We gave it a C+

This hip-hop redneck became the rock & roll bad boy of his generation with ’98’s ”Devil Without a Cause,” an inspired, bird flipping gauntlet of rap-metal perfectly suited for the ”Springer Break” set. Too bad his first postplatinum salvo is such a chunk of sludge. While his signature shoutouts to the lowbrow joys of Stroh’s, AC/DC, and porn are always welcome, the beefy Metallica samples make ”American Bad Ass” collapse from its own weight.
