Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Juvenile f/ Dorrough, Kangol Slim, Shawty Lo
Title: We Be Getting Money
Label: Koch Records

At first I was worried this was a Shawty Lo song, because for the first 28 seconds the beat sounded like something he'd rap on and I could hear him going YEAHHH. Thankfully this self-produced Juvenile song changes up before he raps the first verse and takes on a more New Orleans flavor with funky horns and a heavy bottom. "Go 'head and hate you gon' run into what I carry homey/I'm at the plate with the bat, I'm doin it Barry homey." No doubt you are Juve, so why you needed to share this song with Lo is a mystery. His lack of substance is all the more stunning when following the much deeper voiced and much more lyrically stacked Juvenile on the track. Dorrough's "I'm stuntin like a pimp, with a bitch that please/From the hood so I'll take a bitch to Mickey D's" nearly steals the show though, and that's alright, because it means two thirds of the verses work. Good song overall.
