BIZZY BONE – I’M BUSY

Bizzy Bone drops a new album that isn’t too great overall. His bars on this aren’t too great. There really aren’t any memorable lines that people are going to be playing back over and over again. I think with every Bone Thugs album, fans want to get that original sound back, but we just can’t seem to get it back. He has a ton of features from his son Lil Bizzy that are just as lackluster as his own rhymes. The music on here is pretty simplistic. There weren’t really any joints on here that I just wanted to hear over and over again. All in all, this was a pretty poor job on an album. Hopefully we see some improvement on any future projects. It’d be great to hear more melodic joints like we got in the past.

YELAWOLF & SHOOTER JENNINGS – SOMETIMES Y

This is definitely not a rap album at all. Rap fans are not going to rock with this one at all. There’s really not much replay value on here either. The only song that might have some staying power might be “Rock & Roll Baby.” This one I can kind of hear being played a little more than other songs, but all in all, this album is not going to get much play at all. Rap fans, just skip on past this one.

KANYE WEST – DONDA 2

Kanye West drops a turd of an album with this piece of garbage. I love Kanye and he is a genius, but this album is straight trash. It’s a shame that no one close to him would tell him this. He’s got it in him to make classics. We’ve seen it again and again. But this one is not it. He has a ton of trash rappers on here. He tries to copy these new flows to sound relevant and up to date. It just doesn’t sound good on any level. “Get Lost” is an absolutely dreadful song. I am not even 100% certain that you can call it a song. There are a few positive points on here but not many. Don Toliver is a dope artist and Kanye needs to work more with him. He sounds great on hooks. The beat for “Lord Lift Me Up” sounds amazing too. He probably could have did more with that song. I know some better rappers probably would have brought out some feeling on that song. Overall, this one was trash and I hope those close to Kanye have the courage to let him know.

JIM JONES & DJ DRAMA – WE SET THE TRENDS

Jim Jones and DJ Drama join forces to drop a pretty crappy mixtape. This is littered with below average artists and a ton of beats that sound the same. There is a good stretch in the middle of the project that just sounds like the same song over and over again. I got tons of respect for Jim Jones. He is usually pretty dope with the rhymes and he is on this one. It’s just that all of these other artists and terrible beats is just way too much. With this album being 25 tracks long, it goes way over what it should have been. A lot of these so-called rappers on here sound like everyone else out there. The only songs that are salvageable are the ones like “Fit Lit (Betty White)” featuring Dave East, Maino, and Fabolous and “Barz” featuring Dave East. When you get veteran East Coast rappers that know what they are doing on the mic, it produces better results. These are the kinds of projects that drag down the excellence of hip-hop music. It’s a quick money grab with no regard for the art. I’m hoping for a better project next time Jim.

HELL RELL & MARTY BALLER – WOK WORLD

Hell Rell teams up with some guy named Marty Baller for some reason. These two came up with this 5 track project and it is straight garbage. Hell Rell is a good lyricist, so why he choses to work with such untalented people is beyond me. It must be for a paycheck because it certainly isn’t for the artistic vision. Rell’s rhymes are okay throughout this project but they don’t sound as good as he could because of the beats on here. Marty Baller sounds terrible on the mic. He sound as if he is whining in pain most times that you hear him. And that is just what your ears will feel: pain. This is a garbage project and should be thrown away. Skip right over this one.

BIZARRE – PETER

Bizarre drops a new steaming hot piece of garbage on the industry. The lyrics are whack throughout this thing. It is just more shock value for the sake of shock value. There isn’t much, if any, lyrical skill on here. All of the featured artists are trash. The beats are pretty below average for the most part. The best beat on here is the track “1 Million (Boss Shit)” because it samples the Aaliyah song. I don’t know how they got this to fly because it seems like an abomination to Aaliyah’s legacy. All in all, this album is straight whack. Pass this one up with the quickness.

TORY LANEZ – ALONE AT PROM

Tory Lanez drops off another new album for some reason. There must be somebody out there that wanted this, but I sure don’t know anyone that did. This is more of an 80s inspired and sounding album, which The Weeknd already did. Not sure why Tory Lanez is trying to bite off of that. Most likely to try to stay relevant, I guess. He sings the whole album and I don’t want to say it is the worst, but it isn’t far off. The production definitely sounds more 80s inspired and would probably better suit most any other artist out there. All in all, this was not a very good album. I don’t know why Tory Lanez still creates things.

LAYZIE BONE & HC THE CHEMIST – EYEZ ON THE PRIZE

Layzie Bone teams up with HC The Chemist to give us a pretty subpar project. As far as sounding like a classic Bone project, there may be a few reminiscent harmonies in there that vaguely sound like their old sound, but not many. Layzie sound decent but this HC The Chemist sounds terrible. I might be wrong because I am not close to the situation, but I thought there was a beef between Bone Thugs and The Migos. This HC The Chemist sounds exactly like the Migos. Why would an artist want to do a project with another artist that sounds exactly like someone they are beefing with? Just doesn’t sound like something rational to do. Anyway, the beats on here are definitely below average. There really is no replay value in this album at all. Skip right over this one and keep it moving.

