Big Ed

Big Ed's debut album is one of those albums that I thought was just so-so upon first listen but turned out to be a keeper later on down the road. There really isn't anything contained on this disc that I would call required listening and, granted, it's a No Limit release after all and I didn't expect much in the way of gems from that label. The Assassin is a solid album when graded against other gangsta rap albums, though. Ed did managed to drop two more albums before succumbing to cancer in 2001, but neither of those are as good as his debut. Back in '98 this was worth checking out for the Beats By The Pound production alone -- it's incredibly dated and generic now, but it was pretty decent when it dropped. Give it a shot. You might like it.
