4-0 out of 5 stars One ingredient missing in an otherwise perfect stew
Where do you go after Aquemini, an album that had it all. Witty Lyricism, Social commentary, rich music and an undeniable chemistry between two clearly different personalities. For most artist, nowhere, but these cats were able to take it one step further with Stankonia which added pop appeal to the mix while continuing to push further musically (B.O.B). Surely they couldn't take it further than Stankonia but with Speakerboxx/Love Below they did just that. This time they highlighting the multiple personalities that the group has. Allowing Andre 3000 to really do his thing.
4-0 out of 5 stars [3.5]--Nope I'm not bored Big Boi...............I'm not Bored.
I've been listening to this album on and off for the past week and a half and in my opinion, this album is really good. I've always admired Outkast's originality: their music never sounds like anything anyone else has made or is making. "Idlewild", the musical companion to their movie of the same name, is no different but not as good as Speakerboxx/The Love Below. But it is still a very good album due to its style and funk. Dre and Big Boi only share about 3 songs in the whole album, and those 3 songs are amazing.
5-0 out of 5 stars Innovative
Outkast is the best. This is what rap needs more of. They don't talk about what they got and brag about their struggles feeling sorry for themselves, they just rap, and rap good. I like how they modernize the old blues style beats and make them good... it's like a new style of music kinda and it's tight. Outkast better win some awards for this. I definately recomend this to anyone who appriciates real rappers and rap as a form of art. ... Read more

Editorial Review

At a time when experimentation is taboo in most overground rap, that’s all Outkast seem intent on executing. Firstly, this double CD has no cohesive link, other than the fact that it sounds like a pair of solo albums stitched together to demo exactly how Andre’s yin works to augment Big Boi’s yang. Andre 3000’s Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Outkast's Album
I have been an Outkast fan for almost 10 years. I have got every album they released since Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik (which was hard to find in France), released in 1993-1994 in France.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
Outkast's latest release, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is a split album, with Andre 3000 and Big Boi each given essentially one album each to fill up with what they want.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outkast Does It Again - Another Classic
Another 5-Star Classic from the hottest duo in the game. Standout tracks: So Fresh, So Clean - Ms. Jackson - Spaghetti Junction -but the single B.O.B. steals the show - so fresh and clean itself you might put it on loop for a few days before you listen to the rest of the album. This CD a definite must for any music collection regardless of your musical taste.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the decades best (so far)
It is a testament to Outkast's greatness that they made a cd that should be on many critics top 50 list of the decade, one that made many "best of" lists in the year it was released, and it's not even their best work (you will have to pick up 1998's Aquemini for that pleasure).But Stankonia does deserve its praise and place among great cds both within and outside of itsbroad rap genre.This record reminds me a great deal of the Clash's London Calling, a cd that came out twenty years earlier, if not in sound but in style and spirit. 4-0 out of 5 stars Its Real Good, Just Not Like their Prior Music
I Love the album but it shouldnt take people by suprise cuz thats what Outkast are known 4. But its not as good or as bad as there music before this album its just that there music grows with them, i mean artist tend 2 develope and evolve there music 2 a further level, its just some fans arent ready 4 change and others are. its also 2 the people who say sellouts, i dont c them not keeping it real, just trying 2 extend their flavor, so aside from that the album comes with classics, like B.O.B., So Fresh So Clean, Mrs Jackson, and all the rest are just str8 solid 4's outta 5. great album. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An Explosion of Great Music
I recommend this LP to anyone who likes good music. No not just Hip Hop music, I mean all great music. You'll appreciate the musical creativity and the well crafted lyrics as well. I can't stress it enough, this is a must. You'll never get tired of listening to it and it'll get better as the years go by. A++

5-0 out of 5 stars That's Outkast for ya.
There's hundreds of reviews stating why the album is so good already, so all I wanna say is good job guys! A+++++

