Typical “ghetto”, and “thug” related songs like “Catch The Bullet”, and “Three Glocks Up” may tune out some listeners, in fact many listeners who consider this album, may tune out before listening due to the titles of the tracks; big mistake, as that’s like judging a book by its cover. Young Gatt is a talented artist for many reasons, one of which, he has the ability to write rhymes meant for the youth gone wild, but that all youth can relate. Young Gatt tends to rhyme more with a west coast style, but he comes with an intensity, and array of good music all will enjoy.
L.O.S. needs to be centered out to be given recognition for the outstanding beats he created on 9 of the tracks, Knucks needs to be credited for providing this albums best beat on “Youth Gone Wild“, and other beat miners such as Syntax, and Smokewave also need to be mentioned for their great contributions. Triple Nine Records also deserves a great degree of recognition for putting this album together.
This album may not be appreciated to its fullest extent from some fans, as if you really dislike Master P, and like artists, then you probably wont tune in long enough to appreciate “Youth Gone Wild“. “Youth Gone Wild” also isn’t the most metaphorical & complex album in terms of lyrics. Young Gatt keeps it real, concise, and simple, which greatly compliments his “verbal emotions”, as well as there ease to touch fans. Another critique directed to this album is that its overall sound quality isn’t as intense equally through-out the album, and there are a couple tracks such as “Catch The Bullet”, and “Trust NoOne” that could have turned out better. These tracks seam less intense when compared to the other cuts on the album; however, they are still a worthwhile listen.
The number one point fans should remember in regards to this album is that you don’t have to be a ghetto super star to enjoy this album, in fact you don’t even have to live in an urban area, or be a youth gone wild. Instead you simply need to be in a mood to be relaxed, and listen. Young Gatt is a talented artist, and “Youth Gone Wild” is a great album fans will enjoy.
