Dubee's Discography. Never checked out his stuff until this challenge so big ups to Chad and adding a new and challenging twist to reviewing albums. Here it goes:



1. I'm Ah Hog     
2. The Word   
3. Y.B.B. Bomb   
4. Game U Feenin 4   
5. Mackin Is My Duty   
6. Mac Dre (Game I'm Spittin)     
7. That's What We Do     
8. My Thang   
9. Unda Da Trees     
10. Off A Da Heezy   
11. Reek Daddy     
12. Pit Bull VIcious   
13. Dubee, Mall & Sleep   
14. Hair Shop Hoes   


Dubee AKA Sugwolf: This is a hell of a debut album. This album is so under rated. I'm A Hog, YBB Bomb, Pit Bull Vicious. It is one of those debut albums where the rapper and the producer are in perfect sync. He was kicking some fierce pimp rhymes on this one.



1. Ain't No Curr   
2. Flip Da Script 
3. Just Another Day 
4. Billy Bad Ass 
5. Mini Mac Skills     
6. Throw Ya Hands Up   
7. Fetti Got His Brain     
8. For That $crilla   
9. Sugawolf Pimp   
10. Struck In The Game   
11. Mike And Ike

For That $crilla: Dubee does it again. Man Khayree is highly slept on as a producer. These 2 fit like a glove. Billy Bad Ass, Mini Mac Skills, Throw Ya Hands Up. And Dubee continues them pimped out rhymes.



1. Third Time Coming   
2. Body Bleeding   
3. ABC's, 123's   
4. Dangerous Prospect
5. Crucial     
6. Game     
7. Get Down   
8. Brang It   
9. Soldiers Only   
10. Circumstances     
11. Skrill     
12. Mobb Shit   
13. That's It   
14. Get Yours     
15. Cavvy R. Symphony
16. Triple C-Ya

Dangerous Prospects: He does it again, dope flow and beats. Really should be considered one of the best when it comes to the pimp rhymes. I can't believe I was sleeping on these albums. It's a dope album, and if you liked Dubee's "Young Black Brotha" (his 1st album) then you will love this one. Probably his 2nd best album.



1. Killa Whales   
2. Mini Mac (Mobbed Out Mix)   
3. I Got That   
4. 100% G Sh#t   
5. Green And Brown   
6. Ol' Macdonald   
7. I Spit That Mob   
8. Its Goin Down   
9. My Thang (Original Mix)   
10. Mexican P (Interlude)   
11. The Dank Man (Instrumental)

100% G-Shit: A couple remixes on this one and a bit shorter then his other albums, but dope nonetheless. If you have a system, your system will fall in love with this album. Bass and reverb is insane on many tracks on here.



1. Intro   
2. You Can't Tell Me Sh!t   
3. It Don't Stop     
4. Off Yo Lips     
5. I Like A Bitch     
6. England Shake (Your Ahss)   
7. Shake Yo Gludious     
8. Aye Bitch 
9. No Weed? (Skit)   
10. I Need   
11. Bitches     
12. Pledge Allegiance To The Game     
13. It's Like That   
14. Can You See Me Lord?     
15. It's The Crest   
16. Casual     
17. I Yie Yie   
18. All Sav'd Out     
19. Play The Game   
20. Can't F#ck Wit Me     
21. Outro   
22. Bonus Track 1

Turf Matic: This album was released on Mac Dre's label. Only 1 track from Khayree  :(, and Sean T and other handled the production. Rhymes were not as sharp as on his previous albums, subject matter really did not change but it just did not measure up with his other ones. Not a bad album but not great either. Beats were a little weak at times too.



 1. Understand Me 
   2. Game To Be Sold   
   3. The Dankman   
   4. A-16
   5. Crooked Letter Fac   
   6. Do Your Rap Over (Interlude)   
   7. Scurrvy   
   8. Let Loose   
   9. North Pole 
 10. Throwin Bottles   
 11. O's & Keys 
 12. What Happened?   
 13. Baylife (Instrumental)


Why Change Now: Was released by Dubee in 2005 w/out the crazy beats, etc. It was ehh compared to his earlier stuff. A couple of bangers but for the most part it was average at best.



