Overview

A pop-rap sensation weeks before his debut album was even released, Chingy didn't really need a solid effort to move platinum-level units, as his massive breakthrough debut single, "Right Thurr," was certainly enough in itself. The track borrows everything wonderful about Nelly's "Hot in Herre" smash hit from the summer before. From the bouncy, bassy beats to the Southerrn dialect, and from the sexual overtones to the teen pop accessibility of the hook, "Right Thurr" is an instant party rap classic. The remainder of Jackpot -- especially "Holidae In," featuring both Ludacris and Snoop Dogg -- is nearly as tailor-made for pop-rap appeal. Credit largely goes to the Trak Starz, whose Neptunesque productions fill the album (they produce all but one song). On the downside, the quality of the hooks sometimes doesn't match up to that of the beats, and Chingy himself lacks the substance to match his style. Still, there are enough well-crafted songs on Jackpot to make it an entertaining listen from beginning to end, provided you skip past a few songs here and there. [In the wake of Chingy's commercial success, Capitol Records reissued Jackpot with a bonus DVD featuring videos for "Right Thurr," "Right Thurr (Remix)," and "Holidae In" along with some behind-the-scenes footage.]
