    Product Details

    Summary

    Mr. Lif's albums have always had their finger on the pulse of America but I Heard It Today is his coup du sort. Boldly holding a mirror to the face of society, Lif has blended veteran producers such as Edan and J Zone with up and coming producers Willie Evans Jr., Batsauce, Therapy, and Headnodic to create an album that speaks brazenly about the current political issues and agendas Americans and the global community are facing: fear, paranoia, and angst as the U.S. economy collapsed and the bailout bill passed, self hatred in the Black community, and the housing crisis are just a few of the topics touched on through I Heard It Today. Lif takes these negatives and turns them on their head, using them in search of a healthier way of life and a way to achieve freedom and peace of mind through the power of the imagination. In a true "change starts with you" move, Lif is self-releasing the album on his new Bloodbot Tactical Enterprises label on April 21st 2009.

    Comment: Lif's best album, I'm happy that he got away from Def Jux because of obvious reasons. This album holds a hand-ful of Lif's best work in it...one of the best in the game.

    Comment: I've been a fan of Lif since his debut album Enters the Collosus. I miss the imagination and flow in that album. I miss Insight and Lif too. That had the best album cover, and possibly still does. The best track on this album has to be "Head High". Sounds like the older songs. The best. I'm more concerned about 2012 now to be thinking too much about politics. This is still a good album, just not as interesting and ILL.

    Comment: I am a huge Lif fan and I had to listen to this album a few times through to really appreciate it. Some of the beats could have been better though, and contrary to what timothy billups says, I would of loved to hear some el-p beats on this. company flow forever. Lif does his thing on this for sure

    Comment: Honestly, I'm just not feeling this joint at all. I was never overwhelmed by Mr. Lif as an emcee to start, but there's just something missing. He's too monotone vocally for my liking. I won't go as far to say he's a bad emcee, he's just not as hyped up as everyone makes him out to be.

    Comment: This album is really good. I don't like the track with bahamadia. I think the hook and the beat on that track are what kill it. The best track on the album is Head High for sure it reminds me of some deep pink floyd shit.

    Comment: A++ on the social/political content, but not quite the flow that I-Phantom had... Personally I love Lif for the 'jugular vien' type of vibe, but you won't find any of that imagination here...

    Comment: not as good as emergency rations but overall a strong release, the only weak beat is the one lif does himself, don't get me wrong my fav lif track is juglar vein and with this release you only get some of that hunger lif has been known to spit on the mic.
