“smart swagger song, really like the lyrics and beat to the song, reminds me of 50 cent a lot, could even be his material, quality beat, the change of singers is great to as you get a good variety of voices to listen to, great song.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I like the story at the start of the song as it allows you to really get into the song from the very beginning. I am not a real fan of rapping all through out a song but it worked well or this particular song. The lyrics were good and I imagine this could connect with its listeners. It could be a hit in the hip hop/rap world as long as the promotion was done right for the music. Even the ending for the song, I feel worked well which all helps add to the possibility of its success in being released.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I liked the introduction to the start of the song because it helped me to define the genre of music that I was listening to. I liked the vocals of the rapper, the lyrics were clear and the rhythm was consistent. The flow was consistent throughout the entire track, the chorus and verses were clearly defined. I also like the sound of the other artists that collaborated on this track.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“reminds me of some wu tang clan. i love it already. kinda sounds like a young see-lo. the lyrics that are being used are serene and smooth. you can see the hard work that was put into the production. the beat is very retro and old school sounding. why arent these people famous?? this is some REAL hip hop. once again i love this tune. this will definately something i will buy and support. very chill rap, not like the garbage that is put on the radio nowadays. the introduction that was played was a nice touch. the way it ended was also a nice addition.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“The introduction is purely vocals, which is a very different and interesting type of intro. It leads nicely into the verse, with a very minimalistic backing music putting most of the focus on the lyrical content. The rapper is talented. However it is obvious the rapper has a lot of skill. The lyrical content is very artistic and full of different writing styles. It is obvious that a lot of work has been put into the song writing as it is very strong and artistically talented. even without the production this song would still do well commercially.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“An interesting hip hop track that paints a scene of crime and violence to a very laid back jazz loop. Various sounds and ambiance sweep in and out the mix and create an interesting atmosphere. A selection of well trained rappers lay down lyrics that come across as emotional and genuine. The sounds all sit well in the mix and the track develops well. This should appeal to fans of hip hop and good music.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“A weird way to start the song but it works nd easily slips into the track. this song just oozes cool all over it. the raps compliment the chous and backing beats a track jay-z would easily be jealous he didnt come up with this. a great way to start a party and to reminise about the night before.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I like the old school style, and the beat and instrumental sounds different than everything else out there. the vocals match well and the rythm of them are perfect. I don't think there's really anything to change.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“My first impression of the song was what the heck is this. After I got 20 seconds in I got a good impression of Biggie.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“IS SOUNDS LIKE OLD HIP HOP. THIS IS A SONG I COULD LISTEN TO YEAR ROUND. THE RAP STYLE WAS A GOOD COMBINATIO. IT WOULD APPEAL TO URBAN AND YOUNGER CROWD. THE BEAT IS STEADY. IT HAS A GOOD FLOW. I WOULD REQUEST IT TO BE PLAYED.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Probably the best hip hop I've heard on here so far. The beat 's pretty good, the lyrics and flow are dope, the production's good. The talking/noises in the background are cool, and wish they played more during the song to add depth. It ends kind of abruptly. It hasn't got a mainstream sound (so I'm not sure how commercially viable it is), but it 's not like the artists were going for that.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“The intro is a pensive, kinda spooky conversation. It creates a cool intensity and tension that carries into the rap, once it starts. The song grooves really nicely without getting too repetitive. The lyrics flow really well, and there are some good rhymes and phrases without trying to be too crazy. A really well-balanced song.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“a little different from others I have heard. Nice rap rhythm with really upbeat music choice, all rapers are consistent and strong.Lyrics are unique. great balance of the rapping and music, nice background affects adds life to the song.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Unique intro, with great rhythm and beat. Rapper has an appealing voice and does good at rapping. Lyrics are good. Good quality rapping style. Good beat to this piece with the words and tune. Conviction, strong, and confident. Balanced, blended good. Varied, full, solid, original.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“This instrumental is simple, but at the same time very tasteful and perfectly shaped. I loved it. The vocal hook is interesting, and the vocal performance is dynamic and skillful. This guy is talented and he puts in one very attractive and smooth performance. His rhymes are creative and tasteful. The second verse is also quality and attractive. This is real hip hop, it has soul, taste and it sounds perfect in every music element. Outstanding.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I enjoy the beat a lot. The drums tie all the instrumentals together very nice. The vocals are very nice as well, his voice is very relaxing. I real like the lyrics "get you money right " thats very catchy and already stuck in my head. The group seems to have very good harmony between themselves and sounds amazing vocals and lyrically together.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I loved the hook tho. The beat was good, with it 's old school drum kit and heavy, simplistic piano. And the B side song was cool too. Sounded like Mos Def at first. Again old school kicks and snare with a simple piano melody. Slightly above average track I would say. They were definitely going for some type of style in the song and they got it.