Reviewing Improvements

I have been getting a vast majority of artist submitting videos and mixtapes and often I am either lost for words and don't care too much for the music but I loved the visuals or the video is trash but the message was clear and I loved it. For me it's not always about what you offer visually. I see your dope visuals but can you spit? I sometimes feel as if I am letting down the emcee that might not have given me his best song but because the first one wasn't something I like I didn't respond or I don't give them the right feedback and that is my bad as I have been trying to figure out how to execute a some what "rating system" and believe me I had names for days but couldn't accurately depict what I wanted to accomplish by reviewing mixtapes and videos.It is more than having a catchy name to call what it is that I am doing when I receive music. I am aware that as artist you guys spend a lot of time perfecting the art and improving your artistry. I have done a few mixtape reviews and I am proud of the finished analysis but I am not only going to voice my opinion about the collective project but I will be giving ratings based off of the following criteria.

  1. Lyrics
  2. Instrumentals
  3. Visual
  4. Star Potential 
  5. Overall Package 
     ie: Lyrics:4 Instrumental:5 Visual:4.5 Star Potential:4.7 Overall: 5

The scale will be based from 1-5 with 5 being the highest. The more 5's the more often you may grace the Top 10 and Top 5. I am a real sucker for music I love. It is in no way or form showing favoritism to particular artist nor will the repeated entry's be because someone's individual grind to be featured. I solely make  decision on who is featured and I have had moments where I wanted to feature the same artist from last week the following week because I simply enjoyed the work behind the mixtape or the work the artist does in general. I am appreciative of every artist that continues to submit music and I encourage you if you like constructive criticism and want to know my honest opinion to continue to send in your music. You never know if I will review your album, mixtape, or video. It is often not something you will know about until I post. This helps keep its unbiased. If for any reason you don't like your critique or review please submit a request via email for it to be removed.
