One of the Better No Limit LPS from the Late 90's

"Young Bleed put out his first LP on Priority/No Limit Records. Young Bleed is really part of the Baton Rounge, Louisana group the Concentration Camp which is on C-Loc Records. He really uses No Limit Records as a way to distribute his LP since C-Loc is based on a underground label, that gives reasons why hes never on any No Limit MC's LP. Young Bleed's "My Balls and My Words", is different from other No Limit LP's because he doesn't have the loaded cameo appearances like on other No Limit MC's. There is still the same formula of tales of sex, drugs, and violence but Young Bleed's laid back voice makes the songs a easy listen to because its so laid back. Young Bleed is a better MC than the average No Limit MC and what he does wrong on this Lp is he doesn't change up his style. This LP will be most favored by people into G-Funk music over gangsta rap music like a Warren G or Snoop Dogg. But hardcore NL fans and people who listen to Baby D and Lil Jon and Eastside Boyz might not be satisfited with this because of the overall direction of Young Bleeds lyrical content. Overall this is a solid debut for a N.O. rapper."
That's How it Happenned

""Bailin' out the door on my way to the liquor store." Young Bleed spins yarns of reality. He is without a doubt the best product of the No Limit Camp. My Balls and My Word is a title that exemplifies the neccessites of a true player. Take away the expensive cars, flashy women, golden teeth, and green Gators, and what is a man left with. That's right, his courage and his word. The beats groove, but the lyrics are the draw. More than simple rhymes, the songs on this album promote thought. Young Bleed Corleone, as he calls himself, speaks of the world in all its glory and ugliness. In the end one feels as though a portrait of not only ghetto lifestyle, but the lifestyle of anyone who has worked hard to get ahead, has been vividly protrayed right in front of them. This album is not for the weak. Only the real should listen."

"This was an album full of struggle and hardship but was actually brought out in a harmonious manner. it was a n original mix of tough lyrics thrown over some instrumentals that had melody to them. It was very unique in the way it was not the traditional "No Limit, this CD was thrown together in two weeks and it shows" type of album. I'm glad he went off to C-Loc Records. Big Ups to the man holding it down for Baton Rouge."
