    Think of this as a run-of-the-mill Khaled album and that mill is still doing pretty awesome.

    Though its combative title suggests Khaled cares little for anybody's approval, Kiss the Ring ends up more of a formulaic slugging match than any collection of genuine rap prize-fighters really should.

    Unfortunately, Kiss the Ring often sounds like it was made just to vault the celebrity-status and net worth of the man on its cover.

    Khaled goes through his hip-hop Rolodex yet again and compiles a strong collection of MCs and producers to add some shine to his latest musical collage.

    Lacking any cohesion, Kiss The Ring is a series of single tracks that hit or miss.

    Kiss The Ring is brief and overrun with enough proven formulas and artists that the opportunity for a miss barely exists.

    Typical DJ Khaled release. There are a couple decent tracks, but the only really good track is "Hip Hop". Otherwise, the rest is skippable andTypical DJ Khaled release.