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfection
This is the best album by Outkast. That alone is reason enough to make it an automatic purchase. But not only is it the best album by the best hip-hop duo ever, it is one in a handful of the most important rap albums made in the last 15 years. The lyrics, beats, and overall vibe of the album transcends music as a whole. It's an experience, if you will, that can connect to the core of every human, no matter what your race, religion, financial status, or walk of life. In the mist of this, however, Outkast stays true to who they are and their dirty south roots. Both rappers were at their peaks, musically, at this point in their lives and each brought different and amazing skill sets to the table to combine and create this masterpiece. Big Boi never wavers, always bringing the truest and purest street speak to your ears, keeping the thug in the album and the streets the object of everything he says. And Andre brings the creativity and the style to the album, meshing with Big Boi in a symbiotic cacophony of musical favors and styles. And not to dis Big Boi, but Andre may actually be the most underrated rap artist in the history of the genre. If I'm making the starting line up for a hip-hop all-star team it would go something like this: Jay-Z, 2Pac, Nas, Chuck D, and Andre 3000 (with the Wu Tang Clan and Biggie coming off the bench). That's how much I think of Andre. He reaches out and demands your attention with every word he speaks, telling you exactly how it is and how he sees the world, with a flow almost poetry-like in nature. When we look back 100 years from now, in this era of hip-hop, people will see this album and hear the lyrics of Andre (as well as Big Boi) and realize what true hip-hop was and meant at that point in history. With so much crap being produced over the last few years in rap, particularly in commercial hip-hop, this album is breath of fresh air that will always remain relevant and never become dated. It is a true testament to the greatness of hip-hop as hip-hop is supposed to be. This is the best cd I own.

5-0 out of 5 stars They just kept getting better...
After their first release came out I was convinced that I would not hear them reach that peak again. I am so glad I was wrong. Just as creative as their 1st, the beats are imaginative and the lyrical abilities both MC's display is nothing less than perfect. If you could have only one OUTKAST record, this would be it! Peace.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's Just Two Dope Boyz In A Caddillac (Rating: 9 out of 10- -4.5 stars)
Damn, seeing that Outkast had a movie and a new album out, I realized that I haven't reviewed not only one of their albums except their greatest hits album. Outkast has really represented the hometown since '93 when V103 (ATLiens know this station) used to bump "Player's Ball" on the radio airwaves. And "Southerplayaisticmuzik" back in mid '94 help place Atlanta on the map. Two years later, they come out with their sophomore album "ATLiens" in Sept 1996.
5-0 out of 5 stars True Dirty South
In the last few years Outkast may have alienated the bulk of their original audience but there's still no denying how truly magnificent this album is. Amongst my many many records there are a select few that need to be replaced every couple of years because they are so over-played that they become physically unlistenable. This is one of them. Big Boi and Dre establish themselves as Atl's finest MCs, the production is mellow gold and the overall vibe is just outstanding. Tracks like 'Two Dope Boys', 'ATLiens' and 'Wheelz of Steel' are among my favorite rap songs of all time. Air-tight flows and beats that make your head bob and your speakers purrr with bowel-obstructing basslines; this album is right up there with fellow mid-90s classics like Reasonable Doubt, Stakes is High, Beats Rhymes and Life and Labincalifornia. Don't sleep on this.... and when you're done congratulating yourself for (re)discovering this masterpiece jump forward a couple years and cop their almost-as-classic album Aquemini. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Git Up, Git Out....
And Git Somethin! One of the finest from the southern lyricists OUTKAST. Big Boi and Andre both come correct w/rapid fire flows and rhymes that'll simply just snap your neck. The beats are amazing and still hold strong today. An essential record for all collections of music. A+

5-0 out of 5 stars a piece of the durty south at it's best!
AT FIRST, WHEN I HEARD FIRST THESE BOYS, I WAS LIKE, "NAH, NOT FEELING THEM". THEN AFTER I BORROWED THE ALBUM FROM SOMEOME AND LISTENED TO IT, I WAS LIKE, "THIS ALBUM'S TIGHT! I GOTS TO COP IT!" THE TIGHT TRACK ON THIS ALBUM TO ME IS "GIT UP, GET OUT", THAT SONG TELLS IT LIKE IT IS, GIPP AND C-LO WERE JUST THE XTRA FIREPOWER ON THIS ALBUM. A TRU CLASSIC BY 2 OF THE BEST MC'S FROM ATL, GA!

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic debut
I try not to throw around the word classic too much but Outkast's 1994 debut probably deserves it's place amongst the best hiphop albums of all time.I didn't really check out Southernplayalistic.. until recently and not being a fan of Outkast's recent work, I wasn't really expecting to like this so much.I'm also not a fan of Southern hiphop, in fact I would go as far as to say the majority of it is absolute garbage, so this was a pleasant surprise, and it's the best hiphop album i've heard form down south.

