Editorial Review

With the No Limit and Cash Money crews having permanently seared the once-ignored Deep South into the hip-hop map, Nelly arrives to make a mark for the heretofore uncelebrated St. Louis scene. After outlining the rules of the game from lifestyle (gats, grass, and sex) to wardrobe (he cuffs his jeans like Beaver Cleaver), the rapper offers scenario after scenario depicting the gangsta world as one big party; he and his crew seem much more interested in fellatio than shootouts. The title single, which preceded this CD's release by months, is the clear standout with its low-rider groove, but the midtempo R&B-flavored flows of "Utha Side," "Greed, Hate & Envy," and "Steal Da Show" are also seductive.--Rickey Wright ...

I remember this album when I was 13. I love this album,and it put St. Louis on the map. This album is tight. Nelly is rappin'the blues,and his music is a jazz form of hip-hop.Country Grammar is the country part in St. Louis of USA and the way they talk,dress,and their actions are all country. So join the people who appreciate this album-the new talk of the town. This album has been certified 9x Platinum. Remember,this was 2000-2001. ... Read more

Editorial Review

All the barking and growling in the world could not detract from the fact that DMX is a troubled, tormented soul. On And Then There Was X, the multiplatinum-selling Dark Man X uses his signature fragmented flow with its singsongy vocal inflections to preach, teach, and reveal. Melodramatic storytelling has always been his shtick, whether it's tales of robbing liquor stores, plotting violent murders, or teaching shorties the code of the streets. X's inner conflicts are laid out on "Angel," a dialogue between himself and his Lord, and his ability to acknowledge different perspectives of a situation (i.e., repercussions) on several songs add depth to his character. The anthemlike "What's My Name," with its affirmations "I have no friends" and "I'm not a nice person," proves that money, fame, and popularity do not translate into happiness for DMX. --Celine Wong ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Damn fine beats
DMX puts a funny skit into this one, and raps about all things hardcore (his life of course).That's to be expected, and he does it well, but what makes this cd great are the beats...it's pretty fun to blast while driving.It's popular music though and has mass appeal, which damages the cool factor??If you like hard lyrics you'll like the barking and cursing, if not then stay away.This one's for the men.Buy it.

This CD will never match up to his debut its still great. Its really personal and thats DMX is one of my favorite. But this CD was missing something. It was missing Damien. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Don't let the rough exterior and the propensity to rhyme about acts of violence and criminal activities fool ya. No sir, Ja Rule is a lover and girl he's gonna make you love him. Make you as in wear you down and render you defenseless against his almost nonstop and thereby "persuasive" presentations of the pros of loving a thug. He might be crude, he might be loud (hell is he loud) and his flow might make DMX's canine fixations seem like subtle artistry. But be he rapping or be he semi-sing-songy vocalizing, Ja Rule's brand of rough-and-tough love gets under your skin. OK, it also starts to get on your nerves, but what Mr. Rule lacks in finesse he makes up for in intensity. Musically, his sophomore CD, with its stutter-stop break-point beats and its rich, resonant sound is nothing to ignore. Which must be why the first single, the off-kilter "Between Me and You," is so successful. This isn't groundbreaking or even significant stuff, but Ja's raspy roar has a certain appeal. While said appeal is geared towards men in the joint and the women who stand by them, you can't hate on a guy for trying, in his own way, to show a little love in this cold, cold world. --Amy Linden ...

4-0 out of 5 stars ja RULES on this one
true i see how people say he started to become pop with this release and he started singing with lil mo and christina milian but everyone was feeling this. the two lead singles were hot but so were "love me hate me" with the sweet violins and keyboards and the bouncy beat, "f you" with the horns and the scratches that was a great track to ride to. "extasy" made you wanna dance", "watching me" was a hot intro, and the other tracks were pretty hot too. however, i don't like that track "if god was one of us". seriously that's so disrespectful to god to talk to him like that, but if i give props to it it's on the great beat. there were some filler songs here like the shade sheist collabo but this is still better than a b.g. or master p record anyday. now, before i go, i must ask a question to all the criticisers out there: i know many can't stand ja's singing (i personally don't mind it but i can see where it can become a nuisance) but singing love songs doesn't take away from you street cred. his crew whooped 50 physically and ja sold drugs. just keep that thought in mind that singing doesn't lower your cred

3-0 out of 5 stars worst JA album - too soft
Ja Rule had a hard @$$ debut which I consider a classic, then he dropped this soft @$$ album the next year.His worst one out of his 6 solo albums (as of 11/9/04).Has one classic and a few ok tracks but too many R&B collabo soft tracks w/ JA singing.Has about 5 of 13 songs on it worth listening to.Lil Rob & Irv produce 7, and Irv collaborate for one song each with: Trustylez, Reb, Ty Fyffe, Self, and Damizza does 1 himself.I wouldn't recommend this unless you like a lot of soft rap songs (It does have one of his hardest songs to date however).

