B.G.: Champion


First off I have to give props to B.G. for getting off that manteca. Anyone who knows anything about addiction knows that kicking that “Country Crock” is no easy feat. I respect this man’s gangsta. Now his mixtape…well, that’s a different story. Son spits some hard shit all over the mixtape but it’s mediocre.

He talking about “baking cakes,” jewelry, guns, and the coveted Black Card (which, he probably stole from Baby or Slim) but it all sounds dated. Songs like “Give It To Me,” and “Ball Hard” made a nigga feel like this mixtape was never going to end. That’s not a good look.

Other than on ”Champion,” his flow was pretty much the same throughout the entire mixtape and his delivery was UPS (boring). That, of course, made this CD drag worse than the Village on Halloween, dunn.

Hottest Joint: “Clip 4 Clip”

Weakest Joint: “Same Hood”

    i fuck with Gizzle niggas need to check the shit out first before they can call it trash or not i’m not going to go off one persons review

  • The_Truth

    B.G. (not Gizzle) has been my dude since ’96. . .but I’ma keep it all the way real. He will never get back to what he was on All on U Vol 1-2. I can listen to that today and still can’t believe a 16 year made that! He makes decent cuts here-n-there, but he’ll never get back to what he was 96′-99′.

  • DJ Knox

    That’s where ur wrong, oneofthemyo’s. N.Y. niggas are NOTORIOUS haters/dickriders. Note: circa ’94. Outjast wins best new group to a hail of boos. Dre3K says’The South got something to say!!” Now, they all on his dick over a decade later.

    Say what you want about B.G.’s music. But he is the rawest most gutta gangsta rapper that’s coming out the southern region. I respect him as an artist, because he never try to change up to appeal to coperate america, you’ll find no commercial shit on any of B.G.’s albums. He been keeping it all the way street ever since he dropped his first album “True Story” back in 1995 and he was only 14 years old on that album. Im a major fan of Gangsta rap. I love the old NWA, Spice-1, Geto Boys, MC Eiht, Hot Boys, Soulja Slim, Scarface, Trick Daddy, B.G., C-Murder, 8Ball & MJG, Snoop Dogg(during his glory days), etc., the list goes on. I can tell you B.G. dropped 4 albums that’s considered classics in the south, Chopper City (1996) Age 15, It’s All On U Vol. 1 (1st Half 1997) Age 16, It’s All On U Vol. 2 (2nd Half 1997) Age 17 & Chopper City In The Ghetto (1999) Age 18. I have much love for B.G. music. He is very underrated and he influenced a lot of today’s gangsta rappers. You won’t find no super lyrical punch lines in his rhymes, but you will find that gutta reality rap. No other nigga out the south is fucking with him on that raw gangsta shit. He needs to hurry up and drop ‘Too Hood To Be Hollywood’!

    Too Hollywood? LOL. Niggas is comedians. I said the dude spit some hard shit and i respect his G, but BG ain’t gonna be as nice as he was in the 90′s. I love that hardcore shit, but when it’s spit over wack beats and the same flow is used over and over, i’m good on all that.

  • Town Business

    BG is a muthafucking dopefiend .. once a dopefiend always will be. BG had the same lyrics year in and year out. Yes he had a great spark in the late 90s and couple slaps in the early 2000s .. but nothing lately

  • FORTY

    Niggas forget that B.G. and Juve put cash money on the mutha fukkin map back in the day!! B.G. held it down in the south while Juve put cashmoney Nation wide with 400 Degrees!!!! B.G. is the one that molded Wayne and bout his punk ass in the game….
