After a lot of catfighting with Roxanne Shante following her spritely 1990 hip-hop-pop hits ”Monie in the Middle” and ”It’s a Shame,” Monie Love goes rapid-fire remorseless (”Mo’ Monie,” ”Sex U All”) but remains so conversational on In a Word or 2. She sits you down on a park bench and kicks chitchat, both rib-tickling (”Greasy”) and guileless (”Full Term Love”). Marley Marl’s Stax horn squeals, snapping beats, and skittery scratches make guest producer Prince seem modest. B+
