5.0 out of 5 stars You're Nobody Until Somebody Kills You. March 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
Big L,
Is by far one of the most clever MC's ever grasp the mic. He resurrected Harlem in the early 90's. A time when Harlem had very few hip-hop artists, some of whom were ashamed of there own area. Big L and Kool Moe Dee are probably the greatest MC's ever to rise from the Harlem streets. What kills me about this, is how so many folks jumped on Big L's jock after he was brutally murdered. Let's face it, a large majority of these reviewers only became interested Big L overnite. Why do you think his posthumous album "The Big Picture" is certified gold? Why couldn't everyone see this raw talent when he was living? It's become a redundant trend in music to all of a sudden pay close attention to dope artists after they pass away. If you weren't down with the underground from the jump just stay out, and keep supporting that garbage you call hip hop. Quit trying to pay your respects to the soldiers you know nothing about. Some of these people in these reviews go on and on about how L was so great, but don't probably even own any of the other DITC family albums. God forbid if O.C. dies...I garauntee will see some more bandwagon dikridders up in here, talking about how great he was, when they didn't know squat about the man when he was alive. Personally when L died that was my worst Valentine's Day ever in life. He was truly an inspiration that taught us that being underground in hip hop can still be simplistic as hell while using witty punchlines, instead of complex as hell... with deep metaphors. If you add Lifestylez to your collection, explore the entire D.I.T.C. catalog as well, peep the classic albums from Lord Finesse, Show & AG, O.C., Diamond D, and Fat Joe. Don't be a freakin tourist....support real underground hip hop. Quit coming around after somebody passes.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST EVER... June 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
THE BEST EVER RIP A MIC. THIS ALBUM WILL STILL BEAT ANY ALBUMS THAT IS OUT NOW TILL THIS DATE. THE ALBUM IS DOPE. LYRICS ARE SO SICK, BEATS COULD DO BETTER, BUT WHO CARES. IF YOU ARE JUST RIDIN ON BIG L, JUST KNOW THAT HE'S ON OTHER ALBUMS FROM D.I.T.C, SHOW@AG, AND DIAMOND D. HE'S EVEN GOT AN ALBUM HE'S MADE FROM AMSTERDAM WHEN HE DID A CONCERT BACK IN 1998. I GOT IT. IT'S REAL UNDERGROUND. HE'S EVEN GOT UNREALEASED SONGS THAT ARE DO TO COME OUT THIS YEAR OR NEXT WITH A DVD. AND THAT FREESTYLE HE DID WITH JAY-Z, HE DESTROYED JAY-Z IN A 7 MINUTE FREESTYLE. OVERALL, BIG L, IS ONE OF THE BEST, THIS ALBUM IS HELLA DOPE. COP IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the Greatest MC of all time Jan. 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this album when a mate bought it about 3 years ago and I knew straight away that I had to get a copy. L's lyrics are tight on every track and it doesn't matter how many times you hear it, it can never get repetitive or boring.
The album features 12 tracks with guest appearances by: Kid Capri on "Put It On", the 8 Iz Enuff Crew on "8 Iz Enuff" and Jay-Z on "Da Graveyard". The album kicks off with "Put It On", and is one of my best tracks, it is also a perfect way to start the album with Big L expressing himself the way he intends to go on.
The second track on the album is "MVP" and was one of the tracks released as a single. L's delivery and flow throughout the song is second to none and on this track he really does show that he was the Most Valuable Poet.
Personally, I think that every track on the album is excellent, including "Da Graveyard" which features Jay-Z, but as much as I dislike Jay-Z's music, his delivery hear is much more impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost File In The Hip-Hop Archive Oct. 22 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In the present state of Hip-Hop, it's amazing to find the incredible gems that have been lost in the "commercial" fray. Take for instance, Harlem native Big L, who was killed in '99. He attributed to "Real" street Hip-Hop, with his debut off of Columbia in '95 called "Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous". I was a slave to the commercial rhythm until I heard the powerful single "MVP" straight off this album. The entire album hits many conceptual peaks, from Big L's point of view out of 139th street in Harlem known as the Dangerzone. The first song single is "Put It On" with a great Kid Capri Melody that is a spotlight for Big L's suave flow. Next comes the low-tempo ruggish "MVP" in which the hardcore metaphors come out. The next few tracks all approach different levels lyrically and conceptually and one standout is "Da Graveyard". This track spotlights a young Jay-Z, who is being "Put On" by Big L in his first big appearance. Later in the album, "Fed Up Wit The Bullsh*t" is a great narrative of everyday happenings in NYC which pit unfair young black man against the crutching streets. And last but definitely not least is "Let 'Em Have It L", where L lashes out with a lyrical rage. Spitting such legendary rhymes as "1, 2, 1, 2.. fools I run through.. F*ck Karate, I practice Gun Fu.. Step to this and get shanked up.. I knocked out so many teeth the tooth fairie went bankrupt.."
When I heard this CD I was hooked. By his incredibly smooth, yet hard hitting flow, captivating narratives, to his somber street anthems and evil melody. He did it all in this album, and in his very own way. No one sounded like him, and I believe, couldn't touch him lyrically for his time. To me I believe's another "ahead of his time" and since this album I've tracked down songs that were left off the album which have become quite possibly my favorite Hip-Hop songs to date.. If you can agree to this, check online for a hit known as "Timez Iz Hard On Da Boulevard".. A true legend.. RIP MVP
