Chicken -N- Beer [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Atlanta's Ludacris continues to rep the Dirty South with his third solo disc, Chicken & Beer, featuring the infectious single "Stand Up."
All Music Guide - John Bush
Audacious on his rhymes and indulgent with his appetites, Ludacris may flaunt the cartoonish side of his personality, but he isn't just another unreconstructed Southern rapper. Chicken -N- Beer, his third album to go along with dozens of guest spots, shows a rapper balancing the weed, women, and fried chicken with shots at those who've crossed him and a look at a few celebrity perils, delivered with his lightning-quick phrasing and cutting wit. That he's able to harness all this ...

Atlanta's Ludacris continues to rep the Dirty South with his third solo disc, Chicken & Beer, featuring the infectious single "Stand Up."
All Music Guide - John Bush
Audacious on his rhymes and indulgent with his appetites, Ludacris may flaunt the cartoonish side of his personality, but he isn't just another unreconstructed Southern rapper. Chicken -N- Beer, his third album to go along with dozens of guest spots, shows a rapper balancing the weed, women, and fried chicken with shots at those who've crossed him and a look at a few celebrity perils, delivered with his lightning-quick phrasing and cutting wit. That he's able to harness all this to his usual rollicking, all-in-good-fun persona is a testament to the best rapper in the business, one of the few who's actually celebrating something -- and having a great time doing it. The steamy sex rap "Stand Up" may be the hit single, but most of the highlights here come toward the end, where Luda invites friends and family for some uproarious tracks -- producer Erick Sermon on the surrealist dozens of "Hip Hop Quotables," Snoop Dogg on a hilarious tale of the night after the show, "Hoes in My Room" as in "Who let these hoes in my room?", and Disturbing tha Peace partners Chingy, I-20, and Tity Boi on the hardcore gunshot "We Got." Ludacris also has a response for the doubters, on the first full track "Blow It Out", proclaiming, "If you mad I'm on top, then wish me gone/If you mad I'm on the road, then wish me home/And if you mad that I'm right, punk, wish me wrong/But after your third wish, blow it out your ass." And, as expected, he gets in a few digs at Bill O'Reilly, the FOX News personality who objected to him as a "thug rapper" when hired for a Pepsi ad campaign apparently, O'Reilly is the culprit behind "Hoes in My Room". He may not be ready for that Pepsi spot much less a shot at prime time, but Ludacris made the best record of his career with Chicken -N- Beer.
Entertainment Weekly - Neil Drumming
Snaps, the dozens, cracks, or whatever you want to call them -- Luda's third album has gut-busting insults and boasts for days. [B-]
Blender - Kris Ex
He has such a way with words that he can resuscitate overused samples with opposite ends of flow.

    yes!!

    this cd is so tight. i loved 'back for the first time' but was disappointed with 'word of mouf' so i'm really excited for this cd. i just wished they would've put the remix of 'splash waterfalls' on this cd. it's one of the best remixed songs i've heard in a while.

    Ludacris has sold out

    This album is not near as good as either Back for the First Time or Word of Mouf. Stand Up is the only song that sounds like genuine Ludacris, the rest sounds just as lame as the rest of hip hop these days.

    Sorta Disappointed

    When Word of Mouf came out, I was amazed at all the potential hit songs I heard on the album when I popped it in to my stereo (and, I was right, you got "Rollout", "Saturday", "Move", etc). So I waited eagerly for a long time for a chance to hear his new one, Chicken N Beer. I didn't think about listening to it before buying it, I trusted Ludacris to deliver the same amount of crazy hits like he always does. Instead, I was disappointed that this album isn't as good as Word of Mouf. Maybe, if I had never listened to Word of Mouf, then I would've thought differently about this one, but it's hard to ignore the fact that Chicken N Beer can't compare to his last album. I only like two tracks on the whole thing, Stand Up, and Hip Hop Quotables. If you're thinking of buying it, please listen to it somehow beforehand and then decide whether you want to get it or not.
