Review #1,719: Prime Suspects "Guilty 'Til Proven Innocent"

Reviewed on 4.28.2017 (Review #1,719)


Happy late birthday to my brother, Mike; he woulda been 27 today! Yesterday was nice out, so I ain’t accomplisih anything, really, except relaxin’… Lemme get into my next review, tho, from my marathon: Prime Suspects Guilty ‘Til Proven Innocent, released in 1998 on No Limit Records & Priority Records! Start Time: 1:40 AM | End Time: 2:58 AM


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!

19. “Fear”
Carlos Stephens did this one… >>> This sounds like a nice, eerie beat/hook, here! I’m feelin’ it! Too bad I have, like, no “fear,” these dayz! I explained it earlier in this review; gotta luv myself! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s nice, here; pretty gangsta—too gangsta, lol? It sounds like it’s delivered in such a quiet way, but tha gangsta aggression’s hidden in tha lyrics! Tha 2nd verse’s pretty nice, too; good shit, here… Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 3rd verse and it’s soundin’ nice, as well… My Rating: 4.2


20. “Children Of The Corn” feat. Peaches
Endin’ wit a Mo B. Dick track… >>> Likin’ how tha intro be like, “Smokin’ on dat doulja…;” nice, gangsta-soundin’ track, here! Feelin’ how y’all comin’ through on tha 1st verse, too, as if gangsta music easy ta make! Keepin’ it movin’ wit tha 2nd verse and as calm as y’all sound, tha gangsta iz always there, in spirit! You can just feel it! And, Peaches on tha 3rd verse, here, slowly spittin’ some nice rhymes, surprisingly… Lol, what a way to end tha CD: “I got that sticky green stash,” and then, tha CD’s done! Crazy! My Rating: 4.3


Overall: There wasn’t much standout moments on this CD. Literally, err-thang was almost rated tha same and had a consistent, quality street vibe to it…
