  • Summary: Janet Jackson, Nate Dogg and R. Kelly guest on the St. Louis rapper's second album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 9

    The lack of pretense on his second album makes him an approachable Everypimp, and he gets nothing but love from [his] guests. [Dec 2004, p.138]
  2. The kind of slick, articulate boogie rap that may get Nelly to wondering if the Lou is big enough for the both of them. [19 Nov 2004, p.82]
  3. More consistent and satisfying than its predecessor. [14 Nov 2004]
  4. 60
    More solid than spectacular. [Jan 2005, p.83]
  5. It's not that the album isn't good, it's that it pails in comparison to "Jackpot."
  6. The constant talk of expensive cars, gyrating women and endless parties quickly becomes redundant--and boring.
  7. Jackpot is superior in every aspect.

    This is a good album, nice pop mc rhymes, and great choruses from chingy here. An enjoyable album no doubt. the highlight being 'I really dont care'. This coming from a hardcore rap fan of canibus, mos def, del, nas etc... you hip hop heads need to open your ears and minds and listen to more trust me. just 'cos it blings and is commercial doesn't mean it lacks content. Peace. Expand

    Pathetic commercial pop rap!We have artists liek Talib Kweli,Gagstarr,Common and Dilated Peoples who don't get recognised for their art.Having heard this album,I was disgusted.Chingy is clearly and obviously unskilled as an MC,has poor,contrived lyrics and tries to sound illiterate. Expand
