Houston, TX freestyle rapper Lil' Flip started his own independent label to release his debut album, which quickly became an underground success story. In due course, the young MC attracted the attention of Sony, who offered major distribution for Flip's label and this follow-up. Perhaps the most impressive thing about UNDAGROUND LEGEND is the way that Flip manages to maintain his underground, street-real flavor and uncompromising themes without ever resorting to gangsta cliches. Throughout the album, on such tracks as "What I Been Through," "I Shoulda Listened," and "Make Mama Proud," Flip proves to be an exceptionally thoughtful philosophizer whose storytelling is filled with informed perspective and sound observations. While fully laying out the realities that lead to thug life, he declares that he'd rather kill his enemies with kindness and rather rap than fight. Positivity abounds here, not the dewy-eyed, pie-in-the-sky kind, but a positivity that feels earned and quite real.
