LIL FLIP & CASHSTAR – MAKE IT MAKE SENSE

Lil Flip and CashStar deliver an album that is pretty standard for Lil Flip. There are 11 tracks on here in which Lil Flip gives us his regular Texas rhymes and flows. If nothing else, he is hitting for par with his delivery. The same pretty much goes for CashStar. He may not be incredible, but he gets the job done on the mic. There are features from Z-Ro, Lil Keke, Freon Icy Cold, and more. The production on this album is very similar to the vocals. There really isn’t anything incredible, but it plays through at least decently. This is a pretty standard album that fans of Lil Flip should be feeling.

LIL FLIP – FONDREN FLIP

Lil Flip delivers a new album called Fondren Flip. He has more of a laid back flow on this new project. He is still giving us those Houston, Texas style rhymes to the fullest though. You will get features from Devin The Dude, Dem Roots Music, Live Sosa, and Lashae Love. The production on here is pretty standard overall. We don’t really get a slamming Texas anthem on here, but there are some decent tracks nonetheless. All in all, it’s a pretty standard Lil Flip album. Fans will probably enjoy this one.

LIL FLIP & TUM TUM – MADE IN TEXAS 2

Lil Flip and Tum Tum team up for a second installment of their Made In Texas series. This one definitely has more of that classic Texas sound to it from the rhymes to the beats. Lil Flip and Tum Tum both sound pretty decent with the bars. They give you that verbal description of the Texas lifestyle that has become so classic. The beats are pretty decent throughout as well. They mix in some familiar samples to make the beats more appealing to a wider audience. All in all, they did a pretty good job with putting this record together.

LIL FLIP – LA CLOVER NOSTRA II (THE MOB LIVES ON)

Lil Flip assembles a huge team for this latest mixtape. He has features on just about every single song on here from the likes of Reed Dollaz, Jae Bird, Pilla, Young Stef, Big Shasta, and many, many more. The bars are a bit more stepped on on this one from everyone especially Lil Flip. He really seems to hit us with more clever punchlines than usual. They definitely do a great job spitting on the first track “La Clover Nostra II Cypher.” This one is how a posse cut should be. The standout track on this project is without a doubt “The Good Ole Days” which features Uniceson and Reed Dollaz. The beat is fantastic and the subject matter and bars sound amazing. It takes me back to what songs used to sound like back in the day. That track is pure perfection. All in all, this was a decent effort by all involved.

LIL FLIP – CRUISE CONTROL

Lil Flip drops another new project and this one he chooses to flow over a lot of classic beats and even some eclectic ones too. On the mic, he is pretty decent throughout. He’s got some slick lines and you may have to really scan through this one, but they are definitely in there. One thing that is great about Flip is the way he describes things in that classic Texas fashion. The beats on here are a bit of a mixed bag. He has some original songs and flows over some really recognizable songs. Some highlights include “I’m A Str8 Rydah” which features a sample of Kriss Kross’ “Jump.” He does a great job with handling this beat. “I’m Trill” featuring Lil Keke has a sample of Guy’s “Let’s Chill” which is a nice slowed down version of a great song. “Paradise” features a sample of Phil Collins’ “Another Day In Paradise” which might some might call an odd choice, but it sounds pretty dope. All in all, Flip keeps it Houston to the core and gives us another decent project for fans.

LIL FLIP & D-RICH THE CROWN KID – 40OZ & LEAN

Lil Flip and D-Rich The Crown Kid team up to give us this brand new project. On the mic, there really aren’t any stellar performances by either MC. Lil Flip is obviously the one with more experience, but it really doesn’t show too much on this project. I had never heard of D-Rich The Crown Kid before this and I don’t know if I will hear of him after this. The beats on here are below average throughout this album. The highlight of the project is “Oh, How It Hurts” which has a sped-up vocal sample laced in with the beat. This is the one saving grace on this album. All in all, this was a pretty sloppy performance all around. This is one you can definitely pass over.

LIL FLIP – FLIP MAYWEATHER

Lil Flip gives us a new project that is pretty decent. On the mic, his bars are not bad at all. He has a decent flow and some of his wordplay can be quite clever. If nothing else, he can be very descriptive. The beats on here are pretty standard as well. There really isn’t any classic material on here, but it’s a good listen through. It’s always good to hear from Lil Flip and he gives us a pretty standard project here with this release.

LIL FLIP & TUM TUM – MADE IN TEXAS

Lil Flip teams up with Tum Tum to give us another new project. This one isn’t too bad. It is a nice listen throughout. There really isn’t anything earth-shattering on here, but it still is a fun listen. Lil Flip gives us rhymes we would expect and does a decent job throughout as does Tum Tum. The beats are pretty average. There really isn’t anything that you are going to get stuck playing over and over again, but at the same time, it’s a decent listen. This was a good job by all parties involved.

