Webbie
Savage Life 2

TRILL/ASYLUM/ATLANTIC
L.gif

As Trill Entertainment’s first artist to break nationally, Webbie has had ample opportunity to blow. In 2005, his raunchy “Give Me That” picked up steam and led to the remix of “Bad Bitch” getting placed on the Hustle & Flow soundtrack. With two high-profile hits under his belt, the Baton Rouge rapper easily earned a gold plaque for his solo debut, Savage Life. But Webbie’s shine slowly dimmed as Trill attempted to turn the spotlight toward his label mate Lil Boosie. Now, after a three-year hiatus, Web goes for his once again with Savage Life 2.

Pussy and poignancy—those are the two extremes Webbie explores on his sophomore set. On the brash “Thuggin’,” Web uses his garbled Southern drawl to snarl, “Bitch, don’t tease me/If you come to my spot, is you fuckin’?/If you not, then you leavin’.” Then he manages to pen a cautionary tale to his son over producer B-Real’s synthesizer blurps for “Just Like Me” (“Chill, son/I’ma be real, son/I promise you only gonna live once/Puttin’ you onto game while ya still young”). Just as quickly, he transforms back to a bedroom bully for the hittin’-and-quittin’ ode “First Night,” before describing the negative aspects of rap stardom on “You a Trip.”

It’s mostly when Webbie fails to stick with a consistent topic that the album hiccups. Songs like the electric-guitar-powered “I’m Hot” and the finger-pointing “Y’all Ain’t Makin’ No Money” meander along without any real conceptual focus. Even though Mannie Fresh’s deep 808s and wailing guitars on the Young Dro–featured “I Know” are head-nod-inducing, there’s not much more to the subject matter than clichéd raps about Webbie’s wrists being so cold.

Luckily, the raunchy rapper finds his footing on “Missing You,” a heartfelt dedication to his girl that’s laid atop a familiar Lionel Richie sample—once again laying credence to the notion that Webbie has brief flashes of brilliance when he expresses himself without resorting to vulgarity. While Savage Life 2 sounds redundant at times, it’s the kind of ignorant shit you’ll love and can’t front on.—PAUL CANTOR

  • NAWLEDGE

    Just like the reviewer says, when Webbie isnt being the redundant rapper, he comes off as brilliant. Southern niggas got talent, but they rap about bullshit simply to sell. Simply to have some damn ringtone plaques. It’s a fucked up game. But the album is much to redundant for my flavor. It’s an L at the most. Not TERRRIBLE. But with no substance, slight lyricism, barely any creativiy. Same shit over and over. Andre 3000 needs to drop a dope album to school these niggas on southern lyricism. Real nigga shit.

And you obvioulsy didnt even read what I stated. I said Webbie is good when he raps about things that actually matter. Yea, we need them club songs, but not ALWAYS. Shit is redundent now homie.

    webbie is the truth, and Rambo raises a good point. Webbie is a still a youngblood with room to improve.

  • Ja

    its got nice beats and i think he’s a honest rapper but lyrical abilities as it stands now below average and I’m more into lyrical shit so i don’t think this one is for me but I’ll give um another chance on his next project.

  • POLO DIZ

    • NAWLEDGE

      Naw homie, I wasnt tryin to hate on the man. I was just sayin that the game is fucked up because, niggas like Webbie like to talk about other issues. More than just sex, chains, and money. But to sell, they have to sacrifice that. Then niggas end up soundin redundant, feel me? Thats all I was sayin. Webbie could be tight, but he gotta eat, so he basically selling his soul for some change. It a fucked up game…

