Review #1,578: A1 Wissel "Determination"

Reviewed on 10.26.2016 (Review #1,578)

As I go through my autistic, fluctuatin’ emotions, I finna sit down and breathe fa a sec… Actually, lemme get fulla dat shit… *Goes to get fulla dat shit fa 7:05 PM…* *Returns to type this at 8:01 PM…* Well, that was interesting! One new bitch that hates me actually said, “Hi,” to me & really liked my 100it outfit & them golden shoes I got! You already know that’s celeb status, right there!! Speakin’ of celebs, here’s one I’m crazy about… *Laughs with excitement* I’m real crazy about, at tha moment! I’m holdin’ this dude down!! I wanted to review their 2013 CD, Determination, on my friend’s birthday, yesterday. However, I didn’t nap, tried a CBD edible & ain’t nothin’ really happen. Funny how when I wrote, “Determination,” I accidentally wrote, “Resurrection!” It’s ironic ‘cause this dude may “resurrect” somethin’ of mine! Shout out ta A1 Wissel!! I finna review Determination, released in 2013 on Gwap Gang Entertainment! Gotta love Wissel now, with Time Gang Entertainment & his hit single, my favorite song, my most-played song of ALL-TIME, my top song of tha year, “I’m Important”!! So yeah, without further or do, lemme review this! Let’s see how he does while I’m fulla dat shit!! Them hitz fa you, my slime!! OMG, I think I’m losin’ it!! Lip piercing!!!!! Start Time: 8:09 PM | End Time: 9:57 PM

Disclaimer: I rate each song from 1.0 – 5.0; each rating iz my own opinion! I only please myself wit my ratings! I don’t care how lyrical you are, as long as it’s jammin’ enough for me to like it! I look for beats, then vocals, and then lyrics. To determine my favorites, I will differ tha 4.0 ratings. If a song gets at least a 4.0 rating from me, I love it already. If at least a 4.6 rating, I pretty much really love it, as it’s considered mindblowin’ when I hear it! Any song can earn up to a maximum of a 5.0 rating. Anything I type before “ >>> “ iz what I’m sayin’ before I listen to tha song; anything after I type “ >>> “ iz what I think of tha song while I’m listening to it. If you sound like anything too mainstream for me, have auto-tune in your vocals, or talk about nothin’ but money and hoes (which I consider ‘typical’ topics), I’m not buyin’ it!

01. “Tough” feat. Lil’ One The Champ
Can’t wait ta hear what you got goin’ on on this table, here!! How will my moods be throughout this? Honest opinions at all times!! Leggo!!! >>> OMG, bein’ high and hearin’ that this sounds upbeat in tha beginning’s makin’ me go nuts!! Think: This bein’ three years-old’s makin’ me feel like this, like, ol’ skool, ‘90s-like! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s excellent! Luvin’ your street life lyrics at all times!! You wanna be a “millionaire”? Well, I’m gettin’ you & Doe-Doe to that status!! I feel every lyric you be spittin’, here! And, tha hook’s tha truth!! Fa’real!! Can’t deny it!! You spit tha real!! You don’t sound shitty, too!! And, you on tha 2nd verse, here, spittin’ rhymes, soundin’ nice off this beat, consistently… I must’ve been too high to where I ain’t even realize it was you on tha 2nd verse! I thought it was Lil’ One, lol!! And, keepin’ it goin’ wit Champ on tha 3rd verse, here, comin’ through, consistently wit tha different ages and shit; nice! Gotta luv that line on tha hook, Wissel! “I had a crush on a Chrome 9. I gave it to tha block…;” undeniable!!! My Rating: 4.9

02. “Guap”
London On Da Track doin’ tha production on this! How will it go? Lemme find out… >>> Actually, I thought negative when I was about ta hear this. However, I’m diggin’ tha beginning, here, and how you go “bonkers for tha guap!” I’ono, I’m not a fan of a money-braggin’ ego, but tha hook ain’t too bad… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds like you’re excited, in ya voice, ‘cause you’re rappin’ off a London beat… I’m likin’ how you sound on tha 2nd verse, here… Lol, tha London beat makes you wanna name-drop everything you got!! Lol! A celebrity-like Wissel all in one verse, lol! My Rating: 4.3

