Ying Yang’s Kaine and D-Roc get crunk like Lil Jon, but on their fourth LP, they also prove they have something in common with Common: They can be conscious without being soft. U.S.A. (United State of Atlanta) is full of bangin’ club cuts (including the Miami-style ”Shake,” with Pitbull), plus a filthy trilogy of headboard knockers. But there are also thoughtful songs like ”Live Again,” which features vocals from Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and lyrics about trying to get out of the strip-club life — if only for a moment.
