It's crazy how hard people fall in hiphop. Before Ja Rule, the multi-platinum rapper of the day was that gruff, crazy, barking-ass DMX. His Ruff Ryders family, which also included Eve and the Lox, wasn't doing so bad either. Now DMX is stealing cars, Eve's on Aftermath, apparently bound to a deal that requires her to collaborate with Gwen Stefani every two years, and from their recent complaints to the media, we gather the president of the Lox's label, Interscope, hasn't been returning their calls. This album is called Redemption. They need it. Of 18, there are maybe four dope tracks that will remind you of why the motorcycle-loving crew were once popular (including newcomer Kartoon's Blood In The Streets and DMX's sole 16-bar verse). Otherwise, it's just generic street shit.
