Lil Ken – Back II The Stable was Lil Ken’s comeback album which served as a follow-up to Str8 Out The Stable. Lil Ken – Back II The Stable has some of the best freestyles and lyrical flows San Antonio rap has to offer. SA-Town’s Mouthpiece never fails to disappoint audiences. Now Lil Ken was in his prime when his sophomore album dropped because 3rd Degree Entertainment was already a mainstay in Texas rap by that point. This album solidified his status in San Antonio rap history even further with an increased presence. As usual Lil Ken wrecked that hoe. Back II The Stable is considered to be a 210 classic! Back II The Stable is the epitome of Southern rap in the 2000s. (At least for Texas.)
However Lil Ken felt his sophomore album did not get the right push due to label issues with 3rd Degree Entertainment. Somehow and for some reason(s) 3rd Degree Entertainment decided to not promote the Back II The Stable album as heavily as they did with the Str8 Out The Stable album. Sadly the album did not reach full potential as he anticipated due to a lack of promotion. However this album was constantly promoted at Disc N Tapes Solutions as that is the business service which 3rd Degree Entertainment used to press up their albums on CDs. People remember seeing this album advertisement on display at when they went there to press up their CDs.
SA Towns Mouthpiece is one of the best lyrical freestyles on the album. That shit was banging as he laced the dope ass freestyle. SA-Town’s Mouthpiece never fails to disappoint audiences. Diplomats – My Love was the sample used in SA Towns Mouthpiece.
The song starts off with the lyrics, “It’s Lil Ken from the Nawf/So much ice look like people skiing in my mouth/I kick em to the floor” That is the icy cold punchline he uses for his lyrical delivery on the song which was a genius way to start everything off with.
Best Of Both Worlds has some of the best punch lines and flows San Antonio rap has to offer. Lil Ken and Lil E step up to the plate to offer their best flows and cadence. Lil Ken wrecks the flows while Lil E is on the hooks while staying on beat. As usual Lil Ken wrecked that hoe. That shit was banging as he laced the dope ass freestyle.
Best Of Both Worlds has some sick ass punch lines too. Lil Ken uses is know for using some sick ass punch lines. Here are some examples below.
“Ya’ll niggaz got more problems than a college math book.”
“The train’s off the tracks/Starch in my slacks/Watching MTV Raps”
“I started rapping/My pockets started busting out the seams”.
I rate this album 5/5*****!
