I'm suprised I'm the first to review this- I would say this is one of the best albums of the last decade. I'll admit, it took me a while to listen to this (I try to avoid most rappers with "Little" in their name) but this is some real boom bap shit. Vic has a sick flow and advanced rhymes with witty lyrics. The production is also top notch.

My favorite tracks are "Carry The Weight", "After All I've Done" and "It's My Turn". This album is a must hear in my opinion, criminally slept on my the masses.

Overall, I'll give it 9.5/10

Give it a spin and tell me what you think

Undeservedly overlooked album. I remember some mixtape that came out by Vic right before this that was pretty good as well, can't remember the name of it though, and I lost it when my hdd crashed..

It picks up a little slow with decent beats, but not enough to make up for Vic's rather weak delivery. He got a good flow, but really no voice to stand out from the run-of-the-mill rappers. The Evil That Men Do is the first track that really stands out. Dope beat by Buckwild that fits Vic perfectly. "It's for the money / not the root of evil, but a branch of it / Ego blends it in with temptation, can be cancerous"..

Dying Slowly follows it up well, but the chorus is rather weak. Vic's trying to sing on a couple of hooks on this, and he honestly just ain't much of a singer, dude got that "rapper singing hooks almost charmingly bad"-style. After Dying Slowly, the album falls a bit in quality, before it picks up with the DJ Premier produced The Exorcist, which is the real gem of the album. The album continues going strong, with all songs coming after The Exorcist being dope, rememberable joints. Some nice production, a great collab with Kool G Rap and dope flows adds up to an enjoyable listen by a somewhat forgettable, although talented (but like he says himself, "some for the content, all for delivery"), rapper.

Noteable tracks: The Evil That Men Do, The Exorcist, Caked Up, Sister Morphine

7.75/10



Anyone know what happened to this dude by the way? Never heard anything after this album dropped.
