Album Review

If it seems odd that an album as bravado-filled, trash-talking, and schoolboy horny as this one comes with the title Battle of the Sexes, perhaps it can be explained as a leftover title from what was originally planned as a joint release from Ludacris and his DTP protégé, Shawnna. After the album’s better half left the project — along with the DTP family — the title was never readjusted, and there are further confusing traces of the original concept, such as the “us vs. them” intro, which opens an album that’s almost entirely “us.” Still, quality control is less important than titillation when it comes to the porno-style album, and Battle of the Sexes delivers on that level. Redd Foxx-like ideas, such as making limbo instructions sound especially nasty (“How Low”) or having fun with the Tiger Woods sex scandal ("Sexting"), are coupled with safe and slick beats from the likes of the Runners, Swizz Beatz, and the Legendary Traxster. Luda is inspired enough to drop at least one belly laugh-worthy punch line per track, while the numerous guests are, at worst, on point, and at best (that would be Nicki Minaj), on fire. The less-sexed “Everybody Drunk” barely fits into the mold, but it’s still a party time highlight, and when you add the very R. Kelly-esque “Sex Room,” plus Lil' Kim getting vicious on “Hey Ho,” you’ve got more prime material than expected. The album is limited and a little patched together, but if cheap thrills are what you’re after, this one puts the dirty back in the dirty south.

Ehhh...oh my.

I was never really a fan of Ludacris in the first place...but this album is just awful. I'm really disappointed, Ludacris is not the only rapper who used to be good, and is now going down the tubes with ridiculous albums. Yes, I have a bit of a bias, because when I see that someone has featured Flo Rida in a song, you know the album is going to be terrible. At least Soulja Boy isn't here, because I would vomit all over my computer if he was featured in any of these tracks.


I was never a Ludacris fan, mainly because he was a southern rapper. But I decided to check out this album, and this is just stereotypical rap. Its very sexist, just way too sexist even for me. This album just doesn't stand up against the other albums released this year, just a lame excuse to make money it seems.

wow sell out!!

Ludacris you have sold out. this album is terriable every song sounds the same. every song is a club song. i dont know any rap fan that would say this album is good. This album is for girls and clubs. not for hip-hop

When the Dirty South movement broke nationwide at the turn of the century, Ludacris rode it to immediate widespread popularity, becoming arguably the most commercially successful Southern rapper of the time. In 2000 the Atlanta-based rapper signed to Def Jam's newly established Southern rap subsidiary, Def Jam South, and became the label's flagship Dirty South artist. Def Jam repackaged his underground album Incognegro (2000) as Back for the First Time (2000) and issued "What's Your Fantasy?" as...
