To me a one-star album is total trash without any good songs, beats, or lyrics. Nonetheless she does redeem herself on "Chuuch" and "Got It Poppin".Da Brat is a lyrical tongue twister with swift flows not some wack Lil Kim wannabe like most new female rappers. She ends the album perfectly with "Gushy Wushy" (what a stupid name title) which has Da Brat KILLING the track and the beat is straight ridah; vintage Brat.
A single mother, she worked as a waitress and a bartender and a voice-over actor and a writer; she hosted a radio show and she wrapped Sugar Daddy candies on a factory line.
In the last years of her life, in a story that might read as corny romance were it anyone else, Dunn reunited with her college boyfriend and married him.
The novel centers on a brood of siblings whose traveling sideshow huckster parents bred specifically to become, in the parlance of that world, freaks: a pair of Siamese twins; Arty, a boy with flippers for feet and hands who’d grow up to start his own cult; a telekinetic child; and a hunchback albino dwarf named Oly, the novel’s protagonist.
Their prenatal methods may have been loose and suspect, but their story brought to light the idea of the constructed self, calling into question traditional gender identity, prejudice against disability, and the notion of difference.
Every song is solid, save for the ultra terrible "Boom" and is good to let play straight through. This album is far from a one star album like some have already given. But that's not to say she can't rock the slower tracks; "Ain't Got Time To Waste", "I Was The One" and "Gotta Thing For You" are some tight tracks. As many have already mentioned, `Boom' is beyond wack...probably the worst song Da Brat has ever done.
Don't be fooled by Da Brat's first underwhelming single. To me a one-star album is total trash without any good songs, beats, or lyrics. Nonetheless she does redeem herself on "Chuuch" and "Got It Poppin".
I can admit that I was expecting more from this album but it doesn't mean that it was no good.
It was only disappointing that the album only had 11 songs, but with a new album from our beloved Da Brat, i am very pleased regardless of the number of tracks- Don't Hate!
This album does not measure up to Unrestricted but it is still very very good, let alone worth buying!
