I’m being serious.
I first heard good positive reactions on twitter, so I figured if its good enough for the twitter-verse; let me peep this out and holy moly! This album is good.
Hood Review: 4.9 out of 5.
And no, I’m not exaggerating.
Don’t get me wrong, Ludacris can make some hits, but I never thought of him as an elite type of rapper like a Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye, or a Kendrick.
But Ludacris comes out swinging with this album!
I’m calling this right now – Ludaversal is going to be in my top 10 albums of the Year list by the end of 2015.
And we’re not even at the half way mark for the year!
Let’s go down track by track and let me briefly explain why I like this album so much.
Produced by David Banner, Luda spits that fast flow with some heavy disses to other rappers. Straight fire.
Bringing it to that 2005 Ludacris, Luda raps about his past in this very hip hop track.
One of my favorite tracks on this album. Luda just kills it and disses a bunch of no name rappers.
Don’t let the short playing time feel like this is just a filler. I could totally see Eminem rock this beat in his prime. But Luda does it justice.
This is what rap sounds like. Look it up in the dictionary and you’ll hear this track.
This is just a funny skit. And it leads to the next song.
A drinkers anthem. I know want to order a vodka gimlet. Also, I can see this as a hood single.
My favorite track of the whole album. A classic. Yes, I know what I said.
The single of the album is also a banger. Just make sure you have your subwoofers ready for the bass.
This is one is for the ladies and for the gentlemen when we feeling a little sad.
A nice introspective track, allowing us to understand the different levels to Ludacris. I like this a lot too. Very personal.
Another radio single. It’s probably the weakest track in my opinion.
Another dope track, Luda keeps it real here. Some straight rap shit.
The craziest beat on the album; which is also good because it’s the longest running track on the album.
Rick Ross kills it on this track! This is the one track I feel like Ludacris could have done better.
Another possible single. I could totally a music video this track.
Ludacris brings the bars on here! He makes some great points about his career and personal life here. One of my favorites here too.
I feel like this one is for the white people. But I like it – it has a very rockish type of vibe to it, which tops off the Ludaversal album.
I do want to call this a modern classic, but the way the internet is set-up, saying something like that brings heavy criticism.
I feel like I can defend it all day but the real proof is the music. In a couple of years, after a few more listens, I think I can convince plenty of people to see as a classic.
Now a funny thing has happened tho. The A$AP Rocky album At.Long.Last. A$AP. has dropped, and I’m not joking guys – I’m liking that album better than this one.
I know, I know.
But hood review on that album might be coming soon. (Possibly – don’t hold me accountable tho.)
Lastly for those wondering, yes you can get this album for free 99 so you can judge for yourself, if you click here or on album cover.
You’re welcome Internet.
