DJ Drama & Block Ent – Welcome To My Block

centered image

Block Ent is in the place to be. Fuck what ya heard, Rapmullet is that place. If your up on mixtapes at all you know Drama got releases coming for days. Aphilliates is crazy this year, Gangsta Grillz is that brand that makes some of you other DJs mad and the rest of you other DJs work harder. If you’re not familiar with Young Joc you will be after this mixtape. Shit, if you’re not familiar with Block you will be after the first track, he talks for six minutes and change; maybe one of the few cats that talk the talk and walk the walk.

Ain’t no denying it, “A Couple Grand” is a beast of a song. The marriage between Joc’s slow flow and that beat is catchy as hell. Def a classic mixtape track. Jody Breeze is a little slept on in my opinion. The hook for “24 Hours” is weak but the rhyme is all bravado. “Supastar” is that concrete shit, Jim Jones slides right in and sounds like he from the east side of Atl. The hardest track on the whole CD is “Shoulder Squeeze” hands down. Nothing like some down south murder music. I’ve heard that Rick Ross freestyle somewhere before, lol. The sleeper track of the CD got to be Renegade. He called himself the ” ’06 Ike Turner.” Shit had me rolling.

On the real this CD didn’t pop off like I thought it was gonna. Don’t get me wrong the music is tight but nothing that really makes you wanna lick a shot off in the air. It’s just a teaser, they holding all the good shit for the albums and you know what….that’s a good move. This CD gonna do promo numbers regardless but its not a Gangsta Grillz classic at all. Block Ent people, be checking for that. Now I’m bout to go put “A Couple Grand” on rewind and roll up a little something to get me through the rest of my day.
