So 50 has been hyping the shit out of his first Gangsta Grillz mixtape, many former listeners sat back hoping he would give us that raw street music he used to give us back in the day. So does it live up to the hype? red on to find out.
Lyrically it's Fif so don't go in expecting witty punch lines and clever metaphors. So with that said I'm gonna get right to the point, on this tapes Fif spits un-memorable bars with a somewhat un inspired flow. The subject matter is Fif's usual M.O. Guns & Money, which would be acceptable if Fir didn't have so many personal things going on in his life that he could've spit about it's kinda uninspiring to hear him go to shit we've already heard him do. How ever he does do his thing on certain tracks, he spits a pretty well suited verse on 2 Chainz "Riot" and spits about chicks pretty decently on "OJ" even tho it doesn't fit the theme, He does shine on "I Ain't Gonna Lie" delivering some clever and funny lines and it does sound like some old Fif shit, but Fif please don't rap about Swag again.
The production is the tape's weakest point, a majority of tracks sound dated and lackluster which is disappointing considering it's a Gangsta Grillz tape I expected some more bangers alot of beats just plain suck. Makes me wonder if he took a time machine to buy these shits, I mean if he wanted this tape to sound like a 2004 NY mixtape he did a good job.
I don't know what the vibe is here, it's not a gritty NY sound for the streets, it's not a bangin Gangsta Grillz & it's not a revolutionary sounding game changer it's just a quirky excuse to put irrelevant newer G-Unit acts out there. It also feels boring with little to no hype on tracks theres not even a Yayo screamin "HERE WE GO NOW!"
The features are pretty weak as well new G-Unit artist and former YM member Kidd Kidd pops up on 3 tracks to deliver non-creative verses, old Aftermath rapper Hayes shows up, 2 Chainz is here against his will with his song kidnapped, Snoop comes through for whatever reason, New g-Unit Mistress Precious Paris comes through and a few R&B artist fall through for hooks but fuck all that THE BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT IS HAVING EMINEM LISTED AS A FEATURED ARTIST WHEN ALL HE DOES IS SAY 2 SENTENCES THAT DON'T EVEN RHYME!
I have no idea what Fif was trying to do with this tape, it's not overly awful but it's far from his best work and if you're gonna get features to help atlest get somebody good like Banks or somebody relevant. This lackluster tape should've stayed lost.
