15 More No Limit Albums Worth Checking Out
Thanks to the good people at Complex (s/o David Drake!), I was able to pen one of my favorite pieces to date: The 25 Best No Limit Albums list. Everyone who knows me, knows I’m a NL stan, so this list was a passion piece for me.
I wish I could’ve stretched the list to 30 (or 40), but I’m thankful that any major publication would even give that much space to the Tank in 2013. I know a lot of people thought/think No Limit was super corny, but I really don’t give a shit. Read it and learn something.
Regardless of how history has been rewritten, everyone on the planet wasn’t just listening to Jay-Z, Biggie, 2Pac, Outkast, Wu-Tang and Nas in the late 90s. There was a ton of other movements that were super popping and revered, despite what the powers that be lead you to believe.
To this day, I’ve still never seen anything like the No Limit craze. White kids from the sticks getting TRU tats on their stomachs, people of all races wearing hollow NO LIMIT RECORDS chains, teenagers skipping school to be the first with Da Last Don album, etc.
I’ve always found it odd that rappers, bloggers, tweeters, etc. love to sing the praises of UGK and Eightball & MJG (knowing damn well they weren’t checking for them in their 90s heyday), but never give it up for Master P and the Tank, who were 10 times more popular. I have my theories about this, but I’ll save them for a later date.
With that being said, here are 15 albums I left off the list, but are worth checking out if the piece has you digging through NL’s catalog.
