Thread: Straight Up the Block - Track Review

    Default Straight Up the Block - Track Review

    Straight Up the Block

    Digi Snacks
    2008

    RZA

    David Banner




    [Intro]

    [Chorus x2 Jay-Z sample]

    And I'm straight up the block, and I'm straight up the block
    Lon, London, Japan, Lon, London, Japan
    And I'm straight up the block, and I'm straight up the block
    Lon, London, Japan, to the top of the pot

    (RZA)

    Who got the biggest dick? Who got the phattest whip?
    Who got the baddest bitch? Who got the fullest clip?
    Crib in Paris, France, plus in Maryland
    In Baltimore, I bought the cabstand
    Up in Burbank, the crib, I smiled at Hillary
    Bless the valley with the hundred dollar chivalry
    Got the UFC Bodog on my catalog
    Mayor Koch Records, they the landlord
    It's the Digitech, you ain't get a check
    You better get a deal, better make a bet
    Get ya money right, what an appetite
    I see y'all cats later, about to catch a flight

    [Chorus x2]

    (RZA *Beretta 9* #Rugged Monk#)

    Je m'appelle, Bobby Digital
    Comment allez vous?, mademoiselle
    Le original, puff e tranquel
    Il n'est pas ordinaire ladival
    Ouais bon bon, trŤs bien
    «a va, let's get it on
    Plus the yacht, we just docked
    Yo Kinetic, son *yeah* let 'em flop
    *A box of Belvedere*, private stock
    My Karachi jacket, Gucci watch
    Yo, Rugged Monk, scotch on rocks
    #Ayo, Bobby D, what's up with Goldielocks?#

    [Chorus x2]

    [Outro]

    one of the worst songs rza's ever made or been involved with, if not the worst

    and i thought the jay-z sample was saying 'straight off the block'

    I dunno why the song is called Straight Up the Block then, perhaps making this song even worse? I kinda like it though, voted decent.

    This song isn't good but its a guilty pleasure for me. Whatever machine makes that awful drum sound needs to be erased from fucking existence, since I've been hearing those weak ass snare farts for 10 years on the radio.

    3 stars.

    One of those tracks that you try not to hear often. A fairly disapointing lp for me this one. some great stuff but after 8D I had HIGH hopes. C'est la vie

    I never read a b-rock track review before. The recent buzz caused me to look at them.

    I don't see what all the hype was about. I am indifferent.

    As far as the track, it's garbage. And I kind of like Digi Snacks. But I almost always skip this bullshit.

    It's not the worst song I've ever hears, but it sucks.

    And I didn't vote, because I don't like the rating scale.

    That first verse is probably the worst verse RZA has ever dropped. At least in his top 5 worst ever.

    Just as a reminder.... Wu-Latino has never worked with the Wu-Tang Clan.
