Synopsis

Amazon.com
Despite claims to the contrary, most rappers don't retire; "final" albums are more marketing ploy than graceful bow. Inevitably, as in the case of also-"retired" Too $hort, the artist resurfaces, either not content with the easy life on the other side of the mic or, more likely, still desirous of the guaranteed platinum sales a few generic songs can produce. Master P, in his alleged swan song, gives us all that and more, producing a double-length album that is perhaps the paradigmatic LP of the No Limit sound, replete with the oft-resuscitated tropes of gangsta rap and delivered over the slick formulas of the Beats by the Pound team. --Jon Caramanica

The downfall of No Limit begins
G$ | B-More, MD | 07/08/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Just 9 months after his "Ghetto D" (a solid 4 star album) and after a good amount of quality No Limit relases the past 2 years, Master P came out with "The Last Don" which was supposed to be his last album. A double disc 26 songs album, could have been a 12-14 song album that got 4 stars at best. The result, average, nothing special and after this No Limit began to slide (only a few No Limit albums are over 3 stars after this relaese if you ask me). Once again you don't get much great lyrics, just tales of gangstas and hustlin. Production is decent on some songs and not so good on others -- oddly for the Beats by the Pound crew. Craig B does 5 songs, KLC & Carlos Stephens each do 4, O'Dell & Mo B Dick each do 3, Master P, Sons of Funk, DJ Darryl each do 2 songs. Only 4 of the 26 are P solos's, so once again you get teh whole No Limit staff on the album. It has 2 almost classics, 6 songs I skip, 7 ok songs, and the other 11 are good but only a couple being real good. I'd only recommend it for huge P fans or No Limit fans, he has better work.
