Styles P, ‘Time Is Money’ (Ruff Ryders/Interscope)

Originally scheduled for March 2005, Styles P’s long-delayed sophomore album wasn’t worth the wait. Here, the least flashy but usually most consistent member of veteran Yonkers, New York trio the Lox falls back on weak R&B choruses (from Gerald Levert, Jagged Edge, Mario Winans) and faux-anthemic, sub-Swizz Beatz production (“Who Want a Problem” and “Favorite Drug”). Highlights include the pensive “I’m Black”; too bad it was on the radio more than a year ago.
