CJ Gatz's "POV" review

CJ Gatz comes in with another mixtape sure to stimulate your swag senses and have you tuned into his swag. He really has a specialty to bring you into his realm and have you buzzing throughout the entire piece. Not often I run across artist who keep the flame going strong like him and you will know what I mean after you listen to Track 03- "My City" ft. DJ & MJ Damage; prod. by Benny Liang.

I appreciate CJ for asking me to listen to this because it was a pure joy from beginning to end. I remember listening to his last mixtape "Omega" and it left a strong impression on me. I remember how smooth and sophisticated swag it sounded. He doesn't put on an act like he is some big time and keeps it real. Please believe it's really good and I will always be willing to give pure talented artist their credit. He sure does know he is spitting some real swag on Track 10- "Hot N Cold" prod. by Beatspear.

Also, I like how CJ has an extremely diverse amount of producers and features. It is pretty whack when I listen to a mixtape and the artist didn't work with anybody. Alot of big names wont work with other artist because they got an ego, or they charging them all kinds of money. Nothing wrong with compensation someone for they time, but when it comes to music all you doing is rhyme. Anybody can do it, but the question is can you shine? It's nothing to the real swaggers because we do it all the time. All you gotta do is stay on your grind, like on Track 07- "Tunnel Vision" ft. Sean Kash; prod. by Bentley Hendrixx.

I'm back on my grind writing these reviews because I got fired from my job and I have nothing but time on my hand. Plus I'm working on other projects including my own mixtape. It would be a pleasure to work with CJ Gatz someday on da swag track. I'm willing to work with anybody who wants to swag. Until then I will continue to find artist like him to write about and promote. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Gucci Mane & PeeWay LongWay's "The White Album" review

Gucci may be locked up but that doesn't stop him from continuing to feed the streets with work. This time he teams up with PeeWay LongWay and makes magic on da tracks. MPA is a legit crew that has so many rap gods its ridiculous. They always ready to have you safe swaggin like on Track 05-"Dangerous Click" ft. Jose Guapo. 

Alot of people I know have no clue who PeeWee LongWay is. Me being a blogger and a substantial fan of Migos, I have liked PeeWay from the first time I heard "Dirty Sticks". It's great that he came out with a mixtape with Gucci to help raise his profile. He is extremely talented with his walloping vast rap vocabulary and dynamic high-powered zippy rhyme delivery. He gives you something to think about on Track 07-"In The Way" ft MPA Duke. 

Everybody knows what you get when you listen to Gucci, drug dealing and balling. When it comes to LongWay, I personally don't feel that is his strong point. After listening to him for some time now I feel he is better when he expresses his sincere swag more. He is more poetic than someone would think, but because he continues on with the thug persona it's difficult for a new listener to grasp. It's all swag though because he is a fairly new and I'm sure he will find his swag eventually, until then enjoy releases like Track 3-"Call Yo Plig" ft OGD.

I will be on the lookout for more releases from the MPA band camp because they really know how to swag. Gucci will be out of prison one day but I do have its silly and nonsensical how he is not able to stay free. He getting older and I know he tired of being behind bars. At what point does he grow up and stick to the business? Its no more "Free Gucci" from me, now its "Stop Getting Locked Up Gucci", but I will still support. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Corner Boy P & Mary Gold's "Designer Drugs" review

This was a mixtpae that had me swaggin from the moment I peeped the cover art. Jets are always swaggin at the top of their game and you should expect nothing less. They continue on their exquisitely proficient legacy with champion tracks like Track 3 "Remember Me" prod. by Samir Urbina.

I don't really know much about Cornor Boy P or Mary Gold. I first heard Mary on Currey$y's last mixtape "The Drive In Theater" on the "El Camino" track. I have seen Corner Boy's features throughout the years. I really like the comforting sedative like beats and how both artist gel on both tracks. Also I have never heard of the producer Samir Urbina, but I do enjoy how this work was crafted. New Orleans niggs really know how to swag like on Track 4- "Roll Up" prod. by Samir Urbina.

I don't mean to turn this review into a Spitta focus, but he is coming to Chicago to do a show this Thursday night at the Metro. Do I have a ticket? Hell yeah. I hope his opening acts include Corner Boy and Mary because it would be nice to see them perform on stage.

To all my readers I apologize for my recent inactivity. My energies have been focused on other projects, including recording my own mixtape. I'm not gonna rush anything and everything will swag in due time. Also I deactivated my twitter page for the time being. Stay offline for a whiles and just blog until I'm ready to release everything so be on the lookout. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.
