It's a queen's life for Mia X, the female lyrical don of the No Limit stable. More competent than nearly all of her camp mates, Mia was discovered by Master P in 1994 after a brief local recording career. Besides starring on the Tru classic "Bout It, Bout It II," Mia secured her rep with a 1995 debut album, Good Girl Gone Bad--but Unlady Like is the first album of hers to receive deserved mainstream acclaim. On "The Party Don't Stop," she more than holds her own against Foxy Brown, and on "Who Got the Clout," even the mighty Mystikal can't touch her. Unlady Like is that rare thing from No Limit--a consistent, satisfying album, end to end. --Jon Caramanica

"Mia Young (aka the monkier "Mia X") first promoted word of this cd on a commercial on the 2X platinum cd "Tru 2 Da Game" (on a song called "It's My Time") Just the lyrics alone on that snippet was enough to draw the curiosity of many No Limit fans to anticipate the release of the album. Her marketing strategy was successful."Unladylike" is a groundbreaking sophomore album for Mia.The album opens with the single "U Don't Wanna Go 2 War" featuring No Limit heavyweights C-Murder, Master P, Silkk The Shocker, and Mystikal. And through that all-star cast it is Mia whoses verse is the most memorable. The first several songs show her "gangsta bravado", which she is truly the best female lyricist I've ever heard. Then she let's you into her personal side, with the song "U & Me" being the most revealing. It's the story of hustling and young love with a heartbreaking ending.Please do not read this review and pass it by. Pick up the cd. Get a used one if you have to. You will not be disappointed."

"...former weight smuggler, I'm, mother of the tank gave birth to anointing guerilla milllionaire so don't even ask...." Momma MiaI don't think my first review of this album did it enough justice. This album is BY FAR the best female mc album that I own or have ever heard. Mia X used to be an incredible mc with a knack for creating great lyrics coupled with a silky smooth flow and just a great voice. She crafted lyrics with actual meaning and could easily get gangsta on a hater. Mia X made you feel what she was saying without trying too hard. She told it to you straight up with no cookie cutter clichés just that realness that you couldn't deny.Mia X was arguably the most charismatic rapper on No Limit. Her mic presence was incredible, commanding the mic and the listeners attention with her confident voice and flow while at the same time holding it down lyrically ( she writes her own lyrics ). When she came on you just KNEW it was about to be some fire. Coming with diverse content and upper echelon beats, she released an instant classic. Starting off with the rowdy `You Don't Wanna Go To War', Mia X shows haters that this is a no limit thing and she down to ride as the first lady of the tank. Following that was the single `Party Don't Stop" which featured P and Foxy Brown. `Pity U' is possibly the most sinister song on the album with Mia X just ripping the track to confetti. Every song on the album has some value be it Unladylike and 4EverTru, or `I Don't Know Why', Rainy Dayz, and Mommies Angels. Mia X delivers the goods.Mia X is undoubtedly one of the best female rappers I have ever heard if not THE best. It's too bad that her parents passed away and she was forced to retire due to grief. I really hope she decides to make a comeback because I would give anything to hear a new Mia X album. 10 Stars...Masterpiece."

"Still the realest and best femcee album that i own. The production on this joint is flawless. Just check the haunting background of Lets get it Straight. Or the sinister beat of I pitty U sounds like some violins or something. No Femcee can touch Momma Mia. Not Eve, Da Brat, GAngsta Boo, Foxy, Kim or anyone. Mia X is too ill. THis her second album and she has three lps but this is her best one. I wonder what happened to her. She is truly a gift to the game. If you have to buy one No Limit album i suggest this one. the tightest songs include party dont stop, u dont wanna go to war, i pity u, unladylike, ill take ya man, 4ever Tru, Bring Da Drama. This is a consistent No Limit release and ive had it since the day it was released after seeing the video for Party dont stop. after that i was hooked and im sure u will be too."
