So High [Feat. Trey Songz And 8ball]
Label: Atlantic/Slip N' Slide
After coming up for some pop air on Thug Matrimoney, the legendary Trick Daddy is back with an album "strictly for the thugs." The usual Southern gangsta signifiers are here -- tricked-out cars ("Chevy"), unfair incarcerations ("Straight Up") and regionalism ("The Commentator") -- and everyone from Young Buck to Chamillionare pay respect. Nothing here touches the humor of "I'm a Thug," the creativity of "Sugar" or the politics of "Amerika," but there are some bangers ("Bet That," "Born a Thug") and an extremely explicit "love" ballad ("Tonight") that features "bad bitch" Trina.
