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

This was my introduction to Big L and I thought it was dope, made me want to get his first album.

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?
