B. Cox looks back on Ludacris' sophomore album Word of Mouf as it turns 20. After a commercially successful debut the previous year, the Atlanta emcee burst onto the scene with an equally, if not more impressive follow up. Keeping up with his theme of being braggadocious, witty and comedic at times, he successfuly weaved sharp puchlines and hard hitting metaphors into hits for the clubs and streets equally as well. Working with a all-star cast of producers such as Bangladesh, Jazzie Pha, Timbaland, Swizz Beats and Organized Noize, he took a step up to prove to audiences and critics alike that the South had elite emcess and versatility just like their coastal counterparts. Selling almost four millions records, it's Ludacris' best-selling album to date.
