Talking 30 Greatest No Limit Records Releases

From 1991 to 2003, No Limit Records put out some 85 releases. Here are the best of the best.


30. 504 Boyz: Goodfellas 2000 - Originally a super group formed in 1998 featuring Master P, Mystikal and Silkk the Shocker, thie album wasn't released until 2000, by then Mystikal had left the tank ...
29. Lil Ric: Deep N Tha Game 1994 - Richmond era No Limit rapper Lil Ric dropped this heater in 94, featuring JT the Bigga Figga.
28. Master P: 99 Ways To Die 1995 - The first MP album to chart in the spring of 95' the beginning of MP's empire.
27 Silkk the Shocker: Charge It 2 Da Game 1998 - Silkk dropped some bangers on this joint, like No Limit Soldier.
26. West Coast Bad Boyz, Vol. I: Anotha Level of the Game 1994 - While this wasn't the album to put No Limit on the map, P's previous joint, it was the first to chart and showed Master P's entrepreneurship is getting some of the Bay's best on one record.
-----
25. Magic: Sky's the Limit 1998 - If you remember this as a future release in other No Limit releases, this was actually the first release through TRU Records (C-Murder's label) but TRU was under the inprint No Limit, so it counts ...
24. Steady Mobb'n: Pre-Meditated Drama 1997 - Riding off the success of their hit single "If I Could Change" they were the first Bay Area artist since MP set up shop in New Orleans in late 95'.
23. Master P: MP Da Last Don 1998 - Supposedly Percey's last album, it charted a week before it was released at 95 (how'd that happen?)
22. Kane and Abel: Am I My Brother's Keeper 1998 - Their second release, did y'all know this charted at #5 on the Pop charts in June of 98'? No Limit was pwnin'.
21. Tre-8: Ghetto Stories 1995 - Forgotten soldier. Was probably with No Limit for les than a year, but dropped a hard hitter in 95'. His flow ws different from most NO rappers, y'all should give this a listen.
-----
20. Snoop Dogg: The Game Is To Be Told, Not To Be Sold 1998 - Changed his name, and record label but everything else stayed the same. The most anticipated album in the rap game in 1998, he didn't disappoint. Topped the chart for 3 straight weeks and went quad-platinum.
19. Mia X: Mama Drama 1998 - Shortly after Snoop dropped, it was time for the biggest Mama to drop her third (and most successful) LP.
18. C-Murder: Trapped In Crime 2000 - Could an album cover and title ever depict the future ... It was jammin' though.
17. Snoop Dogg: No Limit Top Dogg 1999 - Everyone knows how Master P/No Limit promoted their artist, well this record was promoted in Snoop's debut joint with the label. It did drop (though the cover was altered.) It didn't hit number one on the charts like his debut (#2) but featured appearances from his old stompin' grounds like Dre, Nate Dogg, Dazz and Kurupt and the No Limit Soldiers.
16. Silkk: The Shocker 1996 - The album that changed is name. People hate on Silkk, but his rapping style was different back then, check him out, he ain't takin' no shorts.
-----
15. C-Murder: Life or Death 1998 - Could an album cover and title ever depict the future ... It was jammin' though ... Same as above, but so TRU.
14. Skull Duggery: Hoodlum Fo' Life 1996 - Another forgotten soldier along with Tre-8. What made this different from other NL releases is that it featured virtually no guest artist.
13. Mystikal: Unpredictable 1997 - His first with the Tank and his best with the tank. Featured everyone from E-40 o Snoop Doggy Dog (before he joined No Limit months later.)
12. Mia X: Unlady Like 1997 - Her second appearance (and her second album.) She bought the big guns for this record with Foxy Brown and Salt-N-Pepa.
11. Fiend: Street Life 1999 - Fiend was one of the top dogs for the tank and this record didn't disappoint. If featred virtually no guest artist, hell the Cornell didn't even bless this record.


THE TOP TEN



10. West Coast Bad Boyz, Vol. II1997 - The second of three volumes in this set. SInce P' was bigger in 97' than 94' it featured bigger artist from the West like Westside Connection, E-40, Mac Dre and Brotha Lynch Hung.



9. Soulja Slim - Give It 2 'Em Raw 1998 - Yep, and it was raw, and Soulja gave it to em. a No Limit classic with bangers every where.



