1. Light Up - Freestyle (Intro) | 3:23 | 3 (Produced by Tone Mason)
Would’ve just been better if Drama just oversaturated everything else.
2. Paypa Cuts (Featuring Rick Ross & Dj Khaled) | 4:35 | 3
Rick Ross just killed Paypa, and the track.
3. Ha Ha (Slow Down) - Freestyle | 2:41 | 2.5 - 2.75 (Produced by Scoop Deville)
4. Paypa | 3:31 | 2.5 - 2.75
He’s really pushing the gimmick to it’s limits. The sample goes on for too long at the end.
5. Inkredible - Freestyle | 2:36 | 3 - 3.25 (Produced by Mr. Inkredible)
Rating is mostly because of the production, and the fact I haven’t listened to the original.
6. Giant | 3:13 | 2.5 - 2.75
7. I Am Bitches (Featuring The Game & Jim Jones) | 5:12 | 3.5 (Produced by Embryo)
Should thank Grandad “Bitches” Freeman for this.
8. La Cosa Nostra (Featuring Hayes) | 4:05 | 2.25 - 2.5
I like when Hayes starts out with talking about being a lawyer, but that’s it.
9. Frankenstein (Featuring The Menace & X.O of Black Wall Street) | 4:32 | 2.25 - 2.5
10. Billionaire | 4:13 | 2.25 - 2.5
I’m pretty sure even millionaires, or the general population don’t listen to this kind of music.
11. Kobe (Featuring Los) | 3:49 | 3 - 3.25 (Produced by Los)
Los might be the only one that actively takes influence from Soulja Boy. Hook isn’t as infectious as Pretty Boy Swag though.
12. Satellite | 3:24 | 2.25 - 2.5
13. I’m Cool | 3:21 | 2.5 - 2.75
14. Dope Boy (Featuring Ace Casino) | 4:16 | 2.25 - 2.5
15. Hey Joe (Featuring Seefor & Young B) | 3:37 | 2.5 - 2.75
Points for trying.
16. Unthinkable - Remix | 2:42 | 3 (Produced by 40)
17. The Corner | 4:10 | 2.5
18. Not Afraid - Freestyle (Outro) | 3:33 | 3 (Produced by Boi-1da)
Could’ve not come any more original for an outro.
Overall Rating: 47.75 - 50.75 | 2.7 / 5 | 53 - 56% | Average; BE WARNED.
It’s certainly bad when an mixalbum comes out today and you have a review put up as quick.
Some rappers, like Paypa get chances from me (and anyone really) because of the singles that they put out, which in this case was, I Am Bitches. A simple song really, just consisting of simple organ stabs and highhat sixteenths, it was enough for me to invest a little interest in Paypa, mostly because someone told me that he was putting out a mixtape.
Of course, this is what we have here. Typical punchline laden rapper, rapping over (Very) uninspired production, dabbling in a couple of mainstream / established tracks, just to draw in some people in case the production doesn’t.
I think Paypa works best when he’s trying to not really convey a message (which is mostly in the middle - end of the mixalbum), but really when he’s just trying to do his usual independent thing. Tracks like Inkredible (I like the potatoes line), I Am Bitches or even Kobe, are decent enough tracks, because Paypa isn’t really trying to say something important, he’s just trying to say something.
Yet, there are so many unnumerable rappers that do that already, so why try this? Maybe if you’re a Miami citizen, and want to support your fellow brother, but really, you don’t gotta care about this.
