Tha Realest – Tha Death Row Dayz

Tha Realest - Tha Death Row DayzOk so I first now got my CD that I was waiting a long time for and when I got it, the CD cover was kind of low budget and I was like, man I paid $30 for this??? But anyway ***** all that, I popped the first CD in the CD Player and I was like daaaaaamn this shit is off the hook!!

CD 1:

1: Intro / Big Game Hunter

A dope ass intro with the sample of the Nightmare on Elm Street theme along with samples from Chronic 2000 and also samples of Tha Realest and other people talking about him, real good introduction to the CD. After that Big Game Hunter starts and this song is just a classic, the flow and beat is hella dope and it really brings back the Death Row feeling from the mid 90’s.

2: High Powered

This song is cool, the beat is kind of simple, but it goes. The track is only 1 min and 39 sec so it’s basically a album filler but it’s a good one.

3: U Can Count on Me

This track is real good, nice west coast vibe with real good lyrics about real homies who you can count on at all times. The track is hella laid back, so if you like to smoke, you just gonna want to light up a blunt to this one.

4: Syde 2 Syde ft. El Dorado

This track is another classic with a laid back west coast beat. Tha Realest talks about back stabbing homies and the life on the streets and he also throws shots at Eminem. El Dorado does a good job on the track too.

5: Drunk Drivin’ In My Glass House ft. Crooked I & Swoop G

Most Realest fans allready heard this track, but now it’s in full CD quality and the track slaps even more then before. Tha Realest, Swoop G & Crooked I do a real good job on this track. The track is just a classic.

6: I Wonder Does God Care? (OG)

This track is real good, the beat is dope Tha Realest is just speaking his mind about the way the world is in his point of view. His Verses are on point and the track goes hard.

7: Summer Time Fling (OG)

Well this track it says OG on the CD cover, but honestly I heard the OG track of this way back and it does not sound anything like this one, but don’t get me wrong, this one is good too. The OG beat on the leaked one is better though. The track is real good for cruisin around in the summer time or just kickin’ it with a fine lookin gurl.

8: Ghetto Prisonerz

The beat on this track is dope, has been used before on a 2pac track, I forget wich one right now…. Tha Realest’s flow is cool on this one too. He’s talking about the street life, snitches and his mission to find freedom. The featured artists on this track did a good job too. Defenitly a good track.

9: Can’t ***** With Us

This track is ok, the beat ain’t nothin special though. Tha Realest’s flow is ok too, he spits some real shit, but his flow get’s off beat a lil bit. This song is more of a album filler. You might like it or you might want to skip it.

10: For Money I Will

This track is just a classic in my oppinion. The beat is another laid back west coast beat and Tha Realest’s flow is real tight on this one too. He’s talking about the hustle and what people can do for money. It’s not a money track like people do now dayz, this track has a real meaning to it.
CLASSIC TRACK

11: Incase I don’t wake up

Another track that most people probably allready heard before, but not in this quality that’s fo sho. This track is a classic nuff said!! 1 of the best tracks Tha Realest has ever done.

12: I Know I’ll Die Soon ft. Nutt-So

Now I thought this CD was only from Tha Realest’s Death Row Days, but nope apparently not. This song was made after his DR Days, but that don’t matter because the track is on the CD anyway. The beat is more of a East Coast Beat and Tha Realest does a real good job on his verse. Nutt-So is ok on his verse and the hook is all right. If the song was mixed properly the track probably would have been better, but because of the poor mixing the track is just another album filler.

13: 99 Bonnie & Clyde ft. VK

This track slaps. The beat is cool and everybody does a good job on the track. It’s more of a track where they showin off they skills on the mic.

14: Hustlin’ ft. San Quinn & Jewell

This right here is a good track to end the first CD with. It’s laid back, but still with a lil faster tempo. Everybody does a good job on the track, and the Jewell gives that sound of perfection on the track. Defenitly a classic.

CD 2:

1: Can’t Mobb Deep

A perfect way to start off the beginning of CD 2. A dope diss track where Tha Realest goes after Mobb Deep, No Limit, Bad Boy and everybody else he had beef with. The track could’ve had better sound quality, but I ain’t trippin on that because it’s good enough and the track is just a classic!

2: Kiss All Night ft. Doobie

A track for the ladies with a nice laid back beat. It has more of a East Coast feeling to it and Tha Realest and Doobie do they thing and it’s cool, but to me the track is just another album filler. I could skip it.

