Product Description

Rapper Ludacris has set a Sept. 26 release date for his ambitious new album, "Release Therapy." The Disturbing Tha Peace/Def Jam set will be preceded by the single "Money Maker," which arrives Monday (July 17) at U.S. radio outlets. The track was produced by and features Pharrell Williams. The "Release" portion of the set reveals a more personal side of the rapper. Here, he discourses on such socially conscious subjects as child abuse (the Polo-produced track "Runaway Love"). The "Therapy" section comprises such cut-loose tracks as "Girls Gone Wild." R. Kelly guests on the track "Woozy." Ludacris tells Billboard he envisions "Release Therapy" as giving listeners "their temporary fix or release for the day." Upcoming plans include bringing in Spike Lee to direct a video for "Runaway Love," and a tour featuring Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace roster, which is home to Shawnna, Bobby Valentino, Shareefa and Field Mob. "Release Therapy" is the follow-up to 2004's "The Red Light District," which has sold 2 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Billboard-2006

Ludacris doesn't pull out any real surprises here, but he also wouldn't have lasted this long if he didn't have a talent for consistency. What's missing here are big singles. His first attempt, "Money Maker," was too color-by-numbers. There's nothing on Release Therapy that achieves the anthem status of older Ludacris singles like "Stand Up" or "Pimpin All Over the World." Yet, even lacking a stand-out radio hit, Release Therapy is a satisfying listen, working what's now become a standard blend of playa/pimp songs ("Girls Gone Wild") and a few trap anthems ("Grew Up a Screw Up") and dispensing grown folk wisdom ("Freedom of Preach"). Along the way, he manages to take a slap at former protégé Chingy ("Tell It Like It Is"), rap about young mothers with Mary J. Blige on "Runaway Love," and hold it down for brothers in lock-up alongside Pimp C, Beanie Siegel, and C-Murder on "Do Your Time." Though not spectacular, Release Therapy stays the course for Luda to continue ruling as the Mouf of the South. --Oliver Wang

I was first introduced to Ludacris just like most people were with the infamous "What's Your Fantasy". I liked the track but I had to hear another song before I decided to purchase Ludacris' 1st official CD in stores, "Back For The First Time". When I heard the Neptunes produced "Southern Hospitality" I knew that I would pick up the CD. My favorites included "U Got A Problem", "Catch Up", and "Stick 'Em Up" w/UGK. Ludacris quickly followed "Back For The First Time" with his 2nd CD "Word Of Mouf". Before the CD was released he had a track entitled "Area Codes" w/Nate Dogg that was featured on the Rush Hour 2 soundtrack. The first official single for "Word Of Mouf" was the Timbaland produced "Rollout (My Business)" where Ludacris was instructing all paparazzi and people who weren't down from the beginning to mind their biznass and to leave him alone. My other favorites from this CD included the hilarious "Coming 2 America", "Saturday" w/Sleepy Brown, and the "Word Of Mouf (Freestyle)". 2 years later Luda dropped his 3rd CD, "Chicken And Beer". Things got off to a great start with the "Southern Fried Intro" where Isaac Hayes' "Walk On By" speeds up to a frenetic pace and Luda drops some nice verses to get the CD started out right. Right after that, "Blow It Out" makes things even better as Luda is able to address any haters and Mr. Bill O'Reilly. The first single from "Chicken And Beer" was the Kanye West produced "Stand Up". My other favorites included "Screwed Up" w/Lil Flip, "Diamond In The Back", "Splash Waterfalls", "Hip Hop Quotables" and "H... In My Room" w/Snoop Dogg. The following year, Luda dropped his 4th CD, "The Red Light District". The 1st single was "Get Back", but the track sounded alot like "Act A Fool" which was on the "Fast & Furious 2" soundtrack.Read more ›

Luda's back with his 5 album Release Therapy also known as his last album to be released on Def Jam.This has to Luda's best album to date.The Cd starts with a great opening ~*THE WARNING*~ showing luda's lyrical ability and great production.Another good song is ~*GREW UP A SCREW UP*~ sampling the late Notorious B.I.G voice as the hook feat. Young Jeezy I felt produciton wise it could have been better It's still good but kinda not there but the the flows of ludacris and Jeezy makes the song all worth while. ~*WAR WITH GOD*~ is luda takin shot's at an unknown MC I give this songs hands down a 10/10 production goes great with the Lyrics this song is really showin luda's lyrical ability you'll deff be putting this song on repeat.Those are some of the stand out tracks if your looking for a CD with great production and excellent wordplay ~*RELEASE THERAPY*~ is a must buy.The only downfall about the CD is for a much highly anticipated CD I expected there to be more tracks.So I give *~RELEASE THERAPY*~ 9.5/10

I'll be straight-forward, I've never been too big on Luda to begin with. While I respect Luda, and believe he is quite talented, he has never really given me music to relate to. For Luda, it's always been about partying, pimping, smoking, and occasionally, haters. Some would say he gives a slightly introspective cut on each of his albums, but honestly, they've never really given me much of an insight into Ludacris.

I just don't feel personally attached to Luda, and for me, that's essential to appreciate an artists' work fully. I have the same problem with quite a few emcees, and even if they're a lyrical genius, if they don't touch me as a person, I'll rarely ever be able to see them as anymore than a talented artist, who lacks any form of personality.

Now, don't get it twisted; Luda has tons of personality to share, but that personality almost always a happy-go-lucky, "**** this *****," "smoke this ganja," "drank these beers," and other subjects that follow these patterns. The thing is, we've always known what Ludacris, the rapper is all about; but what about the man underneath the guise?

I'd heard so many things about how this was Ludacris' most mature effort to date, and it is; however, that's not a giant step up from the aforementioned pimpcapades he's put on over the last six years. While Ludacris does finally offer some visits to the man behind the mask, the production he's chosen for these tracks seems to nearly always fail. Now, this could be due to one major thing; Ludacris has an ear for hot party beats, but he really doesn't know hot to get a premier beat when it comes to heart-felt, and/or introspective cuts.

Ludacris has been around for 6 years now and established himself as one of the most popular rappers around. He's released a new album almost every year but until this album "Release Therapy" it seems like his albums have always dealt with the same things. It's been fun hip hop, with cool wordplay and witty humour, Ludacris has almost been a cartonish carachter. In 2003 came his top album so far, "Chicken and Beer", not a very serious album, but with his trademark humour, upcoming album "Red Light District" was more of the same but weaker overall. Luda has also appeared on loads of other artists albums and there's where his biggest hits have been from. Missy Elliott's "One Minute Man", Usher's "Yeah" and now recently he appeared on Fergie's "Glamorous" (a brilliant song I hope will be a single). When Luda appears as a guest rapper and you get him in small amounts, he's always exellent but I always felt like he got too repetitive for a whole album. It really had to take something special in order to listen through a whole Ludacris album, even if the humour he uses is one of a kind. On "Release Therapy" it seems like Luda also realized that and for the first time of his career he's trying to be more serious. He cut off his trademark curls and you can see a very serious face on the album cover also. However, the whole album isn't dead serious, for good and bad. The first part of it is the neccesary party/club anthems. Like the x-rated "Girls Gone Wild" the Bedroom ballad/party song "End of the Night" with Bobby Valentino, "Grew Up a Screw Up" with Young Jeezy "Ultimate Satisfaction" and obviously the big hit (#1 on the Billboard charts) "Money Maker" produced by the Neptunes. Good song, but far from the best that Pharell and Chad have came up with.Read more ›
