Ghetto Postage

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Master P

”All the fakers, we got rid of ‘em,” announces hip-hop mogul Master P at the top of the overwrought gangsta package Ghetto Postage. Said ”fakers” are former No Limit souljas like Mystikal and Fiend, who fled the ailing label for greener pastures. Girded by loyalists Snoop Dogg, Silkk the Shocker, and C-Murder, P tears into a 70-minute tribute to whodis, Bentleys, ice, and drama (i.e., homeys, cars, diamonds, and tumult). The occasional touch of humor — from the Latino postal worker who narrates the album to boasts of ”the black Slim Shady” — offers too-rare relief from stale rhymes and grooves. C+
