Album Review

Arriving a year — almost to the day — after his superior Listennn: The Album, DJ Khaled's sophomore effort, We the Best, is a mixed bag. On the plus side there are the singles and highlights, all of them infectious, grand, and inspired. Leadoff single "We Takin' Over" is a star-studded, Akon-anchored anthem with swagger to burn, while "Brown Paper Bag" twists a grand sample of Yvonne Elliman's "If I Can't Have You" into a soulful tale of fast money. On the latter, Jeezy, Weezy (Lil Wayne), and Rick Ross add up to that rumored all-star edition of Boyz N da Hood that never happened, and if that isn't enough to draw the hip-hop regulars in, hearing the Game, Jadakiss, and Trick Daddy all on the same track, "I'm from the Ghetto," certainly will. Last of the must-haves is "B**** I'm from Dade County" with Khaled, Trick Daddy, and production team the Diaz Brothers in fine pro-Florida form. Besides the Diaz Brothers, Cool & Dre, the Runners, Danja, and Caine Beats produce tracks while Khaled only helms two: the "Intro" (which barely counts) and "Before the Solution," with Beanie Siegel once again covering his iffy relationships with Jay-Z and Dame Dash. Beanie has covered this drama much better elsewhere, up to and including his guest shot on Listennn, but the other tracks that miss aren't as disappointing; they're just fair. Khaled doesn't help much by doing his usual "Listennnnnn!" and "I represent the ghetto!" shouts over songs he has little or no connection with, and while the man has said this effort isn't about his production skills but rather music he loves, it seems like all the more reason to stay out of the way. Maybe it's an effort to ease the geographical jumps — from Florida to the Cleveland-repping Bone Thugs and on to "New York" — or a way to keep the momentum rolling on this up-and-down effort. Instead, it just points out these shortcomings when they could have been less noticeable. Much more frustrating than a failure, We the Best earns a slight thumbs up if you think of it as a disjointed soundtrack or four-hit mixtape. [We the Best was also made available in a clean version, with all explicit material removed.]

We The Best-DJ Khaled

Last year's Listennn.....The Album was successful, Khaled is back with an all star guest list. Intro: We Takin Over: Danja's beat is fire, as Akon creates another great chorus. T.I. describes the places they about to take over, the other verses are average, except for Lil' Wayne who absolutely kills his verse. 5/5 Brown Paper Bag: Cool & Dre produce a great beat with a nice piano laced track, Lil' Wayne kills it again. 4.5/5 I'm So Hood: T-Pain's hook really annoying, the rappers do okay. Decent production. 3.5/5 Before The Solution: DJ Khaled actually produces this track, as Beanie once again talks about Jay and Dame status but tells us to wait until his album, The Solution. 3/5 I'm From The Ghetto: Another great track, Dre's hook and The Game's verse are great. 5/5 Hit Them Up: Average track. 3/5 S On My Chest: Solid track, with a chopped and screwed hook, nice track. 3.5/5 B**** I'm From Dade County: Nice production, as various rappers from Dade County come showcase their talent. 3.5/5 The Originators: Nicely fit production for Bone as they spit with some fire. 4/5 New York: New York pt. 2 Jada, Ja and Crack are back, for some fire on this track. 3.5/5 This album had better production but I think the last album was better. A star studded group of artists, it will sell but it could have been better. Rating 7 out of 10

DJ Khaled did his thing on this album.

The whole album is great. iTunes needs to get We Takn' Over Remix

Amazing

Wow. There isn't one single song where Khaled doesn't have a Top of the Line Rapper in it. And for all you hatin, that means that he obviously impressed those poeple, 'cuz if her didn't, why would they wanna feature witih him? All i have to say is this is amazing. Worth Every Cent. I've had "I'm so Hood" on my iPod scince late May 2007 and i still listen to it, "We takin over" was sooo popular but no matter how much you played it it never got old like some songs do On that note i think ive said all that needs 2 be said.
