Album Review

Not even a year had passed since his debut, but the second time around Florida rapper Plies displays great growth. His lyrics here are sharper than those on his debut with the trials, tribulations, and triumphs he's experienced living the street life coming through loud and clear. This journey isn't for the weak-hearted, however, as Plies is an unapologetic beast who — to paraphrase the frightening "Bushes" — didn't come for your money, but came for your life. "Bushes" is a vivid lesson on how to catch and gut a snitch that could only be written by someone made hard by prison. Even more vicious is "Ol' Lady"'s attitude toward women who, in this case, are commodities used to pay off outstanding loans in lieu of cash. This is guys' night out without any moral compass with one grand exception, "1 Day," a heartbreaking letter to a friend on lockup where Plies wishes he could take his incarcerated homie "by the day care to see his son play/And go to show him how his baby mama went astray." Despite its great Patti LaBelle sample, "Somebody (Loves You)" is less convincing and seems forced upon the album like the other radio-friendly tracks — "Bust It Baby, Pt. 2" with Ne-Yo, and "Please Excuse My Hands" with the Dream. The compelling three-quarters of Definition of Real that seems to have crawled out of the gutter proves that Plies is best off when he does it the ski-mask way.

This is a great album, lots of variety in the subjects he raps about. Of course with Plies u gotta have the sexy songs ( Feel Like F**kin) and the goon songs (Bushes, S**t Bag) but then he's got songs that are about actual issues that have affected him that are easily relatable.Plies takes his lyrics to another level to the point where they tell a story that is def worth listening to (e.g. Somebody loves u & 1 Day). They are both heartfelt songs that I kno alot of people will be able to relate to. To make the whole album very well rounded he's got a few radio friendly hits like Bust it Baby pt. 2, (for the females) Please Excuse my Hands & #1 Fan. Then add on extremely well picked features (Neyo, Jamie Foxx, The Dream, Keyshia Cole, J Holiday & Trey Songz) and u have got a hit project. In my opinion he shud have added on some other rappers to the album but u cud argue that he doesn't need that as he is very talented himself. And the fact that he's got street cred and charm with the ladies he def deserves a good response for this album i LOVEEEEE it!!

Over all Plies rap's well, Dream song's well to, but Jamie kills on the hook. 2.1 Fan 4.5/5 It is the 2 strongest track on the album and both Cole and J are good on the hook and Plies rap's very well on the track to. 1.Bust It Baby 4.7/5 Over all Plies and his new friend ne-yo both song and rap very well on the track making it a good single.

Signed to Slip-N-Slide in 2004 after recording his first track, "Tell Dem Krackers Dat," the Ft.

He found some trouble when, during a performance at a Gainesville nightclub on July 2, 2006, an argument about set length escalated into gunfire. Two members of his entourage were convicted of attempted murder, while Plies and a third associate were charged...
