Beenie Man - Tropical Storm (2002) Retail CD
Tropical Storm comes after the stunning Art & Life album, that masterfully mixed ragga with Hip-hop-pop but is a bit of a disappointment. This album from the productive singer/toaster essentially tries to repeat the recipe, but the ingredients that worked so well in 2000 have now gone stale. Beenie Man's once again teamed up with the ubiquitous producers The Neptunes (aka N*E*R*D), but with mixed results. Their production with Janet Jackson (Feel It Boy) is just a pampered superstar playing ragga girl but the hard-hitting, mad bleeping "Bad Girl" shows that the Philadelphian production duo couldmore… hold their own in any Kingston studio. Beenie Man's collaboration with the UK's So Solid Crew is also worthwhile but the Jamaican singer seems so confused by their typically manic beats and deep warp bass that all he can seem to mutter is "Yagga Y", the title of the track. No matter, it works as a hardcore speaker buster, the sort of thing you want to hear tearing down the walls in a south London club. Beenie Man has always had at least one eye on the international hip-hop market, hence the involvement of sex kitten for rent Lil' Kim on the pumping "Fresh From Yard", produced by DJ Clue. Ironically, but not surprisingly, the best tracks are free from stars such as the hypnotic "Bossman" and the sweet "You Babe". Lyrically Beenie Man has got caught in a lyrical rut, obsessing over the clichés of gangsta status, guns and street life as compared to the positivity of tracks like "Jamaica Way" and "Girls Dem Sugar" from Art & Life. In truth it sounds like Beenie Man has been getting his reality from MTV and chart shows rather than from the natural font of his home turf. --Jake Barnes
