Thug Lord: The New Testament Review

by Jon Azpiri

The second album by Yukmouth is just a shadow of the rapper's previous work as a solo artist and with the group Luniz. Yukmouth spends most of his time on Thug Lord dissing other rappers rather than focusing on what he has to say. Tracks like "Regime Killers 2001" and "Oh Boy!" take aim at all the usual suspects: fake rappers and music execs who keep true rappers like himself down. There are a few highlights, however. "World's Most Wanted" cleverly interpolates the theme song from the soap opera The Young and the Restless and "Puffin Lah" is a steel drum-filled ode to marijuana use. Despite the occasional bright spot, Thug Lord shows just how far Yukmouth has fallen since his days with Luniz.