   1. Thizztro   
   2. Who I Am?   
   3. D-Boy Saucy   
   4. Skit 
   5. Hey B*tch Sequel 
   6. Click Clack   
   7. I'm A Gangsta   
   8. Thizz For Life 
   9. Get Paypa   
 10. Skit   
 11. Thizz I Iz   
 12. Throw My T'z Up   
 13. Fly Guy   
 14. Mic Check (Blast In Yo Face)   
 15. Skit 
 16. Thizz Dancin'
 17. What Thizz It?!   
 18. D-Boy 
 19. Da Crest   
 20. On Call   
 21. Thizz How We Eat   
 22. Da End


Last Of A Thizzin Breed: I could not get into this album. The whole Thizz/Hyphy sound just does not fit Dubee's smooth, pimp rhymes. Released earlier this year, this is easily his worst album. Sounds very forced and rushed to capitalize on the whole Bay/Hyphy movement and keeping Mac Dre's movement alive. Good to do in memory, not musically for Dubee.

Conclusion: I really enjoyed his discography. Keeps it simple topic wise, pimpin, repping your hood, smoking, etc. The chemistry between him and Khayree is exceptional. At times his career kind of reminds me of Snoop's and Dre. When you have a good combo of mc and producer like that people gravitate to it. But it seemed like the later albums without Khayree seemed to tail off. Definitely one of the better catalogs from the Bay overall. Stay tuned for the next challenge.

I definitely recommend checking out his first 3. His first album is a borderline personal classic for me.

Don't Waste Time Hating on Kurupt just because he gets the Appreciation that you think YOUR favorite artist deserves. You should try being more Positive about Life and Post about things that YOU LIKE instead of Whining Like a BITCH. Convert All That Hate into Positive Energy to Promote YOUR # 1 Artist.

-Khayree did not produce anything on Dubee's 2nd album,at least according to credits in the booklet.
producer credits;
-1 hungry man 4 I gotta eat,ferg and Dr. Klunk Funk

Yep,a personal classic.
His voice,his flow,the beats... damn,it match so well.
Khayree and Dubee = lethal combo,so lethal it can easily be compared Dre and Snoop´s chemistry.

It's not produced by Khayree,although the beats sound pretty similar to Khayree´s;

Anyway,the beats is dope but it's like there ain't "no chemistry" between the vocals and the beats.  :P

I find this album a little strange.  :P
The beats is banging,but it's a little repetitive and don't fit Dubee that well.

As you said this album;

is easily his worst album.
There's a couple of dope beats on the album,but the Hyphy shit don't fit Dubee at all.  :P
1.5 out of 5


Conclusion:
I really enjoyed his discography.
Keeps it simple topic wise, pimpin, repping your hood, smoking, etc.

The chemistry between him and Khayree is exceptional.
At times his career kind of reminds me of Snoop's and Dre.
When you have a good combo of MC and producer like that people gravitate to it.
But it seemed like the later albums without Khayree seemed to tail off.

Definitely one of the better catalogs from the Bay overall.

Well,my conclusion is pretty much the same as yours.
But I'm a little harder critic than you,so I don't let them get away that easy  :P ;) :laugh:.
Khayree is one of my all time favorite producers,much like Dre the albums Khayree produce top to bottom is flawless.
I would love to see these two team up again for another album.

My overall rating of Dubee´s catalog;

3.5 out of 5

AKA Sugawolf is fuckin classic. Any G-Funk fan needs to check this out no questions asked. The sweet part about this album is the way Khayree had each track transitioning into the next. Each song blends into the next. Not necessarily like a DJ mixtape though. You have to peep it to know what I mean. There was a lot of work put into this album and it shows. This is easily my favorite YBB release. I seriously cannot stress enough how dope this album is though lol. Please check it out if you have not.

Wow a complete Dubee discography review w/ no mention of "My Thang" hands down his best song (Remix is better imo).  Killa Whales, 100% G Shit, The Dank Man (Instrumental), Mac Dre (Game I'm Spittin'), Sugawolf Pimp, all should also get mentioned when reviewing Dubee's discography.

My Thang, Mackin is My Duty, Pitbull Vicious, YBB Bomb r the best on his first one. I really got into his first album.

Every album album that Khayree produces top to bottom is like that.
It´s a shame people sleep on him.  :-\
