2.0 out of 5 stars Ghetto Supastar he's not (1 and 1/2 stars) July 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Why am I not surprised that we have a top 500 reviewer giving three and 1/2 stars to an awful album? How much more proof do you need that Top 500 and Top 1000 reviewers are whackos? Okay, there is a reason why Fugee fans never mention Pras. Can you guess why? HE SUCKS! His rhymes are a**crack and he has the personality of a hermit crab. The only good song he has is Ghetto Supastar featuring Ol' Dirty(RIP) and its the best song he's ever made. Free of 106th and South Park(I meant to write that because I hate that show)fame couldnt save What Cha Gonna Do from being a waste. As soon as Pras opens his mouth its over. Another classic example of this is Cant Stop The Shining (Rip Rock Part 2). Canibus and Free had some great verses but once again Pras messes up everything with his elementary style of rapping. His second single Blue Angels was horrible and Frowsey not only suffers from lame hooks disease and it suffers from horrid beat virus as well as wack rhymes plague(okay, I'll stop. I promise). Murder Dem is another stinker with a corny country music sounding beat as well as some uninteresting lyrics from Pras. Yeah Eh Yeah Eh and Wha What Wha What are just as wack as the titles are. More disposables: For The Love Of This, Get Your Groove On and all those stupid a** telephone interludes(as if anybody cares about who is cool with Pras!)should have been scrapped like this cheesy album. Bottom Line: Hands Down, Pras's Ghetto Supastar is the worst album of 1998. That is not hatred it is the truth! Crummy beats, wasted guest appearances and a terrible performance by Pras himself. Pras cannot carry a whole album by himself and if you were listening he was the weakest link out of The Fugees. Listen to Blunted On Reality for proof. Then listen to this album and Win, Lose Or Draw for concrete evidence of his wackness. If you not convinced that he is weak after hearing all that then I cant help your a**!

2.0 out of 5 stars what a letdown March 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
when i first heard pras on a record in The Score and then on wyclefs solo album i practically wet my pants when i found out that pras had a solo album in the works.... then i bought it pras changed his style people have come to love and then on top of that made some tracks that were just plain stupid (ie.lowriders,for the love of this just to name a few) i give it 2 mics because of the 2 good tracks (ghetto supastar,dirty cash)

2.0 out of 5 stars Intense November 10, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"A 20 track album" I thought, "Great value for money", as I handed over my £15. Spin this disc and after the introductory rendition of 'Hallelujah', it just gets worse. This album is intense from the offset - 74 minutes of nonstop vocals. Quality is certainly sacrificed at the altar of quantity, for the best tracks are undoubtedly the interludes featuring the likes of Naomi Campbell, Sting and Aaliyah.
This is no musical album, it (constructing pleasant melody) obviously isn't Pras' forte. Or that of his producers. Methodic and uninspirational bass lines and heavy, droning beats pump mercilessly throughout the complete duration of every single track, as Pras wittles on using awfully constructed lyrics on the most incomprehensible subjects (what does "Frowsey" mean anyway?). This album has no theme, no message, and no suject. Each and every song is immensely forgetable. Although 'Blue Angels' is one of the two slightly pleasant songs ('Another One Bites the Dust' is the other, where Freddie Mercury and WyClef take firm hold of the mic leaving Pras to mumble about something in the background).
He's has made a conscious effort to stay in the mainstream, whilst retaining some 'Gangster' credability, so much so that this album is riddled with abbreviated expletives that serve no purpose, other than grate on the nerves. If you can't say it (and I hate it when they do), leave it out.
Pras has always been the least talented of the Fugees, and this album confirms it. I must agree with Pras' blurb in the album sleeve, in that I eagerly await the day they reunite for a comeback album. At least then he'll be relegated to the background, letting the real talent can shine.

2.0 out of 5 stars What happened too the Pras? October 18, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ill have too say that I was rather dissappointed in this album. I am a big fugees fan and have every fugees album and all the solo allstars albums too. If you are deciding too pick this album up I suggest you listen too it first. The only new songs I somewhat enjoy on this album are "Blue Angels" and "Lowriders"(even though it has a horrible chorus). The rest of the the songs are average and below(mostly below). I would recommend this album to people who lean more too the rap side of the fugees rather than the r&b side.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pras is not a rapper December 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
He rode the Fugees wave to stardom, and honestly he might be a good producer, but with Lauren and Clef on a record, the record is going to hit hard no matter who else is on there, as Pras shows and proves. In fact it's hard to tell exactly what Pras ever did. He was a third wheel musically, and next to the other two it was almost embarrassing when he grabbed the mic. It's sad that he got a solo deal while other rappers are out there with talent but no visibility. The title says it all "Ghetto Superstar." People ride his jock but the props he gets are always second-hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Music, Too Many Interludes July 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Ghetto Supastar" the single was and still is a popular single. The catchy beat and chorus by a then unknown Mya was irresistable, and the addition of Ol' Dirty delivering his famous weird rap flow was a good plus. I think that the songs on the album Ghetto Supastar, matched that single. They say because Pras was the least known member of The Fugees that he is less talented, but in reality Pras has a better flow and smarter lyrics than his more famous cousin/rival Wyclef Jean.
The only thing that the album bombs on are the interludes. The unnecessary gospel intro's and outro's, in addition to the pointless answering machine messages from celebs, stop the album from being a classic like "The Score" or "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill".
The advantages of this album however are the great music. Guests like Canibus, Free, Product G&B, O.D.B., Mya, Mack-10, and Mostwanted show up on many of the best songs. On "Can't Stop The Shining", Pras, Free, and Canibus all deliver tight verses over a guitar beat of Lenny Kravitz. "Blue Angels", one of the songs that rivals the title track, is made with a beautifully sung chorus by Product G&B, and tight rhymes by Pras. Unlike Wyclef's debut, Pras' actual album doesn't feature Clef or Lauryn Hill, but manages to include Wyclef on the Refugee Sampler that comes with the album. Another favorite of mine is "Yeah 'Eh Yeah 'Eh" featuring Mack-10 and Reptile(who's flow resembles a young Method Man), in which all three lyricists flow over a sort've western, saloon piano beat. The really dramatic songs are "Murder Dem" and "For The Love Of This", both succeed(the chorus of Murder Dem is the only letdown of that song).
In the end, you can either love or hate this album. Pras, as well as the other members of The Fugees, is one of my favorite lyricists and I hope he drops his sophmore soon.
