Another bad release from Mach Hommy. Really, the only good thing I can say about this release was that the beats were pretty decent. There was a lot of really hard, neck snapping beats on here. As far as the rhymes go, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Dude is whack with lyrics. I’m definitely not feeling his style at all. Put the mic down and give it a rest already. If you are going to peep this project, really just listen to the beats and that is all you need.

Public Enemy dropped off a surprise free album for fans. To start off, I know this will sound like sacrilege, but I am not really a fan of Public Enemy. I just never really got into their music too much. This album definitely didn’t change my mind on that. I thought that there was too much of a rock influence on here. It was way too heavy on guitars for my liking. The beats were definitely not the best. This wasn’t really something that I could see myself bumping in the ride. The lyrics were okay. Chuck D is definitely one of the most respected MC’s in rap history so I definitely give him the respect that is due. I just couldn’t really get down with this particular release. In my humble opinion, I’d pass on this record and if you are a Public Enemy fan, just go and pick up the old records.

This was a quick surprise EP dropped off From Lil Wayne. Hopefully he is just chomping at the bit to drop off Tha Carter 5 to us and this is his way to get something out on the streets. Obviously my first criticism is that it is not long enough. 4 tracks is simply not enough. That being said, it is a decent release for what it is. Lil Wayne is definitely spitting on these tracks. You can definitely hear his hunger on the first track “Loyalty.” As far as the beats, you can tell that these were probably the tracks that didn’t make the cut for other projects. They are not bad, but they are not the usual quality you are used to from Lil Wayne. All in all it was still good to hear something from Tunechi. Birdman needs to pay that man his money and let him do his thing.

This was a pretty bad project from Tupac’s group The Outlawz. Really, the only good thing I can say about this album was that there seemed to be some power behind it. You could tell there was some might in the voices. That’s about it. The lyrics were under par. The beats were nothing special. There were no west coast bangers on there like Pac would have had. Without Pac’s leadership, you can definitely tell there is a huge void in this crew and there is really no point in trying to rekindle their efforts in the rap game.

This album was God awful. Bizarre should have never ever been a rapper at all. The lyrics suck so bad on this project. The beats are awful. This is just a drug-filled mess all around. There is really nothing good I can say about it at all. I’m mad that I wasted time listening to such garbage. Do not listen to this at all under any circumstances.

This album was sort of a waste. I thought with getting a member of Bone Thugs N Harmony and a member of the Outlawz together on a project that it would just be fire. This definitely fell short of that by a lot. Lyrically, the rhymes are boring. There is nothing special about it. There is no replay value. There is nothing that is going to make you listen to a track back. The beats are boring. There is nothing that really evokes any emotion here. I don’t dislike either of these rappers but something just went wrong on this release. It just didn’t translate into what it should have been.

This was a surprisingly good record that I had gave a chance to not knowing anything about it. I was glad that I did give it a shot though. Smoovth is a dope rapper that is able to set the stage with this release with help from the producer Giallo Point. The project is called Medellin and of course you can only assume it is going to be laced with drug trafficking and dealing references. Lyrically Smoovth is able to paint a great picture of a lavish drug trafficking lifestyle complete with all the riches and opulence. He has a way of saying things that is different than most rappers which I not only appreciate, but I encourage. He just has a way of saying things in a really slick manner. It’s something you don’t hear everyday. The beats on here are pretty good overall as well. There are a lot of clever samples. The album is definitely cohesive. It sounds like all of these tracks were meant to be together and tell a story. Give the whole thing a listen and when you are done, listen to it again.
