Ludacris
Release Therapy

releasetherapy.jpgLudacris is dying to be taken seriously—at least some of the time. The Atlanta rapper has demanded respect from Bill O’Reilly and Oprah Winfrey. He’s cut his trademark braids to a more-sophisticated low fade. And on his sixth solo effort, Release Therapy, he even addresses issues such as child abuse and the prison population. The result is a solid album short on obvious club bangers but long on the more worldly perspective of a rap veteran.

Though he’s known more for clever punch lines and bombastic choruses, Luda manages to deliver social commentary with equal skill. The Trak Starz–produced “Do Your Time” could’ve easily become a trite big-up to brothers locked down, but ’Cris sends a passionate kite to the incarcerated scarfaces in his life, while Beanie Sigel, Pimp C and C-Murder candidly speak on their firsthand experiences behind bars. Meanwhile, Mary J. Blige’s sorrowful wail gives “Runaway Love”—a three-part cautionary tale about girls forced to grow up too fast—a tender, soulful edge.

Despite his newfound deeper perspective, Luda hasn’t lost touch with his party-animal persona. In fact, on “Woozy,” a naughty slice of bedroom funk featuring R. Kelly, he’s spellbound by some booty, blurting out, “Like Vicks Vapor/I wanna fuckin’ ruuuub it.” The sex-obsessed rhymes continue on the Neptunes-produced “Money Maker,” where he brags, “Let me give you some swimming lessons on the penis/Backstroke, breaststroke, stroke of a genius.” Aside from Pharrell’s droopy congas and bland whispered hook, it’s a standard Ludacris cut in all its horny glory.

For the most part, though, Luda manages to balance the profane with the profound. The most notable example being the handclapping gospel uplift “Freedom of Preach.” Making a personal proclamation to the Lord, he cleanses his spirit and comes to the realization that there’s more to hip-hop than party and bullshit: “Either I’m smarter ’cause of my daughter or I’m just that dense/I’m 28 years old, and it’s just now startin’ to makin’ sense.”—BRETT JOHNSON

    That’s some political bullshit and you know it. You guys are just like the old Source – 4 Mics is the LEAST you get.

    Fucking fruads.

  • e

    Luda is a dope rapper too bad he hasn’t released a classic yet. He stepped his game up though the classic is on the way.

  • G-UniteyeGotchaBack

    Luda has always been a lyrical BEAST and I don’t expect for dat to change any time soon. I can’t wait to check out the album and hear it for myself.

  • Livin’ Proof

    DON’T HATE ON LUDA, JUST CUZ HE DON’T RAP ABOUT THE SAME ORDINARY BULLSHIT LIKE SELLIN’ CRACK AND KILLIN’ NIGGAZ…HE’S VERY CREATIVE AND I THINK THIS WILL BE A GREAT ALBUM…BIG UPS TO LUDA!

  • TYRONECAPONE

    I HEARD THIS ALBUM ON THE MTV.COM (THE LEAK). THIS ALBUM DOES NOT DESERVE A XL. IT DESERVES A M. LUDA’S BORING! THIS NIGGA HAS SHOWN NO GROWTH AS AN ARTIST! RELEASE THEREAPY AIN’T FUCKING WITH “KING”. KING WAS A CLASSIC. “RELEASE THREAPY” WAS WEAK! LUDA AIN’T HUNGRY NO MORE! T.I. IS THE KING OF THE SOUTH AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT YALL CAN DO ABOUT IT! FUCKING DUMMY!

  • TYRONECAPONE

    THIS ALBUM WILL NOT SELL OVER 500,000 THE 1ST WEEK LIKE T.I.’S “KING” DID! FUCK LUDA! THE NIGGA IS OVERATED!

  • TYRONECAPONE

    COP THE ROTTEN APPLE (10-10-06), THE FAST LANE (11-14-06) AND BUCK THE WORLD (11-28-06)! IT’S THE G-UNIT TAKEOVER!

