  1. He still comes across much of the time like a less charismatic Nelly.
  2. If anything, Chingy has regressed since his debut, and his initially fresh style now sounds old.
  3. 60
    The most memorable songs on his third album are decidedly buzz killers. [Oct 2006, p.96]
  4. Aside from a few catchy club tracks, there is nothing all that exciting about Chingy's third album.
  5. Hoodstar only makes it all the more apparent that the St. Louis MC's overnight popularity was like lightning in a bottle.
  6. The majority of tracks scream "poor old bored celeb." [Nov 2006, p.139]
  7. Chingy just doesn’t have the charisma, or the skills, or even the production team necessary to make him at all interesting, much less enjoyable.
