The minute Beelow opens his mouth, it is obvious that the Louisiana rapper is part of hip-hop's Dirty South school. From the gruff barking style (which has been used by everyone from Mystikal to Lil' Jon to Petey Pablo) to the production style and the chanted choruses, everything about this 1999 release says Dirty South in no uncertain terms. The fact that Beelow provides hardcore rap in a recognizably southern way hardly makes him unique — the Dirty South field became extremely crowded in the '90s, and there was as much competition in the Carolinas and Georgia as there was in Tennessee, Alabama, and Louisiana. The influence of New Orleans rapper Master P and his No Limit stable is quite strong on Ballin' 4 Billions; when Beelow raps about the Louisiana thug life on explicit numbers like "Thuggin' in da South," "Bitch Made N****z," and "I Wish U Would," he doesn't do anything groundbreaking. His player/baller/hustler rhymes don't say anything that countless other Louisiana rappers hadn't already said in the '90s, and the beats aren't groundbreaking either. But if Ballin' 4 Billions was among the more derivative Dirty South efforts of 1999, Beelow still deserves credit for providing his share of likable grooves. Ballin' 4 Billions won't win any awards for originality or for pointing Southern rap in any new directions — Beelow is a follower rather than a leader — but the CD's best tracks are at least catchy. Although not one of the Dirty South's essential purchases, Ballin' 4 Billions is a competent, if uneven, debut that does have its moments.
