Mr. Lif Mo' Mega
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Definitive Jux
After doing time with stellar Def Jux outfit The Perceptionists, the thick-dreadlocked Mr. Lif locks street poetry into massive beats throughout Mo' Mega. Fueled with a political savvy and social conscience unheard in some time, Lif does not confuse meaning and songwriting, and he never allows message to override a dope hook. And Mo' Mega is full of them: the driving "Ultra-Mega," the guitar rockin' "Brothaz," and the record's most unique cut, the dancehallton "Washitup." The Boston MC gets his hustle and flow together on a record certain to lif' him to the status of lyrical legend.
