Your reason for
buying this mixtape is to hear Sheek Louch dig out 50 Cent, admit it. But what's
with Jadakiss and Blue rhyming over REO Speedwagon's "Keep On Loving You"?
That shit is jokes kid! Gotta love the 80's man, it rules dude man bro. In all
actuality, shit is pulled off. Wonder what the hood reaction to this is
You won't catch Styles P rhymin' over that shit, but you will catch him rhyming
over "Still D.R.E.," and on some bootleg radio shit over that Alchemist
track for Jada. Sheek picks it up over Beans and Snoop's "Don't Stop"
and Stat Quo's "Like Dat." Jadakiss appears later on Yummi's "Come
Get It," an alright R&B track. Using a snippet of Game from Boyz In
Da Hood's "Dem Boyz" is more of that mixtape trickery bullshit. Don't
tell me that's hustling, that's foolishness. A surprise from the disc is Cassidy
goin' haywire on the acapella "Still On My Grind." Shit is fiaaa!!
Hopefully Cass stays within the same mentality; we all know how man's personality
change. Speaking of angry emcees, Prodigy lights up a Snoop classic ("Dudes
wanna suck my style and pass for me"), then rhyming over the quirky G-d
up "Realness" is not quite apt to his Queens stylings. Gravy and Fab
rhyme over Jay-Z's "Brooklyn's Finest" and I guess you could call
this the sequel. And is it just me or do all of Hell Rell's joints use the same
formula? They all sound like b-movie medieval productions courtesy of the highly
epic use of a Casio. Shit is lames. Remember the Wu-Syndicate? Awww mannn. Both
"Get Em Daddy" an "Back You Up" have cheesy horn-sounding
synths and some ghetto ass mafia raps ("these niggas wanna be Scarface,
I'm with Sosa"). At least Juelz Santana's "Kill Yourself" brings
a concept to the tape, as sadistic as that sounds. I think it's time for some
of these mixtape "pause" deejays to either wait for GOOD material
to work with (that means you ain't gotta drop 2 tapes a week), or re-up they
whole style. But who am I to say, y'all gonna buy their shit anyway.
