Even the most high-minded hip-hop connoisseur will have a hard time fronting on the booty-bounce directive, "Shake Ya Ass," surely one of 2000's most memorable songs. The lead single off Mystikal's fourth album encapsulates his whole approach: guttural, grunted directives and sexist boasts over some seriously funky production (courtesy Outkast, the Neptunes, and the Medicine Men). Check the tropical backdrop and Nivea-blessed chorus of "Danger" and the wah-wah guitar/808 combo of "Big Truck Boys" for the funk; check nearly every song for that vulgar braggin' and boastin'. The raw bass and slinky rhythm of "Smoked Out" is a nice Southern take on G-funk, and it's a welcome reprieve from the thick "come hither" machismo which dominates much of the other songs. When he's not stroking his ego, though, Mystikal does a good job getting serious too. Uncovering the bad side of the bling, tracks such as "Ain't Gonna See Tomorrow" and "Murderer III" impressively display a more socially aware and mature Mystikal. --Hua Hsu

.... Let's get ready to rumble

"After dropping three discs, "Mind Of Mystikal", "Unpredictable", and "Ghetto Fabulous", with the last two being executive produced by the Tank's own, Master P, Michael Tyler brings us "Let's Get Ready". This CD is Mystikal's finest work to date. It seems like Jive Records gave Mystikal more creative freedom with this CD since he was so called "released from his No Limit contract". After hearing the single "Shake It Fast" I knew that Mystikal would have a tight CD, so I picked the CD up on the first day it was released. Mystikal sounds just like he did on his previous three CDs, but the production on this CD is the best that Mystikal has had to work with. Mystikal has contributions from The Neptunes, The Medicine Men (formerly Beats By The Pound), Earthtone III, PA, etc. This is what makes Mystikal's CD, because his voice goes with all the beats that have been provided for him. The CD's best moments are on "Ready To Rumble", "Jump", "U Would If U Could", "Ain't Gonna See Tomorrow" and the KLC produced bonus track, "I'm Throwed Off". To any fans of Mystikal's song with Outkast, "Neck Uv Da Woods", that song is also featured on this CD. This is Mystikal's best CD to date. If you liked his past collaborations with No Limit artists, then you will enjoy this CD from "The Man Right Chea"."

"I was so excited buying Mystikal's new album "Lets Get Ready." When I was done listening to it, it wasn't as good as I had expected. 3 stars is still above average but I thought it would have better tracks. His lyrics are tight and he has a unique flow, it's just his beats he could improve on. There's only 3 good cuts. I still think this is his best album yet but his next will be better. This album is all Mystikal and has very few featured artists. This factor also brings the album down. The album features Da Brat who's good and Outkast who's also good. The three good tracks are:"Sake your a**" "Danger" and "Neck Uv Da Woods."If someone asked me for my opinion on this cd I would say it's alright. If I could get a refund, I would deffinitely say no. I still like mystikal and the cd I just think it could be improved on."
