  1. Flo Rida boasts an adroit double-timed flow, but his greatest achievement is his understanding of how to stay in the background, never overwhelming the electro-laced tracks.
  2. You won't leave R.O.O.T.S. knowing much about Dillard the man, but you'll probably think Rida the rapper is an excellent--if eventually exhausting--party guest.

    R.O.O.T.S. is a solidification of identity. And when you’re trying to keep yourself in the game, sometimes that’s all a sophomore album has to be.
  4. Not once does Flo Rida overpower his reference points, making him a rarity: an entertainer wholly without ego, a phantom presence on his own songs.
  5. The problem is that he shows no growth--besides realizing, along with his producers, that if you throw every hook known to man into the pop ocean, you are bound to catch something.
  6. His genius lies in pitching his records just right: he injects these songs with enough grit to interest hip-hop fans, without scaring the pop audiences his catchy hooks are designed to ensnare. It's ruthlessly effective, though difficult to love.
  7. Heavy on aspiration, light on inspiration on rapper's second outing.

    To put it in simple terms-The featured guests offer catchy hooks over flo rida's whack rhymes!! Even when he is trying to kick knowledge To put it in simple terms-The featured guests offer catchy hooks over flo rida's whack rhymes!! Even when he is trying to kick knowledge in songs like "Never" He sounds unreal and boring. The song "Sugar" features a melody which is similar to "Disturbia" by Rihanna. To put it simply...this is more of a pop album then Rap/Hip Hop. Do yourself a favor and pick up Nas's "Lost Tapes" "STill matic" "God's son". Expand

    I'm sorry a 63, this has to be one of the worst albums I've heard in a very long time. Flo Rida has taken advantage of one, good I'm sorry a 63, this has to be one of the worst albums I've heard in a very long time. Flo Rida has taken advantage of one, good hit single, other than that, his "music" is utter crap. Expand
