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.
Hell Rell comes back with another new project for the streets. While it is absolutely refreshing to hear from any of the Diplomat members, Hell Rell falls a little short with this newest project. It sounds more like a trap record than the classic Diplomat sound and that can be disappointing. On the mic, Hell Rell isn’t bad. It’s just that he doesn’t sound as great as he once did. The beats on here are definitely the half that suffers more. It really is more reminiscent of the trap sound than anything else. All in all the record definitely needed some improvement. I think if Hell Rell went back to his roots, he could really create something hard. Until then, we just have to hope for that record.
The Diplomat veteran drops a quick five track EP possibly attempting a comeback. Hell Rell was always dope and always had hard street bars. He brings more of that same heat with this new project. On the mic, he sounds as fresh as he always has with a new batch of some hard, street rhymes. The production on this is decent as well. It sounds like he selected some pretty decent beats. He even gets JR Writer to spit a verse with him on “Baking Soda Bible” showing that their relationship is still strong. The highlight of this short project is “Pandemic” in which his bars are extra focused on getting that money coming through the pandemic. All in all, this was a dope project that hopefully signals the return of Hell Rell.
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.
This is an insanely horrible album. First of all, the name Ghost The Incredible is false advertising. There is nothing incredible about this MC. You have to have incredible patience to even get through this entire record. I did not have that patience. I don’t even know why they say that Hell Rell is a part of this. He is featured on maybe 3 songs. What a dumb idea for Hell Rell to even get on this mess. I guess maybe that the money is running low and some low level rapper that managed to get his hands on some cash made Hell Rell hop on this mess of a project. Ghost the Incredible should never ever rap again. Please, for the love of God, hang it up already. Go and get a job mopping the floor at your nearest convenience center. Don’t ever write rhymes again, please. The rhymes are super trash. The beats aren’t much better. The only one that stood out was the reworking of Jay-Z’s “Dynasty Intro” on “Sippin Pain.” Other than that, this album is a complete dumpster fire. Don’t even google this mess.
Hell Rell drops off a new project. Weighing in at 10 tracks, this is a good size project to showcase what the Diplomat rapper has been up to. This is a pretty standard release overall. His bars were decent. I actually think he did a better job than I expected him to do. You can still hear the hunger in his voice when he spits just as he did when he first came out with the Dipset. The production was average on here. A few tracks were a little bit under the standard that I was expecting but, overall not too bad. The highlight of the album is probably “Problem.” It’s a laid back beat where Ruger Rell just spits hard bars like he did in the past. It’s got a good interpolated hook to it as well which was appreciated. Hell Rell is letting all of y’all know he is still a problem for rappers in this game today.
First off, I love the idea of calling this project The Upstage. That is pure brilliance right there. You know that is in direct reference to the Diplomats project coming out on the same day. I don’t know why these dudes were left off of the Diplomat project. They were all integral parts of that whole camp’s success. To have a reunion and just leave them out is just sacrilege. With this project though, I think they honestly may have done what they set out to do and upstage Cam, Jim, and Juelz. Lyrically, they are all spitting that classic Diplomat fire on this project. The lyrics on here are definitely better than the the ones on the Diplomat project. You get top notch bars and metaphors from all of them. They are very clever and well thought-out. This was the kind of spitting we were used to back when they were doing their thing as a camp. The beats on this one were decent. I think over time, they lost a lot of the momentum and aren’t as hot out in the industry as they once were. This doesn’t allow them as easy as access to the hottest beats out there. Nonetheless, there are some dope tracks on here. If nothing else, this project is consistent. That is hard to do nowadays, but they have managed to do it. They showed everyone that they don’t need the big doggs to continue to spit heat. I really hope we see a lot more work from everyone in Dipset and I hope that they can all work together again as they did in the past.
This was a bit of a different release out of the norm from what we normally do here, but a dope listen all around. This producer WalyO did a great thing and took some verses from the Diplomat camp and made some dope tracks for them to be laid over top of. It pretty much goes without saying that the Diplomat members can all spit. So lyrically, you pretty much have to give them all the credit they deserve for dope verses since we have already heard them before on previous releases. The beats on here were pretty dope overall. I think WalyO is definitely working with something here. I’d definitely like to hear more from him. It’s not quite what the Heatmakerz had done for the Diplomats, but it is a fresh and dope sound that serves this creation well.
This project should have been called S.H.I.T. because that is what it is. I don’t know who told Spud Mack that he can rap, but please, for the love of God could one of his loved ones tell him that this line of work is not for him. Stick to the day job of waiting tables or something. In the classic B.I.G. advice, UPS is hiring. Put that mic down and step away and never touch it again. His rhymes were awful and he even managed to bring down the level of Hell Rell as well. He was always pretty good as a Dipset member but Hell Rell, this was not a good move for you my brother. The beats are all but trash on here. Every song I was thinking, “God I can’t wait for this to be over.” Do yourself a huge favor and hit every fast forward button you can on this one. Straight trash.
Hell Rell drops a long awaited mixtape here and Diplomat fans rejoice. This was very much needed in the game. Hell Rell comes back hard with this project. He sounds hungry and refreshed on here. The rhymes are great. Blatant bragging and crime bars dominate his subject material which is what we have come to love about Hell Rell. The beats are decent as well. They are reminiscent of old Dipset material but also sound updated to match with today’s styles. This is a decent attempt at a comeback. There aren’t really any standout tracks but at the same time, there is nothing that is really trash on this project either. It’s a good listen the whole way through. If you are a Dipset fan, definitely peep this joint out.
