Tracklist

1. Thought It Was a Drought (prod. Metro Boomin & Allen Ritter)

  • DOPE. Future is above average at excellence, and this is not short one bit! Very satisfying opening song. BANGER. “I just fucked your bitch in some Gucci flip flops I just had some bitches and I made ’em lip lock I just took a piss and I seen codeine coming out We got purple Actavis, I thought it was a drought.” [3 out of 5]

2. I Serve the Base (prod. Metro Boomin)

  • Beat heavy. “They should’ve told ya I got that stick with me You the one who duckin’ from a drive by My niggas unemployed sellin’ pot pies I serve the base, I serve the base” [3 out of 5]

3. Where Ya At ft. Drake (prod. Metro Boomin)

  • Featuring Drake. This is a no-brainer. The two make an irresistible on-fire track. Banger and definitely to-be fan favorite. Make it yours today. Just Future asking.. “Where Your Ass was at??” Catchy, upbeat. “Serve a lot of dog food; call you a mutt Where your ass was at dog, when I was on my come-up? The reason I’m here today cause I ain’t never gave up” [5 out of 5]

4. Groupies (prod. Metro Boomin, Southside & Sonny Digital)

  • Real smooth. “Sip on my cup , it’s a movie I pop me a Perc, it’s a movie Smokin’ oh-la-la-la like a Fugee Turn your homie to food, he a Goofy And my lil’ one get head from a groupie

5. Lil One (prod. Metro Boomin & Southside)

  • Now, don’t make me drop a bird on ya I’m gon’ drop a bag on ya I’m gon’ drop that bag on ya Don’t make me drop that bag on ya

6. Stick Talk (prod. Southside)

  • 10 million dollars cash, fuck a friend Started sipping syrup, I’ve been geeked ever since Gotta keep that heat on the seat ever since You know we talk that stick talk, that stick talk

7. Freak Ho (prod. Metro Boomin)

  • Good one. “Pretty girls reppin’ “Pretty Gang” fuckin’ wit the kiddo Type to fuck a hood nigga good, then tell em “ditto” Went from 5 on the indo, 30 rounds in the extendo Fuck a friend though, ain’t pretend though

8. Rotation (prod. Metro Boomin & Southside)

  • Real dope track. Upbeat BANGER. Dirty South Banger. Nice hi-hat kicks and drum bass sub. “I bought all the sodas at the gas station I just put a famous bitch on rotation I just put that famous bitch on rotation I just put lil shawty out on probation” [5 out of 5]

9. Slave Master (prod. Metro Boomin & Southside)

Personal favorite production and overall most energetic track. Catchy and definitely gets stuck in your head after as little as just a few plays. “Jump out a new whip, nigga, like I’m a slave master I pour up two zips nigga I’m feelin’ way better I’m feelin’ way better, I’m feelin’ way better” [5 out of 5]

10. Blow a Bag (prod. Metro Boomin, Southside & Sonny Digital)

  • Released single, mid-temp BANGER. Able to relate, down to earth and has incredible depth to the track and verses. Repetitive hook, good hook. “I ran it up with the same niggas Get that money and stay with the same niggas I know that money can change niggas They don’t look at you like you the same nigga” [4 out of 5]

11. Colossal (prod. Zaytoven)

  • Typical Zaytoven synth-keyboard bounce. (Little substance to some for those who don’t understand it) – but deep hood Street Banger to the real fans of Future. The definition of colossal is “extremely large or great,” to which Future is saying that his stacks of money are getting colossal, i.e. he’s earning so much money. “I’m hungry, I admit it, I swear I’m conditioned I served and I hustled on any conditions Fuck your permission, I’ll get to them digits Come to your town and I get and split it” [5 out of 5]

12. Rich $ex (prod. Metro Boomin, Frank Dukes & Southside)

  • Mid tempo, catchier than ever. Nice relaxing soothing sounds. I dig it. R&B/swagger style, definitely looking for a feature – but doesn’t need one as Future keeps attention throughout this entertaining track, Hook is dope! “Never made love to a misfit You never made love to a misfit Come and kick a deal on some rich shit I’ma keep it pimpin’ on some rich shit” [5 out of 5]

