    Ludacris is a true MC and even though this album is heavily geared towards reclaiming his spot on the radio, he executes the unoriginal content with original, witty and clever lyricism, something that can not be said about most "radio friendly" flash in the pan rappers. The production overall is average and the album does its job of being a summer banger for the cars and parties.

    Style over substance in my opinion, but there are some bangers, that's for sure.

    "How Low" can YOU go, luda? mildly entertaining but i hope luda can cut his losses on this one and move on to better, more sincere albums (ie. circa 2001, 2003). this one is both a reflection of the current as well as a warning of the future commercialization/ sellout corruption of hip hop. Can all the blame be on club culture? no, the activity is fine but i think there's a major problem"How Low" can YOU go, luda? mildly entertaining but i hope luda can cut his losses on this one and move on to better, more sincere albums (ie. circa 2001, 2003). this one is both a reflection of the current as well as a warning of the future commercialization/ sellout corruption of hip hop. Can all the blame be on club culture? no, the activity is fine but i think there's a major problem when songs that sing "my name is k-k-k-k-k-k-k-k" or "how low" appear on the top 10 of the mainstream garbage network and what not. Quit selling out you guys. get back to the days of BDP and KRS1. Expand

    Always the showman who sounds technically superior to most rappers but ultimately an artist whose craft is exposed to the mercy of fashion. Ludacris is generally one to follow rather than lead but he is still a true champion when writing hip-hop records. There is great enjoyment to be taken from his performance and his talent appeals to both 'ignorants' and 'intellectuals however the beatsAlways the showman who sounds technically superior to most rappers but ultimately an artist whose craft is exposed to the mercy of fashion.

  1. Limited and a little patched together, but if cheap thrills are what you’re after, this one puts the dirty back in dirty south.
  2. Most of these aren't exactly new subjects for Luda, but as ?always his gymnastic flow and irrepressible personality redeem more tracks than not.
  3. Some of the production work feels slapdash, as in the sopping-synth "I Know You Got a Man," and aside from the undeniable banger "How Low," it's hard to hear the next obvious hit on "Battle." But the album is another welcome occasion to listen to Luda enjoying the real love of his life--the sound of his own voice.
