CD REVIEW | POP/HIP-HOP
Flo Rida’s ‘Wild Ones’
For Flo Rida, making music is boiled down to one simple strategy: have hook, will travel. The pop star/MC drops a half-hour set of familiar grooves attesting more to his hit-making prowess than his lyrical skills. No one is going to mistake this for hip-hop, as it’s obvious the Florida native is more interested in creating smash singles than crafting multi-dimensional songs. He has numerous potential chart-toppers here thanks to a well-tested formula.