  • mzfinegirl

    luda album on mtv was bangin for real i think it deserved an xxl but money maker fd that up

  • http://XXLmag.com Westside Money aka G-unite

    ok an XL is wat i was looking 4 butr im still bugging cause my nizza chingy got a medium instead of a large.Wat kind of rating is that.

  • VICK

    On some traks luda get lyrical..this shit is bangin

  • SickTheScholar

    This Cd is a good look from Luda. His lyricism is on point, I really see Luda as being in the top three out of the south right now. I give credit where it is due, and a XL was a good score for Release Therapy.

  • Amen-RA

    This album is a classic; definitely his best to date.

  • Marcus

    Luda came wit it with this classic

  • Marcus

    Luda came with it with this classic!

  • REAL TALK

    THE ONLY ALBUM IM COPPIN IS FABOLOUS WEN DAT SHIT DROPS

  • http://yahoo.com PRINCE CEASAR

    Luda is the most lyrical nigga in the south. T.I. spitting that shit too, but, he ain’t on Luda’s level. Fuck Lil Wayne..that nigga is fraudelent, clown ass, fake gangsta nigga. Luda’s album will do well and I really hope this one is better than the Red Light District. The boy Luda is getting better each year..give that nigga his props and stop dick riding wack niggas like Rick Ross and gay ass Lil Wayne.

  • Kez

    dont fuck wayne he da best rapper alive…well actualy B.G is.and T.I the fakest persone ever.

  • JD@619

    I just finished listening to luda’s cd and i think its a great album. he shows gorwth as an artist with tracks like “tell it like it is” and “freedom of preach”. i can appreciate the creativity he brings to the game, regardless of what others think. i’m tired of this drug talk, and misogynistic bullshit so if you into an artist who carries passion 4 what he does, cope the ablum!

  • haha

    this album was disapointing.. you can count the good tracks on one hand. save your $ and wait for him to drop another “word of mouf” or “chicken & beer” … hopefully by q4 2k7.

  • http://phurdrickyahoo freddy

    B.G best rapper alive? I don’t know you KEZ,but please listen to more music, before say such things. Anyway,I’ve never owned a Luda c.d., but I’ve enjoyed his songs, movies, and videos. After reading the review I might thing it’s time for me to buy his c.d..P.S..North,East,South and West it doesn’t matter it’s all music to me. No hater here.

  • dannie cane

    ludacris is very underrated. there are a lot of rappers who are getting praise and accolades that are not deserving of them. i really dont purchase rap c.d’s but i will invest in this one. “don’t worry bout them haters keep ur nose up in the air.”

  • PJeezy

    Luda Keep Up da A-1 Work Homez!!!!

  • http://www.afcheath.has.it adriano

    This for me is Luda’s best work since Word of Mouf. He gets it right here with his tight flow, witted punchlines along with some more ‘mature’ tracks as described in the review. However cant deny he sounds best when hes riding those mad beats and just flowing like mad. ‘End of the night’ is my fav track on the album, but there is at least 7 tracks at least that stand out for me which is good. Andry Luda sounds sick with tracks like “war with god’ and ‘It is what it is!”

  • D

    Fuck all you haters. Tyrocapone your a bitch saying ludas shit and g-unit gonna take over. HA!! you fuckin chump. Ludas got better lyrics than all of gunit combined you pussy. get off his dick hater

  • Vindi

    This album did suprise me not many head bangers but lyrically/concept wise Luda stepped up for real

    http://www.myspace.com/vindiakaleon

  • mzfinegirl

    his cd was tight a few songz were garbage but it was still good

  • jose

    ludacris album is hot ….like nothing hes done before…. FIRE!!!!…. but def jam aint getting my money … i burn it …..hahahah
    fuck u def jam….. u dont care about the artist.. u only care about the money… ludacris is one of the best… for those who dont like it eat a dick…DTP!!!!!!

  • mark-1

    luda definately brought it dis time… hip hop is all about evolution and not sayin da same shit on every album… this is different 4 him because its more introspective and less animated… every song up there is hot in its own way… if he continues 2 step it up he could possibly reach hov’s level… maybe

  • MC 50

    Lyrically this is Luda’s best album ever. Its just a few cuts short of a XXL in my book. He’s bein’ real introspective and that’s a part of Luda we haven’t really seen. This album restablishes Luda as the REAL king of the south.

