In his new Blow 3 mixtape, nearly track after track, Memphis rapper Criminal Manne gives Criminal Manne fans and listeners exactly what they would expect from the ‘Crim,’ that’s if you’ve been following the underground ‘keep it real’ rapper’s career. If not, you will definitely get the first dose of true Memphis rap, from one of the best lyrically, as heard in one of the intro tracks ‘Don’t Talk,’ produced by Memphis’ own Lil Lody and featuring rapper Don Trip, which was released as a music video. Good start to the mixtape.
With very nice mixtape features, Blow 3 features artists such as OG Boo Dirty and Young Dolph who give the mixtape unique fresh tracks after fresh tracks.
In mixtape song 200, the rappers are “on the way to the money” followed by nice track Bonnie & Clyde, then on Crim’s stand alone track ‘Gangsta,’ the rapper’s underground street lyrics again shine.
You looking at a “Gangsta”
Then keeping the ‘dope’ flow going, Criminal Manne takes his ‘hustler of the year’ rhymes ‘To the Max’.
Then, jumping ahead to track #9, Criminal Manne goes in on a somewhat remake of rapper/producer Lil Lody’s song Turnt Up, produced by Lil Lody himself and featuring OJ Da Juiceman. With a hook which leaves you somewhat expecting more, the Criminal Manne verses and Juiceman verse make for another bumping track.
While the few songs following this don’t bring the same level of bangin ‘dopeness’ or ‘crunkness’ of the tracks before, the ‘bangers’ return with track #14 Feeling Myself. Then Crim shines yet again on nicely sampled track #15 Hard.
Number 16 track On Ya Mind is nice as well with lyrics such as…..
.. heard that I was soft, and I aint gon’ bust nan gun/stop the beat, listen to me, do you know where I’m from/n*gga Memphis
On track #17, Criminal Manne brings on rapper Young Joc on the Lil Lody produced ‘Boy Shorts,’ which again is a nice track deserving of a music video even, for more reasons than one.
Overall, as mentioned already, Blow 3 is what you would expect from Criminal Manne, that’s dopeness – nothing more, nothing less – so if you’re expecting Criminal Manne, then the Blow 3 mixtape won’t disappoint.
