Personally, the really best Big L album. Both L's delivery and production much more rafinated than on Lifestylez. I give it 10/10.

u crazy

Lifestylez is definetly waaaay better but this album is still a banger


how can u like his delivery on this better? his lyrics were the craziest i ever heard on lifestylez it was much better cuz he was alive durin it's entire recording and there are few guest appearances as oppose to a whole lot on big picture dont get me wrong they are both classics but im just sayin u gotta know lifestylez is the better album here


9/10

would of been a 10/10 if L was alive for the whole album to be recorded


R.I.P Big L

i'll give it an 8.5 out of 10.

The whole album seemed like it was just thrown together, and in some ways it was. Just like how Pac's post death albums don't flow well, this album was just all over the place. Still, Big was on poin throughout the album. It seemed like there were too many guests at times too. I give LOTP&D a 9.7/10 by the way.

hahaha fucking L dickriders ove hea........this is yet another case of dickriding an artist cause he's dead and this album is his half career. Y'all need to face that this album isnt anything more than decent. Its got way too many fillers like Deadly Combination and The Heist Revisited to name a few.....

This album is 7/10 and thats being generous

RIP Big L

I'd give it a 9. Just like Tauro, this was my intro to L, and it made me really want to get LOTP&D. His debut was better, but this is still hot.

I like the intro with Gang Starr telling everybody to put their "L"s up and then shouting "BIG L! BIG L! BIG L!".

L was so talented, but hardly anybody knows who he is. I was playing one of his songs and none of my friends had a clue who he was.

RIP Big L

good album. i am a much bigger fan of Lifestylez not just for its content but also because i meet so many people who think Big L is the greatest ever but have never heard Lifestylez. They think they are so smart and underground because they have this album and call him their favorite yet they have never heard his classic banger. Fuck is wrong with these kids?

I hope niggas realize that big l produced half of the tracks on the album. imagine if he completed everything - it would be a definitive classic with no comments about being inferior to lifestylez, being average at best. it would've been a milestone in hiphop considering what the tracks he made for the album

a freestyle history is better. the majority of this shit is made up of freestyles that can be found on harlem's finest. production fails. 6/10. L is tight lyrically on it but the guest spots and production kill it

lyrics - 9/10
production 5/10
overall - 6/10

Yeah but he didn't though so what you just said doesn't matter AT ALL. And you can't even know that for sure.

And as for guest spots, I agree, but some guest spots were tight as fuck. (BDK, KGR, Sadat)

Hey Claustrofobic, you really should show more respect you punk ass bitch. Who the fuck are you to say people are only dickriding Big L because he is dead? You clearly haven't heard Big L's shit on Children of the Corn, or D.I.T.C, and probably haven't even heard Lifestylez OR the Archives. So maybe you should shut the fuck up? Big L was one of the best rappers of all time, which is why many people place him alongside biggie and pac as one of the slain martyrs of hip-hop.


go fuck yourself dawg. punk ass kid from glasgow, I should beat you to death with one of my Big L albums.

co-sign. Lifestylez has an overall feeling to the album that makes it superior from start to end, with the beats with the rhymes and flow. it's funny to hear the guests go hard as a bonus also (jay-z, murder mase and cam'ron lol). one of my favorites DITC albums!
