Review #1,784: Shizz Dollah "Look What You Made Me Do, Vol. 2 (Deluxe Edition)"

Reviewed on 11.09.2018 (Review #1,784)

Got anotha review I finna do. Too bad this artist just passed away, tha day I lost my computer job at my job (two weeks ago), on October 26: Shizz Dollah Look What You Made Me Do, Vol. 2 (Deluxe Edition), courtesy of DJ B-Real’s Pay The Producer Production! Purhcased it a month before Shizz passed away, but neva reviewed it ‘cause of tha pain I was goin’ through wit my music video wit A1, as well as losing my commercials opportunity with my job. Either way, at least B-Real’ll appreciate this one… Start Time: 7:27 AM | End Time: 7:58 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!

© 2018 CD Review (Review #1,784) reviewed on 11.09.2018 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Intro: 48 Bars Of Power”
Let’s hear it! >>> Nice B-Real beat, even tho it turns into a lil’ bit of a typical, mainstream sound, for tha south… Either way, definitely nice wit tha consistent rhymes, Shizz! “Take no dayz off;” that’s what I did when I worked 44 dayz in a row! Then, I finally got Doe-Doe to come to PA & now, my job wants me to take my dayz off, smh! They trippin’ wit they money!! Neva heard me brag!! But yeah, also, it’s sad that now, you’ll “be chillin’ wit Shawty Lo.” Regardless, all these consistent rhymes are definitely nice, regardless of tha mainstream-soundin’ beat! My Rating: 4.5

02. “I Feel The Same Way” w/Da Real Gee Money
Whoo, whoot!! Produced by Neil On Da Track & DJ B-Real!! Definitely felt it when B-Real sent me it, once he reconnected wit me, last October! Definitely a jammin’ beat, hook & what you got goin’ on, here! I’ono, but this, like, my “Welcome Back, B-Real” anthem or somethin’, knowin’ that B-Real’s 100% official, again! Also, Gee doin’ tha damn thang on tha 1st verse wit his continuous vibe! I like this betta than tha whole G-Code 2, thanx to its vibe and all dat! Also, you doin’ a nice job on tha 2nd verse, Shizz! Consistency at its finest; gotta luv it! My Current Rating: 4.7

03. “I’m Outside” feat. WNC Whop Bezzy
Still feels funny that I barely know WNCWB but I met him on my 29th birthday, at tha Bella Noche, courtesy of Funky Fingaz! >>> Sounds like an anticipatin’ beginning; definitely diggin’ this start! Sounds like a nice 1st verse, too; Baton Rouge G-shit at its finest!! Bezzy almost sounds like Spitta, in a way… Luv how those beats slam; that’s what Gee Money’s CD needed, when I just reviewed it! Crazy-soundin’ hook, too; definitely official! Great job on tha 2nd verse, Shizz, strictly doin’ tha damn thang! Yeah, like “Yung Joc” & that “Nitti beat;” so ’06! My Rating: 4.6

04. “One In The Head”
>>> Already not likin’ tha voice effect in tha beginning, here. This sounds like tha shit I was dislikin’ when you were doin’ tha Foxx A.D.I.D.A.S. shit. I’ono, beat’s kinda dry/not really poppin’ & I can’t really fuck wit this auto-tuned shit… A more-normal voice on tha 2nd verse, here, but tha 1st ½ of tha song already threw me off… Sounds betta but it also sounds like random ya-ya-yada ta me… My Rating: 2.7

05. “Make Time For You”
>>> Beginning sounds like some catchy B-Real shit… I’ono about tha hook, yet; kinda catchy but nothin’ I’d go crazy about… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like an okay track. Literally, you sound like you tryna sound like B-Real, a lil’… Sounds okay on tha 2nd verse, here; relationship-type shit… Glad I neva got to witness a bad relationship, yet. I’ll just continue watchin’ err-body struggle wit they relationships & focus on my career, before I chase a “randomlationship!” Either way, ehh… My Rating: 3.3

½time: Tha 1st three jointz were definitely hot but #4 & 5 were not really for me… Overall, we’re at a 4.0 rating, so far; definitely nice, regardless… Let’s see how we continue dis bitch…

06. “Long Time”
>>> Hardbody doin’ this beat… Sounds like good rhymes, even tho when it’s rapped fast, it sounds random, at times. I like tha “weed” part, in tha hook: “I like tha strong kind;” of course! Nothin’ but dat Cali shit, as well as dat Moonrock shit (weed, kief, wax & hash!!)! B-Real, one more week!! Overall, this a decent two-verse track; can’t complain too much… My Rating: 3.7

