Celebrate the birth of Hip Pop!
There is so much more to this girl than "Lip Gloss". Alot of people clown her or don't take her seriously and just straight up won't give her a chance because of that single. I must admit, when I first heard it, I hated it too. Then it started growing on me. I know I ain't the only one this happened too! It's catchy! Then she dropped "G-Slide" and I straight up wasn't feelin' that either so I just kind of wrote her off and said to myself, "She ain't gon' get her album released droppin' crap like this." "Shawty Get Loose" leaked on the Internet and I still wasn't impressed. I didn't even download it at first because I was turned off that she jumped on the bandwagon and went to T-Pain for a hit. T-Pain gets on my nerves aside from other hot songs that he's been apart of (such as Britney Spears' "Hot As Ice" and E-40's "U And Dat"). It wasn't until after hearing the final version of "Shawty" (with Chris Brown added) several times that it began to grow on me and I said "ok, this isn't half bad." Then I seen the video and I instantly became an official fan. That video is hot! I love how she spits on the track. So now I'm wanting to hear more and I get somewhat excited when I find out on Billboard that "Shawty" is doing well and that her album will finally get released after being pushed back from last year.
So I buy the deluxe edition of the album because I wanted the bonus DVD. That's the one I suggest you buy because you're getting your money's worth. You also get a cling in the deluxe edition. You get a real inside look at Lil Mama and it makes me like her more. Her family (such as her mother, her father and her siblings) and other insiders speak on here.Read more ›

Go copy it, trust not a waste of money!
She lapses into cliches too often -- does she really need to remind us she's the "Voice Of The Young People" on EVERY track? - but there's no doubt she'll become better with time. Like just about every pop and hip hop CD, VYP's main problem is that there's too much filler clogging up the middle of the disc. Three or four songs could have been jettisoned and you'd have a tighter CD.
Parents, you can safely buy this for your kids if they're fairly mature. There's no profanity, but some of the material about her upbringing might be too heavy for the younger set. However, I can honsetly say that grown-up hiphoppers need have no fear of "Lip Gloss". It is NOT representative of the cd as a whole.
All the songs on the album are just not good, they are not high energy and they try to copy other people's music. She has no unique style. The only track worth listening to is the one with chris brown, because he is a real artist and saves the track from sucking. So just down load that one song on the mp3 store and thats it. Lip gloss has to be the most annoying song in the world and you know that since she is 18 now, her next album is not going to be bubble gum rap about lip gloss anymore. Fits right into the typical stereotypes.
Worst judge on the face of this planet too, should get kicked off ABDC.

I ordered this CD because of "Shawty get loose". This song is great to run and exercise to. I was to purchase the single for 99 cents. For $2 I could order the whole CD. Read morePublished on May 10, 2009 by Tyler
VYP is an excellent cd and definitely worth buying. What I love about the cd is that it gets deep and theres also fun songs too. L.I.F.E. is the best song on the album. Read morePublished on September 7, 2008 by Candice
