*** Ahmad, “Ahmad,” Giant. At 18, this South-Central rapper may seem a bit young for nostalgia pangs, but his hit single “Back in the Day"--a yearning for a simpler times--is still very convincing.

New albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).
