The title of the first track is the tip-off: ”It’s LL and Santana” (Juelz, not Carlos). Yup, this is one of those big-name-guest-star-choked affairs, featuring the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx, and others. Too bad LL Cool J feels he needs the extra wattage, because Todd Smith’s best moments come when he raps alone, letting his inimitably confident flow shine. Some of these jams will no doubt click with the club crowd, but we wish our man would jettison the human baggage, team up with his old producer Rick Rubin, and knock us out again.
