Product Description

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Amazon.com

Despite the star power and the hyped-up title, this mano y mano between R&B heavyweight R. Kelly and rap master Jay-Z isn't what fans might have expected. In fact, this CD teeters dangerously close to being little more than a macho vanity project. One could assume that initial intentions were good. After all, R.  and Jay's collabo "Fiesta" was a sleazy slice of playa-party fun, but this full-length project, for which the stars recorded their parts separately, is disjointed and somewhat dull. Instead of taking R&B and rap to new heights, Best of Both Worlds proves, once again, that (graphic) sex is the only thing on R. Kelly's mind and Jay-Z can probably rhyme in his sleep. There are tolerable moments, à la the title track, which features R. Kelly's trademark sweeping melodies and Jay-Z's deadpan wit, but even some good hooks and poignant observations can't excuse insultingly juvenile cuts like "Honey" and "P***y." The best of both worlds? Not even close. --Amy Linden

Customer Reviews

There is only two good songs on the whole cd.
Warrior-D
A lot of the lyrics sound like they are straight from other songs by Jay-Z or R. Kelly.
Cory Jacinth
What a good album for just listening to laid back songs and party songs.

I like Jay-Z, and R kelly can be good ..., but this is awful and made strictly for the money and reflects the music industry's current state......in dire needs of originality.

Jay-Z, R. Kelly & Trackmasters - a formula which has proven to be successful in the past ("Fiesta Remix", "Guilty Until Proven Innnocent"). And now a whole album of 13 potential smash hits? What could possibly go wrong? Well, the problem with this piece of work is that all songs just sound the same due to the weak production by Trackmasters. You'll get tired of it very quickly. Yes, the beats are probably the biggest weakpoint of "Best of Both Worlds".
Speaking of which... The best of both worlds? Definitively not from the hiphop world. Jay-Z's rhymes are too simple and his flow lacks the certain something. After his epic debut "Reasonable Doubt", his follow-ups were plain wack. With his latest solo album "The Blueprint" though, he came back with a vengeance. So expectations for his appearance on this collabo were high and he couldn't fulfill them at all.
R. Kelly on the other hand does a pretty good job. His voice never sounded better and his pseudo-gangster-flow is pleasing to the ear. Unfortunatly, this isn't enough to save the record. The best cuts are "Take You Home With Me A.K.A. Body" and "Break Up To Make Up"; "Somebody's Girl" is o.k. - The rest, well, don't mention it.
So don't cop this one and save your money, unless you're a die-hard fan of R. Kelly or Jay-Z.

Before I start, let me just ask one question: Who was asking for an R. Kelly/Jay-Z collabo album, anyway? Sure, "Guilty Until Proven Innocent" and the "Fiesta" remix were bangers, but that's no reason to run to the studio and throw an album together. But it sounds like that's exactly what the two brothas did.
The Best of Both Worlds is full of been-there, done-that material over below average production mostly by the Trackmasters. A shame, since Jay-Z just released his critically acclaimed The Blueprint and R. Kelly got some props with his TP2.com some time ago. Truly, this album will only appeal to the die-hard fans of either artist.
R. Kelly is known for pushing some great ballads like "I Believe I Can Fly" and some corny raunchy songs like "Half on a Baby". On this effort, he shoots for the latter and brings us such material as "Naked" and "Somebody's Girl". There is also a huge lack of his soulful singing that he used to overcome his questionable songwriting like he did on his past albums. As for Jay-Z, he spits okay lyrics but they're far from his best. "Break Up To Make Up" showcases him once again biting Biggie's catalogue spitting, "Think about it while the streets you roam...", and "Shake Ya Body" features a tight flow but full of nothing special.
Sure, the song titles are generic ("Naked", "Shake Ya Body", "Get This Money", "Shorty", etc.), but production is the biggest flaw. This album is full of undercooked beats and rhythm that if you tried to bump them in the car or at a party you'll slap yourself silly. Mostly done by the Trackmasters, they are also repetitive, as you'll hear the same drum-and-hand-clap percussion in songs like "Shorty" and "Somebody's Girl" that was already used in Ludacris and co.

Sometimes it's better to not even bother to figure out with Jay-Z is thinking. Such is true when he teams up with R. Kelly for The Best of Both Worlds. This whole album is just a crime. Calling R. Kelly the best in R&B is a joke, and Jay's lyrics come off as some of the worst heard in hip hop.
Where does one start? Maybe at the Intro. It's good. In fact, it's the best song on the album, which says something about the quality of this disc. It's obvious that this album is targetted towards the club girls, but that is no excuse for how bad this album is. The problem with this CD is how absolutely shallow it is. It sounds like Jay did his lyrics for this entire album in 1 sitting, and R. Kelly is laughable. One listen to Naked and you'll understand.
So why is this album not worthy of 1 star? The Intro, It Ain't Personal, and Streets are all good songs. They aren't great, but compared to the rest of the album, they're gems.
It doesn't matter how big of a Jay-Z fan you are, do not buy this album. Nobody deserves to be put through the torture of hearing this, nonetheless pay for it.

Frist things first
(1)Beats are horrible
(2)Weak Lyrics
(3)Lame Production
OK theres 1 or 2 songs where theres chemistry but ...rest of the album is just a poor excuse...rkelly's nsync drinage sellout lyrics were so ... weak..
even then his lyrics are poor compared to the 5 STAR BLUEPRINT!
This is something that everyone should stay away from...i mean both of them clearly say that they did it for the money on almost every song! what more do u need....So is this album download worthy? Umm NOT entirely. listen to the track samples before u download ...no point in wasting 2 minutes on your cable modem :) ....and if u really wna spend some money get the new Ol' Dirty Bastard album ....atleast it will make u laugh :)...........im looking forward to jayzs new album..but for now i'll stick with NAS thank u!
