With energy and charisma to spare, Petey Pablo brings his kinetic spirit to the masses via his Jive debut, Diary of a Sinner: 1st Entry. The North Carolina native, who first earned his stripes with guest appearances on Mystikal's Let's Get Ready and Black Rob's "Whoa!" remix, has already attracted a strong fan base via his first single—the Timbaland-produced, electric guitar-driven "Raise Up"—which serves as a fitting introduction to Pablo's frantic world. To his credit, Pablo has no problem following his own tune. Bucking many hip-hop conventions, his Southern-fried flow is in a category all its own. In addition to Timbaland, Diary of a Sinner features the handiwork of Chucky Maddness, Abnormal, and Pablo himself.—RH