  • Dee

    TELL it LIKE it IS !!!!

  • Dee

    T.I. dont want it with LUDA

  • thetruthHURTS

    luda albums good but hes just another southern rapper thaqt cant spit more than 2 syllable words only south artist i know that can do that is lil wayne

  • a10ciod

    Luda’s talent is comparable to Samson of the bible. Samson had his hair cut off in his sleep and lost his “well-known” strength. In Luda’s case its the same. His lyrical content wasn’t there. I’m like “Dude you rhyme like Dr. Seuss and your production on the album sucks.” The only half-way decent song on here was “Do Your Time” and even thats pushin it. Beanie made your album Dogg. Let Ellens fans get down with your shit.

  • a10ciod

    Ohh yeah!! Quit bitin NAS-”Life’s a Bitch” lyrics aight.

  • mark-1

    dis is definately the best hip hop album so far this year… hands down!!
    ti and busta rymes were ok and lupe fiasco was good but this blows everyone out of da water for 2006… its great 2 c dat someone is still puttin some sort of effort in their music!
    some of da worst songs came out dis year
    1. lean wit it rock wit it (DFB)
    2. walk it out (UNK)
    3. chicken noodle soup (webstar)
    4. hands up (lloyd banks)
    5. its goin down (yung jock)
    6. number 1 (pharrel and kanye)
    and dats jus 2 name a few…

    some hot songs of 2006
    1. ridin (chamillionaire)
    2. touch it (busta rymes)
    3. what u know (ti)
    4. clipse (mr. me too)
    5. lupe fiasco (kick push)
    6. rick ross (hustlin)
    this is pathetic da hottest songs of da year aren’t even solid hits!!! wtf!!!!
    pop took over big dis year!! hip hop went down… yea da year aint ova yet but even if jay-z puts out a classic it’ll still be overshadowed by this trash!!! wake up people we gotta make dat fire for 07′
    i jus had 2 git dat off my chest!!
    da TRUTH will set u free!!!

  • MAC

    “and we just gettin started” this album aint no joke for real i kopped at coconuts its the number 1 selling at the store this album is goin 2 do the same numbers as the rest of his albums but it should do more cuz its luda at his best and most creative he gets real on this album if u like real hip hop u will definitely get this album wit out disappointments even the club/slow jam songs are good i cant really find a flaw in the album only thing is that its just makes me want 2 here somemore it derserves a xxl in my opinion but i can deal wit a xl,in other news luda is already workin on his next album “theater of the mind” will be hittin store late 2007…but anyway 2 the haters and bad reviewers i cant respect u cuz if this album is not hot then u really dont know rap and y would u compare ti 2 luda luda sells more records then ti…. every album ti came out wit only went plat no my mistake his first album went gold(lol)and king hasnt even touched 2 mill yet even red light district sold 2mill so i dont want 2 hear shit … and if u want 2 know whos the real king of the south just listen 2 young buck’s “stomp” the version wit ti and luda on it thats all i got 2 say about that 1… just kop that release therapy album though and get that lloyd banks rotten apple 2 10/10/06

  • B-boy

    Release Therapy is one of Luda’s best albums that he put out

  • Chris Villain

    this album doesnt deserve an XL at all…this ALBUM is very weak with only 4 tracks worth a listen…….and i like luda….this album is kwite wack…luda needs to wrks on his lyricism…he is too much of a punchline rapper

  • Julian-Aquil

    Other than Oukast , Luda Is the BEST rapper from Atlanta PERIOD… Fuck T.I., Jezzy (chezzy), Young Joc (Jezzy lil’ brother), D4L, Franchise Boyz and/ or any other fake ass snap music (crap music) rapper claimin’ Atlanta. YEAH I FUCKIN’ SAID IT, NOW WHAT. Also, I now reside in the Metro Atlanta area.

