iTunes Review

A hard charging rapper from Fort Meyers, Florida, Plies’ charismatic delivery combines the laid back sneer of Pimp C with the populist groupie baiting of Rich Boy. His second album, Definition of Real, marks a major step forward from his underground debut The Real Testament and its synth-drenched, occasionally club friendly sound is aimed squarely at mainstream success. This is not to say that Definition of Real’s glossy sound represents any kind of artistic compromise for Plies. Indeed his leering double tracked vocals sound fantastic over the glimmering, Miami Club synthesizers of “Worth Going Fed For,” which combine the malevolent tones of the Giorgio Moroder’s Scarface soundtrack with the mechanized new wave aesthetic of groups like Yaz and Duran Duran. If this meeting of styles sounds awkward on paper it's splendidly executed on tracks like “Bust It Baby” which steals Akon’s vocoder heavy sound and leavens it with Plies’ down home Florida rhymes. Pop friendly, but at the same time resolutely street oriented, Plies’ Definition of Real marks the commercial emergence of a promising new artist.

Plies-Definition Of Real

Everybody’s favorite loveable goon is back after a 10 month absence. Having gone gold, he returns to define real. I’m Da Man: Drumma Boy’s synthetic sounds ripple, as pounding bass and a smooth swaggering Trey Songz is at the hook. Slurred and slow flow by Plies, it goes for a mesmerizing effect that isn’t fully addicting, but works. Decent intro. 3/5 Ol’ Lady: Mediocre production that is dazed and laid back, as Plies fills the track with adlibbing and sheer bragging. On this track, ladies are seen as objects, as Plies taunts “N***a owe me some money, he ain’t gotta pay me” instead he’ll “f*** ya ol’ lady”. Average cut that is more filler. 2.5/5 Bushes: Midnight Black returns with a much darker production, as light twinkles of bells and smooth instrumentation make for a late night beatdown. Plies delivers menacing taunts and boasts, as he gets at haters that keep “bulls***ing”, by hiding in the bushes and serving them with the choppers. Well done street thug track. 3.5/5 Worth Goin FED Fo: You could call this “100 Years” Pt. 2, as it isn’t as directed towards the system, but it slightly is. Plies contemplates keeping his status and staying hood, but is it “worth goin FED fo?”. Throbbing production is a nice compliment, decent track. 3.5/5 Dat B****: DVS’ club ready production here is another one of Plies “ladies tracks”. Light and feel good, the production isn’t as club ready as last year’s “I Am The Club” but it's a decent joint. 3/5 Somebody (Loves You): Featuring an excellent Patti LaBelle sample, it is sadly not used to its fullest extent. While the subject matter is touching and the production is fitting, Plies delivers decent lyrics, but they seem less inspired. It's a nice track, but could have been better. 3/5 Feel Like F***in’: This is filler, it's a lame sex track by Plies that is tiresome to listen to. He rehashed this several times on his debut and I guess Plies just needs one track that ode’s to “f***in”. Decent production and a million f bombs, skipper. 2/5 Watch Dis: With an auto tuned hook that is quite catchy, Drumma Boy’s synthetic club sounds are similar to “I’m Da Man”, however lighter in texture. This club banger is fun flowing and close to matching “I Am The Club”. It serves its purpose as a fun club cut. 3.5/5 Who Hotter Than Me: Midnight Black creates some heat here, the production is raw and straight fire for the streets. While the hook is rather annoying and repetitive, spoiled with the “haaah”’s, the track is a solid street cut. Plies loud mouthing and goon bragging will satisfy the streets but it’s only a decent street cut. 3.5/5 1 Day: Piano laced beat that has claps and slight bump works well here. This could be “Bid Long” Pt. 2, as Plies convincingly connects to your heart. Dedicated to those that are gone, to the pen, to the grave, the acoustic guitar strums softly, excellent track. 5/5 Bust It Baby Pt. 2: J.R. is back with another slick groove and polished production filled with Miami swagger. Rejuvenated synths and summer hit written all over, Ne-Yo adds the smooth hook, while Plies brings decent rhymes to his lady. Nothing great lyrically but it gets by, as the track is a summer jam. 4/5 S*** Bag: Rowdy and menacing cut, the production is synthesized strings and banging bass. Plies is at his maddest here with threats and boasts, as Plies comes with goon swagger and hood menace. 3/5 Please Excuse My Hands: Second single produced by DJ Frank E, has Jamie Foxx’s sultry smooth hook and catchy melody working well. Plies seduces his lady with fantasies of sexual pleasure, while The-Dream joins with a smooth verse. Solid single that should have success, serving the same way as “Hypnotized”. 4/5 Rich Folk: Jamming production that is filled with energy and glamour, as Plies dreams about the grand life and living like the “rich folk”. Decent groove that is enjoyable, as Plies is tired of being broke. 3/5 #1 Fan: DJ Nasty & LVM produce a feel good jam to finish off the album, as Plies says he’s the ladies number one fan. Keyshia Cole starts things with a solid hook and J. Holiday joins in later, eventually the two harmonizing and crooning. Fitting end that is light hearted and catchy. 3.5/5 Having returned so soon could have been either a genius move, or a complete failure. Luckily it is a success and Plies seems motivated to do better than his debut, as he gets top notch production from Midnight Black, DVS, J.R., Drumma Boy and others. After The Real Testament suffered from lack of topics and filler, a more mature and seasoned Plies delivers tracks that bring more menace. “Bushes” is more frightening than anything he’s ever created and “S*** Bag” is more rowdy thuggery. When the album really gets going is at “Worth Goin FED Fo”, could be considered as “100 Years” Pt. 2, Plies contemplates if its worth going FED to keep his street status. “Bust It Baby Pt. 2” and “Please Excuse My Hands” are radio aimed tracks that should do their job, especially with Foxx, Dream & Ne-Yo. Skippers include the lackadaisical “Feel Like F***in’” and “Ol’ Lady”, while decent bangers are “Watch Dis”, “Who Hotter Than Me” and “I’m Da Man”. The most touching of the set is the excellent “1 Day” while “Somebody (Loves You)” is slightly uninspired. Stylish “#1 Fan” works off its guests to finish things. Solid album that is for the streets, it shows a more mature Plies, and an improved effort. As he continues to establish his identity, lyrically he isn’t that great still, better but still needs work, and he continues his loud mouth and rowdy style. If you like that, cop it, otherwise check the noteworthy tracks. Rating: 7 out of 10
