Yeah, baby, yeah...................

  • Dec 5, 2005
Not a lot of rap artist can come album after album with the same "thing" about them that made you like them in the 1st place. LUDA keeps you interested without changing. This is one of Ludacris's best albums.

The production and lyrics were on point, and it just had all the makings for a good album. Now, Luda being from the South, never really adapted a "Crunk" style in his rhymes, he always had punch lines, or should I say knockout lines. The intro said, in plain terms, that he's back and he's here for the crown. It's not an album that's as easy to dive into than his previous ones but if you give it some time it will warm up to you. Songs like "Number One Spot" and "Get Back" are very up-tempo songs with a lot of energy. He then slows down with songs like "Child of the Night" and "Pimpin All Over the World". Ludacris tries something new with "Blueberry Yum Yum", your stereotypical "get high" song, with Sleepy Brown for the hook and the deep bass beat and the synthesizer making a unique melody.

To those who don't like BlueBerryYumYum (or said it was retarded), it's a shame that when someone tries something like this you are so quick to bring it down, I just love the way it flow's.

Needless to say, this is a solid album which should be liked by all and is a must have for Ludacris fans.

About this album


Think what you want about Ludacris, but no one can deny that he is hip-hop's king of choruses. Luda's hooks are big, brassy, and loud; they're tailor-made for club crowds and radio programmers. Some songs, like "Get Back," practically sound like one long hook, every line a potential anthem. At times, it's easy to forget that Ludacris knows how to rhyme too. His taffy-pull verbal style isn't as lyrically intricate asNas's (who appears on "Virgo") and can't matchTrick Daddy's thuggish bravado ("Hopeless"), but few other rappers exude his level of charisma. On "Number One Spot," Luda acts like he's strong-arming his way to the top, but it's really charm that propels the charge. Even on a song like "Two Miles an Hour," dedicated to "those who spend more on their car than their relationship," he's more clever than clownish in selling the concept.Red Light Districthas its share of filler, but, track for track, Ludacris still delivers satisfaction.--Oliver Wang
