Think what you want about Ludacris, but no one can deny that he is hip-hop's king of choruses. Luda's hooks are big, brassy, and loud; they're tailor-made for club crowds and radio programmers. Some songs, like "Get Back," practically sound like one long hook, every line a potential anthem. At times, it's easy to forget that Ludacris knows how to rhyme too. His taffy-pull verbal style isn't as lyrically intricate as Nas's (who appears on "Virgo") and can't match Trick Daddy's thuggish bravado ("Hopeless"), but few other rappers exude his level of charisma. On "Number One Spot," Luda acts like he's strong-arming his way to the top, but it's really charm that propels the charge. Even on a song like "Two Miles an Hour," dedicated to "those who spend more on their car than their relationship," he's more clever than clownish in selling the concept. Red Light District has its share of filler, but, track for track, Ludacris still delivers satisfaction. --Oliver Wang

There are five brilliant tracks:
Number One Spot: Fantasically upbeat track with samples from Austin Powers theme tune.
Get Back: Another upbeat track (a theme of the album) the first single release, the varying speeds really make this work.
Blueberry Yum Yum: A very simplistic track but quick lyrics and subtle beats and background sounds makes a suprising style change.
Child of the Night: another more chilled slightly less energetic song featuring nate dogg. more harmonious song, showing luda with a very slightly softer side
Pimpin all over the world:
Back up to speed again and luda abck at his boasting best, this is what ludacris has come to be all about, infectious hooks and choruses, a sure fire hit (if radio will ever play it)
All songs on this album are there on merit, no fillers, non that let the side down, just all possible hit singles!
If your into havin a good time, crackin jokes and enjoying life, then Ludacris is the man you should be listening too.
The Red Light District is one of Ludacris' best albums to date.
With a large mix of tracks, those whiich get you smiling
such as Get Back and Number 1 spot, and those which get ya thinkin eg Child of the night and Hopeless.
The great thing about Ludacris is his superior articulate dictation of rhymes and choruses. The dynamic nature of his rapping will grab your attention, and not bore you with the sound of monotonose tone or droning.
In the Red Light District, the beats have deffinatly improved since Chicken and Bear, deliverying a truley satisfying collection of tracks. I mean you got the cool west cost style song Spur of the moment, along side the brilliant Number 1 spot, and seductive Child of the night.
As for colaborations, this album does disapoint in that field. The best people her colaborated with are DMX and NAS,not as good as his last album where he did a great song with Snoop Dog, and even 50 cent.
Another reason why im feeling these tracks so much is because I saw most of them live at his concert in Hammersmith. His lyrical skill was better than I thought, and he didnt need any back up fron DTP to sing his songs for him (not like 50 cent and the G-unit).
Now your probably thinking I dont like 50 cent, so thats why i'm bigging up Luda. To be honest with you, I think 50 has better beats, but a terrible voice. Just imagine Ludacris' next album produce by Dr Dre, well we can always dream.
If your not too keen on Luda, then at least by his single "Number 1 spot", which comes with Get back and The potion, 3 of the best songs on the album.
The gets off to a really good start with the intro which is just Luda flowing for about a minute and a half. Then it goes into the song with the hottest beat on the album, "Number One Spot" which is produced by Eminem's DJ, DJ Green Lantern. After that is the lead single "Get Back" which in my mind is a pretty good song. "Put Your Money" is a track featuring DMX, the lyrics and beat are there but the chorus gets kind of annoying. "Blueberry Yum Yum" is the track that stands out the most to me because Luda finally gets away from simple punch lines and uses a strange flow and voice, it's my favorite because of that. "Pass Out" is a kind of a crunk song. "Large Amounts" is about exactly what it says, large amounts on money, it has nice lyrics buy an annoying chorus. The last four tracks "Pimpin' All Over The World," "Two Miles An Hour," "Hopeless f/ Trick Daddy," and "Virgo f/ Nas & Doug E. Fresh" are all really good songs to finish the album out.
Overall I gave this album a 3/5 because I felt Ludacris is taking more and more steps back with each of his releases. I will admit that it's better than Chicken N Beer but not by much. Some of Luda's punches are getting old and he said nothing that we haven't already heard before. I would suggest this album to all Ludacris fans, only some regular rap fans will like this album. It just kind of depends on what style you like.
Top 5 Songs:
1. Blueberry Yum Yum
2. Number One Spot
3. Pimpin' All Over The World
5. Child Of The Night
The former Atlanta DJ, born Chris Bridges, recorded his first album in 2000, which was repackaged by Def Jam, and then followed up by "Word of Mouf" in 2001 and "Chicken-N-Beer" in 2003. This fourth album does not disappoint, thanks to the catchy "Number One Spot", "Get back", "The Potion" and "Pimpin' All Over the World".
Other stand-out tracks are the quirky "Blueberry Yum Yum" which will repeat on you; the R&B based "Child of the Night" with Nate Dogg and "Spur of the Moment" with DJ Quik; and the laugh out loud "Large Amounts"; but my favorite track is "Two Miles An Hour"
The explicit lyrics make it a bad choice for a family car deck, but once the kiddies aren't around, play it loud and sing along.
