Fights, feuds and cheesecake aside, "Making the Band 2" creation Bad Boy's Da Band really shines on its debut set. "Too Hot For T.V." features the sextet—MCs Babs, Ness, Freddy Pee and Young City, reggae toaster Dylan and R&B songstress Sara—keeping with the tradition of Bad Boy by concentrating on party joints. Lead single "Bad Boy This Bad Boy That," produced by Tony Dofat and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, is an infectious, flute-accented, uptempo jam that incites head nodding. The set's highlight arrives with the Wyclef Jean-produced "Do You Know," which borrows from Diana Ross' "Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)." Here, the group's six personalities completely jell. It looks as if Combs has done it again.—RH
