Review: Buttabean – The Album

Review: Buttabean – The Album

Buttabean – The Album has a more mellow, chill, laid back vibe to it than an aggressive country rap sound he normally utilizes as on his other albums. He showcases his sexual side with use of sex rap in songs such as Shake It Girl, Dirty Slut, Talk To Me, Move Ur Body, I Ain’t A Ho, It Feels So Good, and STD. He gets into an intellectual mood with songs Sticks & Stones, STD, and Talk To Me.

Buttabean is Texas rap, white boy rap, and country rap at its finest. Buttabean is the Bubba Sparxxx and Z-Ro of Waco rap. The sound will rock your speakers. Buttabean’s music has the lyrical genius of Eminem, with the melodic tone of Z-Ro, and prowess of Paul Wall. This album is Eminem, Kid Rock, Bubba Sparxxx, Z-Ro, and Paul Wall mixed together with some more gangsta type of flow, which is what’s used on this 2007 album. There’s something for everyone on this album of his. This album is and remains one of Buttabean’s most forgotten overlooked albums of all time. It’s well a worth to listen to.

You have you educational songs such as The Bad Son, Sticks And Stones, and STD. Sticks And Stones is an educational rap song about how sticks and stones will break your bones but words will never hurt you. The Bad Son teaches us that everyone has hardships, things in their life that make them who they are, and have struggles. STD deals with dangers of unprotected sex.

Buttabean’s The Album is an older album of his which didn’t sell as well as Psycho Therapy, Underground Champ, Role Model, or Texas Slang did. Which is why Buttabean believes this is his best album of 2007 and it meant a great deal to him to have recorded The Album.

The Album was released on CD and as a digital download in 2007 from Wreckin The Mic Recordz outta Waco, Texas. The Album was sold primarily on CDBaby and DatPiff. The Album was streamed as digital download on DatPiff too. This album remained off the digital radar for the most part.

Sticks And Stones is an educational rap song about how sticks and stones will break your bones but words will never hurt you. “Sticks and stones will break your bones but words will never hurt you.” is the message Buttabean is trying to convey.

You know the old sayings, “Sticks and stones will break your bones but words will never hurt you.” , “Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.” , “Sticks and stones will break my bones your words will never hurt me.”, “Sticks and stones may break my bones your words will never hurt me.” , and “Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me.” .

The song Sticks And Stones had the melodic tone of a Z-Ro song and has an intellectual mood. Now the beats are set up and programmed in a simple manner. Not that many beats were used.

The Bad Son teaches us that everyone has hardships, things in their life that make them who they are, and have struggles. The song has a sad heartbreaking vibe due to the piano that is used. This song is also Buttabean’s life story. A small anecdote of his life and the soundtrack to his life. He breaks every little aspect of his life into detail. The Bad Son came from the 2007 album Buttabean – The Album.

Buttabean tells us this educational fact at the very beginning of this song. “Everyone has hardships, things in their life that make them who they are. Some people take these things for granted. Live life to the fullest.”

This is Buttabean’s life story. Buttabean was born September 11, 1978. Sometimes he wishes it was his date of death. He was born a dysfunctional child into a dysfunctional family. He didn’t understand why. His father said he was way too wild. A fat little kid. Angry at the world so he fed his face. Not to mention the lack of attention from his parents and peers. He got bad grades. Then the attention was given at the swing of a hand. That taught him to be his own man. So he robbed the old and young.

Now he works hard to show what he’s worth. People hate like he’s better off in church. He is trying to see some type of life that he can possibly salvage. Most people need love but Buttabean can live without that. His mind is crowded with fear as he feels his time is coming. The Grim Reaper is on his trail. His lifespan shortens every time he ends up in jail. Hell hath no fury. Life may not be worth much but he knows it’s worth living.

Remember Them Days reminds me of Gonna Be Alright by San Antonio rap group P.K.O. That’s what the ballad sounds like in that song except this version is an acoustic cover of The Floaters – Float On which is what Remember Them Days samples. Buttabean delves into the past from childhood on this song of his. Remember Them Days was written in 2006. This song came from the 2007 album Buttabean – The Album.

