Testimony is unlike anything else in urban music right now. The New Orleans singer discusses his life in the streets with brutal honesty on "Testify" and "Make It Home," and when he tells good girls "You Deserve" better, he really sounds like a thug with a heart of gold, trying to do the right thing even though it's against his nature. The inclusion of "I Luv This Sh*t" underlines Testimony's main weakness: Nothing here reaches the level of that hit, despite admirable attempts like "Ghetto." Perhaps he has a worthier goal in mind, like bringing a dose of reality back to contemporary R&B.
