Don Trip comes off the buzz on his collaboration album with Starlito and shows that he's the best trapper since 09 Waka Flocka Flame.
Guerrilla opens up with a hard generic trap track filled with adlibs, but unlike other artists (Ca$h Out, Future, Waka Flocka Flame, ect) he's actually saying something.
With lines as, "Put and extender on that 40 & that 40 got a twin", "Ridin with that fire like a cross from the Klan", & "Your girl gave me retarded brain, I feel special
" how can someone not like this?
The next three tracks (Help Is On The Way, Allen Iverson, and Trap'd In The Trap) touch on more personal subjects rather than bragging (Guerrilla). On Help Is On The Way Trip talks about the rap game and how rappers aren't fake and why he is real. This leads into an even deeper song. Allen Iverson is definitely the best hip hop track this year. Sampling an infamous interview Don Trip makes an amazing song. He (Don Trip) speaks on problems of blowing up while (attempting) to raise his children.
In Trap'd In The Trap Trip takes on the roll of telling a story of a man (himself?) who wants to do right by working a legal 9-5, but the money isn't enough. Even while getting two jobs and working his ass off, his baby moms still chooses to sleep with dope boys which ultimately ends with him killing someone when he spots his girl with his best friend. After this track Trip goes back to bragging because, "If I did that I'd be in this bitch depressed." The Life is just a simple track with a great Juicy J feature, and avg Yo Gotti feature, and a horrid Young Dolph feature. With that break over Trip's next song is Sorry Momma. On this track Don Trip speaks about selling drugs to pay the bills as a teenager. He knows he's doing wrong, but can anyone complain when there is food on the table?
Once again he flips the scripted with the next track Ruff. Trip makes witty punchlines over sex acts. "I tried to be a gentle man, but that just made her blush." "I slapped her on her ass and she went nuts!"
Back to the personal songs. Human is once again about how the media shows him and about his various subject matter. Is it "Oochie Wally Wally" or is it "One Mic"? Is it "Black Girl Lost" or shorty owe you for ice? While not a sad song New Lifestyle begins with his hopes and dreams of having a different life. He speaks on his goals of making sure his son has a different lifestyle than him. Arlon feature on the chorus really boosts the track. The Feds speaks on how he needed to do dirty for his mom, but also how he tried to do it clean. Like Me stays near the same subject matter. Don Trip talks about how "you" don't know what he's been through and why his life was much harder. Apparently his mom was sleeping with his best friend.

I'ma Mess is Trip's attempt as a smooth song. Wale kills it
On Untitled for the 10th time Trip speaks about his life on a indie (folk?) sample. This has the same subjects as other personal songs on here. He knows his verses contradict, but as said early that makes him human. The next track Pussy Don Trip gets a Lex Luger like beat and a 2 Chainz feature. Can't hate on that track. Shut Up! Don Trip gets a Boi-1Da like beat and spits another story about transporting drugs and almost getting caught. On the 2nd to last track Trip uses his most known adlib "Blacacaca" to fill the song with energy, comedy, and gun talk. And then there is the Outro. It's an exact opposite of the opening track, Guerilla. Outro is about who he is, "how" he is, and where he wants to go.
I know this was a lame track-by-track bleh like review, but please give this album a spin.
