Lore’l, ‘Billboard Bytch’ – Mixtape Review

Lore'l

One of the stars from this seasons Vh1′s ‘Love & Hip-Hop: New York’ follows up the success of the show with her new mixtape ‘Billboard Bytch.’

She strikes while the iron is hot, releasing this mixtape just after the season of the show she appeared on comes to a close. Nearly doing her thing dolo on most of the tape, Lore’l does enlist the help of fellow New York rapper Vado for her remix to ‘Everyday.’

Lore’l is not a bad rapper. If paying attention to her bars, you’ll catch the New York influence in her rhymes, the grittiness of the hood and that swagger of a hood chick with striking appeal and one who has respect from her male counterparts. With help from some banging beats, Lore’l does pretty well on this tape.

One of the downfalls here however, and what has become a stereotype of femcees, is the over emphasis on her lady parts and name-dropping every hot designer — Givenchy is just one. For every line about red bottoms and a variation of “Al Capone with titties,” you start to tune her out, but right when you do, Lore’l pulls you back in with an aggressive and catchy line.

On the opening track ‘Action,’ Lore’l drops a line about Louisville Cardinals basketball player Kevin Ware, who recently broke his leg — all caught on TV — during a big game. “Breaking n—-s legs on some Louisville s—,” she raps. This song is about dudes who are trying to get some “action” from her, and don’t get any. A cliche yes, but the wordplay on this one isn’t bad.

Cliche’s and stereotypes aside, ‘Billboard Bytch’ is a good listen. With banging beats, gritty rhymes and clever wordplay, Lore’l just might be able to carve out her own lane.
