Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: NEPHEWBLAQ f/ Rock & Toni
Title: Hey Shawty
Label: Loudmouf Records

The hype for this single reads "All DJ's need this track!" I don't concur. To be fair there's nothing horrible about NEPHEWBLAQ's vocal tone, but there's nothing remarkable about his lyrics either. "She got a nickname, they call her strawberry/I bet she taste like a strawberry shortcake/She got a pimp sayin' things that he don't normally say/We can chill and be together like Beyonce and Jay." Unless I missed something in those four bars, NEPHEW strung together two lines that didn't rhyme then tried so hard to find an analogy to his "Shawty" that his rap went past one measure of the beat into the next. Not only did the rap need more thought, the music quickly becomes annoying as it's a descending series of four notes looped ad infinitum. The singer on the hook seems marginally talented but in the end the whole presentation is a wash. I don't see patrons running up and demanding this track from DJ's any time soon.