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Has a fresh freestyle flow sound in my opinion. The beat is cool, sounds how hip hop should sound. I love the switch in the middle of the track, the drums are a great accent to to track along with the sampling, gives it that underground vibe.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“The intro is short and to the point. The lyrical value is strong. The rhymes are good. The artists are off beat. The instrumental is consistent. I love the old school hip-hop style. The chorus is repetitive. The chorus is catchy. I like the bass in the song. The song is imaginative. I like the variety of sound. The song is very balanced and interesting. The production of the song is outstanding. I really think the song has a lot of potential and originality. I love the ending. The ending has a unique style. I think the writing of the song is perfection.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“i thought that it was pretty sounding and inspirational. The artist should make more music like this. it sounded acoustic and very deep to the heart kind of music. i think that the artist should make a lot more songs like this. the music touched me deep and that 's what i really liked about it. it was very beautiful and inspirational to me. i honestly enjoyed it.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I like this hip-hop track. I feel like it is a bit dumbed down because it is talking about getting money but I also know money is a ruling thing in the world unfortunately. HOWEVER, I like the sound of this hip-hop track. The voice and rhymes are great. I like that he talks about paradox. The drum and bass lines and flow reminds me of 90s hip-hop a bit. Love it!”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“The rapping is excellent. I love the way the beat and the tune makes the music more elegant. I lyrics are inspirational and makes sense. The use of the bass and drums adds just a simple but pure background beat. The rappers sound very professional and experienced and should be heard on the radio. The length is nicely filled. The voclas are clear and easy to listen too. I say they did a pretty good job.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I like the classic rap beat and the old school hip hop feel.I like his lyrics great comparisons and metaphors to attract the ear of the audience.Nice fluency and proficiency in his rap.I like the pop of the beat in parts of explosion.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“An awesome hip hop style song indeed.The beat is there and the lyrics match the vocals and pop.Sounds a little like a composition from the 80s.I enjoy all aspects of this song or jam.Very nice to hear.Not my typical genre but I like this one.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Ah the early 90's. Nostalgic at its best. The DJ beat in the background of the rap artist is such a vivid sound. Although its repetitive for the most part, (excluding the lyrics) is just perfect. The style is definitely there. More than just there, it 's in you face. Which is exactly what I like to hear from old school.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Someone owns an 808 set. The techno beat moves right along and before you've start to move to the infectious beat the pop style first rapper begans his ascent, very inviting ala run dmc. This is a throw back to the early days of rap, mid to late eighties. The second rapper is more jagged in your face down right disrespecting in a gangster swag type of style. Plenty of iconic loops course threw this joint. At the end we are treated to movie trailer it seems of audio sample.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“The beat keeps you guessing about what 's gonna come next and the rapper keeps flowing seamlessly from one verse into the next. The beat sounds like something futuristic and it 's nothing like Ive ever heard before.Songs like this one are a pleasure to listen to because you don't hear them very often any more.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“This song is banging. I will like to have the song for myself. Everything about this song is great to me. How can I purchase this song. That is what everybody will say when they hear this song. They lyrics is banging and the beat. Great job.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“The instrumental is quality and atmospheric. The beat is amazing, I loved the shape and how it is balanced with the other instrumental accompaniments. This vocal is talented, he puts in one amazingly smooth and dynamic performance that entertained me. Lyrically he is as well very talented, his rhymes are creative and clever. This is real hip hop, it has soul and taste and that is why I think it will be respected and loved by the hip hop fans.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“A very Interesting, powerful, beautiful and interesting track. Very soothing and calm song. A true song that mixes with all types of life. a song that will mke you shiver and soo reaxed so you can get rid of the stresses of life. powerul and beautiful lyrics which makes your puse build and sets your heart going. a really well put together piece a great hip hoptrack.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“interesting fusion of numerous genres early on in the track. steady lyrical rhythm combined with technologically infused backing music, makes for a track which becomes enjoyable after a few listens. combines elements of hip hop and contemporary electronic, and will therefore likely attract fans from both genres.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Awesome beat! The track is smooth. Background melody makes the track fierce. The lyrics are too powerful. Makes you just want to bob your head. This track sounds strong like something Common would do. Should make it to the top!”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Oh boy! The song had a lot of interesting aspects to it. In the beginning, the song started off smooth and slow. It was ambient and calming. Then, the track continues to progress in a ingenious way using the percussions in the background. The drums were really well mastered and mixed into the track. Getting at the arrangement of the track, the format is pretty standard. Great set!”