3: Just My Type ft. Sheeba Black & Blaqthoven

Another track for the ladies, but again it’s another album filler. The beat is nothing special, the flow is good, but that’s enough to save the track. The hook is good too, but it still ain’t enough to keep me listening to the track.

4: Played Yourself

yeeeeeah now after 2 album fillers comes a real tight track! The beat is real dope and has a lil bit of that Ruff Ryders feeling to it and the featured artist does his thing too. The only thing that brings the track down is the end of the track, there’s space for at least another verse and probably a hook, but instead all you hear is the beat.

5: M.O.B. ft. CPO Boss Hogg

Another dope track and this one goes real hard. The beat slaps, Tha Realest comes correct on his verse as well as CPO Boss Hogg. It’s DEATH ROW!!!

6: God Bless Your Thugged Out Soul

This track is cool, a nice layed back beat and the track sounds like it was probably done back in the late 90’s. The Verses are good and Tha Realest comes correct and spits some more of that reality shit. The only thing that brings this track down is the sound quality and also the mixing of the track. The track is good, but could be a lot better.

7: It’s better This Way

This track is ok…. Just another album filler in my ears, but hey, somebody else might like it. It’s a track for the ladies, but it’s not a hit.
I don’t know what else to say about it lol…

8: Ride For Me

Finally another classic track! A real good track for the females, where Tha Realest talks about having a girl who will ride for him. The hook is real good and has a female singing. This is what was needed after a few album fillers, a classic!!

9: Waitin’ for Jesus to Come part 2

A nice slow song about homies who passed on and trying to find hope in the streets. Another classic about some real issues that we all have to deal with.

10: We’re Untouchable ft. Amp Pacino

This track is a cool song about a relationship with a down girl who’s down to ride. The verses are real good and the beat is the type of beat you just wanna light up a blunt anc chill out too. A classic track.

11: Would You Be My Girlfriend

The name says it, another track for the ladies… The beat is cool, the verses are on point, but once again the quality was not the best.
The song is good though and that makes it worth listening too…

12. All Night Long ft. Jewell

And once again we have another track for the ladies, but this one is also a track that would be cool at the club. It has a cool clubbish beat to it and Tha Realest and Jewell are just made for doing tracks with eachother!

13: We Won’t Die (ft. Nutt-So)

The beat is simple, the flow’s are all right, but nothing special. I could skip this one, this is mix tape quality, not album quality…. It’s too bad that both songs with Nutt-So had to be this way, because they’re both artists who are capable of making a classic together.

14: Way 2 Real ft. Daz Dillinger

A great way to end the album… Tha Realest and Daz do a good job together, can’t complain at all. The beat is simple and has a closure feeling to it, so when you finsihed with this song you will feel that the CD has come to an end.

Ok, so I paid 30 bucks for this CD and when I got it and saw the artwork for the cover I was a lil bit dissapointed and there was no booklet with track info or anything inside it. When I heard the CD I kind of got over that part though because the CD is good. It has a few flaws but every CD has it’s flaws. Thanks to the classic material this CD slaps and is worth listening to, and I’m defenitly gonna be listening to this CD alot. The album fillers and the poor quality on some of the songs are what bring the CD down a lil bit and because of those tracks it can’t get a 5 star rating….. I give it 4 stars out of 5. Is it worth paying 30 bucks for?? well honestly NO because of the low budget front cover and it not having a booklet or even a back track list inlay. For 30 bucks I would expect to get more and better quality on some of the songs. I don’t regret buying it though because the CD is still unleaked and it does have classic songs in there that are worth the money, but honestly I just gotta say something to FTP: Y’ALL BETTER LOWER YOUR PRICES ON YOUR SHIT OR PUT SOME MORE MONEY INTO MAKING THE CD CASES LOOK PROFESSIONAL BECAUSE I GOT HOMIES WHO RELEASE INDEPENDENT CD’S AND THEY PUT REAL MONEY INTO PRESSING THEM UP WITH REAL BOOKLETS, REAL PRESSED CD’S AND THEY ONLY SELL THEM FOR 10 OR 15 BUCKS AND THEY GOT JUST AS BIG AND EVEN BIGGER NAMES THEN WHAT THA REALEST HAS!