03. “Everywhere”
Anotha London On Da Track production!! I’ono, again…, lol! >>> I’ono, as far as tha production, it’s makin’ me feel like this a jacked-beat song; that’s what it sounds like… Most-likely, that means that I’m not too crazy about tha beginning… Tha hook’s ehh; whateva… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and nice about tha “too much TMI” when it comes to your “plug!” Not bad wit tha lyrics, but nowhere-near as great as that 1st song on here! “And then, I eat it from tha back like it’s fuckin’ pizza!” Yeah!! And, here you are on tha 3rd verse, feelin’ like “Back To The Future,” ‘cause you have “swag of tha ‘80s,” or whateva; dope… Of course, you inspire me to be a celeb! Luv my 1982 – 1984 babies!! My Rating: 3.7

04. “Suicide” feat. Percy Keith
Should’ve been 3:07 on tha length ‘cause 3:07’er’s husband committed “suicide” and that’s what she represents! Ugh, I’m feelin’ great, right now, really loopy!! Anyway, G-Motivation on tha beat with anotha one of my favorite dudes on tha feature!! I just mailed him a letter earlier this afternoon. I have gotten three letters total from him, so far, since he’s been locked up since October 14, 2015! FREE PERCY KEITH!!! Can’t wait ta hear this!!! I’m so fucking fucked up to where it feels CRAZY to put “feat. Percy Keith” in tha ID!!!!! Like, it’s real!!!!! >>> Yeah, I’m feelin’ tha excitement!! I’m much more excited than tha previous two jointz!! And, A+ beat but also, excellent-soundin’ radio edit!! Would’ve luved tha played this if I would’ve known about this CD, back then! Hook reminds me of Savage’s “Suicide”, a lil’, but this a great 2013 “Suicide”!! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and you doin’ ya thang on this, “smokin’ on tha pound!” Yeah!! Definitely soundin’ nice ta hear dat, Wissel!! And, here comes my favorite dude, Percy Keith, on tha 2nd verse, spittin’ dat A+-type shit! Crazy about tha “cereal!” A gangsta at its finest!! No one can compare!! Percy Keith, my favorite!! Consistently-spit verse; well done!! And, here you are on tha 3rd verse, “divin’ without tha Scooby gear;” dope!! My Rating: 4.9

05. “Barely Trust Myself”
And, lol, a second from 3:07 on tha length, here! Was I psychic? London On Da Track, once again… >>> I’m likin’ tha distorted vocals in tha beginning; sounds nice and anticipatin’! Tha beat ain’t too bad fa a plain-soundin’ one, but it has its euphoria hidden in tha background… Nice job wit tha 1st verse, here, Wissel! Gotta luv livin’ dat celeb life! Tha hook’s pretty serious; definitely feelin’ your energy! Luv tha lil’ interlude before tha 2nd verse of you talkin’ in tha background! Yeah, “Friends? I barely trust myself;” true! SMH: “Sugar, dat Sweet N Low!” Wissel!!! You bringin’ up tha job!!! Of course, somewhere, my job had ta appear!! In tha CD, itself!! Like, abandoned areas, an A1 Wissel review, a party, an event, my job comes into play!! It haunts me!! But yeah, great job wit tha 2nd verse; definitely felt tha consistency! You luv tha rap game! Hope you neva quit!! My Rating: 4.4

06. “Demons”
Here comes Decky On Da Track ta hook you up wit a banga! And, 3:55 on tha length, tha time I always clock in!! Since August 13, 2014! That means, this CD was only one year old tha last time I clocked under/over five minutes early!!! >>> Beat ain’t too bad, here; almost thought it was more clubby? This still nice! Tha hook’s definitely nice wit how you be talkin’ ‘bout dem “demons!” I got plenty of ‘em! It’s sad how we’re affected! Tha 1st verse soundin’ nice, here; you sound happy, lol! “Like a sacrificial lamb;” wow @ 1:10! Luv hearin’ you on tha hook! Dat Baton Rouge street shit at its finest!! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice, as you “ridin’ solo;” gotta! “I talked ta Freddie yesterday…;” gotta communicate! Always gotta communicate wit me, right?! Fuckin’ love that hook!! Tha 1st ½ from that other voice’s decent, but when you hit ‘em wit tha hook, it’s crazy!!! “Lord, protect me from my demons, my demons, my demons!” My Rating: 4.6

