Don Trip's "Randy Savage" review

The reason I choose to listen to this mixtape because I liked the title & it only had 10 tracks. I was like Hell Naw someone named a mixtape after a WWE wrestler. I was just hoping dat da shit didn't suck total ass & I was gon swag. SWAG SWAG!!! I don't know the significance that The Macho Man has with Don but he sure did swag on da mixtape with his continuous flow. He was really swaggin on Track 07- "Cream Of The Crop" prod. by Street Symphony, which I thought should have been the intro.

Alright I'm ashamed to say that I had never previously heard of Don Trip before. Its totally my fault because I did my research after I finished listening to the mixape & I'm ashamed of my self. He is a well respected artist in the game & has a supple library of mixtapes to swag to. Coming from Memphis he knows how to go ham on Track 02- "I'm Still In The Trap" ft Juicy J prod. by The Mekanics. 

I have realized that I have veered away from the original reason I started this blog. I started it to give small named rappers some extra publicity. When I clicked on this mixtape I saw he now has about 75k downloads & I was like who is dis. Then I did some research & found out Don is from the Memphis area & has done plenty features with big names artist from that city. In an article I read form the Memphis Flyer, Don said "I've done records with Gotti, Ball & MJG, and Three 6". The article also stated that he signed to Interscope. This is a major achievement. Memphis is relatively close to Chicago & I would have thought I heard of him before but no swag. 

I do have to be honest because I did have trouble grasping to his flow. He is not anywhere near garbage its just I was more so focused on the beats. I was tweeting as I was listening & forgot I was even, doing a review at one point in time. I went to Youtube & watched some of his older videos & it appears to me that he was more hungry with tracks like "Letters To My Son" because they ment something. Most of the tracks on this mixtape have no real message as if he didn't care.  I'm not alone in this opinion because I went to the comments on Datpiff & Headegg said " Shit has some dope tracks but a lot of the tape is kinda samey-samey." I'm sure his previous mixtapes are super swaggin & I eventually I will listen to them on da swag swag. 

I will put the link to the Memphis Flyer article below. I found it to be very knowledgeable about Don Trip. He doesn't have a Wikipedia page & that's odd because most signed artist have one. Nevertheless he still swaggin. I also read that he had videos on Youtube for almost a year & nobody watched. I have over 400 videos on my Youtube page YOUTUBE.COM/FWILLIS911 but I have low views as well I used to think Youtube blocked my views but they don't & folk just don't watch. O'Well I do have this blog & people do read & I ask my readers for donations because I need their money. Anything that is given is greatly appreciated. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.
