This aptly titled disc features an urban music first -- a full-length collaboration between an R&B star (R. Kelly) and a rap star (Jay-Z). For fans who like their soul thugged-out and their hip-hop melodic, this is truly the best of both worlds.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pre-release copy and I have to say there was only a few songs where I thought the beats were off. All in all I give it a 4.

These two are my favorite artist from each genre... but... they could have put some more into it. Don't get me wrong... you can let the album play... But if you are fans of these two... you KNOW they could have done better!

On this entire album Jay-z shows off his patinant swagger dropping 16's like their to heavy for average hands to hold. R. Kelly was the icing on the cake but no Jay no album... The intro is bananas and "Get this money" is fire

Jay z much love to ya, you are the best lyracist on dry land, R. Kelly, your work is beautiful, but I should have never watched that video tape of him it really gave me a bad impression every time I hear his voice let alone his name I get the chills. 2 words SUPER FREAK. If Jay z wasn't behind this album I wouldn't have purchased it. But for the most its HOTT!!!!!

With R.Kelly and Jay Z on every song, this album has to be good. I've heard a few songs already and they've been hits. Go and get it!!
