The first full-length duet album by rapper Bow Wow and R&B singer Omarion, FACE OFF sounds more like a pair of buddies having fun and experimenting in the studio than a major album by either party, and that is a huge part of its charm. At a time when too many hip-hop albums take themselves far too seriously (call it the P. Diddy effect), 2007's FACE OFF harks back to the casual, lighthearted spirit of hip-hop's past. Highlights include "Girlfriend," the sly "Can't Get Tired of Me" and "Take Off Your Clothes," as well as the T-Pain-produced first single "He Ain't Gotta Know." FACE OFF was also released in a two-disc limited edition set that included a bonus DVD.
