Comment: anyone copped the bootleg? I did, it was rumored that because J-Live had problems with the album being shelved by various labels he was on and then dropping from them because of that, he supposedly came through with the bootleg. then after five years in 2001 'The Best Part' finally officially releases independently under his own label. thats just a real example of INDUSTRY RULE #4080 RECORD COMPANIES ARE SHADYYYYY!!!. (reference from ATCQ's Check The Rhime) for some reason big labels have always been known to treat underground artist in such a way, which means in turn there is no trust in corporate big labels coming from the underground artist and also depending on the big corporate label's staff and A&Rs to whom are responsible for giving such underground artist a break. But even if the underground artist got a break on a big label which is not likely it never lasts long because in the mainstream the targeted demographics have been conditioned to consume the typical bullshit while not knowing of the underground where most talented artists dwell. the general typical mainstream mind controlled audience who have not awakened from this matrix will never know what its like to step out of the box its even sadder that they get younger and the underground movement is being phased out by the younger generation who dont know any better while the culture is being reformed with in the hands of the corporate music industry disregarding the importance of the real Hip Hop history. Hip Hop or rap music is considered a low brow movement because its the poorest form of music making something out of nothing or should I say the least with the likes of sampling which is Hip Hops strong point and also paying and giving back to the preceding original artist who was borrowed from mostly 60's funk soul jazz and maybe rock. this album has a legendary lineup of producers who are masters of digging all over the world for gems and then producing programing sequencing and engineering to make it their own. its a good thing to keep in mind of the artist situation in relation to the business of the industry and how much it takes to put a form of expression out to share with the world without compromising to anything while keeping it honest and as raw as possible.

Comment: W-o-w! This was the 1st album I got from J-Live. It is such a solid records, such variety from track to track. Many dope tracks to choose from. I prefer 'All Of The Above' by the slightest of margins but both albums should be in your collection.

Comment: A classic from beginning to end. J-Live is blessed with extreme talent on the mic. With some real head nodders and well written rhymes this is a classic album. The best thing about "The Best Part" is “Braggin' Writes."

Comment: All I gotta say is that every song is friggin ill, epilogue sends chills down my spine, wax paper is hot, them that's not is crazy. The only problem in my opinion is that I think the original version of School's In is like 10 times better than the Remix, which just uses the Raw Footage beat.

Comment: When I first got some kind of bootleg copy with a totally different cover, about a year ago, I pushed the album like heroin (not that I push heroin, but if I did). This is some good stuff J-Live. Ever since I heard that track on Mushroom Jazz Vol. 1 ("Longevity"). The dude's got skills, and "Get The Third" is ultra nice, for like breakups and general women disgruntlement. Now I gotta get the new stuff. Surprised nobody else is reviewing this.
