DJ Cruze EXCLUSIVE – Trina – Round of Applause – Official Music Video & ‘Back 2 Business’ Mixtape Release!

BRAND NEW VIDEO!! TRINA "ROUND OF APPLAUSE" prod. by Audio Jones

 

The “Baddest Bitch” is Back with a New, Exclusive Release; Miami Dade’s finest and most notorious Female Rapper Trina debuts her latest music video, “Round of Applause.” DJ Cruze offers his critique.

“Being brought up in the 2000s, I always enjoyed Trina in cameos; for example, Silk the Shocker, Trick Daddy, and many more!! This industry is hard to get accustomed for the scene is always changing, and never being consistent.

Her single Round of Applause; is an ‘ok’ record; I personally didn’t like it.  I see this song more as a prelude of what’s to come.  Yes, it is a good record, but it’s too slow and there’s no relevancy to the hook.  Forgive me for what I’m about to lay down, but, I almost believe that Trina released this mixtape in order to generate buzz and have everyone talking about it.”

 

 

 

“Round Of Applause” is featured on Trina’s “Back 2 Business” Mixtape, which is executive produced by French Montana and directed by Montoya.

DJ Cruze continues…

“The entire mixtape, as a whole, is better than what i expected.  Compared to her older music, Trina did a good job of repositioning herself.   Considering she’s from Miami, the beats are definitely from the ‘305’ area.  Overall, the music is pretty good on this project, using “Bitch Bad,” and “Hell Yeah” as examples.
What I liked about this mixtape, compared to others, is the dimension.
I like the fact she’s using a lot of effects and projecting her voice depending on the beats, unlike other “female” rappers that have a very monotone voice.  The mixtape has a lot of jumpy beats, so I’m sure ladies and fellas will both enjoy this mixtape.   Even though she raps about cliché and materialistic things, as many other female rappers do, it actually sounds good enough where it doesn’t sound very boring and overbearing. Even though she is a rendition of Li’l Kim, but from Miami, Trina has a few records for the ladies to relate to, such as the song, “I fucks with You.”  To me, relatability is key; it’s what rap music is all about.
In this mixtape, Trina features a few notable rappers; French Montana, Dj Khaled, Slim Thug, and also a few upcoming rappers as well. It comes to show that she never lost her diva image, and many people, especially new, breakout artists are still willing to collaborate with her.

 

 

My favorite songs from the mixtape are “I want” and “Show out.”  This cd is definitely a keeper!

 

 

What I didn’t like was that Trina didn’t have many collaborations and the mixtape cover looks real cheesy! I also don’t like the fact she keeps saying she’s a “Bad Bitch,” considering we all know who she is and what’s she about.  When you’ve got it, there’s no need to flaunt it.  One thing that stood out was that her flow still the same; even though she knows how to use her voice, the rhythm has already been heard in the industry. There are a couple songs where she sounds similar to Chicago rapstress Shawnna, a member from DTP.

 

 

Again, overall, the mixtape is a good composition; although it has a few cliché sounds, but that’s her demeanor.  The songs are short enough where you want to play them over and over again.  The best thing about this mixtape is that it’s not just another therapy session, instead, she talks to all kinds of crowds and types of people.  The mixtape title is definitely well put and demonstrated throughout the mixtape; Trina means business!  I rate ‘Back 2 Business’ a 7.5, only because there are a few songs that I would skip, they just don’t sound right to in my musicla opinion.  The mixtape is good enough for new listeners to check it out.”

March Madness Mix

The Road to Becoming a Top-Notch DJ (Dee Jay/Disk Jockey) includes one specific destination along that journey: Mastering the Mix.

No residency or celebrity event will fulfill DJ Cruze more than the satisfaction of knowing his mixes are unmarred and matchless.

On his quest to the Top, DJ Cruze discusses why he frequently returns to the Mixing Room; for one purpose only… PERFECTION!

Referring to the March Madness 2013 Mix, he states:

“Making this mix was probably one of the hardest mixes I’ve ever done in my entire DJ/Production Career. Composing this piece literally forced me to sit on the other side of the speaker and analyze this weeks Mix Subject, song relevancy to it along with the needs of the listener. The song selection took an hour to set up alone; simply because I aim to tell a story rather than throw a bunch of songs together. I also wanted to show diversity by mixing Old School, New School, Hip-Hop and a bit of Rock-and-Roll.”
