The Good, the Bad and the Just Plain Silly…

The Good:

Jeezy, T.I. and Ludacris  joined forces to rally voters in support of Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Jim Martin. Sadly Martin lost the race to Republican Saxby Chambliss (who has the greatest name ever). But it’s nice to see rappers show some continued interest in politics. That’s a good job fellas.

The Bad:

What the hell was Plaxico Burress thinking?! He shot himself in the leg? That’s no way to accrue street cred. Shot himself accidentally in the leg and now he’s suspended for the rest of the season. And Bloomberg is not happy.

That’s bad for Giants fans…

The Just Plain Silly:

Kanye West wants to intern at Louis Vuitton? I’m all for following your dreams but seriously, I can’t imagine Kanye being an intern anywhere. Maybe he will shadow some designers and learn about the business but he will not be doing the grunt work of an intern. That’s just plain silly.

Theater of the Mind

I love Ludacris. And I am not sure that he gets his proper due. I was looking forward to Theater of the Mind. I shouldn’t have.

Let me explain. I think that Luda is uber-talented. This was his chance to show people just how talented he really is. All of the guest stars kind of drowned him out. His voice was lost. At least that is my initial take on the album. His delivery is as punchy as ever but the fact that he has so many co-stars means that he has less time to showcase his skills.

Lyrically, he still gets down, holding his own with Jay-Z and Nas on “I Do It For Hip-Hop”. Common comes through with a great effort on “Do the Right Thang” and Lil’ Wayne is surprisingly mediocre on “Last of a Dying Breed”.

It was like an amalgam of Ludacris. I say that because most of the songs remind me of songs that he has done before. He needed to push the envelope, and I’m not sure that he did.

All in all, it’s not a bad album. And Ludacris is still one of the best. But I’m not sure if this is the classic album that he needed to add to his catalog. Still a good effort. Still love me some Ludacris.

Love “I Do It For Hip Hop” co-starring Nas and Jay-Z.
