Back for the First Time (2000)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Oct 17, 2000; Lead Performance: Ludacris; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Add this Atlanta native to the list of the year's most notable hip-hop newcomers. Ludacris's debut, Back for the First Time, is a randy charmer largely because of the contrast between his dirty, down-home raps and the sleek future-shock beats of producers like Timbaland and the Neptunes. A remix of his smash ''What's Your Fantasy,'' containing a thrillingly crass verse by Foxy Brown, boosts the album's potent, hardcore sex appeal. B+
