this is how i rated traxs off BWS/willennium n code red ..from a few years ago....

Y'all Know - 4
The beats a bit slow and the bragging becomes a bit tiresome..if he does this sort of track he needs to speed it up a la im all that n im comin..lyrics pretty weak..chorus reasonable annoying..chorus goes on way 2 long at the end..i liked the beat boxing though dope..

Getting' Jiggy Wit It – 7
Tight beat nice scratching..great rap..dope lyrics..dare you to not dance to this one..

Corny lyrics..nice flow though..larry blackmon vocals okay..towards the end of the song it becomes annoying
Chasing Forever - 6
Reasonable beat..nice lyrics..nice chorus

Don't Say Nothin' - 7
Dope beat..nice lyrics..definitely gives it to the haters..great background vocals on this..disappointing when will gets off track and just starts goin on abt how good he is though..nice scratching!

Miami - 6
Nice beat..but nowhere as good as the original..good topic n lyrics

Yes Yes Y'all - 4
Does not make the most of camp lo..average beat..not great flow..not great lyrics..another annoying chorus that does not stand up to repeated listens..again the last minute of just repeated chorus is too much

I Loved You-8
Starts off to a fiery start..with wills lyrics comin straight in..dope beat..excellent chorus/singing..change up the usual format of verse chorus verse chorus. Real feeling in wills voice which is lacking from many other rappers..big will feels more like fresh prince on this track..nice lyrics, nice flow

It's All Good - 8
The classic ol skool sample..dope lyrics.. excellent 1st verse!..good scratching..best chorus of big willie style..great when the female vocals come in..excellent scratching needs to be turne up louder though..great end to the track..pump this 1 loud

Just The Two of Us - 7
Nice beat..nice lyrics..good vocals..excellent chorus..good topic

Pretty good bouncy beat..very much the current sound of the time..reasonable lyrics..another very annoying chorus..nice tempo to the track..left eye with a nice rap

Men In Black – 6.5
Nice chorus..nice beat..nice rap

Great beat ..good use of sample..excellent rap from will..high energy..chorus pretty simple but it works..nice use of “ooohhsss”..excellent album opener..lyrics are a real highlight here

Will 2K – 4.5
Pretty much a throwaway millennium anthem..lyrics..rap..sample kinda tired..not bad chorus..but this track does not last at all
Freakin It - 3
One of the most overused samples..extremely annoying chorus..very repetitive..and the bragging rap is not memorable..in stark contrast to im comin
Da Butta - 4
Average beat n loop..horrible chorus..not wills greatest rap..reasonable 1st rap from lil kim..the song then degenerates..thank god it only lasts 2:58

Excellent track..excellent topic/subject/message..great chorus..lovely use of orchestra/strings..great sort of electronic type of beat..good to hear vocals from jeff..nice rap delivery from will “jazzy we got a bond like we was in vietnam (word up)” the track really builds momentum..and to a climax in the final verse.. the delivery and response (uh ha) really works

the way i rated them was compared to wills other traxs..so i thought will2k was a 4 if the rain was a 10..

but yeah i agree chasing forever is good..but the problem is trackmasterz completely jacked a great stevie wonder song.. in fact in all of big willie style trackmasterz just take classic songs from the 80s..and completely rip em off..the originals sound better..and trackmasterz add nothing to them..no originality or anything
