As the lone Mississippi rapper with a major-label deal, David Banner formerly of Crooked Lettaz has a lot to prove, even after his 2000 solo debut became a critical success. Mississippi: The Album is a very schizophrenic record, alternating a parade of one-note thug tracks "F*** 'Em," "What It Do" with more reflective material concerned with the realities of down South living "Mississippi," "Cadillac on 22's". No matter the situation, Banner's an excellent rapper, capable of moving from hoarse, harsh, in-your-face rants to fluid speed raps with no trouble or change in quality. The productions are top-drawer as well, most by the man himself, along with high-profile contributions from Lil' Jon and KLC.
