    There's still lots of the nasty, freaky humor and grimy lyrics that make Ludacris so much fun.
  2. With his fashionably foul worldview, Ludacris could indeed be [Redd] Foxx's bastard son, and ''Word'' often seems like nothing so much as an extended Dolemite routine set to hip-hop beats.
  3. There's a more commercial edge to the beats, as well as a subversive edge you'd expect from an MC who's cribbed from Eddie Murphy routines.
  4. It's not exactly the most sophisticated rap album of the year... but with production by Swizz Beatz on "Cry Babies (Oh No)," the head-bobbing chorus for "Rollout (My Business)" and the smooth joint effort with Nate Dogg ("Area Codes"), the crass clown can be entertaining.

    Luda's second album is filled with filthy, funny and freaky rhymes sure to please any fan of humorous rap, with great beats to bounce to.

Area codes and Move **** are arguably the album's best songs. Full Review »

    I hate rap, and I hate this guy's message but I must say, he is SOO much better than the others out there (DMX, Dre, and especially 50 cent)