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.Read more

I listened to this album and I actually felt cancer forming in my ear drums. Nelly is wack as hell period. He is the modern day version of MC HAMMER. Take a look at the music he is making now. This album is commercial as hell but when you slide down Nelly's resume it gets even more commercial. I mean how low can you go? Country grammar has some decent beats that get professionally wasted but the number one beat waster in the world. Nelly is the WORST rapper actor to ever walk this earth. What we need to do to people like this is to yank him off stage and tar and feather this klown. Check out real hip hop like Mos Def and Immortal technique.

1-0 out of 5 stars What's all this?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Remember the days when we were punks and we'd gather 'round the phonograph and listen to some Puccini on the old Edison cylinders? They held up to 4 minutes of music! Count 'em, 4 minutes! Then that hippie opera singer Enrico Caruso came along and all the young punks would listen to him, including myself. He was quite the singer. When I was a young kid though, the only form of music we had were the concerts. I remember seeing Franz Liszt play the piano in concert, quite an amazing virtuoso, and Johann Strauss Jr. conducting his orchestra, those were the days.
1-0 out of 5 stars Another round of this...
Nelly's sophomore album was just as bad as his first one. The song Hot In Herre was a decent lead off single, so I thought that he might have came to his senses a little bit. Boy was I wrong. More singing and this time with Kelly Rowland from Destiny's Child on the song Delimma and a song with Justin Timberlake. Now he makes a somewhat attempt to impress me by taking Beanie Siegel's Roc Tha Mic (Remix) and puts it on his CD, not to mention taking a shot a hip hop legend KRS-One. Another track worth listening to is #1 and possibly the only song that he has made by himself worth listening to. Everything else, just a big no no. Once again he has appealed himself to the people who hardly listening to rap, because I even hear that song with Kelly Rowland on oldies radio stations. This right here has got to stop, because I had enough of it. ... Read more

Digable Planets deliberately disavowed the toughness of hip-hop culture: the trio's leader called himself Butterfly, his foil Ladybug purred like Eartha Kitt, and they produced hooks out of lines like "We're just babies, man." Despite occasional flashes of sorrow (like the pro-choice recitation "La Femme Fétal"), the group's happy and laidback on this debut, with tracks made out of old jazz records and finger-snaps, and words that draw on 50s hipster slang.

5-0 out of 5 stars (10 out of 10) One Of My Inspirational Albums
Nate Dog is wrong. Although ATCQ's "People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths Of Rhythm" was a dope album, this is not a pale copy of that album, and Butterfly doesn't sound like a wack version of Q-Tip. "Reachin' (A New Refutation Of Time And Space)" hangs on a total different level than the Tribe's first album.
5-0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and classic debut
In 1993 Digable Planets gave the world music like it had never seen before, establishing themselves as hip hop's most forward thinking collective and changing the face of the genre. "Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space)" is an amazing debut album from the Brooklyn trio of Ladybug, Butterfly, and Doodlebug. While groups like A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, and Gang Starr had fused jazz and hip hop before, Digable Planets took it the farthest, using full length instrumental breaks, live instrumentation, and a conceptually jazzy feeling that remains constant through this and their equally amazing sophomore album, "Blowout Comb". The music is amazing, it's the true beauty of Digable Planets. Their lyricism is also so smooth though. They rap abstract thoughts but also tell of experiences and their hometown. The trio has the ability to paint pictures in your mind, they're quite talented at it. They have beautiful subtle voices that mesh so well with jazz music, be it just talking or rapping. Their chemistry is also quite remarkable. "Reachin'..." is an album I highly recommend to all fans of jazz, hip hop, and all in between.
4-0 out of 5 stars Blow Out Comb
I don't understand how some one would diss Digable Planets for A Tribe Called Quest, manifestings the Seven And the Cresent if overstand! But you just understand, I love them both and I hope they make a come back just for a little while.

