Review #1,577: Ralph Geeba "Versatility"

Reviewed on 10.24.2016 (Review #1,577)

Here’s a suggested CD that my boy, B-Don, told me to check out: Ralph Geeba Versatility, which was released last year on Lingo La’Familia & was produced by DJ_44. It’s only 35 minutes long, so lemme see what we workin’ with, here… Start Time: 10:21 PM | End Time: 10:58 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!

© 2016 CD Review (Review #1,577) reviewed on 10.24.2016 by FrankieThaLuckyDog.

01. “Intro”
>>> I’ono, but off those first few seconds of rappin’, I’m like thinkin’, next Kevin Gates from tha undaground? I’ono, but I had a real great feelin’ off tha beginning, here… As far as how this sounds, it sounds interesting and decent… Definitely diggin’ tha flow and tha beat not too bad… With that bein’ said, interesting 1st verse and tha hook goes, too… Seems like some sick rhymes on tha 2nd verse, here; fast, consistent and a lot ta deliver! My Rating: 4.4

02. “True Story”
>>> Sounds nice with this beat and, once again, I’m gettin’ a great throwback feelin’ of tha Kevin Gates from tha undaground while hearin’ this 1st verse! Gangsta shit at its finest! When I seen tha front cover, I was thinkin’ this was some1 who ain’t have original production or just rapped random shit. However, this quality shit! Only one verse, here? Definitely nice! Feelin’ tha acapella shit toward tha end! My Rating: 4.3

03. “Geeba Fire”
I have ta say, I like that you have “Geeb” in your name! Like, that’s what I hit when I get supa high! Tha “geeb,” a.k.a. tha gravity bong!! >>> I’m definitely diggin’ this production, includin’ tha intro! Kinda sound funny on tha hook wit tha voice, but I can get through this, surprisingly, fa a newbie! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I’m definitely feelin’ all tha rhymes you bringin’, here! Flow’s definitely tight and you got this rap shit on lock! Street quality at its finest! Tha 2nd verse’s undeniable, too! Just luv how you consistently drop all these rhymes with different flows! My Rating: 4.2

04. “Geeba Spit”
>>> Beat’s nice, here, and you holdin’ this shit down, with only one verse! Luv how consistent you are around tha 1:06 mark with err-body/err-thang “rollin’ up!” My Rating: 4.2

05. “Freestyle 1”
>>> Not a DJ_44 beat? You say, “Lil’ Ken?” If so, surprising for a freestyle! I don’t recognize tha beat, so this prolly original fa me… Hearin’ tha verse and it sounds like you’re amped up; definitely feelin’ it! Luv tha part at :52 with tha hot, “Spit it and hit it and lick it…,” or whateva; you know what you’re doin’!! I like how you say, “Bitch, I buy racks; I’ont buy shoes;” dope! My Rating: 4.0

½time: Definitely nice; a 4.2-rated CD, so far! I wouldn’t’ve expected this ta be so tight fa an unknown artist! Luvin’ your flow, lyrics, rhymes & production; perfect combination, where others fail on one of ‘em!

06. “No Mind” (Peezy feat. Ralph Geeba & Joka)
>>> Diggin’ this production and tha hook’s nice! Quality Baton Rouge music at its finest! Gotta luv my undaground!! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice! Tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad; gotta not have a “mind!” This joint makes me anticipated ta try these CBD edibles I bought tha other day. I heard they don’t get you high but they help with anxiety, which I have bad with my job? A body high? I’ono, but I gon find out 2morrow! We’ll see where my “mind” at, lol! Hearin’ tha 3rd verse and it sounds much calmer than tha previous verses… Ehh, I’ono, nothin’ special, but it’s not bad… It sometimes sounds a lil’ off-beat, too… My Rating: 4.2

07. “Runnin’ Jumpin’ Fences” feat. Peezy
Lookin’ at this title, I’m anticipatin’ this! >>> Sounds like a true, Baton Rouge-soundin’ gangsta anthem, here! Can’t wait ta hear! You sound kinda quiet on tha vocals, here, but tha hook’s pretty nice! Gotta luv “jumpin’” dem “fences!” I was just in an abandoned city, earlier today…
Shit was nice! Diggin’ how you chantin’ err-body ta “jigg” on tha 1st verse; dope shit! You got this shit on-n-poppin’! Hope you continue ta bring tha heat wit this rap shit at all times! Tha 2nd verse sounds like a feature, almost, but I guess it’s you… “Peezy”? Iz it him again? Ehh, I’ll put him on it! Shit sounds nice! And, a lil’ talkin’ toward tha end; nice… My Rating: 4.3

08. “Want Me Dead”
>>> Definitely diggin’ tha true Baton Rouge-soundin’ beat, here! Shit sounds nice ta hear! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and tha Baton Rouge beat’s distortin’ in tha beginning, while you’re deliverin’ some nice rhymes… Diggin’ tha line, “Many missiles…,” around tha 1:00 mark; dumb shit! Tha hook sounds decent; flows nicely with tha track… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it starts with, “Bitch, I’ll flush you, like a toilet;” oh, I know this gon continue ta be good!! Rhymes are undeniable!! “Bars, tabs & watsons!!” Watson bein’ tha best ta name, especially since it’s tha last name of one of my favorite dudes, Doe-Doe! Excellent verse; can’t deny what you bringin’!! My Rating: 4.4

09. “Freestyle 2”
>>> Beat sounds nice with this Baton Rouge-soundin’ style! Tha rhymin’ iz undeniable!! Consistent, constant rhymin’ at its finest!! Wish I would’ve known about this last year! I prolly would’ve added one of these tracks to my playlist! It’s all good ‘cause at least I’m gettin’ ta hear it! I’m not tha biggest fan of makin’ a freestyle my top-rated song on tha CD, but, statistically, that’s what it might be! My Rating: 4.5

10. “Right Now”
>>> Beat’s off to a slow start; let’s see how your rhymes gon turn out ta be… Distorted beat during tha beginning wit some rap-singin’? Hook’s ehh; I hope tha rhymes are good… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s decent… I kinda wanna hear tha throwback Gates flow… Not too much interest comin’ outta tha 1st verse fa me, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s betta, even tho I ain’t fuckin’ wit some of these lyrics… Why does your producer have ta have random beat tag sentences throughout your tracks? Once iz enough—well, zero times iz tha best! Oh, God, it even was distorted at tha very end, too! My Rating: 3.4

11. “Weed”
>>> Slow sound, here, with a nice lil’ high hook, just repeatin’, “Weed,” lol… Tha 1st verse ain’t too bad with what you spittin’, here… I’m surprised that I like tha hook tha best, as it just repeats, “Weed,” while singin’, lol. Tha 2nd verse soundin’ pretty nice, here, as far as what “weed” does to you. Well, “weed” fa me helps with my lack of socializing from my Asperger’s Syndrome of autism. Also, I embrace things more! Imagine if I would’ve reviewed this while high? And, a distorted beat, at times, ta end this off… My Rating: 3.9

Overall: This CD caught me by surprise with how interesting it was… I mainly felt your consistent rhymes but I dug how you reminded me of when Kevin Gates started and how he sounded. Great job wit how you viciously delivered some of this shit and your producer, DJ_44, provided some excellent production! Hope you continue ta have a following and do it big! Big in tha undaground, that iz! Can’t have you sell out and be a sellout like Gates iz! There’s no excitement when people don’t answer you, no more! ………………………………Mista Cain, Kevin Gates, perfect examples! Pointless, now, so when I review their shit, it really just goes in one ear and out tha other. It’ll be good music but I won’t make it important like y’all!
