After TVT Record’s platinum success of Me & My Brother, the Ying Yang Twins have released the quasi follow up, My Brother & Me (TVT). The 10-Track remix CD includes a bonus DVD with videos and performances for true Ying Yang Twins fans. The album is full of street singles and club bangers with popular ghetto production by Collipark Records, Just Blaze, Lil Jon, and Dani Kartel.
Strip Clubs DJs nationwide will be more than amped to spin typical Ying Yang tracks that survive from the crunked up, bootyshaking beats layered with the basic, sex driven lyrical content. Juvenile’s “Slow Motion” with Ying Yang, Wyclef, and UTP along with
“Take Ya Clothes Off” featuring Bone Crusher have already received heavy rotation in the South. Yonnie’s “In Da Club” featuring the Ying Yang Twins and “Do It”, which remixes the DJ Jimmy classic “Do It Baby Stick It to Do It Baby Shake It” are also bound to become street singles and booty club favorites.
There is even a little flava for Northern heads on My Brother & Me. Produced by Just Blaze, “Get Crunk Shorty” features Nick Cannon, ahem, Ying Yang, and Fat Man Scoop. Although Nick Cannon is not considered a lyricist, a verse on a Ying Yang LP can’t hurt cause there is no one to steal his shine on this track. Fat Joe truly blesses Ying Yang with the hottest verse on the “Salt Shaker Remix”which also features Murphy Lee, Juvenile and Lil Jon. His verse on this played out hit makes it bearable to hear it another thousand times.
Overall, My Brother & Me was not a waste of TVT Record’s money or energy. This “get crunk” CD definitely has a place in the clubs; booty clubs especially. For private strip parties you can put this one in, let it ride, and enjoy the show. Ying Yang Twin’s My Brother & Me will make sure you get your money’s worth.
