CD Reviews

Mr. Smith
Da Villan | Pinnacle, NC USA | 08/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Back when he took a dive after releasing "14 Shots to the Dome" he came back with a vengeance with Mr. Smith. To me, this is the best album he came out with so far and should have sold more than it did. On this album, even though every one of them has samples of other songs, I can listen to it all the way through. Like I said, classic album but very underrated.

Lloyd's Favorites:
Hey Lover
Doin It
I Shot Ya! (also the remix)
Mr. Smith
No Airplay
Hollis to Hollywood (but is he good?)
God Bless
Loungin (the remix)

LL Cool J - Mr. Smith
Constant | Vancouver, BC Canada | 03/18/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"LL Cool J's (AKA Todd Smith) sixth album "Mr. Smith" (1995) was a fifteen-track release from the Queens native. Trackmasters who helped executive produce this release lace "The Intro" (Skit) with a tight instrumental and LL starts his album off laughing. The next track "Make It Hot" is tight; LL samples the Debarges "I Like It", and rhymes with his trademark flow in what turns out to be a smooth joint. LL shines when paying tribute to "Hip Hop", celebrating and taking his listeners down memory lane. "Hey Lover" is off the hook, one of LL's most memorable love joints, Boyz II Men vocals are used, and LL drops an outstanding track while talking about having love for an attached woman. LL then delivers a getting laid track with "Doin It" feat. Leshaun. The tone of the album starts to change after this point with LL dropping more grimy cuts like "I Shot Ya" and "Mr. Smith". LL cuts into other rappers who overuse metaphors while repping himself on "Hollis to Hollywood". LL keeps guest appearances limited till the closer the "I Shot Ya" (Remix) which features Keith Murray, Fat Joe, Foxy Brown and Prodigy. The best part of this album is the early part in my opinion, where LL excels; later on things get a bit repetitive. The good joints on this are memorable, making "Mr. Smith" a solid album. 3.5."
LL's last great album

"This album came out a little over 10 years ago and still worth listening to. On here, LL switches up his style from loverman(Hey Lover) to hardcore rapping (I Shot Ya). After this album, LL officially fell off and now is making crapy music and movies. So if you want great LL albums, get this, MSKYO, Radio and Bigger and Deffer.

1.intro
2.make it hot-skip this. filler
3.hip hop-great song where LL makes a tribute to rappers that inspired him to rap
4.hey lover-a top ten hit. a great song for late night.
5.doin it-another top ten hit. a raunchy sex song. it's not that nasty compared to what you hear in today's raps.
6.life as...-it's an ok song. nothing special.
7.i shot ya-a great song. it's addictive. this is the LL i want to see more often.
8.mr. smith-another hardcore track. great rhyming.
9.no airplay-filler
10.loungin-a little more explicit than the remix.
11.hollis to hollywood-ok track
12.god bless-it's good for the most part.
13.get a drop on them-filler
14.prelude
15.i shot ya remix-another classic from the album. features great rhymes from foxy, fat joe, keith murray and prodigy."
