Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Lil Boosie & Hurricane
Title: Bad Azz Hurricane
Label: Asylum Records

For a song that's only three minutes long to begin with, it's a shame that Lil Boosie and Hurricane waste the first 20 seconds with non-instrumental machismo that would have been more interesting to a beat. Speaking of beats, producer Gus (no first name or last name - just GUS) is competent here but by no means mind-blowing. His track treads the careful line between bounce, club and crunk without firmly commiting to any of them - keeping the melody to a few notes while adding enough extra layers of keyboard orchestration to keep it from becoming totally stale. The "money thang" here is nothing new though, nor is bragging about "canary and blue diamonds on me." Does anyone think there's a significant portion of today's "swagger" aritsts who are grossly out of touch with the real economy? If not they're just playing the stereotypical role the audience expects regardless of whether they have the wealth they're bragging on. Of the two featured here only Boosie has shown the potential to say and do more, but by sharing a track with Mr. Ay Bay Bay he seems to have been dragged down to the latter's mediocre and cliched level.