Buttabean remembers them days where he would float away. Things wouldn’t be the same. If he never did crime or got in this game. He tried to change as a boy as he grew into a man. Buttabean did that by himself without a helping hand. But a few people that he knew helped him through the struggle. They helped him through the struggles of life. He never understood what it took to teach him right from wrong. He thanked those who helped him for everything.

His father told him no man could do it but himself. That was his father’s way of teaching him to be self-sufficient. His father says, “If you want to make money quit helping yourself. Other people work hard just to pay the bills. And if you keep it up, you might wind up killed.”

Buttabean was a hardheaded boy who wanted a good life. He put the pen to the paper. That is when and where he became a rapper.

Buttabean remembers the days of the past where him and his brothers were acting an ass. They were acting up, skipping school, and getting into trouble. His brothers wanted pass school though.

Buttabean did not like school. He did not try and did not apply himself. He was already into a life of crime at an early age. He put the pen to the paper and mixed rock music with rap. That is when and where he became a rapper.

His older brother was a smart guy full of knowledge. That’s the reason he was off to college to further his education. Buttabean has it like him but he chose to use his knowledge in his music instead. That is the message in some of his music.

His little sister was the shit. She could never do wrong or do no harm. She’s been fucked in the head for a little bit too long. By drugs of course. Buttabean tells his little sister that she is too strong to live her life with no goals. There is no one to blame for the road she chose.

Life was simple as a kid. Buttabean remembers no worries or pain. He never knew as a child that this world world change. These days are so rough. There is no love or comfort. Kids with guns and hate.

I Never Asked For This is about how Buttabean never asked for this life and things are the way they are.

Buttabean never asked for this life. It’s just the way that it is. He never imagined that this pain would happen. Buttabean contemplates on how he could live a normal life and let his “Buttabean persona” fade away by giving up rapping. He could let his dreams fall apart and raise a family. Trade in his Mercedes Benz and roll in a Camry instead. He could get a real job. He’s not selling out by selling his soul. He gets what he wants by working hard and going for the gold. Buttabean’s not giving up.

What keeps Buttabean alive is the thought of success. He plans to give his momma a big house and his girl a nice dress. All the stress pent up from all the years of living life while swallowing his pride. That just brings him to tears. That’s why he has been fighting this life. He is a man with glory searching for a dream.

Hypothetically he could sell drugs and give up on recording music. He is well aware of this. The thought of cash easily influences him. But sadly money never lasts. You know they say fast money never lasts for too long. Buttabean never asked for this life. It’s just the way that it is. He never imagined all this. He just goes through with all it.

It’s so hard to tell the real from the fake. Buttabean has to be rude as he has a point to make. He could do more shows and concerts for publicity. Buttabean is new to the music game. He never asked for this life but he lives it well. He just goes through all it.

STD is a cautionary tale of why to avoid getting an STD. Buttabean uses his own experience of how he got an STD on the song STD. Having unprotected sex is what gave Buttabean an STD. Now for those who did not know or are currently aware of, an STD is a sexually transmitted disease. People get STD’s from having unprotected sex. STDs can cause death.

Dirty Slut can be noted for its usage of heavy bass and solo violin ensemble. It’s both the usage of heavy bass and solo violin ensemble that stand out the most. Shake It is a great song to dance to. It is perfect.

It Feels So Good is known for its mixing and turntablism. The DJ uses some killer cuts on this song. The song explores the pleasures and joys of having sexual intercourse. It Feels So Good came from his 2005 album called Texas Slang.

I’d Rather Feel Pain is about learning harder lessons in life. His music is an expression of lessons in life. I’d Rather Feel Pain is a sad dark song that teaches us a lesson in life. Sometimes you’d rather feel pain than guilt. Feeling pain is a hard lesson in life we must fathom.

I rate this album 5/5*****!!
