Back 2 Da Basics
"U A Gangsta Rite" is another heater creatively produced and Yo Gotti just delivers that fire. The album falls low on tracks like "Spend It Cuz We Got It," which features Gotti's boy All-Star and a lackluster beat from Carlos Broady. "Cold Game" is average too; nice beat, but Gotti's bars just don't ride the beat and drowns along. Back 2 Da Basics comes back to life on the Carlos Broady-produced "Gangsta Party." Biggie's one time producer laced up this track, which features verses from 8 Ball and UGK's Bun B. Scott Storch did the job too on "That's What They Made it Foe." It's crazy how Gotti spits "Went from a boxed chevy to a boxed Porsche/from a hundred dollar beat to Scott Storch." Gotti does it again on "25 to Life," which seems like a "don't-go-to-jail" anthem.
The slump returns on the album with weak flows on tracks like "Shawty Violating" and "That's not Yo Bitch." Bangers do make a comeback on "I'm a Thug" and "We gonna be Alright." "Warrior's" a heater too, along with the Jazze Pha-assisted "A Part of Thugs." Back 2 da basics is a good album and I respect Yo Gott for his effort in this project. Not bad at all; so for those who not familiar, look-out for ya boy Yoooo Goooottttttiii!
