Even after releasing more than an album each year since 1997, Trick Daddy
kept up the quality control with 2002's Thug Holiday
. The production's a bit amateurish and a bit skeletal in places, but the South's most consistent rapper still has a lot to offer, especially when he gets together with Cee-Lo
from Goodie Mob
and Big Boi
on "In da Wind." The title track is a bit too dramatic for such a usually enjoyable hip-hop name, but great party tracks like "Play No Games" and "All I Need" more than make up for a few half-baked message tracks.
