But lemme get to tHe facts of tHe matter n wHat Have you… Aint no secret tHat the Top Dawg Entertainment/Black Hippy movement been gettin stronger ey’day. Niggas stay gettin talked bout for tHe right reasons tHo…not for gimmicky sHit or for tHe sHit tHey do that dont got notHin to do wit music…not for Hoe shit or for wHo they got beef wit etc. So we not gon get into tHat neither naHmean. We not gon talk bout How tHe Grammys sHitted on Kendrick or How IsaiaH RasHad jus dropped some audio melatonin on tHe world in the form of Cilvia Demo but been gettin madpraise for that or How Jay Rock’s Follow Me Home still one tHe most slept on joints of tHe last 10 years n sHoulda at least went gold or How Ab Soul migHt lowkey be tHe best lyricist out tHe whole crew…we gon speak directly on tHe music once again cuz at tHe end of tHe day tHats all I gives a fuck bout yo. So we gon get into tHis OxyMoron sHit rigHt mutHafuckin now b…
1. Gangsta – StraigHt out tHe gate son Hittin niggas over tHe Head wit tHat ignorant sHit we done come to expect from Homie… THis tHat quintessential Q sHit namsayin. If you lookin for tHat antHem to yap seniors citizens comin outta the IHOP to…you good. You need some background music for wHen you Hit a lick or vandalize some prescHools? Ayo you good. You can discipline ya kids to tHis sHit b. You can pistol wHip ya neigHbors to tHis sHit… Its like endless possibilities for you to exercise ya ignorance to some sHit like tHis son. I definitely fucks wit tHis joint b.
2. Los Awesome (feat. Jay Rock) – THis sHit slaps like Ike yo… Hats off to PHarrell for tHat beat son. Get it? HATS OFF.
THis Hook is all Skateboard P too bruH. But yo remember How Jay Rock stepped His whole sHit up on Money Trees so He wouldnt get wasHed by Kendrick? Son doubled up n did tHat sHit again n got on some extra inconsiderate sHit… Niggas found the fountain of ignorance n submerged tHeyselves in tHat sHit b. THis tHat sHit you C-walk into tHe cHurch durin Sunday mass too. I dont give a McMiniFuck wHat yall late 90s babies tHats scared of a little noise got to say bout all tHat. I seen yall little marsHmallow filled kitten in mittens ass niggas cryin on twitter talmbout THIS SHIT HURT MY EARS BAE… WHY ITS SO LOUD N BUSY FOR BAE…. but tHats cuz yall aint grow up on no music tHat Had masculine traits to it. Yalls grew up on tHat Happy go lucky ass MTV friendly sHit b. THeres a reason wHy M.O.P. aint never do no joints wit Lupe Fiasco or Kid Cudi bruH… Certain patHs jus dont never cross yo. Yalls lowered ya guards n before yall knew it…Drake Had catfisHed tHe wHole game b. Now yall scared. FuckouttaHere.
3. Collard Greens (feat. Kendrick Lamar) – So Here go tHat Kendrick x Q collabo tHat dropped a wHile back… To me tHis sHit was a slow burner b… I wasnt really feelin no particular way bout it til tHe album dropped. Now tHat I let my eardrums marinate in tHat some more I appreciate tHe simplicity n tHe flyer elements of the record naHmean. For example wHen Kendrick spits the little spanisH sHit at the start of His verse…How you gon be mad at tHat? THat was a fly ass look. CHicks love tHat sHit son. Yall kno wHat Happens wHen females Hear niggas tHats not pose to be speakin spanisH speak tHat shit rigHt? THat sHit lubricates tHe panties yo. Im speakin strictly from experience fam cuz Ion be speakin tHat sHit…but wHen I do? Forget about it ma…tHose La Perla sHits is gon slide rigHt off yall like butter yo. Amongst tHe otHer benefits of tHe track you got tHe rHytHm of tHe beat itself wHich be goin like cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka cHicka…n tHat sHit itself keeps you locked into tHe groove naHmean. I aint mad at tHis at all yo… But tHese niggas musta been playin wit some funny ass guns growin up cuz the gunsHot sounds they be makin be like DOOT DOO DOO DOO DOO! YAWK YAWK YAWK YAWK! Im sayin…imagine tHese fools in a gunfight b. I actually fucks wit tHis sHit kinda Heavy tHo.
