Ludacris knows that rap is essentially a man’s world -- and the three-time Grammy winner is doing something about it. On his eighth album, the multi-platinum rapper wanted to level the playing field a bit, so he crafted Battle Of The Sexes, a spirited collection that gives men and women equal billing.

"Battle Of The Sexes is getting a male and a female perspective all on one ... Read more in Amazon's Ludacris Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Another multi-platinum album has been completed. The creator is Ludacris. The album is "Red Light District". The result is another Ludacris masterpiece.


Think what you want about Ludacris, but no one can deny that he is hip-hop's king of choruses. Luda's hooks are big, brassy, and loud; they're tailor-made for club crowds and radio programmers. Some songs, like "Get Back," practically sound like one long hook, every line a potential anthem. At times, it's easy to forget that Ludacris knows how to rhyme too. His taffy-pull verbal style isn't as lyrically intricate as Nas's (who appears on "Virgo") and can't match Trick Daddy's thuggish bravado ("Hopeless"), but few other rappers exude his level of charisma. On "Number One Spot," Luda acts like he's strong-arming his way to the top, but it's really charm that propels the charge. Even on a song like "Two Miles an Hour," dedicated to "those who spend more on their car than their relationship," he's more clever than clownish in selling the concept. Red Light District has its share of filler, but, track for track, Ludacris still delivers satisfaction. --Oliver Wang

Customer Reviews

Songs like "Number One Spot" and "Get Back" are very up-tempo songs with a lot of energy.
Bill O'Riely
Ludacris is considerably better than that and Red Light District is a good album - second best behind Word of Mouf.
Sir Armalot
I don't see how a rapper can talk about doing things with men for a whole song and then say he's just kidding.

A lot of rap cds these days are thick in production, but thin on content. Well, Ludacris is the opposite, but not in terms of music. Luda's attributes are primarily length, while thickness isn't something he's known for. But who cares? Most rappers are neither long, nor thick. The fact that Ludacris is so long (we're talking a foot, buddy) more than makes up for his Sharpie marker thinness. Yeah, we cut (and I do mean cut, at least from my end), but I'm not about to put my man down because I never got paid; I never expected money. In fact, aside from some internal bleeding and an upset stomach a la George Michael, I'm quite satisfied with the experience I had. Luda is truly a man of the 21st century: he doesn't discriminate. That you can get with girls and guys alike just shows that you are open-minded, so I'll never put Luda down.

"If your spinnin rims spin counterclockwise...you are not pimpin!!!!"

Ludacris returns ( did he ever leave?!?) for his fifth studio album. Yes, fifth album, in four years as well as a group album and numerous guest appearances. It seems as if we should be Ludacris'd out by now but we aren't amazingly. He seems to reinvent his flow on guest appearances and they indeed increase anticipation for his albums ( Lovers & Friends, Sugar, Stomp, Oh, Whole City Behind Us...etc). So does this album deliver even with the onslaught of Ludacris? You bet it does. Ludacris steps his game up lyrically on this one. Instead of constant braggadocio and game spitting he talks about life a little on this album. He still gets down with his flow and with rewind worthy lyrics. The beats are tight too but kinda chill, for Ludacris standards, but I guess that was part of the goal for this album.

The album, at first, is kinda hard to listen to; unlike his others that you could just jump right into. If you just scanned the album you would think it was wack, as I did at first. But give it some time..it'll grow on you. Luda delivers on tracks like the Nate Dogg collaboration Child Of The Night, and gets down with Trick Daddy on Hopeless. Spur Of The Moment is pimped out west coast beat perfect for sippin on lemonade chillin on the porch. It's a very nice feel good track...arguably the best song on the album. It features the smooth DJ Quik on the track; although he doesn't produce the track, it sure sounds as if he did. Very smooth track. Pimpin All Over The World is another great track with a great beat and pimpin lyrics. To me, the best song on the album would have to be The Potion, a Timbaland beat. Luda's flow on this joint is flawless and the beat is bananas.

Its hard to dispute that Chicken N Beer was not his worst album. So with that said, Red Light District is much better. For better or worse, less skits and more music. Basically Luda is starting all over again. Back for the 1st time and Word of Mouf can be argued as his best, all depends on opinion. This one is not as solid as those 2 but not a disappointment like Chicken N Beer. There's no regular guests spots on this album all new faces. They do a good job, but I wonder what a Luda album with no guest spots would sound like. For the most part there are no songs that you just cant listen to but there is some filler, maybe 2 or 3 songs. He's not really rappin' bout the south all that much anymore, its more about how much money he has. Which is a lil' surprising because usually an artist starts rappin' about all his $, he loses all hunger and makes no good music. This album is an exception to the rule. All in all a solid album, worth the buy.

Okay. Ludacris without a doubt has skills but he sometimes fails to make a good album. His first two were great but Chicken N Beer was horrible and he keeps the madness moving with this album. The Good: the intro wasnt bad plus it leads off into the second single and one of the better cuts on the album, Number One Spot. His first single Get Back was alright although it wasnt a groundbreaking cut its cool(why does that video look like a cheap imitation of Redman's I'll Be Dat?). Child Of The Night featuring Nate Dogg is another notable cut and DJ Quik joins in on the fun on Spur Of the Moment. Pimpin All Over The World is another highlight and will somebody PLEASE tell Honey Mike that he is not funny! Honorable Mention: The Potion. The Bad: A classic example of beat wasting is practiced on Put Your Money feat DMX. Nice beat but the bland lyrics about compulsive gambling make it filler. Pass Out is another dull crunk wannabe that should have been disposed of with the quickness. Two Miles An Hour is boring. Not because of the laid back beat by DJ Toomp but because the lethargic rhymes by Ludacris and how the hell do you sign your name in the streets? With pee? The Ugly: Blueberry Yum Yum, featuring Sleepy Brown is the worst smoke joint ever made! The corny beat and the stupid wordplay by Luda makes you want to quit smoking actually. Who Not Me featuring Small World and Dollar Boy is the second worse track on the album as the song itself sounds like it was put together in five minutes. Hopeless with Trick Daddy is dull as s***. I admire them for attempting to talk about something of substance but the song was too lifeless to get into. Dishonorable Mentions: Large Amounts(GARBAGE) and Virgo feat Nas and Doug E.Read more ›
