iTunes Review

Thoughtful, topical, politically charged, and lyrically dense, Mr. Lif’s fifth album espouses knowledge beyond hot-button political stories: housing problems, police brutality, black pride, and urban anger. Despite predating the Obama administration, his agitprop hip-hop transcends era. No matter the year, some social ills never get healed.

Hip-Hop 101 @ Its Finest!

Yes, Lif is educatin' the masses(underground hip-hop headz) with this new lp which contains raw lyrics and beats that'll snap necks. He keeps it comin' from beginning 2 end and it's emcees like Lif that keep me away from hip-pop and r&b(rap and bulls#!t). Can't wait 'til the next Perceptionists album comes out.

Lif is in my top 5 along with Mos, Atmosphere. Fans will bump this, while others (above) just wont get it.

Born Jeffrey Haynes, Mr. Lif grew up in the Boston, Massachusetts suburb of Brighton, attending college for two years before focusing on a music career. He released his first single, "Elektro,"...
