JD has earned a reputation for creating masterful, crisp tracks for a constellation of stars like Ludacris, Usher, and Mariah Carey. On his previous album, Jermaine Dupri Presents Life in 1472 (The Original Soundtrack), the producer smartly left most of the rhyming to those on the cards of his bulging Rolodex (including DMX and Lil’ Kim). Here, vocals from Nate Dogg and Jadakiss match JD’s rollicking beats, but the producer spoils the mood with too many of his own whiny rants. At least this album improves on the previous one’s awful title.
