TVT Records has forced its way into the rap genre by assaulting the music scene with several rather enjoyable hip-hop albums. Their dominance on hip-hop radio in the spring of 2002 resulted in TVT Records World Champions, an album highlighting the label's blossoming rap roster. Notable artists such as Naughty by Nature and tha Eastsidaz deliver solid tracks, proving why they have become TVT's goldmines. CMC open the album with a cocky rap track that displays the talents of members Ja Rule, Jody Mack, and 01 well, but fails to surprise the listener. There is very little presented on TVT Records World Champions to attract one's attention, and that in itself is puzzling since TVT are lauding themselves as the fastest-growing hip-hop label in years, yet it should be commended that the label is opening its doors to more than rock music.
