Tattoos & Roses: The Rebellion Against My Pain is another Lil Mo album that never was due to having the name of the album title changed. Lil Mo scrapped the whole album after realizing her foundation and sound wasn’t what she wanted it to be. She bases her songs off love. Not pain and rebellion. So she retitled the album from Tattoos & Roses: The Rebellion Against My Pain to P.S. I Love Me which was released in 2011.
The album, Lil Mo – Tattoos & Roses: The Rebellion Against My Pain was supposed to be released in 2009 with a distribution deal with Global Music Group. The album was intended to be a double album, half of it being a live production. She also had a two-album contract with Global Music Group during this time. Tattoos & Roses: The Rebellion Against My Pain was said by her publicist to have taken the music industry by storm. “The talented recording artist has some explosive hits that are sure to take the entertainment industry by storm”.
Tattoos & Roses: The Rebellion Against My Pain was supposed to be the follow-up album to Pain & Paper. Tattoos & Roses: The Rebellion Against My Pain was Pain & Paper revisited.
Lil Mo promises to her man that she will never cheat on him again. She expresses how sorry she is for cheating on him on Will Never Do That. When Lil Mo and her man first hooked up, she made promises and didn’t mean to break any of them. But here she stands, begging him to forgive her and she’ll never let anything else come between, him trusting her, her trusting him, him loving her, and her loving him. She will never cheat on him again. Lil Mo puts put that on everything she loves. It was such a waste to think that a few minutes of pleasure almost cost Lil Mo a lifetime of pain. It will take some time for him to see and understand that Lil Mo really means this from the bottom of her heart.
One for the Road is revisits the same One for the Road song from her Pain & Paper album from 2007. This version is completely different from the 2007 version. This version uses autotune and is more upbeat. Much more than the mid tempo version.
I rate this album 4/5****!
