@Fattrel - Nightmare on E Street Mixtape REVIEW!



With all the hype on twitter and the local papers covering Fat Trel's new tape "Nightmare on E Street" i was jive excited to listen to this project. I NEVER review projects on my site (because artist especially younger artist can't take feedback on their music) but a review of this project I feel is needed for several reasons. The main reason is to give some critical feedback on a artist that many feel is the "NEXT" big artist from the DC, MD & VA area. When Trel name is brought up at least to the people i talk to they always say "You know what you getting, that typical Trel rap" and i say to myself "should i accept that typical Trel Rap"? And the answer is NO! I feel it is more of my duty to give more insightful criticism to the artist that are from my area because anybody will tell you i believe in my community 110%.


I was proud of a few things. I was proud of the attention Trel got for this project, not only from publications but from other notable artist such as Big Krit, Joel Ortiz, Red Cafe just to name a few. I was also proud that it was released in an organized way on LiveMixtape.com and lastly i was proud that people were really anticipating this tape. I listened to this tape a total of 6 times since its release hoping i would hear something new and fresh every time and unfortunately i didn't. People often say "Trel rap for the youngins" and that is true but no matter if your 33 (Like me) or 18 the progression of a artist content is a must in music today and you should see that from project to project. One thing this tape did for me is it reconfirmed that Trel needs some experienced music people around him FAST. With a tape of this hype the quality should be TOP NOTCH! Fat Trel needs to be "produced"!!!!


Most Mixtapes released by artist that are buzzing ( ie..2 chainz ) have at least 2-3 singles on the tape that the radio is playing right now and this Nightmare on E Street has NONE. Maybe that wasn't Trel's goal?!?!?!?! Just like any project it had it dark spots and bright spots, but for a artist that is in his early 20's I'm excited to see what he puts out in the future.


With that being said i broke it down track by track.



1. Intro- Is nothing more than a "Intro"


2. Bye The Way-The beat is solid and lyrics are solid. Predictable but solid.


3. White Cocaine- This record is off. Off for multiple reasons and the first reason is the quality of the record. The mix on the beat was horrible. the vocals were clean but blended with the beat made for a weak track. You can tell it was a 2 track recording. The hype of the tape i expected and the "Fans" need BETTER quality.


4. Geetchie- Lex Lugar on the beat is an advantage but the same lyrical content. Also, this record sound like a 2 track as well because it doesn't have that usual Lex Lugar 808 knock.


5. Deep in the game- When i initially saw Harry Fraud's name on the credit i was jive excited (Thinking of French Montana's "Shot Caller"). Then I listened to this record and something was slightly off. I like the Ross hook and Trel flow jived saved the record but something is off with the production and song as a whole.


6. Running- This record gave me a little more insight into Trel's world. Especially the "Teacher see me now" line and the "Momma proud" line. the beat is your typical 808 sonics.


7. Bros- They repping Northeast 100% (I'm from Benning and Clay Street) on the record from the hook to the features. trel gave some insight on how this rap stuff started for him and his crew the "Slutty Boys". But.....the features were rapping about something completely different. If it was someone there to really help produce this record maybe this record could've really been focused on how the whole Slutty movement started.


8. Paper bag Magic- More Drug talk!


9. Swishers and Liquor- This Krit produced record had some emotion beat wise. The bassline was sick!!! Trel spits the same content tho. I think if most artist had a Krit track they would try and create the BIGGEST record they could. If this record had a focus it couldve been more than what it was.


10. Freak It- The record is focused on a girl and/or girls. A refreshing sound especially with the girl signing on the hook. It ended kind of fast and awkward. If the project was mixed and mastered that would've been corrected.


11. On Top of Your Girl- I hear what he was attempting to do with this record and I definitly applaud the effort. It was a little too much happening on the hook in my opinion. The beat sounded slightly unfinished but i love the melody of the record.


12. Benning Rd- Another record showcasing Northeast D.C. and its infamous Benning Rd. Records like this give me more insight into Trel's life. he mentioned his daughter and his ambition to get out of the hood.


13- Nothin- I like the emotion of this record for 2 reasons. the beat is jamming and Trel's timing is on point with his delivery. I think we all love Trel when he's in pocket with that double time flow. just like the Freak It track, this record ends awkwardly . It's the little things like this that make me suggest Trel get some SERIOUS music and engineer people around him FAST!