4-0 out of 5 stars Rule 3:36 his sophomore release.
"Watchin me" starts the album off with a bang.Next is the best pop Ja Rule single "Between me and you" another good pop hit was the next song "Put it on me".Then comes "6 feet underground" wich is pretty good."Love me,hate me" is a nice track with some storytelling.I thought the Next song "Die5" would be bad I was wrong."F*** You" is not to bad."Extacy" is another standout."Its your life" is more of a happier song."I Cry" was also a single off the album and is not bad."One of Us" has a nice beat and has trumpeting of Ja Rule to say.The Last song on the album is "Rule wont die" he went the different route of his previous album but it works in the long run.

Editorial Review

Only an artist of Jay-Z's stature could have survived the indignity of In My Lifetime, Vol. 1, his stunningly poor second LP, and remain standing as one of the premier lyricists of his generation. Like Biggie did on Life After Death, Jay-Z diversifies his style here--with the Timbaland-laced "Nigga What, Nigga Who" and the dialogue "Coming of Age" (which revisits the young hustler from Jay-Z's first LP, Reasonable Doubt)--demonstrating that even when experimenting with flow, he can still crush his peers. Though the album falters notably at the end (the lazy funk of "Paper Chase," "Reservoir Dogs," and "It's Like That" could be safely cut without incident), Shawn Carter has nonetheless reclaimed his mantle as rap's leading don. --Jon Caramanica ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Vol.2: Jay-Z's Hottest Album
I can remember the summer when Vol. 2 was about to come out. I live in Brooklyn, so every car that would pull up to the light was playing this song. I could never make out what the little girl was singing, but I heard it so much I had to find out. It was the "Hard Knock Life" song that I was hearing.

Jay-Z was in his prime on this album. You can pop this in and let it play out. You don't have to skip to the next song. You will like all the songs on this album. This was a masterpeice. How could you say you are a true hip hop/rap fan if you don't have this whole album memorized? This is classic material.

I haven't been buying much music lately, but if I was building a collection, this would have to be the center peice. This album is great. I can't stress how much I respect this album. I've never listened and liked a Jay-Z album like I did this one.

I gotta give this one 5 stars. This album will be hard to out do. I don't think Jay-Z will ever make a better album than this one. I really wasn't that big on much of his albums after this. Vol. 3 was aight... but it was no Vol. 2.

Best Jay-Z album ever. One of the GREATEST hip hop albums of all time. If your not a fan of Jay-Z, but you are interested in his music and want to hear why Jay-Z is Jay-Z, this is the ideal album to buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars The album that saved his reputation
After going through the heavy criticism of Vol.1... Jay-Z came back with the Hard Knock Life, which many consider brought back his status as a top contender for the King Of The New York spot. What Life After Death did for Biggie is what Vol.2... did to Jay-Z. Many gems like "Hard Knock Life" which was produced by Hip Hop's finest producer the 45 King and "Nigga What, Nigga Who" which was produced by Timbaland with many more gems that made this album classified as Jay-Z's finest work.

5-0 out of 5 stars HIP-HOP CLASSIC.
This album is a hip hop classic. The production is brilliant and so is da flow. The best songs are CAN I GET A..., PAPER CHASE and MONEY AINT A THANG. This will be a classic and will be played as classic for years to come. Even though its old school still better than the sh--- out now. ... Read more

