Captain Backslap is back! The producer/rapper (he says he's "not
an MC `cause I'm too rich to fit in that category) comes through dropping
his misogynistic and humorous lyrics over his self-produced beats.
The album starts off with Zone hooking up with his intern, and this
shit is hilarious. The cat who claims to be from the planet "Bitch
Please" goes through what you shouldn't do if you want to stay
cool with Zone on "The Commandments." His lyrics are funny
as hell, and someone is bound to take offense at the 2003 Bobby Brown.
The lead single, "Eatadicup," which features Celph Titled,
who gets his "rocks off watching fat girls do jumping jacks,"
has the duo offending any and everyone. "5-Star Hooptie" is
a dope track about the Zone's car, where he rhymes "put your hand
on the nob is the only way you'll be feelin' the bass." "Prima
Donna," which features Copywrite, has Copy spitting battle rhymes
while J-Zone says he's too good to battle.
"Chump Change," which is also going to appear on L.A. radio
legend Mike Nardone's "We Came From Beyond Volume Two," is
one of the funniest tracks where the Zone takes being cheap to a whole
new level, where he rhymes about breaking up with girls around Christmas
and and on Thanksgiving he's eating "turkey-flavored bugles."
How many MC's, yes, MC's, would rhyme "F*&@ HBO and Cinemax,
I rent my tapes from the library, dub `em and bring em back?"
West Coast legends J-Ro and King T come through on "Choir Practice."
It's cool to hear these cats over a J-Zone beat. The Zone is still rhyming
about how he treats his women and how cheap he is, but he keeps finding
other ways to say it so it doesn't get boring. The skits are crazy.
"Le Chateau Blanc" is the funniest skit on the album. You
gotta hear that, you'll definitely be laughing by the time this is over.
J-Zone, who is always talking about his love for the "ig'nant rap"
didn't have any collaborations with Suga Free, C-Bo, or anyone on the
Rap-A-Lot label. Hopefully in the future they can work together_
The Old Maid Billionaire is taking Hip Hop and having fun with it. While
most cats take themselves too seriously and are always frowning in every
press picture, J-Zone rhymes about wearing fake chains and White Castle.
His original sense of humor and personality is needed in Hip Hop. So
if you're tired of all the drama in the game, buy this album and make
the Zone rich.
