Review #1,696: Master P "MP Da Last Don"

Reviewed on 3.22.2017 (Review #1,696)


Happy 56th day in a row of reviewin’ CDs & only four more dayz till my dream comes true!! My next review iz a double disc! Too bad I stayed up a lil’ later, last night & am gonna have me a nice lil’ shmoke, this early, so I gon have to split up this review… My next review iz Master P MP Da Last Don, released in 1998 on No Limit Records & Priority Records!
Disc 1: Start Time: 2:02 AM | End Time: 2:56 AM
Disc 2: Start Time: 12:29 PM | End Time: 1:14 PM
Overall: Start Time: 2:02 AM | End Time: 1:14 PM


Disclaimer: I rate each song from 1.0 – 5.0; each rating iz my own opinion! I only please myself wit my ratings! I don’t care how lyrical you are, as long as it’s jammin’ enough for me to like it! I look for beats, then vocals, and then lyrics. To determine my favorites, I will differ tha 4.0 ratings. If a song gets at least a 4.0 rating from me, I love it already. If at least a 4.6 rating, I pretty much really love it, as it’s considered mindblowin’ when I hear it! Any song can earn up to a maximum of a 5.0 rating. Anything I type before “ >>> “ iz what I’m sayin’ before I listen to tha song; anything after I type “ >>> “ iz what I think of tha song while I’m listening to it. If you sound like anything too mainstream for me, have auto-tune in your vocals, or talk about nothin’ but money and hoes (which I consider ‘typical’ topics), I’m not buyin’ it!

07. “Ride”
Sons Of Funk beat… >>> Just sounds like a simple track, here; nice hook and beat goin’ on, here, with not much to do but “ride.” Here we are with tha 1st verse, here, soundin’ nice ta hear wit your “ughs” and style, of course! Good 2nd verse, too, wit what you got goin’ on, here, ta continue… Why all tha censorin’ toward tha end? Such a fuckin’ turn-off!!

10. “Black & White” feat. Silkk The Shocker & Fiend
Craig B beat… >>> Random skit fa tha intro, here… Well, not too random; not feelin’ tha racist shit… I don’t like when y’all get downed… My dream comin’ true in four dayz finna define somethin’ and I’m lookin’ forward to it! I don’t get to see African Americans that often, so this gon be somethin’ special, fa me! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it ain’t bad, here; diggin’ this beat’s vibe, at least… Tha G-Funk vibes are so pure in tha beat, here!!

Mo B. Dick on tha production! >>> Sounds like a nice lil’ slow jam, here; feelin’ tha dark vibes… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s not bad, here… Tha hook sounds like a bunch of loud voices, here? Not sure what ta say about it… And, Bun Bizzle on tha 2nd verse and it sounds nice, here… Well, what happened at 2:12? Turned into Babyface? Bad rippin’ goin’ on, here? Well, I’ono what happened but this was decent from what I heard… My Rating: 3.5

04. “So Many Souls Deceased” feat. The Commission
Carlos Stephens doin’ this track… >>> Diggin’ tha eerie vibes on tha hook, P! Crazy that I’ve “seen” a few “souls deceased,” so far, and yeah, it does change life! I always thought life was tha same for so long and then, my brother died! But, I’m here to continue! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds nice from you, P! Keepin’ it movin’ wit some Commissionary dudes, here, on tha 2nd verse, holdin’ it down… And, a 3rd verse from The Commission, here, soundin’ nice ta hear, as well… My Rating: 4.0

06. “Snitches” feat. Snoop Dogg
DJ Darryl on tha track… >>> Sounds like a paranoid run from tha “police,” here, on tha intro… Snoop on tha 1st verse and he comin’ through, dodgin’ and evadin’! Sounds like a long 1st verse, here, but it goes… Here comes you on tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ nice wit your happy/angry aggression… And, an outro, here; not bad… My Rating: 3.6

Crazy-ass Mystikal on tha 2nd verse, here, not even credited!! Luv how he just came outta nowhere!! Sounds like a more-hype version of Mystikal on tha 3rd verse, here; pretty intense! My Rating: 4.2


09. “Goodbye To My Homies” feat. Silkk The Shocker, Mo B. Dick & Sons Of Funk
MP beat… >>> So slow, I can fall asleep on tha spot!! I’m yawnin’ as we speak!! *Yawns…* Luckily, I have Music Choice Dance in tha background, keepin’ me awake and anticipated! As far as this track, tha hook and beginning’s almost a minute long, soundin’ slow and draggin’… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s not bad wit what you’re bringin’ to tha table, here, as far as tha story… I can’t really buy this boring, slow shit… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s almost as slow as a spoken word-type track… Tha 3rd verse sounds even more spoken-word than tha previous verse!

12. “Make ‘Em Say Ugh (Part 2)” feat. Fiend, Mia X, Silkk The Shocker & Snoop Dogg
KLC track; anotha version! >>> An intro, here; sounds like it gon be anticipatin’… Sounds like tha beat iz officially remixed, here, into a sequel to tha original version, here… Still, definitely nice, overall! Diggin’ tha extra-uptempo vibe! My Rating: 4.5


13. “Hot Boys & Girls” feat. Kane, Abel, Mia X, Mystikal & Silkk The Shocker
A Craig B beat… >>> Sounds like a dope lil’ slow beat, here; good shit I’m expectin’… I’m really feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha hook! Almost has, like, a “Down For My Niggas”-type voice goin’ on, here; definitely dope! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s pretty dope!
