Two years after his acclaimed fifth LP, Ludacris gets cinematic on the highly-anticipated followup, THEATER OF THE MIND. Employing the Hollywood concept on each track, the ATL king of punch-lines shows his versatility, working with the most eclectic stable of producers seen on a Luda project to date, and passing the mic to a wide range of big-name guest MCs and film personalities (billed "co-stars").
Whether he's asserting his dominance alongside boxer Floyd "Money" Maymeather ("Undisputed"), doing the token drunk-in-the-club routine ("One More Drink"), showboating for his haters while Chris Rock clowns him ("Everybody Hates Chris"), or sermonizing in favor of more positive hip-hop alongside Common and Spike Lee ("Do the Right Thing"), Ludacris is as lyrically fit as ever; his one-liners never fail to outshine those of his many costars. The production itself moves from conventional Dirty South to West Coast gangsta to radio-friendly slow jams and even East Coast boom bap. Jay-Z, Nas, Lil Wayne, Jamie Foxx, Rick Ross, the Game, T.I., Chris Brown, T-Pain, and Plies round out the formidable supporting cast.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.75) - "Luda himself is still cast in his signature role, the same affably ribald player with the unflappable flow..."
Billboard (p.41) - "This one's stuffed with massive, flamboyant beats; overloud dirty-comic vocals; and all the usual lyrical stops..."
XXL (Magazine) (pp.119-120) - "Luda delivers by bringing aboard a solid cast of artists and personalities.
Mojo (Publisher) (p.122) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Luda's thundering cadence and pop-wise club jams are strong on 'One More Drink'..."
