There's much to like about Too Hot for TV. However, there's just as much, if not, more to dislike about it as well!
First, the good. Diddy must be commended for basically taking every hot spot in America and giving them shine through their respective performers. New York gets Babs and Dylan. Detroit has Sara Stokes. Philly gets E Ness. Miami gets Fred. New Orleans has Young City.
You cannot say that they didn't get decent beats to perform on. Wyclef Jean blesses them with 'Do You Know', a track that hits with the same kind of power and feel as the Destiny's Child breakout 'No No No' remix. The Bad Boy house producers Dofat and Diddy himself lace them with some sounds including their lead single 'Bad Boy This, Bad Boy That', 'Living Legends', 'Tonight' and 'I Like Your Style'.
Sara Stokes, the singer whom went from a whiny girl that couldn't sing on hip hop tracks to a woman with pipes singing hooks, shines with a voice with more power than Faith Evans, the ORIGINAL R&B singer of Bad Boy.
Ness could easily be a star out of Philly if given more time on the mic without the rest of his Band-mates interrupting the drama he builds on the mic. 'Go Steady', featuring him and Sara, could easily vault both into superstardom with its smooth R&B sound, Stokes' crystal clear voice and Ness' verse that just screams 'crossover'
Now, the bad.... I didn't mention any of the rest of Da Band because they create part of the problem that really damages a potentially great record. Babs is fine as the heavy-spitting BK chick with as much aggression as Lil' Kim on her better days! Fred is a drastically unique voice that sets him apart from most everything you hear out there.

You have all this money and your show is run on MTV the question is with all the talent in this country with rappers who are right now nobodies but can rap why did you not pick 5 of those people and believe me there are 5 out of 5,000 that can rap.well get those 5 rappers put them over some DJ Premier beats RZA-HAVOC-DRE and let them kill it.In this instance you have some bad rappers with some truly god awful female singers that have no Talent then you make some stupid videos no tight ones all club or booty or whatever videos and you waste money on these idiots with no talent.

Honestly, I thought that the CD was going to be WACK. In actuality it turned out to be very impressive for a DEBUT. The MC's and the songstress had nice beats to rhyme over, but some of the lyrics were lackluster. The spin-off CD which took us through two seasons of Making of the Band on MTV turned out AVERAGE results. None of the tracks on Too Hot for TV goes out on a limb, but there's plenty of songs that'll have your head noddin'. Highlights include the oh-so sexy "I Like Your Style", "Living Legends", the Wyclef produced "Do You Know", and the solo by Sara ft. Ness which is entitled "Go Steady". "Hold Me Down" is also a song worth listening to eventhough it doesn't have a hook. Babs definitely spit on this track and she's showing the world why Diddy asked her to come back to the show. Last but not least on my list of tracks is the song "Tonight". It's definitely a club banger.

Although I've given praise to the CD, there are definitely reasons as to why the CD isn't a five. I gave Babs her props for shinning on "Hold Me Down," but some of her lyrics became redundant on other songs as she talked about blowing smoke, haze, etc. Chooper aka Young City kinda' put me in the mind of the Hot Boyz with his tired lyrics about drugs, women, cars, and blingin'. Sara and Dylan were not featured enough on the CD. If you ask me they were short changed. Dylan was one of the hottest people on the entire CD when he was featured. His ability to carry a tune and his reggae flow definitely brought flavor to every song that he was able to get a word in on.
As stated above, the CD does have more than one single. It isn't a hip hop classic, but it'll definitley leave you feeling satisfied.

Didn't the Osbourne's teach us anything? Record labels don't seem to have realized yet that people's desire to watch people fight, swear and yell every week has no correlation to their taste for music. However, since Making the Band was completely based around creating a music group, and in the second season, creating a record, this album is more inevitable than Kelly Osbourne's debut. Da Band received rave reviews for their MTV reality series making the band. On the show, they often looked horrible, fought, cried, yelled or were humiliated. The group, put together by P. Diddy, spent the second season creating an album. On the show, they were portrayed, probably not unrealistically, working hard and endlessly on the CD. However, this only makes the outcome seem more sad and pathetic. It's hard to imagine how anyone, with cameras being stuck in their face and millions of dollars worth of pressure riding on their could make a fantastic CD with people they hardly know. P Diddy envisioned the group as the next fugees but on this cd they sound much more like the new Otwon. The cd lacks grit, spunk or interesting production. The main problems with the CD are the group's lack of unity and direction. With I singer, Sara Stokes, I female rapper, Babs, and four male rappers, Young City, Freddrick, Ness and Dylan, the tracks are often over stuffed and confusing. Nobody gets enough time to really perform. The members individually do have talent. The most striking is Babs, whose tomboyish spunk, whiny voice and thumping flow are incredible. Young City has a unique southern drawl and his personality, which made him the star of the show, makes brief and well appreciated appearances in his raps. Freddrick has a gritty, scratchy voice and a fast flow.Read more ›