Following their ascension from the Atlanta music scene in 1994, Outkast have spent the greater part of a decade creating innovative and challenging music that disproves the persistent rumor of hip-hop's imminent demise. That's because Andre 3000 and Big Boi are artists of the first order. Coming off a run of four critically acclaimed albums, plus a successful collaboration with their extended clan, the Dungeon Family, Big Boi and Dre present a collection of their greatest hits, which includes three previously unreleased tracks. Highlights among the older material include the original (non-album) version of their first-ever single, "Playa's Ball"; Read more

If you're a hardcore OutKast fan, you already own this LP as well as all the others (or at least your personal favs since none of their offerings are exactly the same).
5-0 out of 5 stars Hey man, this is cool
I'm not a rap person so I didn't know this was a Outkast greatest hits, I saw it had Ms. Jackson and it was $7 so I picked it up. I have since picked up speakerboxx/the love below and loved that even more. outkast isn't your typical rap, which mostly is bland and uncreative, this stuff crosses genres and races. this hard rocker likes these cats very much

4-0 out of 5 stars Good collection
This CD has a lot of great tracks and makes a good addition to some Outkast fan collections.The best tracks on it are probably BOB and Whole World, but it's strong as a whole.Rosa Parks definitely deserves mention, too because it's got a fantastic beat. The CD might be worth 5 stars, except that it is just a collection of a lot of stuff most of us fans have already.But if you're new to Outkast and looking for a first CD to get, this is where to start.

5-0 out of 5 stars Too Short...Too Hype!
This album is by far one of the greatest "Explicit Lyrics" Albums to date! Deep bass and mellow grooves. This album was not allowed in my house, I smuggled it in; with no regrets! Great CD!

5-0 out of 5 stars Any Rap fan will love this album
All I have to say is great CD. The only thing which is my personal preference is the effects he put on the song "Oakland". Thats just me personally.. Even with that, the CD still with no doubt gets 5 stars. There are not many CD's that you can ride the whole CD but "life is too short" you can. Every single song on the CD is good. Obviously freaky tales, i aint trippen, and life is too short are the best songs. All the others are good too. If you can get this on CD the bass quality is great. The whole CD hits really hard and has a clean bass sound suprisingly considering that the CD is from the 80's. Anyway, another one of my favorite too short ablums. For every Too Short review check out my other reviews

5-0 out of 5 stars A very groovy oldschool slow rap album - very influential in its day and certainly creative - you'll probably like it!
Too $hort's "Life Is...Too $hort" was such an influential album when it came out in the 80's. Too $hort wasn't a great rapper in terms of delivery, but the beats, the grooves and his lyrics were all amazing and new. He essentially created the "slow rap" genre. This is definitely an extremely groovy album that makes for good background music as well. You could practically play this for anyone and they'd probably like it a lot. The beats may not be as heavy hitting as some other rappers, but they're still really good (simple but effective). Too $hort has a very simple delivery which gives him an odd charm - he makes it seem like anybody can rap. The other great thing about him is his lyrics which are always fun to listen to but aren't necessarily about much. He somehow manages to catch your attention really well. Overall this is just a really original and different rap album - it's historical influence definitely adds to its rating. I don't think mainstream rap fans will like it, but those with an open-mind will like it a lot! Highly recommended!

Editorial Review

New Orleans and Atlanta both have mega-cliques holding down their local rap reputations. Well, Memphis, Tennessee, has one too. The Hypnotize Minds label, home of the Three 6 Mafia, has been wreaking havoc on local dancefloors (with tracks like the Mafia's 1996 underground smash, "Tear Da Club Up") since 1993. Veterans of lyrical disorder, this group is well known for its slasher-flick lyrical content (cartoon violence, misogyny). Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not Three 6 Best
When the smoke clears is a good album but not three 6's best. They are still miles ahead of everyone else in the rap industry. Best songs are Just Another Crazy Click w/ Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid, Who Run It, Whatcha Know w/ Big Gipp

