THE BAD SEED “o_O THE MIXTAPE ALBUM” (REVIEW)

bad seed side eye pick

Review by GMS

I have to admit, I wasn’t exactly sure what “o_O”, in the title of this project meant. I knew it had something to do with Texting and Twitter, so … I asked a 12 year old. “Side-eye, you know like muhf*@!as is lookin’ at you side-eyed, nahmean?” he asks me. Um, yeah, now I do.  Damn.

Now that I understood the title and the cover art, I popped the CD in my car stereo and prepared to ride out. The following is a track by track review and description.

1. INTRO- DOWN TO THE WIRE – This is a typical mixtape intro, with quotes from movies. It’s cool, puts you in a mood, leading up to the first song, “Let Us Pray”

2. LET US PRAY(produced by VES) The concept is exactly what the title suggests. “I ain’t super Holy, but, I know right from wrong,” Seed exclaims and then describes how the world is going to hell in a handbasket. The beat drops with a kick, bass and a preacher singin’ about God. Super soulful. Seed does a lot of concept songs, like “Lil Voice’s”, “You Ain’t My Daddy” and “Julie” (google those videos). “LET US PRAY” is one of those. The song is about somethin’. The music is sophisticated. Seed surprises us by singing the chorus himself (no autotune!). I love this joint.

3. MESSAGE FROM PETE ROCK – shout outs from Pete Rock, mixtape style. PR tells us how he used to play his joint on the radio all the time and how he got his back. That’s awesome, hope a PR beat comes from that in a future project.

4. 9X OUTTA TEN FEAT. HATIAN (produced by VES) – The beat hits you right away, like Daaamn this gon’ be a banger! It is produced by VES, same as the previous track. In fact, VES does the lion share of production on the project. This is a cautionary tale about the snakes in the game, corrupt politicians, feds,  that “nine times outta ten” throw salt in the game. I love this joint up until 2:17, where Haitian comes in, spittin’ dancehall style. His lyrics are not bad, but something sounds off about how it lays on the beat. It might be the mix. It sounds like his vocals were done somewhere else and then flown in. They don’t match the quality of Seed’s vocals. Song is still dope though.

[New Music] BAD SEED: Pose Click (Audio)

Bad Seed the MCWord on the streets, the Bad Seed, aka Niggalis Cage, is about to drop a new mixtape. He sends me new songs to listen to and give feedback from time to time and I just got this one. It isn’t supposed to drop officially until Tuesday, but I’m leakin’ it a day early. You can thank me later.

The song is funny! Seed is exposing chicks who take pics of themselves in front on the bathroom mirror (“she a bathroom model”), but their tub is dirty, toilet ain’t clean, toothpaste on their mirror!

Check this excerpt from Verse 2:

“You aint Beyonce and you aint Rihanna, welfare-recipient, period, comma,
Delerious, drama, ya oughta be ashamed baby girl, cause you somebody’s momma,
Clean ya shit-bowl, THEN get bold,  she got the evo 3D and the shit gold,
But ain’t cop AJAX for her strip tease? … You a jump off, bitch please! …

… I’m showin’ niggas in the stu- how these twitter bitches do,
Yeah, we like ass – but we like CLEAN bitches, too!”

Bad Seed’s such a character. He can be hilarious and disrespectful – but he ain’t wrong tho! That’s why I love it!

The Bad Seed – “Intelligently Ignant” (Review)

 

The BAD SEED - INTELLIGENTLY IGNANT – production by Kleph Dollaz, VES, Golden Eye, Will Tell and DP , as well as features from Talib Kweli, MIMS, Nature, Kool G Rap, PH (aka Pumpkinhead)and Touch

Bad Seed sets it off right with Brown Water. He comes out the gate immediately telling his story, honest, brutal, emotional, nothing glorified. Right away we find out what he means by “6th Man Entertainment”. He addresses his former record deal with Warner Brothers, his underground status, fair weather friends and burnt bridges. This is refreshing, because for once an MCee is not bragging on how dope his rhymes are, how fly his girls are, how much money and jewelry he has and how he buss his guns all day. Instead, Seed is doing what you supposed to do in Hip Hop – be honest, be passionate and most importantly – tell your story.
