy rhymes; can’t deny ‘em… My Rating: 4.1

Happy 56th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs & only four more dayz till my dream comes true!! My next review iz a double disc! Too bad I stayed up a lil’ later, last night & am gonna have me a nice lil’ shmoke, this early, so I gon have to split up this review… My next review iz Master P MP Da Last Don, released in 1998 on No Limit Records & Priority Records!
Disc 1: Start Time: 2:02 AM | End Time: 2:56 AM
Disc 2: Start Time: 12:29 PM | End Time: 1:14 PM
Overall: Start Time: 2:02 AM | End Time: 1:14 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!

Good 2nd verse, too, wit what you got goin’ on, here, ta continue… Why all tha censorin’ toward tha end? Such a fuckin’ turn-off!!

I don’t get to see African Americans that often, so this gon be somethin’ special, fa me!

Well, I’ono what happened but this was decent from what I heard… My Rating: 3.5

04. “So Many Souls Deceased” feat. The Commission
Carlos Stephens doin’ this track… >>> Diggin’ tha eerie vibes on tha hook, P! Crazy that I’ve “seen” a few “souls deceased,” so far, and yeah, it does change life! I always thought life was tha same for so long and then, my brother died! But, I’m here to continue! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice from you, P!

My Rating: 4.2


09. “Goodbye To My Homies” feat. Silkk The Shocker, Mo B. Dick & Sons Of Funk
MP beat… >>> So slow, I can fall asleep on tha spot!! I’m yawnin’ as we speak!! *Yawns…* Luckily, I have Music Choice Dance in tha background, keepin’ me awake and anticipated! As far as this track, tha hook and beginning’s almost a minute long, soundin’ slow and draggin’… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s not bad wit what you’re bringin’ to tha table, here, as far as tha story… I can’t really buy this boring, slow shit… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s almost as slow as a spoken word-type track… Tha 3rd verse sounds even more spoken-word than tha previous verse!

12. “Make ‘Em Say Ugh (Part 2)” feat. Fiend, Mia X, Silkk The Shocker & Snoop Dogg
KLC track; anotha version! >>> An intro, here; sounds like it gon be anticipatin’… Sounds like tha beat iz officially remixed, here, into a sequel to tha original version, here… Still, definitely nice, overall! Diggin’ tha extra-uptempo vibe! My Rating: 4.5


13. “Hot Boys & Girls” feat. Kane, Abel, Mia X, Mystikal & Silkk The Shocker
A Craig B beat… >>> Sounds like a dope lil’ slow beat, here; good shit I’m expectin’… I’m really feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha hook!