5-0 out of 5 stars sippin on some sizzurp (4.5 stars)
at 22 tracks you can't put this album at the illmatic level of classic as there is obviously some filler in there, but when it's good it's very, very good.
5-0 out of 5 stars The best Three 6 mafia album EVER!
I just got this album last week, and to me this is their best CD. It was way better than Most known Unknown and it has better songs than Da Unbreakables. My favorite songs are 44 killers, Sippin on soime syrup, Weak azz b****, Jus like us, Mafia N*****, F*** yall h***, Tounge ring, Barrin you b******, Watcha know, Act like you know me, Touched wit it, M.E.M.P.H.I.S., Just anotha crazy click, Who run it and Put ya signs. If you like their older Cd's you'll love this one. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Silkk the Shocker isn't the most gifted of the Miller brothers (Master P and C-Murder are his siblings), either in his generic-as-they-wanna-be lyrics or in his lumpy-like-day-old-oatmeal flow. Yet the hits keep coming, as the solid if uneventful Beats by the Pound production crew provides enough bouncy loops and catchy choruses to keep Silkk's head above water. Most notable are the down-tempo stories related on "Give Me the World" and "Mama Always Told Me." But when it comes to No Limit, an ounce of bounce is worth far more than a pound of gloom; it's "I'm a Soldier," the token posse cut on the record, that achieves its purpose best. Laced with a quick-paced, raw funk, it reaffirms the universal particularities of the NL sound. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Getting better...
When you look up the word "versality" in the dictionary, you'll see Silkk the Shocker's portrait right o tnext it. Charge it 2 da game, Silkk's second album, proves without a doubt that he's not a one-hit wonder and is able avoid the sophomore jinx that has plagued many artists in the music industry. His flow is unpredictable and varies from track to track which keeps the listener curious on what Silkk might to do next.For example "Give me the world", we find Silkk to be aggressive as his desire for money and power continue to intentsify while "Who can I trust?" has Silkk in a state of confusion as he uncovers the truth on whether the person he knows is really a friend or foe. Then there's "All night long" where he's laid back and chillin', which is ideal for party or while you're cruising in your ride. Being honest with him is important in "You ain't got to lie to kick it" proving that you don't need to be rich and flashy to be his friend. It doesn't stop there, a West Coast and Ditry South collbration is put together as Silkk teams up Death Row artist Snoop Dogg in "Throw yo hood up" and outcome that turns to be Silkk's best track out of the entire album.

1-0 out of 5 stars the wackest rapper i have ever heard
there is nothin we can do nelly sucks and always will.

1-0 out of 5 stars Can anyone save the rap game?
I was recently over a friends house - when I suddenly heard a bunch of dogs barking out back. Me and my friend went outside to see what the commotion was all about - suddenly I felt their pain and began to hollar amomg the feeble animals. As I listened to Nelly's Sweat album from the car of some confused teenagers realized that my beloved rap was just a thing of the past - along with disco music (which is not that bad compared to the garbage that is out now). Now I realized why I never fully gave my heart to the so called "rap game" even when their was some top quality MC's that actually had something to say (Rakim,Public Enemy,De La Soul,Leaders Of The New School,Jungle Brothers, ect.) And this is the reason I'm a avid fan of classic soul,funk,jazz, and rock (not the heavy metal or punk type), and this the reason those guys's are spoke of as legends as opposed to 95 percent of those "gone by tomorrow stars" of my beloved hip-hop. This clown Nelly is consistently excellent in putting out consistent trash. But what I and many other's don't understand is how he's sold so many albums,and I don't kow anybody that owns anything fom this [...] This guy is not an artist he's an con-artist for this trash to the masses of kids and adults a like. I didn't continue to put my ears through the that kind of torture - so from what I heard lame beats,lyrics,song content,ect,ect,ect. This and his other contemporaries such as St. Lunatics(wack),Lil John(awful),Ying Yang Twins(horrendous), and others - it's to many to go down the line (all day affair) LOL! How many times are these record companies going to promote this absurdity and negativity material. It's like anyone can ba rapper these days - no let me rephrase that - ANYONE can be rapper these days. This along with his suit album is the reasons hip-hop is losing many fans and are exploring different elements of music. I was born in 1973(a year before Nelly)so i feel privelidge to grow up knowing about all different kinds of music. And I feel sorry for these kids today because to many of them - this is all they know. That's why it is up to parents such as myself to educate and help steer the youth in the right direction, because as of right now we as people have been doing a dismal job. Kids look up to these rappers for inspiration the way my generation looked up to Stevie Wonder,Marvin Gaye,Temptations,Smokey Robinson, and Aretha Franklin. And even though many of our heroes had troubled personal lives - they never preached such negative and derogatory music. To sum it up avoid this album like the plague and pick up something with more meaning such as, Marvin Gaye(the greatest),Stevie Wonder,(legend),Dramatics,Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes,Eagles,Steely Dan,Doobie Brothers,Three Dog Night,Gil Scott Heron,Bob Dylan,Michael Jackson,Al Green,Bread,Genesis,Aerosmith,Pink Floyd,Manhattans,Maze featuring Frankie Beverly(must have),Jacksons,Heatwave,O'Jays,Billy Paul,Bee Gees,Commodores,Common,Tribe Called Quest,James Ingram,Prince,De La Soul,Kem,Van Hunt,Brian McKnight,Anthony Hamilton and Hootie & the Blow Fish.

