WHUT DA FUX UP?
We hardly EVER do full album reviews, that kind of pressure sucks, but this time there was something to say about every single track! PRICE OF FAME - It was well worth the wait to say the least. 34 seconds into the project we get Trey Tuck going at it!! Short intro to the beat and then straight bars with the 1st song "The Soul"!!! This is the kind of intro we like, show your skill right away, why wait?
2nd song "92 Cents" is a FAVORITE! It's a good track; "when you up they try to milk ya ass like cash cow" - This song sets off the feel that this will be a superior project. It has a rugged feel to it in a sense but the experienced explained really touches imagery that artists don't really reach anymore. Great lyrical content, and ability, ability, ability is the word for Trey Tuck's approach.
"Ruin The Party" is another heater, it's the 1st song with features, but they did not hurt and only helped the super force the album has started with!! It's seriously one of the best we've heard from anyone this year. Yup this album has slid past others we've highly supported.
"Sinnerz" is a much needed type of song, another good lyrical display, and a smooth flowing tune. It's not a filler song, that's a lower class range, this song is a good everyday type listen, very seeable on a playlist on Spotify or iTunes - Hint - Hint...
Break and pause!!! WHUT DA FUX!!! "Running Out of Time" is a true classic. We may use that word a lot in this review, because my god, the production screams "classic", and the content screams, "keep it on repeat!" WELL... That's exactly what we did during a quick break taken before we went through the rest of the album. Listen to this song right now, OMG Status -> LISTEN - New Favorite, ok maybe 2nd favorite, not sure we can't decide... It's DOPE regardless.
OK Back to the album...
Bright side of the story, we've been exposed to the next song, ROCKIN' WIT YA "a woman aint a woman until she knows her worth" - Crazy love song, more like reality in song form. Trey Tuck really touches a few points that many people in relationships can 100% relate to. Worth every minute of listening time.
"Room 414" was a spin on another love story type song. This song is decent, some others may appreciate it more than we do. HOWEVER The chorus is great, it has good emotion, and the feature Monét adds a good vibe to the song, that's really the A+ gainer. This makes it more than a basic love song.
"9" is a song about Trey Tucks Mom - RESPECT - Ok you really need to have the strongest love and humility for your mother and self to dedicate a track to your mother, slapped right in the midst of making a classic album, he drops a song about his mom. DOPE - It's not corny, it's really a solid piece of art. This guy is genius!
"Were the sacrifices you made really worth the price of fame?" That's how real the title song "Price of Fame" kicks off. The chorus is a feel good tone. Trey Tuck comes on and basically plays the facilitator and motivational speak at the same time on the song. It's realistic life direction. With valuable lyrical content, lessons can be learned from listening to this project, and that is fully respectable.
"WWJD" is a dedication to his religion which is cool, some people can relate to this one as well. The whole vibe of the project is ended with this laid back song. It's that last embrace and farewell on an album that really was worth the wait, the listen, the time, and the motivation put into this project!!!
WOW - What an ALBUM! We want more and more!
