Satchford: pretty good intro
SwagGordon: the first 10 secs remind me of a Ratatat production
Satchford: “sick with it, I’m immune to the medicine”

Satchford: I was just thinking of that.

SwagGordon: 7/10 the rhymes are there and the lyrics are decent
Satchford: 5/10 Decent song
Could’ve changed up the flow on this one. The beat was asking for it
Hustle Hard ft. Shane Eli & Thirsty McGurk
SwagGordon: This Hustle Hard beat is nice
SwagGordon: this is track 3 and I can already tell dude isn’t going to switch the flow
Satchford: think so?
Satchford: the beat is okay. The chorus with voice is played out now.
Satchford: expected better from bks cuz I really like their stuff.
SwagGordon: whoever is featured on this joint…ripped!
Satchford: ft Shane Eli, Thirsty McGurk
Satchford: that 2nd verse was mean
SwagGordon: they ripped
Satchford: last verse was cool. coulda rapped it more in tuned with the beat
SwagGordon: 6/10 just lacking in energy….don’t get it wrong the effort is there and the skill is developed
Satchford: 4/10, yes I agree with you. This seems like a bonus/mixtape track. Just sounded like verses were thrown up there and they were done. Don’t get me wrong, the verses were solid.
Satchford: first of, I love the sample in this
at 2:06 the melody begins…some of the song also samples Mantronix’s “King of the Beats”
SwagGordon: yea this thing vibes good
Satchford: he switched the flow up a lil. He sounds right at home on this!
Satchford: the chorus is smooth, something to ride too

Satchford: “baby you complete me”-him talkin to his dreams….good stuff
“I hit the ground running no time for shoe laces…”
SwagGordon: geez that’s a hustle right there
Satchford: “never snapshot, plotting to capture the big picture”
Satchford: you can really feel his hunger in this song
Satchford: I like that
SwagGordon: yea he makes a complete song here
Satchford: like I said, this is all truth….str8 from the soul
Satchford: 10/10 he does a great job with this song, its relatable, its smooth, major replay value
SwagGordon: 8/10…..jazzy beat, real substance, rhymes on the beat properly, the structure of this song is somewhat complex
SwagGordon: not your normal verse, chorus, verse, chorus
SwagGordon: a little treat thrown in the mix
Take a sniff of this product
Insomnia ft. Thirsty McGurk
Satchford: this give a similar feeling to track 1 New Heights spacey, spooky feel
SwagGordon: this sounds like a Dr. Dre production
Satchford: like I’m walking through a graveyard
SwagGordon: dude has a lot internal thoughts spilt into his rhymes
SwagGordon: sinister track right here
Satchford: “freddy kruger you are wasting time, I cannot sleep” nice
The harmony on this chorus fits into the beat perfectly
Satchford: “I breathe in success, my heart pumpin ambition”
SwagGordon: Thirsty McGurk was off beat for a while
Satchford: I don’t like that monster voice on the chorus “sleep when I die”
SwagGordon: I don’t have a problem with it
Satchford: this should have been a solo track, no features
Come on the beat don’t just cut off like that
SwagGordon: fade that shit out homie
Satchford: thirsty mcgurk is going to fast in my opinion. Beat is too slow
SwagGordon: 8/10 nice tune right here….this thing is worth placement on the iPod
Satchford: 7/10. Really like Lerix’s verses and the vibe, monster voice in chorus is annoying, feature wasn’t needed
Satchford: this beat is bangin! BKS! So funky
SwagGordon: I’ve been waiting for someone to use this sampluer for so long
SwagGordon: didn’t do it justice tho
Satchford: I like this beat and chorus
Single-quality right here
SwagGordon: too much space to me
Satchford: a high school band playing in the background
SwagGordon: “better get your nose near Folgers” LMAO
SwagGordon: the patterned drums is pretty nice
Satchford: yep yep
SwagGordon: dude does a lot of bragging in his rhymes….haven’t really heard anything that explains why he is worthy of bragging about
SwagGordon: again stop cutting these beats and fade these shits out bro!
Satchford: “talk like I’m deaf cuz I speak through my actions”
Satchford: yea it IS alot of bragging
SwagGordon: 6/10 I like the drum patterns and the sample the rest of the song is aight….needs more energy or passion behind it
Satchford: 7/10 like the beat, chorus and most of the rhymes. A beat like that needs alot of energy and that’s what it’s lacking.
SwagGordon: I like this riff at the beginning of the song
Satchford: different beat, I like it. Like the beat during the verse
Satchford: this guy got the chorus down. Nice
SwagGordon: generic cymbals in the background? Fruity Loops?
SwagGordon: yea dude can hold a chorus!
Satchford: the beat could have used more work.
Satchford: it’s decent at this point with alot of promise. Sounds undone
SwagGordon: “I am working for that paper, yea, Michael Scott”….OMG LMAO the best line I heard from dude so far
SwagGordon: this song structure is nice….definitely unfinished product but has plenty of potential
SwagGordon: I believe I heard him throw a bridge in there?
Satchford: yea yea
Satchford: this could be a big club track
SwagGordon: with some work
SwagGordon: it would come across better performed live
SwagGordon: room for breaks and beat switching
Satchford: live drums too
Satchford: sooo much potential
Satchford: 6/10 LOADS of potential, sounds unfinished, the chorus is impressive once again and he has some quotables in here
SwagGordon: 8/10….potential is there, it has that rebel appeal, the song structure is different which is great! This that rock star music ya dig
Inject this in your veins slowly
Satchford: this beat!!!
Satchford: I LIKE THIS
Satchford: shouts to Tureek
SwagGordon: gosh this dude has the chorus game on lock
Satchford: upbeat and once again, gives that spacey feeling
Satchford: yea this chorus is major
Satchford: this is single quality
SwagGordon: the balance on this track is nice and the stories are life lessons
Satchford: he’s storytelling in this one too, switching it up which is good
Satchford: this joint is filled with wisdom
SwagGordon: so soulful man
SwagGordon: dude master this thang properly and push this track hard!!
Satchford: those synths!
Satchford: I love this track
SwagGordon: yea pretty good and he actually ended the beat properly! Not just a flat cut
SwagGordon: the transition on the track is pretty much flawless
Satchford: “but she always told em follow your heart and never turn back, she’d be a hypocrite to tell em to unlearn that”
Satchford: 10/10 and that’s all I have to say about that….(forrest gump voice)
SwagGordon: 9/10 everything is pretty much there….unique structure, substance, jazzy chorus, lyrics, flow, proper production
Worth a sync to the pod I would say
You OD’ed yet? Well if not here you go I’m ya puuuuusssssshhhhhhaaaa
Show & Prove ft. Shane Eli & Kamilah Gibson
Satchford: the chorus is nice but the girl needs some type of effect to her voice. The beat is so “monumental” sounding, she gotta match it
Satchford: feel me?
SwagGordon: yea it either needs to be mastered or shorty needs to be replaced
SwagGordon: sounds like a Keisha Cole track though
SwagGordon: I aint even gonna front I like this track
Satchford: nah she can sing but yea, it need to be mastered better
Satchford: this joint smooooth tho
SwagGordon: uh oh another bridge!!
SwagGordon: Kid Cudi type of mood

