Editors’ Notes

The follow-up to Webbie’s Trill Entertainment debut, Savage Life, lacks the devastating focus of its predecessor, but isn’t an ounce shorter of potent Southern flavor. The strength of Savage Life 2 is the total union between Webbie and Trill in-house producers BJ and Mouse on tha Track. As live snare cracks whip the beat of “Six 12’s” and the 808 bass detonates beneath “Independent,” it becomes clear that Webbie is a rapper synchronized to his producers. Even when the rhymes are weak, the song as a whole is usually a triumph of attitude and atmosphere. Standouts include “Just Like Me,” “Doe Doe,” and the Manny Fresh-produced “I Know.” And even as Webbie is criticized for being generic, “I Miss You” is the ultimate rap anomaly: an unabashedly vulnerable song about monogamy. How many Southern street rappers are man enough to pull a line like this: “Girls'll walk up on me flirting’, I be telling ‘em ‘Nah I'm chillin’ / Hug you ‘til I go to sleep just to squeeze you like my lil' pillow.”

Webbie-Savage Life 2

Three years after his club hit, "Give Me That", Webbie returns with his sophomore release, Savage Life 2. 2 Smooth: The track isn't bad, with a sing songy and brag heavy hook. Webbie lets you know he's back, the production is nice and I liked the start. 3/5 Six 12's: Mouse handles a verse and production, with the latter being better. His guest verse was decent, but his production here is solid, as Webbie simplistic and repetitive hook is engaging, but the track isn't anything spectacular, merely a decent banger. 3/5 Independent: Boosie & Webbie shine, but Lil Phat's appearance isn't needed. Mouse's banging production works well for this street banger that has been heating up the streets. Its a solid pick for the lead single, sampling his second hit, "Bad B****" on the hook. 4/5 I Know: Laid back and relaxed, Young Dro shines here with a good verse. Webbie plays it cool, with smooth southern drawls and a solid hook. 3.5/5 Just Like Me: Decent beat, Webbie really shines on this cut. I liked how he has this faster flow, explaining about the hood life. Saying how "you gon be just like me" in between, bustin guns and other street actions. Solid track for Webbie. 3.5/5 Thuggin: Booming bass, Webbie's hook is good and very fitting over this club banger. Guests, Lil Phat, Shell & Boosie all contribute here, some not necessary but this is a solid banger. 3.5/5 I'm Hot: Guitar and synth built, Webbie's hook is only decent. The horns are added nicely during the hook, but overall the track is lacking. 2.5/5 You A Trip: Really liked the production, light piano keys and rousing horns with snares. Big Head and Webbie do their thing on this track and some emotion is even evident here, as Webbie reflects on how and old buddy is "a trip". 3.5/5 Just Like This: Decent track here with Big Head, the hook is a little too lazy and the track ends up being a dud. 2/5 A Miracle: Rick Ross & Birdman join Webbie for this synth heavy, piano and guitar production. The track works off its production, as Webbie pauses and thinks about the situation he's in, about it being a miracle. 4/5 I'm Ready: Mannie Fresh on the beat, the production is no doubt a banger but sounds too similar to his previous productions. Particularly Young Jeezy's "And Then What", but the synth line isn't bad and Webbie does well, despite the similar beat. 3/5 I Miss You: The next single, Fresh's sample of Diana Ross, and overall production is great, as Letoya Luckett soften things up on the hook. Webbie comes off believable here, as its a different move for the young savage. His flow is smooth and heartfelt, solid track. 4/5 Doe Doe: Lil Phat drops another weak verse, as the hook is dull and boring. Banging production, this track just didn't cut it, as Bun B shines. Decent collab. 3/5 Fly As An Eagle: R.I.P. Pimp C, as his hook here is beautifully done, classic Pimp that truly makes this track. Over the bouncy synths and organs, Webbie and Foxx have decent verses, but Pimp's hook is all the worth listening to. 3/5 Ya'll Ain't Makin' No Money: Webbie has a rowdy banger, as Mannie Fresh has some similar production, once again, but its whatever. This is straight ruckus, with the shoutout shoutback type of hook, it is catchy and a solid club banger, that is one of the better tracks on this album. 3.5/5 First Night: Ends the album on a weak point, as the production and hook are cliched and dull. The track is a dissapointment, especially on how well Webbie had constructed his sophomore disc, this could be left out. 1.5/5 Overall I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by Webbie. I really felt that he wasn't going to do anything after his debut, Savage Life. His debut showed the typical southern artist that was full of street grime, guns, girls and the rest of the hood actions. However, Savage Life 2 shows much improvement and a lot more maturity on Webbie's part, probably due to his three year absence and nation wide attention. On his debut, all he knew was guns, girls and braggacio. That's all evident here, but its done with different flows and not just the in your face, loud spit he had on Savage Life. Here, he switches things up with the emotional and believable "I Miss You", as "Independent" solidifies his status as being able to create a banger, "I Know" is a much different style, Webbie is laid back and relaxed cut that has a worthy Young Dro appearance that is oozing with confidence. "A Miracle" shines off production, as Webbie holds his own with Rick Ross & Birdman. The production is a lot more diverse and better than the constant bump of Savage Life, that makes this album more memborable than his debut. Now don't get me wrong, Webbie isn't the greatest rapper alive or anything, he simply has done his job, delivering a strong second album. Lyrically its the typical and cliched topics, but the way he has done it is much better than his debut. There are some missteps, a shorter album may have benefitted Webbie, but for now Savage Life 2 will do for the hood, as it has bump and should satisfy the streets, while showing Webbie's growth.

