The Loco Rundown's Music Video Rating System
Two Thumbs Up: The beat wasn't very complex, but it had a rich sound accentuated by heavy bass that pumped up the listener's energy. It was a definite attention-grabber as soon as it started.
Thumbs Up: The lyrics were catchy and basic, which made them mainstream enough to appeal to a larger audience.
Thumbs Down: There was virtually no content in the lyrics. The writing was very elementary and basic. For a song called "Venom," where was the actual venom in the lyrics?
Thumbs Up: Like the lyrics, the delivery and tone was catchy - an "earworm" for sure.
Thumbs Down: It sounded like he was crying the whole song, like someone just bullied him before he recorded the song. Additionally, when he began rapping fast, it didn't sound like he was actually saying any real words.
Visual Production Value:
Two Thumbs Down: All he did was stand in front of the mic. There was nothing eye-catching or captivating that kept the viewer interested in what was going on in the video. Why even make a video at all at that point?
Production Quality/Over All Mix:
Two Thumbs Up: Everything was mixed well. There was a stellar balance between the vocals and the beat.
