Album Review

Erick Sermon's fifth solo album marks his move over to Universal Motown, after a two-album stint spent with J Records. As most could have only expected, Chilltown, New York offers nothing fancy. Sermon produces everything and is helped out on the mike -- yet is rarely outshined by -- the likes of Talib Kweli, Redman, Keith Murray, and Def Squad newcomer Sy Scott. He has yet to coast on his legacy; actually, he has to be one of the first MCs to underestimate it, claiming to be a 15-year veteran when he could lay claim to close to two decades of business. Chilltown won't be thought of as a classic down the line, but it hardly weakens the MC/producer's reputation. It's unfortunate that most will remember the album for "Feel It," a slight sop to the charts. Those who have been following Sermon all along, however, will see Chilltown, Rovi
