Editors’ Notes

A quick glance at the cover of Release Therapy, Ludacris’ fourth full-length for Def Jam, might leave the casual Ludacris fan wondering if they haven’t picked up the wrong album. Ludacris appears, with eyes closed and hands folded in a contemplative prayer-like posture, strikingly at odds with the cartoonish blowout afros and wolfish grins of Word of Mouf, and Chicken and Beer. Fortunately Release Therapy provides abundant evidence that Ludacris has not lost sight of the fact that party music, in the grand tradition of James Brown’s “Cold Sweat”, The Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight”, and Redman’s “Time 4 Sum Aksion” is very serious business indeed. Ludacris’ shines when applying his boisterous roar to the shimmering, club friendly thump of “Shake Your Money Maker” and the low-slung southern bounce of “Grew Up A Screw Up.” He falters a bit on some of the album's more ambitious numbers, which occasionally feel forced and underwritten, but ultimately Ludacris’ considerable talents are enough to make Release Therapy one of the strongest releases of his career.

If you really listen to this song, you will understand that Ludacris can be serious about things. This is a shout out to all you girls out there, don't runaway or turn to things like alcohol to get rid of pain. Peace, Jada

Ludacris` album is extremley powerful ( to me ) [with the exception of ' Money Maker' and a few others. . .] Runaway Love. . .that song made me cry. Not in a bad way; but to me that song was very emotional. It`s true about little girls growing up in tough places, and having pressure to do weed and have sex at an early age. buy it =)

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.

Def Jam repackaged his underground album Incognegro (2000) as Back for the First Time (2000) and issued "What's Your Fantasy?" as...
