Boston's Mr Lif starts off his album with an intriguing concept. He depicts a conversation between two men about Mr Lif having to go into hiding, because he's so dangerous.. and has something to say.. We the listeners are left eagerly anticipating for Mr Lif to bless the mic..and bless the mic he does.
Now for the most part, his album delivers good content.. Songs like the jazzy flavored 'Pull Out Your Cut', 'The Unorthodox' and the politically charged 'Home of the Brave' are definitely on point.. Home of the Brave in particular delivers a stinging message that many artists have been afraid to embrace about America's hypocrisy in the War on Terrorism post 9-11..
There are a couple of slow spots on this album like Heavy Artillary and Phantom.. But even on those Mr Lif delivers sizzling rhymes..
