Whatever else he may be, San Francisco native Yukmouth is most definitely thugged out. A rapid-fire delivery over skittering beats signals the arrival of the latest Luniz member to drop his solo effort. THUG LORD is an uncompromising slice of West Coast thug life.
A musically sophisticated backdrop doesn't mask the hardness of the lyrics, even when Li'l Mo's honeyed vocals put forth the case for thug womanhood. Yukmouth is under no illusions about life's realities--it's all about the money in his world, especially if it's thug money. A piano trill heralds "So Ignorant," featuring Kurupt, where Yukmouth confronts a few of his demons to the tune of Rockwell's '80s hit "Somebody's Watching Me," proving he's not above a little healthy introspection. Though he's probably no threat to most of the rappers currently populating the upper reaches of the charts, Yukmouth's raps still wield a hefty punch.
