Consumer Guide Reviews:

Confessions of Fire [Untertainment/Epic, 1998]
cheap sensationalism has its own rewards ("Feels Good," "Me, My Moms & Jimmy," "The Wrong Ones") *

S.D.E. [Epic/Untertainment, 2000] Neither

Purple Haze [Roc-A-Fella, 2004]
Musicality covers over only so much gunrunning and sexual exploitation, though more than I would have figured ("Girls," "Get Down"). *