14- Time of Your Life- This record with Tabi was needed and good to hear. The drum cadence was a good break from the typical 808 sound. I appreciate this record especially among the other records on the mixtape. The concept was focused and the mission was accomplished and that was to tell us about the time of our lives. Good Job Fellas!!!!


15. Rollin- Trel's flow, melody and delivery is on point on this record.


16. Find My Way- The best record on the mixtape in my opinion. Musically this record is on point. the Raheem feature added to it as well. Trel talks about homies he lost and that always paints a vivid picture when you talking about the DC, MD & VA communities. The record was too short.


17. Murder- From the sound of the beat and how Trel started off the record i got excited because i thought he was going to tell a story but somewhere around the second verse i got lost. The song quickly goes back into Trel's usual content. But at the end of the record Trel is basically telling the listeners how he murdered the P****!


18. Nightmares- One of the best arranged, mixed and musical records on the tape. the hook is polished and the record had focus. I heard a lot of potential in Trel on this recording in terms of vocal emotion and delivery. Pretty good record and it kept my attention.


19. Up In Here- Red Cafe........He hit the Ace Hood "Hustle Hard" flow but whatever. The "We Up In Here" hook was just pure lazy and uninspiring. Trel delivers on this joint. They could've left this off but a Red Cafe feature is a Red Cafe feature.


20. Devil We Like- I actually skipped this record because the mix was horrible.


21. This record had my face frowned up!!! I liked the back and forth flow between Trel and Chris Bo. Back and Forth street talk is cool with me all day!

RANSOM RAZINA entitled THA DIABETIC


http://soundcloud.com/ransomrazina/tha-diabetic

STORY BEHIND THE MUSIC - This track was made after watching Beats Rhymes And Life, The Tribe Called Quest Documentary. In the movie, Phife Dawg was shown struggling with diabetes and after analyzing the condition I realized that in a sense I was a diabetic, not literally but metaphorically. The same way he was addicted to sugar I was addicted to material things also commonly referred to as "sweet things". So I decided to depict these similarities in this song entitled Tha Diabetic. Check It Out At The Link Above


RANSOM RAZINA's BIO - No one knows where he came from or who he is really. Allegedly, he was transported here from Planet Razina. However, the first Earth sighting of Ransom Razina was in P.G. County Maryland. Ransom picked up on the art of rapping at the age of 9 human years as an attempt to convey the teachings of his world to the humans of Planet Earth. After many more years and many more name changes, he finally stuck with the name Ransom Razina The Limited Edition (L.E.), which he epitomizes in his music. With his unique style of rap, uncanny word play, and Razinian locks, the 19 year old always stands out in a room. In addition to creating his own lyrics, he currently records and mixes all of his songs wherever he can take his mic and m-audio box.With plans of bringing back life and meaning in lyrics of hip-hop from the past while still making music that the future can enjoy, L.E. is truly wearing the title given by his mother and tattooed on his chest, of "The Legacy". This poet, performer, lyricist and producer will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. As his hit single states "They Cant Stop Tha Show".

Bio: Four-In consist of four members raised in the suburbs of Silver Spring MD right outside the outskirts of D.C. Ox Law, Nemesis, Cynical Minded, and Outragis make up Four-In with the double meaning of four members in it together and all from foreign ethnicities. They have a 10 plus years in relations to making music and now have decided to show the hip-hop community what their about. The style could be considered vintage, underground, 90’s era style of sound, with similarities to Wu-tang, Onyx, Mobb Deep, and even Little Brother as they’ve been told. Each member has their own individual style but still all lyrical at the same time.

Life That We Live - McKenton & Smooth (Official Music Video)

"Good Day" from The 72 Hour Project (feat. Ike Da Kid)


here

Popular music culture evokes emotion by linking the audience to the artist: individualized experiences and ego trips. Often, the music-making process involves many but ultimately highlights only one. The 72 Hour Project is a behind-the-music experience that allows its listeners to invest themselves in a different way. A beautifully chaotic collective of egos and art, the project comprises artists, songwriters, producers and musicians and places them in rare circumstances – creating an album from scratch in one weekend. Moving from the ego and towards an idea, The 72 Hour Project takes the experience, efforts and emotions of the artists involved and connects the audience to the process instead of only one voice. In this way the process becomes the artist, and essentially an entity of its own. For more information, visit www.the72hourproject.com.