07. “Gangsta”
I feel like it gon take me ages ta finish this! That’s ‘cause I’m nice and fulla dat shit, as tha time goes slow! Only Track #07!! Millz produced this one; let’s see, here… >>> Ain’t expect ta be hit wit tha hook, right away… I feel like this gon sound special, like, I should really embrace Wissel’s music fa life!! Hook’s nice and catchy; definitely nice, Wiz! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds nice wit tha “fresh pair of Khaki’s;” that’s our Wissel!! Hope you always stay “fresh!” Oh, tha hook on-n-poppin’!! Yeah!! Anotha Wissel verse, here, comin’ through, “At home, eatin’ Mac N Cheese,” lol! Fuckin’ love you, Wissel!! Consistent rhymes for your everyday livin’ in tha streetz and gettin’ through every day in tha hood! Thinkin’: This was released 14 dayz before your 29th birthday… I’m 28, now, lol! I may be slow, but I do feel how you felt at 28, right now! I can feel tha celebness! Yes!! A 3rd verse, as you got a lotta “il”-soundin’ rhymes goin’ on, here! Definitely nice ta hear! Consistent rhymes, soundin’ like an excellent anthem!! My Rating: 4.7

08. “Workout” feat. Menace
Anotha G-Motivation track, here, wit Menace! >>> Sounds fast fa a start! Lol, Wissel wit a faster anthem, here! Definitely feelin’ tha hook; club shit at its finest! Can’t deny tha “playin’ wit dem bandz” shit, too, lol! Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you, Wiz, and it sounds like a real catchy track! “I can make that pussy whistle, fa Wissel!” Lol @ tha “whistle” & “Wissel!” Once again, excellent hook from Menace! Gotta feel tha fast vibe! Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse, Wissel, and you be seein’ a lotta attractions! Attractions = People, places, etc.! You got dat life on ya!! So glad you movin’ up in tha game!! And, givin’ Menace a chance, here, wit tha 3rd verse, as he keeps tha party vibe goin’! My Rating: 4.4

09. “OSS (On Some Shit)” feat. Geaux Yella
If I would’ve gotten this on time, I prolly wouldn’t’ve known. However, now, in 2016, I hear mixed things about our featured artist, here, Geaux Yella. I have a feelin’ it gon be top-notch, tho, wit Lil’ Ken on tha beat! Oh, God, 3:26 on tha length!! My manager’s birthday!! “TSS”!! “That”!! >>> Sounds like a gangsta-soundin’ beat and tha hook’s pretty serious; good “shit,” Wissel! Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it ain’t bad from you, Wiz; you sound great on this beat… Hearin’ Geaux on tha 2nd verse and he got some nice energy, here… Pretty serious, here; can’t deny tha music, regardless! My Rating: 4.2

10. “Over” feat. 38 Slim
London On Da Track, here, wit Slim! >>> Diggin’ how it’s a slower “ass” anthem, compared to tha “Workout” track. Sounds like a catchy hook from you, Wissel! Gotta keep tha music goin’!! I like how your rhymes “too potent” on tha 1st verse, here, doin’ ya thang! Definitely feelin’ tha vibes you got goin’ on, here, on tha “syrup” and err-thang! 38 on tha 2nd verse, here, comin’ through wit some consistent rhymes, mainly about things bein’ “over,” lol. Here you are on tha 3rd verse, spittin’ some consistent rhymes! Lovin’ err-thang you spittin’ except that you were “sorry;” can’t be!! Lol, I like how you ended tha 3rd verse with, “Wissel;” nice closing! My Rating: 4.0

½time: Got to tha halfpoint of this bitch… I have ta say, this shit definitely has its jamz on it! Definitely feelin’ tha shit you bringin’ to tha table, here! It’s like tha fall version of you, with tha brown-like colors in tha background of tha cover. Also, like with your previous release wit Doe-Doe, Final Destination Vol. 1: Boarding Pass, I feel like that’s more winter-like ‘cause of tha blue colors in tha background. But yeah, production’s soundin’ nice but you’re soundin’ catchier wit your awesome hooks and tha rhymes of a 28-year-old Wissel, here! 4.4 for tha CD rating, so far! “I know [you’re] important!!”