1-0 out of 5 stars NELLY IS POSSIBLY THE WORST RAPPER EVER
i cannot believe this rubbish has gone platinum, what is this?, nelly has to be possibly the worst rapper ever to pick up a mic, in fact, calling him a rapper is an insult to rap, hes a pop artist, he has no flow, no good lyrics, he does not rap about anything meaningful or deep,he is ruining rap and making it seem like a joke, which is quickly what its becoming, nelly, along with ja rule, chingy, 50 cent, the game and all the other terrible rappers, should be banned from rapping, i cant believe nelly had the nerve to diss KRS-one, who killed him on a diss, and if krs-one was more famous, and more people heard the diss, it would have ended nellys career, like mf doom said

I love this CD. Out of all his music that I own this is my favorite. Great diversity of songs. Really shows what he can do. I don't know how you couldn't like it if you like Nelly.

1-0 out of 5 stars WTF????????
Peep how shorty below me compares Nelly to Shakespear. If Shake wrote lines like " andale andale mami eeyah eeyah, uh ohhhhhhhh!" He probably would have been stoned on sight and burned on the stake. This is laughable. Everything is wrong with this dude let alone the album. First off hip hop and country should never intermingle for any reason. Period. Nelly disrespected the whole hip hop culture by commiting this unforgiveable sin. What little bit of respect I might have had for him is gone. And I still scratch my head when I hear a Nelly fan say he ate KRS ONE. How exactly? By calling him an old man. KRS can out rhyme this corporate fuppet with alzheimers. This album should be burned together with Nelly and all his followers.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for the Poet Laureate
I just bought this CD and I can't help but give Mr. Nelly the highest accolades.Though the content therein is all superb I have to say that Grillz is really the reason I purchased this fine lyrical work.His concise and hard-hitting plethora of knowledge for life in an urban low-income housing area is second to none.Likewise his diction and command of higher level grammar is commendable to the level of Pulitzer.With lines like "The whole top is Diamond, and the bottom row is Gold," Nelly encapsulates the entire crux of the race relations paradigm.I wish to purpose that many generations hence this young man will be likened to Shakespeare or perhaps even Yeats for his translation of the human soul into music.I commend you Nelly, now if only we can get a CD with you rapping in iambic pentameter!!!!1!1!! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars "We ain't natural born killas. We are a spiritual people."
Onstage at First Avenue Nightclub in Minneapolis, Goodie Mob's Cee-Lo Green lifts up his shirt to reveal a spare tire's worth of brown skin hanging over his jeans as, accompanied by a live band and with a big smile on his face, he rap croons the chorus of the group's hit single: "Come and get yo' soul food, well, well / Good old-fashioned soul food, all right.". Ten minutes later, the playful moment is long gone. After asking if there are and "revolutionaries of the mind" in the house, Cee-Lo delivers a blistering sermon disguised as an a cappella rap to the integrated all ages crowd: "Yeah, it's true, Uncle Sam wants you to be a devil too..... There's evil white folk just like there's evil black folk. All you soldiers, take responsibility for your own actions. White people know more about black history than you do; whose fault is that?..... We ain't natural born kilas, we are a spiritual people."
4-0 out of 5 stars Nelly - Suit
For all the haters that knock Nelly for the style of music he creates. He came he came through with a solid double disc in my eyes. Suit (which is my favorite by the way) got some funky cuts and that what nelly delivers. Play it off is good. Then Pretty Toes eith TI is a good listen with TI coming through with a typically tight verse. Also the Ron Isley and Snoop assisted She don't know my name is a track both the ladies and men can feel. Two of my personal favorites Nobody Knows and I'll die for you shows Nelly's vulnerable side and gives you a glimpse into his life. No he won't ever win lyricist of the year but he makes good music. That's what its all about people. ... Read more

Your underground collection is not complete without 8 Ball's and MJG's Coming Out Hard.This actually put crunk southern music on the map b4 it blew up out of control and made radio play and syndication.First there was the down south booty shake and then came the underground southern pimp/gangsta.This CD is sooooo hot, i have had to re-purchase it a total of 5 times, becuz it keeps coming up stolen!you dont feel me, this is a sit back and ride out cd, where you never have to push the fast forward button, you just let it play all the way thru.

Im 16, born an raised in the dirty. Tampa, and Charlotte to be exact. I thought this would be a cool album to get, cause there was such good reveiws for it here. Don't get me wrong this is a tight album, but it has some really weak point's.