4. WHat THey Want (feat. 2 CHainz) – Hoe enabler/Future Miley Cyrus baby’s daddy Mike Will Made It made tHis… Imma get off topic for a minute n explain wHy I kinda cant stand tHat mutHafucka b. First of all fuck a Mike Will Made It beat. I aint gassed by none of tHat sHit son. How insecure was tHis nigga growin up b? How tHis sHit start yo? Im guessin it was some sHit like in Kindergarten wHen anotHer little nigga took credit for a ball of playdoH tHat Mike Will Made It Had rolled n drew a face on. THe teacHer seen the PlaydoH ball wit tHe face Mike Will Made It Had drew on it but aint kno wHo it belonged to n said to tHe class WOW CLASS WHO MADE THIS YO? THIS BALL OF PLAYDOH LIKE NO OTHER PLAYDOH BALL I EVER SEEN YALL…WHOEVER THE NIGGA THAT MADE THIS DESERVES A GOLD STAR N GETS TO WEAR THE MAGIC HAT FOR THE DAY n tHen some little trife nigga said THATS MINES n turned His Head to ice grill tHe young Mike Will Made It wHo was straigHt sHook n put His Hand down cuz He aint wanna catcH a bad one in tHe playground at recess n so He watcHed as tHe otHer little nigga flourisHed in tHe magic Hat for the rest of tHe day. Gotta be some sHit like tHat rigHt? Anyways tHis sHit sound like a lot of otHer Mike Will Made It beats n I woulda said tHat sHit even if Mike Will Made It aint made this sHit at all. But wHo else gon make some sHit like this otHer tHan tHat nigga Mike Will Made It? Q did his tHing on tHis but soon as 2 CHainz jumped on tHe track talmbout “Jus because I got dreads..dont get it twisted” you already knew tHe sHit wasnt gon be notHin special.
5. Hoover Street – Fam…tHis sHit be like 1:30 min into tHe song before tHe intro wrapped up. I tHought it was sometHin wrong wit tHe beat at first… But its cool. Musically it aint notHin ridiculous but its a cool joint. THe last verse definitely tHe best one on tHe wHole album so far. Anyways far as tHe song go I fucks wit it but I dont all tHe way fucks wit it super Hard or notHin. Last verse still fire tHo.
6. Studio (feat. BJ THe Chicago Kid) – THe last great love rap song was PusHa-T’s “Trust You”. In tHe meantime tHe great Freddie Gibbs done blessed us witta couple tougH ballads too…but tHis is some flames bruH. I fucks wit tHis shit so Heavy even tHo it migHt not be relatable for dudes wHo never found tHeyself standin in a mic bootH waitin to spit some 16s wHen all tHey really wanna do is get Home to tHat special lady in tHey life n beat. Some niggas aint in toucH wit tHey feelings like tHat tHo. MeanwHile its rap dudes tHat can be open bout shit like tHat… AYE GIRL…IM IN THE STU RIGHT NOW TRYNA SPIT THESE ANIMAL BARS N THESE BEATS IS SLAPPIN BUT ALL I REALLY REALLY WANNA DO IS COME THRU N HIT THAT YANNO… Romance is dead tHo. Plus niggas is on tHat simp sHit kinda Heavy tHese days namsayin.
7. Prescription/Oxymoron – THe verses on Prescription probably tHe best ones Q spit since “Brand New Guy”…not tHat tHey got anytHing to do wit eacHother cuz tHis sHit bout drug dependency n bein at tHe bottom morally to tHe point wHere you ignorin pHone calls from ya seeds n sHit like tHat n “Brand New Guy” was basically A$AP Rocky n Q talkin mad sHit bout bein young n doin wHatever tHe fuck tHey want n sHittin on old rappers. OtHer half of tHe song is some ignorance galore tHo. I JUS STOPPED SELLIN CRACK TODAY migHt be one my favorite simple ignorant hooks (think KEYS OPEN DOORS KEYS OPEN DOORS KEYS OPEN DOORS KEYS KEYS OPEN DOORS) in a minute. I fucks wit tHis sHit…migHt be tHe most impressive track on tHe album wHich is dope cuz aint notHin worse tHan wHen tHe title track of a mutHafuckas album is some trasH (tHink Cole World, Take Care, Nastradamus etc…)
8. THe Purge (feat. Tyler, THe Creator & Kurupt) – THis sHit grimy yo… THis tHe kinda beat wHere eitHer you fucks wit it or you wanna tHrow a brick at a baby deer (also known as a fawn for tHose of yall wHo not familiar wit wildlife terms) cuz tHe sHit be gettin on ya last nerves. Lucky for me I came up on Public Enemy joints n gotta HigH tolerance for noise cuz I wasnt blossomed in no meadow of flowers like summa yall little niggas tHat only fuck wit tHat sweet sHit wit Hooks sung by clown precum babies like Kirko Bangz wHo got not even a little bit of purpose in bein alive in tHe first place namsayin. Anyways Tyler comes tHru on tHe Hook n Kurupt Young Gotti spits a solid verse tHat sounds like He either goin off tHe top His Head or tHe sHit took Him bout 75 seconds to write. I fucks wit tHis tHo.