11. “A.B.M.” feat. Mista & Lil’ One The Champ
A five-minute collab wit Lil’ Ken on tha beat, here… Hope I’m as important as they are, ya know! >>> Beat’s aight; could be catchier… Hook ain’t up to par wit me wit this voice… Sounds too simple and you know “I’m [not] about tha money,” when it comes ta doin’ things for “money” or tha love! Got tha 1st verse from Lil’ One, here—no, wait, it’s Mista! Holy, fuck! I’m really fulla dat shit! I thought it was Lil’ One tha whole time! Anyway, what I had said was that I’m diggin’ his rhymes more than this beat and tha hook. Great job wit appreciatin’ life! Officially, Lil’ One’s on tha 2nd verse… He sounds consistent wit these rhymes and it’s betta than tha hook and tha beat fa me! Pretty crazy and consistent! Wissel’s last! How will he do? Oh, I’m diggin’ tha consistent rhymes! You don’t stop bringin’ tha heat!! I like your reference ta Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones” wit tha “halfway crooks;” nice, Wiz! Still, I ain’t a fan of “money” songs like this! My Rating: 3.7 (generous rating ‘cause of tha verses)

12. “Anymanyminemo” feat. Percy Keith
Not sure what ta say about that title, but J. Starwood’s doin’ tha beat, here! It’s 5:25 & Percy’s on tha feature!! >>> Who are your features on tha hooks on this CD? I would say random beats from online but they’re all original productions, here… With that bein’ said, this a decent hook… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and you sound slower on tha vocals, lol… Wissel comin’ through wit some nice, consistent rhymes in tha street. “Since 18, I been grown.” Your anthem must’ve been “What Happened To That Boy?” or somethin’, back when you was 18, lol! How random that was! Hearin’ you on tha 2nd verse and it’s soundin’ nice from you, once again. I like how you say, “Percy, hand me tha heater;” how cool were y’all? He tha greatest, pretty much! Have you written him, yet? “I dropped outta college, but I’m richer than my teacher;” yeah! Too bad, Wiz! I got my Master’s Degree in Production in 2012! Lol, Percy Keith even sound slower on tha vocals, here, wit tha 3rd verse… Still, A+ I’d give him! Gotta appreciate his lyrics at all times, livin’ tha life of an icon!! My Rating: 4.1

13. “Nothin’ Last 4ever”
Gotta remember dat, Wissel! At tha moment, I’m crazy about you. It’s a rare feature of mine that really only happens once with each person. I make them really important and pretty-much always have them on my mind. I think because of how you appreciate my support & how hot your “I’m Important” track iz, it’s been makin’ me addicted to supportin’ you! So yeah, wit that bein’ said, Decky On Da Track on tha track! >>> Tha hook kinda simple and this beat kinda random, but still nice… Hearin’ tha 1st verse from you and it sounds catchy as hell with tha flow and beat, here… I’ono how my true reaction fa this track’ll come out in tha end, but just know that tha quality’s on tha 1st verse, right here! It sounds like you’re enjoyin’ life on tha 2nd verse, here, soundin’ decent this time… My Rating: 3.8

14. “Let’s Go”
T.A. on tha production… >>> Not ear-catchy for tha beginning, but I feel like somethin’ special gon come outta this, as far as it bein’ considered a ‘throwback,’ lol… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and it’s decent with this decent-soundin’ beat. Only thing I mainly like, so far, iz tha warped beat sounds… Tha hook sounds kinda random from anotha random voice… Nothin’ too crazy about what’s goin’ on wit tha hook, here… Hearin’ tha 2nd verse and you’re soundin’ aight… Diggin’ your celeb status, but nothin’ ear-catchy comin’ outta you, here… You just holdin’ tha party down, pretty much, as far as how this sounds… Kinda like how tha 3rd verse starts… Tha 3rd verse, or a Mike Jones “Back Then” lil’ interlude? Literally reminded me of that as that part repeated, lol! Like how tha beat went distorted, too! My Rating: 3.6

15. “Extraordinary” feat. Djamal
I’ono how ta exactly spell tha feature’s name (“Djamal”?), so I should just use “D Jamal”? G-Motivation on tha beat, here… >>> Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice ta hear… Tha beat kinda odd and slow, but I’m feelin’ it, at some points… Lol, not my top-soundin’ track, but I’m feelin’ how you comin’ through on tha hook! Tha 2nd ½ of it was just decent, but how you sounded in tha beginning of it was nice! Hearin’ tha 2nd verse from our feature and it’s decent… I love how you say tha title on tha hook, Wissel! Lol, “wishin’ up upon a star” as tha 3rd verse comes from you, soundin’ nice; can’t complain… I like how tha ending sounded, as you kept tha positive vibe comin’ along… My Rating: 3.8

