POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

July 26, 1998|Brett Johnson

* Kane & Abel, "Am I My Brother's Keeper?," No Limit/Priority. Guest appearances by Mystikal, Snoop Dogg and Master P overshadow the twin brothers on their second album. Hackneyed verses about weed smoking, seduction and hard-core posturing trip over meandering piano and hollow synths. Add a contradictory concept of ghetto spiritualism ("Only God Knows") and the result is some agonizingly uninspired gangsta rap.

*

Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor) to four stars (excellent).
