DPrince-frenzy-tracklist

 

This is the long awaited album of mavin record artiste D’prince. An artiste who has given us listeners some pretty dope tracks(L: and when we say dope,we mean danceable) in the past from the likes of “Jonzing world”, “Give it to me “, “Take Banana”… This is an album composed to induce a feeling of frenzy to anyone who listens, and this is my view on this album.

Bad Girls

“Don’t Hold me, ok ok ok ok ok ok”

“I dey pop, I’m not a pauper

Drinks flying around like a chopper”

Well, this track is the intro track, he’s trying signal all the bad girls to come on over so that they can get the party started. This track isn’t worth it, so I’ll just skip right next to the next.

Journey of a thousand miles ft. Donjazzy and Wande

Coal

 

“Night would come but day must break

There’s nobody above mistake

See for this life na give and take

That’s why I’m grateful for every breath I take”

Now, this is definitely better than the first track. It’s a inspirational song featuring his label mate Wande Coal who does his best by delivering a nice hook to it. It’s a nice composition thanks to you know who, Donjazzy himself but strangely this song doesn’t fit into this album, it just seems so outta place, this should be under a compilation album or something.

 

Goody Bag

“ what’s your selling point

Do you know your selling point

You gats to know your selling point

Oya identify your selling point”

Signature track from D’Prince, it has his name written all over it. This is what you would expect from him and he did not disappoint. With unmistakable stupid lyrics, an awesome instrumental to dance to, you’ll probably end up asking the question “What’s your selling point”. It’s one of the plausible hit tracks off the album. If you’re a D’Prince fan you’ll definitely love this one.

 

Amina ft. Dr Sid

“see me see me see this sisi go put me for trouble o

Girls of nowadays go put me for trouble eh ya

Amina come party she forget her pant mo gbe!

Even some girls for here don comot their pant troway” – D’Prince

 

“Are you blind abi you know say na me you dey find o

You can’t find another man we go fi handle your behind o

Omoge for your mind o you be one of a kind o “ – Dr Sid

Sometimes it’s difficult to know when Donjazzy goes wrong with a beat but this isn’t one of them. The beat is on point. The song captures a typical party situation where you find some girls with what could pass as underwear or even none at all and what most guys will make of the situation, you know. It’s a fun track, enjoy dancing to it.

Africa Zumba

“give me the hanky, I want to clean my face

No hanky panky dance like say you dey craze”

In the midst of the dance crazes that are imminent all around us from the azonto to ethigi and the likes, D’prince decides to add his own spice to the big pot. So yeah it’s a dance track and I hope there’s a cool dance to go with it but if not, I’ll just do the azonto.

 

Painting the town ft. Wizkid

“hopping on a G6

My swag is futuristic

Damn she’s feeling freaky she be licking off her lipstick” –D’Prince

“I’m that guy that’s painting the whole town red

I’m killing all the motherfuckas

And I descent what they say I’m making the shake down

We sending down the rain” – WizKid

As a Wizkid fan, I was expecting some wild out club rocking dope track but what I got was a FAIL!

The two of them just played the song out like some childish game, like there was no effort on this one and it was a waste of a very good beat , I’m disappointed with this.

wtf-is-this-shit

Carry it up ft Timaya

“if you see fine girl with that booty make you tell am o

She can’t just stand there looking she must to use am o” – D’Prince

“me I want you from behind

I don’t care the way you will wind” – Timaya

damn-booty

I guess no album of this nature would be complete without a song about the YANSH!! And it features mister “shake ur bum bum” so you know what this is about already.

Believe

”for this life wey we dey we must believe in something

Make hin no be like sayyou don’t believe in nothing

Just like R Kelly I believe I can fly

Spread my wings so wide fly up into the sky”

In the general theme of the album, this is not a bad addition at all. It isn’t a noteworthy song but it has a nice vibe to it, I guess it wasn’t a bad idea.

Call Police

“smoke igbo, call mopol, wheel barrow

Smoke igbo, say na rozay

Rozay bawo”…

“see all of them red eye

Dem don dey claim Apollo

I’m waiting for the mopol” – D’Prince

police_fight

There’s no great party or in this case, no frenzy without good weed and D’Prince knows this!

For a change, his lyrics are quite on point with the idea of the song and also pretty funny.

This is definitely one for them boys, you know youselves.

Real G ft. M.I

“ I don’t go shopping , I fucking blow the fucking mall away

Fucking with royalty, the fucking prince of the modern day

My mind is like on song, body like eni suru

These niggas is acting, all these niggas is francis duru” – D’Prince

Pause, Lmao

“plus I’m a big G, I’m talking capital

Since I enter industry these rappers on sabbatical

We off the chain we set the cain on loose dawg

You niggas are like apple, you need new Jobs” – M.I

It’s kinda sad but also funny that D’Prince hasn’t quite come to the full reality that he is failure when it comes to rapping. But you have to give him some credit for being to get someone like M.I on this track. And thanks to M.I for being able to salvage something from this, Kudos! To him for doing what he does best.

