Da Last Don

Da Last Don

Da Last Don represented Master P’s No Limit empire at its absolute zenith. With a guest list that showcases almost all of the label’s heavy hitters, P’s double-album colossus also serves as a primer for a label riding a creative surge in 1998. Produced almost entirely by No Limit’s in-house production team of KLC, Mo B. Dick, and Craig B, the best songs —“Hot Boys & Girls,” “Eternity,” “So Many Souls Deceased,” and “Let My 9 Get ‘Em”— showcase a biting claustrophobia that was a direct reflection of life in the New Orleans ghetto. There are moments of striking, if pessimistic, lucidity like P’s verse on “Black & White:” “And tell me Hilfiger discriminate and sell us clothes / But we can't blame him ‘cause we don't support the black stores.” Though P’s sometimes-wearisome flow might be a bit too derivative of Tupac, the album is amazingly focused and consistent, especially considering all the criticism that has been thrown at No Limit over the years. With appearances ranging from the Midwest (Bone Thugs-N-Harmony) to the West Coast (Snoop Dogg, E-40) to Texas (UGK), Da Last Don proves that for a fleeting moment, No Limit wasn’t just an influential label but a nationwide movement.
