  • that guy

    i aint gon front, i was going to hate, but this isnt that bad compared to the other bullshit i heard on Soundcheck. that sample is on point too. good job, keep it up.

  • Mr. 90044

    Since when does a east coast, scratch that, since when does a supposed east coast rapper sound like he is from the South. I love some of these niggas from the South and sounds like dude tryn’a sound country and he aint even in the country. Since when did NE become a state? Can anyone find this on the map? Anyway, the sample is the same damn beat, just a couple of drums and claps changed the beat. That is not extrodinary. Lyrics were mediocre, I mean come on, at age 14, I was sayin I met her at the club.. LOL.. This should be “Soundchecc/Step Your Rap Game Up” cuz dude aint more special then anybody. Advice to Ill Child, drop the ill part and get on Soujla Boy’s level (refering to Kanye’s stupidity for saying, Solja Man was on the same level as Nas The God) and you’ll at least get u a ringtone like Mims. LOL. I dont know the rest of dudes catalogue so I wont say ur wacc, however this song is wacc and annoying. Ur Granny would b madd at u for destroying a definite classic. I’m sure the Isley’s would not clear it for u to sale.

    • Dmoney

      Omaha cats sound like that stop hatin you gots to travel more and I know Omaha,NE from the movie Belly

  • 239allday

    When I normally see that a nigga is multiple things like rapper/producer/who the fuck cares, the niggas garbage. But i’m fellin this niggas shit. It’s real hot! I hope this the single.

  • http://www.myspace.com/mrhundredgrand DID YOU KNO…..

    HUNDREDGRAND PRODUCTIONS ON THA BEAT…HOLLA AT HIM….

  • AntiHate

    Wow. Shit’s almost average. Y’all are kidding right? Calling yourself a ‘label’s dream boy,’ is a put off. But I read the influences and got encouraged again. But judging by his music I was pretty let down. He just sounds like what’s being played on the radio.

  • D-Lo

  • FaMe

    all hate aside, his flow is boring but the beat is hot. it’ll get people to listen. he should stick to production. it’s not bad though overall.

    my dude ready an he holdin it down around my neck of woods so stay focused an keep it coming dis da 402 an Ill Child got us on his back

  • Jack

    well gotta agree the radio will eat this shit up but that doesn’t mean he will sell records you gotta come from the heart to have longevity in the game and you can’t try and please the masses because they don’t care about you they will bump your shit only until the next hottest song comes out. you gotta go at it more for the people then then just let the masses catch on to what your doing instead of doing what there doing and conforming to what they want since that just makes you sound like everyone else.

  • http://www.myspace.com/slshelt Shar!
