Would Have Been The Best,
This review is from: Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous (Audio CD)If Big L had not died, he would have been the best ever. His hard hitting truths mixed with silky smooth flow and intoxicating voice make Big L the biggest loss to hip hop of them all. His mainstream appeal never really took off but there is undoubtedly a hint of Big L in every other rapper thereafter. Big L was the greatest MC ever to pick up a microphone yet he will always be overshadowed by the more successful artists such as Biggie and Jay Z. However, of these three NY artists, Big L was the greatest at catching a beat and undoubtledly at freestyling. This is evident in the freesyle session with Jay Z stretch and bobbito. It wasn't that Jay Z was sub par that day, but Big L wass just too good. L's clever punchlines and metaphors make him the true king of NY. Who else could cme up with the witty line, "mad hoes ask beavis I get nuttin but head" during a freestyle session.
Anyways, back to the album. This is pure hip hop a must own and could possibly have been the greatest album of them all, if Big L had better promotion. Every track has a great beat, great lyrics and a truly untouchable flow.

your review is spot on and if more people had similar views then maybe we could see some true hip hop get critical acclaim. Im from just outside London and it would be more than helpful if you could point me in the direction where i could find out where to see some real hip hop live.
