Before The Solution
Label: eOne Music
First, the numbers: 12 songs, 50 minutes, 39 guest spots, 14 platinum certified artists, seven producers and three executive producers – all of which is to say that the album is all over the place. Miami hip-hop DJ/curator extraordinaire Khaled (rhymes with salad) draws talent from the East (Juelz, Jadakiss), West (The Game), South (Lil Wayne, Trick Daddy) and Midwest (Bone Thugs-N-Harmony) for a collection of stylistically schizophrenic posse cuts. It's all over the map, and it's all good.
