Just when we thought that Ludacris had forgotten his rap roots and turned all teeny-pop (what with his collaborations with Justin Bieber and co), has the ‘Stand Up’ performer returned with something fairly gritty. Featuring Young Jeezy, ‘Raised In The South’ is an angry track that’s there to remind his audience where he came from, and that Luda is back in business.
However, this fails short of any high expectations I had. Gone are the classic ditties along the lines of ‘Stand Up’, ‘Southern Fried Intro’ and ‘B R Right’; instead they’ve been replaced by a fairly convulsed and ferocious track that really doesn’t make any sense.
Sorry Luda, back to the drawing board on this one I’m afraid. Take a listen for yourself and let us know your views:
