Album Review

Subtract "Laffy Taffy," one of several outrageously sleazy dance-rap singles that inspired revelry as often as contempt during the early 2000s — depending on listeners' tolerance for cleverly produced tracks with sharp hooks and crude sexual euphemisms — and D4L's Down for Life wouldn't be much of a story.
