Straight Bangerz Part 7 Hosted by the RZA

J-Love is really the only big DJ who consistently shows love to the Wu, which is dope because a lot of DJ’s are sleeping on them. This mixtape may sound more “underground” to the 50 fans, but this shit is dope. RZA drops some dope shit on “U Used 2 B.” J-Love produced some tracks on here, which is something a lot of mixtape DJ’s can’t do. DJ 730 is also doing that, which separates these cats from the Kay Slay’s who just play stuff. The Cormega track “Beautiful Mind” is crazy, it’s about time for some new ‘Mega. La the Darkman’s “NY NY is another crazy track. The Ghostface and Jada “Run,” although its been out for a minute but it’s still crazy. Kool G Rap drops “Blackin Out” on here, and if there’s any one doubting that he’s one of the greatest of all time, they can leave this planet on a one-way ticket. Tragedy Khadafi’s tracks on here are dope too, he should be on like Nas is now, but QB’s finest comes through to silence the haters. It’s been a minute since I heard from Blahzay Blahzay, but they’re back with the ODB a.k.a. Dirt McGirt on “Danger 2004.” I like this mixtape a lot because I can hear the artists I don’t get to on Big Mike’s shit or Kay Slay. This has the artists that I’ve always been a fan of, and hearing their new tracks is a lot more important to me right now than hearing the latest D-Block freestyle.

 

J-Love - Straight Bangerz Part 6


J-Love usually comes with dope mixtapes. The "Best of Method Man" was definitely dope, and he continues to support the Meth Man as he leads the mixtape off with the track "Motto." This is a dope track, but how many more tracks is Method Man gonna release before we can get a real album? RZA teams up with Meth for the track "This Thing," which is good track. Finally there's some new Beatnuts out with "Ahh (Punch You in the Face). The beat doesn't sound like a typical Beatnuts beat, it's a lot harder andhas some heavy guitar riffs, but I've been down with the Beatnuts for awhile so I'm just happy to hear some new material. It's a good track, but it's not a crazy Beatnuts track. Masta Ace kills the track "Out the Box," which is produced by Pete Rock and also features the Large Professor and Tony Touch. Nas' "No Love" is a hot track but I swear I'd heard it before. Primo drops a dope beat for Gangstarr's "Ownerz" track. Guru drops a bland verse here, but the beat is sick. The Kanye West and Dirt McGirt combo is crazy. One thing that I absolutely hate is the talking over the tracks, whether it's J-Love or drops from artists. I would much rather hear talking at the end, make one long-ass track instead of talking over tracks. All mixtape DJ's gotta cut that shit out! "Keep the Receipt" is a sick track though, I'm real happy that Dirt McGirt is back, but some of the shit he says makes me scratch his head. There's a Kay-Slay dis courtesy of Cuban Link, where he plays the Drama King for calling himself the "Black Fat Joe." Cuban (who addresses the situation where Fat Joe sliced him) and Tragedy rip the "Hit 'Em Up" beat. They're a good combination. Tragedy's got his new album coming out, and after hearin his verse on this track, I'm definitely lookin forward to his album. Fat Joe spits on "Lonely" which is a pretty dope track. Overall, this has a lot of bangers on it, the Method Man tracks are hot by themselves, but you got the dope Nas tracks, especially the one with Alicia Keys and Rakim. That shit is absolutely crazy. The Wu Tang heads will definitely feel this mixtape, but you don't have to be down with them to feel the hot shit being dropped on this mixtape.

 

DJ J-Love - The Return of the Swarm


J-Love has been one of the best at repping the Wu-Tang to the fullest. His "Best of Method Man" was really dope, and this is another dope mixtape that has the best new tracks of what Shaolin's finest has been up to. I can't wait to hear more new Method Man, because his tracks on here are ridiculous. The "Uh Huh Remix" was done by J-Love, and that's a dope track, but personally I like the original beat. The Dirt McGirt and Raekwon tracks are crazy as well. I've always been a fan of the Wu, and I know I've bought mixtapes simply for the fact that they had a new Ghostface or Raekwon track on it. The GZA remix by J-Love of the lyrically crazy "Fame" is dope. That track is one of the GZA's best, and his track off of "Legend of the Liquid Sword" called "Animal Planet" is on here as well. With minimal talking, and an almost full disc, this is definitely a must for the Wu fans and those who haven't been tuned in to what they've been up to in the past year or so.

DJ J Love - The King Of What I Do (2 1/2 tape rating)

Hold UP Mai Tai (my hood rat from Tokyo)!!! Is that my nigga Cubano? Yeah mutha fuckaz. J Love went and got tha boy Cuban Link. J is holding it down like 10 niggaz in front of the bodega on the 15th, when the headz just got they check right. THE KING OF WHAT I DO is my shit kid. You niggaz know DimeZ ain't no cock rider. I'm not about to tell niggaz to cop some shit that I ain't listening to and I don't give a fuck if the DJ or his manager sent me the shit for FREE. On the cover J Love dubbed himself "The Underground King". All Hail nigga. I loved this shit. Every DJ is a producer today, but few of these niggaz got they own style. The tops in the game to me is that nigga Green Latern and Ron G (sleep mutha fuckaz, he from HARLEM and he produced for Mike Jack). A lot of you niggaz can't even get your girl to listen to your shit. J love remind me of Six July. He didn't steal the nigga style, but the drum patterns are reminiscent. Cop this shit cause if you love HIP HOP, you know about Sadat X (welcome back), Biz and DIAMOND "MUTHA FUCKIN" D (cop his album from back in the day and get a history lesson bitches). Mai, run and get Daddy San some Newports and a Ole E. Too buku niggaz. I holla at you niggaz, my lights just went off. I gotta stop buyin' trees.

 

J-Love - Ghostface : Hidden Darts pt 2 (2 tape rating)

J, the cover for this shit is ordinary, but it beats that last shit you had out. A lot of niggas can't fuck wit Ghost, but the nigga is under rated in the game. Im gone keep this shit short and sweet like when you gettin head from shorty and her moms is bout to come home from work. I know its Iron Man on the mutha fuckin cd, I don't need you to remind me every fuckin song. If you don't know that this is Ghost on the Mutha fucka, then you need to start listening to that rap rock bullshit. Other than that nigga, I been feeling your last two joints, but it is time to move on from the Wu Tang thang. The bottom line is a true mix tape nigga like myself got most of this shit already, if I need to put them together, I can make my own shit and save the chips. I can blaze to this when Im solo and trying to get my haze on, but I heard most of this already. If you love Ghost and you ain't hear it yet, I would cop it!

Straight Bangerz Pt. 7 (hosted by RZA) (2 tape rating)

Oh shit, I gotta give J-Love props. That nigga RZA is harder to find these days then a real bitch wit’ Indian in her. You know how I roll son, let the mutha fuckin’ music play. If I want a play by play, I can listen to Walt Frazier call the game for the Knicks. I’m tired of these Dj niggas telling me who on every song when I got the play list in my hand. You did the right thing though, by putting niggas on who we haven’t heard from in a minute. I’m rocking my I-Pod, sitting on the stoop, blazing a bag to that MOP. Other standout tracks on "Straight Bangerz" were by my peoples Ghostface, Cormega, Lord Finesse, Tragedy, Kool G. Rap and The Infamous Mobb Deep! This is the other side of the game right here. If you gone put some shit out, don’t go get your man off the block to fill up space. Get them niggas that's not on the radio every mutha fuckin’ day, but they nice regardless. Before a nigga hit the streets, J-Love find the nigga who did this cover and Slap The Shit Outta Him for me!!!
