Diary of a Sinner: 1st Entry songs Product Information
The title of this debut album by southern rapper Petey Pablo tells a lot about the context. Rather than just a bunch of randomly assembled rhymes, DIARY OF A SINNER is a concept album of sorts, in which a gangsta slowly but surely unravels the complex, unsavory details of his life, from the first fall from grace on through. There's a strong religious underpinning to the album as well, as the conflict between faith in God and the pursuit of the gangsta lifestyle is reiterated throughout these tracks. There's also a gospel sensibility that crops up occasionally amid the blazing hip-hop tracks. The end of this sinner's story is a happy one, though, as Pablo delivers "My Testimony," stepping back from the violence and taking solace in the love of his family. It doesn't hurt matters that Timbaland offers some of the distinctive, sonically rich production that is his trademark, giving DIARY OF THE SINNER a compelling audio sheen. DIARY OF A SINNER: 1ST ENTRY was nominated for the 2003 Grammy Awards for Best Rap Album. Personnel: Gene Torres (bass guitar). Audio Mixers: Chris Ribando; Jimmy Douglass; Patrick Viala; Richard Travali; Timbaland; Brian Stanley.

His flow is fluid, hungry and , most crucially, diverse..." Entertainment Weekly (12/14/01, p. 86) - "... Part party starter, ROmeo, and repenter, he unveils the power of a batting champ, nearly hitting for the cycle on this dynamic debut... " - Rating: B+.

||Raise Up!!!!! Petey really told yall!!!!|
Diary of a Sinner: 1st Entry songs How can you go past this? be honest. One of the best rap releases of 2001 without doubt. From beginning to end, petey delivers the tracks that keep tha party pumpin and the crowd jumpin as well as the tracks that keep the listener's attention for other, more sentimental and emotional reasons.