LIL FLIP – THE LEPERCHAUN 2

Lil Flip returns with what is to be his final studio album, The Leperchaun 2. First off, this double album is massive. There are 32 tracks on here and that is way to many to get through. It’s an onslaught on the ears. As far as the lyrics go, Lil Flip is pretty decent on the mic. He definitely does a satisfactory job and you get what you expect from him on the mic. The beats are pretty standard as well. There are definitely some Houston, TX style beats sprinkled throughout which makes Lil Flip sound more authentic and true to his form. All in all, it’s a pretty decent album. I don’t think he is necessarily going out with all the grandeur that one would expect from a “last album,” but it’s still pretty decent overall. Also, why do I get the feeling, this is not the last album we will see from Lil Flip??

LIL FLIP – NO FEELINGS

This was the second part of 2 albums that Lil Flip released and this one is possibly slightly better than the first. While the first one was a little bit more calm, this one is a tad more raucous sounding. His rhymes are definitely stepped up a bit as he sounds more like classic Lil Flip. There are certainly more instances of him rhyming at a higher level if you really listen deeply. The only feature on here is from Ras Kass on the song “9/11.” The beats on this one are slightly better too. While there is nothing remotely close to classic on here, the production is still satisfactory. This one might go over a little bit better than its predecessor, but there is still more work to do on Lil Flip’s part.

Lil Flip - No Feelings

LIL FLIP – FEELINGS

Lil Flip drops 2 albums that are pretty subpar overall. This first one entitled Feelings is a sleepy, dreamy-sounding backdrop in which Lil Flip provides some average bars and shows a bit of a softer side. There are moments where you can see his lyrical ability to shine through, but not many. It’s pretty average overall as far as the writing goes. The beats on here are definitely more on the softer side. There wasn’t really any heat on here; nothing that resembled that Houston screw sound that we are used to hearing from artists like Lil Flip. This one was pretty subpar overall. I don’t think Lil Flip fans will really appreciate this one too much. It’s not terrible, but it wasn’t his best offering.

LIL FLIP – THE MUSIC MACHINE

Lil Flip is back with a very diverse collection of new songs. I don’t think that all of these styles mesh together well. He’ll have a rock song like “I Met Her In Vegas,” then a reggae-style song “Pass The Cone,” then a party song “Party Animal.” It’s not a very cohesive listen. It’s jarring to go from style to style so quickly. As far as his lyrics, Lil Flip has always been able to do his thing on the mic. I think he is at least hitting for par on the bar side of things. It’s always good to hear him spitting. I think he would do a lot better for himself to spit over those classic Houston, TX style beats. That is where he really thrives. All in all, this was a pretty average release.

LIL FLIP – THE ART OF FREESTYLE 2

Lil Flip is back with the second installment of his Art Of Freestyle series. This one is pretty decent. His rhymes are definitely better than some of his current projects. He has a knack for coming up with words and phrases that rhyme that you wouldn’t readily think of. He reps Texas to the fullest by keeping a lot of the common Texas themes in his rhymes. The beats on here are pretty average. I don’t think there’s anything really classic as far as the beats go, but at the end of they day, they are decent. I wish there was more of a sound of that classic Houston sound, but we’ll take what we can get. We always want to hear more of that chopped and screwed sound in some kind of down South anthem style song like back in the day. All in all, this was a good effort by Lil Flip.

LIL FLIP & E.J. CARTER – H TOWN TO PI TOWN

This was a pretty decent release from these two MCs. On the lyrical side of things, I think Lil Flip may have edged out E.J. Carter a bit. While Flip might not be one of the best MCs of all times, he has his moments where he really shines, and I think those will be evident on this project. Carter does his thing as well. There’s nothing really negative to say about his performance. The beats on here are decent overall. You get a good mix of down south trap beats, but with a Texas bounce to it. I think that will make it appeal to a wider audience. While this is going to be more of a favorite among Southern rap fans, I think that listeners should give this one a try. Definitely a solid effort on this project.

LIL FLIP – THE CONEHEADS

Lil Flip hits us with a mixtape basically dedicated to weed. I wouldn’t say this is a great album, but it isn’t whack either. It’s a smoothed out vibe that is all about that green plant for y’all to smoke to and chill out to. His bars are nothing monumental, but you can definitely hear his level of skill on some of his verses. He does a decent job rhyming but it’s just sometimes when he attempts to sing melodically, it just doesn’t work. The beats are more of a laid back vibe which you would expect with a project like this. This isn’t something you are going to be listening to during the party, but rather after it’s over and a few people are left just chilling. Not a great album, but not a bad one either.