“ Polar Showcase Releases: #4 Trump & Associates – “Count Fleet” (Produced by Ta’Raach) [Official Video] August 29, 2012 POLAR ENT SHOW CASE AT 83 GALLERY SEPT 1ST SHOW STARTS AT 7PM So we are three days away until the “First Ever Polar Entertainment Showcase” and to fuel the excitement Polar Records has decided to release a song everyday leading up to September 1st!!! The fourth song is the introductory single for TRUMP & ASSOCIATES. Trump is the childhood rap group of label owner, J RAWLS. The first single “Count Fleet” is from their upcoming mix tape and is produced by Ta’Raach.”

“The beginning was interesting. I always like to hear talking in the beginning of tracks. The background and beat was different and unique, not something that you'll hear someone else. It sounds a bit like a tupac song. The lyrics were relatable and had an interesting story to it. The artists knew exactly how to rhyme with the talent of flowing perfectly with the beat and background. if you listen to the words you'll be attracted to it. Definitely something I can see being played in someone's car or even in a clip during a movie. Kind of reminded me of the battles in 8 Mile.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Now we have something interesting. Laid back backing track, and shuffling drum beat and breaks backs up a forceful style of rapping. This is great and reminds me of Mosdef, Amplive, and dare I say it Gangstarr. This is big league hip hop. Well crafted and intelligent. I'm enjoying this, and would love to hear the rest of the album. The film samples add to the song and give it the mean edge that goes with the vocal delivery. Really enjoyed and respected this one.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Vigorous rapping. Bravura! The lyrics sparkle and were unpredictably refreshing. Liked there was a number of voices that all added to the overall tempo. The electric keyboard added to the decisive and colorful drama. Felt I was in the room with the musicians as they were be broadly be bopping.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I like that this song starts out very differently. The musical aspect of it starts after the introduction. People are talking in the introduction. You don't see this happen often in a song. The key to a great song is difference. The things that I look for in a great song are the differences. The people talking in the introduction rather than instruments are very different. The talking does not take away from the song. Instruments will show up after they talk.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“Cool intro with that audio clip. Really like the melody of the song with the trumpet since it makes it sound a little bit old school. The rapping flows along with the beat really good and there are a lot of good elements in the song such as good mixing and the nice, not too complex beat in the back. This is something I hear breaking through hip-hop radio for sure given the opportunity to push it. Good chance to get big for sure!”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I love the beat of this hip-hop song. So far the dude's voice is good to listen to as well. Nice use of synthesizers! Sounds like a fun song and I think it would sound good in the club. It has an upbeat sound yet also sounds chill. Easily radio ready. The rhymes are also on point. Keeps my attention and just an overall fun track!”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“As soon as it started I was hooked. Really liked the intro and the immediate vocals coming in. Sounds very old school, which is awesome. I like the rhythm of the snare (claps) and the piano in the background. The flow is good and is easy to listen to as it sounds quite soft however it sounds like the vocalist is still trying to get a message across. I like the scratches on the record too. Lyrics are good.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“electro hip hop here we go! This is a refreshing change to the normal delivery of hip hop in the and around these days. This is a real tribute back to what started it all back in the day. Im not sure how it translates today, but it ticks all the classic hip hopp and break beat boxes. simple beats and cuts with confident vocal delivery over the top of it. Some fast battling going on here. Unfortunatley it may only appear to a niche market, and not get the appreciation it deserves.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“THis record is real hip hop in its form here. i feel that your drums are strait up 808s with allot of power. You have this mobb deep nas sort of 90s groove. Your music really comes on very freash and exciting with great rythem. You music has allot ideas in its lyrics. You seem to be able to flow on beat perfectly here and i love that. Your music is very simple and sticks to the basics. I love the songs hook its quite appealing and is very memerable in my point of view.”

“The beat and instrumental has a unique and uncommon sound. The lyrics are amusing. The lyrics makes me think. I really like the tone of the artists voices. I like the rhythm of the song. The rhymes are excellent. I love the poetic hip-hop style. I really love the way the song contains so many different sounds. I really love the weird and creepy noises in the song. The song is really wonderful.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I like the tambourine sounds on this track and the drum line. The rapper actually has talent which seems to be hard these days since everyone thinks they're a rapper! Has an old school feel.”

Reverbnation Crowd Review

“I think that this sounds is totally different. The first few measures of the intro are totally something new to me. It sounds unlike things I'm used to hearing which I think is a huge plus to the artist. The beat is so unique. The use of several synthetic sounds as the instrumental parts, the earthy drum. It all flows very well. The artist 's voice is totally different too, it 's very unique.”
