Editors’ Notes

The introspective turn Ludacris took on Release Therapy helped win him his first Grammy, but for anyone who thought mainstream acceptance would soften him Theater of the Mind returns the Atlanta rapper to the attack mode of his early years, when his rhymes impacted with the force of ax to an oak tree. “Wish You Would” and “Everybody Hates Chris” find Ludacris responding to his detractors with his old fire-breathing intensity: “I cross the finish line twice, they still tryin’ to start / But my infrared beam will make ‘em shine in the dark.” On “Last of a Dying Breed” and the DJ Premier-produced “MVP” Ludacris explodes with the hunger of a rookie rather than a pop star content to coast. At its heart, Theater of the Mind is a brilliant and unrepentantly basic rap record, but “Do the Right Thang” slips in some wisdom without sacrificing the album’s unruly attitude: “They say my folks'll do whatever for the fortune and the fame / And it'll take a fortune to get rid of all the pain, but I'm sayin’ / Use your brain baby, do the right thang.”
