Still Ghetto [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Jaheim's considerable vocal talents only increased during the recording of his second album, and a stronger set of songs made Still Ghetto a definite improvement over the debut. As before, it all begins with his voice: a deep, throaty croon that makes him sound at least ten years older than he actually is basically, about as old as the soul samples dotted over the record and marks him as one of the few R&B artists active who can summon the spirit of a Teddy Pendergrass.

Just like his soul forefathers, everything about Jaheim is honest and heartfelt. [Still Ghetto

    True R&B makes a comeback.

    Finally a CD that you can pop in and leave it. This CD is smooth. Jaheim represents today's R&B.
