Lifestylez ov da poor and dangerous hit the stores in 1995 on March 28th
and to quote Big L himself from an interview with 'Hip-hop Connection'
"The album sold pretty good. It did well, extremely well when you take into account that it didn't get much airplay or video play but peoples still sent out and supported it. If you took the promotion and video play away from some other artists, they couldn't sell what I sold. It sold just by word of mouth. People were like, ‘Big L is hot, we like him’, not because the label put me out there or supported me."
producers included Buckwild, Lord Finesse & Showbiz

with songs such as:

* PUT IT ON
* M.V.P.
* DANGER ZONE
* LIFESTYLEZ OV DA POOR & DANGEROUS
and 'No endz, no skinz'