Editorial Review

It's fitting that the Kid Rock revival got started when the Beastie Boys featured him in their Grand Royal magazine--and not because the kid from Detroit shares their skin tone. Rock has often been compared with the early Beasties--the boys of "Fight for Your Right to Party" and "Brass Monkey," the boys no one ever thought would grow up. With lines like "I ain't straight outta Compton, I'm straight out the trailer" and "I started an escort service--for all the right reasons," it's obvious that Kid Rock doesn't aim to follow suit. But that's no hindrance to Devil--backed by the funky metal band Twisted Brown Trucker and special guests like blues vets Robert Bradley and Thronetta Davis, Rock is hosting one hell of an interesting party. Ultimately, Rock's party is great, schlocky fun, equal parts old Beasties and Sebastian Bach--making Devil a guilty pleasure, the Starship Troopers of hip-hop. --Randy Silver ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars You can't be thirteen forever, I suppose...
Hello, my name is Eggplant, and I was once a Kid Rock fan. It has been four years, eleven months, and eleven days since I last listened to this "album", and it has been four years, seven months, and fourteen days since I sold it on ebay. I admit, when I first got the CD, I was so excited about the gesture on the CD itself! I loved Kid Rock's immature bleatings about his ego, until one day, something happened...

I turned fourteen.

Thankfully, I grew up and out of the Kid-Rock-and-Limp-Bizkit-in-the-CD-Walkman-baggy-jeans-and-wallet-chain-wearing-skater-wannabe phase, and discovered bands with talent, like Pantera, Slayer, Fear Factory, et cetera. I realized that this album is just damn stupid, and not worth having, listening to, or even being anywhere near. Okay, I admit "Only God Knows Why" is actually okay, and might justify the one star Amazon forces me to give it, but otherwise... geez, someone's got some insecurity issues! (And not just me!) Anyway, Kid Rock is thankfully pretty much done, and we can put this fad in the past and move on. But I sometimes shudder over what might be over the horizon...

"Devil Without A Cause?" If a cause requires talent, than yeah, Kid Rock is indeed without a cause.

Florida-bred metal-rappers Limp Bizkit sold a million-plus records of their debut largely on the strength of a George Michael cover song. But the band indeed had "Faith" and the group's second outing proves that the Bizkit have the goods. Still, it seems as if boastful frontman Fred Durst is loading the band's deck again, this time by including scads of guest vocalists, such as Stone Temple Pilots' singer Scott Weiland, Method Man from Wu-Tang Clan, and Korn's Jonathan Davis. (In fact, Korn gave Limp Bizkit a leg up in the industry.) But the 16 diverse yet cohesive tracks on Significant Other don't need any help. Not as heavy as their mentors Korn--or as they are on their debut--Bizkit give Everlast a run for his money on the tuneful and appealing "Rearranged." "Just Like This" is another winning hip-hop and rock entry, while the amusing and memorable "Nookie" (as in "I did it all for the nookie") has self-deprecating lyrics not unlike the Offspring's "Self-Esteem." Bizkit segues with ease from pleasing rock and hip-hop amalgam to spooky Tool territory on "Don't Go Off Wandering" to moshable moments in the entreaty "Show Me What You Got." Significant Other may be hard to categorize, but it's easy to like. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

This album has it all. Angry blaring songs like "Break Stuff" to the cooler , more mellow ones such as "Re-arranged".I love this album.I still play it all the time.I've loved Limp Bizkit when they were real popular back in the day and I still do.I don't care if people think im uncool because of the music i listen to.

Overall I recomend buying this album.You will not regret it.

the music is bad hands down, but i think the name limp bizkit is cool for two reasons and both being very descriptive reasons of this music and the band members

1) limp: i'm sure all the members are limp and have to use tweezers as masturbation tools because their thingofabots are so small and limp.

2) bizkit: biscuits is another name for turds which can be easily compared to the music and intelligence levels of "bizkit" and his fellow band members.

Editorial Review

The rise of the Insane Clown Posse--or a group very much like them--was probably inevitable; somebody had to play the part of Howard Stern in the rap world. That it was two guys in clown makeup who rap--badly--over prerecorded tracks and spray their audiences with soda was a pure accident, brought about when their former record label dropped the act on the eve of the release of The Great Milenko. The Amazing Jeckel Brothers, their first proper follow-up album to Milenko, capitalizes on their notoriety; it features guests like the Jerky Boys and Ol' Dirty Bastard and issues challenges to MTV, Lollapalooza, and Kiss bassist Gene Simmons--whom ICP accuse of stealing their "shit" (though shtick would be a more appropriate word, and it was Simmons's in the first place). ICP stick with the formula on Jeckel Brothers that they've, um, perfected; it's not for everyone, but fans won't be disappointed. --Randy Silver ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Amazing Jeckel Brothers
The release of the Wicked 5th Joker's Card in June was ICP's answer to Hollywood Records dropping them when Milenko was released. It features tracks with Snoop Dogg and Ol' Dirty B*stard, and a skit from The Jerky Boys.

