Dem Franchize Boyz On Top of Our Game

demfranchisecover.jpgIn 2004, Dem Franchize Boyz’s breakout single “White Tees” stuck in people’s heads like bubble gum. But despite the song’s popularity and catchy hook, it didn’t help their self-titled Universal Motown debut move substantial units. Now armed with Jermaine Dupri’s support and another anthem in “I Think They Like Me (So So Def Remix),” Parlae, Jizzal Man, Buddie, and Pimpin’ try once again to bring their Atlanta “snap music movement” to the forefront with On Top of Our Game.

Like all good Southern artists, DFB are adept at making both trunks and booties shake. That’s evident on their latest single “Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It,” where the crew breaks down their patented shoulder-dippin’ dance step. The same can be said for the Three 6 Mafia collabo “Don’t Play With Me,” where the two crews tear the club up with brash bacdafucup banter over Vaushaun Brooks’ boomin’ 808 drum kicks. Then on the Bun B–assisted “My Music,” Jizzal spits, “It’s fuck the cops, serve the rock, on the block music/ And any club, anyone, they don’t rock this/I’m setting my trend, dawg, it’s lean wit it, rock wit it.”

The not-so-subtle reference to a previous hit doesn’t stop there. DFB continually mention “white tees” and people that “like me” throughout the disc. Add to that the inclusion of actual remixes for “White Tees” and “I Think They Like Me,” and the repetitiveness borders on annoying. They do attempt to show some versatility with the R&B-tinged “Freaky As She Wanna Be” featuring Trey Songz, but newcomer Young Juve’s tender track gets bogged down with numerous fellatio requests.

Although they’re no lyrical giants, Dem Franchize Boyz are good at making fun, danceable music. Problem is, fans can only groove to the same rhythm for so long. Let’s just hope DFB learn a few more tricks before they snap back on the scene. —JAMES E. BARTLETT

  • http://xxlmag.com bobdigi

    dfb d4l both of them sound the same, they both wack.Their whole career is just a joke.

  • MONEY ON MY MIND

    one word WACK!!!!!!!!!

    cali all day

  • kmax25

    i cant hate on dfb or d4l cuz they shit bang in the clubs here in the south but i couldnt listen to that bs in my car or any other time for the matter. that snap music is hot right now and they cashing in while its hot, just like crunk, g-funk, or reggaeton. the only problem i have is that you have 2 rap groups with 4 in each group and aint one nigga outta the 8 lyrical. thats a damn shame. its all about selling dope, chicks and poppin bottles at the club. we dont even know what they really about. i guess that wasnt their goal.

  • http://myspace.com/bmp Def

    this album was pretty wack…only tracks i like were “My Music” “I Think They Like Me”, the song with Jim Jones, and “Lean With It Rock With I” the joint with Three 6 Mafia wouldve been good but is wack cuz DFB messes it up

  • http://myspace.com/bmp Def

    and 4 the record D4L sucks major major major ass how they even get a deal? DFB aint that great but they are sure as hell better than those D4L bitces

  • young_bleek

    these niggas is wack and lame what happened to hip hop i bout to start lisiening to country if another group like dfb get a deal.ooh yea whoever said something bad about ti needs to go get a rope, a bottle of lighter fluid and a match then hang and burn yo self……fo’real fo’real

  • Atl nigga

    Fuck yall niggaz hatin these young niggaz gettin more money than you and they don’t have to be the best rappers they know what to put out to get tv and radio play and get played in the club, if you hate it so much u better not dance to it in the club, but I bet you’ll see some hoes dancin to it and thats when a nigga from the south will come up and take yalls bitches, so keep hatin!

  • tdc

    im ridin wit ya all day young bleek ..im from da south and ima rep it to da def but d4l and dfb are both fuckin up hip hop but i love and respect they hustle though cause they both gettin money dats what its about..p.s. im bout to start listening to country too cause dees niggas bout as hard as garth brooks lol. and whoeva said t.i. was wack needs to be shot in da throat wit a high powered rifle from point blank range cause is runnin is da real

  • Siege

  • Sidewalks Of NY

    What has the Hip-Hop game come too? You can be a group of lyrically-challenged MCs from the South and still manage to get play all over MTV and BET, along with constant spins on the radio?( I cant believe Hot97 plays that wack song on the airwaves )

  • http://source one

    siege i agree with u about the snap music thing but nigga u trip’n talk’n bout andre 3000 he’s one of the dopest most creative emcees around. i cant say the same 4 his partner big boi cause that nigga cant rap 4 shit but dre is the shit and i’m from cali.not the south

  • DW85

    One word comes to mind when describing DFB:WACK! I mean it’s cool that they are caking, but enough is enough. XXL should’ve given them an XS.

  • choppa

  • Pap

    These niggas are definately whack….but they do have 2 hit singles…dunno how that works. The whacker the nigga is…the more spins he gets i guess.

  • Baby D

    DFB and D4L are both some straight shit!!! They have no lyrical talent. And this has nothin to do with hatin on southern rappers because I love most of them but I can’t stand when rappers that are straight shit but get more radio play than the real ass rappers. Like Talib Kweli, JR Writer, Young Gunz, Mobb Deep, etc. And why the fuck did lean wit it, rock wit it and laffy taffy ret more radio play than Bun B’s Drapped Up and Get Throwed?

  • Babyface G
