Nas once said "I got so many rhymes, I don't think I'm too sane," a line which could also refer to the similarly prolific young rapper known as Lil' Flip, who, in early 2004, unleashed an ambitious, wonderfully schizophrenic double-disc set, U GOTTA FEEL ME, his third solo record. Lil' Flip garnered his rep by flowing without a net, earning himself the nickname "The Freestyle King" in his hometown of Houston, Texas. His brash style also brought him to the attention of the legendary DJ Screw, who took him into the Screwed Up Click before he embarked on a solo career.
Lil' Flip starts strong with the thriller-movie music of "I Came to Bring the Pain," featuring an outstanding guest shot by the king of guest shots, Ludacris. Flip shows an immense diversity, waxing introspective and reverent on the sweetly 1980s-style "Sun Don't Shine," following that with the stridently intense "Represent." The record also contains a couple of solid examples of the Screwed Up Click's trademarked slowed-down sound. A double album is always a dicey proposition, but Lil' Flip pulls it off in style with the remarkably consistent and engaging sounds of U GOTTA FEEL ME.