LIL WAYNE & RICH THE KID – TRUST FUND BABIES

Lil Wayne teams up with Rich The Kid for some reason and drop off a turd of an album. On the mic, Lil Wayne definitely has some bars on here, but it’s like the rhymes get drowned out by the whackness of the album. Rich The Kid is terrible on the mic and should probably never rap again. There really aren’t too many rhymes that you will be rewinding on here. There is only one feature from YG. The beats on here are pretty basic and nothing really stands out at all. Even the lead single “Feelin Like Tunechi” isn’t very memorable at all. I would probably skip over this one and move onto the next thing.

SUAVE SKI & LONELEZ – MAD AMOR

This is a 5 track EP that is not going to be for the hip-hop heads at all. Suave-Ski teams up with producer Lonelez to give us more of a Latin or Caribbean feel on this short project. I really hope that this is just a one-off because it didn’t really sound too good overall. When I saw the name Suave-Ski, I was expecting to get those CT bars, but just didn’t get it with this one. It sounds more like a project trying to appeal to the masses. I know he’s capable of more. I like Suave-Ski, I just didn’t like this project. The hip-hop heads will want to move right past this one.

RAS KASS & V1C – BARBONIC PLAGUE

V1C needs to NEVER rhyme again, ever. This guy is straight trash on the mic. The bars are so bad. He is the type of guy that throws a bunch of complicated words together and hope that they sound good. His flow is garbage. He really brings the overall quality of rap music down. Ras Kass, on the other hand, is a lyrical genius. His legend is cemented in time. So again, it’s very surprising that he would agree to this project. The beats on here aren’t too good either. Thank God there are only 4 tracks to suffer through. This is one you want to skip right over. Let’s wait for another Ras Kass project on its own and hope that V1C gets a job flipping burgers in the meantime.

KOOL KEITH – KEITH’S SALON

Kool Keith comes back with a new album that is pretty much the same reincarnation of the last few albums. This is nothing new. If you heard the last few, you aren’t going to get anything new. It’s his same unorthodox, weird style, sex raps. The beats are really far out there as well. This really isn’t going to be an album that anyone is bumping this summer. You won’t hear this at parties. You won’t hear this on the radio. You won’t hear this bumping out the back of jeeps. It’s just how it is.

TECH N9NE & HUSH – BLIGHT

Tech N9ne teams up with Blight to give fans a new collaboration project that is pretty out there. Tech N9ne is always a master at the bars but by teaming up with a screaming EDM artist, it definitely puts a weird spin on things. His rhymes are still dope, it just may be a little distracting trying to find them. The EDM stuff is definitely a bit much, especially for rap fans. They really aren’t gonna get into it at all. It just sounds like a sonic mess. So even though Tech N9ne is a great MC, this one isn’t gonna be for the rap fans at all. You will definitely want to skip over this one.

RIFF RAFF & YELAWOLF – TURQUOISE TORNADO

Yelawolf teams up with an absolute mess of a rapper otherwise known as Riff Raff. Yelawolf is very respectable on the mic, while on the other hand, Riff Raff is a disgrace to the art. I don’t know why they teamed up on this one, but it is what it is. With the bars, Yelawolf gives us a fast and furious complicated flow while Riff Raff drools on the mic with a vacant display of narcissism and extravagance. It’s 100% clear who the better lyricist is. The production on here is a bit of a mess. I think they were trying to go for a flashy version of Southern trap music, but it doesn’t really do much for the listener. There really aren’t any classics on here that people will be spinning back again and again. This is probably an album to skip over for most hip hop fans as there really isn’t too much redeeming value on here other than some Yelawolf bars.

GUDDA GUDDA – NINA

Gudda Gudda drops a new project and this one isn’t too good at all. The bars are very forgetful and can sometimes become jumbled to the listener. It’s just like a soupy mixture of boring lines. The beats are pretty boring as well. There really isn’t anything on here that people are going to be putting on repeat at all. I don’t even think I’d throw this on as background music at a party. This is definitely one to skip over as it doesn’t really have any redeeming qualities at all.

TORY LANEZ – PLAYBOY

Tory Lanez drops another new project for some reason. This is a forgettable album that is poorly sung throughout. It becomes abundantly clear that Tory Lanez is a narcissist that tries to let listeners know on every single song that he is having sex and he is the best at it. If you ever question if Tory Lanez is getting any, he will definitely let you know over and over and over again that he is, in fact, having sex. Everyone else is less than he is and he is the best ever. That is the vocal part of this album summed up. The beats are nothing special. You really aren’t missing out on anything here with this one. Toss it aside and keep it moving.

RAS KASS & V1C – F.W.N.A.P.