  • Prince Of The South

    Luda stepped it up on this record. All the other records were nice, but we never really got to see who Ludacris was as a person on them. This is the most well rounded cd he’s put out, the singles on there suck, but he still stepped it up. Hope this is a sign of what we can expect from him from now on.

  • Brad- essex england

    this album is the bomb! who gives a fuck what other people think!if the haters was putting the same music as luda would it be shit no not by a fucking long shot keep up the good wrk luda and def jam music! and keep on giving us them xxl mags some shit hot reading material.

HE JUST MADE THE BEST SONGS AND NO HE DIDN’T HAVE TO MAKE A SNAP/LEAN/ROCK MUSIC, BUT INSTEAD HE LET HIS SKILLS SHOW ON THIS! SO RAPPERS ABOUT TO DROP, Y’ALL TAKE GOOD NOTE AND PLEASE MAKE SOMETHING HOTTER OR WATCH LUDA ENJOY THIS RELEASE THERAPY WAVE BY HIMSELF TO THE END…..AND SOUTHSIDE, SEE I GAVE LUDA SOME CREDITS BECAUSE HE MADE QUALITY MUSIC, AND WROTE THE BEST RHYMES OF HIS CAREER. I WILL STILL NEVER RESPECT THE YING YANG TWIN, D4L, DEM FRANCHIZE BOY, BECAUSE THEY ALL CAME IN THE GAME TO DESTROY HIP HOP WITH BUBBLE GUM MUSIC. OH YEAH AND TO MAKE MATTER WORSE WE HAD TO DEAL WITH FUCKIN’ “MISS NEW BOOTIE” DUDE…WOW WHAT AN IGNORANT. A WHOLE SONG ABOUT BOOTIE?

  • bk2dr

    DAMN! I’ve only heard like 4 songs of AZ’s new album, but its still way better lyrically than anything I dl from Jim or Luda. I am starting to believe XXL based their reviews on how famous the artist is. And if Jay gets XL, the same as Jim then I know they dont give out XXL’s either. Every famouse artist gets XL. AZ and Jay should get XL, Jim and Luda should be happy with a L.
    Another thing I dont hate on the south for doing what they do (making money, I used to be a Luda fan be4 chicken & beer) but its true that if hip hop keeps going where the south is taking it then its better of dead!
    (At the BET awards Luda was wearin a tee that says “hip hop aint dead it lives in the south” well if it does its gonna die soon.)
    Sad day when the critics and the public neglect real MC’s.

    luda is probably the only southern rapper with any lyrical ability. too bad he is only focused on “money makers”.

    luda is not fucking with the clipse period! !!

    Xl rating is a good rating. I like Ludacris’s rapping. On this album he had some song that needed not to be on there.

  • Big Moe

    Luda is one of the best out now but people under rate him because he don’t rap about drugs and killing niggas and he ain’t trying to be no supa thug like some other faking ass rappers

  • Money Marv

    Come on man, I was born and rasied here in atlanta and you guys must be didnt listen to the same album I did. Luda is off his game, he maybe losing his mind or something. Dont get me wrong, I like the guy but honestly, this was his worst album by far.

Luda’s wasn’t a xxl but the clipse is no where deserving of a xxl. or at least wasn’t better than release therapy. in no way, shape or form.

  • Matt H.

    I only have one question…
    Where the hell did most of you learn to write? 90% of the people who post on this site have absolutely no concept of writing in a lucid and direct manner. Have you ever thought about using commas, periods, question marks, or any of the other syntax and grammar tools that have been adopted by the english language to help articulate your mindless rhetoric and “beefs?”

    Here’s a suggestion…
    If you really want someone to get your point, do not write in your street slang. It isn’t near as effective, and it is very hard for the reader to comprehend (not that most of you really have anything important to say anyways).

    You are disgracing yourselves and the people who helped raise and mold you. You are disgracing the hip hopsters you are trying to defend by writing things that don’t convey a real message…just like every one of Chingy’s songs. hahaha

    Final thought…
    Use some sense when you write; you may just “school some niggas.”

    …yes I am an avid hip-hop listener and have been for many years. I have seen it evolve into the crap we see from most artists today. Test my knowledge if you must.
