2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Syke Daddy.
1. Hey
A nice introduction the album. Not too loud, not too soft. The beat is a deep grumble of bass mixed with a few brass tones and a clapper. Syke fits the beat nicely and begins to drop his rapping, sometimes slightly sung mellow flow to it.
2. R.M.F.N.
Dedicated to the memory of Tupac, has a softly spoken verse and hard chorus as Syke talks of his...

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Syke Daddy., 21 Sep 2004

This review is from: Big Syke Daddy (Audio CD)
1. Hey
A nice introduction the album. Not too loud, not too soft. The beat is a deep grumble of bass mixed with a few brass tones and a clapper. Syke fits the beat nicely and begins to drop his rapping, sometimes slightly sung mellow flow to it.
2. R.M.F.N.
Dedicated to the memory of Tupac, has a softly spoken verse and hard chorus as Syke talks of his memories while rolling with the other half of him, his road dog, Tupac. Syke is saying that no one knew Tupac like he did, yet at the same time, everyone gives him props anyway, both friends and enemies. It sounds slightly Down South in the beat department.
3. L.A.L.A.
The second track with an abbreviated title. A nice sounding LA anthem. Jumpy and catchy, L.A.L.A. is in the department of Makaveli's "To Live And Die In LA" in both theme and in the content for the love and sights in the hoods of LA, a lot like any other L.A. 'love' song.
4. Time Iz Money
"Time Iz Money" is a mellow beat but manages to pull it off in sounding quite nice through the appearances on it. Syke sings hook, which is a nice touch, while his verse is about hustling to make money. E-40 drops a pimping verse and Quik delivers his standard cocky flow.
5. Big Syke Daddy
It sounds a bit too slow and boring for a title track. A skipper. Listen to remix instead.
6. Come Wit Me
A real blunted out beat with a heavy bassline. A nice listen-to as well. About going away to hang with Syke to see what he sees. Romantic in a way. The third verse is a funny listen to.
7. My Block
It's the spot for Syke's lablemates Swerve to shine on. Although it is a song about struggling and dealing, it sounds pretty wack and the youngstas on it sound a bit pants! If you hear the guy with the fat-man's voice I'm sure you'll notice, he sounds like he bit his tongue! Another one sounds like Layzie Bone. I'm sorry but although the message is trying to be delivered, I don't like the song, and the beat sounds a bit further West than the rest of the CD...
8. At Your Convenience
It's another mellow beat, put down by Johnny J. A song about how the woman is annoyed that Syke is never around when she wants him. For Johnny J, the song is a bit below average and the hook sounds terrible.
9. Problemz
A bassline heavy beat, by Syke who's renowned for making them that way. Syke is basically letting off some anger at those who got problems that involve him.
10. Why
The theme is in the title. Syke is contemplating and questioning the questions of the streets and why people got to hustle and kill just to survive. The beat and the hook itself sounds similar to a Johnny J beat.
11. I Got Keyz
Most people will remember Syke's "I got keeeys!" from Tupac's 'All Eyez On Me.' This song goes onto expand on that. The song is about slanging the keys on the block then disappearing right after. Sounds really stealthy! Syke boasts about not getting caught. The beat is a dark and a heavy piano tune adds to the hardness of it.
12. On My Way Out
A downbeat song about escapism from the everyday hustling life. While mentally Syke can get away, physically he's stuck, it sounds pretty deep. The chorus is a choral act between the vocalist and Syke, and makes it sound quite good. In a way, it makes you think.
13. Good Timez
This is some dope Johnny J production. Got the type of vibe that Tupac's 'Lil Homiez' has. Syke is talking about his younger days and the fun and innocence he had as a child. Very summery feel to it. Something to vibe to to catch some good feelings.
14. Past Future
The infamous-to-this-reviewer Swerv make their second appearance on the album! Out of their songs, I feel this is the nicer one. I can make out the song has some sort of double meaning but it's a bit confusing to think about... the past being the future and the future being the past; it makes a cycle, in other words, its another 'not going anywhere' song!
15. Enjoyin Life
Another dope Johnny J production. Has a nice and Westcoast feel to it. It's funny how this song can contrast with Syke's dope-slanging type songs coz its about the same day-to-day cycle but much more upbeat and happy!
16. RideOnUm
RideOnUm is Syke's lable, the song is the standard introduction to both label and its line up. In order to make the big impression, the rapping and the beat is both very hard, in fact, the bass is very cutting and sounds like a motorbike engine. Not that good a song though, just the average 'exploding on the scene' type track.
Leave the CD spinning on for about a minute more and you get 2 extra cuts!
Big Syke Daddy RMX
This remix sounds a lot better than the original. Instead of being the moany-type **** song, it has a harder beat with louder drums and a better bassline. Much better
Good Timez RMX
Sounds slightly quicker and has a bit more of a jump to it including some string instruments rather than bass guitar. The original is a bit better though
'Big Syke Daddy' is a dope CD but same time it's nothing special. Chances are if you're a Tupac or Outlawz fan, you'll cop this. For those who aren't hot on the Outlawz, this is a nice CD to pick up for some mellow beats and Syke catches good hooks and his voice is very powerful and ominous, but with the complimentary introduction of Syke's new acts ruin the OG feel to the overall result