9. Blind THreats (feat. Raekwon) – THe beat on tHis track is like some tHrowback LA stoner sHit… Summa yall migHt remember How Cypress Hill flipped the same sample on tHe “Illusions” joint. THis a dope flip tho so I aint mad at it. THe god Raekwon comes tHru n blesses tHe track witta butter verse n laces tHis sHit. THis some fly ass sHit you can pop on in the Hooptie n roll down the boulevard to wHile puffin on sHerm sticks n it gon Have you feelin like you pusHin a Fleetwood Caddy namsayin. As yall alrady kno…I fucks wit fly sHit.
10. Hell Of A Night – THis is some otHer sHit bruH cuz I swear it be feelin like some EDM sHit bout to Happen but it dont all the way go down tHat patH…wHicH is cool by me cuz tHat aint really wHat Im tryna Hear on tHis album b. THis Shit actually kinda fire tHo. Its like some Hipster trap EDM sHit witta little Enya mixed in…wHich sHould actually be wack as fuck but it managed to dodge tHat bullet… so I aint Hatin.
11. Break THe Bank – The Hardest workin producer in Hip Hop rigHt now blessed tHe boy Quincy wit His presence on tHe boards for tHis record. Homie already dropped tHe best produced album of 2014 so far wit His mans Evidence (as Step BrotHers). THis beat not exactly on tHe level of tHe sHit ALC cooked up on Lord Steppington…but sHit also dropped last year so He was probably savin tHe illest sHit for His own project. THats cool tHo cuz I would do tHe same sHit if I was in His sHoes namsayin. Not to mention son already dropped like 350 projects in tHe last year or whatever…so tHat well He keep goin back to migHt be runnin kinda dry by now. Anyways Q’s delivery on tHis track is like some gangstafied CHance THe Rapper type sHit. I kno the little niggas love tHis sHit. It aint my personal favorite or notHin but at tHe same time I do fucks wit it.
12. Man Of THe Year – First time I Heard tHis joint I wasnt really feelin it like tHat naHmean. Wasnt notHin to do wit it bein some commercial single type sHit tHo cuz I do fucks wit some commercial sHit tHat got mainstream appeal n wHatnot. Contrary to wHat niggas be tHinkin bout me I dont jus be lampin on a stack of old Source magazines listenin to vintage Mobb Deep records in CarHartt gear all day. I fucks wit all types of music…different genres n subgenres n wHat have you…. SometHin bout it aint grab me tho… THe video made me give it bout 10 more cHances tHo n now I fucks wit it.
13. His & Her Friend (feat. SZA) – THis tHe first “bonus”… n basically sHit is a interlude bruH…but most interludes dont usually be lastin 3 mins dig? SHit is all types of outta tune n off key tHo. You gotta fuck wit mad drugs to be able to appreciate tHis yo. But I aint a lean sipper…I dont fuck wit prometHazine or codeine or none of tHat. I dont need drugs to enjoy myself b…I jus sniff some coke n Im good yo. So tHis sHit serves zero purpose in my life bruH.
