Review #1,540: Dirty Red & Lil' Bay "Blood In, Blood Out"

Reviewed on 9.25.2016 (Review #1,540)


Anotha review, here, and it’s in tha 8:00 AM hour! We got Dirty Red & Lil’ Bay up next, with their 1995 release, Blood In, Blood Out, released on FrayserClick Records & produced by DJ Sound! Start Time: 8:10 AM | End Time: 8:43 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!

Tha 3rd verse sounds pretty sick; nice, fast rappin’ wit a gutta vibe, here! Nice, dark beat ta back up y’all on tha track! It literally reminds me of Baton Rouge rappin’ of today’s world with an old school beat! Good shit! My Rating: 4.6

09. “Funky Dope Shit”
>>> Nice lil’ beginning, here… I’m diggin’ tha eerie beat and how tha hook’s scratchin’ and all dat. Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds like a regularly-rapped undaground verse, here… Tha hook sounds nice; feelin’ how it’s all about dat “funky dope shit!” I’d have ta say, “Funky,” but at tha same time, “Eerie dope shit,” too! Tha 2nd verse’s soundin’ good, too; can’t complain… My Rating: 4.4


10. “Drop To Yo Knees”
>>> Beat’s not bad, here; still has tha undaground vibe fa it, despite it bein’ a lil’ plain… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it sounds aight; can’t complain about tha undaground vibe… Diggin’ tha hook, here, even tho it simply just tha title repeatin’… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s pretty serious wit tha voice/content! Definitely delivered nicely!! And, for tha ending, we have a nicely-distorted voice wit dat street content! I just think of a clown’s face or somethin’ wit when y’all say, “Drop to yo kneeeeeeeeeees!!,” lol! My Rating: 4.3


11. Dirty Red & Bay Shot Out
A long one! It has 5:56 on tha length? Long shout outs? >>> Beat’s nice; voices are nice, here… Lots of shout outs! My Rating: N/A


Overall: Great job with this release! Bloody and dirty, tha way undaground rap should be! Eerie, distorted, undaground, quality, pure, excellent, gangsta, gutta, grimy, street, ya know?! Everythang a gangsta need in they life!! Keep up tha great work; hope y’all still around!!
