La the Darkman - Heist of the Century (1998)
La the Darkman's debut album isn't exactly overlooked by Wu-Heads but it's most definitely overlooked by the hip hop general population. Released at the height of the Wu-Tang Clan's glory days, Heist of the Century runs for a little over an hour and spans eighteen tracks. La the Darkman's smooth flow is excellent on every single track especially the opening track "Lucci", "Az the World Turns" and "Wu-Blood Kin"
Production comes from Six July (who has nine tracks on the album), Havoc (of Mobb Deep - two tracks), DJ Muggs (one), 4th Disciple (four) and the RZA (also one). Raekwon co-produces "Spring Water" with Six July. The production is tight, and among the best of the Wu-Tang Killa Beez albums. Six July really knows how to put a good beat behind an MC.
