Barnes & Noble
With his third album, BOOK OF THUGS: CHAPTER AK VERSUS 47, Trick Daddy solidifies his rep as a writin', rhymin', raunchin' triple threat. Picking up where the grimy storytelling of his debut disc, BASED ON A TRUE STORY, and its follow-up, WWW.THUG.COM, left off, Trick Daddy delivers a tightly produced collection of tracks that are as appropriate for a late-night grocery store stickup as they are for a Friday night romp at a trendy Miami club. The album's highlight, "Shut Up," has all the ingredients -- including silver-tongued guest lyricist Trina and a sharp, sing-along hook -- that made Trick's runaway single, "Nann Nigga," such an infectious hit. Essentially, it's the same winning formula that makes BOOK OF ...

Essentially, it's the same winning formula that makes BOOK OF THUGS as invigoratingly ghetto-fabulous as his other efforts. Trick Daddy chronicles the finer things in his life: mo money, mo cash, mo hoes. But somehow, even when he's at his most depraved, you can't help but shake your rump, albeit Miami hoochie-mama style. Just when the hip-hop nation attempted to once again sleep on Miami as a hip-hop hot spot, Trick Daddy turns that theory inside out. Aliya S. King

Trick Daddy takes his career to the next level on Book of Thugs: Chapter AK Verse 47, moving to a major label, Atlantic, and delivering his first coast-to-coast hit, "Shut Up." His previous two releases, Based on a True Story 1997 and www.thug.com 1998, had established him as one of the Dirty South's most promising rappers, particularly after "Nann Nigga" became an underground hit, but these gritty releases never crossed the Mason-Dixon Line nor the Mississippi River. On the contrary, Book of Thugs burst out of the South, thanks largely to the financial backing of Atlantic. For the first time in his career, Trick Daddy had a sizable budget to work with, and the results are wonderfully evident. Both the beats and the vocals sound incredibly vibrant, on a par with anything coming out of New York or Los Angeles at the time; furthermore, two big-name guests, Mystikal and Twista, make notable appearances, finally giving Trick Daddy some impressive talent with which to tangle. Above all though, Book of Thugs boasts "Shut Up," his rowdiest club-banger yet, also notable for reprising the dynamic Trick Daddy-Trina collaboration that had made "Nann Nigga" such a success two years earlier. Elsewhere, Book of Thugs features a few other highlights "Boy," "Get on Up," "Thug for Life", but it's by no means a solid album. The excessive guests are a bit frustrating, tempting you to fast forward through lackluster verses far too many times, and the production of Righteous Funk Boogie and Black Mob Group is spotty, sounding less impressive as the album creeps toward its distant end. Book of Thugs nonetheless raised the bar for Trick Daddy, elevating him to national status and setting the stage for his commercial breakthrough.
