Despite obvious physical challenges and a lifetime of hardship and misfortune, Bushwick Bill has defied the odds to become one of the WORST rappers in the game. Seriously. Have you ever heard another rapper as off-time as Bill? Have you ever heard another rapper mispronounce as many words or delve into subject matter as repellent or intentionally "controversial"? Have you ever heard another rapper rhyme "nuthin" and "fuckin" so frequently? He's awful.
But that doesn't mean his first non-Geto Boys solo effort, Little Big Man, isn't a classic. Quite to the contrary, in fact. Despite Bill's best attempts to sabotage it with his slow wit and shameful cadence, LBM straddles a fine line between Miami booty-bass trunk jams, early-90's Dirty South horrorcore, and straight-up gangsta rap, managing to remain truly offensive in a time and place where being offensive had become the norm. Yes, Bill is a misogynistic, violent, hateful, stupid, loud little fucker. But you would be too if you were that shitty of a rapper.
BUSHWICK BILL - UNIVERSAL SMALL SOULJAH (2001)
There is literally NOTHING good about the music on this album. Complete garbage. Stop reading.
But there's something about the juxtaposition of words and images here that I can't help but find kind of charming. The fact that Bill chose to name it after the 1992 Van Damme-Lundgren sci-fi/action star vehicle of the same name, adding the word "small" in the middle... The early-00's Master P vibe to it... That cover art... JESUS, that cover art!
I dunno. This is terrible, just terrible.
High as shit
