  • Ludacris' Red Light Shines Bright

    As the man of the hour steadily nodded his head along with the press members in attendance, Ludacris’ fourth album, The Red Light District, was premiered for the ears of a lucky few last night (Oct. 20).

    “Luda had a lot of fun making this record,” Ludacris’ manager Chaka Zulu announced before pressing the Play button. “This was the first time that he really got to relax while making an album.”

    This level of enjoyment is obvious throughout The Red Light District, a title which is meant to anoint Luda’s hometown of Atlanta as the U.S. parallel to Amsterdam’s carefree haven.

    Heavy on inspired collaborations, his typically vibrant wordplay, and speaker-damaging production, The Red Light District is sure to be another smash for multi-tasking rapper.

    “Get Back,” the first single, recaptures the intensity of Ludacris’ past hit “Move Bitch,” with kinetic beat work courtesy of KLC of the Medicine Men. Lil Jon contributes moody electric guitars on the alcohol and weed ode “Too Much,” while Timbaland blesses Luda with tribal percussion and avant-garde bounce on “Potion.”

    New producer Voodoo nearly steals the show with his haunting Teena Marie sampling on “Child of the Night,” where Ludacris engages in candid self reflection, spitting, “I admit to being trumped by too many distractions, and I’ve been forced to pay for my childish actions.”

    DJ Green Lantern turns the Austin Powers theme music into a rowdy soundtrack for Ludacris to fire off cocky boasts on “Number One Spot,” with Luda even throwing a swift jab at rival Bill O’Reilly.

    High-profile guest appearances are bountiful on The Red Light District, with artists like DJ Quik and DMX joining the festivities. Sleepy Brown provides the hook for the vibrant “Blueberry Yum Yum,” Ludacris’ experimental exercise in off-kilter singing.

    The album’s crown ***el, however, comes in the form of the old-school inspired “Virgo,” featuring Nas and Doug E. Fresh, complete with a vintage Fresh beatbox backdrop.

    With additions from Mannie Fresh and The Neptunes currently being finalized, The Red Light District should easily make Ludacris fans happy when it’s released on December 7.

                  get Back for the First Time and Word of Mouf. if you want to hear some quotable-filled lines all in one song... get "Hip Hop Quotables" from his Chicken & Beer album.

                        hip hop quoteables on chicken & beer even sucked:-/. The beat was totally fuckin trash for christ sakes. Only good songs were "We Got", and that Block song.

                              you don't understand why he had that beat? the main point of the "ugh" beat is for you to put more focus on his lyrical skills and less on the hype beats. if you listen to his lyrics... you'll recognize some hot ass punchlines in there.
