Hell Rell For The Hell Of It [review]

Wow OK that cover scares the shit out of me. Well, no, it's just fucking ignorant. But then again, this is Ruger Rell we're speakin' of. Dipset all day? I'd sure hope not...

He keeps saying he doesn't do this for the money or the fame, but then talks about wanting to buy a yacht and all this other bullshit. Nigga, please, you're in this trying to get paid. That's why you're on Koch - it's them illusions, nigga.

"Do It For The Hustlers"
OK this beat is boring. He sounds too much like Killa Cam on this one, which isn't exactly a good thing. And I'm already starting to not believe him. At all.

This beat sounds like my son made it. He can't speak yet. I hear that lil Milk Dee in the beat. If Rell and JR Writer are the future of Dipset, I see Dipset ending... tomorrow. And what was up with that apple juice/pee pee line? Too much of that gurple?

"Deep In Love"
I hate when these dudes try to act so hard, then talking about loving their niggas. This beat would have been cool 5 years ago. Wake me when it's over.

"You Can Count On Me"
Straight G shit? "Fuck with me"? How many "I sell drugs b/c my block is fucked up" tracks do I need to hear? Even worse, dude doesn't sound emotional at all. Next.

"Streets Gonna Love Me"
A lot of "me" talk on this disc, no? I do like that beat though - nice use of the vocal sample, but the chorus is very predictable. And who the fuck is truly trying to "die" for the streets?

"Life In The Ghetto"
I'm a sucker for piano melodies. I like this track, surprisingly. The 2nd verse really gets deep into the real grimey side of the hood. A lil too much bullshit about himself when he should be sticking to the topic, but dude rides the beat well. That "get ready for dick and some balls" line sounds odd.

"Hardest Out" (ft. Styles P)
Ghost just trying to get a check off this one. He completely murked Rell on this one. Doesn't even sound like he was in the studio during his rhymes. And who said Rell was one of the hardest rappers out?

"You Know What It Is" (ft. Young Dro)
I never thought I'd be saying this: Young Dro murks Rell on this one! I like how they actually split up the 3rd verse. This beat is bananas though - I could listen to this all day.

"Show Off"
Worst beat on the disc so far. Synth-heavy bullshit. Whomever makes beats like this needs to be shot.

"I'm The Shit" (ft. Cam'ron)
"I'm the shit man/you see these flies flyin' 'round me?" Huh? This beat is vintage Dipset, though: that hi-hat heavy, epic sounding sample shit. Crazy boom-bap. I really like Rell's first verse; the whole Range Rover/Phantom shit at the end makes me smile. Is Cam talking about his IBS on his verse?

"Respect Me" (ft. JR Writer)
I get tired of niggas talkin' about money like they truly blow their noses with dollar bills, be forreal. JR kind of sounds like Papoose, for good or ill.

"I Shall Proceed (Rep The Set)"
Yawn. Why bastardize a Roots chorus? He freaks some old school sounds in the beat though; I'm on the fence with this one.

"Always Wanted To Be A Gangsta"
*Sigh* Another waste of time.

"Where You From" (ft. Juelz Santana)
This beat is kind of wild. I like the bounce to it, and it switches up nicely, too. "This Rap Ramadan/what you niggas go hungry". ROFL! How is Santana only doing the chorus?!?

"I Ain't Playin' Wit 'Em"
Um... OK!? I'm glad this is over.

What a waste of time. I don't have much good to say about this CD. The cover is the best part, and it sucks. I mean I couldn't have expected much, right?

rock the dub gives Hell Rell's For The Hell Of It 2 out of 5 stars. Nonsense beats, nonsense rhymes; Dipset no way.

how the hell is this a 4 out of 5? name some other 4 out of 5 albums, then break down how this Hell Rell nonsense can compare?

shit, Rell ain't even come out with a 4 out of 5 out his own crew, let alone the Hip-Hop scene in general.
