The downside of having a string of mega-selling recordings is that the pressure to top your previous numbers increases with each new release. Ludacris seems to be feeling it on The Red Light District, which finds him trying out a different producer on each track, from Timbaland and Organized Noize right through the Medicine Men and Needlz. Even DJ Green Lantern is given a crack on Number One Spot, on which he embarrassingly loops the played-out Soul Bossa Nova hook like he's never heard the Dream Warriors. Only the bumpin' Get Back sounds like a hit, although the prominent use of "muthafucka" makes it unlikely to get play outside the clubs. Pointless collabos with Trick Daddy, Nate Dogg, DJ Quick and Doug E. Fresh might've been an asset a decade ago, but now they just make the disc seem dated. DMX who?
