We Are Guilty of Making Classic Hits!!!!

by lildwight@aol.com on 3/26/2002

After the oh so bangin' "Guilty Until Proven Inocent" and the baller's anthem "Fiesta(REMIX)" the two platinum sellers are back with a colabaration album "The Best of Both Worlds". Featuring: "The Best of Both Worlds", "Take Ya Home With Me aka Body", and the club banger "Get This Money". Jay-Z recently got an 5-mic rating for his 6th solo release "The Blueprint" and was given a re-rating for his 1st solo project"Reasonable Doubt" and was voted a 5-mic rating by Source Magazine. And the 5-mic ratings won't end baby, this is on it's way to another one. Read More

What do you get when you combine one of the biggest names in hip-hop with the premier R&B singer of his generation? In the case of R. Kelly and Jay-Z, besides the obvious marketing opportunity, you get an intersection between the two genres that illuminates the strengths of both while simultaneously working on a new paradigm from the middle ground occupied by both artists. "Break up to Make up" isn't the old Stylistics R&B hit, but a new concoction full of Jay-Z's attitude and R. Kelly's vocal power; no looking back for this pair. And with Kelly being one of the original R&B mack daddies, you can be sure that tales of carnal exploits are in no short supply on the appropriately titled THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. The key here, though, is the way Jay-Z's well-documented lyrical acumen is supported by the melodic twists and turns of Kelly's singing, and how RK's sound is in turn made all the more visceral by his partner's in-your-face approach.

Q (May 2002, p.115) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...R. Kelly lends his soaring vocal...but leaves plenty of room for Jay-Z's brash, muscular raps..."
