Record Label: Def Jam
Originally issued in 2000, Back for the First Time is the official debut studio album from three-time Grammy winning hip-hop artist Ludacris. Home to the two popular singles "What's Your Fantasy" and "Southern Hospitality," the album has hard-hitting keys, rhythmic snares and more than enough booming bass for the beat junkies, and plenty of tight lyrics for hip-hop purists.
UGK, Foxy Brown, and Pastor Troy all stop by to lend a lyrical hand, but Ludacris is the star of the show here. With a lyrical style and charisma that transcends coastal allegiances, Back For The First Time is flush with entertaining skits and moving music. In celebration of Def Jam's 30th Anniversaery UMe will be reissuing this classic debut album back on vinyl and giving the cover a 3D lenticular treatment. A must have for any hip-hop fan!
