Classic Album Review: Mr. Servon | Da Next Level

Master P’s latest No Limits soldier is more of a lover than a fighter.

This came out in 1999 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


The latest “soldier” in rap mogul Master P’s No Limit Records army is a lover, not a fighter.

On his debut disc, Mr. Servon prays for his family and for mothers on crack, proclaims that his best friend is his girl, mourns his missing friends and lets us know God has his back (“The Lord is my shepherd / Whom shall I be afraid of?”). At least, that is, when he isn’t laying down the usual ghetto bluster and sexual swagger over the standard jeep-rocking tracks of P’s Beats By The Pound musical division. Still, when you get right down to it, Mr. Servon is more about hugs than thugs.