Webbie Steps Up!

Big Step From Savage Life! Lets break it down. Track by Track: 1. 2 Smooth - Slow start off. I'm glad to see he has to interludes or "intros" (25 second ones) in here! 3.5/5 2. Six 12's - I like it. I don't know who Mouse On Tha Track is but it's pretty hot. 3.5/5 3. Independent - I have to admit, I wasn't a big fan of this track when I heard it but now I keep hearing it and I've grown to love it! Club Banger! 5/5 4. I Know - Young Dro is fire and saved him here. Mellow track but still good. 4/5 5. Just Like Me - Webbie flows here. It's pretty sick. Decent. 3.5/5 6. Thuggin' - I actually love this track. Lil' Phat can flow along with Webbie as we all know. 4.5./5 7. I'm Hot - This is a hot track. I'm likin it. Webbie's steppin up here. 4/5 8. You a Trip - This tack is decent. I'm lovin these beats throughout the album. Big Head can flow. 3.5/5 9. Just Like This - Big Head is also on this track. It's decent. 3.5/5 10. A Miracle - Favorite track on the album. I've been a fan of Rick Ross ever since I've heard him and I don't care what people say, Birdman can flow. Love It! 5/5 11. I'm Ready - This is hot! Sick flow! 4/5 12. I Miss You - I loved Pimp C. This is the second best track on the album. Heartfelt and real! 5/5 13. Doe Doe - I kinda like how this track was put together! Bun B can always flow! 4/5 14. Fly As an Eagle - Pimp C is da bomb!

First Night - I don't know who Mouse is but it was definetely not the way to close. If it was put more in the middle it would've been better so I have to give it some credit. 3.5/5 Overall: Definetely a step up from Savage Life. There are several sick flows on here and Webbie is a force to be reckoned with. I bought Savage Life and I would buy this at Best Buy because it's the same price and comes with two ill bonus tracks. Overall Rating: 4/5

Excellent follow up!

Okay, so I didn't get Webbie's first album, because, to be honest, I thought he was a joke. He wasn't a very great rapper,k he just had some good beats and a cool flow. Well the flow is back, and he has further developed it and spits his great flow with such intensity that he really shines on an album that I hadn't really been checking for. Overall, the beats are hot, the hooks are good, and Webbie kills most of the tracks he is on. Expect southern, gangster lyrics with some wit to boot. Get it. 4/5.

Biography

Born: September 6, 1985 in Baton Rouge, LA

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Baton Rouge native Webster "Webbie" Gradney, Jr.'s brash and street-smart style was influenced by the early No Limit and Cash Money releases that were creeping out of nearby New Orleans, and the classic West Coast sound of Snoop Dogg and Eazy-E. Webbie was only eight when his mother died of cancer. Bouncing from family member to family member was hard, but the West Coast tapes his cousin would loan him provided Webbie with rebellious music that spoke to his inner tension. Later, and not even a teenager...
