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.

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.

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

This album is simply amazing. One of the best lyricicts I have ever seen whose style was "thuggish" other than the late B.I.G. Its a tradegy that he died so soon and his talent could only be shown through two albums. Song by song he expresses such great verbiage and wordplay, its shocking. Everything works in this album, the lyrics, the beats, its one of the best ever. Let me try and give you some quotes:
"I got juice like boco, mad crews I broke through
n*ggas be getting mad cause I hit more chicks than they spoke to"
"Battles I lose none I make crews run
I get fools done, got ten fingers but only use one"
"I was taught wise, I'm known to extort guys
This ain't Cali, it's Harlem n*gga we do walkbys"
"Cause on the shelf is where your LP cold stood
Because it was no good, that sh*t ain't even go wood"
And there's plenty more where that came from. If your a fan of hip-hip in general and brilliant lyrics, then this cd is a must have.