14. Grooveline Pt. 2 (feat. Suga Free) – THis nigga Suga Free a forreal pimp in case you aint familiar wit tHat mutHafuckas pedigree like tHat yo. Far as tHe track go…tHe beat cool n all.. but I likes to tHink we moved past tHis type of sHit as a culture n a society in general b. Im sayin like How many yall little niggas is gon relate to sHit like tHis? Talmbout CAN YOU SELL THIS P*SSY FOR ME? THis How we treatin our queens son? In 2014? Cmon son…CAN YOU SELL THAT ASS FOR ME SO I CAN PAY SOME BILLS MA? LIKE I WANNA ORDER SOME PIZZA BUT I FORGOT MY BREAD AT THE CRIB N I ONLY GOTTA 10 ON ME BUT I WANNA ORDER SOME CINNASTIX WIT THAT MUTHAFUCKA…YOU COOL WIT SERVIN THAT COOCH TO THE DELIVERY MAN MA?Like Im sayin tHese niggas got daughters bruH. Lets jus keep tHis sHit 100 namsayin. Every nigga cool talkin all tHis pimp sHit til somebody try tHat sHit wit tHey loved ones b… Niggas be Havin exceptions n exclsuions n wHatever. Like AAAAAAAALL FEMALES IS B*TCHES SON….ALL EM B*TCHES IS HOES TOO…EXCEPT MY MOMMA N MY DAUGHTERS BRUH…N GRANDMA CUZ SHE USE TO MAKE ME SNACKS N SHIT…SO ION WANT NONE OF EM TO SELL THEY COOCH FOR ME…N MY AUNTIES….OH N THE LADY NEXT DOOR SHE BE HAVIN A HARD LIFE BUT SHE STILL TAKE CARE OF HER KIDS SO I RESPECT HER…SHE DONT GOTTA SELL NO P*SSY FOR ME NEITHER… Listen bruH…a song is jussa song but sHit like tHis dont do notHin for the seeds namsayin. THis nigga Q got tHe attention of mad babies rigHt now naHmean. Yungins wanna rock bucket Hats n floral print sHirts n get face tats like that nigga… THey wanna pop oxycontin n get lit to His music. I aint sayin He a role model or notHin n I fucks wit ignorant sHit Heavy son… I mean I came up on Too $Hort joints myself namsayin. But I understood He was playin a cHaracter in His music b. $Hort aint get into His personal life in His music or make you tHink you really connectin wit anytHing other tHan sons persona for over 30 years now bruH. On tHe otHer Hand tHe nigga Q tryna give you some perspective on wHo He is as a actual man in His music b. So for me tHis sHit jus sendin mixed signals to His younger fans namsayin. THats unless you really tHink Homie tryna put females on the Hoe stroll to get Him some dougH like tHat. A nigga like Snoop can get away wit sHit like tHis cuz I truly believe son would pimp out some females like forreal. I believe tHat yo… THat man would do damn near anytHing for some scratcH. His sHit believable. But at tHe same time I get tHat Q tryna tell a story…tHis aint biograpHical sHit. I HEard He got His name from a real actual pimpin cat named ScHoolboy tHo. He adopted Homie name n wHatever. Anyways I aint tryna be like sHame on tHis nigga…jus givin yall my personal reasons for wHy Ion really be fuckin wit tHis track too Heavy. Also Grooveline Pt 1 was fly as Hell to me n tHis sHit jus aint really on tHat level.
15. Fuck LA – THis tHat Q sHit niggas done grew accustomed to over tHese last few years. Ignorance at its finest… THis shit a musical middle finger basically… n son aint really sayin sHit other tHan fuck everytHing on tHis record. Definitely tHat sHit you can punch some fuckboys in tHe face to tHo.
…n more bonus tracks…
16. PusHaman – THis some pimpisH sHit again. I fucks wit tHis shit hard tho… Even tHo its jus some more interlude type sHit n He aint really spit one bar on it forreal. THis track actually more pimpisH tHan tHe Grooveline Pt 2 joint. But its like He pimpin em drugs…
17. Californication (feat.A$AP Rocky) – Anytime tHese dudes collab on some sHit tHey be comin wit some fire. I really feel like tHey gotta do a whole project togetHer b…like on some real sHit. WHile some yall be wastin prayers beggin tHe rap gods to make tHat Kendrick collab wit J. Cole aka the Human nap come to fruition…real cats be knowin tHis wHere tHey sHould place tHey faitH at. Anyways tHis probably aint my fav collab between em but its still dope. Rocky sound kinda like Cam’ron spittin Wiz KHalifa verses on tHis sHit tHo. Like I said tHo…sHit aint tHe best collab (“Brand New Guy” still got tHat locked) but its solid. Word is bond… I fucks wit it.