LET WEEBIE COME WITH A POLITICALLY CORRECT SONG AND SUPPORT OBAMA OR SOME SHIT, I PROMISE AND YOU AND I BOTH KNOW IT WOULD NOT BE PUT IN STORES. THEY (WHITE AMEREICA, RECORD EXES,THOSE IN CONTROL OF WHAT WE SEE AND HEAR) WANT US TO BE IGNORANT, AND THESE CATS JUST WANT TO EAT, SO THEY GIVE IN AND PUT OUT WHAT THE COMPANIES TELL THEM TOO. INDEPENDENT WOMAN IS AS CLOSE TO AN INTELLIGENT SONG AS IT’S GONNA GET FOR WEEBIE, I HOPE NOT BUT PROBABLY SO. THE VIDEO FOR EXAMLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE TO SHOW REAL WOMEN IN REAL SITUATIONS, NOT THAT WE DON’T HAVE FEMALE BLACK DOCS OR NO SHIT LIKE THAT, BUT I WOULD RATHER SEE WHAT I HEARD RATHER THAN THAT SCRIPTED ASS VIDEO, WHERE THE REAL WOMEN AT?

    savage life one was a classic! I dont know where all the hate is coming from. All you east coast niggas is shitty and straight haters bro. East Coast niggas lack the swag and chrisma to understand why all people like the south now.

  • KSAW

    Im from the north…Buffalo, NY to be specific and I have nothin against da south as a matter a fact I have notin but love for da south. As far as music goes, I feel that everyone has their time to shine. The East coast had their time, the West coast, and the Midwest had their time so now its time for the south to have their shine. Dont get me wrong I still listen to Jay-Z…I listen to his old stuff and other rap from the different sides of the country from back in da day, but da most recent hot shit is comin from the south and bein the music listener dat I am, I listen to whatever is hot to me and dat shit is hot so ima listen to it. And I was always da type, if da beat aint hot, I dont wana hear it..its not just bein lyrical dat matters its how u say it like yo swag dat makes wha u say hot. Like u can say anything and it could be hot becuz of da way u say it..put dat wit a fire ass beat and u gota good song. Its just a different culture. Of course southern music is gon b different from east coast rap..da people are different. Personally I like southern music and da south becuz its different from wha im used to. Nobody don wana hear da same shit aw da time, well at least I know i dont. Da main people hatin on da south be from NYC cuz they come over here to Buffalo to go to school here and hate on Buffalo all the time and get on MY FUCKIN NERVES. So dont direct dat “FUCK ALL NORTHERNERS” statement to everyone up here cuz we aw aint like dat, well at least not in Buffalo. And yea I do like southern niggas but I aint no “NY Ho” like whoever said..shit fuck dat. And I do got Webbie Savage Life 1 and 2. Da first and second CD is hot. He probably sound redundant to others, but to me he just spittin sum real shit..him and Boosie. I am fans of both and da Trill fam. And I do know my “ROOTS” to respond to dat comment made, shit my grandaddy from Alabama and my fam do got contact wit sum of dem dat is still down there. But of course ima never forget where I came from. I was born and raised in Buffalo and its always gon be in me, but it is time for a change cuz im not stayin here im movin down south of course. But to conclude I kno sum mufuckas gon read dis and say fuck you…well nigga fuck you too…you just gon done readin some real shit

  • Bam

    the hole album raw as a fuck that shit sick

  • AJG Da Aviator

    straight forward i will say FUCK all you haterz. give a nig props for gettin money cuz dats all dat matters at da end. No matter how good or so-called wack, he’s gettin his cutt and makin his dream true. If redundant music gets you paid, then wutdafuk, do wut u can. A stripper stripes, a hoe does her whorring and a pimp control them to make money, dats all its all about. im sick bout most Northern niggas hatin but hell yall b da main ones playing dat shit. come on, change yall motherfuckin faces cuz its str8 ugly right now. Stop hatin and give props where its deserve. “someone new” is the best trrack on da whole cd and it encourage my azz to listen to da rest. Get yo shine on Webbie….. AJG

