Big Gipp – Mr Get Down Review

This is a classic down south mixtape. Gipp does well to get back to the raw sound of south Hip Hop and bringing that back. He slips a bit from the south sound nearer the end of the project but it is very southern overall and a very good mixtape.

The production is good and works well with Big Gipp’s style. His flow works well with gritty, street beats and the beats in question are just that. They are very atmospheric and can only work well with specific kinds of content. Fortunately Big Gipp nails the content for each of the tracks styles which creates a cohesive project.

The lyricism is alright but not overly lyrical so wont attract that audience of Hip Hop listeners. There is some lyricism but Gipp uses mostly entertainment based lyrics to tell a story or to simply raise the heart rate and keep the song interesting. Either way it may not be the most polished of lyrics but it is entertaining to listen to and will keep your attention.

The features are excellent. The second track has by far the best feature, as Biggie helps create a great track. The other features are good and ad to their tracks, but it is good to see that most of the project is just Gipp being Gipp as it helps to show that he is still a great rapper.

Overall, this is a great project for Big Gipp and is a good sign for his return. Whether with Goodie Mob, Ali or by himself, Big Gipp has shown that he is a southern force to be reckoned with and will continue to be so.