8. Mac: Shell Shocked 1998 - Probably the best lyricist on No Limit, Mac had been with the tank since 96 and finally dropped in the late dummer of 98' and it was worth the wait. The record went Gold.



7. Fiend: There's One In Every Family 1998 - A year after making his debut on the tank, this record dropped Mr. Wamp-Wamp was here now.



6. TRU: TRU 2 Da Game 1997 - TRU: TRU 2 Da Game 1997[/b] - Their first release as just the Miller boys (previously conceived of the Miller boys, King George, Big Ed, Cali G and Milk Man - I still don't know who 'Milk Man' is yet.)



5. Master P: Ice Cream Man 1996 - The man who told you how to make crack was finally on top of the rap game. This was the first (but not last) platinum album for his No Limit Record inprint.



4. Down South Hustlers: Bouncin’ and Swingin’ 1995 - Contrary to popular relief, Tupac's All Eyez on Me wasn't the first double rap album, this was. It featured UGK (who should have been on No Limit they were on more than half their releases) Eightball and MJG and soldiers before they were soldiers like Soulja Slim, Skull Duggery, Tre-8 and Full Blooded.



3. I'm Bout It Soundtrack 1997 - P bought No Limit into our homes with the release of the straight to film. The soundtrack wasn't bad either. Was their first #1 album on the charts.



2. TRU: True 1995 - TRU's 3rd release, this is a classic. The first Gold record on No Limit it featured the title to the movie in the post above.



1. Master P: Ghetto D 1997 - The most successful album in No Limit History. Ten million sold, it sold right around 800,000 in the wee of it's debut and featured Make Em Say Ughh!

I am not going to lie...No Limit and Cash Money were my guilty pleasure...they weren't bad like nowadays.

TRU 2 Da Game was banger album...it's one of my favorite album.

On No Limit albums I liked (Life or Death, Shell Shocked, Ghetto Dope, Ice Cream Man, Tru 2 Da Game, Unlady Like, There's One In Every Family, MP Da Last Don, Unpredictable, I'm Bout It Soundtrack, Kane & Abel - 7 Sins.

I actually think 7 Sins better than Am I My Brother's Keeper

Listen to early Silk, completely different. Once he changed his name, it was over ...

BG and Slim aren't brothers. Full Blooded (remember him) is BG's cousin though.

Believe me, I actually I have his first cd, "The Shocker"....it wasn't bad album. Charge It 2 Da Game, wasn't bad either but still he can't rap. I think The Shocker is etter than Charige It 2 Da Game.....I believe Silkk The Shocker fked Beyonce before Jay-Z did.

Hey L.Kizzle....do you have a "Smoking Green" song off Tru 2 Da Game album/tape because it doesn't have a song off of cd that I have...I am sure it's on tape.

If you do then upload that song.

I'm talkin' bout even before "The Shocker" album. His flow was different. Check out True or an early Master P or No Limit record.

Yeah, they brothers but not by blood. They from the same hood, real close, grew up together. If they was bros, they'd have been on the same label, or did more tracks together. After booth left NL/CMR, where was the brother duet album. Also, when Slim wasn't with a label and BG was with CMB, you would have heard Slim (or Magnolia Slim) on some cuts, hell Mac was on some early BG records.

That was on the first edition of "TRU 2 a Game." After the success of Ghetto D they re-released it (later that same year) with that song deleted and two solos each by C-Murder and Silkk the Shocker.


Ay remember King George??

I have it but I didn't like it, Tru 2 Da Game was better than TRU.

You might be right but I actually remember BG said himself that they actually real brother by blood. Magnolia Slim = Soulja Slim right?


MR. Magic was cool.

Oh, Interesting....I didn't know that....new to me. I always thought it's gotta do with the cassette & cd....it seems to me that cassette got have more songs than CDs. Nas - It Was Written ( on the cassette, they have "Silent Murder" and "Pray", etc. & Mobb Deep on the cassette Murda Muzik "Trill Me" and there's a lot of song that missing.

Ay remember King George??

Yeah, I know him....he's whack. Dude, I am old hip-hop head with the lyrical music but No Limit & Cash Money were my guilty pleasant but they are still whack but at least they got their own styles.
