Review

Only two singles came from Chingy's second album, 2004's Powerballin', neither of which matched the successes or strengths of Jackpot's "Right Thurr" and "One Call Away." Hoodstar makes it more apparent that the St. Louis MC's overnight popularity was like lightning in a bottle. Like a number of rap albums from the distant and recent past (Cassidy's Split Personality, for instance), Hoodstar is broken into sections with themes, but the themes in this case -- the "hood" side and the "star" side -- aren't all that distinct. The hood side has songs titled "Hands Up" and "Nike Aurr's & Crispy Tee's," while the star side has songs titled "Ass N da Aurr" and "Brand New Kicks," so we're not exactly dealing with a modern-day Death Certificate. Once again, Chingy does his best to balance his softer side (which he still does best, as in the Tyrese feature "Pullin' Me Back") with some menace (as in the Three 6 Mafia feature "Club Gettin' Crowded"). Timbaland, Jermaine Dupri, Mr. Collipark, Mannie Fresh, Kwamé, and longtime collaborators Trak Starz make for an impressive lineup of producers. ~ Andy Kellman
