R.Kelly & Jay-Z

Two of Hip Hop's superstars have joined forces to bring you "The Best Of Both Worlds." R. Kelly and Jay-Z have enjoyed tremendous success o­n their own with numerous albums and have previously collaborated o­n the remix of Kelly's chart topper "Fiesta." This album is the first full collaborative album for both artists. Jay-Z raises the roof with his lyrical flow and Kelly compliments it with his seductive r&b vocals. The title track hooks you with it's funky beat. The duo gets groovy o­n "Take You Home With Me A.K.A. Body." where Kelly particularly stands out with his smooth flow. "Break Up To Make Up" is a disappointment lyrically and musically. "The Streets" gives the listener some insight o­n the thug life. Beanie Sigel drops some rhymes o­n "Green Light" which is accompanied by some guitar riffs to rock things up. The eccentric Lil Kim' teams up with Jay and Kelly o­n the hip "Shake Ya Body." Other notable tracks include "Get This Money" and "Honey." This album could have been much better if they had incorporated more of the hooks that Jay has used o­n some of his previous hits. It lacks originality but does have it's moments nevertheless.
