We gave it an B+

It’s the women — both the young thangs and old schoolers — who stand out on the all-star album Sunset Park. Groove Theory, Adina Howard, and Aaliyah offer jazzy respites from the testosterone-swelled rap and funk-hop of 2Pac and Mobb Deep; MC Lyte (with Xscape) reasserts herself with the catchy ”Keep On, Keepin’ On”; and Queen Latifah reclaims her throne with the slinkily rough ”Elements I’m Among.” B+