16. “G Code” feat. General Mark
G-Motivation beat; looks like this gon be good! >>> Tha beat’s pretty nice, here, fa a street anthem; good shit! Hearin’ tha hook and it’s pretty nice; good shit, Wissel! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s pretty nice fa a “G”’s anthem! Likin’ how your flow speeds up; good shit! Almost thought tha Mark dude sounded like Spitta on tha 2nd verse, here. However, it flows over nicely; can’t complain… Baton Rouge be tha home fa tha best rappers! I like how all those bitch-made people “just toilet tissue;” nice, Mark! Hearin’ you on tha 3rd verse and it’s soundin’ nice ta hear… Glad you got so much ta offer fa tha streetz! Hope you always keep it goin’!! My Rating: 4.1

17. “Do It”
Millz on tha beat… >>> I like how this sounds; sounds like an anthem on tha hook! Glad you can celebrate dem moments, Wissel! Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it’s soundin’ nice ta hear! Life of a celeb!! Nice job, holdin’ shit down! Hearin’ what you got on tha 2nd verse and you always “ballin’!” Luv your status! Just luv how you got this “one-and-only,” on tha hook, here! My Rating: 4.2

18. “No Understanding” feat. 38 Slim
London On Da Track on tha beat, here… >>> Tha beat ain’t too bad, here, as well as how you holdin’ tha hook down… It sounds like a lil’ like it on tha cool side, showin’ off, lol… Hearin’ tha 1st verse and I’m diggin’ how you “gaining weight,” here, as tha “money” goes up… Not tha biggest fan of “money” rhymes, but I’m diggin’ how you comin’ through on this, right nah… “You might not understand it ‘cause I’m from anotha planet;” that’s right, Wissel! You are “from anotha planet!” There’s only one!! Think: Your 1st name starts with a fuckin’ “X”!! That’s royal!! Tha 2nd verse ain’t too bad, here, as you’re continuin’ ta do you! Lol, did I hear, “38 Slim,” in tha background? Guess so ‘cause here’s an uncredited artist on tha 2nd verse… “Yeah, this Slim;” confirmed! Not bad with tha rhymes; could’ve been anotha Wissel verse, like I was expectin’? My Rating: 3.9

19. “Backstabbers”
T.A. on tha beat; here we go… >>> Remakin’ tha old “Backstabbers”; heard plenty of times… Almost kinda thumb-downed tha hook with that singer but it ain’t 100% bad, since I like your rhymin’… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds like your typical Wissel anthem, holdin’ shit down on this not-so-bad beat… Tha 2nd verse sounds good ta hear, too; always love hearin’ you rap! My Rating: 3.5

20. “Wissel”
ROFL?! Self-titled song? G-Motivation beat; can’t wait ta hear!! >>> Tha beat gets me excited ta enjoy this… Hearin’ you on tha 1st verse and it sounds like a jam; good shit, “Wissel,” lol! “Wissel tha wizard;” tha “W”z!! Expected a much-more catchier hook than just random talkin’… Lol, epic fail? Well, I guess, let’s keep it goin’ wit tha 2nd verse, soundin’ pretty nice wit some “Wissel” stories! “Almost got caught;” we’ve all been there in real life! Earlier this year: Five dayz before your birthday! Five! You might know tha story but if not, I’ll tell ya! Just three dayz before I added “I’m Important” to my playlist! Three!! There could’ve not’ve been an “I’m Important”, almost! I survived and that became tha greatest/most-played song I eva played!! Yes, a 3rd verse, here, soundin’ nice! Feelin’ your rhymes ova tha beat, as you know how ta hold it down! I just wish tha hook was somethin’ you’d come up with, like, “You know who I am! Wissel…! Wissel…! Wissel…! Wissel…!,” lol. You know I luv hearin’ tha name, “Wissel!” Either way, it iz what it iz! Everythang great but tha hook! My Rating: 4.0

Overall: I was really excited in tha beginning, as I was higher and it sounded better. Tha 2nd ½ had more of shit wrong with it, such as hooks, beats, or topics. Either way, I thought there were a bunch of stand-out tracks on here; great job, Wissel! Hope ta continue supportin’ you at all times! You always keep me motivated! Hope we do it big in tha future!! Keep earnin’ them “important points” wit me! Gotta make me feel important so I can keep makin’ you feel important!!
