Bushwick Bill – Little Big Man (1992)Standouts: “Little Big Man” “Ever So Clear” “Copper To Cash”
Bushwick Bill almost sounds like a Five Percenter on the Little Big Man intro as he disses America and the Statue of Liberty while big-upping wisdom, knowledge and overstanding. Then he jumps into the organ-driven “Little Big Man” and all debauchery is restored – “Gougin’ out your fuckin’ eyeballs and then I skullfuck you, bitch.” Produced mostly by Lil’ J, Little Big Man keeps the organs consistent throughout the production, but it’s Bushwick Bill who makes you keep listening.
The songs here paint the picture of a tortured artist, but his delivery is focused, whether it’s maniacal or kicked back. His elastic way with words is what made him an integral part of the Geto Boys, and the ability to make fun of himself on his own solo record endeared him to fans while also granting him the ability to lash back with over-the-top vignettes of violence. He’s got a special appetite for legs, and not the ones from frogs either.
