5.0 out of 5 stars The Block Got They Eyebrows Down..., Oct. 26 2003
This review is from: Chicken-N-Beer (Audio CD)
Ludacris, the ATL DJ turned rap phenomenon, drops his third highly anticipated album 'Chicken & Beer'. After his earlier success with DTP leading the way on the 2 Fast 2 Furious soundtrack and the single 'Act A Fool', Ludacris doesn't disappoint. Ludacris has the personality and charisma that makes him instantly likable. He has a different flow on each song and accentuates his WORDS to let you know he has confidence in his rhymes. And he should. Lyrically adept at talking about women and throwing game, and equally adept at dropping some fire for the underground. He was taken off the Pepsi contract earlier this year and one of his concerts was cancelled due to his 'explicit lyrics'. He also had that surprise concert at Clark Atlanta University where they wouldn't let him curse. Eager to let out his anger, he bashes O'Reilly on several songs and has increased his tales about females.
You know Ludacris will get the clubs popping with anything he releases because he has so much energy. The Southern Fried Intro is just straight hotness. Ludacris gets with his double time flow on this and COMPLETELY RIPS IT. That's how you supposed to start off an album. Stand Up & P. Poppin (Luda used a House Party reference in there from Kid) are easily club bangers but other than that, there's not another club song. Surprisingly Ludacris laid it back a little on this album. These tracks are made for riding. 'Hard Times' which features Eightball & MJG, Diamond In The Back ( which samples that William DeVaughn - Be Thankful ), Hip Hop Quotables (which screams Erick Sermon's signature style), and Teamwork are some chilled out tracks very different from anything Luda has previously done. He also has some gangsta tracks on here such as Eyebrows Down, and We Got, that has Chingy really ripping it, showing why he was signed in the first place (with production by DJ Paul). Splash Waterfalls is his song about the you know what. And it's really a great song. But they really show out on the pimpalistic 'Hoes In My Room' which just HAD to feature Snoop. It just had to...the beat screams Snoop. And the chorus to this song is one of the catchiest of the year. You will definitely be singing along on this song. Another amazing song is Screwed Up feat. Lil Flip. This song has that syrupy Lil Flip Texas sound to it ( a little like a carnival or circus ) and once again the chorus is superior with the little 'F You' chant.
Ludacris definitely delivers on this album. This album is currently tied with Back For The First Time as his best album. You can play this song all the way through just chillin and you ain't even gon have to change a track. The only letdown on this album comes from the skits that wish they were funny. Without those this album is the truth and I definitely recommend this one right here. Pick it up!
