The 25 Best No Limit Albums

7. Silkk The Shocker, Charge It 2 Da Game (1998)


Best Songs: "It Ain't My Fault," "Just Be Straight With Me," "Give Me The World," "If I Don't Gotta," "Let Me Hit It"

People like to clown Silkk’s rapping ability in 2013, but in 1998 you couldn’t tell him nothing. He was the man. Ladies loved him, girls adored him. Brands wanted him to hawk their products, and he was the default southern artist everyone called for a remix verse. He was on top of the world. The album that put him there? Charge It 2 Da Game.

His first single, “Just Be Straight With Me,” featured a young Destiny’s Child, and his second single, “It Ain’t My Fault,” featured Mystikal and was a top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. The album moved an astonishing 288,000 copies in its first week and went on to sell almost two million copies in total. Album cuts like “Let Me Hit It,” “Give Me The World” and “If I Don’t Gotta” rounded out Silkk’s sophomore set, making it one of the brighter spots of No Limit’s catalog.