Intro-it's ok just some guy walking into a shop better then some of there intros 2/5

Jake Jeckel-not the best song the beat is nice but the song is short 2/5

Bring It On-nice beat but the lyrical content is not the best 3/5

I Want My Sh*t-One of my favorite songs on the album nice guitar and beat 5/5

B*tches- not my fav song really nasty but a good beat 4/5

Terrible-This is one of ICP's best songs talks about Kurt Cobain's suicide and Mike Jackson talks about up to date and not so up to date world events 5/5

I Stab People-I hate this song I always skip over it still stabbin is way better and longer 2/5

Another Love Song- Another great song one of there best and is really funny 5/5

F*ck The World- I dont really like this one but I like the beat Violent J is just about giving the finger to everyone 3/5

The Shaggy Show- A-lot of juggalos hate this song but I love it the skits are so funny and the beat is nice 5/5

Echoside- I hate this song im not very fond of it yet 2/5

Nothing's Left-A-lot of juggalos say that the last song on all the jokers cards are great and i agree with that this is a really good song with a good meaning 5/5

as you can see there is a-lot of fives witch is good but this is just one juggalos opinion you might think the opposite of what I think.

FINAL THOUGHT:This CD is AMAZING

5-0 out of 5 stars The 5th Jokers Card
The 1st week this was released it reached number 4 in the billboard charts with no help from radio and MTV. Could they top the infamous Great Milenko, me personally thinks that they never will, but this comes close.

Intro: Starts with a guy going into an antique store meeting the weird mysterious owner who shows him the light. gets u ready: 3/5

Jake Jeckel: Good beat, this introduces Jake Jeckel, nothing special: 2/5

Bring It On: Alright song, lyrics are ok, but the beat i hate: 3/5

I Want My S*it: Good storytelling by J it may vary with people if they like it or not: 4/5

Bitches w/ODB: The late ODB joins ICP here for a great nasty song about u guessed it women, i love this song, ICP gave a choice to the Juggalos if they wanted this song on the album or a song calledDead End wiv ICE T that song appeared on Psychopathics from outer space (get it)a funny skit wiv the Jerky Boys follows the song: 5/5

Terrible: Amazing song by ICP,wiv thought provoking lyrics, wacko jacko and his kiddie feeling ways, the drug fueled Kurt Cobains stardom after shooting himself, how come Eazy E never got the attention after his death and why America is kill crazy are mentioned in this song, one of the best ICP songs eva: 5/5

I Stab People: Short song about J stabbing people, i hate it, the song 'Still Stabbin' from the album 'Bizaar' is much betta: 2/5

Another Love Song: Classic ICP song here, the albums single, has a great beat and nasty lyrics, the first Love Song can b found on the Ringmaster album: 5/5

EveryBody Rize: Another great song, good beat and lyrics. also pokes fun at Kiss and Korn and many others: 5/5

Play With Me: This was for the Bride Of Chucky soundtrack, but didnt get on their for sum reason, kinda like a Toy Box 2, evil toys, the beat is good and lyrics r average: 3/5

Jack Jeckel: This 1 introduces Jack Jeckel: 2/5

F*ck The World: So many swear words in this one, its good and funny lyrics: 5/5

The Shaggy Show w/Snoop Dogg: Snoops 1st album is a classic but everything after, especially now is horrible, and on here he is still no good, this 6 min song is alright at sum parts, the skits are funny, its done in gameshow style, it varies with the person listening to it: 3/5

Mad Professor: Great song, about J making people from different body parts, its funny: 5/5

Assassins: Remake of the classic Geto Boys track, but ICP make it so fresh and their own song: 5/5

EchoSide: Nobody knew at the time but this was a Dark Lotus track when the members were supposed to be just Twiztid and ICP, good song: 4/5

Nothings Left: Taste, House Of Mirrors, Im Coming Home, Pass Me By and now this, every song that has appeared last on a ICP album have been brilliant, and this one is another cracker, the lyrics here are the best on the album and i love the chorus: 5/5

You need to listen 2 the sampler and cop this album, its great, i dont care what anybody thinks about ICP, they have always provided great music, people that say they are crap rappers and then buy an 50 Cent cd are joking their minds. Open your mind and for an hour or so let ICP take you on a crazy journey. later.

