Overview

Back for the First Time

The Dirty South scores once again with the infectious club anthem "What's Your Fantasy" by Atlanta rapper Ludacris. The Georgian MC is the premier artist on Def Jam's new Def Jam South imprint, and with Back for the First Time, he inaugurates the label with his mean Southern drawl and a bevy of deep, hard-knockin' beats, compliments of various top-notch producers. On "Game Got Switched," the production team Organized Noize (OutKast, Goodie Mob) provide Ludacris with video game-accented beats and a rapid-fire bass line. Meanwhile, Jermaine Dupri takes the reigns on the clamorous, angst-ridden "Get off Me," on which Ludacris and Pastor Troy trade rallying chants. The disc's true gem, however, is the percolating, bass-heavy, Neptunes-produced "Southern Hospitality," where Ludacris hollas catchy lyrics such as: "Overall country/overall jeans/overall Georgia/we overall clean." Displaying true thug passion and down-home charm, Ludacris joins Southern-flavored rappers Nelly and Mystikal in adding a pinch of hot pepper to hip-hop's spicy melting pot. Abby Addis

Ludacris, wild, crazy, different, meaningfull, out of the ordinary and very interesting. There are many other words I could use to describe this artist, but there isnt enough space!

in my personal opinion Ludacris is the best rapper that I have heard in a long time and the only one to wear his suite well,he is the one man no one can touch including myself it's just like trying to touch one of God's angels. I have been a one of his fans since the begining. he has giving me the strength to continue my time and excistence and for that very reason I would like to say Thank you to the one man that has filled my heart with so much joy and the one true love I've known and dreamed of,So I'm saying "Thank You Ludacris" a true inspiresd fan. Love a true freind Demita Venson

I think this is a great cd, it has fast beats and great lyrics. You can listen to it at a party or at home by yourself because it gets you hyped to do about anything. I listen to it while doing my homework and it takes me no time to get it done. The fast beats make me like the cd, slow beats do nothing for me. The songs on the cd appeal to me because of there content. I would recommend this cd to anyone who likes songs with great lyrics and fast flowing beats. Me and my friends listen to this cd all the time and just hang out. Some of the songs are funny and me and my friends joke around with each other about them.

I have to admit when I first heard this cat I thought he was just on some ''fantasy'' type thing. But after listening the album start to finish I was as well as the hip hop industry should be-IMPRESSED! Maybe it's the fact that he's on Def Jam South but this cat is bringing beats and orginality through his lyrics that I haven't heard in a while from the South-definitely not fitting the mold of the ''typical'' down bottom artist. In fact Ludacris is changing the game down there and seems so much more advanced than his counterpart rookie Nelly and has more flavor than the proven vet Mystikal. Listen to Southern Hospitality, Ho, Gett Off Me and Stick em Up and you'll agree that not only will you feel Ludacris but you get a sense that he's going to be hear for more than a minute. Go out there, buy it and get crunk fool! Dirty South to the fullest!

This is no doubt the greatest Southern rapper out there right now.With different calaberations with Timbaland,and Shawna in ''Whats your Fantasy''.With the hip and quick beats mixed with the huge bass line gives all Ludacris songs a complete THUMP!.After listening to his first album, I'm very anxious to get his second coming out November 27.Now that he's between albums,he has been found on other albums and videos like ''Fatty Girl'' and ''Breakin Neck'' with Busta Rhymes gives a positive and obvious outlook that Ludacris is movin on up on to the South SIDE.