For some reason, Ras Kass teamed up with V1C to give us 4 songs of pretty much straight garbage. On the mic, Ras Kass is awesome. He always has been. There’s no denying his talent. But I’m not sure why he did this project. V1C is absolutely terrible. Please never rhyme again. His bars are chock full of “lyrical spiritual miracles” like a freshman in college that thinks he has found his calling in life and took up rapping for the semester. His bars are absolute hot trash. The beats on here are below average and not even worth spinning back again. Someone had some kind of idea for this project but we have no idea why they thought it was a good idea. Ras Kass should just distance himself from this and keep doing what he is doing. V1C, I believe UPS is hiring.

TYGA – WELL DONE FEVER

Tyga releases a new mixtape assisted by DJ Drama and this one is pretty boring overall. Every song basically sounds the same. It’s the same flow and same weak rhymes on every track. Every song is about being lit and partying with chicks. That’s fine here and there but it gets monotonous after awhile. There really is no depth at all on this project. The beats are very simple and all blend together. This was just a mess of a project. Throw this one right out in the garbage.

HELL RELL & FLEXX LUGAR – RUGA & LUGAR EP

Hell Rell teams up with an MC I had never heard of before to give us 4 new tracks on this EP. This EP is not very good at all. Hell Rell basically sounds like he sold out his sound to just sell records. He is trying to appeal to this younger audience instead of doing what he does best. It really is sad. He used to be so good and so hardcore with his bars. Now he is trying to be a sellout? Sad. This MC Flexx Lugar sounds terrible. I can’t imagine someone actually liking his music. His bars are so simplistic and not very good at all. I hope that he takes a look at a newspaper to find a new job. It’s possible that UPS is hiring.

TORY LANEZ – LONER

Tory Lanez drops a new project as if anyone in the world wanted it. NOBODY was checking for this album. There was 0 hype around this. We didn’t want this at all. The rhymes are pretty much trash throughout. He might have some kind of a flow on here, but not very often. It usually just turns into trash singing. The beats aren’t very good either. There really isn’t anything that slaps on here at all. You won’t hear this album being played at any party you are at, I can guarantee you. At this point, I would advise to try out a different career or something. We ain’t really trying to hear all this hot trash.

TOO SHORT – THE TRUNK, VOL. 3

This is a terrible new release in this series. I don’t know how much involvement Too Short actually had with this one. He had verses on maybe 2 or 3 tracks and those were good, but the majority of the rest of it was terrible. There are sing-songy new rap style crap songs on here. A lot of it is basically just filler. I would have rather had a whole Too Short album instead. The beats were nothing to write home about either. They pretty much match the quality of the lyrics. All around, this was a pretty bad album. I would definitely skip over this one.

AGALLAH – BROWNSVILLIAN 2

Agallah releases another new project and this one is pretty bad. The rhymes aren’t too good pretty much from front to back. There wasn’t anything that I was hitting that rewind button for. Agallah definitely sounds older and more tired on this project for some reason. The production was nothing special either. Most tracks were pretty bad. The song “On My Line” was just absolutely terrible. With him singing the hook, it just makes it sound really bad. “Off Canal Street” is another example of that same situation. No one is putting these types of songs in their playlists. The one song where I do have to give credit for was “Off The Cliff.” The beat on that one went pretty hard. This was a pretty terrible project from the jump off. I’d skip this one all together. Let’s hope that the next one will be better.

KHUJO GOODIE – FEED THE LIONS, VOL. 2

Khujo Goodie delivers another installment of the Feed The Lions series and although it’s slightly better than its predecessor, it’s still pretty terrible. There really isn’t too much that is salvageable here on this one. The bars aren’t too good throughout by most artists. The beats are pretty standard as well. There really wasn’t anything that reached out and grabbed my attention. The best track on this collection is probably “Paint Where It Ain’t” with T-Mo, Andre The Truth, & Snoop Dogg. That one goes a little bit better than the other tracks on here. This is pretty much one to just skip right over. Nothing to see or hear here.

G-EAZY – EVERYTHING’S STRANGE HERE

G-Eazy drops off a new project that is not a rap record at all. This is a sing-songy project of him venturing deeper into the vocal world. Rap fans will not like this one at all. I don’t want to throw it completely in the garbage, but it’s not too far away. I think he was trying to aim for some catchy songs here and there, but it just didn’t translate too well. You can tell some of the hooks were crafted with radio in mind, but overall, this project falls pretty flat. It almost reminds me of MGK trying to sing and be a pop star. This just isn’t the project we wanted to see. Definitely skip over this one.

CHRIS RIVERS – SELF INFLICTED BUBBLE BOY

Chris Rivers drops off a dud of a mixtape. This isn’t the Chris Rivers from old where he would be spitting ferocious bars with the East Coast legends and having Whispers do a fire hook. This is a watered down, sensitive, and introspective Chris Rivers. He talks about his own personal problems at great length and it gets old fast. The beats on here are pretty mediocre as well. It’s almost as if there isn’t a fire inside of him anymore. There’s no “umph” behind anything anymore. I hope it doesn’t continue like this forever. I want that old Chris Rivers back. The one that was an incredible spitter. This new album is trash.
