“The intro, featuring the comedic Shannon D, sets an amazing scene of the hostile climate that always exists between men in women in regards to reationships and sex. Murph Watkins takes you into the depths of what I assume is every man’s conscience. “Dawg Shit” is an extremely inviting track accompanied with Murph’s melodic cadence that begins with a unique play on Jill Scott’s “He Loves Me”. Velvet Gunn gifts the song with her amazing vocals. He addresses his faults of wanting purely physical relationships with women eventhough he knows they want more.
“David Ruffin” is a braggadocious, drive slow, liquor intoxicated, pitched down masterpiece of a song. Plus, just like David Ruffin, Murph is definitey irreplaceable.
“My Now (Bullshit)” delves into the dealings with women who try to call him out on his bullshit. Murph however confronts the faults of her’s as well. Great production and lyrical content on this one.
“Glory Box” is one of my favorites. This somewhat hip hop remix of Portishead’s track produced by Nick Astro, seems like the male answer to the original song. In the original song a woman sings of her “Glory Box” being too special to just give away to any man and that you need a reason to get it. Murph rejects this idea along with Nick Astro. They aren’t with the comittment on this one. “Please dont fall victim, because feelings cause problems and problems cause crime all the time” No Strings attached please.
“AllaMuhBitches” Serious club banger. The lyrics are a bit ratchett but this one is easily a crowd favorite with the Turnt Up production and Murph’s witty lyrics. SLIDE… Hol-up ho!
Overall, this mixtape stays 100% true to the title and theme. I feel like this is a very honest and fun tape. The vulnerabilty of Murph’s presentation of the timeless themes is undeniably original and should be easily accepted by many. There are songs for everyone. This joint is on repeat!”
