audio review : Only Dimes ( song ) … G-Eazy + Too Short ( featuring The-Dream )

The title would be better without the word “Only”. Dimes is a perfectly suitable title for a song about the fact that you only fuck with dimes. That means The-Dream, G-Eazy and Too Short, don’t get into sexual or romantic relationships with girls who score less than a ten out of ten on the scale of beauty.

At least that’s the concept. The music is pretty too. But the chorus, performed by The-Dream, should be replaced by the one he sings just once at the end. That and a do-over of Too Short’s verse, which is flawed by an awkward edit after the twelfth bar, is all it would take to make this a good song.

audio review : The Pimp Tape ( album ) ... Too Short

Too Short’s Sex Tape, released just a few months ago, was a pleasant surprise. It’s his first good album in a long time. The Pimp Tape, the title of which has been promoted for about the last two years; the rapper says he’s been in the game for only thirty, so who knows how old these songs are; is a step back down to mediocrity.

Trophies is included on both albums; it should be limited to this one since it’s not about Sex; and it’s one of the best songs. Most of the others sound like mixtape filler due to lackadaisical beats and hooks. I like the theme though. Glorifying the pimping of “bitches” is a much-needed slap in the face of modern feminism.