Ever heard of a Trinidadian dish called pelau? Well, mix anytype of food you can get your hands on: chicken, rice, onions,tomatoes... Stir all of these disparate parts up in a pot and enjoy.The Baha Men are Bahamians, not Trinidadians, but they utilize thisformula to create their unique brand of music. With its catchy "Woof!woof! woof!" chorus, the self-titled single will make you feel "Hot,Hot, Hot" like Arrow. Socaconnoisseurs might find it a bit disturbing that the Baha Men chose tocover this dated carnival anthem of 1998 (originally recorded byTrinidadian Anslem Douglas), but bounce-music audiences won't mind.Although none of the other tracks quite match that song's intensity,there are a good handful ("You All Dat," "Shake It Mamma," "You'reMine") that successfully mesh the popular music styles of the day (R&B,rap, pop) with the percussive junkanoo rhythms of the Bahamas. Theelectronic beats on "Summer of Love" and "You Can Get It" don't matchtheir organic island flows, and the lone ballad "Where Did I Go Wrong"doesn't fit in with the general feel-good mood of the album, but thisCD is filled with decent up-tempo party music for hot festival nights. --Dalton Higgins ...

This song is great because it reminds me of when i was watching basball and the mets were playing the yankees and it was cool. mike admit it you used to like this song alot and said its really good and cool and you were singing to it and your brother said it was cool it reminds me of when mike was cool and he wasnt a moron and he listened to me. it reminds me of when rossler listened to good music like limp bizkit and kid rock and music like dmx jadakiss and he was a big fan of grant hill who now plays for the orlando magicand is back to being the grant hill he was in the 90s. rossler and joey and mike all used to say i was cool and used to hang out with me and call me the leader and rossler said to me that ace was cool but now its like this, ace your retarded i hate you your annoying what ever happen to mike saying ace is cool and joey said ace your my best friend your really cool. but now joey is like "your gay and im a pimp" and im thinking wtf happend to this world????? Mike Joey Rossler, if your reading this, think about what you have done this past 4 years... think about what you have done to me and what you have said. just remember i was once the king of Woodhaven, just like TI is the king of the south and Lil Jon is the King Of Crunk. Ludacris used to be the king of the SOuth and ATL but TI overthrown him. i feel the same way because of what you fa*gots have done to me....

3-0 out of 5 stars Who cares if this is brilliant....
You listen to this kind of music to relax, have fun and lighten up a sad mood. Anyway to get to the review, this is just a fun song that everyone (myself included at one point) takes waaaay too seriously. Personally I prefer "Move It Like This" or "Best Years Of Our Lives" to this one, but this one's fun if you are sad or bored anyway. Junkanoo music is supposed to be fun not serious and that's what you're getting here. If you're looking for serious music, I'd suggest you look elsewhere.

1-0 out of 5 stars It finally happened...
I was flipping through channels today when I came across a most interesting newscast. It went something like this:

ANCHORMAN: We go to live to our own Stacey Cornbread, who is live at the local record store with some news about one-hit wonders, the Baha Men. Stacey?
STACEY (at record store, with huge line of 14-year-old kids): Tom, I'm standing here at [local record store], where almost every 14-year-old kid in the county is returning their copy of "Who Let The Dogs Out".
ANCHORMAN: Why do you suppose that is?
STACEY: Well, Tom, it seems that they kids that once liked this ungodly, absymal noisefest have grown up - and out of it.
ANCHORMAN: And only at 14, when most people are at their most vulnerable to "pop" music.
STACEY: That's right. Here now, we will interview this girl. Hello, what is your name?
GIRL IN LINE RETURNING HER COPY: Leslie.
STACEY: Leslie, why are you returning this album?
LESLIE: I just realized how corny, stupid, insipid, dumb, annoying, irritating, and ghastly this album really is.
STACEY: I see. Thank you. (listens to earpiece) Tom, I just recieved word that the RIAA has just certified this album TRIPLE BRONZE - over 3 million copies have been returned! It seems even the young kids who bought into this schlop in 2000 have grown out of it, and hopefully, will discover good music. [Like Radiohead. -ed] Tom, back to you.
TOM: Thank you, Stacey. After the break, can bees think? Studies confirm that no, they cannot.

That says it all.
