Pain Is Love
Label: RAL (Rush Associated Label)
Ja's third LP finds him moving further into thug-love territory, sporting raspy romance jams like "Always On Time" with Ashanti and "I'm Real" featuring J-Lo. Irv Gotti's synthesized production is undeniably hot throughout, full of chirpy electronics and bass-heavy beats. Also includes a posthumous Tupac appearance on "So Much Love."
