my copy matches the US first press but ive always been skeptical. it looks like a brand new reissue thats never been played. the matrix numbers match up but they are very faint. theres no other release on discogs that matches it, but im wondering if there was a bootleg that hasnt been added yet

Criminally underrated album from the 90s, but among those who know it rate it highly. Quick deliveries and some of the best one liners/punchlines;

“ I jumped out he Lincoln, left him stinkin’
Put his brains on the street
Now you can see what he was just thinkin’ “

“Battles I lose none, I make crews run
I get fools done, got ten fingers, but only use one”

“ I wasn’t poor, I was po’ – I couldn’t afford the ‘o-r’ ”

L’s lyricism partnered with D.I.T.C’s Lord Finesse, Showbiz and Buckwild’s production – creates one of the greatest horrorcore rap albums of all time. This project is extremely replayable – can’t recommend it enough.

This is the only pressing I’ve heard so I can’t compare it to others, but it is extremely clear and has almost no surface noise. Overall, very satisfied with this release, it most definitely does this sick album justice, 5/5.

RIP Big L.

Does anyone know if the hype sticker was printed on the sleeve?... i've seen a bunch of copies marked as original pressing that have the 'sticker' printed on... thanks