Overdosing and Jonzing ft. Young Breed

“bitches they fall in love

When I fall in clubs

I order so much rozay they think he in the fucking club” – Yung Breed

“thank god for the cash flow we’re stunting on these ass holes

We’re in business this is real talk, I’m talking shipments, cargoes” – D’Prince

I really don’t know how to call this one but I put it as D’Prince’s version of Meek Mill’s “young and getting it” This track is about nothing else but the coke and fits just right on this album, I mean this is a frenzy riiiight.

The track features young breed of the Triple C’s a group founded by Rick Ross, so you’ll hear that chic say “maybach music”. Never knew he was a rapper, though he was a MMG male groupie but lo and behold, he raps and he was damn good considering the kinda person he was working with.

I have nothing to say on this one, I was almost like this all through.

Ife ft Tiwa Savage

“my ex girl was something

But I no go lie you be something else

You fine pass my compliments

Baby you’re the best for me “ – D’Prince

“my fears are gone away

My baby is here to stay

I’m thanking God above

Cos I’m the one he loves” – Tiwa Savage

Tiwa-3

I like love songs to be honest #NoHomo and this is a cool jam coming from D’Prince thanks to Donjazzy. It features label mate and awesome singer Tiwa Savage who does pretty well on it even though she didn’t quite meet up to expectations. I guess they added this song just to complete the album and it’s not a bad song but just why would you wanna talk about love at a frenzy? Are you a learner!?!!

By Myself

“you wish bad for me

I wish good for you

You hating on me

I’m sorry for you

Awon gbegborun won yapa on the highway

Owo ti mo ni oun yapa in the briefcase” –D’Prince

He’s just trying to tell us he’s a hardworking boy in a very weak manner even though judging from the beat it’s supposed to be a kinda hardcore tune.

Because of Love ft. Bracket

“She’s too fine even without the makeup

There’s no way that we’re gonna break up

Whatever dem guys… say make dem go lock up

As I dey so, I don love up” – D’prince

I really like the tune of this song, it’s very Nigerian and quite danceable too and it features the “yori yori” boys. But again it’s another love song so I’ll pass.

bracket

Get some

she knows the Deal-ly o

she likes my viDeo” – D’Prince

All the song is saying is, she’s going to get the D. A good addition to the album.

Ojoro ft. Wande Coal

“you know as e dey for igboro

Na my money I dey spend no be borrow…

Bye bye to all the sorrow

No make dem call you olodo” – D’Prince

 

dat time dem call me olodo

Now I don turn to olowo

Olodo ti di omolowo

Dem say na ojoro” – Wande Coal

You just have to appreciate Wande Coal’s talent, he delivered on this one. This is a good collabo with a simple and straightforward message.

Wande-Coal

No more sleeping on ‘em ft. Wizkid

“ I don grow, I chop DonJazzy fertilizer

It’s not something that you find in your tantalizer

I see you there blogging mister analyzer

Analyze me more mister advertiser” – D’Prince

tumblr_m5qj9oWfgy1qe8tg3_large

O wait let me read those lines again

Lmao

crying

Sorry about that, let me continue

“I got a 9mm like David Banner

O my girl come take banana

It’s prince and wizzy killing your stereo

If you fuck with us you’re gonna be buried o” – Wizkid

Imagine carrying an Ak-47 around filled with just blanks and you not being even able to handle it like a pro, exactly! That’s how this track is played out. I guess the beat was too much for both of ‘em. Another D’prince, Wizkid collabo  gone wrong.

Chant

“snail slow, snail slow but hin no dey miss appointment

If you want to see your boy, you gats to book appointment

Na we dey make things happen, we be merriment

Always knew that I would make it cos I’m intelligent” – D’Prince

I feel Donjazzy was just practicing with D’Prince for some of the kind of beats he might be working on for kanye and G.O.O.D Music very soon. Don’t tell D’Prince o.

Thank You

A completely different sound to anything you would have heard on the album. It has a rock vibe to it and it’s so not D’Prince. It ends up coming out as a terrible attempt at rock music on his part.

Score Card

  1. Lyrics and flow : F
  2. Beats and Production : A-
  3. Delivery : C

Summary

This is a debut album from D’Prince so I wasn’t expecting much in the first place. On the downside, the album is just too long, I mean 21 tracks, 21 tracks of D’Prince??! That’s just not right on so many levels. The lyrics are stupid and even though some are fun, they are still awful lyrics. Now to some positives, most of the beats are dope! Thanks to Donjazzy, Baby Fresh, Aonebeats, Spellz and Joshbeatz, they did a fine job. There are a couple of hit tracks on this album no doubt and though it may appear as a complete failure as an album it passes on some levels. So this album gets a D from me.
