Any serious hiphop head will now that J-Live has been around for a minute now, and he has to easily be one of the most underrated and slept on MC's EVER. yes EVER. J aint like your normal MC, for 1) hes simply better than most MC's out at the moment but 2) he is one of the most intelligent MC's ever to pick up a mic...considering he used to be an english teacher. Now examples of his superior lingustic skills are displayed on the track MCee. This has to be one of the most intelligently created concept tracks ever produced...not just because of the way that he starts every letter with an M or C, not just because he also informs us about what the nature of a real MC actually is but its because of the way that he completely rips up the track, flawlessly with energy that only a head that understands will appreciate. Now, I know what you're saying; "that aint nothing fresh, some Mc's do the whole alphabet in one track!"...Now like i said above, its not ALL about what rhymes hes doing, its how he does it...showing his experience in the underground. Now, you would think that since I'm going on so much about one track the album must be quite inconsistent...WRONG! It keeps its consistency yet variety throughout ensuring that any true hiphop head gets what they want. For example, Tracks like "How Real it is" talk about being a Man and holding your own...whilst Satisfied? (Viewed as the best J-Live track by some) talks about the events of 9/11 and similar issues in America that makes you just want to stand up with your fist in the air...saying damn this is the truth. Showcasing his more creative and storytelling abilites tracks like "one for the griot" which is one truly intriguing story that undergoes a variety of different twists!Read more ›

NOW IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS ALBUM, READ THIS REVIEW. DONT IGNORE IT BECAUSE IT'S LONG!
With that said...Slept on by many, All of the above is the epitmoe of hiphop; Amazing lyrics, flow, stories, beats, samples, scratches & concepts all into one. J-Live; one of the most slept on and underrated MC's in the entire history of hiphop, with this release, has proven just why he is considered to be of the most intelligent and creative Mc's ever to emerge from the underground. Now, the reason why so many slept on this is probably because it does not initially have the same impact that the "best part" did (and still does due to it having finally being released properly)as the best part showcased tight lyrics but even better beats w/guys such as DJ Premier, Pete Rock & other respectable producers. Whereas, All of the above is more of a lyrics & concept album...in this respect it is literally flawless. Proof of this is the exceptional joint "MCee" where J-Live threads the letters "M" and "C" into the starts of words, sentences and so many other places so brillianly it's no wonder he was an English Teacher. Now, I know peeps will be saying "yeh, well that aint original...some guys do the entire alphabet" So what...its the way in which J-Live lets his flow rip up the track and makes it rhyme at the same time.

What you could say about j-live is that he sometimes places content over flow, but don't worry, he has managed to keep his flow very nice so you become top lyrics with a nice sometimes a little weird flow.
When I say "weird" I do not mean weird like Quasimoto or Declaime...
If you would like to give some (constructif) comments on this lp you could say that it isn't really one (thin red) line.
What makes j-live so wonderfull is his freshness.
He rhymes so fresh, you can almost taste his love for hip-hop as you hear him rapping...
I can't wait to see him live-

A quality album from a quality artist. Given that J-Live' 1st album has only just become officially available on CD his fans must have thought xmas had come early. An amusing intro with references to hip-hop classics and previous cuts. Some cool tracks 'MC' and my favourtie 'Anna' and you don't often say this but some funny skits too. Maybe trying too hard?