13. Blood on the Money (prod. Metro Boomin, Cassius Jay & Zaytoven)

  • GREAT TRACK. WOW!!! Another real good one. This is definitely a work of art.. just excelling right here! Really really loving this one. On repeat over – and over.. “She put me off and it was ugly I made a million dollars, say she love me The way she did me, it destroyed me I kept it real with lil’ shorty” [5 out of 5]

Deluxe version bonus tracks:

14. Trap Niggas (prod. Southside)

  • If you’re anybody, then you know you NEED this song. Gotta get the Deluxe version for it. Definitely worth it. “When you wake up before you brush your teeth You grab your strap, nigga Only time you get down on your knees Shooting craps, nigga Fuck what you heard, God blessin’ all the trap niggas” [5 out of 5]

15. The Percocet & Stripper Joint (prod. Southside)

  • Real talk. Percocet is a painkiller which includes the combination of oxycodone and paracetamol — in this track, Future highlights the extent of his drug use — even stretching to over the counter painkillers — while he’s in a strip club. “I get mad zooted, I got this bad thing I recruited My passion is a movie, I say fuck it ‘cause that’s ruder I stay on Miley Cyrus, every where I go I’m screwed up

16. Real Sisters (prod. Zaytoven)

  • Up tempo keyboard synth friendly track. Pretty addictive. Zaytoven bringing the heat!! “Say you getting throwed, I’m tryna pour up with you Oh, that’s your best friend? I’m tryna fuck her with you First met the bitch, they said they real sisters I don’t give a fuck if they was real sisters” [4 out of 5]

17. Kno the Meaning (prod. Southside)

  • This one is for those that ‘Kno the Meaning.’ Real stuff “I’m fresh off the plane on them Zaytiggy’s I endured so much pain, ain’t got Esco with me Ain’t got nobody smoke one or pour with me Niggas rocked the lean, man, when I was OT” [5 out of 5]

18. Fuck Up Some Commas (prod. DJ Spinz & Southside)

  • Lead single, and definitely for a good reason. Get yourself to Fuck Up Some Commas, already. What Are You Waiting For? BANGER Fake nigga lie to a real nigga Now that’s just some shit that you don’t do I’mma stay real for my real niggas Now that’s just some shit that I’m gon’ do” [5 out of 5]

All around – HIT ALBUM, and a fan favorite. All Future (all the time), and with only one Feature track (Drake), he needs no others – in which he holds his own ground alone – strong.

If you don’t know it by now, you should get to know it a bit better. Fuck Up Some Commas and get yourself a listen or two, and a copy or two of Future’s DS2 right NOW.

Sicknan” is a street single produced by Zaytoven from southern rapper Diamond‘s mixtape P.M.S. (Pardon My Swag).

The video was directed by Cordaryll Ward. Diamond’s upcoming first studio album is currently titled The Black Barbie. Diamond’s P.M.S. mixtape was earlier titled Bitch Music Vol. 3: Diamonds Are Forever.

Please excuse the beginning of the video, the real good stuff starts after her 25 second “shoutouts”. Can’t wait for Diamond to drop, she’s definitely my favorite in the game. Oh, and for those who don’t already know, Diamond was previously a part of the rap group Crime Mob.

Gorilla Zoe “Don’t Feed Da Animals” – Album Review

filedontfeedtheanimals

Available now on iTunes!

Don’t Feed Da Animals is the second studio album by rapper Gorilla Zoe. It features the Drumma Boy produced first single “Lost”, and Zaytoven produced second single “What It Is” and third single “Echo”. It features guest appearances by Rick Ross, OJ Da Juiceman and Gucci Mane and features productions by Drumma Boy and Zaytoven as well as others. Originally a member of Boyz N Da Hood his singles “Hood Nigga” and being featured on “Coffee Shop” and “Bottle Poppin” is Gorilla Zoe’s second studio album going to be bigger and badder than his first album Welcome to the Zoo?

The banger of an opening Untamed Gorilla is produced by Kane Beatz is a strong track on Zoe’s part, it features JC on the hook. Bass banger nice deliverance and a really catchy track overall.

