Now, Chris is only eighteen, so it's probably safe to say that he doesn't have a whole lot of life experience, but what he's talking about isn't anything new. You'll find subpar examples of all the usual suspects: sex ("Walk Like That"; "Touch Me"), blingin' ("Doin' My Thang") and an end-of-album remix-of-the-first-single (with too many guest stars to mention, although the Game drops a nice verse). Even his ode to his mother, "Momma", only comes off as average.
The only songs that really stand out to me on here are "The Hand Clap" (which I hate to admit) and "New Fashion". But on the latter, it's ironic that Chris is calling out wack emcees that only rap about their money and their bling because that's exactly what HE was doing earlier on the album. In the end, 51/50 Ratchet makes Chris another name to add to the list of bad hurricanes along with G and Katrina.
PS: How are you going to take the word "ratchet" and use it to mean hood? EVERYBODY knows that that word is Upnorth slang for burner. You see what I'm saying? These little kids are messing up the game!
I mean i just thinks he has more maturity to do to get out of that i'm the best stage you know? But I don't think his lyrics are the greatest but he has such potential to become a very good lyricist. Like if you listen to his flow in Playa's Rock that's like woah. Even though the lyrics kind of suck.
I say only time will tell when he becomes more mature and start rapping about something worth listening to he'll be up there with Jay-Z because he's got the skills.
