Since Public Enemy’s presence these days is a bit scarce, Mr. Lif is probably the most politically charged emcee currently releasing albums. While others have tried to fill the shoes of Chuck and Flav, Lif actually knows what he is talking about. Forget wild conspiracy theories about the Illuminati or who really is responsible for [cont.]

  Almost ten years since his first appearance on the Rebel Alliance EP, Mr. Lif is just beginning to become a household name with the cool crowd. Although Mo’ Mega marks his second full-length solo release for Definitive Jux, it’s actually his fifth release for the label, also clocking two EP’s (Enters The Colossus and [cont.]

     Before Enter the Colossus, Emergency Rations, or his first full length album I Phantom, Boston emcee Mr. Lif was just a hungry talent who devoured beats in an attempt to make a name for himself. Over the next few years with his distinct nasal flow, Lif has drawn a tremendous following. A following consisting [cont.]

“When we met I left a negative impression / yet another state of metaphosis.” says Mr. Lif on “The Unorthodox”, perhaps referring to the slightly more aimless fantasy battle rhyme style he showed us on Enter The Colossus, as his new EP presents a more focused version of our hero, in the post-September 11th U.S.A. Mr. [cont.]

While Boston’s Mr. Lif used Emergency Rations to get some shit off his chest about the U.S. government, I Phantom is more of a self-examination of how our hero of the downtrodden fits into the system. Billed as a concept album, (more Book Of Human Language than Prince Among Thieves), this loose-knit narrative begins in [cont.]

Birthed on the now infamous “Rebel Alliance” EP, which introduced the world to Boston indy heavyweights such as 7L & Esoteric & Virtuoso, Mr. Lif has built a name for himself, releasing several indy 12” singles, on several different labels. From Brick to Grand Royal, Lif finally lands on El-P’s new Def Jux imprint, letting us get [cont.]

I dig Lif’s sh*t because this MC’s got personality. Yeah, at times, his rhyme scheme can feel a little awkward and forced but 1) his voice is just so f*cking ill, like he’s a career smoker about two packs away from a larynx operation and 2) even he does force it, you can’t help but admire [cont.]