  • Lil One

    All I wanna know is do any of yall know Webbie personally? I didnt think so! Webbie is a real cool dude who has been through alot of things in his life. Yall hear a couple songs that he made and now yall think yall know him. All yall who think that his songs are simple minded and dont mean anything need 2 just chill because his raps are about real things that actually happened in his life and the things that he are gonna do. Yall prolly like rappers that yall know nothin about and dont know if what they rapping to yall is the truth or a lie. But all im here 2 say that I know this man personally and he makes new songs everyday and the songs on his cd are from like 2006-2008 and whatever songs that the producers listen 2 and like are the ones that go on his cd. All this hatin on him is not even called for if yall dont know anything about this man. Im not sayin that I like him just because I grew up with him, Im just sayin if you dont know anything about this man shut your damn mouth. His cd is cold and so is the rest of the songs that he makes. Idk y yall arguing about his age it aint like none of yall was at his birthday party with the rest of us! If you dont like him dats cool he gon make his money regardless!! Yall need 2 get a life on here agruing and cursing each other out about somebody yall dont even know. I agree with “av from the ok” if yall want lyrical content go read a book or a poem or something.

    I’ve heard Webbie’s music, and it’s Party music, and there’s nothing wrong with that. I’m into more socially conscious music myself, and find most hip-hop today to be juvenile, but, people are obviously more simple-minded and less educated if rappers like Webbie outsell Nas, Immortal Technique, and the like of more poetic, and intelligent MCs. Webbie is not an MC. The only Southern rhyme-spitters whom I’ve heard that are on-par are Luda, Andre 3000, Lil Wayne, and T.I. The rest don’t have what it takes. Peace.

  • smitty

    i understand what yall commercial peeps talkin bout.but on some real shit these days people like to hear and listen to real shit not some made up imaginary azz rymes that dont even make since! one thing bout webbie and boosie, shit ask anybody u can play the whole cd..not just one or two songs..dat bitch roll mane..go listen to miracle and im ready on savage life 2..real shit..from a nigga n niggaz that came from the mud! Louisiana n Florida..aint nothing fucking wit us!!im from baton rouge..i know how the shit is.i respect lyrics..but i love real shit!

    wow some of yall are some dick riderz. i can hate this shit all i want cuz its garbage. call me a hater and get over it. i dont give a shit if youre from fuckin alaska, if cant rap, then i dont fuck wit u. all you southern dudes get heated when anyone as anything to say about a southern rapper like he’s ya homie or something.

  • buss

    Honestly i’m tired of hearing about north or south and how ny is hating, to be honest we could care less about what happens in the south, but it seems like everytime a southern rapper get a little shine its fuck ny. truthfully i listen to alot of south music all the time, i listen to dudes that are not even poppin on the scene like that, and alot of ny people do as well but i bet people from the south have no idea who some of our underground rappers are, its kind of dumb to read the shit you people from the south write, cause its nothing but hate, i’m not saying all of you but the majority does that and some ny people do that stupid shit also, lets just cut the crap and listen to who we like regardless if they are from the north or the south…

  • Beautiful Baby

    U bitches is trippin dat Savage Life 2 go WAY harder den any otha nigga shit out right na!!!

  • http://myspace.com/agproductionz agindtown

    buss, that’s stereotypical ass comment you made is not true. I feel you because alot of us feel the same way about NY, but not all of us pimpin. Yea alot of these simple minded young southern niggaz don’t check out underground NY flava because they to stuck on material bullshit. But me, I am 30 and I grew up on East Coast music and im a producer from Dallas. That’s all we used to see and hear on Yo MTV Raps with fab 5 Freddy before southern music even existed, so the music runs through my vains. I know good music when i hear it no matter where it comes from. When I heard the record scratch on my philosophy, that’s what inspired me to start DJ’ing and ultimately start producing. As far as Webbie, shit is falling off, he’s just riding the money train and not giving a damn about longevity. I would rather be broke than to do what the label wants me 2 do. Thing is I’m not broke so if none of my artists ever get heard, Lord made me multi-talented and I ain’t even trippin on RAP. Way more business ventures out here to get paid other than dope and RAP. Get ya game up niggaz! most rappers broke! Need to read up on how most contracts are structured and I bet it won’t be so many people trying to be superstars as Lupe says!
