Major Figgas add to Philadelphia's renowned international sound with their debut offering, Figgas 4 Life. With over a dozen tracks, this album touches on everything from gangsta glory to girly glitz, as when Bianca The First Lady shines on her solo "Don't Let a N**** Stress U Girl." For the rest of the album, the Figgas cash in on cuts like "Yeah That's Us," with its strummed beat, and their early street salute, "Ya'll Can't F*** With Da Figgas." Both of these tracks come complete with infectious choruses. The Figgas fall short, however, on production choices and lyrical content on the sluggish "I Love Being a Gangsta," and the anti-hater attempt at an anthem, "It's Our Life," which carries an excruciatingly annoying hook. In spite of these few weak joints, this seven-piece group synchronizes their music and vocals well, producing a competitive album of crew cuts. --Elon D. Johnson

"I was reading other peoples thoughts on Major Figgas, and my personal thought is that they don't feel the album just because they are not from PHILLY. I'm from PHILLY(L.A. All Day!)! Lehigh Ave is where I rest my head. Major Figgas is my life, its the only thing I know. If they were to hear some of their underground (stuff) they would luv the Figgas just as much as we do in PHILLY. I'm not trying to call nobody haters or nothing but, like Spade said " if you ain't feelin this you neeed to check out your ears". So yall need to get some of their underground Cd's then listen to "Figgas for Life" and I'll bet that you all will feel like the way I feel, for sure. *iggaz can't even see, they can't change me, cause I'ma be a FIGGA FOR LIFE, FIGGA FOR LIFE!!!!!!!"
Don't get an album just cuz tha single was bangin'.....

"I gotta hand it to 'em. Yeah that's us is a tight track. But unfourtounately thats about all this cd has to offer. There were a few other tracks that held there own, but nothing even close to the single. Better luck next time."

"Major Figgas is a group that combines many styles of voices spitting about what really mean the world to you; money, cars, clothes, hoes and ballers. Tracks like 9,11,12, basically the whole album. Standout rappers are definately Gillie da Kid, Dutch and Spade. They make the album. Without their flows, this is a garbage album. With all the females that rhyme with guys in a group such as Ruff Ryder's EVE, Flipmodian RAH DIGGA and Junior mafia's LIl KIm, This Bianca is trash. Her delivery doesn't even match the skill of lacklusters such as Trina, Rasheeda or Amil. So suberb female such as EVE, Sonja Blade and Rah Digga don't worry about gettin knocked off. Ab live has okay flow needs to be worked on , same topics every flow needs to change. Bumpe has potential. Tracks such as 6,7,9,11,12,13 and 16 save the album. The one about crack kind of make me reminsce about Nas's song on It was Written about guns. Major Figgas have defiant potential to take over entertainment game but the rap game- I DOUBT THAT. 3.8 for stars just because of the top trio of GDK, Dutch and Spade. You like hearin about money, hoes and ballin buy the album, if not cop Quasimoto or some other B.S."
