Rain: The Most Wanted Baby Father
The first time I heard of this kid, Rain was a while back when he was about to drop a mixtape dedicated to Tupac and his classic Makaveli album. I was interested in listening to The 7 Day Theory Tribute but when I found out he didn’t even know Pac, I fell back and let that man do whatever the hell he wanted. Since then he’s been building a buzz and even made it into the Show & Prove pages of XXL.
With The Most Wanted Baby Father, Rain created a whole mixtape geared towards women. From the first track “The Roller” to the last, “Most Wanted Baby Father,” the North Carolina rapper did nothing but plead his case as to why he’s a player, the kind of man a woman would be honored to be with, what kind of women he’s been involved with, and why he’s so fly. It was like listening to a Marine trying to convince a 13-year-old snow bunny to turn tricks. On joints like “The Baddest” and “Kiss & Tell” all son did was talk about ish like, “Baby face but her body grown/that tattoo on her lower back really turns me on.” I’m surprised R. Kelly wasn’t featured on this joint.
But it wasn’t until I heard him say, “It’s nothing like what you used to/usually these niggas just wanna use you/I do me after I do you/cop a pair of shoes for me, let you choose two/and get the bags to match/leave you with the Visa, let you tear up Saks/I don’t trip on the receipt whenever you get back/as long as when it’s time to ride you got my strap,” on “Something New” that he convinced me that yes, this man really is the most wanted baby father… of women who are homeless. And I don’t mean homeless women who live in a shelter. They actually have self-respect. I mean these Amy Winehouse hoes who roam the streets and subways at night barefooted with a official Louis V bag. They’ll have this man’s baby in a heartbeat.
I have to say that I was unimpressed with dunn. Maybe it was because this mixtape was so one sided, but lyrically dude was about average. He really didn’t say anything mind blowing or came up with a concept song that would make him anymore relevant than that bum ass “Chocolate Rain” song that Jay-Z sang when he was a teen (Oh wait, that’s not Jay?!). Listening to dude trying to sing on “Get It Girl” made it painfully obvious that dude couldn’t even cut it as a member of Menudo. Dude isn’t a horrible rapper, he’s just an aight one who will end up having more kids than Dirt McGirt with no means of supporting any of them if he doesn’t carve out his own niche. Just ask Lil Zane.-The Infamous O
