Chad Vader's review of Devin's 2008 releases

Smoke Sessions, Vol. 1 Released: April 1, 2008

credits large image;

I bumped the hell out of this when it dropped,all original production on this mix-tape/street album so you might as well just call it a album  :P ;).
Shit is fire from start to end... Searching got be one of my favorite tracks in 2008.
Rating; 4/5


Landing Gear Released: October 7, 2008


A good album but a couple of below average tracks drags down the overall rating.
Rating; 3/5


Hi Life Released: October 7, 2008

credits large image;

Although this album clearly is leftover tracks Rap-A-Lot has thrown together,shit holds high quality all the way through.
No need to break down each track,all is above average.. no skipping.  ;)
Rating; 4/5

I haven't listened to Smoke Sessions yet but I agree with you. I like that "leftover"-album a lil bit more than Landing Gear. Although I would give them 3,5 and 4.  ;)

I consider it a "slow" album  :P the style is pretty similar to Genacide and One GudCide. You know I love that style  ;)

ah i see what you mean ;)

yeah i know  ;)

DMG ..stood out on the FaceMob albums..Devin was eh..on em...like out of his element...

they had another called silence..that hoe jammed



Silence is more like a DMG solo album. (Devin is not on it)...
I agree that Devin is out of his element on some of the tracks (the hardcore ones),but he kills the slow ones.


thought the same..dmg goes hard...rap-a-lot crazy for not keepin him in the mix..him,big mike, willie d and 3-2 the only ones that was on the roster that useta eat everybodies favorite texas rapper for lunch everytime they got a verse from em...

I actually believe it's leftover tracks from DMG´s Black Roulette... and that Rap-A-Lot just slapped on the FaceMob name.  :P

That's when a lot of people took notice of him.
Before that I always had to explain who Devin was....

Quote
-cats was like,Devin? Who?
-You know the funny cat with "Pussy is dope" and "Fa´Sho".....
-ahhh him
5 minutes later they forgot the name  :P :-\

 :P  :eh:

The Dude is a classic, easily his best  8)

as far as the best one from this year I'd go with Landing Gear

devin to me is in the same boat w 8ball n mjg with me... its always like 2-3 songs i like off bat..but i never bother to play their shit ever for awhile..

then i interstate skate wit it in the deck...n what was 2-3 songs i liked...turn into enjoyin the whole album...


n hi-life i cant force myself to like that album...kuz it has a fucked up version of the song alchemist produced..n when it dropped i was in washington state at the time..at fye..

i picked up all his shit again..since i was gone be up there for awhile..i aint have no music on me...as im grabbin everything ..what i thought was a white dude said u forgot one n reached around me n put that hi-life shit on top of everything...

i was like ionwan that bullshit mayne...its garbage..then the dude was like shit u got everything else of the dude might as well pick this up too..i turned around n it was devin n rob quest laughin...n devin was like i wouldnt buy the shit neither n i wrote some of the songs..its all good my last check anyway..lol

til this day i cant see how people like hi-life over landin gear ..yo mind > the entire hi-life album

the replay factor is up there with the previous devin albums