LIL FLIP – LA CLOVER NOSTRA (CLOVER GANG)

This is not a very good effort from Lil Flip. There’s a lot wrong with this project. First of all, it is way too long. 22 tracks and a lot of it is garbage. The tracks that Flip rhymes on, he actually does pretty decent with his bars. He was always good lyrically and that is evidenced on his performances. The featured guests he has on this project are pretty much all trash. None of them can spit very well. There are no verses that are rewind-worthy. Some of them even try to copy that mumble rap, Migos-type flow that is so played out. The production on here is pretty bad as well. Some of the songs they created are all but unlistenable. Songs like “Moon Rock,” “Everyday,” and “Everybody Move” are the song equivalent of dumpster fires. This was sad because Lil Flip is dope. Let’s get him back on some Texas sounding records where he is just spitting fire.

LIL FLIP – BLACK FRIDAY 2

Lil Flip, one of the down south legends is back at it with another mixtape. This one starts out strong and sort of trails off as it goes. As far as lyrics, Lil Flip has always been pretty dope. I think he is definitely capable of delivering some tight rhymes. He is just more of the type of MC that needs the right beat to really shine. He definitely does his thing on the mic with this project but I think the beats may be the culprit here. While they are at least somewhat decent, there is just something missing as you go from track to track. Can’t quite put my finger on it, but there is something more that is needed. The highlight of this project has to be the first song “Crack.” This beat is fantastic and Flip flows flawlessly over it. Maybe he just needed some more forceful beats and harder drums for the rest of the songs. This is a decent effort from Lil Flip though.

LIL FLIP – KING LIFE

The down south legend is back and he drops off a new studio album. To be fair, we have heard most of this before in the form of his letter EPs that he had just dropped off. I don’t think I like that method of marketing for an album. When an album is dropped, I want to hear almost all of it in its entirety like it’s brand new. So that being said, this album was decent. A lot of the tracks sounded okay as I have previously reviewed. I think some of the tracks he definitely tried to sell out and sound like the current sound of hip hop which just sounds whack when anyone does it. Some of the other tracks sound pretty good though. I think it has a club vibe mixed with a down south Houston Texas sound to it. It’s always good to hear that screwed-up Texas sound from time to time. I don’t really think he came with a standout single here as the project just sounds like one cohesive sound. It would have also been good to have something for the radio on here. All in all though, not a bad job by Lil Flip at staying hot out in these streets.

LIL FLIP – G EP

This EP was probably the most average one out of the series. These were 4 tracks that were almost forgettable. Lyrically Flip didn’t do too bad. He was ok at best. He’s not getting verse of the month or anything like that. Beats were decent. Nothing that I am putting on repeat, but nothing that I would throw away either. This one just sort of was. I probably should have listened to all of them together and did a review on all 4 in the series but breaking it up seemed a better way to go. We definitely look forward to the album Flip.

LIL FLIP – K EP

This EP was quick and probably the lowest of quality out of the series of EPs. Flip I think tried to go for that trap feel with these songs. Lyrically I don’t think he was at his best either. This just seemed like more of trying to sound like a lot of other music that is out there today. The beats definitely sounded very similar to a lot of the trap beats that are out today. With these EPs though, there really isn’t a whole lot of time wasted if you want to check them out though. I’d probably skip this one though.

This is the 2nd of 2 quick EPs that Flip dropped off for fans. Like the first one, this one is quick and to the point. It is almost a mirror image of the recipe for the first EP. At four tracks, there isn’t much room to give the fans too much, but lyrically, Lil Flip gets the job done. He has some witty phrases and his flow is pretty tight. The beats again, are pretty average. There is nothing that is too memorable here. If you liked the first one and you like Lil Flip, you will probably think this EP and the prior one are pretty dope.

LIL FLIP – THE ART OF FREESTYLE

This was a quick release from Lil Flip who we haven’t heard from in a long time. Initially I thought this release was going to be him freestyling over already released beats but it is all new material. The rhymes are ok. Not too bad for a Houston artist. He has more of a freestyle flow on this project, possibly hence the name of the mixtape. The beats leave a little to be desired. I would have rather heard that classic Texas chopped and screwed sound. I think overall Flip does a decent job but knowing what he is capable of, i think he could have done a lot better with this release. I would have much rather seen him spend his time on perfecting a studio LP than this. At the same time though, it definitely is something to keep the fans fed.
