Editorial Reviews

Out Of The West Bank Of New Orleans Comes The Prince Of The City Baby Boy Da Prince Created A Name For Himself In New Orleans With Lavish On Stage Performances And Catchy Feel Good Records And Opening For Platinum Acts Such As; Juvenile, Paul Wall, 50 Cent, And Many More. Gaining The Attention Of Q93 In New Orleans, Baby Boy Da Prince Released His Debut Single "The Way I Live" And Instantly Became The Number 1 Most Requested Record At The Station. This is the clean version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Across the water and into mediocrity November 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Baby Boy da Prince - Across the Water (Universal Republic, 2007)

"The Way I Live" was a banger and which made me look into this album. I thought, here's a newcomer from the South who actually shows some promise. But boy, was I wrong.

Basically, everything that can be wrong with a rap album happens here: the only good songs are the singles, ("The Way I Live and, to a lesser extent, "Naw Meen"), too many skits--none of them good, and clichéd subject matter. Nothing about this rapper separates him from the other baby boys out there. Bottom line, if you had a choice between buying this album and buying extra diapers for your kid, buy the diapers. -EJR

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Debut May 26, 2007
By Josh
Format:Audio CD
It's not as bad as what people are saying. I would say it is a strong/solid debut very worthy of 3 stars.

Everyone knows the first smash single: "The Way I Live" which is hard driven over a very heavy bass line with a very catchy hook. Everyone bobs their head and sings along to this jam. That is the obvious reason why I decided to purchase this CD.

I basically got out of it what I expected to. Nothing spectacular but, by no means, nothing as terrible as what people are saying on here. All the songs have a great thumping beat. Good production. I think he is a decent rapper - maybe not 100% honed in on his craft. The lyrics are not always "there" and some of the lyrics in some songs seem a bit juvenile but, there are not too many songs that I skip over - they are decent. Nothing to write home about. I do like his voice and his style. I would give a full 5 stars if it was based solely on production and beats because the beats are tight!

I would give it a sample somewhere and if you like what you hear purchase. I like it but, there is some room for improvement. A car bumper for sure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Baby Boy da What? March 20, 2007
By Person
Format:Audio CD
I honestly don't know why I picked up Baby Boy's album. Maybe I thought it had a chance because he's from New Orleans or something. Anyway, I followed this album through "The Way I Live", and that song should've already told me to stay away. To me that song is madd overrated since the beat is corny and all Baby Boy raps about how much money he has. So, I guess because of inner feeling, I decided to look into Across the Water, and I very much recommend you to stay on the side of the water you are on, or in other words, stay far away from this.

One very big problem that is simple to point out is the album is all about sex. Now, occasionally, and if done right, acts like Pretty Ricky can pull this off. (And maybe the Ying Yang Twins are occasionally tolerable.) However, Baby Boy does not this go around, so many songs sound skippable right from the beginning. Probably the best example being "Good Juge", which is just offensively sexual, that covers a sex story (Yes, as in every action done), and really the song doesn't go anywhere. The production is okay for clubs, but even then the song's production sounds unfinished and as a whole the song is filler. (Okay, not saying much but...) "Slide In Slide Out" goes into what the title suggests. The beat on this song is very nice and banging, but, not so good when you have such a boring and ridiculous chorus "Let me slide in/let me slide out". Also some unaccredited girl comes in through the chorus, and she sang so badly that I couldn't make a word out of her. "Lock You Down" is another sexual song, which has weak lyrics ("Get outta my face before I catch me a case/I shouldn't have been f--king with you in the first place", WHAT?), and Baby Boy sounds like... I hate to say this but...Chingy.

1.0 out of 5 stars easily one of the worst of 2007 April 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I wont give you the speech about what is wrong with hop hop and what this album has to do with that but I will say this....save your money. Im happy I had napster and was able to hear every track. This album is forgettable and not in a neutral way...The track " The way I feel," honestly should have kept me away (on 2nd thought) but I decided to give it a chance and listen to it and once again this proves the radio stations in my city havent got a clue...glad im movin... ( I can only hope hot 97 isnt playing this)