Dope Boy is a very auto-tuned track, produced by Don Vito. It’s an alright track once you get the feel for it and when you can manage the autotunee. “We be in the hood all the bitches in the hood love a dope boy everybody loves a Dope boy… a dope boy..”

I’m Dumb a bass banger produced by FATBOI is a really nice track to bang in your car. Loud bass and alright deliverance makes this a nice track to repeat over and over in your car. Leaked awhile ago, so I might just be biased to it and might have already overplayed it.

Lost originally featured Lil’ Wayne on mixtapes, later removed for release as the first single and is produced by Drumma Boy. Great first single which features autotune on Zoe’s part and a good banger. “I’m lost on a road…Don’t know which way to go.. I’m losing my mind.. Losing control of the wheel.. And I’m swerving On and off the road..”

Check out Gorilla Zoe & Lil’ Wayne performing “Lost” Live:

Shit On Em is a track produced by Zaytoven. It possibly has too many “Shit” references, but besides that umm.. yeah Gorilla Zoe autotune. Nothing out of the ordinary but I guess if you want to sing the chorus.. feel free. It’s extremely catchy and even though I would rather it be about something else.. it’s a very catchy and nice banger for your car.“I doo doo, I boo boo, I poo poo.. I shit on em you shit on em? I shit on em”

Hood Clapalthough produced by new name Dee Jay Dana, it can possibly be compared to Hurricane Chris’ “Hand Clap” but mixed with a bit of Hood Nigga and some Zoe style together in a track. “If you hood and you know it, clap your hands..”

gorilla-zoe-what_it_is_single_cover_2009

What It Is is the second single from the album, it was produced by Zaytoven and features rappers Rick Ross & Kollosus. It’s an above average rap track by Zaytoven with horns, some bass and some keyboards. Typical track and above average, possibly a classic hood anthem if it gets enough support. “We took the fours off the chevy and we sat it those sixes (sixes) lipstick on them rims got them rims blowin kisses (kisses)…. they know what it is… yall know what it is… he know what is is… she know what it is”

Helluvalife is produced by Zaytoven, features Gucci Mane and OJ Da Juiceman. You might not think the track is a typical Gucci Mane or OJ Da Juiceman track, however they keep they’re style and it’s an average track. Could probably be a better overall track. “I’m living one Helluvalife.. one of those nights in my Helluvalife..”

I Got It features Big Block and is a produced by Drumma Boy and is a track that particularly stood out to me. Some autotune, although not as bad as some tracks good verses including Zoe with autoune. “It ain’t trickin if you got it, and I got it .. so bad I just wanna take her shoppin. I got it.. you got it I want it, so bad I wanna see you in the mornin – so bad I wanna see you when you moanin you can have whateve you been wantin…”

Echo is the third single from the album and produced by Drumma Boy is Zoe’s attempt at R&B auto-tune artist again, and this time it could possibly go very mainstream radio. Very nice production and nice part by Zoe. “Echo.. ech-ech-echo… And I’m gone and you’re all alone.. can’t you hear the… Echo.. ech-ech-echo… with no one near you – there’s no one to hear you”

Watch Me is a track produced by Drumma Boy, it features Yung Chris. Although produced by Drumma Boy and I typically like his tracks, I don’t think I really like this one too much, probably the weakest song on Zoe’s part, nice track on Drumma Boy’s part.

It would be nice to see Gorilla Zoe try something new besides his R&B autotune singing, but overall – it’s a solid release. It would be nice to see Zoe use some new lines, but I guess when you talk about the same thing the typical lines come up more than once. Basic hood talk, nothing really new besides some autotune and some hot beats. If you’re not looking for lyrical hiphop you shouldn’t be listening to Gorilla Zoe (but you should already know that’s not Zoe), then you’re in for some nice ear candy and some bass bangers to keep your cars happy for awhile.

Outstanding Tracks

  • “Untamed Gorilla” featuring JC
  • “Lost”
  • “What It Is” featuring Rick Ross & Kollosus
  • “Hood Clap”
  • “Shit On Em”
  • “I Got It” featuring Big Block
