Been looking for a hip-hop artist that I seriously dig for a while. Mr. Lif is it. His flows are awesome, great stories, AND new and exciting content, all over some sweet beats. Peep "new man theme". This album is one of my favs by him.

Lif is smoking on this one. This guy has the nicest flows complimented by some sick beatwork from DEF JUX crew and more. Return of the b_boy is the baddest track. The flow on part 2 is absolutely non stop and it conjurs the innermost feelings of an mc in the heat of battle.

They Say All Music Guide

Mr. Lif, the hardworking Bostonian MC, drops a debut LP that playfully discloses in lyrical fashion his inner battle of whether or not to return to his nine-to-five job, but the long-overdue record practically guarantees he’ll no longer need the day job. One of the working-class heroes signed to hip-hop indie Definitive Jux, Liffy enjoyed a busy 2002, releasing the Emergency Rations EP and appearing on several releases from the Jux camp. I Phantom is slightly less politically aggressive than the EP in overall aesthetic, with blue-collar rhymes over hype, funky tracks with great production by Fakts One, DJ Hype, Edan, and Lif himself. The guest appearances on the mic by Akrobatik, a fellow fledgling Bostonion, Edan, Aesop Rock, El-P, and Jean Grae make all the tracks quality and seal the deal on Lif’s breakthrough set. – Nic Kincaid
