Tru Baller – Return of the King
Review by Check-It-Out
Now I’ve heard people say that how can one guy hold down a mixtape, and it will get boring watching the same dude, well your wrong this is possibly one of the best tapes I’ve seen in awhile, FIRST off the editing is the sickest for any mixtape, its so clean and professional Loh really outdid himself and has a real career ahead in editing. This whole mixtape has the feel of watching a fresh productions internet clip, and if your not use to that stylized form of ball you should be, Tru gets my respect, well already had it, but again holding down a full mixtape by himself, is something I’ve never seen done before or heard of and he does it brilliantly.
The scenes starting with the return of the king intro- segment showing which other ballers were on the tape (Ghost, Make you Famous, Prince, Pepper, Sweet n Low ..etc) and of course Chris young aka Tru Baller at his finest in all various events, then moving on to the Toronto takeover-were you see tru playing in various locations in tdot and holding it down check out make you famous with some dunks, Ghost appears in there as well. Get use to this – again shows Tru Baller in various gyms around tdot and area playing and killing opponents make you famous dunks everywhere. Water freestyle – we all know and love tru’s freestyle and he shows new moves and creativity in front of a very unique water fall location. Then we get some Tru Baller throwback footage him in high school and different college and semipro games, some YPA players ball thrown in too Tru VS. Hot Sauce. The Florida takeover clips and then going onto HIU footage and dime open run highlights shown, watch for Sweet N’ Low’s insane tornado suicide move, keeps going into the Mike Jones 1on1, then another freestyle – the king freestyle very crazy, and theres ALOT more. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone by over describing every scene, but this tape is serious, this is the first solo tape from a single player that I’ve seen and I was blown away, the sounds track includes slim thug, Mike Jones, Dipset, T.I , Sean Price & KC , Eric Sermon , Memphis Bleek and Game, the music made me get so hyped I had to clutch my basketball when watching…..
bonus features – Tru’s top ten crosses, Tru’s top ten moves, HIU footage, pepper freestyle, tru extra freestyle, mixtape trailer.
In short I give this tape a 10, there was nothing I didn’t like about this tape, I enjoyed the fact there was no talking, no mention of hate or anything like that , which has become common in most tapes, this tape is pure ball and I recommend copping it, to anyone that can, you wont be disappointed.