07. “Separate Ways”
What’s with tha “Saperate”? >>> Doe on tha beat; not really anticipatin’ this, despite it bein’ a $hizz & Doe collab… Sounds like somethin’ that would be catchy for tha mainstream, on tha singing-soundin’ hook. Then again, tha mainstream ain’t me! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it decent… Speakin’ of, “She text my phone,” on June 25, 2017, G.O.C. Flag St. & them tried hittin’ you up while I was interviewin’ them. You weren’t around but that was a great day, regardless. Anotha track fa tha ladies, here… My Rating: 3.0

08. “It’s Gone Get Better For Me”
>>> Sounds like a depressing vibe? Kinda likin’ this quiet-soundin’ beat wit your story goin’ on… Not tha craziest but, it’s crazy how you said, “Only fear iz me dyin’, in my prime…” Who woulda thought you’d have a fatal heart attack at 28? I see you mentioned “Flag,” on tha 1st verse. Yeah, free G.O.C.! Glad you produced his undaground hit song from last year, “One Mo Time”! As far as tha rest of this, it aight; it iz what it iz… My Rating: 3.5

09. “Blue Lines” feat. Tokyo Yens
>>> A betta beat vibe, here… Sounds like a good hook wit these “blue lines.” Glad you always askin’, “Where da weed at?” Definitely what’s up! Hope you shmokin’ good up in Heaven! Catchy rhymes, non-stop, wit these “Legos” & all that! Neva heard this female on tha 2nd verse, here; not really feelin’ her “money” shit… My Rating: 3.2

10. “No Handouts”
Not “Hand Outs”, lol. >>> Decent beat; decent hook, here… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t bad… Some interestin’ sounds comin’ outta tha beat, outta nowhere, like they artifacts; official…! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and tha rhymes are consistent, here… Not likin’ when tha beat fades out into a distortion. That effect sounds too much like tha mainstream shit, these dayz… You did a great job wit tha consistent rhymes, here, but some thangz on this track, such as tha beat and mainstream vibe, made me prevent this from gettin’ at least a 4.0 from me… My Rating: 3.8

Overall: Thought it was gon be betta than Gee Money but only tha 1st three tracks were. Tha rest were either decent or they weren’t really for me… Either way, definitely built some sorta hype fa me, in tha beginning… R.I.P. Shizz Dollah; #LongLiveShizzDollah

And, as a bonus, I neva got ta check out these three tracks off Look What You Made Me Do, Vol. 1, so I finna review ‘em now (neva had tha Deluxe Edition):

“GYST (Get Yo Shit Together)”
>>> This sounds real catchy, between tha beat and tha repetitiveness on tha hook! See, Shizz, you may’ve not’ve liked when I ain’t like your Foxx-released A.D.I.D.A.S., in 2012, due to a-tune. However, you got much betta since! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s pretty dope. Random fastness throughout tha 1st verse; kinda diggin’ it… Good shit on tha 2nd verse, too; definitely a plus! Pureness at its finest! Kinda wanted this vibe fa Gee Money’s G-Code 2 but it’s in your hands! My Rating: 4.5

“I Got Me”
>>> B-Real doin’ this beat… See, no matter tha effect on tha hook, this sounds way betta than what I thought of tha A.D.I.D.A.S. dayz! Good catchiness, once again, during tha hook, fa this slowie… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds good, too. Sometimes, a lil’ decent but betta than tha average, of course… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and, how ironic, you mentioned “Wissel,” here, just like I did, earlier in tha beginning of tha review. “I be high as a bird when I drop shit;” you already know, $hizz! Good shit, even with tha voice effect, at times…! My Rating: 3.9

“Don’t Play Around” w/Bo Champ
>>> Sounds good wit a dry, decent beat; good hook… Hearin’ this Champ on tha 1st verse and, “Shit yeah,” iz right? Will it be? Kinda sounds betta than nothin’, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s you, $hizz, comin’ through wit some consistent rhymes, at times; good shit… Sometimes, tha voice effects irritate me, like a rash, but it’s—ehh, a 50 Cent “Window Shopper” reference, lol? How random/seems so outdated…! Mainly, this just focused on rappin’ wit not much catchiness, overall… My Rating: 3.6
