This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

November 27th – Ludacris releases his multi-platinum selling third album, “Word Of Mouf”, on Disturbing Tha Peace Records on this day in 2001.

The album would be Ludacris’ biggest selling set to date and would establish the Illinois born rapper as a major superstar in the industry.

His clever wordplay, original laidback flow and slightly offbeat delivery would spark smash hits off of “Word Of Mouf” such as “Rollout (My Business)”, “Area Codes”, featuring Nate Dogg, “Saturday (Oooh, Oooh)”, featuring Sleepy Brown and “Move”, featuring Mystikal And I-20.

Other guests on the “Word Of Mouf” would include Jermaine Dupri, Twista, Jagged Edge, Three 6 Mafia, Fate Wilson, Keon Bryce, 4-Ize and Chimere.

Production on “Word Of Mouf” would be handled by Jazze Pha, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Jook, Paul King, Organized Noize, KLC and Bangladesh.
