Ludacris is on fire!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"this whole cd is blazin from start to end. this man gots some tight unheard of lyrics. i like on "hood stuck" were he kinda disses puffy(i almost got signed with puff, puff but i think i'll pass)this cd is definitely worth buying, he definitely established himself as one of the best rappers in the biz with this cd, plus they threw in phat rabbit off timbaland's cd. the beats are tight, and like i said his lyrics are off the hook.tighest songs: "you got a problem", "game got switched", "whats your fantasy", "ho", "stick em' up", "catch up", "southern hospitality", "get off me", "phat rabbit", man there all tight!"

"As the first act signed to Scarface's newly formed Def Jam South, Ludacris has a lot to live up to. He had already got a local buzz with the single "What's Your Fantasy", so the only question that Ludacris really faced was would his style be accepted all over the map and not just in the South. Once the single started getting BET and radio play, Ludacris started getting known and "Back For The First Time" got the jump start that it needed. Instead of concentrating on strictly the bounce sound of the South, Ludacris focuses on the lyrical side of things and that's why I like his CD so much. You don't get the repetitive tracks on this CD like you would on most CDs from Down South Artists. The CD starts off with a bang with the song "U Got A Problem". You get the typical Down South beats but Ludacris rips the track to shreds with his lyrics and that also continues with the Organized Noise produced "Game Got Switched". The whole CD is filled with Down South beats and Ludacris or his crew supplying the lyrics. UGK, who still has yet to drop a CD, shows up for the best song on the CD in my opinion, "Stick Em Up". Ludacris stays with UGK the whole time on this lyrical slugfest from the South and you will want to hear this combination on another song in the future. Ludacris also wins with his current single, The Neptunes' produced, "Southern Hospitality". Other noteworthy songs are the Timbaland produced, "Phat Rabbit" and the "What's Ya Fantasy" (Remix) w/Trina, Shawna & Foxy Brown. Foxy Brown sounds like she is on a comeback trail after her parts on this song and CNN's "Bang Bang". The only question I have for Ludacris is why he didn't rap on his own remix? This is a tight debut CD from Ludacris. Hopefully, other Def Jam South artists will follow this example."
Great CD

"Ludacris' debut is great. It is fresh with a unique sound. He has great skill and some that are even funny. All of the songs are great except for "Get Off Me" w. UGK. The chorus repeats itself annoyingly over and over. The 2 best cuts on the song are "Ho" and "What's Your Fantasy (Remix)". "Ho" has great puns and is funny. Trina and Foxy Brown add to the already great song "What's Your Fantasy". This is well worth the money. Any hip-hop fan would love it."
