"Title Track" Thursday

Big L - Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous

Produced By: Lord Finesse

"If I catch you on a late night black, you're gettin stuck jack/My moms told me to get a job, fuck that/Ay yo picture me gettin a job/Takin orders from Bob, sellin corn on a cob/Yo, how the hell I'm gon make ends meet/Makin about $120 a week"

The lines above all but describe this banger from Big L. There weren't too many opportunities available to young men of color (depending on what inner city/area you were in), however, this song makes the case of doing what it took to make it and survive, especially on the streets. Big L paints that verbal picture oh so well here in fast paced fashion, straight to the point.
*4 out of 5*