….n the other bonus tracks…
Gravy – If you copped tHe iTunes version of tHe album tHey done tHrew in tHis track… wHich really aint notHin special…but its straigHt. SHit dont sound notHin like any otHer Clams Casino joints to me… Son really came wit a wHole new feel…but it aint like its better tHan His otHer sHit…its jus different from it. Its some pretty regular sHit at tHe end of tHe day to be Honest yo. I wouldnt Hit tHe skip on it but I aint gon go out my way to put tHe sHit on neitHer naHmean. THats word to ya moms b.
Yay Yay – WHen I Heard tHis sHit back wHenever it dropped last year I was like NAW GET THIS YO GOTTI-ESQUE SHIT OUTTA HERE SON…IF I WANNA LISTEN TO SHIT LIKE THIS IMMA THROW ON SOME WACK ASS RICH HOMIE QUAN SON…FUCKOUTTAHERE . But its some catcHy sHit…I aint mad at it. I fucks wit it more tHan I sHould… Lets jus put it like tHat yo.
So tHats tHat. Overall I tHink we all expected more from son… Homie said on tHe “Break THe Bank” track tHat He was comin for Kendrick crown n wHatever. Soooo….mission NOT accomplisHed as far as tHat sHit go…but not a bad try. Lotta cats tHat was dieHard fans a montH ago wasnt feelin tHis album too mucH…but I feel like tHey gon come back to it n appreciate it more over time namsayin. Personally Im jus glad IsaiaH RasHad aint nowHere to be found on tHis mutHafucka… I think son makes joints strictly for dudes wHo rock tHe same wifebeater 5 days in a row n got Halitosis b. You can feel sorry for tHat nigga all you want but all He do is flip all em Black Hippy dudes styles n make em less impressive over boring ass beats. THats my little bonus cilvia Demo review for yall.
Anyways yo…Ionno wHich version of tHe album I sHould be ratin since the actual lp only pose to be 12 tracks yanno… Im thinkin tHe 17 track Target version maybe cuz tHats tHe one I copped tHo. Ayo n niggas need to cHill wit all tHese bonus tracks n deluxe editions n special exclusive sHits tHo son. WHen we copped sHit like Hell HAth No Fury (a classic 12 track album tHat Had damn near no filler wHatsoever) wasnt no OTHER versions of it to get confused by. It was jus the one mutHafuckin version yo…n ey’body Had tHe same one. I get we livin in a different age but somebody needed to pump tHey brakes on tHis sHit cuz niggas jus be gettin confused son. THis is some interscope sHit tHo. Like yall realize tHat it was 6 different versions of Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City? It was like 8 different bonus tracks on tHat 12 track mutHafuckin album yo. Cats need to stop all tHat stupid sHit. Anyways…for yall niggas wHo aint part wit tHe extra 2 bucks for one the deluxe bonus tracks havin versions n ended up coppin tHe 12 track joint somewHere instead n aint illegally download all 19 tracks after tHe fact or notHin like tHat…Imma hold yall down n give you botH ratings. More aint always more for me so I aint get gassed by extra songs like tHat…I prefer some tHought get put into tHe sequencing (maybe Los Awesome…dope as it is…sHoulda slid in between tracks 4 n 5 or 6 n 7…some sHit like tHat)…n personally I tHink “Man Of THe Year” woulda been a solid closer (” Fuck LA” aint really Had tHe same impact namsayin). But How many yall stop tHe album after “Man Of THe Year”? Like if we talkin albums n not jussa collection of songs its better ways to sequence tHis sHit b. GKMC got tHat sHit right n ended on “Compton”. Im sayin like if you copped the retail sHit not the iTunes version or wHatever. You gotta pHysically tHrow on the next CD or record if you want tHe sHit to end on a tHrowaway like “Now Or Never” feat. (tHe formerly great but tHese days wild unnecessary) Mary J Blige or some shit like tHat. Feel me? OtHer issue I Had was tHeres no Druggys Wit Hoes reunion wit Ab-Soul on tHis sHit son. But yo…I already said my piece naHmean. Lemme wrap tHis sHit up…
Ayo I gives tHis sHit 3.5 Zeus Slaps outta 5 for tHe 17 track deluxe joint…
…n 4 Zeus Slaps outta 5 for tHe 12 track version (Quality control b)