SwagGordon: “I only need a minute shed my nice guy imagine:…..goodness!!
SwagGordon: 10/10 shit just listen to this jammy & you’ll understand the rating
Satchford: 8/10 Smooth track for when you got a nice young lady over
if your veins haven’t collapsed yet
I’m On ft. Show Biz
Satchford: sound like a DJ Toomp beat for USDA/Jeezy
SwagGordon: true true
Satchford: once again, the chorus is nice
Satchford: “stick my tongue at these haters like big kids” lmao
SwagGordon: the chorus sounds too soft for this beat
Satchford: lol cool to me
The flow could use some work on this one
SwagGordon: the flow is aight to me….the beat sounds like it is incomplete to me
SwagGordon: Lerix reminds me of a mix of Pac Div & The Cool Kids
Satchford: and Lupe
Satchford: Chucky inglish huh
dude’s flow is very similar to Diggy Simmon’s on this track
SwagGordon: the delivery sounds like he is just reading off paper hear and not even rhyming to the beat
Satchford: “ill be in the places where the pretty women party lots, they’ll be online busy hating in the comment box”
Satchford: yea I feel u, I get that feeling at times too
SwagGordon: OMG that line is so hilarious
Satchford: hahah so true
SwagGordon: he probably talkin about them people that be like “1st” whenever they leave comments
Satchford: or “F Lerix”
SwagGordon: str8 haters
Satchford: “dick riders!!!” -jigga on Imaginary Player
Satchford: 5/10 lacking energy, flow needed work, lyrics were good tho and I like the message. decent track
SwagGordon: 7/10 track was kind of plain but pretty good for a newcomer. Dude should have thrown an audio footage from the Jersey Shore at the beginning or ending of that song “if hating is your full time occupation, then I might have a job for you” (‘The Situation’)
Satchford: Overall this album or EP is good for a newcomer. Its alot better than most newcomers put out. Lerix has alot of potential and he has some gems on this CD. He seems to have a good ear for beat and working with BKS is always a plus. He needs to work on being a more versatile MC, switch up the flow a lil more and come up with more song concepts. Overall Rating 7/10
SwagGordon: I believe the contents of this album go together well and I agree with Satchford about the work that Lerix needs to do to improve his skills. I’m impressed by the beat selections tho because most newcomers do have a slightly terrible taste. If he can just reach the potential that I believe he can be then he could make a whole album that I would sync to the pod. Overall Rating 7.5/10
