13 not so lucky for LL

First off I have to say that I wasn't upset with LL Cool J's newest studio outing, Exit 13, but the majority is very typical Cool James fodder.  Parents beware, most tracks are sexually driven.  The ladies do love him after all.  However, as LL has mentioned in recent interviews, this is his last album with long time label Def Jam (the Thirteenth in fact.)  With this newest project LL brings in heavy hitters 50 Cent, Wyclef Jean, Richie Sambora and Funkmaster Flex to create a sound that is fuller than any of his recent albums.  The only beef I have is that a couple songs (particularly the Wyclef track) sound as though he is trying on someone else's style, someone else's flow.  This isn't to say I didn't like these tracks, but it was certainly a stretch for Cool James.  All in all, Exit 13 is a respectable project for the man that put Def Jam on the map, and if interviews are to be believed LL has more 50-inspired tracks waiting for the next leg of his musical journey.
