Album Review: In My Feelings (Goin’ Thru It), Boosie Badazz

In My Feelings (Goin’ Thru It), Boosie Badazz

Rating: 🏀🏀🏀 –  Three Pointer (2.8/4)

1) The Rain – 🏀🏀

Boosie opens the album ‘in his feelings,’ so to speak. He dives deep into his personal life, discussing things such as his health issues and dysfunctional relationships. Rapping over a backdrop of rain and thunderstorms, the content is what makes the song good.

2) Cancer – 🏀🏀🏀

Diving into the raw emotions one might have when first hearing that he/she has cancer, Boosie gives listeners his first-hand account. Song could have been mixed better, but has a melodic feel to it as Boosie asks God how he got cancer.

3) Stressing Me – 🏀🏀🏀

“I hope your new year’s resolution to stop stressing me.” Any man, or woman, can relate to the sentiments Boosie articulates in this song. He brings classic Boosie energy on this track. The hook leaves a little to be desired, but gets the point across effectively.

4) Warning Signs – 🏀🏀🏀🏀

Building on the energy from the previous track, “Warning Signs” boasts what is probably the best beat on the album. With a hook that sounds Scarface/Tupac-influenced, Boosie remembers advice from his mom not to put his faith in man.

5) Bad Guy – 🏀🏀

Boosie’s thoughts are understandable and make sense but weren’t well organized into great rap lyrics. The hook is the best thing about this song, and it isn’t even that good.

6) Call of Duty – 🏀🏀

Boosie proclaims his call of duty but rambles a little too much over the track. Song has some high moments but not enough to be a three-pointer.

7) Smile to Keep from Crying – 🏀🏀🏀

The song starts slow but with piano keys playing in staccato, Boosie does a good job of eventually catching the beat in a more engaging way. After about a minute the song  picks up and ends on a high note.

8) Forgive Me Being Lost – 🏀🏀🏀

It shouldn’t be hard to forgive Boosie for being lost after he describes his circumstances in this introspective banger.

9) Roller Coaster Ride – 🏀🏀🏀

In his classic street-preaching style, Boosie stays with the “In My Feelings” theme of the album, without sounding too emo about it.

10) I Know They Gone Miss Me – n/a

Commend Boosie for understanding his importance to the people in his life. Many times people who live recklessly, don’t realize how much they mean to the people around them.
